“Fabulous!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a converted home that is beautifully reappointed as a luxury hotel. The staff is extremely attentive, the location is superb, and the rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The common areas are very comfortable, accessible and "Homey"' including the TV/Movie viewing room. The breakfast that is included, was served in our room for no additional charge. This was one of the nicest places we have stayed in Italy. It rivals any Four Seasons.

The moment you arrive you are welcomed not just by a friendly and excellently trained staff, but you are also ushered into an oh so stylish home for your stay in Florence. We had the pleasure to be greeted personally by the Hotel's general manager, promptly handing us his card and reminding us that he is always at our disposal. JK Place is truly a special Place. There are always freshly baked snacks waiting for you in the dining room and a wonderful chilled carrot, orange and lemon concoction to refresh after a long day of sight seeing. But what is so phenomenal about JK Place is the intangible... the innate feeling that you are being taken care of... no... pampered at every point in your stay. All of this... plus a fantastic central location ( which the Four Seasons can not offer), it is the ONLY RIGHT choice for a perfect stay in Florence.....Grazie JK Place!!!

JK Place sets the standard for what a boutique hotel experience should be. The room was beautiful and extraordinarily comfortable. Every detail considered from the fresh fruit and complimentary mini bar each day to the towel warmers. The service impeccable. Gracious, appropriate and elegant. The staff knows you by name upon the first meeting and could not be more helpful or kind.

Room Tip: The Deluxe Doubles are beautiful and spacious.

I cannot rate JK Place in Florence highly enough. From the time of booking on line to the moment we left the hotel, the staff at JK Place looked after us and helped us at every turn. The decor and setting were utterly stunning. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the free stocked mini bar ( soft drinks) was a great touch. Breakfast in the main salon was excellent and a chance to chat to other guests about experiences of Florence. Special thanks to Lorenzo and Serena, who organised our excursions and evening restaurants all totally faultless. Need to try JK Rome and then JK Capri, as they too look wonderful.
The whole place far exceeded my expectation.
Thanks you all for a truly memorable trip.

As a independent traveller, I can say that JK Place does not fall into the category of an indifferent hotel. Bags were taken and deposited in my room, checked in in the library lined with books on art, Florence etc - no reception desk here and I was welcomed by Martin, Carlos and Arsti and the team with an Aperol Spritz on the terrace, overlooking, the often neglected by visitors, Santa Maria Novella church.
My room was a delight - large and airy, overlooking the internal atrium, with the bathroom on an upper level, decked out in marble and all the amenities a female traveller needs. When the windows are open you can hear the bells of the Dormo and other churches strike the hour - you know you are in Florence.
Breakfast is served "family" style around a laden buffet table. You can chat to other guests or remain quite - its up to you. The guy beside you may be a eruocrat, a model or celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary - its that type of place- attracts all sorts.
Its the little things that matter - complementary "non alcoholic" mini bar with wonderful chocolate and fruit bowl replenished daily, a gift of local spa toiletries, every floor lined with the most wonderful scented candles and Dr Vranjes diffusers. There is a lovely roof terrace- the only thing is the wall is in the wrong place and you can't see the Dormo - something to do with building regulations - but that doesn't detract from the ambiance of Florence, especially if there is a firework display. Recommended good local restaurants by the team all within tottering distance of the hotel for a nightcap on the terrace or in the chic lounge.
Florence is a wonderful city for a minibreak -the hotel is literally 3-4 mins walk from the train station to another world; 10 min walk to the Uffizi, and 5 mins to the Dormo and its crowds! Just make sure you take plenty of breaks for café fredo and gelato between all the wonderful art and history.
More expensive than other boutique hotels I have stayed in, say Paris, Venice and Barcelona - but Italy is like that - you get what you pay for. Would I go back - you bet. Ciao Bella!

Room Tip: Internal atrium rooms are quieter if you are a light sleeper.

This was our third visit to the lovely JK Place. Probably one of the best boutique hotels in Florence. Staff is inviting, warm, friendly and helpful. Rooms are a delight. Morning breakfast around the common dining table is sublime. Service is of the utmost importance here. Lunch on the outdoor, umbrella covered patio overlooking Santa Maria Novella Piazza is a joy. A short 5 minute walk from the SMN train station, JK Place is a quick stroll to the main pedestrian areas that comprise Florence. Ponte Vecchio with its jewellery stores is but a 10 minute walk. Grab a gelato along the way. Fair warning - if you want JK Place book well in advance. It is a small establishment, so booking 8-10 months in advance is the norm. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

My wife and I stayed for five nights May 2013. JK Place was one of the most memorable hotel experiences of our thirty years of travel together. We stayed in the two-floor suite. The room was very large, stylish and most important comfortable. Two full bathrooms. Great showers. Mini bar filled with nonalcoholic drinks of your choice at no extra charge. Fresh fruit daily. Great view of Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Restaurant at hotel very nice place for outdoor lunch.

The service at JK Place is PERFECTION!! We thank you all for the attention to the smallest details. Planning and executing all of our requests with polite and friendly precision. The help began before we arrived and continued each day of our stay.

We could find no part of our stay that was anything less that fantastic.

Thank you staff of JK Place.

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
