An elegant stay at a four-star hotel in the heart of Florence, including breakfast and a welcome drink

The Lowdown

Madonna was right – Italians do it better. From its service to the style, The J and J is every Material Girl’s dream in Florence. A 16th-century convent turned four-star hotel, this historic building packs a lot in beneath its vaulted ceilings. Original artwork, frescoes and antiques sit alongside comfortable, contemporary furnishings in the 21 guestrooms, which celebrate the city’s rich past.
Kick-start the day with a steaming cup of strong espresso and a hearty breakfast, before setting off to take in the impressive Duomo, the Basilica of Sante Croce, the renowned leather market and the magical Ponte Vecchio, all easily accessible from this dreamy retreat.
Good to know
Some upstairs rooms are reached by a steep or spiral staircases. Those with mobility concerns may prefer to request a room on the ground floor.


The 21 guestrooms of this 16th-century Florentine convent are individually decorated, but all are elegant and thoroughly relaxing. Old and new marry in these modern abodes, which are filled with antique furniture, original frescoes and artwork.


Set yourself up for a full day of sightseeing with the hotel’s hearty buffet breakfast, which can be enjoyed al fresco in the courtyard when the weather permits. Continental and cooked options are available, as well as the hotel’s renowned Italian coffee. Room service is also available during limited hours.


The hotel’s Via di Mezzo location provides an oasis of calm just minutes from the popular tourist trail. If you decide to follow the crowds, you’ll uncover the Duomo, Basilica of Sante Croce, River Arno and Sinagoga just a short walk away. For transfers, the central Santa Maria Novella train station is a few minutes from the hotel.

We only stayed here for 1 night, but would have liked to stay a bit longer. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is located very near the heart of the city centre. The rooms were very nice and the bed was comfortable.
