The whole experience with J & J hotel was superb. Booking and selecting our preferred rooms; there are many of all shapes and sizes, one of the best has many stairs leading to it, but it is a huge spacious room. All decoration has been done throughout with great taste and attention to detail. Staff are most helpful and accommodating, everything dealt with swiftly. Hotel is in a very convenient location for exploring the city landmarks in all directions. Breakfast buffet is plentiful, great selection of pastries, cold meats and hot options, fruits too. The Courtyard can be used for taking breakfast in warmer months or nicely secluded for an apertif or night cap. Drink prices are very reasonable. One of the loveliest boutique hotels we've stayed in. Thank you J& J.

Marvellous and cozy hotel 7 minutes from Duomo at a walking distance in Santa Croce. Very friendly staff, nice and well decorated rooms. Quiet, as a convent would suggest. The musts, bed and shower, are fantastic. Nice and convenient breakfast with Tuscany cold meats and pecorino cheese. The best choice in Florence.

This is a lovely hotel, with very friendly, helpful staff. The courtyard was beautiful and the 'happy hour' provided an opportunity to have a proseco or coffee after a full day of exploring Florence and surrounds. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and could be taken outside in the pretty courtyard as well. Our twin room was very spacious, clean and very comfortable. However, we could hear everything from the room above... EVERYTHING - not just footsteps and conversation!!!! If you want a quiet, undisturbed stay, don't stay in room 11! The only other point to note is there is no elevator. If you have mobility difficulties ask for a ground floor room.

We made reservations for the J&J Historic House hotel referral from couple that stayed 5 years ago. Old building quaint, outside garden very nice. When we arrived our room was not ready. They held our luggage since we had tickets to museums. Later that evening went to check in, we had three flight of stairs to the room. The other couple had two flights of stairs. Both rooms the bathroom was on first floor, bedroom had winding concrete stairs on 2nd floor. The advertisement does not mention no elevator nor bathroom not on same floor as bedroom. We had two rooms reserved for two couples, one person had hip surgery problem with stairs the other knee problems Requested two other rooms, they only had one available that was four flights up to the room but did have bathroom on same floor as bedroom. Unable to stay afraid of falling down winding concrete stairs from bedroom to bathroom, checked out. Understand cancellation policy charge for two days, they charged us for the four nights we reserved not willing to work with us.

We loved our stay at this chic hotel. Very friendly staff, lovely rooms, great breakfast, close to the city centre and full of atmosphere we would definitely return. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated, perhaps a little dark for our taste, and quiet.

We stayed at the J&J at the beginning and end of our trip, and each time was lovely, relaxing and memorable. Walking in, you immediately get a sense of quiet ambience and sophistication. The staff was gracious and helpful, patient with every request! Our first room was small, overlooking the courtyard, but with tall windows and a separate, large shower room. Our second room, room 3, was just stunning - more $$$ but large, comfy and w/ frescos on the ceiling! Typical & delicious breakfast of cereal, yogurt, eggs, cheese, meats, fruits and sweet pastries. Walking distance to all the major sights, and we enjoyed exploring the neighborhood of Santa Croce.

This hotel was perfect for us. The staff assisted in arranging our day trip to Venice as well as other trips and were very helpful throughout our stay. Breakfast was very nice and provided early for us when we had to depart early. The location on a quiet street, yet close walking distance to the hub of Florence was perfect and the character of the hotel conversion from a convent was wonderful. Bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. Highly recommended.

I stayed at this hotel 2 nights at the end of September on a business trip. I arrived late after a long busy day and hoped to have some food in my room and go to bed. Room service was not available ( why not clear !). Went out and got a pizza take away and when back to my room I realised that there was no chair ! Another missing item is a drawer ! How can a 4 star hotel has no drawers ??!!! The bathroom was good size, with separate wet-room, toiletries very basic, no shower cup, no cotton pads, nothing rather than a small soap and shower-gel. And of course no water, no kettle. Breakfast was ok, but the second day they forgot to serve me a coffee. Internet does not work well. The hotel has some charme and character, however my room windows faced the courtyard where other guests where chatting until very late. Staff try to be helpful, but lack style and professionalism. In the end it might be a good options for holidaymakers but not for someone who is on a business trip and needs functional services.

We spent 1 night at the hotel in room 2. Very large bedroom and bath. The room is located right on the indoor garden area which can be good or bad if people are sitting and talking right outside your room. We did not have a problem with it. The hotel was full but very quiet. We had a late train to Rome the next day but were able to spend the day in the hotel all day off and on as needed. They allowed us to use the restroom and even have a cigar and cocktail in the enclosed patio area. The location is great and front desk staff very helpful.

This hotel is lovely...with calm and serene 'feel-good' sitting areas and patio. It's location is ideal - close to walk to all the sites. It is bright and has a very welcoming lobby, with friendly staff. Beautiful historic building - which lends character to the rooms. We stayed in Room 2 - and although we did not get to see the other rooms, I'm not sure it would be my first is close to where the patio is, as well as where breakfast is served, so there is some noise in the room in the mornings. The room, however, was large and comfortable (for Italy standards!) so we did enjoy that when we walked in. Delicious breakfast - and made to order cappuccinos made it an ideal place to sit and read a book and unwind. Even the bar 'officially' closes at 9, the staff were always willing to make us a drink when we got back from dinner...sometimes after 10PM. So appreciated!
