TravelPod Member ReviewsParis Hotel Florence
After a drama filled day it's nice to be in bed ready for a snooze.
It all started with a delay in getting to Florence from Bologna, then onto our hotel Villa le Rondini which was bloody woeful so we moved into hotel Paris right in the centre of Florence... However we forgot our passports at the last place so B and I made our way up the mountain to our old place via bus and retrieved them.
Some Caramel gelato for dessert and into bed now after looking at some leather bags as mine broke running for the train today!
Bad day ready to move on

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
A bit over-rated
I found the Paris Hotel a bit disappointing considering the other good
reviews this hotel has received. I stayed twice - the second time
simply due to convenience and difficulty in getting a room elsewhere
*Reception Staff - probably the hotel's best asset. Very helpful and very pleasant.
*Location is good - about half-way between the station and the Duomo - ten minutes each way. Rooms facing this street can be very noisy if the windows are open. Appears to be on a main ambulance route.
*Room - first stay (Room 110), felt like the 'box room' and was disappointing. Long and narrow with the bed seperating the bathroom and wardrobe, with only about six inches (if that) left between the bottom of the bed and the wall to walk through. Room during my second stay was bigger.
*Services - elevator out of order during the first five days, still out of order when I returned after five days....and stayed that way until I left three days later. Fortunately there was a Porter to assist with heavy luggage.
Room safe - was a bit of a worry! Two digits non-functioning on the
keypad - not a big problem but a nuisance having to ask the staff to
open the safe and then re-entering combinations etc. Did not appear to
be any attempt to fix the problem - it was solved by just entering
*Rating - supposedly a four-star hotel, but in comparison to other three-star hotels, there did not seem to be any 'extra' services or facilities to warrant this rating.
*Price - not really worth 175 Euros/night for a single room.
Internally the hotel is pleasant looking, the ceiling in the breakfast
room is lovely, but the rooms are quite basically furnished. Overall, I
don't think I'd stay there again........
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.
The art of Paris
I'm sure that you will enjoy staying at this hotel, it is quite simply a masterpiece in decorative splendour.
My wife and I loved our trip to Florence but staying at this hotel was one of the main reasons we will be returning. The breakfast room could give you a sore neck as you admire the ceiling, decorated with inspiration from the Cistine chapel. Our bedroom was so spacious that a monorail could be installed.
The food was excellent, location is perfect as it's sandwiched between a five minute walk in either direction from the train station and the Duomo.
There is impressive imitation(?) art work on display in the lobby and even in the rooms, but the real treasure is the extremely helpful and friendly staff.
The prices are also surprisingly reasonable, when you arrive, you will know what I mean.
Stay here and you will not regret it.
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.

... sardine can on wheels, the driver had no regard for human life as he barrelled around corners and slammed breaks, seemingly forgetting the large herd of what now smelt like cattle in the back. People were anxious, sweaty and desired heavily to get out. At times you couldn't, people missed their stops because they simply couldn't get through the pack of people to get to a door. Finally we made it back, somehow unscarred. Sidebar is that we haven't paid for ...
... Antonella was our guide so between the 2 of them, we knew what was happening. So we started by getting the ragu started and simmering, next we made the bruschetta mix which was our starter with a lovely local red. Next we made the pasta, yes we ALL made pasta and not a machine in sight, just good old fashioned elbow grease. Brendan was having a fantastic time and loving every second. He was of course the life of the party, flirting with Carmella and Nonna Maria, they wanted to come back ...
... try my hand at the San Lorenzo Market. It is comprised of many stands that line the streets in an open air market. I wanted to do this over stores because you can barter more easily. Although you can barter in both, it is often easier to get deeper discounts at the stand. The store will say they can come down a certain percent, they usually start at 10% and go to 20%. They say they can't go lower because of the overhead. Where a stand doesn't ...
Gill we walked through the leather market area and could smell the leather from all the handbags, jackets, belts etc. No sandals that I could see. Scarves are hanging on every other stall and our first, and only so far, purchase was a pink scarf for Paige! We also looked over the aprons with David on them and decided we could definitely give them a miss!
In the Central Market we happened on ...
