“Most Incredible hotel room ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

My husband, son and I traveled to Florence in May of 2012. The Hotel J and J was recomended to me by a coworker. It was fabulous. We had a Junior suite and it was HUGE. My husband said it was about 750 sq ft. Very comfortable. 2 twin beds, 2 pull out couches, desk, side boards and it was air conditioned! We also had excellent wireless internet. I chose all our hotels because they were centrally located to the sites and the hotel J and J did not disappoint. Very easy to walk to all the sites. Hotel staff were also very attentive. Allowed us to have breakfast early because we had to meet an early tour. Arranged tours for us. Very accomodating. The Hotel J and J was wonderful on every level - we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: I would definitly pay alittle more for the Junior suite. It was really worth it.

We chose the non-refundable classic room option (clearly explained on the website). After an initial mix up with a previous option no longer available, an extremely helpful employee (Richard) upgraded us to the Deluxe room for no extra charge. What can we say, a fantastic spacious room at the front of the hotel, with modern bathroom, excellent air conditioning (needed with the high temps in August), and extremely clean. Fresh towels and sheets were provided/laid on a daily basis.

It was a beautiful hotel, situated in an ideal, quiet location. In my opinion, a hidden gem on a plain looking Florentine street. The main attractions were all in easy walking distance.

The breakfast was quite varied and we particularly enjoyed the option of breakfast cake. Breakfast included: fruit, cereal, ham, cheese, criossant, bread, toast, scrambled egg, bacon, juices, yoghurt. The breakfast, lounge and reception area were charming.

Wi-Fi worked for us in our room, you just need to ask for it (you will be given a username and password).

A great stay! we would recommend the hotel.

Charming old hotel in the heart of old Florence near the Pontevecchio and within walking distance of all major attractions. Clean, modern, great decor. Very good service from polite and helpful staff. Parking available if you are driving. Breakfast included. Comfortable beds. Great value.

Room Tip: The hotel in on a quiet street, so all rooms should be quiet. Rooms on the upper floors accessed by...

Be extremely careful when booking with this hotel. When you select a room online, there is no mention that it is non-refundable, and the terms and conditions are misleading as they tell you cancellation can be made 48hrs in advance... you'll find that you can't cancel and you're only told it is a non-refundable rate AFTER they take payment.

A hotel that is unwilling to accept cancellations with 3 weeks notice, and uses misleading terms and conditions, suggests they are not confident in filling the rooms - I can understand why having read some of the other reviews.

The Hotel J and J is an old, charming, and pleasantly quirky hotel. I enjoyed it but this place isnt for everyone. I would highly recommend it for the type of traveler who can appreciate it and enjoy its charms. The hotel is a very old and tranquil hotel in a centrally located part of florence. You are within walking distance of many of the major sites. There is a small courtyard in the middle of the hotel filled with flowers; a great place to take tea or coffee in the morning. The rooms are very clean but also old and filled with antiques. I was very comfortable here.
If you are looking for a modern five star hotel with impeccable service, the kind which will make you feel like you are in New York or Milan, this is not it. However, if you are willing to enjoy the unique charms of this old converted convent, I would highly recommend staying here. I enjoyed staying here and would stay here again.
