We stayed for 4 nights at le Stanze dei Medici in late April. We found the location to be excellent as we were able to walk nearly everywhere and there were lots of good places to eat and fabulous shopping - particularly the leather market for jackets and bags.
The people were friendly and very helpful and provided advice and brochures. Our only concerns were that the bed was a bit on the hard side although the rooms were reasonably generous and comfortable, and that breakfast was not served until 8.30am (unless special arrangements were made) which meant that we missed out on seeing a few things.
Otherwise we recommend Le Stanze dei Medici and certainly we cannot recommend Florence too highly. It is a fabulous city and don't miss the Duomo, the Baptistry, the Uffizzi, the Brancacci and the Fra Angelica frescoes at St Marks.
