Stayed at Grand Hotel D'Orleans several times when in Albi... the hotel is comfortable with large, clean rooms. Breakfast were copieux and good. Located near train station and other public transport make this hotel perfect to relax away from busty CBD yet close enough to enjoy the CBD ... never had anything to complain about so keep coming back!

We had two big adjoining rooms at the back of the hotel. Very clean and quiet. The pool is nice ( not big). Ample parking around the hotel. The walk into the centre is a bit long at the moment because a foot bridge has closed.

It is a fairly basic 3 star close to Railway station. The parking costs €10 a day but it is undercover and secure parking. Breakfast is €10 50 but there is no where else nearby They do not have enough staff for breakfast or available tables. Surprisingly there is BBC world and CNN on the TV Enjoy the walk to... More

The hotel is very conveniently located opposite the railway station and is an easy walk into the beautiful town of Albi. Very comfortable rooms, friendly service and great food. We really enjoyed our short stay and plan on returning.

This was a WOW hotel, best of all we have stayed in thus far in southern France. We drove and found free parking right in front of the hotel - how convenient can you get!

We arrived late at night and left somewhat early the next morning, but enjoyed our brief stay. Staff was friendly and helpful and the location, directly across the street from the railroad station, absolutely convenient. No noise problems (it's more of a suburban setting and there's no overnight railroad operations) and a nice view of the surrounding countryside from our... More

Visited Albi with friends, out of season, (January) and stayed for two nights. Public areas beautiful, rooms adequate, staff great, breakfast great. Would happily return. A short, brisk walk from the centre of the city, but otherwise all OK.

We stayed at this hotel as part of an excellent Travelsphere tour. I got the feeling that they had taken previous comments on board and were doing their very best to make our stay better. The first room we had was very clean and acceptable except the bed was a small double. It also had a tinge of cigarettes despite... More
