Best accommodation for 4 friends going to Italy to see the 6 Nations in Feb

Any recommendations for accommodation when staying in Florence and Rome in February for the 6 Nations Rugby tournament? We're trying to be fiscally responsible (not pay extortionate prices) but are happy for it to be bed and breakfast, hotel, or apartments. Easy access to public transportation and city amenities (food, some tourist sites).

    My fave stay in Florence is The Westin Excelsior Florence - amazing location, amazing service, amazing Negroni at the lobby). The hotel itself breaths Florentine spirits. They also have roof top restaurant. If you stay there, ask for a room with the river view.

    For more budget version but still fantastic location I recommend Calzaiuoli Hotel (Via Calzaiuoli 6), and also easy-walking-to-everything Room Mate Isabella (Via de' Tornabuoni 13). Don't forget to step in for morning coffee to Roberto Cavalli's Caffe' Giacosa a Palazzo Strozzi (Via della Spada, 10/r). Enjoy!

    We stayed in the Hotel Pendini in Florence. It is located in the Piazza Republica. It is pretty central to everything and it is an easy walk to just about everything. Plus we really like their breakfasts.

    I found that apartments are almost always cheaper when traveling in Europe. It's nice because you have more room and a kitchen so it's easy to make a quick breakfast or snack and save on meals as well. I used homeaway.com and vrbo.com a lot and just read the reviews before booking. Those sites have really nice apartments in a range of price ranges. The apartment we stayed in while in Rome isn't available anymore, but we stayed near the Piazza Navona and if you can find something affordable there, it's a wonderfully central place to stay.

    We stayed in the country while in Florence , but look online and you may find a cute little flat in town that won't cost you a fortune. Florence is a fabulous town to walk in.

    In Rome, we stayed at Hotel Lancelot! Very comfortable and cozy! 4 blocks from the Coliseum which is a roads from a subway entrance. Depending on time of year, it's around $150
