We went in March. The location was central to the major attractions and restaurants and the hotel was a warm and welcoming respite. The staff exceed our expectations. Simply the best! They helped us with arrangements prior to our arrival (unlike staff at the other 4 star in Rome) and went out of their way to make our stay here...

I booked this for three nights via BA. I was generally favourably impressed. There aren't many rooms. All of them (I think) look out over one of several small courtyards, to which the ground floor rooms have direct access. The rooms are charming, spacious, with high ceilings, and interesting modern decor that doesn't clash with the old building (former monastery)....

This hotel has many positives and just a couple of minor negatives… The positives are: • The super friendly, professional, helpful, and polite front desk. • The gorgeous hotel room we had. This hotel is an old monastery so, we weren’t sure what to expect. The room was spacious, beautiful, and comfortable. • The bathroom was spacious and had all...

As our taxi pulled up to the J&J I was impressed with the location and the welcoming lobby, then reality set in. There is no elevator. I was fine climbing the two flights to our "superior double room," but after proceeding along an outside gallery I was shocked to see that we faced ANOTHER stairway of TWENTY narrow stairs to...

We stayed in the J&J Historic House Hotel for two nights, but we enjoyed the casual atmosphere. The hotel is on the east side of the city center, and was a quick walk to everything we wanted to see in Florence. They had very nice evening snacks for guest along with a nice bar. It rained while we were there...

Hands down the best boutique hotel experience I have ever had. You do pay for it but it is worth every penny. The staff is amazing and execution of everything from decor, quality of room/food/espresso is second to none. I would choose to stay here over the Four Seasons, Florence any day.

If you want a charming place to stay that has a convenient location, stay here! The hotel has so much character and history but it is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood that is still close to all of the main attractions in Florence.  The lobby, eating area, sunroom, and patio are nicely decorating in what I would consider a...

We chose this hotel from Trip Advisor rather late after previous arrangements for staying with our extended family fell through. Looking at the photographs we went for a deluxe room, expecting at our age to maybe need to sit and rest on occasion. We were disappointed therefore to find only a single desk chair in the room (No 6). That...

We spent 3 nights in March 2012 and we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of this boutique hotel. It has a superb location just five minute walk from the main Cathedral, shopping area and restaurants. Staff is extremely polite and helpful, rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious. Breakfast was lovely although not a lot of choice. Free internet was a welcome...

Rooms are clean and QUIET... We met tourists staying right downtown, and they couldn't get a good nights sleep, where we had no problem. We walked 10-15 minutes to the major attractions like the Uffizi and the Duomo. Service is average overall, except for Monica (at the front desk) who is a superstar.
