We found this hotel to be close enough to all the sites that were on our list of things to do. The rooms are clean but very bare. The bathroom was clean, but the shower had its challenges. Breakfast was enough, but would have liked to see some fresh vegetables, fresh buns and perhaps some fresh cut up fruit. The... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in early May 2015. I only have positive comments to make on this hotel. The hotel is very characterful, quirky and unique, filled with antique furniture. It is very atmospheric and has a great deal of charm. It was a pleasure to be in such surroundings. The lounge/ breakfast room/ bar is served in... More

Most beautiful hotel in Florence. Very kind knowledgeable staff. Lovely breakfasts immaculate rooms so authentic (15th century ex monastery) and gorgeous. Frescoes on the ceiling comfortable furnishings large expansive suite large bathroom with great shower and deep large soaking tubs. Close enough to everything yet away from the tourist crowds. You wake each morning to the smell of cooking pastries.... More

The hotel itself is very well located (close to the famous Cibreo and Il Pizzauolo) and about a 10 min walk from any of the major sites. The reception area and dining area are very charming/old world Italian style - it is definitely nice to step into this type of hotel as opposed to a boring modern chain hotel. We... More

Dear Madam, Thank you very much for having stayed in our hotel. We are very sorry that you were disturbed by the noise coming from the other room. Concerning the iron and iron board, we used to have one, but we have suspended this service due to improper use that created damages to our antique furnitures. We have a laundry... More

This hotel is a four star hotel, and it shows! The staff were very attentive, the room was kitted out really well, and we enjoyed our short city break here immensely. I would love to come back again. The breakfast was of the continental style, they did have bacon and eggs, but it would be best to try this at... More

This hotel is well located allowing for an easy walk to all the attractions of Florence. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are all different and our room had two floors and was very spacious. The bathroom was good and the water hot. The bed was comfortable. However the rooms could do with refurbishment as they are a... More

The hotel is nicely located close to the Duomo and a 15 to 20 min walk from the trainstation. It is in a calm street and I've read that some people say it is in a bad neighbourhood but we didn't have any problems at all. The people at the reception were very friendly and helpfull. When we got our... More

This hotel is well positioned for most of the tourist places you want to visit in Florence, but it is very, very, tired. Although the staff were friendly, welcoming and tried to be helpful, they were unable to resolve the problem of hot water in our sink, BUT really tepid water in our shower/bath - and, in February, a hot...

I spent four nights at the J and J. Not sure where the 4 stars come from - I would rate it a three star. Rooms are funky and well thought out, and furniture and fittings are stylish and fun. This is a genuine 'boutique' hotel, and has many charms, but there are some downsides worth bearing in mind. Because... More
