Outstanding hotel, staff and entire experience

We loved our visit to Florence and staying at JK Place Firenze only enhanced it. The rooms and all the common areas were gorgeous, comfortable, beautifully appointed, and the aroma from the room diffusers scattered throughout the property were divine. I tracked down the company that makes the home fragrances and, although the aroma made for JK Place is proprietary, I was able to purchase the fragrance on which JK Place's scent is based. Whenever I walk past the diffuser in my powder room at home, I'm pleasantly reminded of our time at JK Place in Florence. The staff could not have been more pleasant, helpful and earnest. My only complaint was that food service, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner, was a bit slow. However, the seating areas in any of the several sitting rooms or out on the plaza were so beautiful, waiting wasn't spent in vain. Our next trip to Florence will definitely include staying at JK Place. Thank you for helping make our 25th wedding anniversary even more special.

Overpriced / over rated restaurant

Very small portions of half cooked pasta (allegedly 'aldente') - paid 150 eur for 2 pax almost no food & one super expensive glass of wine, sitting outside to smell the gas from motorcycles riding around the square... the naming of the dishes sounded fancy but they are very basic vegetarian recipes made to sound fancy. Service over sold us 2 starters despite ordering one to share. If you are in for something fancy, just look for any other place..

Amazing

I can not say enough good things about my stay at JK Place in Florence. The space is beautiful and welcoming, the staff kind and helpful, the rooms well-appointed. Great location, too. The food and beverage director remembered my preferences which was also a nice touch which made the stay feel very personalized.

Outstanding Experience. Great location, service, and hospitality.

If a sixth star were mine to give to the JK PlaceFirenze, I would give it without hesitation. Outstanding location and outstanding 5 Star service from the most amazing, knowledgeable and helpful staff. I am not easily impressed when it comes to hotels, but this one ticked off all of the boxes for my my partner and myself when we travelled to Italy this past September. The hotel is well located in the city right on the Piazza de Santa Maria Novella. Though active both day and night, it’s surprisingly quiet and peaceful. The hotel’s outdoor cafe has a great vantage point from which to look out onto the square. The menu offerings available both indoors and outdoors are quite outstanding. We were almost tempted to take all of our meals there, but naturally Florence having so many wonderful options available blocked us from doing just that. That said, we did manage to at least have our breakfast each day at the hotel and managed to fit in a cocktail each day in the afternoon.

At this point while on the subject of the food and the service, I want to be sure to mention that we received some wonderful treatment from Andrea Pieri (Food and Wine Specialist) on staff at the JK Place Firenze. Always hospitable, accommodating, personable, and knowledgeable about all things Florence, food, and wine. He in every way helps in a big way to put the shine on the JK Hotel Firenze experience.

If you choose to stay at the JK Place, you will find yourself very well situated in the city and minutes on foot to so many of Florence’s well known sites. How does one rave about all of the wonderful amazing things that Florence, Italy has to offer. Therefore, I won’t wax on about that which is obvious to anyone who visits the city. The hotel staff was very helpful at providing all of the advice one would need to set out on their exploration of the city.

We are gym oriented guys and always need a gym nearby as it is a practically a daily requirement for each of us. The management set us up with a gym nearby ( The Florence Gym) and even provided us with towels and water. The concierge practically walked us to the gym the first time we went. The gym was located just a street or two from our hotel’s entrance.

We would go back without hesitation and we are already planning to do so in the near future. This experience has perked our interests in both their Rome and Capri hotels as well as a new location soon to open soon in Paris.

I highly recommend the JK Place Firenze.

Best Ever! Amazing Staff
