Hotel is excellent

By: Janrc

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

The JK Hotel in Florence was lovely and perfectly located, the staff incredibly friendly. The only issue for me was the linen sheets, which we could have had switched to cotton.....but whatevs.

Your Own Home in Firenze

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.

The hotel is perfectly located and first class is terms of service. It is also extremely nice and truly a boutique experience. We would definitely stay here or at one of their other properties in the future.

Perfect location, beautiful hotel and wonderful hospitality

By: Shirley

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.

Our stay at the J.K. Place in Florence was, hands down, the best hotel experience I have ever had in my life. The staff went well out of their way to make our family, including our three children, feel so welcome and comfortable throughout our stay. We loved our meals in the cozy dining areas and our family New Years Eve dinner was magical, thanks to their kind and attentive service.
