We stayed at the Palazzo for 10 days in October. The rooms are massive, clean, with comfortable large bedrooms and best of all, a fully equipped kitchen (enough cutlery, pots and pans, dishes, North American coffee maker, kettle, fridge, 4 burner stove and oven). We stayed in rooms 2A and 2B which faced the garden (beware of mosquitoes at night though). Both were fantastic, but 2B was bigger and had a better arranged kitchen (more counter space to prep food and a counter top to eat at compared to a small table). However, both were exceptional, just 2B was better. Both were not noisy at all. An iron and ironing board is also in the room. WiFi is available, but not reliable.
You are close to everything here; 30 seconds to the Academia, 10 minutes to the Duomo and the market, 15 to Uffizi, and an easy 20 minute walk to piazelle Michaelangelo. It is also a 15 minute easy walk to the train station from the palazzo. We cabbed to the airport for 30 euros in 20 minutes - perfect. A grocery store with everything you need is 2 minutes away; market is 15 minutes for a larger variety of meats and fruits.
The owner, Francessca, is an amazing, and thoughtful host. She is willing to help out with your stay in any way.
We would return in a heartbeat.
