Rome and Florence Hotels

Greetings!

I am planning a trip for my parents to Italy this spring (beginning of April). As first time visitors to Italy, can anyone recommend a good hotel that is centrally located and moderately priced (perferably, under $100)? They will be in Rome and likely Florence as well. Recommendations for either would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I used http://www.venere.com when last booking a trip to Italy.

I'm not sure that you won't find better deals elsewhere, but I thought that the choice & information provided there (especially the reviews) were unmatched anywhere else.

I have generally been successful with the information on the fodors site--find the hotel rants and raves page for the cities you want and read the feedback.

I booked a 4**** hotel in Rome with Priceline for $ 100 plus fee + tax.
Next time I would start with $ 80/center, then go to $ 90 and add Vatican area.

Priceline sounds great. Normally, decent hotels in Rome are $200 or so. Check it out for Florence too. In Florence, the hilltown suburb Fiesole is nice and you might find something cheaper there; easy access to the city center by bus $1 one way.

I like to stay at the Domus Marae near the Vatican. It's very close to a Metro stop and is in a quiet neighborhood.
