I've stayed at Hotel Casci 3-4 times. The location is fantastic. My only negative comment is that their towels are like table linen - very thin! Good breakfast, wifi and AC worked.
Hi all...I was just in florence for 3 weeks in April and returning for 1 week at the end of May. I am having the best luck with AirBnB throughout Italy. However, I think the trick for Florence is to book way ahead. Example: I had a beautiful and small apartment right in the Piazza looking at the inlaid marble of Santa Maria del Fiore for $102 usd per night (this reflects a long stay discount; reg was about $120.00); when I just decided to return for another week, the best spot I could find is a new studio apt. near the Train Station for $100.00 a night. (I really like having a little kitchen to stay healthy on the road! )

A big disadvantage of Airbnb or apt rentals is you have no front desk or concierge etc.

A good site is https://www.bed-and-breakfast.it/it/ BUT it doesn't know whether there is availability so it shows you all B&B's and then you use their "contact the B&B interface" to send a message and wait a day to get a response via my email. (if I get a YES response then I check the ratings in TA etc.)

PS: I've been in Naples for almost 2 weeks and just LOVE it here. This is like Italy used to be 50+ years ago.

I spent two nights at a very charming Hotel called Hotel Pendini. I rarely find hotels with two bedrooms, but this one had it and it was perfect for me and my family for a brief two days in Florence before our return flight back to the States.

It's a little pricey, but it included a really nice breakfast and the location was within close walking distance to lots of shops, the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean.

We stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago: Palazzo Guadagni. It's on the Oltrarno, with nice large rooms and a loggia where you can sip a glass of prosecco and enjoy great views over the city. We were only there for an overnight before an early flight out of Florence but it was a nice place, and I'd recommend it.
