I stayed here for two nights-room only, a couple of weeks ago. I was travelling with friends as we came over to participate in the Paris Half Marathon.
We were right beside the Madeleine metro.
The hotel itself was lovely. I was in room 502, which had balcony which allowed me to step out and over look the streets. Some of my other friends who stayed in the hotel were not so lucky, they only had a window.
The room itself was beautiful & very clean, came with air con, flat screen TV, Safety Box, Mini Bar, Bath and Shower. The shower had two shower heads, one being a huge monsoon one, which was fabulous. No issues with the water or water temperature etc..
There is free WIFI available in the hotel, however this is very poor and keeps losing connection. I wouldn't rely on it.
The TV had no English channels, not an issue for me, but may be for some.
We stayed room only, so we went out for breakfast each morning to the Madeleine Café, it is the opposite side of the road to the hotel and down to the left at the end of road. This was amazing!! They also did a great special for breakfast too, was very reasonable and delicious!!
We ate in an Italian just close by also and went to an English bar nearby also. The English bar allow you to order food from the Italian up the road, collect it and eat it in the bar which was great, as we were just exhausted after the run and just wanted to chill out in the bar, whilst being fed!
There are 2 supermarkets up the alley across from the hotel, which have everything you could need.
Over all, the location and the people/service were brilliant.
Our last day was spend sight seeing, we walked a lot!! Climbed lots of steps, saw the famous church which allows you to over look Paris. We then climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower, which was just amazing!
If anyone is interested in running, I would definitely recommend the Paris Half Marathon. Such a great course and a beautiful route - very well organised too bearing in mind there were 40,000 participants.
