Bronze St. James Albany

202 Rue de Rivoli
Paris 75001

Area: City Centre

St. James Albany is a cheaper alternative for those wanting to stay in the heart of Paris' bustling tourist and cultural district. We would rather set up base in a more quiet and remote part of town, but we understand many prefer the convenience and buzz of being in the middle of it all. Throngs of tourists amble past the hotel's front doors and Paris' museums and famous attractions are within a short walk.

The common areas and outdoor spaces of this property are similar to its more pricey hotel neighbors where you'll see a difference is in the 184 rooms' decor. The Standard rooms are outfitted with simple and somewhat dated furnishings and features. Superior rooms are a tad better in appearance and suites begin to impress, but then room rates start to approach other more upscale accommodations. Still, rooms are clean, staff is friendly and the location is as central as you can get.

The hotel's lower-level gym with light parquet floors surprised us with a decent offering of Life Fitness cardio equipment, a Concept 2 rowing machine, and a small dumbbell set. It's not fantastic, but having any gym at this price-point in this neighborhood deserves recognition.

St. James' pool is more "face" than function, it's nice to look at, but difficult to accrue any meaningful yardage within. We roughly measured the rectangle at 17 yards so desperate swimmers could stroke a few laps to/fro if necessary.

Joggers should head out to the paths along the River Seine.
