Spring at the Parisi Hotel in York


Spring 2020

Spring is in the air and the bulbs are starting to burst in the garden while the fire is still roaring in the sitting room.

For 2020 we have some new parking arrangements, including 30% discount at the Barbican Q Park and some limited prebookable spaces nearby.

We are excited to now accept small groups (3 rooms/six people) together, which means families and small groups of friends can now stay with us.

Our friends, the lovely Barbakan Polish restaurant at the end of our street, which many of our regular guests know and love, has now moved slightly further up the street to Fossgate into a new larger premises which used to be home to the renowned Blue Bicycle. It is now called the Blue Barbakan, in honour of the former restaurant there. Early reports suggest it is still a wonderful place to eat and you can find out more at the website here: They are keeping hold of the old premises and will be opening a pastry and dessert shop there soon. We will keep you updated as soon as we know more.

Autumn/Winter 2019

Autumn is the perfect time to visit us in York; crisp days out exploring, warming up in front of the fire in the sitting room library, dinner at one of the many fantastic nearby restaurants. We still have some rooms available in October, and November and December are filling up fast for Christmas shopping and the St Nicholas Fair.
