My wife and I chose the Hotel Davanzati in Florence, especially by the suggestion of Trip Advisor. We didn't repent. The hotel is superbly located close to the main city attractions. Ponte Vecchio, Piazza de la Signoria, Uffizi Galery, Palazzo Vecchio, Il Duomo, everyone is in a walking distance from the hotel. The Hotel is managed by a family (3 generations) and all are very friendly and helpful. A gesture of extreme kindness is the free happy hour (daily), when guests are to tasty a good wine, enjoy some snacks and put the catch up. We came by train from Rome and Santa Maria Novella station is right next to the hotel (less than 1.5 km), but if you have a lot of luggage, it is advisable to take a taxi at the terminal. The staff can reserve good restaurants, museums and even a visit to a must Vasarian Corridor undoubtedly an unforgettable experience, although expensive and difficult to achieve. The rooms are comfortable, though simple and wi fi is free. An excellent choice at a fair price.
