“Great Location Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Stayed 1 night while in Paris and rented 2 rooms. Rooms are not large however they are comfortable and clean. Free WIFI is great. Booked large room for 2 of us and a smaller room for another 2 people. Very convenient to transportation, and restaurants. Short walk to Notre Dame. Very friendly staff. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for room with Queen and single bed

In the heart of the most exciting location in Paris. Near underground and RER, thereby allowing easy connection to the city. At night the small streets are exciting and small snack bars, bistros, and restaurants etc. gives you a nice chance to eat with good price. If you go to Paris for business, D'Albe is also a good choice.

My son, husband and I shared a first floor triple room at the Hotel d'Albe at the beginning of December.

On arrival, we were greeted by a friendly, helpful receptionist. She added that the extra pillows I had emailed them about a couple of weeks earlier had also been provided...impressive and much appreciated. Full marks for efficiency.

The corner room was spotless, with three big windows facing across the Boulevard St Michel towards the Louvre, with Notre Dame just round the corner! A great location in a very interesting and lively part of Paris. The bathroom was very clean with a hairdryer and toiletries provided, although some not replaced every day. Our beds were very comfortable with crisp white sheets and duvets with lovely soft pillows. Free WiFi is provided as well as a safe which is a useful addition. There is also a tv but who needs that when staying in Paris! Tea or coffee making facilities would have been good for an early morning drink but that's a minor point. Clean glasses each day would also have been appreciated. Although the hotel serves breakfasts, we chose to eat at various cafes nearby, including the reasonably priced Boulangerie de Papa which is next to the hotel's entrance.

Just down the road we found a very good Taverne (Taverne de Cluny) to spend an evening or two...so handy! In fact there are so many great looking cafes and restaurants in the immediate area, you are spoilt for choice. The Metro was just across the road but as the hotel was so well situated and the weather was so good, we walked to most places during our stay but it was useful for catching the train to and from Gare du Nord. We could even leave our luggage at reception, to collect later, on the day of our departure....very useful.

Our 5 night stay at the hotel was perfect.....friendly staff, lovely clean room and great places to visit. Would certainly stay there again.

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...
