Part of the Spanish-owned Meliá Collection since December 2021, this handsome boutique hotel in the heart of Paris rises to five floors with 39 contemporary rooms and suites set around a charming courtyard café. The style is sophisticated and enhanced by abundant and enchanting reproductions of high society portraits and scenes painted by the Valencia-born Impressionist Joaquín Sorolla. The writer Simone de Beauvoir lived here and the proximity to the Sorbonne university, Notre-Dame cathedral and the haunts of Left Bank artists makes Maison Colbert an ideal base for a culture-seeking short break. While facilities are limited, with no spa, fitness centre or restaurant for dinner, the hotel's diligent staff, decent breakfast and pampering rooms create a memorable five-star sanctuary.



The French author and feminist pioneer Simone de Beauvoir (1908-86) lived in this building, penning two landmark works, The Second Sex and The Mandarins.

You're minutes from the River Seine and Notre-Dame Cathedral to the north, and the Panthéon and Luxembourg Gardens to the south.
By plane: flights from London or Manchester to Paris Charles De Gaulle take 1 hour 15 minutes and the hotel is 40-minutes' drive.
By train: Eurostar from London to Paris Gare du Nord takes 2 hours 20 minutes and the hotel is a 20-minute drive.
