“More than a hotel, an experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this wonderful boutique hotel. It is unlike any other in that it creates the feeling of living in a grand, elegant Italian residence with a wonderful and discreet staff. Check in is done not at an impersonal counter but at a lovely little library with books on Italy and Florence that you can take up to your room. The room was lovely, from the decor to the bedsheets to the well-appointed bathroom. Nice little touches, like a multi-outlet charger at the beside table for all types and manner of gadgets. Minibar is completely free--a nice touch. Fresh fruit replaced every day. Breakfast at your option in the communal dining room or in bed! Afternoon cocktails, snacks and canapes are also served. The hotel is walking distance to almost everywhere you would like to go in the city. I will definitely return to the JK Place on my next trip to Florence!

J K Place is a very charming hotel, very beautiful rooms. The service is extremely charming and nice, we had a wonderful week there. I can strongly recommend the place.

Once you enter the hotel, you seem to be in a different world; candle lights with a beautiful aroma everywhere, and always someone to fulfill your wishes.

We have just returned from a weekend stay at JK Place in Florence and it could not have been a more magical experience. From the second we arrived and were greeted with a warm welcome by reception and concierge to the minute we sadly had to leave we could not have been made to feel more at home. The decor is beautiful, modern and effortlessly stylish but without trying too hard and still retaining an inviting and warm feel. The location is fantastic, within short walking distance of the Arno and all of main attractions and minutes away from the main shopping streets. The room was extremely comfortable and we both had the best nights' sleep we've had in a long time. However what sets this place apart from anywhere we have stayed before is the amazing level of service which is personal and attentive but without being remotely intrusive. You are made to feel as if this is your home and nothing is too much trouble, for example, we commented on arrival that we liked the scent of the candles in the hallway and that same evening when we got back to our room, two candles had been left for us. Before we arrived I asked for restaurant recommendations and was provided with a list of about 15 different suggestions broken down into style, ambience and with a helpful description of each. It is going this extra mile which makes JK Place so special and which means we would come back here every time we return to Florence. A huge thank you to everyone at JK Place for making our trip so special.

Room Tip: We were fortunate enough to stay in the Penthouse room which had the most spectacular views. You can...

Very magical stay we always had at JK Place. It is hard to describe as if you separate everything i.e. rooms, decor, services, everything is still 5-stars and may not be very special. But when mixing it together at JK Place, the chemistry works and it is a very unique experience. The long table at the breakfast room, the library reception, the all-over artwork gallery concept, we love it. The hotel staff are exceptionally service-oriented and make you felt so pampered. Of course, this time upgraded to a suite made it super special as well. Thank you very much and we sure will be back.

We spent 4 nights here in March and I am unable to fault this lovely boutique hotel.
The Service was outstanding, everyone is so helpful and kind from the Reception/concierge staff to the guys who served breakfast and afternoon/evening coffees.
The rooms are lovely and seating areas downstairs are from the pages of a style magazine, relaxing there with a coffee after a hard days sightseeing was just was was needed.
We stayed in room 23 on the top floor overlooking the inner courtyard and over the roof tops.
Free wifi and complementary coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks and cake all day as well as free newspapers and a mini bar stocked with soft drinks are things that all expensive hotels should provide, but rarely do.

Wonderful place we highly recommend it and will stay there again the next time we are in Florence. Loved the rooftop terrace and the inviting downstairs sitting room. Excellent location within easy walking distance of all the great museums etc.

Room Tip: Never used the swiming pool or the fitness center so we have no commnet.

- Gorgeous design features, helpful staff, nicely appointed rooms, great location right off the SMN piazza, cosy boutique size = makes this the perfect hotel if you are traveling to beautiful Firenze.

- Side note: The Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is just around the corner - be sure to drop in to experience this centuries old perfume/soaps/lotions maker. Yes, you can pick up their items in branches around the world, but the original location is literally across the hotel

- Eating notes: il Santo Bevitore in the Oltrano is our usual choice for dinners in Firenze ~ well executed dishes using top quality Tuscan ingredients. Otherwise, for something different, check out the salt theatre (headsup that there's a small fee charged for one time membership) that Cibreo puts on ~ you get a show and a delicious meal with Chef Picchi screaming dish names out, all in one bill.. it doesn't get more fun than this!

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
