Reviewed October 10, 2012

We spent three nights in a very comfortable room on the top floor of the original building. Our windows looked over old, tiled roofs. Our bathroom and bedroom had massive, angled, ancient wooden beams which gave the rooms lots of character. The room fitout was modern and everything functioned well and was spotlessly clean. The buffet breakfast was €12.50 per person but it was good value because of the large range of good quality ingredients on offer. Coffee was from a Nescafé machine but the quality of the coffee was better than you would get from 90% of French cafes. The hotel is in a very good location and the staff were very helpful.

Dear Hotel Guest,

We are happy with your kind words here on Tripadvisor.

As you mentioned the rooms are a mix of old, we keep some parts (stairs, wood beams, ...) and contemporary decor, this gives the special character of our Hotel.
We also thank you for your compliments about our breakfast.

It would be a pleasure to welcome you back at Hotel Le Colombier.

Kind Regards

This hotel is right in the middle of the historic area so the location is great. We were there for 2 nights and were put in the 'new' building which is across the back alley from the main hotel. bad part was that we were on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator in that building. The 2 rooms we were in are totally modern inside, all new bathrooms and electrical, 2 high quality flat screens.
I say 2 rooms because we asked to be moved after the 1st night, our first room was the back room on the top floor and has attic sloping ceilings which are great for head banging so we opted to move. The front desk was very helpful and didn't seem surprised so we move to the front room on the same floor and it was like night and day. The second room was so much more spacious and open (be aware that discussing things with night front desk person can be challenging, she is super friendly but English challenged so you have roll with it)

I thought it was decent value, ($175 euros for Fri or Sat, $125 euros rest of week)

Parking is a bit of a pain (see other reviews) but location is A+, for 2 nights this hotel was very nice and we would stay there again

Room Tip: not sure it will work but ask for a nice view

Dear Hotel Guests,

Thank you for take time to share your impressions.

The particulary of our house is that the rooms are all different from each other. So we can offer pretty romantic rooms on the attic, also larger rooms, or rooms with elevator access.

Of course, our staff is listening to the wishes of our customers.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcome you another time at Le Colombier.

Sincerely yours

Very corporate chic/trendy decoration, with unique touches to the rooms, but they leave something to be desired in the way of basic equipment. Our room had tiny bedside lamps that were useless for reading in bed, and it had no desk or functioning table. We were lucky enough to find parking just outside the hotel. Location is very good, right at edge of little Venice and old city. Staff members were cool and not particularly helpful. Breakfast was NOT free and very disappointing--nescafe from a machine for coffee. On the whole, we thought it was overpriced for what it offered.

Our hotel in Colmar was very clean and well-located. Unfortunately, the desk staff was not forthcoming with good recommendations for places to eat for dinner. Any time that we asked for help, we would receive mumbled responses to our requests. I would not say that this hotel is especially friendly. Breakfast was fine, although very crowded when we chose to partake. Our problem, not theirs.

Parking is a huge issue. If you are not lucky enough to snag a place in the free parking section of Colmar near the hotel, you will pay dearly until a space opens up near to the hotel.

A suggestion: Familiarize the staff with good restaurants in the area. Allow them to make suggestions.

Very pleasant hotel in the Little Venice area of Colmar. Rooms were good quality and well equipped. Bathrooms were small but well well finished.

Service was variable. When we arrived and asked about parking we were met with the proverbial Gallic shrug - if we didn't book, it wasn't their concern. After 15 minutes driving round Colmar, I eventually found somewhere 600 metres from the hotel.

Prices are quite high. Can't comment on breakfast as we eat somewhere else .

We stayed 2 nights in that very central hôtel. First night we slept (or at least, tried to) in room #12. The room was small, the bed even smaller, and the noise insulation bad enough so I could hear cars passing on the street cobbles all night long. In the morning , I asked if we could change of room. The request was kindly accepted and we were moved to room 15. A much larger room, overlooking the courtyard. Very peaceful. We had 2 breakfasts at the hotel : very basic buffet , with no variation 1 day to the next.
So, to sum up : go to this hotel for the location and staff friendliness. Forget about the breakfast and make sure to pick the right room !

Dear Sir,

We thank you very much to give us your impressions after your stay at Le Colombier.

With pleasure we inform you that all our rooms are with beds for 2 persons but of different sizes, in the room 12 per example there is a 140 cm large bed (the french strandard size), room 12 is also a standard room...
But anyway, we can give you another room which was at your convenience and we are delighted about it.

The team really enjoyed your special mention.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcome you another time at Le Colombier.

We chose Colmar as our first night stop on the way from Calais to Italy. Great location on the main cobbled thoroughfare in the LIttle Venice area of Colmar. Ideally located to walk all around the town and explore. There are some free parking spaces on the street and others only charge during daytime hours.

The hotel is very modern and contemporary inside with some quirky parts. We opened our bedroom door to find a wooden spiral staircase up to our room which was in the roof space. The room was lovely with a very modern bathroom featuring a great shower as the centre piece. You do have to use a metal step to step up into the shower. Everything was clean and felt quite new. It was great to have a kettle and tea/coffee making facilities but unfortunately no milk provided. Nice to have real glasses for drinks from the fridge if needed

There are lots of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance both by the bridge over the canal and beyond into a main square.

We did not try breakfast as we were en route to Italy and wanted to get off early.

Would recommend this hotel but would advise anyone with mobility problems to check which room you are allocated as the room we had (No.28) could prove difficult for some people with the spiral staircase.

Room Tip: Room 28 in the roof space may not be suitable for those with mobility problems due to spiral stairca...

Dear Guests,


Thank you for your positive comments.

The lovely and unique room you had (n°28) is only available by stairs, but the main part of our room is accessible by lift. We invite the people with mobility problem just to ask for a room with elevator.

Le Colombier is very central located in the charming town, so you can find in short distance good restaurants, alos go shopping and of course park your car before.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcome you another time in our nice Colombier.

Sincerely yours
