What We Love

  • The room décor, which blends traditional French design with jaunty pops of color, stripes and modern floral accents
  • The breakfast buffet (and continental breakfast via room service), served until 11 a.m. and perfect for a languid start to a busy day in the French capital
  • The selection of Bordeaux wines served in the stylized hotel bar

What To Know

  • Albert Camus completed his novel L’Etranger here
  • The location in desirable Saint Germain means that some rooms are rather petite
  • The hotel is across the street from the famed cafe Les Deux Magots, frequented by the likes of Picasso, Sartre and Joyce

An exceptionally well-located boutique hotel near Paris’ charming Saint-Germain-des-Pres church

The Lowdown

Built in 1925, the 52-room Madison Hotel overlooks the handsome Saint Germain church tower and its courtyard, flanked by Les Deux Magots cafe. After a total refurbishment in 2011, the hotel gained a new sophistication and earned its fourth star. Guestrooms are thoughtfully designed with cheerful textiles and throw pillows, while the lobby breakfast room offers a wood-burning fireplace and an extensive breakfast buffet.

In the Area

Saint-Germain-des-Pres, located on the Left Bank, was once a hotbed for Parisian existentialists and intellectuals. It has retained its village charms while becoming known for swanky boutiques, wine bars and galleries. The hotel is a short walk from the 18th-century St. Sulpice church, the Gardens of Luxembourg and the Laduree and Pierre Herme patisseries. Of course, it’s proximity to cafe Les Deux Magots will have you playing artist right up the street.

Excellent 4-star boutique hotel
Reviewed 2 days ago

Staying @ the Madison for the 3rd time, we were delighted to find nothing changed - except for new carpeting - from the Privelege Rooms we booked in the past. Breakfast buffet is more than adequate and concierge services are accommodating and knowledgeable. All lighting and bathroom fixtures in the rooms are modern with good bedding, bathrobes and towels.

Small Nice Hotel, good location

Great service, clean and modern. Our room was big for European standards. Breakfast was very good.
Madison is located close to many restaurants in St Germain, close to Louvre and Notre Dame. Definitely would recommend it.

Excellent Hotel and Location
Reviewed 3 days ago

Beautifully tailored and well-appointed rooms, excellent buffet breakfast and a great location. Our only regret was staying only one night (two rooms) as we were returning from a barge trip in Burgundy. Also, Au Coup De Torchon is right around the corner for a tasty bistro dinner.

Perfect choice for a short break in Paris

Our second stay at this lovely boutique hotel and we were delighted to find our welcome every bit as warm as the first visit. Exceptional levels of service.
Brilliant location in the heart of St German. We stayed in a spacious deluxe room at the front of the hotel overlooking the church. Breakfast was included in the rate which was good value for a Parisian hotel. We hope to be back here again soon.

Very nice hotel in a great area of Paris

We totally loved Hotel Madison. We went there with our three college age children. The area around the hotel was close to shopping, restaurants and attractions. We walked, although a good hike, to the Louve and Museum D'Orsay. If you are going to stay here then book the room on the main boulevard. Our kids had this room (15) and it was light and beautiful. Our room was in the back of the hotel ...,number 18 and it was dark. Nice but dark with no view. A huge difference from the other room. As the other reviews state, the best part of the hotel was the concierge, Alexandre. He helped us with tours, recommendations, restaurants, transportation, Everything that we needed help with, he was more than happy to assist us. We missed him on his day off. We had the breakfast every morning which was good and an easy way to start off your day.
