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
- Eco friendly
- Free WiFi
- 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
Came here for business during Paris deco off. An international event focused on interior decoration. It’s a great spot. Location is good. The design of interior is well done, cosy and classy. My room was a standard one probably, looking inside a small but well decorated courtyard. Bed was great. Had a perfect sleep.
My husband and I stayed at the Madison Hotel in June 2017 for 2 nights and it was terrific. We had a Premium room. All rooms in Paris are on the small side, and even though this was ‘smallish’ it was beatifully appointed and we had a window that opened overlooking the church which was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the location fantastic - very close to Metros - and a lovely little bar area on the ground floor. We would definitely stay here again.
I agree with what others have stated. We stayed here in early December for a short vacation and a little Christmas shopping. The location could not have been better. We had a room overlooking the front of the hotel, the Boulevard Saint Germain, the church, and a small Christmas market. We have stayed in different parts of Paris and this location is the best, due to the fantastic neighborhood as well as proximity to numerous good transportation options.
The staff at the hotel were courteous and pleasant. There was nothing that we asked for that was met with a negative reply. From lotions in the room to help with transportation, the staff provided prompt assistance before and during our stay. We were unfortunately in Paris during one of the large "yellow jacket" protests and the concierge could not have been more helpful in giving us info to allow us to plan our day and stay away from any trouble.
We paid for an upgraded larger room with a view and could not have been happier. Service in the room was great, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom amenities were great! Our only complaint was that the shower had one of those little half-enclosures that made it difficult to shower without getting water everywhere. But this arrangement is common in a lot of hotels in paris.
We would love to stay here again and hope to have the opportunity to do so in the near future!
That says it all. This is a wonderful property in every way. Friendly, efficient front desk took care of all our needs. Gorgeous finishings in the rooms and lobby. Delicious breakfast with spot on service. The location could not be better on Blvd. St. Germain.
My husband and I stayed at the Madison for a week between Christmas and New Years. We were very pleased with the location and quality of the hotel. Elegant, comfortable, and friendly, with a superb breakfast every day. We would happily stay there again when we’re next in Paris. The hotel appeared to be very well managed, with a focus on the quality of the guest experience.
