I've stayed at Il Perseo twice, in 12/95 and 10/98. I love it! Rooms are basic and I've always had one without bath; in fact my bed was so narrow I fell out before I got used to it! But it's cheap, the breakfast is nice, the staff is very friendly and helpful and you can't beat the location: within a block of the Duomo and an easy walk from the train station. From there I could walk everywhere in the "Centro Storico". Also, although located on a busy street, there are several window layers so there's no trouble sleeping. I don't believe there's any AC, and they are not allowed to turn the heat on until November.
For me -- until I become wealthy (ha!) I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Florence.
About restaurants, two reasonable ones I've enjoyed are Bella China (yes, Chinese, but with a Tuscan flair) on Ginori and Ristorante dei Medici near the Medici Chapels in San Lorenzo.
My daughter is there now -- her 2d study semester in Florence. If you need any more info, let me know.
Ciao! Enjoy your trip.

We stayed at the Bellettini last year, largely because it was the specific pick of one of Fodor's editors, as well as the price and location. It was easy walking distance from the train station and to everywhere else in Florence. It was a very comfortable hotel, our room was huge, staff very friendly and helpful, and good breakfast included.
