Having already been to JK Place in Rome I was drawn to the one in Florence. It has the same style and atmosphere, it’s elegant, modern and luxurious, feels comfortable and relaxed. I love the contemporary artwork that surrounds you in every area of the hotel. Staff are helpful and friendly and I felt very much at home. I can honestly say this is a well cared for, stylish hotel located in one of the most beautiful piazzas of Florence. Perfect for business (as they say for ‘bella figura’) but also romantic. Quiet and traffic-free and overlooks Santa Maria Novella with views to die for! Every detail has been studied to make your stay perfect with fruit bowl and treats and attention to detail that will make want to come back. A bit more noisy than usual in this period due to renovation work taking place nearby, but that will soon be finished. And for a taste of home, as a contrast, an Irish pub next door!

J.K. Place is hands down my favorite place to stay in Florence. It is the pinnacle of classy, creative, beautiful design with heartfelt, top-notch service, in a to-die-for location. Right on Piazza Santa Maria Novella, J.K. Place somehow hides like a wallflower, but once you get inside you realize she's the belle of the ball! The place somehow strikes a balance between luxury and simplicity. The building really feels like a home -- I almost wondered if I had wandered into a private villa when I first walked in -- passing a living room with a fireplace where a group of Americans were laughing and drinking wine, I stepped into a library, which happened to have a desk, but the shelves were packed with books and DVDs. Stepping into the next room, I found myself in a gorgeous, sunny dining room, with a full aperitivo laid out. The last room in the line was another living room, this one with a TV built into the wall and another group quietly relaxing in there. Drifting back to the library, I encountered a man and a woman who gasped when they saw me, coming to greet me as though I were a long lost friend, a much anticipated visitor. It was a striking and heartwarming entry to this lovely place, and every moment I stayed there, my every expectation was met and exceeded. Of particular note was Angela. This woman speaks what seems like every language flawlessly and has a cultural fluency that could put anyone at ease. She is the embodiment of the vision of the hotel: classic beauty, modern, cool, and authentically welcoming. J.K. Place is a gorgeous structure with all the amenities and loving details (lit candles in the hallway! antler-armed chairs!), but Angela (and Michele) creates the heart that will keep me coming back to this hotel for years to come.

When entered this place, it didn't feel like I'd entered a hotel. There’s no obvious reception desk, and I wondered if I’d wandered into someone’s house by accident. There was a living room on the left with people hanging out and laughing with drinks and library-type room whose desk and walls were covered in books and movies (which you can borrow). Apparently, this is their reception "office." I proceeded to a dining room, where there was a nice aperitivo spread laid out. Still marginally confused, I forged on to a living room with couches and a giant TV. Eventually, I wound my way back to the library/reception and found Angela and Matteo, both super sweet and super welcoming employees (managers?) of the hotel. They later told me that the whole point is that this place isn’t supposed to feel like a generic hotel, but is supposed to be welcoming and homey. They also explained that the rooms are simple and decorated in neutral colors because they wanted their hotel to be a break from the over-stimulation of the city’s madness – and it’s true: the rooms aren’t striking, but they’re really nice, spotless, comfortable, and peaceful, and they have sweet little touches like a bowl of fresh fruit waiting for you when you arrive. Aside from the awesome staff, my favorite part was the rooftop terrace. I could LIVE on the rooftop terrace. I was bathed in sunlight, enjoying the smells of people cooking somewhere else, looking at the top of the duomo, sitting at one of the tables and appreciating the massive lounge area. I couldn’t decide if it was the perfect place to do some inspired work, or just to take a luxurious nap.

Oh my golly, I love this place. Florence is such an old city, it's refreshing to stay somewhere that feels so new, but it somehow works. The location is perfect, the rooms are drop-dead gorgeous, and I love, love, love the rooftop deck. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, and I love me some plentiful wifi (a lot harder to find in Italy than you'd think).
