Friendly Hotel in convenient location

Staff very friendly and helpful in this smart hotel. Room small so asked for upgrade and was given a corner room on the 4th floor with view of Seine. Very convenient near river, metro(St Michel with direct line to Garde du Nord), Notre Dame etc. However, could be noisy at night with general hustle and bustle if windows, which are double glazed, not shut at night. Everything comfy and clean. Did not try breakfast.

A good address in Paris

This is the second time I stayed at the Albe, the fist time by "accident" this time I chose it. It is just very convenient, 1/2 min from the Metro 4 and the RER B (take the elevator down to the RER to avoid the many steps and escalators, ask for it at the desk, or you will not find it.) 2min to Notre Dame. The Breakfast was very good, I liked how you can boil (time) your own eggs. The internet was fast and free.

Friendly Helpful hotel

The Latin Quarter is my favorite place to stay. This hotel is just off the Seine on a pedestrian road (our room had a bit of a view). It is very touristy, but I was a tourist and it was easy enough to find hidden gems in this arrondissement. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, always willing and able to answer any questions.

I searched all over for a kebab/schwarma place, and the one to the left of the hotel as you exit was great. I'll go back.

Great Location, quite room--- 3rd floor over street OK

Stayed on a Thursday night. EAsy to get to... I was on a Business trip..and this was my "FUN time" in Paris. Great location, fun to walk around and see street performers, eating out side, see the Notre Dame cathedral change in the sunlight across eating dinner. Close to METRO LOTS of CAFES with reasonable meals. Staff spoke French Spanish and English. VERY HELPFUL GOOD break fast at the hotel. Enjoyed REALLY good granola cereal, dates dried apricots..and typical French Break fast. VALUE: GOOD value for the price I paid ON LINE, 1 5 0 euro per nite

Too noisey for humans

When I first checked in and requested a quiet room I was told by the man at the desk "This is not a quiet hotel and if you want quiet, you are in the wrong hotel." No words could be truer. It is situated in a chaotic area of touristy bars, street artists and performers, eateries, and trashy souvenir stores. This is not left bank France but chaos. The windows do not reduce the noise enough to sleep. When it subsides at 4 AM it is replaced by a parade of garbage trucks and deliveries. I used ear plugs and a white noise app on my cell phone and still did not sleep. Surprisingly the rooms are clean and attractive, the staff is friendly and the hotel is well-located for public transit and site seeing. BUT the noise cancels all. Do not stay here if you need even slight quiet to sleep.

Cute little boutique hotel

This was our first time in Paris and we stayed at ALBE hotel. The rooms are small but they are small everwhere in Paris. We booked the room that has 3 beds (there were 3 of us) and it was perfect. Location is absolutely amazing! Staff were incredibly nice. We kept asking front desk every morning on how to take the metro and they were so nice and eager to answer us. LOVE THEM SO MUCH! I would stay here again!

Centrally located!

Pro's - great location, 3 min walk to the Seine, 15 min to Notre Dame Church, easy 20 minute walk to either the British Museum or London Eye, same to Churchill's War Cabinet Rooms. Small convenience store right across street and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. Con's - very small elevator (3 person), small LED TV, and only offer one English Channel in line-up (CNN International).

Totally Average

Not a horrible hotel, just nothing special. The location is great. Close to the Metro and RER to the airport. Very touristy area. Many bars, restaurants, and shops just outside the doors. We walked just about everywhere (Lourve, Norte Dame, Luxembourg Gardens) so I can't say enough good things about the location. The breakfast buffet (13 Euro) was average at best. Not a great selection but it was convenient and got us off to a quick and full start. Room was small, but was to be expected in Paris. My biggest complaint was the lack of Air Conditioning. The hotel has it, but only during the warmer months. With two people in a small room, it got warm quickly during the night and we were forced to open the windows (their sound insulation was amazing). But after we opened the windows the noise from all the tourists in the area was very loud!

Albe Over new years

This hotel has one of the best locations - near to metro, RER and Notre Dame plus dozens of very good (and relatively inexpensive) restaurants. When we return to Paris in the near future, we plan on staying here again. Clean rooms although a bit tight for three.
