Impossible. Hype, by definition, is an exaggeration beyond the reality.

End of nitpick.

Rang the night bell, checked in. The city was dead quiet. Slept well. Opened my eyes to see sun shining through the laced curtain on the 19th century window. Opened the window to Paris. Beautiful buildings across the street, blue sky and the buzz of activity a block or so away.

I rushed out as soon as I could. Walked toward the Tuileries where a giant Ferris Wheel had been set up. Rode it and got a view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. What more could one ask for?
Paris France is Gemini feeling for me with mixing of personalities façade mirror twisting. Eiffel Tower, Palace Of Versailles I am forever extremely grateful on top of undeniable world class iconic, yet architecture might up too overly consistent silver, nightlife not ubiquitous with stereotypical cafes. Tourism friendly nevertheless. On Continental experience, I trophy Prague Czech Republic, Bratislava Slovakia, Milan Italy, Bucharest, Constanta Romania, Nice France, Innsbruck Austria Tyrol, Madrid, Seville Spain, Vienna Austria right above Bonjour land.

Amsterdam (better to have an extended visit or live in than a short visit), Paris (excepting for the crime issue), New York in the 90's (my earliest recollection), and Bern.

London, Seoul, San Fransisco, Las Vegas... ALways great.

Well technically I never hated a city, always found a lot of charm everywhere. Even in the dirty places of Naples. The only place I deeply hate is Paris a saturday afternoon in July when there's no place to move because of thousands of tourists and horrible RER D, 45 degres in gare de Lyon because no AC...(I live/use near one of the worst line in France-Europe I think).

I forgive to Paris because it has other qualities . Unfortunately, I will leave it soon. Bye Bye Paname

This is highly subjective but in my opinion...

Barcelona is overrated. I was so dissapointed - it didn’t feel cosmopolitan at all, nightlife wasn’t that amazing, Horrible neighbourhoods when you go away of the city center! Even the hood where Park Guell is localted is so meh -
Prague is just stunning, I felt like in a fairytale - Paris is wonderful (one of my fave) - people were friendly in both places and I wasn’t expecting it.
Honolulu; so beautiful, clean, good public transit (probably the best American city in terms of quality of life)
Nyc was a bit dissapointing (too dirty with trash bags everywhere, poor infrastructure (horrible buses, subway, airport)
Montreal; so underrated and it’s such a great city (nice people. Lovely architecture and green areas, great food and nightlife )
