We arrived to Paris safe and sound! It was a great flight which included multicolor ceiling lighting and adorable babies who kept me very entertained. They were better behaved than me! I was a little restless at times but overall it went by fairly fast and now…NOW WE ARE IN SUNNY PARIS!!!
We landed too early to check-in to our hotel …
I'm writing now sitting outside on the sidewalk - again, but this time on Rue de Rivoli, at a Brasserie, having a late lunch of Croque-Madame and an Edelweiss beer, desperate to get out of the very hot sun. It's busy, with lots of noisy traffic on Rue de Rivoli at the statue of Ste-Jeanne-d'Arc, just next to the Louvre. Noisy, bustling, slightly …
Saturday, August 15th, is a religious holiday in France, The Assumption of Mary (L'Assomption), but no problem where the tourist trade is concerned. The day began hot & sunny and stayed that way. We got breakfast again at the patisserie one street over (quiche) and bought a couple of treats for later. We used the HOHO bus all day to get to …
The next day, Friday, August 14th, was our 5th wedding anniversary, and the plan all along was to go and see the Chateau de Versailles. The morning was very beautiful, and we started our day off with quiche for breakfast from around the corner (and a couple of mini pain au chocolate each!). From the hotel we walked to Haussman …
We were excited to be heading to Paris, the last leg of our vacation. There were a couple of things we wanted to see while enroute to Paris, but before we left the Arras area, we wanted to see Vimy Ridge one more time, and take another drive through Neuville Saint-Vaast. John wanted to find the approximate location of a Chateau in the town that his …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel France Albion Paris
Agree with positive reviews
I found a three nights for the price of two deal on ---- and was a bit worried, but I'm happy to report that the reviews on this page were reliable. It's a no-frills moderate hotel, but in such an expensive city, a great value. Our room was clean, recently renovated, and small only by American standards. Bathroom was great. Street was reasonably quiet and air conditioning worked. Breakfast is fairly generous and the cellar room was cool looking. The staff spoke English and were very helpful. The website photos accurately represent the place.
My sister and I stayed here for three nights in August 2005 and found the France Albion to be pleasant, but not as great as many of the reviews here had led me to expect.
Considering this is a 2 * it is excellent. Rooms are comfortable and very clean, bathrooms well appointed with powerful showers. Air conditioning works well which is essential in the Paris heat. Hotel is within easy walking distance of Galeries Lafeyette and Printemps so we shopped til we dropped. It is also within a 15 minute walk (in heels) from Gard du Nord so no need to wait in the huge taxi queue when you arrive on Eurostar. Breakfast is very nice but I would not have paid 12 euros for it (see our 1 complaint). We only have 1 complaint, on departure the hotel tried to charge for breakfast which was included in our Eurostar package, they did this not on check out but by running down the street after us after we had checked out. This was after we had spent 35 mins in our room waiting for a taxi that reception had forgotten to order. We were not impressed by this but even though this happened we would happily recommend the hotel to others as it was excellent value and so easy for all the sites, the shops and the metro. It is far better than your average 2*.
With my husband I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, 21-24 July 2005. It absolutely is a lovely hotel. Conveniently located in the 9th arrondissement, a 10 minutes walk to Montmartre (18 arondissement) and to 'les grand magasins' and the Opera.
Just arrived back from a week's stay at Hotel France Albion in Paris. I enjoyed the hotel. The reception was friendly and most spoke excellent English.
My wife and I (both in our 60's) together with two married friends (also in their 60's) stayed at this hotel in April 2005. It really cannot be faulted. The bedrooms were clean and well equipped (No tea/coffee facilities but the bar right next door is super) and the en-suite bathrooms were extremely clean.
Pleasant little hotel
Took my niece here last year to celebrate the end of school. We liked it. Located on a reasonably quiet street (there are a couple of clubs but they looked respectable) and near a metro. Rooms are strangely English in decor - a kind of Laura Ashley country cottage feel, complete with beams! (on the top floor), but very clean and neat. Good bathroom for the price. A big plus is the air conditioning, quite unusual in this price range and a big plus in mid-summer. My only minus point would be the breakfast - served in a rather dingy room by a very daffy girl who forgot everything - much better to head out for some croissants and a bucket of cafe au lait on a cafe terrace...
Great place to stay in Paris
The Hotel France Albion served me and my wife very well. We stayed there for 5 days. It is extremely clean and well taken care of. The staff could not be nicer. All of them were great english speakers and also good french teachers. Everything was recently remodeled and the location is great! The rooms were nice/warm and comfortable. It is located right in between two metro stations, which makes it extremely easy and convenient to get in, out and around. It is also surrounded by small market places with good wine and fresh fruits for the end of the day. We had a great time there and highly recommend Hotel France Albion for anyone looking into a good time in Paris for a very reasonable price.
Greate & lovely place
Me & my husband were staying in this hotel for four nights in March and were very pleased with the room and service. It is very clean and comfortable, the bathroom was the best we've ever seen in hotels we stayed in. The breakfast is very good as well and consist of a lot of choices: breads, croissants, cheese, ham, bacon, potatoes, eggs, omelets, coffee, etc.
The hotel is very close to all major attractions. 10 minutes walk to Opera Garnier, 20 min. to Louvre, 10 min. from Moulin Rouge. If you don't like to walk there is a metro station just seconds away from the hotel. The staff is very nice and helpful, trying to make your stay most pleasant.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again.
My wife and I just returned from Paris where we spent our last two nights at the Hotel France Albion. We were referred to this hotel by a competitior hotel close by, and were very satisfied with every aspect of the hotel. The receptionist went out of her way to fulfil every request. The room was great, and due to the late summer heat in Paris this year, the air conditioning was essential. We has previously stayed at another hotel in the area without air conditioning, and trying to sleep in a hot room with just a fan to blow the hot air around just dosen't suffice.
