My wife and I are budget travellers and stayed at the Orchidea for two nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large and comfortable. The owner is very nice and can assist your with booking tours / finding restaurants etc. The greatest aspect of this place is location, it is a five minute walk from the Duomo, which is a must see...and you have to walk to the top (8 Euros) you will not regret it as it provides a panoramic view of Florence / Tuscany. From this location you also are very close to all of the major museums and literally a five minute walk from the Statue of David (replica).
There are plenty of great restaurants around and you really can't go wrong. A word of caution for those who are travelling on a budget, try to avoid the cafes in the square surrounding the Duomo, you will be paying a premium for the atmosphere (as with anywhere). As well, if you are looking for real Italian leather goods, purchase them here in Florence, there are many stores within walking distance of the Orchidea. My wife and I did Rome and the Amalfi Coast as well and we did not find the same prices and selection as Florence had to offer, very nice stuff.
