Great Locationfrom Levi22
We stayed in room #22 which had two long windows which opened up onto a very nice side street. The room was very small, but clean and comfortable. There is an elevator in the hotel, but I would recommend just putting your luggage in there and going up the stairs if you can, due to the fact it is extremely small. The staff was also very friendly and helpful mostly everyone spoke English.
Clean, convenient, comfortable hotelfrom ccab
The rooms are exceptionally clean, especially the bathrooms. We were expecting that Paris hotels would be tiny but our rooms were plenty large for the two of us and our two rolling duffels. Room #21 had an interior view but was fine -- we were hardly in the room at all anyway. Room #44 faced a side street, and on a Friday morning, was bustling with truck and car traffic. As other people have commented, the elevator was not very big, but not a big deal! We used the stairs most of the time anyway.
In terms of the breakfast, yes, you could probably get a croissant and coffee for less than 10 euros at a cafe, but usually we didn't have just a croissant and coffee for breakfast! Breakfast is served in a cute little "grotto" in the basement -- we filled ourselves with coffee, hot chocolate, croissants, cheese, baguettes, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and juice (not all at once!). I'm sure that if we had paid individually at a cafe for what we usually ate at the hotel breakfast, it would be close to 10 euros or even more.
The location is fantastic -- we never took a cab anywhere in Paris, including to and from the airport. About a block away from the Maubert metro stop, you need only go one stop to transfer to other lines (including the RER line to the airport). The bus also stops a block away, linking you directly to the Gare Lyon (if you take the train to other French/European sites). There were lots of good restaurants within a block or two, so if you came back after a long day of sightseeing, you needn't go far to go back out for dinner.
The hotel staff was also very accomodating, friendly, and informative. We highly recommend the Hotel Abbatial!

The staff was kind and the room was kept very clean. The lobby is beautiful too.
As others have mentioned on this site, the elevator is extremely small but it didn't really matter. It carried the two of us up and we always walked down. The room is on the smaller side compared to American hotel rooms but was fine. The bathroom was a good size but I couldn't quite figure out that half door thing for the shower. The first night I totally soaked the bathroom. Two words: Shower curtain.
Overall, I think this is a great hotel especially for the price. The location alone is worth it.

Great hotel, great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I was most impressed with the staff. I had a problem with my train tickets and the front desk clerk went out of her way to call the train station and was able to solve the problem for me. Very nice, since I speak no French at all. They were also very helpful to another traveler who had lost their luggage.
I would forgo the continental breakfast - 10euros. There are many cafe's and passiteries in the area where you can get great breakfasts for less money.

Top Local Tips for Paris
Arriving at CDG Jump on the blue line train to get into the city. Use the machines at the station instead of standing in a huge queue. Instructions in English and you can pay by cash or card....much quicker!
Allard, 41 rue St-André-des-Arts Great tradtitional bistro in the Latin quarter, food made using all the tasty bits. Book ahead it gets very busy.
Falafel In the Marais region of Paris, very close to the Pompidou centre there is a Falafel resturant which states on it's window "The Best falafel in the world!" and it is true. Be sure to try it if you are near. Located at rue des Rosiers at L'As du Falafel, number 34.
