Nice non-chain hotel with a pool in the backyard. Yery close to the station, good access. 300m from the city centre, 200m from university. Nice french bar almost next door.
DAnger to leave the key when you go out at night - the access code is printed on the back, so no re-entry without that code
the swimming pool and staff
the standard of air conditioning was not accceptable
Good location; helpful staff; comfortable room. Good food.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Air conditioned rooms. Pool area. Local parking availability.
Shower handset but no shower screen or curtain leading to small floods. The hotel restaurent was closed during our stay. Would have liked a kettle & crockery, but now understand these are not the norm.
Close to the Cathedral. Clean.
Very soft bed matress. Small room for 2. Small shower. Decoration very plain. Motel 6 feel.
Food was very good
Swimming pool was closed for cleaning on the night we stayed.
Desk staff very cooperative when asked for a different room. Bar staff attentive and helpful as were the room staff. onvenient parking outside hotel.
The rating of rooms was i feel over rated and the price for what where basic facilities was not proportionate. The room had no shower rail or curtain which made showering somewhat difficult. The booking page made a point of mentioning that the hotel was near the old part of Albi but did not mention it was opposite the railway station
The proximity to the train station was important to me. I was able to check in very early (9am) as I arrived in Albi at 8am. Staff were very helpful as well.The pool was a big bonus as I walked for miles all day in extremely high heat. (mind you, it was chilly water - perhaps a solar blanket?)
Clean and basic but could use a decorating "lift". Also, only one towel - I had to ask for an extra to use at the pool.
The hotel was easy to find, with good friendly staff.
Car Parking was expensive, the pool was not as clean as I would have hoped, the room was "tired".
A stay at Grand Hôtel d'Orleans places you in the heart of Albi, within a 15-minute walk of Albi Old Town and Albi Cathedral. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and multilingual staff. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
