We really loved the Hotel Europa on our trip to Florence a few weeks back.
The location of the hotel is great, walking distance to every major sight on Florence and walking distance to the station. It's also close to a number of decent restaurants close by, (Za Za was by far our favorite).
The rooms were very clean, the bed was a little on the firm side (which most of ours were on our trip to Italy!) but we had no problem sleeping. Our room (47 I think) had a balcony that had a nice view of the Duomo. This was the first room on our trip to Italy that had AC so it was a welcome sight!
The hotel provides free wifi (just ask at the front desk), the hotel also has an elevator. Believe me after our hotels in Siena and Vernazza this also was a VERY welcome sight!
The hotel also does a nice continental breakfast in the morning (coffee/cappuccinos/croissants etc).
Robert behind the front desk was a great source of info. He took us through a (free) map of the city and showed us the locations of all the major sights in the city.
As I said above we couldn't have wished for a better experience in Florence. We would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Florence!
