“Excellent Albe Bastille”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The Hotel Albe Bastille was a real gem: the staff and services were exactly what one would expect when staying away from home. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, no matter what time of day or night. The room we had was always spotless, and the bathroom and toilet (for persons which mobility issues) were about as spacious as some other hotel rooms! Overall a delightful stay, close to the Metro, and not a single issue with noise from anyone. Well worth a visit!

Very clear room, good hot water shower but European style, prone to get the floor wet. Comfortable bed, air con a huge plus in humid weather!!! Good breakfast but costs extra (13 Euros). Staff are very very helpful and friendly, English spoken. Good location 10-12 minute brisk walk from Gare du Lyon with good RER connection to Charles de Gaul. Rooms could use hooks to hang things, and my safe didnt work -- apparently they are all being upgraded but security wasnt an issue. I would definitely return to this Hotel. Ask for a courtyard room to avoid noise except when it rains the drainage echoes in the courtyard, was kinda pleasant though.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing the courtyard

Walking distance from many bars/clubs and restaurants in paris. Night life is great. The hotel was clean and friendly staff. The sink however was a little slow in draining the water however the shower haas great water pressure and spacey. The toilet was also apart in a different room than the shower.

We stayed at this hotel one night because the previous place we had stayed was booked for the last night of our trip. Hotel Albe did not disappoint. The room was clean and comfortable, however it was a tad tight, even for Parisian standards. Check-in was smooth and the concierge was very accommodating allowing us to store our luggage for a few hours until check-in. The room overlooked a small, but very impressive courtyard that felt very Parisian. Breakfast wasn't included in our rate and we thought 13 euros was a tad expensive so we went around the corner to the variety of cafes and patisseries available. It's close to the Metro and therefore has great access to all of the tourist sites in Paris. Definitely a budget conscious hotel, but still feels like it's in the midst of all the action.

This was my first time to Paris and the hotel was the perfect base for touring the city. Considering how expensive Paris is, this was a real value pricewise, close to the metro (which was the only way we traveled while we were touring the city), just around the corner from boulangeries/patisseries (I strolled to get our breakfast each morning at these places - chocolate au pain, croissants, quiches, etc.), very clean, and the staff were helpful and professional. It is a smaller room than I'm used to, but for what Paris has to offer and at this price, you can't beat it. My husband and I had the room we needed and the bathroom was a decent size. I did have a bit of a problem getting the floor wet when showering. We had requested a quieter room, so though we didn't really have a view, we very much appreciated the blissful quiet that allowed us to sleep. Oh, and we were also very glad to have an a/c. I would definitely stay here again if I traveled to Paris for any reason.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, request it and you'll probably get a room facing the small courtyard, but if...

The room was charming and decorated in typical french style. I booked a single room but got a double for the same price! The staff were friendly and helpful and all in all I would definitely recommend.

My fiance and I stayed at the Hotel Albe Bastille for 5 nights in June 2014. I would've given this review 5 stars were it not for the incredibly tiny rooms - we didn't have enough floor space for our suitcases, and that was a bit of an annoyance, but we got used to it. It was also tricky to shower without getting the bathroom floor quite wet. Other than that, the place is VERY charming and elegantly decorated, the staff is extremely helpful, and the hotel is located right near the metro and Gare de Lyon.

Breakfast was not included, and we only had it the first day. There were juices and coffee, French breads and pastries, some cereals, yogurts, cheeses, fruit, and deli slices of meats. As is typical of many French and Italian hotels, none of the breads or cereals were whole wheat or multi-grain, as is our preference. The rest of our stay, we ended up running to the nearest Franprix (a 2-minute walk) and having our own yogurt and cereal along with the instant coffee provided in the room. They also provide free teas and biscuits in the room, which fewer and fewer hotels seem to do nowadays.

They also provide free wifi, which was reliable, and the air conditioner worked pretty well, though we did end up setting the temperature VERY low to get it comfortable enough to sleep. Our room faced the street, and we still slept very well, though we do bring white noise machines when we travel.

All in all, this is a great three-star hotel.
