We were booked into another hotel - nearby and within the same family of hotels as the Madison - but when we arrived to check in we were told that we had been moved to the Madison. Of course, it is unnerving to hear this when you have been researching and planning a trip for many months as we had. We were definitely annoyed as we crossed the street in search of this "other" hotel that we felt we had been shuffled off to. All frustrations and concerns were quickly erased when we realized what a stunningly gorgeous and well-appointed hotel the Madison is. Our room was reasonably large and very well organized. The bathroom was very good, and all amenities that we might have hoped for were present. it is so convenient to be steps to a metro station (st Germaine de pres) and also within 4 blocks of many amazing restaurants and bars. The area is upscale and safe to walk around. The shops are mostly high end, but we found some good deals at some of the chain stores. Staff at the Madison were helpful and quick to answer our questions. The room was clean and always kept up to the highest standards. Our only complaints (and they are small ones) were the bed - two singles pushed together is not ideal - and the lack of any kind of view. We were looking at a brick wall, which was considered an inner courtyard. It is Paris though, so space is at a premium and i suppose the upside is that we were not facing onto the busy street and therefore able to get some sleep at night.
I would highly recommend the Madison and feel fortunate that we were "shuffled off" to this diamond of a property after all. Can't wait to go back! Tres bien.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Madison Hotel, in the Latin Quarter of Saint Germain-des-Prés, 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-Prés and a mere stone's throw from the Seine, the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay, and the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris.The hotel rubs shoulders on the Boulevard Saint Germain with the Café de Flore and the Café de 2 Magots, at the heart of a quarter famed for its cafés, 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
