if you have been there, or just know somewhere which seems suitable please share
I use this site for hotels here in Italy: http://www.venere.com/hotels/italy/ . Venice and Florence are both pretty compact and the historic areas are easily walkable.
In Venice, I stay close to Piazza San Marco. Last night, I was at the Selvadego for the start of Carnevale http://www.venere.com/hotels/venice/hotel-selvadego/ It’s about a minute’s walk from Piazza San Marco. A couple of other places I like are the All’Angelo http://www.venere.com/hotels/venice/hotel-all-angelo/ or the San Moisè. The less expensive places tend to be on the outer islands or near the train stations. There’s a trip planner for the vaporetto here: http://www.actv.it/en
In Florence, I like the Hotel Duomo which is literally right next to the Duomo http://www.venere.com/hotels/florence/hotel-duomo/ and very short walking distance to Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio and other attractions. The train station is less than ten minutes walk.
Rome is somewhat larger. The hotels I particularly like there are the Cesàri which is close to the Pantheon http://www.venere.com/hotels/rome/hotel-cesari/ and the Romano which is right across from the Forum: http://www.venere.com/hotels/rome/hotel-romano/ and the Accademia which is literally around the corner from Trevi Fountain.
There are many other good choices in each of the three cities.
