“Great if you can tolerate street noise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and enjoyed it. Location is really good. The hotel is modern, in good condition, and very clean. The staff is friendly. I like the room layout. They offer free internet. The hotel is close to the elevator for Saint Michele-Notre Dame RER station (corner od Quai Saint Michel and Rue Xavier Privas. New and not widely known entrance #6. It is so new that you cannot see it on Google street view yet). Supermarket is not far away (~300m, just follow Rue Sait-Andre des Arts, that continues to Rue de Buci, before the corner with Rue de Seine).
The breakfast is unreasonably expensive at 11 euros. The pedestrian street (rue de La Harpe) can be noisy deep into the night due to people shouting, singing...

Room Tip: Due to street noise, it is better to be on the 4th floor.

Hotel Albe is situated just meters away from the St.Michel avenue in the Latin Quarter. Few minutes walk to Notre Dame, easy access to tube/train. Very clean and tidy rooms and excellent attitude and service at the reception. Rooms are fairly tight, a bit warm, beds are super - worth the money

We stayed at Hotel Albe for 4 nights and were pleased. It is a nice clean modern hotel located in the best area. One block away to the subway. You can visit all Paris by foot from there if your feets can support it.

The only hiccup is the noise coming from the streets and the next rooms (slamming doors and piping). We took a room on the fourth floor and it was much better.

We did not tried the breakfast plan, but it looked like a continental buffet with boiled eggs.

By pure chance (and some TripAdvisor research) we have chosen Albe Hotel as our base for the 5 day Paris trip. What a find! The location is right in the heart of everything, especially if you are not into metro/bus/taxi. Nestled in the most colourful part of central Paris, the Latin Quarter, it provides the unique experience if travelling to Paris for the first time. Saint Michel Boulevard is just around the corner (supermarket, shops), cute little places for spot of lunch or dinner everywhere around you. Notre Dame is 3 minutes walk away, the city island with a market just near the Notre Dame, and 3 more minutes of walkin - voila, you're at the famous Hotel de Ville, on Rue de Rivoli (shopping, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, etc.) Since the Albe hotel is located just by the river, there is a convenient way to get to different city location cruising down the river Seine (look for Batobus stations).
Back to the hotel - great location, very clean, friendly (English speaking) and helpful staff. We stayed in a triple room which was OK in size (concerning it is Paris, famous for tiny rooms), with three double-glazed french balcony windows (no street noise in the room). The breakfast was very satisfying, buffet style.
Overall, Albe Hotel is a little gem and comes highly recommended! Will come back!

My mum and i stayed at Hotel albe for 5 nights in September 2011. We caught the euro star from London to Paris and found it very easy to catch the metro from Gare du Nord to St Michel. The hotel is a 1 min walk from the metro station. It is in the food area of the latin quarter. There are so many eateries to choose from. The hotel was very modern, clean and comforatble. The staff speak excellent english and are very accomodating. They are also very helpful in booking any tours, shuttles to the airport and printing boarding passes. Our room was on the 1st floor. It was a lovely, clean room. It was very spacious for Paris as was the bathroom. The hotel is within walking distance to the Notre Dame, Louvre, Jardin de Luxembourg, FNAC, St Germain De pres and Pantheon. We did not have breakfast at the hotel but there is a fantastic bakery right next to the hotel if you choose not to have breakfast at the hotel. Although it can be very noisy on the streets at night, you could hardly hear any noise in your room.The hotel was the most expensive out of our whole european adventure but that is Paris for you. Hotel albe was in a great location. I would most definitely stay at this hotel again and i highly recommend it to others!!!!!

The first thing to note is the very friendly and helpful staff. The room was a good size for Paris and the bathroom was surprisingly large, with a great shower. The breakfast was very good, and the location of the hotel is perfect. A very good choice!

The highest compliment is to say you would choose again - and we would! The location is about two minutes walking from the metro stop and you feel as if you are in the center of Paris. The room was small, clean and very comfortable with little street noise. We did not have A/C but it was not a problem. The breakfast was more than we expected and the staff was quite willing to help with questions. From this location, you can walk almost anywhere in Paris or take the metro right outside this hotel. We'd love to come back and when we do, we'll choose Hotel D'Albe again.
