I did a lot of looking on the net for a good 2 star hotel in Paris. When I saw the good rating of the Hotel France Albion Hotel, and the location, I booked a room for 3 nights. Right now, there is construction on the road just outside the hotel and it will be lasting until the end of the year, from what I understand. So, the front of the hotel does not look like you see in photos. The staff is very nice and helpful. My room was very small with a twin bed. I liked the bathroom. The breakfast room is charming. If you do not want to pay 13 Euros ($16) for their generous breakfast, you can walk directly across the street to a little restaurant where I paid 6 Euros ($7.50) for orange juice, a cup of tea (you can have coffee instead), good French bread and butter and jam. That satisfied me for 1/2 the price. The hotel is located between two metro stops. The St. George and the Notre Dame de la Lorette stops. The St. George stop is the closest, but not by much. It's a great location if you are coming into the Montparnasse station as you don't have to change trains.
I would recommend this hotel for singles or couples. It's in a good location and the area is nice (besides the temporary construction on the street that is taking place this year).
