My husband and I stayed at the Madison Hotel earlier this month. The hotel was clean and modern and our room was very spacious. The location was great around so many cafes and restaurants--perfect for a relaxing stay in this beautiful city. The concierge staff was very helpful in arranging reservations and tours. I recommend this hotel.

This was a great start to our European holiday.

We'd booked a deluxe room and it was perfect. It was a good size room, bright and cheerful, with clever wardrobe space and a fridge and a Nespresso machine behind the two large floor to ceiling mirrors that slide across to reveal the space. This is the first time I've stayed in a hotel which had more hangers that I could use. The bathroom was large, especially for Paris standard. It had two sinks. The shower was in the tub and there was a design floor - the floor gets wet when you shower.

It had a view of the oldest church in Paris, St. Germaine church. The outside of the church looked like any other church, but the inside is absolutely beautiful. Much of the colours have faded over the years, I can only imagine its splendour in days past. There is some refurbishment work going on now and should be completed by late this year or next year.

As many reviewers had said, the location of the hotel is perfect. It is near two subway stations, and near all the restaurants and sites. The Notre Dame, The Lourve and River Seine were so close by. It was smack right between Laduree and Pierre Hermes, both of which we visited. My husband and I are runners. We woke up early in the morning before the city woke up, and went for a run along the River Seine, to the Lourve and all the way to the Eiffel Tower. It is a spectacular way to see the city.

The breakfast was not large but every single item that was served was done perfectly. There were cold meats, a variety of cheeses, hard boiled eggs, sausages, bacon, an assortment of pastries and danishes, cereals, tiny French desserts including macarons. Absolutely divine.


There were two things that could have improved the experience:

1. Our flight arrived early in the morning and not the hotel's fault of course, the room wasn't ready. We were unceremoniously told that our room would not be ready until 3pm which is not unfair of course. After all, that was the check-in time. However, after a 13-hour journey, what would have really helped was if they'd offered us a cup of coffee or a drink while we freshened up and deposited our luggage before we headed out.

2. The bed arrangement is two single beds pushed together with two single duvets. When we finally got to the room at 3pm, we saw this arrangement and my husband asked the reception for a change to a king size bed. He was informed that the housekeeping people had left and that the night service people would see to that but we were to use the room in the meantime. So we were under the impression that we would have to move rooms. Therefore, we just used the shower but did not unpack. In the evening, when we asked about the change, the night receptionist informed us that we were not changing room and that the night service people would just rearrange the bedding. By that, they meant that they'd change the sheets to a king size sheet and provide us with one king size duvet instead of two single bed duvets. The mattresses are still two single ones. I accept that this is the best arrangement under the circumstances but would have appreciated it if they'd communicated this to us clearly in the beginning.

For these two reasons, the hotel gets 4 and not 5 stars.

I've just returned with my 20 year old niece from Hotel Madison on what must have been one of the hottest weekends.

Arriving mid afternoon I was pleased to see that the hotel looked fresh and modern. We were allocted a twin room on the first floor. Lovely room but unfortunately overlooking walls and grills.
I asked to change room and the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful. After a very short time he checked us in to room 25 on the second floor and asked if we would pay a small supplement for the upgrade

This room was delightful, wonderfully cool and delightfully decorated. Loads of hanging space with two wardrobes, huge mirror, also a chaise longue, desk and two comfortable chairs. It overlooked the boulevard with two lots of French doors opening on to a small balcony with a lovely and typically Parisienne view . The balcony was surrounded by trailing geraniums and greenery. We were even serenaded by typical French music which wafted up to the room from the street below. This is the stuff that French dreams are made of . . .

The bathroom was large and beautifully tiled with two unusual basins, a good shower and high quality toileteries and towels

Breakfast was nice, with good quality food served buffet style in a small yet stylish breakfast area although I would say try one of the cafes nearby. The surrounding area included amongst others, high end clothing shops and restuarants including Les Deux Magots and Cafe de Flore all within yards

I feel I must make a special mention of the two hotel staff on duty on our arrival who really couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant. The jewel in the crown however is Nicholas, the night manager who made our stay out of the ordinary. He was so helpful to us and everyone he met and just a joy.

Not a cheap hotel but not extortionate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a boutique style hotel with good quality rooms, pleasant staff in an ideal location

It is always a pleasure to check in at the Madison after a trans-Atlantic flight. I had first picked the hotel for its location but I return to it as much for the warmth and professionalism of the staff as for its convenience. The rooms are lovely and the deluxe rooms are surprisingly roomy for Paris. I recommend room 35 which has a nice view out on the Blvd. St. Germain and is spacious. The hotel is convenient to two Metro lines and is just a short walk to fine restaurants. The walk from the Madison to the Seine is one of my favorite Paris strolls.

We stayed in the St Germain area from a recommendation from a friend who lived in Paris for several years. Great location and a great area to walk to many places. This small boutique hotel was just perfect for myself and 18 year old granddaughter. The service was wonderful and very helpful in every way. We could even walk to the Lourve from our hotel. It was a long walk but I'm 65 and did fine walking. All the streets are very flat so it's easy walking. I would stay here again. The buffet breakfast was pricy but we did eat there once and it was great with many choices of food. The stuff was superb!!!!

I spent one week with my family in Paris during the first part of July. We had 4 rooms and at one point we even had a 5th one only for two days. The composition of our group was of 2 grandparents, 3 children and 6 grandchildren ages 5-10. We all had such a a great time at the hotel. Everything was clean, comfortable and the breakfast was beautifully served. The two concierges and the ladies/gentlemen at the front desk were most helpful at all times. I could not have asked for more during our stay at the Madison. This made our stay in Paris even more memorable. Thank you! Maria Victoria

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Madison Hotel, in the Latin Quarter of Saint Germain-des-Pres, is a boutique hotel in a chic, contemporary style. This delightful hotel with its 50 rooms and suites is located on the Left Bank opposite the church of Saint-Germain-des-Pres and a mere stone's throw from the Seine, the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay, and the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. The hotel rubs shoulders on the Boulevard Saint Germain with the Cafe de Flore and the Cafe de 2 Magots, at the heart of a quarter famed for its cafes, art galleries, museums, antique dealers and designer fashion boutiques. The Madison Hotel is also firmly at the heart of literary Paris... Albert Camus spent some time at the hotel in the spring of 1940, and it was here that he completed his existentialist novel "L'Etranger" (The Outsider). Perhaps his spirit still hovers somewhere... ... more   less
