Beautiful historic hotel close to everything. We absolutely loved the decor with lots of interesting details. The bed was large and comfortable. Everything was clean. The breakfast was the usual French continental breakfast and pretty good.

Hotel de l'Abeille is a must-see little jewel in the city of Orleans - as a frequent traveler I must say it's rare to see a hotel that is so beautiful and so well-maintained in every little detail - multiple generations of the same family (as they told me :) ) run this hotel and it shows that these folks...

This hotel is situated in the heart of the city an excellent location. A beautiful exterior and a fantastic antique interior. Great room on the third floor, no lift... loads of stairs. Very friendly staff and a lovely breakfast. Recommend

I stayed three nights and found it lovely. Meticulously clean, good location, comfortable , large and unusual charm . Location - easy walking from train station , restaurants ,cathedral , right on main shopping strip and a supermarket close by . My room 401 was up four flights of stairs but the climb was worth it. If you have mobility... More

If you're after anonymous, international, five-star luxury, then Hotel de l'Abeille is probably not for you, but if you're passing through Orleans and in need of an elegant, comfortable,characterful, quirky and quintessentially French place to stay, then I would definitely give it a go. Housed in a classic French Art Nouveau building, we loved Hotel l'Abeille. In our opinion, the... More

This hotel missed the mark a bit for us. The location is great, making it easy to walk everywhere, it is in a charming building and the decor is interesting. There were a few annoyances though; the need to keep your key with reception rather than coming and going as you please. We were disturbed by noise from other rooms,... More

Dear Madam, Dear Sir, We are sorry that our hotel does not fill all your expectations. We take pride that our place is the safest possible. As always open (24/24) that you had to give us the key when you go out allows us to ensure that no one enters illegally in our hotel. So all our customers sleep well... More

Bad news first - like many hotels in old towns, there is no elevator and the stairs are narrow. Be prepared to struggle if you're above the first floor. Good news - a great location in the middle of Orleans and a friendly welcome. Our room was a wonderful period space covered in vivid flock wallpaper. Bathroom clean and tidy... More

service was charming and personal. Hotel was in great location. Decor was charming. Smallish rooms, no elevator, but help with luggage. The kindness and friendliness of staff compensated for any shortcomings. Lovely stay.

What a lovely, friendly hotel. We stopped here for a night and had a fabulous stay. The receptionist recommended a superb restaurant for dinner featuring local organic produce; our room was so sweet, lots of antiques and individual touches (we were given an upgrade when we checked in- a lovely surprise!) Breakfast was huge and delicious. This is the *only*... More

We took this hotel's recommendation from Rick Steves, and we were not disappointed. Yes, like most places located centrally in old European cities, one has to park off site after dropping the bags, but the walk (or trolley ride) back is part of the charm of this hotel's convenient location at one end of a pedestrianized shopping and eating thoroughfare...
