“Good location, but Noisy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

The location is great but, Our first room was on the Main Street side of the building. The car, bus, motorcycle noise was so loud even late into the night. I awoke thinking I was in a stadium from the people on the street talking & we were on the 3 rd floor. Great view & nice bathroom. Very tired carpeting. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choices. The 2nd room we got on the other side of the building was much quieter. One thing I didn't know, there is no heat available until Nov 1st. That was shocking to me as the rooms can get cold. The is a city issue as the power costs in Italy are so expensive. A 5 minute walk to the train station made it easy to travel in & out of the city.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

This hotel has everything, location is just great, five minutes from all the fabulous attractions. History within the walls of the hotel itself, really impressive. Breakfast room to inspire with painted ceilings. Staff that are the most gracious that you found find anywhere. But beware of room no 224!! It is tiny, and the bathroom? Don't get me started!
Will I be back? Sure if I can be guaranteed not to be placed in dreaded 224!!

The hotel is centrally located--so walking to the major sites in Florence is very doable. However, this hotel needs some serious housekeeping. The beds are a challenge to comfortable sleeping and the rugs need a serious cleaning effort or total replacement. The hotel is tired in need of painting, and cleanliness is evidently not a priority! I am surprised at some of the wonderful reviews I read before our stay! The four of us felt the same about the hotel rating. The breakfast staff was gracious and the food acceptable. However, this hotel needs a thorough cleaning, updating and new beds.

Room Tip: Rooms are large but in need of updating. Cleanliness is not a priority in this hotel!

My friends and I stayed here on our recent trip to Florence. First of all it is very convenient to the train station and located in the perfect area for touring. However, we were very disappointed in the rooms. Our first room was smoking and smelled of smoke. Unfortunately they were unable to move us to another room so the next night we were moved to a room that did not smell like smoke. I think all of their rooms are smoking since both rooms had an ashtray in it. The elevator is tiny and can only fit one person with their luggage. We were on the fifth floor so this was not convenient. The breakfast was not impressive. If you plan on not spending a whole lot of time in your room and want just a good location then this would be the right hotel for you.

This is a good mid range venue for a stay in Florence. Close proximity to museums and other important sites. Nice breakfast room and terrace available with a good choice of breakfast foods to choose from. Very helpful and polite staff.
Our room was quiet even though it had a street view.

Room Tip: An upper storey room is recommended

The Paris Hotel is a converted palazzo, complete with frescos, tapestries and lead light windows. We were in Florence at a very busy time, but the staff were always helpful and friendly, the breakfast buffet was plentiful, the room clean with fresh towels and toiletries daily. And the Duomo is visible from the front step, just a short walk up the road. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Our room faced the street, near the breakfast room. It was wonderful.

Clean and safe. Any questions and or concerns were always dealt with. Staff are always eager to help and give any assistance required, cabs, money exchange etc.. Great location. Only blocks from the train station and with easy walking distance of all major sites.
