Hotel Albe Saint Michel
Ranked #190 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2013

The hotel was perfectly located within easy reach to major attractions. Places which we could not access by foot was easily reachable by the subway which was literally within a couple of minutes walk. Many restaurants closeby very reasonably priced. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Room small but amenities reasonable.

The hotel is perfectly located, near Notre Dame, many restaurants, Ile de la cité, etc. It does not offer much more than a simple, clean, well decorated small room. If you are looking for amenities, this is not your hotel. If you are there for tourism, it will fit you perfectly. Corridors are small. Hotel receptionist is very nice. We had breakfast outside the hotel, it is literally down the hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms in the corner are smaller.

We too had a corner room with a view. Can agree entirely with other reviewers, the hotel is easy to access, either by Metro or RER and superbly located for walking access to many of Paris' attractions. The double glazing was highly effective in a busy tourist area.
There are a multitude of restaurants within a few minutes walk and the bakery on the corner is good for a quick breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the wifi worked well for us.

We were fortunate to get a corner room with a small balcony and a view of the Seine. Brilliant!
Very close to all public transport options (eg 100m from St Michel metro stop).
Double gazed windows shut out ALL street noise from the busy and lively streets below.
Ridiculously close to cafes, restaurants, small supermarkets, etc.
Notre Dame 500m away.
We never tried the on-site breakfast but others seemed to partake.
Friendly staff at all times at the 24 hr reception.
Would almost certainly stay here again when next in Paris.

Room Tip: The double glazing eliminates all outside noises. Ask for a corner room!

Paris is a bit cold in November but Albe hotel warmed it up with good location and good facility in the hotel room.

It's walking distance to most of the major sightseeing and a few minutes from the seine river. We walked to nortre dame in 5 mins, louvre in 15 mins, orsay in 15 mins, and the St. Michel metro station is one min away. Just make sure to take the St. Michel street exit from the metro and then it's 1-2 minutes walk to hotel. The station is used for both trains (RER) and metro. We took RER B from airport and got off at Nortre Dame St. Michel station and no need to transfer. At the same station we took RER C train to Vertaille palace without any transfer as well. Then the seine river cruise is about 3-4 long block away. We booked the "Les Vedettes du Pont-Neuf" night cruise online for 16 euros total for two.

There is a good bakery downstairs. We had our breakfast there a few times. For some reasons I don't see a lot of convient stores in Paris. We found a convient store behind the hotel where we bought our fruits and waters. It's kinda hidden at the end of a narrow street ally near the hotel.

The hotel room is small but clean. Our two twin size beds were literally next to each other. I like their shower facility the best. It is adjustable shower head came with strong water flow.

There were three minor things I think the hotel should consider to improve. First is the room temperature was too warm. We adjusted the heat meter unit but its still very warm. Not sure if it is broken. Second is the wifi connection got disconnected after 5-10 minutes of unuse. Sometimes we're unable to connect at all.

Overall I would recommend the hotel even though the wifi and heater had room for improvement.

Room Tip: Prior your arrival, sent email to the hotel and ask for room on higher floors. The neighborhood was...

Had a wonderful 3 day stay in Paris and would definitely recommend the Albe Hotel to others.

Whilst the room was on the small side, it was very clean, tastefully decorated and had wonderful acoustic double-glazed windows that kept out the noise at night. The air conditioning unit was brilliant and the shower was fantastic too. Moreover, the staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English (should you not wish to test out your mediocre french!). Couldn't fault the hotel at all.

The location is fantastic and very close to Notre Dame, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay and the Metro. Extremely convenient!

Loved Paris and the hotel.
