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.

... got off the bus and
had to walk up to the Leaning Tower from the coach park. It was very hot and
very busy. It took us about 15 minutes to walk there. We were then given 45
minutes to take our photos and explore the tower. It was very interesting to
see it and our tour leader had explained that when the tower was being built –
it was actually build leaning. They build the first floor an noticed it was
leaning, so they built the second level to ...
... to La Spezia but once on the next train realized it only went as far as Pisa. So off we were again at Pisa looking for a train to Florence. We found one easy enough but soon learned it was a light rail train, which made every single stop and at that time of day was as hot and crowded as a Chicago subway in August at rush hour. We made it to Florence but we sure needed a shower when we got back.
Later when we walked out of the apartment ...
... believe I live here. However, I definitely know that I live here and it's not just a vacation. Starting with the apartment. Everyone always seems to need to cook and be in the kitchen at the exact same time. Dirty dishes are always in the sink, the stove is always in use, and we don't have a microwave, so it's hard for more than one person to be cooking at a time. If any of you know me, I get hangry and I don't like waiting around for food. ...
This is when you know you have found a good group of friends. Their idea of a wonderful Saturday is planning and doing a gelato tour of Florence! We went to 5 different places and tried sooooooo much gelato!! We had planned to go to 10 but by the 5th we were sooo full of gelato that we have decided to finish our tour on a different day. I was able to work off most of the gelato I had just eaten because after the tour I met with my ballet workgroup again to practice ...
... next stop was Astor - a more Americanized bar then the others. It was pretty dead so we were on our way to the next pit stop. A few club promotors were on the street handing out fliers and we all managed to get "Free Shot" cards because it was "my birthday". We then made our way to "The Lion's Fountain" to sign the Iowa State T-shirt that was hanging on the ceiling. Yes I signed it "Sarah Schreinski" - ...
