JK Place

JK Place is a 20 room boutiqe in the charming but slightly off-central square of Santa Maria Novella. It has been created by the same architect who worked on the Ferragamo hotels, and the effect is a triumph of elegance and cool, modern eclecticism. However, this is an intimate hotel, and most of the rooms are not large, so if you are not in love nest mood and want slightly more anonymity, mixing with record producers for breakfast on the same table might not be your idea of fun.


Reception is a small sitting room and a 2nd, TV relaxing room, scattered with Chinese prints and other drawings on the walls and propped on the floor like an overflowing art gallery, a mix of antique and contemporary. Walls are of cool grey stone, the floors dark wood, a modern echo of Renaissance Florence. The classic and superior rooms are in love-nest mode, small, often shower only, but some with flour posters, and all with complimentary soft drink minibars, flatscreen TVs and DVD. Decor is cream, with grey/taupe fabrics, Rocco Forte style. Rooms with interior courtyard views are dark. For larger rooms, Kings are best, and for separate showers book a junior suite, which also has a private terrace. The largest room, the Master Room, overlooks the church of Santa Maria Novella, while from the duplex penthouse suite you get a view of the Duomo. There is a small rooftop terrace with a long lounge bed, romantic at night, decked like a boat.


Downstairs again there is a small covered courtyard dining room for breakfast and an all-day light buffet.
