Reviewed 1 June 2014

Stayed many times at the JK Place in a variety of rooms and it still wins out as my favourite place to stay in the world. The place is beautiful, the location convenient (just out of the main bustle but still as very easy walk to every where you'll want to visit, service is professional but discrete and relaxed and it even smells great; like warm honey on white flowers.

Room Tip: They're all good to be honest

The JK Place Small Luxury Hotel is simply outstanding. The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated with art and a library that says, "We are the essence of Florence." The staff is the most attentive and personal that we've ever experienced anywhere. The street cafe, on the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, is a very beautiful and relaxing place to enjoy an excellent glass of wine or a meal while gazing at the 600 year old church or watching the people walk through the piazza. Centrally located, JK Place is an easy walk to the Duomo, the Accademia, the Ufizzi and many of the other major sites in Florence. Without any hesitation whatsoever, we would recommend JK Place Firenze to any couple seeking a romantic getaway to one of the world's most beautiful cities.

Thanks again to Claudio Meli and his staff for a fabulous stay! You have certainly earned the award of THE American Express Partner of the Year for 2013. Congratulations!!

We have a fabulous three night stay at the JK hotel. The hotel is lovely and well located for everything in Florence. The staff cannot do enough to make your stay as perfect as possible. We would certainly recommend this great hotel.

Beautifully appointed boutique hotel – We saw it on day one and decided to have dinner there on the last night.
We sat outside and enjoyed the general vista and the excellent service.
Food was very good, both of us enjoying the fillet steak for mains. My only complaint was that the menu was a little limited with just a few options – Almost like a slightly extended bar menu.
The bill was, as expected a little pricy but it is a very smart place.
We enjoyed it.

The hotel staff is very nice, but the rooms are very small for what you pay. The breakfast is tasty, the hotel furniture is simply beautiful, if you don' t like small spaces you will not like it, otherwise it is a very nice well situated hotel. In addition,ask the concierge to recommend the restaurant in the city.

Very cute hotel, centrally located close to all main attractions. You hardly see any other guests during your stay as the atmosphere is very intimate. The room we were assigned to smelled a bit of gas and we were immediately upgraded and moved to another room. Definitely a place to stay in Florence!

We initially chose JK Place because of its convenient location near the Santa Maria Novella train station and because it’s also within walking distance to many cultural attractions, restaurants and shops in the heart of medieval Florence. We ended up really liking this hotel’s seamless mix of historic and modern ambiance. The hotel’s sitting room, dining area, library and other common areas are very stylish, comfortable and inviting places to relax in with a nice glass of wine after exploring the city. The service was impeccable too. The concierges provided excellent recommendations and gladly arranged advanced tickets to several museums for us. The concierge staff made dinner reservations for us at the nearby Enoteca Il Santo Bevitore, just over the Ponte alla Carraia bridge on the south side of the Arno River. It was an amazing dining experience and the best meal we had in Florence (even better than the tasting menu we had at Michelin 1-Star Ristorante Ora d'Aria). JK Place’s sidewalk café was also wonderful, offering a great view of the Piazza Santa Maria Novella and the Basilica. The JK Café also offered very good cuisine and a great wine selection.

We thought the style, comfort, size and privacy of the secluded two-story Penthouse Suite were ideal. We also loved the large, luxurious, bathroom that was very well-appointed with a two-person soaking tub, a separate two-person shower and large windows overlooking Florence. The delicious breakfasts as well as the many amenities and little “extras” offered by the hotel were very much appreciated too. The suite’s outdoor terrace was a perfect spot for breakfast every morning and the view of Cappelle Medicee, the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and the rooftops of Florence from the terrace and bathroom was absolutely magnificent. JK Place is a wonderful boutique hotel in every way.

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
