The pension is located on a building from end of XIX Century (1893); close to Patriarca Square and facing the Historical Building of the University of Valencia.
In 1934 the building hosted the first Guest House. Due to its location, facing the Historical Building of the University of Valencia (founded by the end of the XV Century, in 1499), main guests were students from the University of Valencia. 50 years later, in 1987, the guest house changed the name into Pensión París.
Since the University was founded in 1499 until the 70’s on the XX century, the neighborhood has been always linked to students. This fact contributed to create a lovely and lively atmosphere on the neighborhood.
Nowadays the university atmosphere has been moved to the new campus areas; and the neighborhood has turn into the area of the city centre where the most exclusive & top-of-the-range shops are located (Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Loewe, Lladró…).
Recently pedestrianised Patriarca Square and presence of nice historical buildings (Estudi General, Colegio del Corpus Christi, Palacio del Marqués de Dos Aguas…) make the neighborhood an ideal and quite place in the heart of the city, but just a few steps from the night life action (Barrio del Carmen).
