Excellent customer service provided by Carol who is such a gem. She is so busy and accommodating still, the hotel should give her an assistant to help her out. Seriously.
Location is excellent, the top reason why we chose to stay here as it’s right smack in the heart of the Latin Quarter. A stone’s throw away from Fontaine St. Michel, Musee de Cluny, and my favourite, Notre Dame Cathedral- only 3 to 5 minutes walking distance. Easily accessible by the metro, half a block away, and right outside is the local bus which is what I regularly took aside from being able to walk everywhere from this location. We are surrounded by massive choices of food from greek, asian, european, to your local french, dishes courtesy of Rue de la Huchette- a street with endless rows of restaurants and some boutique shops. Along Saint Michel are where the affordable shops are and where local Parisians shop as La Sorbonne is nearby. Monoprix grocery store is also a block or two away.
Hotel room is modernly deocrated with colours of red and white. Bathroom is eco-friendly. The room of course is small, as all modest-priced Parisian hotels are, but it was adequate size for two people. Room size was not a concern for us as we had previously been to Paris before and had expected it. Whoever expects a big as North American sized room like the ones in Vegas should be realistic and change their frame of mind unless they are willing to pay the price of staying at a much pricier hotel.
This boutique hotel is worth the price of 230 euros a night with complimentary standard continental breakfast.
It is also a short walk to the Ponte des arts and the Louvre, about 20+ minutes.
They offer group shuttle from hotel to the airport which is a lot cheaper than taking a cab.
Hotel Albe St. Michel will be my next go to when I am traveling to Paris again. Although I must say, Rome & Florence trumps Paris a-n-y-d-a-y!
