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.
