One of my colleagues recommended the Hotel Collodi for a conference in Florence at the end of August. The location is excellent: close to the train station, conference center, central market, and just a few minute walk from the Duomo. The staff are friendly, professional, and helpful with directions. They helped me make a reservation for the Uffizi Gallery. My room was reasonably large with a mini refrigerator and was very clean and comfortable. There is a small but lovely rooftop terrace which we used for small meetings and to socialize. My own room, which was interior, was very quiet and I slept well. But my colleagues, whose rooms looked out at the street, had to deal with noise from a Cuban bar until late at night. The only real downer for me was the terrible breakfast which I can only describe for U.S. travelers as twinkies, wonder bread, and plastic cups of coffee/tea. After the first morning, I skipped breakfast entirely. There is a small market close by where I bought yogurt and juice.
Overall, my experience was excellent as this was a value hotel in a great location with helpful staff and a lovely room. But, if you don't plan to be out late partying, yourself, ask for an interior room and hope that they come up with better breakfast offerings.
