Looking for Good Hotels in Italy

We are going to Milan, Venice, Florence and Rome at the end of June and are looking for good hotels: clean, safe, central, has private bathroom. Prefer non-smoking. Can anybody give us recommendations?

These are the web sites I know about:
www.italyguide.com/
www.hotelguide.ch
www.ve.flashnet.it
www.hotelguide.ch/
www.venicehotel.com/

Perhaps do some surfing and narrow down some choices, or if you could be more specific about how much you want to spend or what amenities
you do or do not need (elevators, a/c, etc) perhaps it will be easier to advise you. Don't wait too long because unfortunately June is short notice for the popular hotels.

For Venice, the Hotel Giorgione was great. From the train station you take the No.1 vaporetto to the Ca D'Oro stop (which is about the 5th stop). The service is wonderful, the hotel is in a great area (everything is pretty much central in Venice), and is beautiful inside. I believe they also have a pretty courtyard that they open in spring, and breakfast is included. We paid approximately US$140/night.

In Rome, the Arenula was nice. The rooms are spotless and pleasant. They don't have an elevator, breakfast is included. We paid about US$112/night there. It's also a good location--walk to colloseum, piazza navona, etc.

I have stayed at 2 hotels in Rome.
Hotel Elite (near the Trevi fountain)
Small, quaint rooms with private bath and air conditioning. Great people.
And Hotel Campo dei Fiori. Same qualities as the Hotel Elite--but no air conditioning. But the big bonus--a roof-top terrace open to all guests. The Campo dei fiori is active all the time (except for siesta) and the terrace offers a wonderful view of St. Peters. There is no elevator, and it's six flights up. Rates are around Phone: 688-6865 or 687-4886, or fax: 687-6003." ['98/'99 rates for double run 155,000 to 220,000.]

We stayed in the Hotel Morgana in Rome last week, and enjoyed the accommodations. The windows were double-paned, so the room was quiet at night. The $275,000 rate (about $153 U.S.) included breakfast, and the staff was attentive, if not warm. Private bath in ours, but don't stay there if you can't climb stairs -- the elevator is smaller than as phone booth!

The hotel is near the Termini, which is a plus and a minus -- convenient to transportation, but a somewhat rough crowd in the late evening.... Plenty of good restaurants nearby, though, and we never felt threatened.
