“Five in the absence of six.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

If you want to be mr and mrs Nobody, and drown into the crowd, this is perhaps not your choice. Very intimate atmosphere and treatment makes you feel that you are guest at somebody´s home and act accordingly. To our anniversary this was just spot on. Superb breakfast, excellent wines and beds, very friendly staff, what more can you expect? Highly recommend to read from hotel folder the history of the scupltor Ville Vallgren at whose neighbourhood the hotel is located.

This small hotel is in the heart of the old town. Rooms are good size with a suite style layout. Showers only and no baths - but excellent showers! The area is calm and peaceful and a good night's sleep assured.
Open your hotel room door if on the first floor and you are straight into the breakfast room. It is delightful and interesting with local specialties. Do try the barley porridge! On a Saturday and Sunday breakfast begins at 9am - on weekdays 7.30 I think.
There is nobody on site at night so don't forget the code for entry. There is no on site restaurant but the owners have a new one not far away which also had memorable local food of outstanding quality. Highly recommended.

We stayed in this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. What a gem! Small, intimate with just 10 rooms. The decor is very tasteful and the rooms are spacious and clean. Laura Ashley seems to be a favorite of the owners', as the brand can be visible everywhere. The beds are very comfortable.

The reception is only open until 6 pm but you can enjoy a glass of wine or champagne before that in the lobby. The breakfast room is small but the selection in the breakfast buffet is great. A lot of locally and organically produced breads, hams, cheeses, etc. is available. The barley porridge is very interesting. There is a small car park in the yard where you can park your car for a fee. The location of the hotel is in the middle of Porvoo's Old town.

The service in the hotel is excellent. The owner really does her best to make everyone feel at home and comfortable - it almost feels like staying in a friend's house. The only small minus is that noise insulation can be a bit poor between some rooms, so if you are a very light sleeper you should take a pair of earplugs with you. This was not a problem for us though, and we can highly recommend this hotel to anyone who prefers staying in a small boutique hotel.

I had high expectations for our stay at Pariisin Ville and have to say that we were satisfied after our stay. If you're looking for an intimate atmosphere and sophisticated but cosy stay you should stay here as it's situated at the most beautiful part of Porvoo old town.
Laura Ashley furnishing with historical inspiration really was something you will not get from the chain hotels. And personnel was very flexible with the breakfast as there were more than one settings. And the breakfast was collected by using the local producers, I loved it. Just a tiny thing was that one of the lamps in the room was not working but that's so small thing.
Will definately come again and recommend for others.

Being flawless is difficult. We loved everything in Pariisin Ville the first time we stayed there. This time there was some small things missing: no lit candles, some regular shower gel re-filled in bottles stating there would be citrus or sage scented stuff inside, no-one available in the evening to take orders for a class of wine, no hot oatmeal at the breakfast like last time... the small things that make a hotel boutique. Don't get me wrong, Pariisin Ville is still cosy, clean, friendly and nice - and superbly located. It's just not five stars perfect anymore. I wish I could give my fifth star back next time we come, as we quite probably will.

Very small cosy hotell with only ten rooms located in old town of Porvoo. Good breakfast, large rooms with own sauna, friendly staff etc. Only downside is that since this a very small sized hotel the reception closes early. Anyway, if you want a special experience, I will really recommend this hotel!

We spent one night in this little hotel, our room was large with its own little sauna and beautiful decorations. Only "minus" was the bed, it was antique and kind of loud... matresses were great though!
Breakfast room was bit small, there was no room for everyone staying there at the same time.
