“A great hotel”
Reviewed 26 July 2011

My family of five just stayed five nights at jk Florence. I typically stay at four seasons and ritz hotels so this is the basis of comparison. Jk is one of the best overall hotels I have stayed in. It is impeccably decorated and the service level is comparable to a four seasons. The location is great to all major Florence sites. Room sizes are good by European standards. Complimentary (yes free) mini bar is a real treat. Breakfast at a shared table may not be for everyone

Stayed here with my wife on our 10th anniversary trip to Italy. Unbeatable location (right across Santa Maria Novella), and convenient access to many of the tourism highlights in central Florence within 5-15 minutes walk.
This hotel makes you feel like you're invited to a local wealthy family's mansion - not huge but meticulously appointed. The lounge areas which doubles as dining rooms are quiet and comfortable, their books and DVD library (for guests) is awesome, the hallways were subtlely scented with aromatic candles, and our room was cozy and we loved the bed, linens & pillows.
Among many charms of this hotel, I must mention the beautiful & quiet roof top terrace. It was a very relaxing place to enjoy the afternoon breeze and a drink there. Just dial the concierge whenever you wish to enjoy the complimentary drinks and sweets and they will gladly bring the tea pots and short breads on a shiny silver tray, to the terrace, to the lounge, or to your room - 24 hrs.
If you stay here, I also recommend to try the Bistecca alla Fiorentina which the house chef prepares (available both at the lounge or at your room) - her cooking was just magnificent and far beyond expectations from my idea of hotel food.
Definitely willing to go back again sometime in the future, this hotels really gives you so much of what you can't expect from a multi-continent "luxury" hotel chain.

Very smartly-decorated small hotel in the piazza featuring Santa Maria Novella...Contemporary furniture in an old villa/townhouse. Pleasant contrast.

Very comfortable rooms with a nice view of the famous church. Not as busy as the Doumo or Santa Croce piazzas. Peaceful in the morning and evening.

Very helpful concierge.

casual continental breakfast buffett with a communal table where you can meet other guests.

Roof-top bar (quiet, not a scene)

Very convenient location for seeing the city. You can walk everywhere, no problem.

I spend 50 nights a year (globally) in hotels for business and pleasure, and this is one of the top 3 hotels I've ever stayed in. Great decor, large rooms, super AC (never a given in Europe), and fast, friendly service with a genuine aim to please set this property apart. Nice location for touring/sightseeing in Florence...everything in walking distance. I will stay at JK Place again.

Our first trip to Florence was made glorious by the great concierge service at JK Place: dining recommendations, museum tickets, tour guides, etc. Although the room had no view to speak of it was clean, quiet and well furnished. Breakfast, brunch or whatever you wish to call it was excellent. The hotel is in easy walking distance of most of Florence better known attractions, excellent dining and shopping. We would go back.

Gorgeous and stylish with warm and friendly staff, it was the perfect location for a weekend away. The room was beautifully appointed and huge with a lovely view of the church and rolling countryside behind it. Location was great for popping in and out between sightseeing and shopping. Staff made very good restaurant bookings for us, and helped organise a wonderful tour. We stayed at JK Place Capri last year and highly recommend both hotels.

I poured over all the hotel reviews and at one point I had three reservations at different hotels! JK place is where we chose to stay and i have to say it was the best decision we made. It is away from alot of the crowds and noise but yoiu can still walk everywhere.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special and pampered. Where else do you go that you sit with a glass of prosecco while your bags are whisked to your room and your paperwork is gathered.
The rooms are immaculate, ours was small but still fabulous and the bathrooms are great. Loved the rooftop deck, great for tea after a long day walking around and for a drink
before dinner. The breakfast and snacks were delicious. Lovely to have water and beverages available any time you like!
I can not say enough about the staff and how helpful they were. Overall just a wonderful hotel and a great part of our vacation. We hope to come back and also try the property in Capri.
Carmen special thanks to you for all of your help!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Comfort, sophistication, style and value right in the heart of Florence. J.K Place has carved out an exceptionally pleasant niche for itself, a niche that’s just seconds from the door of the stunning church of Santa Maria Novella. All the major sites are within easy walking distance. The rooms: Just twenty of them, snazzy, characterful, no two are alike, and all with signature soft furnishings in creams, granges and neutrals offset with contrasting piping in an effortlessly chic Anouska meets Ralph love-in. The glass covered courtyard and roof terrace beckon on warmer days whilst winter afternoons are best spent huddled by the fireplace in the J.K Lounge with a thick slice of cake and a steaming hot cioccolata con panna. Add very friendly, discreet service plus probably the city’s best Concierge and you are just asking for a good time! ... more   less
