I stayed in Hotel Merlini for 6 nights and I will definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Florence.
Hotel Merlini is located right in the centre of Florence. Excellent restaurants, cafes, numerous of shops, and main tourist sites such as Duomo Cathedral, Piazza Signoria, Uffizi museum and the local food market, all of which are within minutes of walk from the hotel.
It is run by an Italian family of 3 generation who offered my cousin and I warm welcome and assistance throughout our stay. We stayed in room 11 which in my opinion is the best room in the hotel with large windows on two walls of the room, giving fantastic views of the city centre including the top of the cathdral dome! The room was spacious, well-equipped, clean and not-over-priced. It is located in a safe neighbourhood among other medium-ranged hotels and B&Bs. The hotel is on the third floor of a traditional Italian terrace building without lift. We found the stairs managable and the owner of the hotel kindly helped us with the luggage all the way to our room. So don't let the stairs put you off.
