how about this? Tourist House Ghiberti.

www.touristhouseghiberti.com

It's not a "hotel" but there have been rave reviews from other posters. I have not stayed here yet but am booked for two nights in May and looking forward to it.

Good luck, E

You asked about the Hotel Rivoli. In May, 2001, we stayed at the Best Western Hotel Rivoli, via Della Scala, which is about a 5-minute walk to the Santa Maria Novella Station.

It wasn't cheap...$200 per night with breakfast for a double room. The hotel and the room were mediocre, and I wouldn't recommend staying there. I'm sure there are better hotels in Florence.

Have you thought about Villa Antea? It's a boutique 5* with individually decorated rooms and about 12 minutes' walk N-NW from Duomo. We're staying in April over Easter and it looks esquisite.

<<www.villaantea.com>> Through venere.com, you may get this room within your budget.

Thanks for the replys.Tourist was booked.Rivoli open,but will cross that one off.SOOOO confusing though!!! I saw Porta Rossa and thought PERFECT!!! but there are two posts on here that say.."whatever you do dont stay there!!",although they were 2001..How about the Beacci Tourna... also the Hotel Benivieni..any other thoughts about Porta Rossa? Tried the B& Bs most require two nights..

Might try this link to view a bunch of B&B's. You can either book through the agency, which is great or look up the direct links on google and book dirctly with the B&B.
