"Small room in clean & relatively inexpensive hotel"
Very friendly English speaking staff. The hotel was clean and in a good area of town close to 2 metro stations. Very nice breakfast in a beautiful cellar type room. My bedroom was a single and quite small but had everything I needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful hotel experience!"
My hotel experience was wonderful! The location was safe and the room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff even met my dietary requests - going out of their way to provide foods that I could eat. I arrived ill from my previous travels and they allowed me to check in early so that I could rest and recuperate. The […] staff were friendly and helpful and provided cheerful directions so that I could visit various sites in Paris. The room/buffet prices were reasonable. I would highly recommend this hotel to others! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Friendly Service and Very Good Shower"
Second time at this hotel. I returned to it because of a very comfortable and satisfactory stay at the first time, and my expectations were never betrayed. The reception staff is very capable (fluent in English) and friendly. You know how hard it is to get friendly anyone in Paris! The girl who was manning the reception on my arrival had a big smile […] on her face as I opened the door. I was a bit perplexed, did I do something funny? No it was just a smile to greet a customer. After a long ordeal with heavy luggage through RER and subway to get there, my stay at Albion had a very good start. The room is cozy, clean, and comfortable. It faced the street, but the street noise was not really noticeable (not a busy street). One thing remarkable is the shower. It is designed in such a way that no water splashes out of the booth, and the water pressure is strong and the temparature is steady. Again, these are rather rare commodities in Paris. The bed is comfortable, too. The elevator is OK, though a bit slow. The only thing that gives a minus point is the room service. It is basically a delivery service from nearby restaurants. Do not expect anything spectacular. But I will go back to it anytime I have any business in Paris. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An absolute gem!"
I spent just two nights in Paris before heading south where I'm spending a couple of months. I don't need luxury in hotels abroad; I'd rather spend money eating and shopping. What I do want in a hotel is cleanliness, decent (safe) location, close to transportation, and friendly staff. And the France Albion was a winner on all counts! The room - a "Simple" […] single - was tiny, with just a twin bed, but it was clean, the window opened with ease, and the hot water was hot. The elevator worked just fine. The staff were, to a person, cheerful and helpful. The hotel is one very short block away from the Metro (the stop is "Notre Dame de Lorette"), and from there all of Paris is accessible. The neighborhood itself, though, has plenty of restaurants and grocery marts. All this would have been enough for my 5-star rating, but one desk clerk made herself a superstar in my book by agreeing to engage in a long, aggravating phone conversation with the railroad about a piece of baggage I was shipping separately from myself. She never seemed bothered that I'd asked in the first place, and she made it through with aplomb. This was Four Seasons service in a 2-star hotel. I would definitely go back to the France Albion when I'm in Paris again (which I hope is soon). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to lay your head"
Great location, very sweet staff. It is a great place to sleep, not to hang out. Very, very close to Metro. Nice neighborhood with lots of shops and cafes nearby. Walking distance to the Grand Opera House. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location, very close to the subway station. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was small, but considering the usual size of hotel in Paris, it was acceptable. The bathroom was a little bit outdated but clean. We really like its location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent staff and excellent location. I have no idea why this hotel only has 2 stars. The staffs are super nice and are fluent in English. Breakfast and coffee is great. I would definitely go back to this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Suitable hotel for budget conscious travelers"
The hotel is not a luxury hotel by any stretch. It is generally comfortable and suitable for travelers and met our basic needs since we don't spend much time in the hotel. The location is perhaps less than ideal concerning the attractions since most attractions are situated south of the hotel. Two metro stops are close by though, which assists with […] transportation. The hotel staff was generally accomodating but not the most helpful that we have encountered either. In some respects, you get what you pay for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't let that 2 star rating fool you!"
Great location! 10 min walk to Moulin Rouge show, block away from Metro station, and right next to a supermarket! What else do you need?Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a room to sleep in after exploring Paris"
Small room but to be expected in Paris. Very clean and friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good value for money"
Good value for money/size & furnishing of room above average for Paris especially given price. (I stayed in room 35). Bus 67 gets you to the Louvre, Hotel de Ville, near Notre Dame in 15 minutes; near Sacre Couer & OperaGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for what it is"
I would have given this place all fives except that when I was saying there, their wifi went down and all guests had to congregate in the lobby to use a local hotspot. Needless to say, for those of us who were on skype with loved ones and or business calls, this was not a pleasant experience. Also, the beds are VERY firm (depending on if you like that […] it can be a pus or minus) On to the Pros: 1) You should buy the breakfast, it's worth it. 2) Great location, it's about a three minute walk to the metro and one minute from a grocery store. 3) Helpful staff. 4) Air conditioning! 5) Modestly priced.

