I was staying in a rented apartment arranged by my school, together with a few other foreign students. It was located in a narrow street close to the Santa Maria Novella train station, and right next to a disco!! Imagine that!
The apartment had a kitchen a little terrace overlooking into the terrace of the next building. We cooked nearly every night, it's cheaper!

Hotel Villa Aurora: Hotel Villa Aurora
About $140.00 USD
It's a little on the expensive side but then all of Florence is. Situated in the mountains surrounding Florence, Fiesola is a lovely little town to wander around in, stop for a drink at one of the many sidewalk cafes, or eat in the fabulous Aurora restaurant overlooking the city of Florence. A few rooms have a view with a great little wrought iron balcony. Very romantic. Be sure to ask for non-smoking if you really want it.

Most hotels are very expensive, and during holiday weekends or peak travel season (May-September), it can be quite hard to get a room. Instead, at the train station, you will find many people who will rent you a room at their house for around $25/night. These are the best deals in town.

Locanda Orchidea, a pensionne...
Locanda Orchidea, a pensionne (like a boarding house) in the Old City was where I stayed. There are some pluses and some drawbacks. It is slightly more expensive than a hostel ($33 USD for a single), but you have your own comfortable, cozy and clean room. It is convenient for sightseeing being in the Old City very close to the Duomo in a palazzo that Dante's wife was born in. The owner's are very helpful. However, ask for an inner room or bring earplugs because the street noise is pervasive and almost non-stop.

Wouldn't you take the chance...
Wouldn't you take the chance to stay in an original XIV century (nearly 1300!) historical palace located just in the central square of San Gimignano...?If you would, then the right thing to do is to rent an apartment at the privately-owned Palazzo Tortoli (Tortoli Palace).
The Palace's front, in straight Tuscan Gothic style, and its marvellous mullioned windows make this palace really wonderful. As you get out of the main door and find yourself right in Piazza della Cisterna, for a while you can pretend you're not a tourist but a real ancient local citizen... :-)
Actually, the Palace consists in two apartments, furnished with antique pieces all well-preserved.The first apartment, for 2 persons, is located on the 2nd floor and has a big bedroom with direct view on the square, a kitchen-corner and a bathroom.The other one, for up to 4 persons, is on the 3rd floor and has a big wonderful dining-room with view on the Tuscanian countryside, two bedrooms whose one directly overlooking on the square, and a bathroom.

Few cities can rival Florence...
Few cities can rival Florence as the cultural capital of the world; it is the intellectual centre of literature, art, architecture, and learning; a magnificent monument to the Renaissance. Astride the Arno that runs through the heart of the city, is the world-famous Ponte Vecchio. Standing on the south bank nearby and overlooking The Uffizi, Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo and the Florentine campaniles, is the Hotel Lungarno where your own ‘Room with a view’ surpasses all others in the city.
In the recently inaugurated ‘Ristorante Lungarno’ the enchantment continues as you dine on fresh seafood and local cuisine whilst gazing at the city’s reflected glories in the Arno’s waters. The hotel has been famous for many years for its great character and tremendous hospitality.
A palace in miniature awaits your pleasure.
10 km from the international airport in the centre of Florence

When we got to Florence it was late afternoon on a Saturday and being the spontaneous gals that we were we had no accomodations lined up! Luckily, we met a really nice Italian guy on the train who helped us find an amazing place to stay. (It really helped that he could speak Italian on the phone when we tried to make a reservation!)
We ended up in this fantastic campground (tent and matress provided) that overlooked the city of Florence. It was a 15 minute busride from downtown and a 5 minute walk from Michealangelo square. It was so cool!
Wake up in the morning to fantastic views of Florence! Also has a store and cafeteria on location.
Warning: toilets are a little scary.
The staff were all really nice and helpful. We found everyone at the campground to be extremely nice. We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone. It was a great place to meet fellow travelors!

We stayed at the Hotel San Marco. It is considered a one-star hotel. I still find the rating system to be a tad suspect, but I suppose the guidelines are fairly accurate. At any rate, the room was plain -- bed, nightstand, closet. No phone, but it did have a toilet and shower in the room. If you're on a budget, this was a great place to be, given that the staff was incredibly friendly and you couldn't beat the location. We were steps away from the Duomo and the museum that houses The David.
I think it was approximately $60 a night.

Fort Agip is a nice hotel around Florence, nice restaurant and sometimes live music in the hall.
I have paid less than a hundred dollars for a double room.
Good price and not far from downtown area, mainly if you are using a car.
