Madison Hôtel by MH
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
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Room Service
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.
How to Get There
We stopped over in Paris for 3 night en route to another country and we were pleased with our stay. The staff were friendly. The hotel was centrally located with 2 different train stops nearby as well as a taxi depot. There were plenty of restaurants nearby. The breakfast was good with plenty of options. The room was fairly quiet and there was free laundry. I would definitely come back.
Excellent ubication, excellent service, the decoration is very modern, they has laundry services, spa service, nice music, the breakfast delicious, my family and I feel like in home, highly recommended..Excellent..!!..love it..!!
Helpful and patient staff answered all our touristy questions with a smile.
Our room was well appointed and comfortable. Very little street noise, except when a police siren went by.
Only 2 minor quibbles:
The coffee service in the room was a kettle and freeze-dried coffee crystals - would have preferred a fresh brew like a nice K-cup or Nespresso machine. Also, the coffee crystal packages were not replenished.
The tub / shower combination was awkward and uncomfortable. Would have preferred a walk-in shower only.
A good location for exploring the St-G area which has plenty of restaurant & shopping choices nearby. Two metro stations within a block or so.
A €16 cab ride from Gare de Lyon station, and a €60 cab to CDG.
Would stay here again (but with a walk-in shower)
