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.

I spent one week in this hotel. It is very well located, close to the railway station, shops and the city centre with many restaurants. If you would like to have a lovely, romantic hotel, go for it, as the ambiance of the hotel is really excellent. It is a classic, elegant hotel with antique furniture and decoration. Loved that...

An elegant room, with lovely antiques and lime green wallpaper. Huge bathroom which was well appointed. The hotel is well located and the staff are friendly. The theme of sustainability carried through to the breakfast, which was nice but vegetarian.

Very comfortable hotel with helpful and cheerful staff. Upgraded my room for the 3 night stay for just 60 Euros before arriving at the hotel. Large well appointed room, beautifully decorated and attractive furniture. The bathroom was superb. Room 309. Not cheap at 135 euros a night but the hotel is very special and has character. The reception area is... More

I was there for two nights and used the smallest room of the hotel which is not small. The view from the room is limited but you have a table and a seat. The bathroom is small but including verything useful. The toilets are separated from the bathroom. The breakfast is just great, you can have french croissants, some fresh... More

Great B&B. It's a very cute place, in a good location near the train station. The rooms are cozy, and beautifully decorated. The people who run the hotel are very nice, and helpful with great suggestions. Would definitely stay again.
