I've stayed at the Medici 5 or 6 times. I always return here mostly because of the great location and the wonderful rooftop terrace. You can have a bottle of wine (you can get one at the front desk along with glasses) and watch the sun set over the Tuscan hills. And, the Duomo is literally so close you can almost reach out and touch it.
Yes, the rooms are small and the amenities a bit sparse. But, I'm not bothered in the least by sharing a bathroom or the typical thin Italian hotel towels. Breakfast is also just a standard continental rolls and jam. But, I'm not in Florence to spend my day in the hotel. If you're lucky, you'll get a room with a view of the Duomo - pretty magical at night.
The hotel is an easy walk from the train station. Once you've been there you'll figure out the sort of back way to go to the Piazza della Repubblica to avoid walking the main drag with your luggage.
