Hotel l'abeille is situated just a couple hundred metres away from the Joan of Arc statue in the main square and nut far from the train station. We were using this as a stop on the way to bordeaux. It us a quaint hotel and our rooms were on the third floor. The stairway is very steep and narrow -... More

Hot work walking up the narrow stairs to the attic room which I had booked for my wife, daughter and myself. How they got the super comfortable massive double bed up there we'll never understand - helicopter?! The public spaces of the hotel provide a magnificent example of old French decor with its theme of 'the bee' and also lots... More

Stayed 2 nights, Arrived on a Sunday and the next day was religious holiday in France so got 2 days of free parking. It is on the street right outside the hotel and normally costs 12E a day. We were on the 2nd floor up a steep staircase but our luggage was brought up for us. The hotel and room... More

I nearly scored this a 4 instead of a 3 because it is quirky and quaint. But the squeaky floorboards, noisy water running through the pipes from the rooms above, and the lack of air conditioning resulted in me scoring it a 3. If you can sleep through these things then this hotel is a great option in a good... More

Had a lovely night at this charming, small hotel centrally located in the old city of Orleans. Our spacious room was the loveliest of any of the rooms we had in France -- beautiful antique furnishings, lovely linens, sparkling new bath. My only caveat would be that there is no elevator for luggage. They were very understanding about the challenge... More

We had a fabulous one night stay here on our way to the Dordogne and it was just perfect. A very warm welcome and a great big family room with an amazingly tiled and decorated bathroom complete with bathrobes, slippers and quality toiletries, made our stay even more enjoyable. Rather leisurely and slightly limited breakfast but we were in France... More

We stayed at L'Abeille on a stop-off in Orleans on our journey to the south of France. Orleans is beautiful and well worth a visit. Hotel L'Abeille is a fine, quirky, boutique hotel in the city centre. We had two rooms, each with a very individual style. The walls were stylishly covered with printed fabric and there were interesting pieces... More

Perfect stopping off point on our trip through France and great location on one of the prettiest streets in Orleans. Plenty of on street parking and longer term just behind. Dog was made very welcome. Rooms are small but nicely appointed and ours had an excellent refurbished shower room. Only downside is accessibility with steep stairs if that is a... More

nice hotel, good renovated and clean, friendly personal, great bio organic breakfast and stylish decoration - we loved our stay in this hotel without elevator but very charming woodstairs in the very center of the city - if you want to travel back in time it's the place to be!

I booked here for 2 nights for myself and my daughter. I chose this hotel largely because the New York Times had highly recommended it a few years back in one of its "36 hours in XYZ" columns. I don't know how this hotel got its third star; it's essentially a two star hotel with a nice lobby, as far... More
