JK Place is absolutely wonderful. It was like having our own home in the middle of Florence. The decor is excellent. It is clean, neat, and has the great sophisticated feeling. The breakfast each morning is a wonderful selection. It has meats, cheeses, pastries, juices and they will make any thing you would like that is hot. We ordered eggs each morning and heard others ordering french toast and omelets. We had lunch at JK one day and the food was good as well. Now on to the best part... The staff. When we say these people are amazing. They are! We came to Italy for our honeymoon and the Andrea Bocelli concert. I started emailing the staff 3-4 months prior to our arrival to get suggestions for excursions while in Florence and transportation to the concert. They always returned my emails prompt and with even more information than I asked for. They arranged for a tour of Tuscany with a driver one day and then car service to the concert the next day.
Carmen, Serena, and all the staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We had a wonderful welcome drink and were upgraded to a junior suite. It was a great view opening out on the piazza. We had a fruit basket in our room and then surprises each day after that. Prosecco one day and then the next a small farewell gift of the oil that makes the hotel smell so nice.
Given the excellent service, expansive breakfast and gifts, the room rate is a real value.
We always thought the service at other hotels like the Ritz is fabulous but this 20 room hotel's great service allows a more personal touch. We will be back and visit our "JK Florence Family" again.
Again, you will NOT go wrong by staying at this hotel. The hotel is lovely and a great location but the people at JK make it a truly wonderful experience.
