Fantastic quiet location just a short walk from the city centre. Our room was large and overlooked the courtyard. Breakfast was nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful.There were a few steps to our room which was not a problem for us at all.

J and J was a wonderful hotel in Florence. The location is great - it's a walk to many of the sights in Florence. The breakfast is in a beautiful room and courtyard. The service was wonderful and the room was very nice. There are only 23 rooms each one is different. Ours had a circular stairway to a small... More

The J&J is a charming and cosy hotel which was founded as a 16th century monastery and you can still imagine the scenery as a lot is decoratively preserved. The staff is not only friendly, but focussed on customers and not only wants you to have a unique and pleasant experience, they actually pratice what they preach.

Loved this small hotel in a converted 16th century convent. Walking distance to everything. Staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was great. Rooms were spacious and clean. The ambiance was great. Would definitely stay again next time in Florence. You definitely don't need a car to see most sites.

We loved our stay at the J and J. The staff was very helpful, the rooms were beautiful and huge! They have a lovely courtyard where we enjoyed breakfast and cocktails in the evening. Breakfast was included in our room but was very disappointing. This location was perfect. An easy walk to all attractions and lots of great restaurants.

Look, if you want to be somewhere where you can take nice photos to show that you have been in a nice place, it's the right place for you. The interior is really nice but the breakfast is not good, the room is small, it's expansive and you're not really getting anything for your money. However, it is quite central... More

20 years ago a friend in the travel industry recommended this hotel. My husband and I were completely charmed and returned this summer with our teenage daughters. We were not disappointed. The staff is warm, welcoming and helpful. The location is very convenient and our room- though different- was unique and put us fully into the ambience of Florence.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
