This hotel is placed in the most prestigious of sites imaginable and to fully benefit from this fortuitous location, it is best to spend a little extra by asking for a river view. We had room 310, a corner room with views down stream and across the massive weir about 30m sheer drop immediately below us just after the region...

The hotel sits right on the river and I had a top floor room with windows on two sides overlooking the weir - beautiful! The room was fsirly small but for a,one night stop that was no problem. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom perfectly nice. Breakfast is in a large, light room, again overlooking the river and the choice...

The hotel has the best location in the city.The beatiful building with magnificient view of river Tarn. Rooms of the hotel were very tiny in contravention of 4 star rating. Menu of hotel restaurant was satisfactory and has reasonable value.

I would have given 5 stars were it not for the smallness of the rooms. Really small. And communicating through the airco system. Which can be annoying if your neighbour smokes. And worse if he sings. Which the guy did for 15 minutes. Nice voice though. But not after a hard day at work. The personnel is extremely nice and...

The hotel is very very hard to find in a one way street with number 41 over an arch with a bollard blocking it. There is no obvious signage in the road and missing the turn means going over the river to start the whole route again. When we eventually found our way the receptionist said there was nothing they...

This is billed as a four star hotel, it most certainly is not!! This hotel is completely without charm, atmosphere or comfort. It is a rip-off. The 4 star rating is not warranted, this is a 2 star hotel. The hotel has the best position in the town, set in a beautiful building with magnificent views of the river Tarn....

The hotel is across the river from the old city, about a 20 minute walk. The streets around the hotel were not nice, they lacked any charm; but we never felt threatened. We booked a “privileged” room which was exceptionally small. Maybe there was a two foot walkway around the bed. The bathroom door was a pocket-door and it did...

I asked for a room with a view over the river and it was superb. The view of the Vieux Pont in the early morning with the Cathedrale in the background is something to behold. If you have never been to Albi - GO.

The Mecure in Albi is like most Mercures aimed at the business customer, so the rooms are smallish, modern, efficient, but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay. Although to be fair as this is a conversion of a nineteenth century building using existing windows the rooms would have had to be smallish or very large. The parking is roomy and...
