Florence accommodations

We're going to Florence in Sept. staying in the city for 4 days and then by rental car touring around Tuscany ending in Rome for 5 days following. Any recommendations for centrally-located accommodations in Florence that one would want to stay at again? Reasonably priced E125-E175 range? And any rural Tuscany accommodations worth repeating? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Take a look at Il Villino. It's a few blocks north of the Duomo in a very quiet neighborhood, has very helpful owners, and is close to several good restaurants. www.residenzailvillino.it We've stayed there 3 times and will again in May.

Hi Marie:

Here is what I have bookmarked re places to stay in Florence and the Southern Tuscan countryside. I never stayed in any of these places but bookmarked them based upon internet friends experiences which I would trust. I believe that all of these would be within your budget, maybe closer to the upper limit of your budget. You can cross-check these with Trip Advisor reviews.

Wow! thanks so much for the info - fortunately I enjoy research (my husband detests it!) so I'm sure this will provide me with lots to go on. Thanks again.

When in florence (3x) we always stayed at a Convent. It is very close to everything. It is right on a large square.The bus is right around the corner and takes you anywhere.

You can even walk over the bridge into the the major part of the city.

The cost is quite inexpensive for florence.

I wish I could remember the name. We haven't been there in 4 years. But is was always spotless. You can share a bath or get one in your room. We always shared and it was still spotless.

They do not have elevators so if you have many suitcases(we only travel with 1) that might be a problem.

One other problem is that most of the nuns speak only italian. HOWEVER they usually have someone at the front desk as a "helper" who is not a nun who will speak English. This is the person you will communicate with when making reservation.

there is a lovely garden out back you can go and sit in as well.

It if furnished in old antique sort of furniture but not shabby furniture by any means andt the beds are comfortable. Breakfast in the AM is sufficient but not excellent.

If you would be interested, I would try and find the name for you. I am sure I can by googling Convents in Florence.

Thanks for the suggestion Ledris. Most interesting idea. I can search convents and I'm sure I'll find it. Never thought of a convent, but it could be just the ticket!

Thank you so much, I went and check the very first link for Florence but to be honest I dont know if the rate is per person or per room? inpiazzadelasignoria, the drop down list says 1 or 2? Is that one room or 2 rooms, or 1 adult or 2 adults?
