Friendly, quiet, great value
Il Palagetto is half a block up a quiet street on the south side of the Arno, about a half hour's walk from the train station and the main tourist attractions. It is also two blocks from buses to the center of town. This is not a fancy place, but it is friendly, very serviceable, and VERY good value. Roger, the host, has good English and is very helpful. The rooms are large and clean, and tour books and umbrellas can be borrowed. The breakfast is substantial: ham, salami, cheese, bread, pastries, cold cereal, fruit salad, tea, coffee, and juice, as well as an egg made to order. We found this was enough food to last until dinner if we had a small snack in the late afternoon. And a snack was available at the guest house, in the form of hand fruit, cookies, and tea. Roger provides a list of nearby restaurants for dinner. We particularly enjoyed Tratoria Sabatino, an unpretentious family-run place that feels like home. Potential negatives: be aware that you will be sharing a bathroom with three other rooms. Also note that any arrival after 6 pm is considered "late". If your plane arrives after 6 you must arrange for Roger to pick you up,at the airport. This costs $25 euros, but it is money well spent if you are jet lagged and don't want to figure out the tram system. All in all, this is an excellent choice for value-oriented travelers.

This is an beautiful property on a quiet residential road. The walk into the city isnt too much but its better if you use the bus. The staff are kind and patient and the food is excellent. The decor is thoughtful and relaxed. The place is extremely clean. If other guests take too long in bathroom it can be problem is you really need to go or you have a child who cannot wait. We were not aware of another bathroom we could use in case the one next to us was occupied. When other guests and their children stay in the communal area after 8/9pm or slam doors, they can be noisy. This was problematic for us because our trip was so short and we needed to sleep early to recover from jetlag as well as arrive to tours early in the morning. The property and the staff are excellent, but the only thing I'd warn is that we were freezing at night and the blankets were not enough and we could not control the temperature of the room. We weren't aware of any extra blankets. It was late at night so we did not want to wake the staff to give us blankets. We slept in our clothes, the terrycloth robe and under the bathtowels to add more warmth but it was still cold. That is my only complaint about the accomodation . Again, the food was excellent, staff was personable and the cleanliness and condition of property was astonishing.
