“Hotel Le Colisee (Best Western) Great find in Paris”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

This was our second stay at Hotel Le Colisee, and the hotel is even better than a few years ago.

First, location: one third of a block from the Champs Elysee, and maybe one third mile from the Arc of Triumph. A nice neighborhood, though to be sure, very in-the-city. You pass real people scurrying to work in the morning, and heading home in the evening carrying briefcases and baguettes.

Second: Despite being in the heart of things, it is quiet if you close the sound-proof windows and use air conditioning. If you like the sounds of Paris, leave them open; there's no heavy traffic noise from the Champs Elysee, just the landmark sounds of the city.

In the evenings, we enjoyed watching the flow of customers at the small restaurant and the bustling cafe across the street-- made us feel like the Jimmy Stewart character in Hitchcock' Rear Window, tapping in vicariously on the goings-on of the neighborhood.

Third, service. Helene at the front desk when we arrived, could not have been more welcoming and helpful (which alas is not always the way in France). Sabine followed through to make sure we got our Best Western points despite a clerical error (not Colisee's) And Francoise, the manager, is to be congratulated on running a place where everything works as expected, everything is spotless, and everyone is friendly and accomodating.

Fourth, cleanliness: I don't think I have ever been in a hotel where the staff wipes down every surface-- doorknobs, table-tops, everything, every day. (I stumbled on that, then snooped to confirm that it was the norm. ) And the chamber help is equally friendly, conveying very clearly that they care, and are not just putting in time.

Fifth, breakfast: If you come on the three-day plan, breakfast is included. If not, it is well worth the outlay as it can carry you through the day. Wonderful eggs; an array of croissants and other "Viennoiserie" and breads and cereals; cheeses and meats; juices; and cafe au lait or whatever you drink. Served by a friendly and accomodating staff.

Finally, security: To get beyond the ground floor in the elevator you need to insert your room card: what better deterrent?

Yes the rooms may seem small .. . but that's by American standards in the suburbs. Hotel Le Colisee is in a French neighborhood, not a built-to-order chain cookie-cutter. We had no problems with luggage. If you really must have lots of room in the room . . .well, either go to a 5-star hotel, or stay home and go to the hotel down the road, and miss Paris.

This is a great little boutique hotel. The room was small but the hotel has a storage room where you can leave your empty luggage during your stay. The staff was very nice and helpful. My sister and I were visiting Paris for the first time and the staff was helpful with directions and advice. There is only one lift but most of the time it was available for us. The hotel is just down a few steps from the Champs Elysees, the Metro station and other transportation. Our room was not on the street and we found it very quiet. the breakfast buffet was very nice and had lots of items to choose from. The only reason I am giving it four instead of five is that a couple times, we stopped back at the hotel around 3 or 3:30 to drop off shopping items or just freshen up before going out again, and the room had not been cleaned yet. We would leave the room around 9AM and put the door hanger out to clean the room. It's not a huge issue but the room should be clean by then.

This is a second stay at this hotel, and I have to say, I have not been disappointed.

Just to get it out of the way, the room is tiny. If you have a big luggage, you're going to have problems moving around the room. Also, the single lift in the hotel is not 100% available. So be prepared to take the stairs if the lift is not working.

Apart from that, this hotel is everything I wanted for a short stay to explore Paris. Just off Champ-Élysées, barely 2 minutes from the Franklin D Roosevelt metro station, the location is ideal. There's also a Monoprix nearby in case you need to get some sundries or toiletries.

The breakfast spread is quite decent, and I really liked the scrambled eggs and the selection of bread. There's also complimentary sodas in the room's minibar which was much appreciated after a hot summer's day out.

This is a real value for money stay in central Paris, and I would definitely stay here again for my next trip.

We stayed here for the final stage of the Tour de France, and were expecting a nightly cacophony from the street, as the hotel is superbly located about 30 metres off the Champs Elysees and FDR metro station. Our fears were totally unfounded: in spite of overlooking two bars and a restaurant, we were not aware if any noise at any time of day. The room was spotlessly clean, the bathroom perfectly adequate for our needs and well supplied with clean towels and toiletries, and internet access was free. The staff were helpful and friendly at all times. We didn't avail ourselves of the breakfast, as there were several excellent places to eat which we were determined to sample.
The value for money aspect of this hotel lies in its fantastic location rather than its affording of any luxury: the convenience of being able to walk easily to the Louvre, Rivoli, Concorde etc, plus the incredibly easy journeys from and to CDG airport made our stay more relaxing than we've previously experienced in other hotels.

My husband and stayed at hotel Le Colisee in late June 2013. We were on our honeymoon and we were very happy with our stay. The room wasn't anything fancy, but we didn't expect that it would be. It was clean and although a bit small (most European rooms we've stayed in are small) it had enough room for all our luggage and still room for us to move around. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were traveling from London and my husband left his wedding band behind. The staff at Colisee was extremely helpful in helping us to recover the ring. I really cannot say enough about the staff! They really made our stay easy and comfortable! The location couldn't have been any better. It's is right off the Champs Elysees and there is a taxi stand at the corner which makes getting a cab very easy. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Perfect location, perfect English, perfectly clean, and perfectly marvelous to be able to walk to Ave. Montaigne to spend the money we saved! Anything you want to know about Paris, just ask one of the ladies up front. TOPS!

Room Tip: Top floor room had a skylight/window we could open.
