Travel Blogs from Florence
After our trip to Venice we decided to take it easy and just tour more of Florence. It was good to spend more time local and not spending ours traveling.
I'm the type of person who tries to avoid big cities however, I was surprised when we arrived in Florence. It was a very nice city and we did not have far to go when we arrived. Our hotel was not far from the train station and was close to all the attractions.
The only issue we found with our hotel was the 120 steps up to our room. They put us …
... out on the farm and took some photos of the beautiful valley surrounding and then hopped back on the bus. We then drove to another smaller medieval town called San Gimignano. Our highlights there were La Rocca di Montestaffoli (a beautiful public garden and olive grove inside the ruins of the town's fortress), going up Torre Grossa (a tower that was once the home of a wealthy family) and seeing stunning 360 degree views of San ...
... Gustapizza is a small restaurant in the Oltrarno area, mentioned in my Florence guide book and on several websites as a favorite pizza place for many. It was very crowded when I got there just after 1:00 PM. I ordered a pizza with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, parmesan and basil, and took it back to the apartment. I have to say, it wasn't my favorite pizza from this trip—the crust was too salty plus I prefer thinner, crunchier crust.
I really wanted to ...
Our day started with a quick sprint to catch the bus to the station and then another even quicker sprint to catch the train; (and yes girls I had to run!) the very, very slow train into Florence...! The weather started off very dull and rainy but by the time we were walking around Florence the sun was shining brightly again. We decided to avoid the museums as ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsParis Hotel Florence
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Paris and it is located in the perfect spot. If you are staying for an extended stay this is a good location. Just two block over is a place to do your laundry. and several good places to eat close by. The staff was very nice and helpful. They can get you advanced tickets to many of the attractions.

Historical Traveler Reviews Paris Hotel Florence
I found the Paris Hotel a bit disappointing considering the other good
Must stay Hotel! I would comeback here!
This is a great hotel, we stayed for 3 nights and the room was clean and has that old Florence decor. Breakfast was great, the staff let us make sandwhiches to go so we had something to nibble on for the road.
Must stay place.Close to Train station and Duomo and in the center of everything.
It is located 5 mins from the train station and 5 minutes from the duomo. Clean, comfortable hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
The breakfasts were excellent, they have a wide selection. The artwork on the walls/ceilings is a must see. This is definitely a unique place to stay.
We were at the Paris Hotel during the big one day blackout in Italy.
They were kind enough to allow us to overstay our checkout time to determine if we could go ahead to Rome. When we could not, they extended our stay in the same room at the same price. The room we had was huge, with a very high ceiling and very good A/C system. The continental breakfast was wonderful, with a coffee/expresso bar, fruits, yogurt, meats, breads, sweet rolls, cheese, juices, etc. And they allowed us to carry it back to our room. I would highly recommend this hotel for comfort, service, and convenience.
I always stay in hotel paris becasue of the location. The breakfast is good and room is clean. You can find much cheaper hotel around this area but I like my choice.
A good visit
My husband and I spent one night at the Paris hotel. We had rolling suitcases and it was an easy 10 min (maybe less) walk away from the train station. It's about a 5 min walk away from the Duomo. Our room was very spaceous, the airconditioning worked well and the bathroom was very clean and modern. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and very helpful. The hotel and its' rooms have a very historic feel to them.
I'm sure that you will enjoy staying at this hotel, it is quite simply a masterpiece in decorative splendour.
My family and I recently spent 5 nights here at the Paris hotel and I would just like say, that the staff was so very helpful. They helped us with ticket and taxi reservations without any problems. The hotel is in an excellent location because it was only a 5 minute walk from the train and bus stations and not far from the major attractions. I stayed in a triple room which contained a loft, so it was more then enough room. The only downside, was that the shower was too small but I guess that is what they are like in Italy.
Loved the Paris
My husband, adult daughter, and I spent three days in this historic, small hotel. The staff was helpful, the breakfasts were excellent, the room was spacious as was the marble bath, and I particularly loved the feeling of age in the building and the stenciled ceilings. Only downside, we preferred to walk up the wide staircases rather than wait for the tiny elevator.
