“Very Nice Hotel In Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

If you enjoy the left bank and especially the 5th and 6th arrondissements, as well as the Ile de la Cite, Notre Dame, etc, then this is one of the best hotels you can stay in where you'll be close to all of those areas. Very nice hotel, very clean, nice views of Notre Dame from some of the rooms, nice sitting lounge and friendly staff. Internet is free in your room, but you can only get it by plugging in the cord to your computer. If you want wifi, you have to pay for it. Would highly recommend this hotel while in Paris.

We went there for 3 days and we had a great time. The room we've booked was very big with huge bathroom. According to the hotel map we have probably booked the biggest room- (premium) which is at the second floor, no.236 but we have paid accordingly (prepare 210 Euro per night, without breakfast). The toiletries in the bathroom are very good, absolutely loved them, especially the body lotion. They should put more every day. The towels are puffy, big and lovely. The bed was huge and very comfy together with 5-6 pillows.
Be aware though of the mini bar: it is very expensive...4.5 Euro per 33 cl water. Go and get your water from the supermarket on the corner- 4 min walk.
The room was cleaned very well every day.
As I said the breakfast wasn't included and we didn't feel like paying 25 Euro per person when there were plenty of bakeries and nice bars on the same road to chose from.

The staff was very friendly and they speak good English and Italian. They have given us all the info we've wanted, pointing us on the map how to get there, where to shop, where to eat , where to have good" macarrons".

The only thing which definitely has annoyed me was the guys who want to take your luggage. They brought our luggage to the room then he was really taking his time in showing us where the TV was, how to use it, then the air conditioning, the lights, etc...I have never experienced that and I didn't like it at all. He should bring your luggage and "bye". You have to tip him, otherwise he won't leave, would stay there with you all night. This thing has repeated when we left the hotel ,although I told him I can take myself luggage. He absolutely grabbed it from my hand and carried all the way to the taxi. Honestly now,Mr. hotel Manager, give them some manner instructions !!

Room Tip: Second floor, not facing the main road.

Dear guest,

I sincerely appreciate your good comments about your stay at the Hotel Meliá Colbert and I thank you for sharing them with other travellers and other potential guest of ours.
I am happy to explain the reason why the bell staff accompanies the guests to the room at arrival. It is not only to help with the luggage but to explain the different aspects of the room like the way we open the door with the magnetic pass, the way the electricity turns on and off, again with the magnetic pass, the way the safety box works, where to find the minibar, the heater/air conditioning system, the Internet connexion, the Pay TV, etc. The guest satisfaction surveys that we run tell us how important this information is to make the guest feel familiar with our facilities. Otherwise, we would get many phone calls at the front desk informing us that this or that does not work. It is all a matter of knowing how.
At departure, the bellboys are instructed to help the guest with luggage due to the fact that there are three steps at the door but most importantly because not all taxi drivers put the luggage in the trunk of the car.
I can guarantee that our three bellboys strive for service and they help the guest at arrival and departure more for passion for service than for tips. I am very sorry that you felt annoyed by their 4 star service but let me assure you that it was absolutely not the goal.

Best regards,
Miriam Peñarroja

Best location for spending time in the Left Bank. Steps away from the Bateaubus on the Seine for going to all the great sites on the river. The room was very elegant and the front desk excellent. There is a great breakfast, and a nice quiet bar area for resting after walking around all day.

My girlfriend and I are new to visiting Paris, so our review comes without comparison, but we really loved this place. The entrance walking up to the front door of the hotel is as beautiful as the photos. The lobby was well lit, nicely decorated, unassuming (for Louis XIV style) and cozy. We were promptly greeted by a smiling member of the hotel staff at the front desk to check in, and as we began talking he seemed as excited about our visit to the city as we were. He handed us a very good tourist map, gave some pointers about how to navigate the city and after a few minutes we were all checked in. We mentioned we wanted to see a cabaret while we were in town to which they were able to provide some detail about the different shows, and even better we were able to buy our tickets right at the front desk. We were told about breakfast at the hotel, but we really wanted to be out in the city's cafes and the breakfast room wasn't extraordinary, so we never went for it. Another member of staff helped us with our bags as we made or way up the two man elevator to our Superior Room on the 2nd floor. I read a few comments on here about the rooms being small with a bad view, but our room was a good size with an amazing view looking out onto the courtyard of the hotel entrance and onto the neighboring building. So I can't comment on the smaller rooms, but I would suggest booking Superior and asking for a room on the upper floors. For windows, the room had these beautiful french doors that opened up onto the courtyard view, this was probably the best feature of the room. The bathroom was great as well, filled with reddish marble and gold colored fittings, perhaps the best was the peculiar misshapen brass fittings in the tub, beautiful, unique and still completely functional. The bed was comfortable and was always freshly made with chocolates on the pillow when we returned from a day out. Finally the location of the hotel was great, a 5 minute walk to the Notre Dame and three different metro stations, not to mention endless cafe's, shops etc. The best is just walking around the neighborhood, which always felt safe at any time of night. The only downside of the hotel was that there was no wireless internet in the rooms, which I'm told is not uncommon for Paris, but none the less it's the only reason why Melia Colbert didn't receive 5 stars. This place doesn't break the piggy bank, but it's not as cheap as it gets either, for us it was just right, a great value and a fantastic stay.

We managed to get this hotel via a great lastminute.com deal for £110 per night. I think the normal price is closer to £160 per night. We also received a free upgrade on the room upon arrival, so what we got fpr 3110 per night (by Paris standards!) was fantastic! The front of house staff were all very friendly, knowledgaeable and spoke good English. The room (a superior) was large for Paris and the bathroom was OK - not amazing, but definiotely OK!
The bed was really comfortable (quite hard, which I like). The location is really second to nonem, 2 minutes from Notre Dame but out of the tourist hubbub.
Highly recommended.

My boyfriend booked this hotel for my birthday, because of its central location. Neither of us had been to Paris before, so we didn't know what to expect, but I had heard from friends that hotels were small and claustrophobic. This could not be less true of the Melia Colbert. Our room was spacious, and exquisitely decorated, and every bit as chic as I had hoped it would be!
The staff at reception were incredibly polite and helpful, offering plenty of sightseeing advice and directions.
I couldn't believe how close were to Notre Dame! The location was fantastic!
The only thing I would say, is that the mattresses were ridiculously hard. Other than that, it was true perfection. Plenty of amenities nearby. I would recommend Le Boteille D'Or Restaurant - So good!
The Hotel made for a magical weekend, and it was utterly breathtaking!

Room Tip: Room 25 was spacious, and had a lovely view of the garden at the front of the hotel. Avoid the groun...

My girlfriend and I came away for her brithday I booked as a surprise and I decided that my research narrowed the choice down the Colbert.

We arrived at the hotel and were met warmly by Antonio. Curious, professional and could not do enough to make sure we knew where bistros, sights and shops were.

He also upgraded us immediately upon hearing that it was my partner's birthday - to the premier suite no less with the balcony overlooking the front garden.

Throughout our stay so far the service has been impeccable.

Pay no heed to the negative feedback for this establishment. It is totally unwarranted.
