“Great Stay at the Hotel J&J”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

From pre-booking our muesum ticket prior to arriving in Florence (highly recommend) to the end of our stay nothing was ever to much for the staff at Hotel J and J. We booked a junior suite for our two night stay and the room was huge and was priced very resonably. All the major places were in an easy walking distance without being to much in the middle of things. If your looking for a hotel you should definitely consider the Hotel J & J as an option.

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

I was at the end of my Italy trip (3 months) and what a wonderful way to end it. Because I had already had my share of less-than-adequate accommodations, my breath was taken away when I walked into my room -- Room No. 1. A quaint balcony with a winding stairway inside my room, a large comfortable bed, cozy seating either upstairs in the balcony overlooking the bedroom or downstairs, a lovely ample bathroom (with a shower curtain -- I noticed another reviewer didn't have a shower curtain), television with too many channels from which to choose.

Just outside my room, was a courtyard with several tables, and then easy access to a very comfortable sitting area and dining area of the hotel.

The staff were generous with their help and good attitude. I had a lot of luggage and they were quick to assist.

The hotel is located on a quiet side street, but is close to the popular sites. I took time to discover the area close by and found two street markets -- one with food and clothing, the other with antiques and knick-knacks -- quite close by. Also, a theater with almost nightly performances, is very close -- Teatro Verdi Firenze.

The included breakfast was ample, including freshly made espresso drinks.

The only drawback was the spotty WiFi connection. But, all I had to do was sit in one of the comfortable chairs or sofa in the sitting area to get better access.

Stayed here for 2 nights and wow what a hotel one of the best we have ever had the pleasure of staying in!

We where lucky enough to have a lovely room/Italian home on the courtyard. When we walked in the room was romantically lit, lovely old wood and beautiful curtains tied back throughout and an amazing archway to the bathroom. Bathroom had a lovely big back with huge showerhead over it perfect wake up call before the buffet breakfast!

Superb hotel not too far from everything in Florence but tucked away from all the hussle and Bustle!

Loved every second, if you are going to Florence dont think twice just stay here and ask for room 2! (even the woman behind the counter said it was a nice room)

We recently stayed at the J and J Hotel and have to say there was very little to fault with this hotel.
Although the hotel is hidden down a side street, it is easily within strolling distance of all the major sights and restaurants in Florence.
Our room was spacious with an enormous and luxurious bathroom and with patio doors leading out onto a little terrace that given better weather would have been fantastic!
Breakfast was simple but more than adequate, and we found the staff always extremely friendly and more than willing to help with booking restaurants etc.

Nevermind that there is no elevator (its an old house, so its only logical) but, BUT, rooms are huge, but there is no complimentary water, TV set sucks, bathroom is also huge but there is no shower curtains so its a bit cold to take a shower. Beds are great and breakfast goes beyond of what you expect from a buffet in Europe. Its a bit pricey for what it is. Ita romantic, rustic, and a couple of blocks from Santa María del Fiore. They charge 30€ a day for parking so, include that in your expenses if you are travelling in car. Thats it, cosy, nice, romantic, but if you start being picky, could be a bit better

Really couldn't fault our stay here. It was like staying in one of the historic sights we came to Florence to see- even had original frescoes on the walls! Our room was huge and the whole hotel was beautifully furnished and decorated. All the staff were delightful- nothing but friendly and helpful. Location was perfect- less than a 10 minute walk to the Duomo, 15 minutes to the Ufizzi. Loads of restaurants right on the doorstep which had more of a local vibe as we were just far enough away from the main tourist district. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Florence.

The room was spacious, bathroom modern and both were spotlessly clean. The whole hotel was tastefully furnished. The staff were friendly,and very helpful. The breakfast was excellant with many choices. The location was just right. Not right in the centre but in with the local community and only 10 minutes walk from places of interest.An excellant hotel and one we would highly recommend.
