You might want to check this website to get an idea of prices (you can choose different star levels and bed and breakfast places in the results page). http://www.italyhotel.com/ It's in TheTravelzine links.
You might also look at http://www.budgettravel.com/europe.htm
Once you get an idea of prices, then you can consider Ziner recommendations more easily.