"Perfect in Paris"
Great location, great staff, great stay! The only downside is the walls are a little thin and you can easily hear things in the hallway but it wasn't a problem for me. I hope to definitely be back to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Budget Hotel fairly close to sights!"

"Great Hotel near the grand magazins."
The best 2 star hotel I've ever been in Paris. Compare to the other 2 star hotels in Paris this Hotel should get 4 stars. Lafayette 10 min by walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"walking distance to La Fayette"
Love the place, very close to the Metro station, quiet and having a carrefore nearby!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small, but convenient and comfortable"
The hotel is very convenient and is close to the subway line. It is about a 15-minute walk to the Roissy Bus to the Airport. I'm not sure why it's 2 stars, but compared to other hotels in Paris, I thought it was very decent. The rooms are small, but that's very common in Europe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Hotel France Albion is a great place to stay."
Great staff, great location. Staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke Engilsh readily. Two Metro stops within a short walk from the hotel made seeing the entire city of Paris very easy. Breakfast was great and cost only 13 Euros. We would stay definitely stay at the Albion again (even though my wife never thought she would find a two star hotel a […] cceptable).

"Close to street merchants and Palais Garnier"
Our 4th stay at the Albion. Next street over has many vendors for cheeses, patisseries, fruits/vegetables. Very close to 3 Metro Stops/2 Metro lines and to Paris Opera House (Palais Garnier) and shopping (Galeries Lafayette). Nice neighborhood of families with young children, as we see them going to school in the mornings. We will choose Hotel France […] Albion again for our next Paris Opera Ballet event.

"Nice hotel in Paris"
The Hotel France Albion is a nice hotel in a fairly good location. It is about 20 minutes walk from both Gare du Nord and Gare Saint-Lazare train stations. It takes about a half an hour to walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame, etc. The hotel itself is pretty nice, though the rooms are looking a little dated and could use some sprucing up (rust on radiator […] in bathroom, etc.). But for the price, you can't really beat it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good on Average"
The hotel room was very clean and comfortable though a bit on the small side. The location was great, especially for the price. Overall, I had a good experience staying here. However, one of the hotel staff was not so nice but maybe that is because I do not speak French.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice but a little pricy"

"Hotel France Albion"
Nice hotel, well located. Close to two Metro stations. Only downside, is the road outside is busy all night so can be noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel France Albion Thank you for your comment! Notre Dame de Lorette Street is a one way street but if you prefer a quiet room, next time book the superior double room facing the courtyard.
Situated relatively close to the Opera (so good for the Charles de Gaulle airport shuttle bus) and only a short walk to Montmartre. Nearest metro stop a couple of minutes away too. The staff were helpful and bilingual (a plus for this English speaker), with someone always on the front desk regardless of how late the hour. The buffet breakfast, although […] extra to the bill, was perfectly adequate. With quite a wide range of choice running from cereals, to scrambled eggs and bacon. All served in a rather lovely repurposed cellar. My room was cleaned every day, with fresh toiletries added as and when I needed. Overall, I can't fault it for the price.

