The hotel at a glance
To celebrate our anniversary, my friend and I had decided to spend a few days at JK Place in Florence. We chose this luxury boutique hotel because of its location on the famous Santa Maria Novella square, close to the Renaissance Basilica of the same name. The photographs we saw of the place were immediately convincing as was the fact that it was just a short walk away from the Duomo, the Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio.
When we discovered the JK Palace, it was obvious that the establishment looked more like a private villa than a hotel. As soon as we entered, we were struck by the startling contrast between the noisy busy city and the calm and silence reigning in the hotel.. We immediately had the impression of being at home, a pleasant feeling increased by the kindness and the extreme friendliness of the staff. The tasteful and elegant decor successfully combining classic and modern styles is perfect to relax and unwind.
It was pleasant to have breakfast in the charming courtyard, to have tea in the cosy sitting room with its black and white stylish decor, to relax in the astonishing “pink room” and to enjoy the sunset on the roof terrace.
And our room? A really beautiful junior suite with its fascinating mainly white decor, sophisticated and simple. It was marvellous to come back to our room in the evening to unwind, after a busy day visiting the city, in this immaculate and fresh setting. We could not find better!
I must confess that our gluttony was unfortunately also satisfied! In JK Place, cakes are available all day and they are simply delicious.
Visiting Florence is no doubt a real delight but staying at the JK Place is the cherry on the cake !
