We had a lovely stay in Florence (2 weeks) at the Hotel Unicorno. It was centrally located, near the train station, within walking distance of almost everything in the city. We used local bus transportation (the stop was just steps from our door) for some of the longer excursions (Fiesole in the hills was a beautiful variation). The staff was ever-so friendly, helped with recommendations for restaurants and GELATO! I would recommend it for those on an unpretentious trip and those on a budget. We were hardly in the room at all. At night, because our room was near the back, on the 3rd floor, it was quiet. Breakfast each morning was sufficient: scrambled eggs, "hotdogs/meat", toast, cereals, ham/cheese, breads, jams, COFFEE MACHINE with many choices, yogurts, fresh fruit as well as canned fruit to add to cereal or yogurt. The room had a nice shower (no bath), with fresh lines each day if asked for; we went 2 days on the same towels...Yes, we would recommend this hotel for the budget-minded folks.
