3rd time in Florence. First long stay. Good hotel, priced at market rates, a little bit out of the center on a quiet street. 30 minutes walk from the train station. 10 minutes to Duomo. Decent breakfast;scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, croissant, buns, cereal,fruits. Good restaurants, close: Giostra, Natalino. Room was just a little bit humid. Not a big problem.

The interior of rooms are a few years past a redo. We were there 10 years ago and I don't think the carpet or bed spreads or bathrooms have been redone. It's starting to look a little seedy. Broken armoir, split wood in bathroom. Isn't it possible to get an American tv network - not news? Staff is great. Breakfast good.

My husband and I traveled to Florence and stayed at the J & J Hotel on our honeymoon. The rooms were traditionally decorated - simple, Tuscan style. The common areas were very cozy. A nice variety of food was available for breakfast. The staff was very accommodating and helpful and the hotel was in a residential area of the city without being too far away from the main attractions. We would definitely revisit the J & J Hotel!

Parking very pricey. Limited information about what is going on in Florence and surrounding areas. Great, large rooms, the only drawback was the air conditioning system that is noisy, but you can turn it off at night after chilling the room during the day.

THE ROOM WE GOT #13 WAS SO SMALL WE COULD NOT EVEN OPEN UP A SUITCASE UNLESS IT WAS ON THE BED. THE SHOWER SPRAYED WATER EVERYWHERE. IT DID HAVE A NICE PATIO WITH UNBRELLA TABLE BUT NO CHAIRS. THE OTHER ROOM OUR PARTY HAD #12 WAS LARGER BUT THERE ROOM SMELLED LIKE MOLD BECAUSE THE SHOWER WAS NOT SEALED AT ALL AND ALL THE WATER RAN OUT INTO THE BEDROOM ON TO THE RUGS. THEY DID REMOVE THE RUGS AFTER ASKING THEM TO. IT WAS QUITE A HIKE TO FLORENCE AND IT WAS IN A SCARY PART OF TOWN FOR WOMEN ALONE. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS A 4 STAR HOTEL. THE STAFF WAS GREAT WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ONE YOUNG LADY WORKING AT THE FRONT DESK THE DAY WE LEFT.

For the price this was an excellent 4* hotel. Our room was very large and quiet with its own stone staircase from the hall. We had a modern, large shower/toilet and the bedroom had a large bath which was separated from the main room by a low wall. The hotel was in a narrow street with no shops or other hotels so it was quiet but it was only about 4 minutes walk from the Duomo and 2-4 minutes from the busiest parts of Santa Croce. Friendly staff. Breakfast was good. We would stay here again.

Many thanks for the great help provided by the employees to find a garage to repair our car. Very helpful. The pictures on the web only show the most spacious and beautiful rooms. So you don't have any idea about the look of the "standard" room and it comes a bit as a surprise.

Also on this vacation we stayed in Rome at the Marriot Grand Flora (and I'm a Marriott Platinum Member), and in Venice at the Hotel Carlton Grand Canal and by far the Hotel J&J was the best of all of these hotels. The property was the best (quite location off the beaten path), the rooms were the best (size, funishings, best AC) and the staff was the most helpfull. Thanks for a wonderful stay in Florence!!!

Room was very large up steep flight of stairs. This hotel has some charm, is well-located, and the service is adequate but not great. This was a holiday period, so the staff may have been reduced. But outside phone calls to the room were not promptly picked up and forwarded by the front desk, nor were calls from the room to the front desk always answered timely or at all. The room was very expensive and not as good a value as a hotel very close, the Mona Lisa, where we spent 3 nights after 4 nights at J and J. Shower was small, given the price paid. Staff was courteous and helpful in making reservations for museums but night-staff not too responsive. Breakfast offered good selection including eggs, and umbrellas were provided for those who did not bring their own. Not a good choice for those who are older and can't handle climbing stairs or who are disabled, as there is no elevator.

Lovely hotel, well worth a visit. Lovely comfortable rooms and good service. Great location for centre of town The only downside was that the patio area outside our room was shared with another room. This room happened to be inhabitated by boorish Americans who took possesion of the patio and invited all their friends down.

When we first arrived, we discovered that our air conditioning was not working, so the concierge upgraded us to a junior suite--at no additional cost--and sent us a bottle of wine, apologizing for the inconvenience. This was typical of the service we enjoyed at J & J.

The hotel is an excellent renovation with each room being totally different. We were allowed to choose from three rooms. The location is quiet but, a long walk from the major shopping areas. It is reasonably close to many historical sites. The hotel staff was excellent in obtaining dinner reservations and museum reservations.

This is a lovely small hotel with an extremely competent and friendly staff. The building was once a convent and it has been lovingly restored. Our room was spacious and our bathroom was fabulous, with a large shower and separate tub, and excellent lighting (rare in Italy). The location, near Santa Croce, is excellent. There are many good restaurants within easy walking distance. This hotel is truly a small jewel.

Superb. Large rooms, nicely equipped and decorated. It's an old convent from the 14/15th centuries so there were ghosts of nuns and a distinct odor of sanctity. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to the most beautiful room in the house - #9. The hotel has a good library in several tongues, a cloister of sorts, and a very competent and friendly staff. I spend 60 days a year in hand-picked hotels and this is one of the best. The nun ghosts are a bonus.

the room which we had was large, spacious and clean, but the temperature of the room could not be regulated. i thought the room was a bit overpriced. the location in santa croce is great - close enough to the center of town to walk with several small and excellent stores and restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but far enough away from the noise and crowds of the center of town. concierge service was excellent- extremely helpful. the noise level from within the building one morning was very surprising and disturbing. it sounded as if people were moving furniture above are room at 6:30 AM.
