“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

We stayed Hotel Albe for 5 nights at the beginning of December. The location, in the Latin Quarter is great. Just round the corner from the grand Saint Michel fountain, a short walk to many of the sights and close to the Metro and buses.
The room was small, clean and very warm at times. The radiator in the room was noisy (air in the system) and the adjusting valve doesn't work.
Free WiFi, umbrellas, high floor room was positive surprises, late cleaning time of the room, a small number of english and german TV channels negative.
The staff were friendly and very helpful.
But all in all a little hotel with good location.

The perfect location, next to St Michel RER to the airports and in the dead center of latin quarters and the Seine banks. Decent rooms with rain shower. Staff will go out of the way to make things happen.
A tiny hitch though, the breakfast room is cramped and coffee comes from a machine.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of November. The location, in the Latin Quarter is superb. Just round the corner from the grand Saint Michel fountain (lovely when lit at night), a short walk to many of the sights and close to the Metro and buses.
The room was small, clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate. The continental breakfast was just right. The staff were friendly and very helpful.
The only downside was that the room was too warm (ironically for November). It transpired that the Air Conditioning is turned off for the winter. They would have moved us but were fully booked.
But all in all a super little hotel and a very pleasant stay.

this hotel is a must for anyone wanting a sightseeing trip to Paris. The staff were great, the rooms were great and the location fabulous. Surrounded by cafes and bars and Notre Dame 100 yards away. We have stayed here three times and it never dissapoints. The breakfast is excellent and you dont have to get up too early as its not far to get to anywhere.

Room Tip: all the rooms were great and have a view of the street scene

Friend suggested this Hotel to us - so glad he did. Stayed here for 2 nights with wife and 11 year old daughter. Great little hotel in a great location - easy to get to via the Metro. Easy to get to most attractions from the hotel - can easily walk or catch a train to them all.. Friendly staff. We really enjoyed it.

It was our first trip to Paris, but our friends had been many times before. We were thrilled with their choice of hotel. The location was perfect, minutes from Notre Dame and the Louvre. We used the metro, the RER, and a bus, all from a convenient location right around the corner. The food options were plentiful, though we had dinner at some of their favorite spots, not necessarily close to the hotel. The room was small, but adequate. The bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. Large windows in both rooms were easily opened to hear street noise or not. My only complaint was that the bed was only a double. Our friends had a queen in their room, so be sure to check that when reserving. Six inches more bed makes a lot of difference! The hotel staff members were SO helpful with reservations and directions. I liked the security of leaving the key at the desk. I have already recommended the hotel to a friend who will be making his first trip to Paris next year.

We stayed here for three nights at the end of September. As is typical of most hotels in which we have stayed in Paris, the rooms are on the small side, but they are also clean, bright and recently renovated. Locaton in the heart of the Latin Quarter, is perfect for sightseeing and near the subway and Seine. The staff were pleasant and helpful, arranging outings and making reservations as needed. True; if you arrive early, you must leave your suitcases behind the front desk, but this in not uncommon. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Skip the breakfast and hit the bakery next door!
