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.

... 35 degrees! I was then on a roll and popped into the centre of town on my own (so much easier) and back with the tickets (I have to admit I was very tempted to take a little detour and cruise some of the shops in the Avenue de l'Opera), in time to attempt a trip to see the Eiffel Tower.
This turned into a big fail. We headed across the Seine on foot to catch a RER train to the tower, only to find that the platform was closed, ...
... most quite good, covering hit songs both French and English. And lots of people drinking beer.
Later in the night when I walked down to a store to pick up a few things we needed, the store was full of youngish people, more than hundred standing in line to buy alcohol in various forms. I counted 8 cash register lines with lines of people before them. It is apparently going to be quite a night. We’ll be turning in early to prepare for the next leg of our trip ...
... a bike tour around Paris and towards Chateau de Vincennes a castle and fortress on the outskirts of Paris. Getting the bike was the first struggle. Around two stations rejected my debit card, another two of them had bikes parked but the station were not connected to the network, and others didn’t have enough number of bikes. We walked from Canal St.Martin where we had grabbed salty crepes and where the waiter was soooo slow ...
... br> Our bus was orange
We had 53 people in our group
Our Contiki family was made up 1 Kiwi, 2 Brazilians, 2 Canadians, 1 American, and 47 aussies! Of which 3 others were from Townsville! Townsville people are on the move haha
After a 3 hour drive we arrived at the port ready to board our P&O cruise ship over to France. We drove past the white cliffs of Dover, which I'm sure look much ...
... seats in a freezing church didn't enhance the experience! Music was great. Having a coffee before the concert and a group of students walked passed us. Some of the kids were smoking and so was the teacher....everyone in France smokes....everywhere!!! Chantal met us for dinner and we headed to Le Zimmer apparently a very famous French restaurant. Food and atmosphere divine. I finally had an onion soup (funny they don't seem to put ...
