“Great location and good quality hotel facilties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Brilliant location, close to bars, restaurants and importantly the RER from CDG Airport. Possible to eat very well at relatively low cost in the Latin Quarter. Hotel was only a few minutes from Notre Dame and may other of the treasures in Paris. The desk service was professional and very helpful.

Having tickets for the Theatre de Chatelet, this hotel was perfectly situated. It was a nice short, scenic walk away. We arrived late afternoon to check in, to a welcome that was not as friendly as I would have expected after all the great reviews; it was very good in the morning though, so I guess the young man on the desk was not having his best day :) The room & bathroom were very clean & functional, though a little small, but as we were only staying for one night that wasn't a problem at all.
The temperature in the room was very warm; the two options were fan or heat, air con didn't seem to be available, but maybe I just didn't press hard enough?
The bathroom was fine, though just some small détails: only 1 large towel, when we were 2 in the room (by the time we realised this it was very late so we didn't request a 2nd one), the toilettries were a little meagre, but sufficient. The shower screen was slightly too short compared to the length of the shower & when using the main power head, water tended to splash out onto the bathroom floor.
Our room faced onto the street, but as we arrived late in the afternoon & went straight back out we didn't notice. We also backed onto the lift, so needless to say, it was rather noisy!
Check out was quick & friendly & the receptionist offered to keep our bag while we had breakfast. The dining room was very nice, the food was fine and the staff were friendly.
All in all the experience was positive and we would probably visit this hotel again; but certainly ask for a room on the other side :)

Room Tip: Room n° 101 - backs onto the lift (elevator) and faces out onto the street which is quite a noisy ex...

For first time travellers who are looking for an authentic old village experience, this area is the best of all the latin quarter areas. Cheap authentic french food to classy french restaurants. 10 euro will get you a choice of entree main dessert. The take waway crepes, gyros and paninis ... fabulos french bakeries, homemade chocolate shops and little botiques. Cimes alive at night with street performers etc. The hitel was only 2 star even though they state 3 star. The unpleasant smell in the receotion area is awful. The rooms are dirty and verg small even by french standards and the teceotion staff were un helpful other than one we struck at check out time. The shiwer stunk with a waft from yhe drain as well. The parc hitel in thecsame area just around the corner is leaps ahead of the albe znd on the simolar tariff ... eould drfinitely not stay here again.

Room Tip: Dont book although it does have a comfortable bed.. if you were desperate an overnight stay is just...

We travelled by Eurostar to Paris for 5 nights. This small hotel was ideal for us as a couple. It's 9 stops on the Metro to a station which is about 30 seconds walk from the hotel,although initially we took a taxi from the Gard du Nord. The area is awash with restaurants and bars so you could eat out for a month here and go somewhere different every night. Fairly traditional Plat du Jour menus as well as fondue and raclette but the density of restaurants keeps the prices competitive.
The room was chic and very comfortable. Good double glazing meant nights were restful too.
You're right next to the Seine and Notre Dame here and can walk to the Louuve in about 25 minutes. However unless you're a seasoned walker I'd recommend the Metro and save the walk for the Louvre which is immense and exhausting. A walk along the Rive Gauche to the Eiffel Tower on a lovely December day took about an hour.
We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel as you can wander out and find a cafe.
All the staff we met were very friendly and overall the hotel has an intimate feel. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

I took my 20 year old son to Paris for his first visit, of course he loved it and wants to return! I picked Hotel Albe St. Michel for its location and price, and was pleasantly surprised to find the room very comfortable and the staff was exceptional. Everyone spoke English and they were so helpful when we needed questions answered or recommendations. We were able to travel directly from CDG to the hotel via the RER, which is easy and cheaper than a taxi. We walked almost everywhere, but used the Metro to get to further destinations. There are many great restaurants in this neighborhood, shopping, and even a Starbucks if you need a big coffee for your walk along the Seine. Notre Dame, Sorbonne, Pantheon, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and many other sights are all walking distance. We loved our trip and having a hotel in a great location was key, plus free wifi! The only thing I wish we had was a coffee maker in the room. Other than that, it was great!

Room Tip: We had a corner room, great view of the street and activity. We kept the windows closed most of the...

Went as a surprise birthday treat, location at the edge of the Latin Quarter was super, room excellent and very clean, great staff who were all very helpful with the added bonus of being relatively inexpensive for Paris!
Would not hesitate in going back to stay again.
