I was in Florence for a short trip and was inspired to stay at J and J for the simple reason that it was a convent. I had the room way at the top of the stairs and found it the be a spacious and peaceful stay. I found the location to be very convenient to some interesting sites and... More

This was my second time to Florence and the first time at J and J. My Mother, two children aged 14 and 17, and myself checked in for one night whilst on holiday touring Italy. I wasn't expecting all of the family of all ages to love the place so much, and all wanted to stay for longer! We did... More

The J & J Historic House Hotel cannot by any stretch of the imagination be rated 4* and in fact should have 2* at the most. However it can be considered historic in a number of ways including the level of cleanliness, decorative order, and standard of breakfast. We had room 18, which was imaginatively called a 'junior suite' the... More

I have never written anything like this before, as hotels and restaurants are subjective to different tastes, so I shall enter the facts. The location, for walking into Florence was great, although area abit shabby. If you have a car, the hotel parking is 30 euros a day, also going in and out of Florence costs more money, and tourist... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. The room was large. The staff were very nice; on our second morning there we came down to breakfast five minutes after it technically ended but the waiter did not rush us at all. In fact, he made us fresh coffee and brought out items that he was starting to put... More

We have recently returned from Florence after celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary.

Brillianr location for seeing the sites of Florence, far enough away from the crowds but close enough to walk to the centre easily. The room was large and very clean with excellent quality bedding, the downside was that the room was on the ground floor in the courtyard so therefore exposed to cigarette smoke and the noise of late night...

On arrival staff were more than helpful. The room was dark and narrow and we had to walk down a flight of stairs to a large bathroom.

Four nights in April and out first ever trip to Florence, expectations ran quite high for this 4 star Hotel but the overall impression we were left with was that it rather overrates itself. It is a good location but most of the staff seemed rather disinterested. Soundproofing in our room at least was poor, with a big gap under... More
