Service was excellent in this convivial place. Very quiet time a night and very comfortable bed to recover from a long day working in Firenze. This historic hotel has a lot of cache. I recommend highly your stay there!

Staff we friendly and very helpful when needed. Our room was better than expected, old feel but modern, clean and homely. Set on a quiet side street and a short walk to all major sights in Florence. Breakfast had good range of fruit/bread and pastries. Will stay again!

Visited the hotel on August 9th, 2016. This is a maximum 1 star hotel although it is advertised as a 4 star hotel. They justify the poor condition of the hotel and furniture saying that it is "old and historic". So is the rest of Florence and Europe so don't fall for that. The staff is very willing and tries...

Our room was a Quad suite accommodating 2 kids and 2 adults. It was perfect, and huge! The hotel was close to everything, the staff were overly accommodating and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We stayed for 2 nights. Loved the layout and the design.

This could be a wonderful hotel if.. Breakfast was calm and serene, personnel was very noisy, I wonder if they need to change plates , glasses and cutlery every month. The room was great, but it was damp and had a strong cellar smell.

Arrived late at night. No sleep all night due to the A/C in the room which sounded like a diesel train and could not be turned off. The room wasn't very clean, there was dust on top of mirrors, furniture, etc, and no wardrobe or anywhere else to hang clothes. The beds were small (anyone over 5 feet tall would...

Within a 15 minute walk to everything but located in a quiet neighborhood. We ate in local restaurants away from the tourist zone. The renovators were skilled at adding modern conveniences but preserving old world charm and frescos. Breakfast buffet was more than adequate. Lobby and courtyard were a wonderful respite midday.

We felt really happy about this little gem that we found on Internet. The hotel is classic, elegant, cosy... everything was perfect for our honeymoon. The personal was really nice and profesional. We will go back soon.

Fantastic quiet location just a short walk from the city centre. Our room was large and overlooked the courtyard. Breakfast was nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful.There were a few steps to our room which was not a problem for us at all.

J and J was a wonderful hotel in Florence. The location is great - it's a walk to many of the sights in Florence. The breakfast is in a beautiful room and courtyard. The service was wonderful and the room was very nice. There are only 23 rooms each one is different. Ours had a circular stairway to a small...