"4-day trip in Jul 2014"
Excellent hotel for its price. Will certainly stay there again. Clean n spacious room with ensuite. Room looks like new. Very friendly n helpful staff. Metro 200m away. Bustling neighbourhood but quiet at night. Excellent cafe round the corner that serves French food at 12-15 € lunch n 20-25 € dinner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff were extremely helpful and spoke good English. Location is very convenient, near 3 metro stations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cosy neighbourhood & location!"
Hotel was located a short metro ride from the Eurostar, very handy for getting around & situated in a cosy neighbourhood with cafes and shops nearby. Room was small but served its purpose as we were mostly out during the day, did not use their services. Some parts of the bathroom were little worn but overall a fine stay. Pleasant smiling staff - would […] recommend the hotel to friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A nice and laid back hotel. We stayed for 5 nights and it had everything we needed. 14 euro to the Eiffel Tower in a taxi or a metro station is located at the end of the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly, well run budget accommodations"
I got what is for Paris an excellent deal on this pleasant, very well run two star hotel, paying under $130 Canadian per night, a rate which included their buffet breakfast. Predictably, and as reviews indicated, the rooms were minute. But my single bed was comfortable, and they had managed to furnish it and the bathroom in a very efficient and functional […] way. This has not been my experience in other Paris hotels, where it was at times difficult to brush one's teeth, or take a shower without flooding the toilet! Really nicely done and staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. I hadn't stayed in the 9th before and though I am not a Montmartre and Pigalle fan, too cheesy for me, the nontourist area around the hotel was lovely, the Metro very close, and many conveniences, including an excellent Carousel supermarket right across the street. Buffet breakfast was nice but not gourmet but very handy that it was included. Staff set me up with the 29 Euro shuttle to the airport, which was exceptionally convenient and much less expensive than a taxi. I would recommend this for travellers looking for a reasonable price with very professional and considerate staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great price and location"
Room was a bit tiny, but it was only for a one night stay. Overall; the prices are very decent and the location is amazing, central and close to everything walking distance! Early in the morning we heard alot of street noise but other than that, we slept very well. Rooms are clean, and the staff are very accommodating. Would recommend for anyone on […] a tight budget and wants to stay close to restaurants, bars and shopping! Steps away from Metro system!Would return :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean, Safe and Comfortable Room"
Good choice for travelling from/to Paris North/East Train station. Close to several METRO stations, can reach places of interest very conveniently. The room is quiet, nice and comfortable. A lot of choices for restaurant, supermarkets and grocery shops.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The cleaning staff broke one of my cosmetics and just left the pieces on the sink. The place probably once was great but it really is quite crumbly. It's not a bad place, but not amazing and I was excited to use the tub - but decided against it after seeing the shower curtain with black mold on the bottom...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Location in Paris!"
This hotel is a hidden gem in a great location in Paris! It is within walking distance of Sacre Coeur cathdral, Moulin Rouge and many wonderful restaurants, cafes and bars in a safe area of Paris. It is also about a 40 minute walk to Le Louvre. The hotel itself is very small but quaint. The room had a single bed with a small bathroom. However, since […] I was travelling alone, this was more than adequate. It was very clean and comfortable. The cost was very competitive based on other hotels in the area. One nice feature was free wi-fi access! While it does have a bandwidth limit, you can reconnect right away. The hotel staff were excellent! Henri was particularly helpful with recommendations on what to do in the immediate area and beyond. The staff speak English very well and were willing to extend themselves. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a great location at a affordable price. Unless you are looking for high end accommodations, this hotel would be a great choice.

"Everything you would want or need for budget break"
Stayed with my daughter 11 - 15 May for concert at Olympia. Nice friendly little place close to metro and 42 bus route so you can easily get from gard de nord and this also takes you to most landmarks including eiffel tower. Clean and compact hotel, helpful staff, comfy beds, toiletries provided and ample towels. Henri knows his landmarks too and happy […] to chat. Daughter even used laundrette just at the bottom of the street so could have actually packed less but our two large bags had no problem fitting in room and storage also more than adequate. Downside was cost for breakfast so grabbed food from bakery around corner. Concert ended up postponed but when we get a new date will see if rooms are free here again as everthing we needed close by.
