Hotel Chiffre
Ranked #15 of 26 Hotels in Albi
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Stayed one night in this centrally located hotel and enjoyed our stay. It is an old hotel, quiet and perfectly situated for exploring the town of Albi. Loved the single beds which were quite a bit bigger than the normal 90 cm width and very comfortable. Bathroom was adequate but spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful, including recommending places to eat. Finding the car park could have been difficult but we were given the address by a staff member and found it quite easily with the help of the sat nav. Parking arrangements were excellent - we were able to leave the car until we were ready to leave, much later in the day than check-out time, allowing us another whole day in the town. We chose the continental breakfast which was just fine.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked a very pretty courtyard, so was quiet and relaxed

This hotel is just of the main road, in a quiet side street. Our room overlooked a courtyard so there was no noise. The room was spotlessly clean & so was the bathroom. Breakfast was taken in a small dining room and was more than adequate. Staff were extremely helpful and had good English. It is difficult to find the parking area but the staff have a map with the postal address so we could find it on our satnav which was a blessing, as the back streets are all one-way.

Room Tip: Overlooking the courtyard ensures it is quiet

Me and my daughter stayed on this hotel for just one night. The hotel is ok and the staff is very sympathetic and helpful. They have a free parking but I had some difficulty to find it after I've check-in.

They have free wi-fi and the bathroom is pretty good. I loved the village of Albi which it's historical centre is just 5 minutes away.

We stayed in hotel chiffre in Albi for one night. It was perfectly situated for sight seeing and it has parking so we were able to leave our car there from when we arrived one afternoon until we left Albi late the following afternoon. The staff were particularly friendly and welcoming and theroom was adequate. I'm glad we booked a superior room as it was very 70s in decor but spotlessly clean . The only negative comment I would make is that though breakfast was included in the price it was very mediocre. The measly was like cardboard and in France they should serve more appetising bread and croissants. Having said that I'd stay there again for the location but would have breakfast somewhere else !

This hotel is well placed just on the periphery of the old town
The hotel is quite basic but the bed comfortable (- no extras like tea/coffee making facilities or safe) and the room relatively small. There is a locked car park, but relatively expensive. However the location makes it ideal for a visit to the city.
We did not have breakfast, preferring to take our chance in the city

The welcome was a little formal and cool. The room was fine. Clean, well presented, bedding good quality and bed comfortable. One problem with the memory foam mattress. I always find these make me very hot after a night. Thankfully the night was cool.

Plenty of room for parking but could not understand why it was necessary to drive round the houses to eventually arrive back in the back yard of the hotel. Perhaps the building work which seemed to be under way necessitated this?

Overall good, reasonably priced hotel which I can recommend.

This was great place to stay. It is close to the old city. It has enclosed, safe parking, though difficult to get into and out of.
The desk staff is not particulary warm but very efficient. The rooms were clean and kept that way for our stay. The breakfast staff was very efficient and made sure we found what we needed.
A nice feature is that it has an elevator, a rare experience for us on this trip.
Our room was spacious and overlooked the courtyard. It was quiet and kept clean by the staff.

Room Tip: Be prepared to be directed, with map in hand, to the hotel's parking location. A fun challenge...
