Beautiful hotel a stones-throw from the cityPosted Oct 16, 2013
Pros: The lift was the centrepiece for me but the whole hotel was great. The staff, the design, the location.
Cons: It's rare that I say this, but I don't think anything could be improved.
Location: Quiet location, a stones-throw from the metro and a busy cafe/restaurant area.
Arrived for a single evening before a conference the following day. The hotel is located down a narrow road in what's practically its own cul-de-sac. As such, it's really quiet but a few minutes walk from the bustling city and nearest metro. The room was beautifully decorated, clean, warm and unlike anywhere I've stayed before. The lift was the aspect I'll remember the most. It was almost an antique and a pleasure to use. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the reception is open 24 hours; perfect for late evening strolls. The breakfast was just the trick; continental with copious amounts of coffee. Would I recommend? Yes. Would I stay again? Definitely.

Hotel Alba OperaPosted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: The position was ideal for our requirements. Room was comfortable and clean. We had a larger room on top floor with view of rooftop skyline.
Cons: Not sure what could be improved. We did not eat in hotel so cannot comment on that and everything else was fine.
Location: Location is 10-15mins from Gare du Nord in Opera district (9thAr) walking distance to Montmartre (20mins uphill!) easy access to 4 Metro stations.
Perfect choice of position 10-15mins walk from Gare du Nord (Eurostar) in a quiet cul de sac set back from road. Very nice local suburb with many Bistros, Brasseries, Cafe's for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a drink. opera is an art district so many different interesting small individual shops. We walked to Montmartre (20mins) and also you can walk to main department stores Galleries Lafayette & Printemps. There are four Metro stations within easy access which take you to all areas of Paris without having to change trains. For example to the Louvres or Jardins Tuilleries was just 6 stops from Cadet Metro which is 10mins walk from hotel. Notre dame & Bastille areas were another 5 stops further on. Hotel staff warned about pickpockets on the Metro but we saw no evidence of this problem. Hotel staff were very pleasant and spoke English well if you require.Would definitely stay again.Warning - there are six floors and lift is extremely small so will only take two people at a time without luggage!

When it's super cool, who needs super fancy?Posted Nov 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
The theme is awesome and the staff exceptionally helpful and friendly. Could use a bit of renovation but who cares when the place is super cool, friendly, in a great neighborhood and clean,clean,clean! Very affordable too...
Huge potentialPosted Nov 13, 2012 on Hotels.com
We used this for a long weekend and loved it for the most part. It seems like a very nice, family-owned hotel that's a breath of fresh air from identikit chain hotels. HOWEVER, they seem to be going through a renovation process that took us by surprise and that we could have done without the drilling and other noises during an afternoon nap. Also, the staircase carpets appear to be in the process of being replaced. Otherwise, this is a great little find and once these things will be ironed out, there's no reason to think flawless service can be expected there. The staff are friewndly, the area is nice, and the location is convenient.

Comfortable hotel for a short family breakPosted Nov 1, 2012
Pros: Location was great. Very friendly and plenty of room in the junior suite for a family of four.
Cons: The kitchenette wasn't well resourced.
Location: Great location - easy walk from Gare du Nord and quiet.
Friendly, quirky hotel. Junior suite was good for a family of four with room to spread out, although the kitchenette didn't have any cutlery/crockery apart from 4 glasses. Very easy to get to from Gard du Nord. The children loved the old lift!

Decent HotelPosted Nov 1, 2012 on Hotels.com
Nice hotel for a long weekend getaway. Prices are decent and the hotel is conveniently located between four metro stations. The hotel does have a old feeling to it, but its quite pleasant once you give it a chance. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The shower was very small, but the room in general was quite large. Unfortunately, the rooms were not sound proof, so we could hear footsteps and voices as people climbed up the stairs - quite annoying when you are trying to sleep.
