The Hotel Prince Albert Louvre is a somewhat affordable two-star hotel in a five-star neighborhood, just a few blocks from the Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries.
Pros: Swanky lobby. Clean, well-equipped rooms. Chic neighborhood.
Cons: Rooms are pretty small. Rates sometimes quite high.
The glitzy lobby of the two-star Hotel Prince Albert Louvre sets an impressive scene, with Egyptian murals, gold painted details, chandeliers, and an exotic assortment of antiques. It fits right into its glitzy neighborhood, which includes the Marché St-Honoré, the Louvre and the Jardin des Tuileries.
Most of its 30 rooms, however, are quite a bit simpler, with sponge painted walls, green carpets, and inoffensive furniture. The double and triple rooms are air conditioned, and fans are available in single rooms. All are equipped with a TV, minibar, telephone and free Wi-Fi (throughout the hotel). Most of the bathrooms, on the other hand, are nice and new, with tiled showers or bathtubs.
We found the hotel’s cheapest rooms to be quite small, and those facing the interior courtyard to be dark. If, like us, you like a little light and fresh air in the morning, ask for a room on the street.
With doubles typically ranging between €120-160, rooms at the Prince Albert Louvre are not really “cheap.” However, we think it still merits some cheapo appreciation, given its incredibly central and chic location, and because rates sometimes dip down even further.
Breakfast is available for €10.
