I will be going to Florence in May of 2014 with two friends and we need a place to stay! We have 10 days in Italia, most of which will be spent in Florence and we want something that's nice but still affordable. We don't wanna do a hostel. Do you think $100-$150 a night for three people total is doable? Suggestions please!
In case if you are planning to stay within the city you should check out:
However, if you are going to rent a car it is absolutely fine to stay a bit outside of the city. Hotels will be much nicer for the that price. Florence is rather small town and some hotels provide free bike for their guests. You can rent a it yourself. You could explore other parts of Tuscany by car on some days and go to the downtown by bike. It will be beautiful time of the year.
I like Silvani 123 (Via Ugo Moschi 8, Galluzzo - Certosa, 50125 Florence).

I have found this nice article. It has a selection of 5 hotels in the center of Florence, with rooms around the budget you suggested!
I would not suggest an hostel, but apartment could also be a good solution.
Have a good trip!
Hi, in Florence you can easily find a nice place Piazza Santo Spirito. there you can find good B&B with good quality-price balance. Furthermore Santo Spirito is nice place to stay, hang around and it also have nice markets (food and vintage)

Grand Hotel Cavour
the hotel has a rooftop terrace with views of Florence Cathedral. It showcases a grand entrance hall with free Wi-Fi, marble floors and statues, and elegant rooms with air conditioning.
The restaurant serves classic Italian cuisine and regional specialties, made using local ingredients. Cocktails are available at the bar, open until midnight.

That's a bit low for Florence (for 3 people). However, instead of looking for a hotel, consider renting an apartment instead. You'll likely get much more for your money, especially for multiple bedrooms.
Hi Mira! Florence is an amazing city and there are many things to do!
Enjoy Florence!! :)
I'm doing a three week tour through Italy at the end of June and have found that you can get a lot cheaper and nicer apartment accommodation through Airbnb than with hotels. I'll be in Florence for 6 days and found a lovely place right near the bus & train station for $75 a night so you should be able to find something well within your price range for the three of you. From there I intend to do daytrips by bus to Siena, Lucca and San Gimignano.
