“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Good location if you are seeking a more Parisian experience, which we were. Rather like staying in a private house (albeit a very very big one!) rather than an anonymous international chain hotel. Comfortable beds. Very clean with good quality amenities. Breakfast satisfying. Convenient for the métro ( 3 minutes away) plenty of local brasseries, patisseries, bars and restaurants within a stroll. Equally you are a very short walk from Arc de Triomphe, Les Champs Élysées, Trocadero, the Seine and Eiffel Tower.

Staff are so very friendly, multilingual, and nothing too much trouble, they clearly enjoy taking care of their guests. We had prompt responses to each of our emails about the métro, theatre and dining options. This is what differentiates one hotel from another, meliá Alexander is a winner here as far as I am concerned.
Bedrooms are small, normal for Paris, but bearable, since you will spend most of your time outside.
Recommend highly, especially if you are looking to experience a more authentic Parisian stay.

Room Tip: Pack ear plugs. You are in a big city, there will be some street noise at times, unavoidable.

I booked this hotel due to it's central location. It was perfect! Situated a short walk (5 mins) from the Arc d' Triomphe, it is perfect for romantic nights out and lazy shopping trips around the city centre.
It is right next to the metro too, which is useful for travelling around quickly and cheaply. There is also an abundance of restaurants and shops within 100m of the hotel, very useful for a quick bite to eat and some lovely wine!

The hotel is small, but you wont be disappointed!

When going to Paris I would highly recommend staying in one of the smaller boutique hotels over the chain hotels!! The staff was very friendly and knowledable even when dealing with the non french speaker that is me! While the rooms are small (normal for Paris), they are very clean and quaint. It is right off Victor Hugo plaza which makes it simple to catch a taxi or the metro while being within walking distance of the Trocadero and the Eifel Tower.

Room Tip: It is worth asking for a corner room (a little more money but sooo worth it).

Me and my boyfriend just got back from Paris last night - this hotel was perfect!

On our first night we realised the television in our room wasn't working, we mentioned in to reception and someone came up to look at it straight away!
It was a loose connection that couldn't be fixed that night so we were moved to a luxury room! (Made the inconvenience of packing our stuff a less painful!)

The standard rooms are lovely and have everything you would need but the luxury room was amazing!

After a long day at Disney we arrived back expecting to be moved back to our original room however we were met with the news that we were allowed to stay in the luxury room for the rest of our trip with no extra cost!!!

AMAZING! (I am a student so there is no way I would have afforded the room normally)

The location of the hotel is perfect, the victor Hugo metro is around the corner and one stop gets you to Charles de Gaulle etoile from which you can pretty much get to any of the main sights easily.

A pleasant walk to the end of the road gets you to the arc de triomphe and the end of the champs élysées.

And lastly the staff..

Every single member of staff we met were lovely, everyone from the cleaners and concierge to the reception staff (all spoke good English), any questions we had were answered quickly and we were always greeted with a 'bonjour' every time we walked by.

A massive thankyou to all at the Melia Alexander!

Jodie & Josh

Room Tip: If you can afford it then opt for a luxury room, they are lovely!

First time in Paris so didn't know what to expect. Went with partner as a Christmas gift to her and it just so happened that it fell inline with valentines so a few bonus points there. Anyway hotel was easy to find with use of the old iPhone maps and just a quick walk around the corner from the metro / tube station @ victor Hugo. Hotel is very nice, large sized and very clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff on reception that are only to happy to help and don't laugh to much when you try and communicate in very bad pigeon French. :-) ideal location as is only a stones throw walk from main tourist routes and attractions and as said the tube is round the corner for those destinations further afield. Fantastic weekend and would definitely recommend to anybody.

Excellent little hotel. Very central so great for a base for wandering around Paris, you literally stumble across the Eiffel Tower if you walk the quickest route, turn a corner and there it is. The staff were all very polite and accommodating. It was a shame we were on the first floor as I would liked to have had a go in the tiny lift. My only small gripe is lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Highly recommended.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for write a review about our Meliá Alexander.

As you mentioned, our hotel is very near to the Eiffel Tower and many others touristic places to visit in Paris as the Champs Elysées and the Arch of Triumph.

Concerning the tea and coffee making facilities , for your next stay , do not hesitate to book a Premium room , we offer this service from this kind of rooms.

We hope to see you at Meliá Alexander again.
