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 …
... time so we walked to the Ponte Vecchio as we had been tipped off it wouldn't be part of the guided walking tour. We did buy souvenirs but don't get excited that it might have been in the shops on the Ponte Vecchio! We also stopped for coffee in an alleyway coffee shop and RK even scored a soy milk cappuccino, the first in Italy ...
... make him aware of this. So he went off to war and came back to find that she had been faithful. These rings became popular since the king had one made for his wife. They are called puzzle rings and I totally bought my own silver one. The only thing in florence that I wanted to see was the David statue. So after the leather tour thingo we walked to wear we could book tickets so we could skip the line to get in. It was about 11 o'clock and ...

Then comes the star of the show - a 2.5 lb. piece of perfectly seared steak accompanied by a bowl of patate in umido (boiled potatoes in tomato sauce) and a serving of Tuscan white beans, both specialties of the house and flavored to perfection. We devour all of it and head home to dream of what goodies we'll have tomorrow.

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.

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.
