We stayed at the Residenza Vespucci for three nights, in a room with a small balcony overlooking the Arno. The room was comfortable and clean, with an espresso maker and small refrigerator. Breakfast is available in a nearby cafe for 5 €. Spring for the balcony--it's fun to watch the river traffic. It's a bit busy and noisy during the day, but quiet at night.
Francesco could not have been more helpful. When my husband left his glasses in a taxi, Francesco called and tracked them down, then hand delivered them after the driver dropped them off. He also wrote down the instructions in English for my Italian cell phone!
The location is very close to major attractions, but still feels a bit quieter than some other parts of town.
