About Us

J.K. Place Firenze is located a stone's throw from the Renaissance church of Santa Maria Novella in central Florence. The hotel has 20 luxurious rooms with everything for those who want a vacation with high quality and stylish furnishing. Lounges furnished with cosy couches, art and books convey the feeling of being on a visit to someone's beautiful home.

The Boutique Hotel is hidden behind a charming door and has a rooftop terrace with a view over Florence's rooftops. Some of the Suites at JK Place have walk-in closets, sitting rooms and private balconies. 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!

JK Place Firenze is more like a sophisticated home than a hotel, with working fireplaces, antiques and collectables reminiscent of the items a family would accumulate over several generations. The Chinese prints, brass-framed photographs, neo-classical furniture and lamps from the 50s and 60s fit perfectly with the sleek masculine soft-coloured décor.

J.K. Lounge Bar and Restaurant is a kind of multifaceted and charming club which attracts a cross range of society, from businessmen to ineffable beauties, glamorous international stars and elegantly dressed local ladies. One can stop by for a quick luncheon, take tea in the afternoon, or enjoy the decadent pleasures of an aperitif followed by a delightful dinner. Quite often many choose to reserve the Lounge for a private dinner evening, or a working lunch, as well as for celebrating a special birthday in the magical “townhouse” atmosphere.....

Best of the Best

A former residence set along the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, J.K. Place Firenze is a precious gem in a city of treasures. You’ll feel an intimate, homey ambience throughout this 20-room boutique hotel. Share adventures over breakfast at the communal table in the glass-roofed courtyard or soak in the vistas of the city’s skyline from the teak-floored rooftop terrace. From spring to autumn enjoy delicacies of J.K.’s kitchen on the J.K. Terrace in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, or retreat in the comfortable and refined J.K. Lounge Bar & Restaurant for organic snacks and cocktails. The knowledgeable Concierge team is at your beck and call.

Hotel is excellent

Room was the best.Location was perfect. Amenities were good. Loved the service and the afternoon snacks and breakfast. Only problem was the food at the restaurant. Three out of four meals were great and the fourth on two occasions was terrible. Perhaps this will review will make them take a look at their restaurant.

We had a wonderful experience at JK Place. The property is beyond lovely but what really made our stay a wonderful experience was the warm, generous and well trained staff. We dined at the great restaurants they recommended and thoroughly enjoyed them. We consider ourselves pretty seasoned travelers but we have never before received the level of hospitality provided to us by the staff at JK Place.

This hotel is wonderful. Great rooms. Great service. Perfect location. However, the food both at breakfast and outside at the restaurant needs improvement. Just not up to the same standard as the hotel. JR

Your Own Home in Firenze

By: Julia


Reviewed on: 05 Jan 2018

Having stayed at the J.K. Place in Capri and loved it utterly, we were understandably anxious to stay at the property in Firenze. We were not disappointed! Having the same feel as a private home, the J.K. Place Firenze is elegant, sophisticated, luxurious....gorgeous! The staff is absolutely FIRST RATE and could not do enough for us! The hotel is located centrally to almost absolutely anything you might want to do in Florence, and by centrally located, I mean walking distance. You could not have a better location. The intimate atmosphere is completely delicious--gorgeous finishes, furnishings, food.....it is like visiting a very wealthy relative who left you their mansion and staff for the weekend! Our room was perfection: a living room and separate bedroom, two bathrooms, one with a bath/shower combination and one with a shower. Stunning linens, beautiful decorations, a peaceful haven in which to relax after a long day of sightseeing.

I loved it. The perfect place to stay, a wonderful Piazza without feeling overwhelming. It was absolutely beautiful inside and the staff was accommodating, warm and knowledgeable. Perfect location. 10 minutes to wherever I needed to be, but not teaming with tourists and loud. I would absolutely stay here again.

J.K. is a class act. Impeccable service, no need to sign! Andrea Pieri, the food and wine specialist is a jewel. Wonderful sidewalk terrace for breakfast or lunch, facing Sea Maria Novella. There are three master rooms facing the square, we were on 12 (third floor), fabulous. I am not sure how pleasant is to stay in the other rooms facing the courtyard.
