J.K. Place was the first boutique hotel in Florence, and is centrally located in the square of Santa Maria Novella. The square takes its name from the beautiful, Gothic church located there, which can be seen from the comfort of the hotel.
The well-known architect Mr. Michele Bonan, inspired by the philosophy of personal service and luxurious surroundings, created this stylish boutique hotel. Traditional architecture is combined with contemporary decor, whilst maintaining the personality of local traditions.
This Chic Retreat has a sophisticated bar and restaurant, the J.K. Lounge, where guests can relax with a fine wine or enjoy a post-theatre dinner. From the hotel's rooftop, guests can take in the stunning views across Santa Maria Novella, or else sit on the hotel's candlelit terrace which sits directly on the square.
The hotel provides the perfect city bolt-hole and weekend escape. The staff and brilliant Manager, Claudio, provide such a great level of personal service that it distinguishes J.K. Place as one of our favourite luxury hotels in Florence. They speak a multitude of languages and can cater for guests whether staying for business or pleasure.
The concierge can help with any enquiries, and are happy to point you in towards the best sights in Florence. Located in the heart of downtown Florence, the city is at your fingertips.
For those who want some pampering, the Olimpo Spa is just two minutes from this luxury hotel, and use of the steam room is complimentary for guests.
During December, the Christmas market in Piazza Santa Croce is less than a 15 minute walk from J.K. Place. We highly recommend taking a peek at the 'presepe' (nativity scenes) at the churches on the way.
J.K. Lounge is hotel's sophisticated bar and restaurant, perfect for a glass of wine and dinner after a day exploring Florence. Alternatively, have a romantic drink in the warm light of the Pink Room.
The restaurant serves innovative contemporary dishes and traditional cuisine. On Sundays take a leisurely brunch with a generous buffet of handmade cakes, tarts, cheese, meats, cereals, salads, a hot dish to order and freshly-baked bread.
While you can start your day with a selection of tea, coffee and juices, the bloody mary's and bellini's are exceptional! Breakfast is served downstairs under the glass roof, which floods the room with so much natural light you will be forgiven for thinking that you are outside.
