We had not been to Orleans before and, frankly, did not expect much from the town or the hotel. How wrong we were on both counts! The hotel is an exquisite little jewel that is beautifully done and, to American sensibilities, has a very luxury B-n-B feel. As to the town, while it doesn't have many "tourist" attractions, it was... More

We travelled by train from Paris to Orleans to visit the Loire Valley Chateaus and were very happy to find that our Hotel was literally across the road from the train station. We were very luck to have travelled on a train with lovely O rleans locals who spoke English and showed us to the Hotel - Merci! The hotel... More

Stayed here a few months back, and had a nice time... Rooms are small but cute.. Nice boutique feel. No parking which is a shame , but can park on road once you e worked out the rather complicated tariffs. Great street market on a Sunday... That's what bought us there

The only things to stop this hotel getting a 5/5 was the very steep staircase (Mrs Meltonwrite's knees are shot and there is no lift) and the lack of aircon. The hotel provided a fan but it was noisy and not adequate in the early July heatwave. Otherwise perfect - great location in easy walk of Cathdral, shops and river.... More

We stayed in Hotel de l'Abeille on a business travel. The hotel was lovely and cosy, located in a quite street, yet very close to services and public transportation. The staff at the reception was very friendly and made us feel very welcome by greeting us with our first names from the first night on. The organic breakfast was well... More

Very odd hotel, decor was fussy and busy. Not the run of the mill. Uncomfortable, cold atmosphere. Breakfast was dreadful so we passed on it the second morning. No parking available but, as we were staying at the hotel we did get discounted rates in public parking

Dear Lady, Dear Sir, We are really sorry that you didn't enjoyed your stay with us. About our decoration, all our customers are very found of it, you can find in our hotel a lot of art objects (painting, sculpture...) this is the way we do because our hotel is a museum-hotel. The atmosphere is not cold but warm, we... More

A beautiful, historic family-run hotel in the heart of Orleans, this place is an absolute gem. It's spotless, and decorated very traditionally which makes the boutique hotel inviting and comfortable, making you feel right at home. Good WiFi throughout, even up to the rooftop terrace, which is a great asset in the city centre. All of the rooms and bathrooms... More

We - 2 adults and an 11 year old - stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is in a quiet street 5 minutes walk from the cathedral and the music conservatoire. The hotel was built in the early 20th century and survived both wars. The stairs are a little steep and there's no lift. We were on the 4th... More

Beautiful hotel. Old world charm. Incredibly friendly staff. Such a unique and wonderful hotel. Centrally located in Orleans. I've stayed here many times and it's always been a great experience. Highly recommended!

The Abeille (bee) is worth its price - the rooms are exquisitely decorated, very clean and functional as well. Tea and Breakfast were good, service very friendly and helpful (we stayed one night). Well located in the shopping area with nearby restaurants and parking. Absolutely recommendable.
