“Lovely City Centre Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This is a lovely small boutique hotel that provides a personal, luxury, experience. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

The location is very convenient for the train station and dragging our cases the short distance wasn't a problem. Its a little walk to the Uffizi Gallery, but Florence is very compact, so don't be put off.

Breakfast was very good and we enjoyed sharing the large dining table with other guests. This did make it feel like we were guests in a very fancy private house, which only added to the experience. They served great omelettes cooked to order, and the fruit juice was freshly squeezed (always a good sign of a luxury hotel).

Our room was a good size and we were near the back of the hotel as suggested by other TripAdvisor reviewers. It was very quiet and had good natural light. The bed was very comfortable and the free mini bar (no alcohol) was a welcome feature (btw the chocolate was excellent!).

Whilst this is an expensive hotel, it offers very good value and we would return in a heartbeat.

What an wonderful hotel. Service like you can only imagine. Have just spent 2 out of 3 nights of my honeymoon here. I can highly recommend this beautiful hotel. Great location. Highlights include breakfast and free mini bar replenished whenever you go out. Very close to the train station, 5 minutes walk at most.

We upgraded to a Junior Suite as it had lots of nice natural light and a (sort of) view over Santa Maria Novella piazza. It is a duplex and we only used the downstairs area to store our luggage, giving us more space in the bedroom area upstairs.The first room we looked at, the Classic, was a little small and without much natural light, which we prefer. The staff here are wonderful and very helpful. The hotel provides many freebies - wifi, breakfast, DVD and book library, fruits, aperitifs and snacks. The staff booked tickets for the Uffizi for us and were very helpful in getting us out of a jam with the Ufffizi - when we arrived there was a 1.5hr queue even for those who had pre-booked. The hotel re-arranged another time for us (no queue) - quite a feat I understand as the Uffizi won't normally rebook.
We had room service dinner one night which was very tasty and traditional. Will stay again if in Florence - or any of their other locations.

Room Tip: Ask for a room for a view.

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.

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
