“Time for Upgrade”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

I have been going to this hotel annualy for the last 6 years, as it is very well situated. Close to all the big shops and close walking distance to all the main Paris attractions. The hotel has changed owners, so they plan to close at the end of October and upgrade to a 3 star, so the prices will be upgraded as well. It is well overdue for an overhaul. The one day we returned to our room to find that the room had not been cleaned. When you pay those prices you expect a min: of service.Lets see what the renovations will be like?

Room Tip: take a street facing room as the rooms facing the courtyard can be a bit noisy with the local reside...

Chose this hotel because of its closeness to St.Lazare train station from which we had to depart the following day (a 5 min. walk). The location is also good in terms of sightseeing: you can easily and pleasantly walk to lots of places of interest and the big shops (Le Printemps and Galerie Lafayette) are just around the corner. However, it is perhaps good to keep in mind that the area around Madeleine is not very cheap. If you want to have an inexpensive lunch in a typical Parisian cafe, it is better to go somewhere else.
Our general impression of the hotel was positive, but I do not think I would like to spend more than a couple of nights there. The staff was quite polite. The room (the bed linen, the sink, etc.) was the usual size for Parisian hotels of this category and clean enough, but, if you looked a bit more closely, you could see that some less obvious areas were forgotten and dusty. The carpet is worn and needs to be replaced. The was a (rather noisy) fan in the room. Half of the TV channels that they claim to have (a list of them is provided in the room) is unavailable. On the whole, I would say: good enough for a night or two if you do not intent to spend a lot of time inside. If you want a more enjoyable place, look elswhere.

I stayed here for a week while on a business trip. The room was very small - I was on the 4th floor. The bathroom was TINY. I could barely shower...water got everywhere by the time I was done trying to maneuver a hair wash. My room had a funky smell to it but considering I was never in it I didn't really care - left the window open and fan going all the time. Internet is NOT free but rather expensive, as it is everywhere in Paris. Breakfast was fine. Location was SUPERB. The restaurant/bar next door was always bustling, great shopping, and next to several subway stops which made it easy to get around. Overall a great value.

The Hotel Madeleine Opera has a perfect location with a few Metro and one RER station nearby. It is within walking distance to the Opera, Lafayette and Place de la Madeleine.

The front desk staff were all very helpful and polite and there was someone there 24/7 in case you need something. You leave the key as you exit the hotel which for me was very convenient as you don’t have to worry about it.

The elevator is extremely small (2 people+1 suitcase maximum) but that was not an issue for us. The building is old and the common hallways could use a renovation (especially the carpets) but the room looked beautiful!

We stayed at a double room for €84 per night without breakfast. The room was spacious for Paris standards with a comfy bed, pillows, blanket, clean, crispy sheets and a flat screen tv. I’ve never been to a Paris hotel so clean and taken care of. There was a closet and the window had a lovely view of the Parisian street. Ask for room 45 on the fourth floor.

The bathroom was fully renovated with new tiles etc and was spotless. Only minor issue was the shower curtain which was too big for the shower and although it kept water from coming out, it was limiting the already limited space in the shower.

Room and bathroom were cleaned to perfection daily.

We didn’t try the breakfast as there are lots of options around (Paul’s by the corner etc).
Overall we will definitely prefer this hotel from now on for our Paris trips as it combines excellent location, very clean rooms, nice street view and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend it!

Great location, and Jean-Paul on the front desk was a truly superb host, juggling multiple tasks with a smile and treating us (four very tired English-speakers staying only one night) as helpfully and kindly as if we had been paying for a month.

We had booked the ‘apartment' which turned out to be on interesting configuration consisting of a self-contained suite of two connected bedrooms, one with two beds, a large double in the other, with desk, table and chairs. The persons sleeping in the two-bed room had to pass through the other bedroom to reach the small common areas: a toilet room, a closet with /room safe and a lovely modern bathing room with the luxurious bath tub /shower and vanity/sink. This was connectivity was fine for our family group, as privacy wasn’t a big expectation.

Check-in and out were efficient, Jean-Paul gave us great advice and made phone calls to book us reservations and obtain information. The elevator was indeed barely able to hold one person with a suitcase, and the classic older building did show some signs of long use, but the vital parts were in good shape and facilities worked fine and seemed clean.

I thought the price/location combination was truly good value and I would certainly return as long as the attitude of helpfulness remains unchanged. I will mention that we initially picked the location because it was near the train station to Normandy/ D-Day beaches. It was a wonderful surprise that from this hotel the key sites of Paris were so accessible as well, by both foot and subway.
