This accommodation was part of our 2700kms tandem cycling holiday through France. Our tandem bicycle was garaged in a secure facility. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, although the narrow steep stairs were difficult to navigate with our luggage. Our room was large, light and quiet with an ensuite which was very spacious with a shower over a bath. The... More

Perfectly located. Close to station, large shopping mall,main street, cathedral, various eateries. I managed to find free all-day parking in same street. Hotel is lavishly furnished with all manner of antiques, paintings etc. Very elegant dining room. Breakfast was a range of breads, pastries, jams etc. I was on the second floor. I'm aged 70 and found the climb up... More

The de l'Abeille is an utterly charming boutique hotel located in the trendy central area of Orleans, so it's perfect for your walking excursions. Decorations are done with tasteful antiques and modern updates to electrical and bathrooms. Rooms an average size which is smaller than a chain hotel, but that is OK. As w many fine boutique hotels, there is... More

This hotel was a marvellous surprise. It is a small, characterful boutique hotel in the heart of Orleans - it is very easy to walk everywhere and there are plenty of lovely places to eat nearby. The staff are very welcoming and the rooms are really lovely and restful, furnished with antiques and very comfortable beds. Breakfast is eaten in... More

A surprisingly quirky hotel well positioned for exploring Orleans. Staff helpful, cleanliness excellent. Room quite unique, it and the rest of the hotel full of antiques making for a quirky style....a nice change from the predictable chain hotel bedrooms. Parking available in nearby underground car park at a preferential rate. We were on second floor, access by stairs only.

This charming little hotel continues to offer outstanding value. It is well situated on a quiet corner not far from the station and close to the centre of this attractive city. We have stayed there several times and never had a problem finding a parking space in Rue d'Alsace Lorraine, which is metered during the day. There are secure public... More

My husband and I stayed at this charming boutique hotel for two nights and had the good fortune to experience two of their exquisite rooms, because we booked at the last minute and needed two nights in Orleans and the hotel only had one night availability. They found us a free room for our second night so we got to... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights just recently (end of July). The receptionist was particularly welcoming and even helped carry our bags up the very steep flight of stairs to the 3rd floor. We appreciated having a balcony on which we could breakfast and enjoy a drink or two! The manager provided us with a kettle and... More

Wanted somewhere close to centre so we could explore and have a drink on my wife's birthday. Easy to find and, on a Saturday lunchtime, plenty of street parking only five minutes from main square. Was going to use secure parking but reception (who spoke good English) told us that it was safe on the street and, as Sunday is... More

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
