Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Colbert - Paris
Loved this hotel
I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in May 2004 and absolutely loved it. The location was fantastic with Notre Dame literally at the end of the cobbled street and there were a variety of lovely Parisien cafes nearby. The hotel itself was very chic. A beautifully converted mansion house which drew admiring glances from passers by. Our bedroom was very pretty with a lovely view of the flowered courtyard from the french windows in the small but perfectly formed bathroom. The staff could not have been more helpful. From advice on local tours to breaking into my luggage after leaving the keys to my suitcase at home!! Although the night porter was not as knowledgeable, as we discovered when trying to get a drink in the bar one evening! We settled for a drink from the mini bar in our room instead! The only complaint I would have about my stay would be breakfast. The breakfast room was busy with only one poor woman running round trying to serve everyone. Within half an hour the majority of bread and hot food had gone and was not replenished. After that we ordered room service which proved to be more successful.
Despite that I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. It's a beautiful place in a beautiful location.
Oasis of calm & cutness in touristy latin quarter
I booked a couple of nights at Melia Colbert, mostly due to reviews here at tripadvisor. Our stay was during June 2004.
It's 1 block away from Pont au Double which is adjacent to Cathedral du Notre Dame. The north side of the hotel has views of the Cathedral.
Basically, a dream location.
The reviews were accurate. It's a nice small hotel off in a quiet corner of touristy latin quarter. The hotel was renovated a few years ago, but the decor is slightly scruffed up. Nevertheless, it was still comfortable though the rooms are small relative to American standards. The bathroom is small but serviceable. It's done in red marble throughout. The breakfast buffet is above average, it has provincial specialities like local cheese, salamis, etc. Our booking included the buffet, otherwise it's 20 euros which is too much.
The front desk during the daytime is very helpful. I used them to get restaurant reservations. The night time person is less knowledgeable.
Small but very cute is an accurate description of the entire hotel. Probably one of the best places in the busy 5th arrondissemont.
A dream hotel
We just returned from a long weekend in Paris staying at the Colbert -- what a treat it is to stay there. The location combined with the charming, immaculate rooms and warm staff make this my favorite place to stay in Paris. The staff is top notch -- each recommendation we got whether for a local florist or a restaurant was just right. Breakfast buffet is excellent, although the price is a bit high. You're better off going around the corner to the Cafe Panis where you can sit outside and watch the world go by. If you have the chance to stay at the Colbert, do it. It's worth the few extra dollars and you won't be sorry.
My first visit to Paris
I went to Paris with my neice from Warminster,Pa. I absolutely love the Melia Colbert Hotel Delightful surroundings, courteous people, great breakfast buffet amd beautiful, clean rooms. Would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful Hotel Melia Colbert
My husband and I loved the Melia Colbert. It is so pretty from the street that we saw people stopping to stare at the hotel. The room and the public areas are well decorated and clean. The breakfast was very good and the breakfast room was pretty. The hotel is located directly across from Notre Dame and is very central to most sights. The reception hosts were very helpful. The only negative to the hotel is the noise from garbage trucks that go by early every morning. We would definately recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again ourselves. It is a very classy hotel!
Not Just Any Old Hotel!!
This is a very special place! The location could NOT be any better! The staff is friendly and prof essional. You feel as though you are living in Paris.The breakfast is a bit pricey but good. I would most definitely stay here again.
Great Hotel Great location
We went to Paris and stayed here in
March 2004. We loved everything about this hotel. The location is perfect - close to Notre Dame, ST Chapelle, Flower market,etc. There is a metro station within walking distance. The hotel itself is on a quiet side street - we slept with the windows open without any problems. The rooms are a little small but very nice. The bathrooms are great! The staff was very friendly and spole english well. We did not eat at the hotel so I cannot c omment on the breakfast. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Paris.
Quaint, Clean and Reasonable
I recently took my mother on her first trip to Paris and our first two nights (and subsequently a third night) were booked (via Orbitz) at the Melia Colbert hotel located across the Seine from Notre Dame in Saint Germain. The hotel was exactly as depicted in pictures on the web site and lived up to its four star rating. The staff were professional and helpful and Gabrielle is especially wonderful! I would recommend it highly.
Lovely small hotel.
A lovely little hotel with an absolutely teriffic location - 100m from Notre Dame, 100m from the great restaurants and nite life, 50m from the subway that will take you anywhere in Paris for 1,30 Euros. Rooms were not giant, but very comfortable and well equipted. Very nice bathrooms.
Comfortable lounge with English newspapers. Nice breakfast buffet, but expensive (24 Euros). English speaking staff that is very friendly and helpful. If you are in a hurry, avoid the guy at night, he loves to talk and has an opinion about everything. But then again, so do . One other tip on Paris in general - bring lots of money.
Great Place to Stay!!!
This was a great place to stay in Paris!! Located across the bridge from the Notre Dame and Ile-Saint Louis, and just a couple of blocks from the Saint Michel/Saint Germain restaurant district. Here's reasons to stay there: 1) Quiet street with no parking (ie no cars up on the curb) 2) Walking distance to everything, Notre Dame, St. Germain, Hotel de Ville, Louvre, etc. 3) Cozy rooms but comfortable rooms (typical of Paris) 4) helpful staff 5) Lovely flowered entry 6) Relaxing and enjoyable.
If possible ask for room overlooking front courtyard, as they are set back from the street a little more. This hotel is a little pricier than others, but worth it for the atmosphere and location.

An amazing day and what a way to end the tour. We left Bordeaux by high speed train (first class) and arrived in Paris three and a half hours later. The trip was scenic- some amazing castles poking out of thick bush but of course no time for photos as train going at 300 kms a hour!! On arrival in Paris we were picked up by a bus and immediately taken to The Louvre. Wow! It was an incredible building with its palatial architecture ...
... Matre so we were near the train station for the Eurostar in the morning. We spent the afternoon wandering the tiny streets filled with stalls, cafes, artists etc. Climbed jet more steeps go Sacre Coeure which was beautiful, light and bright in contrast to Notre Same. Finally we took the metro back to the Eiffel Tower for a bit before climbing our five floors of spiral stairs to collapse in our mezzanine floor ...
... area we are in. It's the "richy" area, full of beautiful buildings, pebbled streets, and just everything you think Paris is, and more. The campus is cute, the entrance is gated, with an archway and a walkway with benches, tables and chairs. It's cozy (too bad it's Winter!). We got all signed in and got our room assigned Room 204. The very dorm room where I will dorming for the first time. Sleeping in a twin bed (unfortunately) and the ...

Inside the cathedral touched the base of one of the columns and I started to cry! I became so emotional that I sat down at one of the little side chapels and just cried; not sure how or long
or why I was overcome with such emotion; but I just let it flow. I sat at that chapel used for prayer for about 90 minutes, meditating, pulling myself together; etc. Then I walked toward ...
Traveling to Europe and arriving at 8:30 am made for quite a long day(s). And of course, it wouldn't be complete without some sort of difficulty. My flight from Toronto was excellent, I probably got at least 4 hours of sleep and the wine was free, always good. I arrived in Paris on time and without any problems at the airport. Made the trek to the RER to catch a train into the city where I was to meet Joris (my cousin) at Gare du ...
