We stayed at the best western for a couple of days in November 2011.. the hotel has an oustanding location - abt a minute's walk from the Duomo - abt an 8 min walk from the railway station - The hotel's very comfortable - free wifi in rooms, a decent american breakfast, small but clean and comfortable rooms and helpful staff - quite courteous
The concierge even recomended a day tour to chianti and sienna which was a lovely experience.
Florence is a great place to walk - we did the uffizi galeries, walked upto the ponte vechio and even to piazza michelangelo.. a long walk but lovely views of Florence across the siene and the duomo.
