Probably a bad chip e hotel. We had a huge room for 4 with two nice bathrooms. But unfortunately nothing else was quite a good, the aircon was poor, the bed were small doubles and room smelled. Breakfast was not great either. The hotel was in a pretty good location, 10mins or so from the station and 10mins from the duomo.


To be fair, we should have booked a 4 start.

Had my family with me on this one, very accommodating with kids, the breakfast is pretty good, the room in which it was served looks like an old chapel and is wonderful. The WiFi is spotty, probably due to the age of the building. I would stay there again for vacation, but don't expect to get much work done if there for business.

Room Tip: Rooms near the street are nice as the views are great, but the noise from the street is substantial...

Paris Hotel is in an excellent location, 5 minute walk from the train station in one direction and the other direction it is 5 minutes walk to the duomo. Our room was enormous, and had excellent air-conditioning. The free wifi was good but unfortunately only worked on one side of the room. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There was also a mini bar in the room with a nice selection of soft drinks. There were large shutters on the window meaning that we could make the room very dark at any time of day. The room was also nice and quiet. The hotel was good value, and I would stay there again.

The position is excellent, not far from the station and very close to the Duomo one way and the San Lorenzo market the other. The best of Florence is all within walking distance. The rooms seem to be either very large or very small. We enjoyed a large room with frescoes on the ceiling, rich brocade-style curtains and furnishings. Some of our friends that we were travelling with endured tiny rooms with scarcely enough room for suitcases. The breakfast is adequate and there is a pleasant terrace where we took our own wine for early evening drinks.

Very good location!! Ten minute walk to the train station, 5 minute walk to the Duomo. Surrounded by shops, restaurants and tabacchi shops, no need for a bus or taxi, walking distance to everything. They had a nice buffet breakfast, we recommend eating outside on the patio if the weather is nice.
The beds were very hard and the a/c in rooms doesn't blow very cold. Room 216 has a balcony and a twin bed in a room with a door and 2 twin beds and the bathroom in a side room for a group who wants a little privacy. The a/c didn't work while we were there so we were moved to room 290, nice open floor plan.
The Paris hotel reminded us of an old castle with actual keys to unlock your door.

Room Tip: Turn in your room key at the front desk before leaving for the day.
