My wife and I stayed at the Laurus a few years ago, so when we took our kids to Italy last July, the Laurus was our hotel of choice in Florence.
We had our two kids in a separate adjoining room. Both rooms overlooked the street, but were very quiet.
The location of the hotel is excellent, being just down the street from the Duomo. The breakfast balcony has a great view of the Duomo, which starts the day off right, every day. The balcony is also an awesome place to have a glass of wine while the breeze cools off the city after sunset.
The Laurus won our lasting appreciation, however, with their extremely accommodating staff. There were a couple of days where the kids were tired out after a day of touring and they just wanted some plain pasta or something simple for dinner. The kitchen had no problems whipping up what the kids wanted, which made our stay there that much more enjoyable.
