“love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Being for the second time consequently at this nice, cosy and well located hotel we were pleased to see that everything is going well this year too.
Charm and intimate atmosphere, welcome spirit makes you to feel at home.
This year we booked a standard twin beds room (compared with a superior room in 2013), that being room no.307. It was quite good in size having in mind that we speak about a location downtown Paris, with nice decorations and colours. There is a mini bar with different refreshments and beverages, chocolates, peanuts, chips; Flat TV offering different programmes. Slippers available. Great cleaning services.
As for the bathroom, there are bath robes and few toiletteries available. The only one think I dislike (but not a great problem at all) is the shower which is fixed on the ceiling.
Bathroom is good in size.
Free Wi-Fi with good connection. At the lobby there are two desktop computers, one oh them with a printer, free of charge.
As for breakfast there are plenty of choices (compared with other hotels), hot and cold dishes, fresh orange juice and kiwi, good coffee at your choice. Great service too
Last but not the least, our special remarks and thanks go to front desk personnel. Happy and smiling faces, helpful, kind and all the time ready to make your staying one of the best.
The location is one of the best in Paris: 5 min walking to Madeleine church, 10 min.to Opera Garnier and Grand Magasins on Bvd Haussmann
Closest metro station: Madeleine. Closes RER station: Auber, RER A
In the neighbourhood, nice for a walk as Paris has a lot to offers is Place Concorde and from there the fabulous Champs Elysee

If you are looking for a friendly hotel close to all tourist sites this hotel should be on your shopping list. Friendly service who helped with shopping and local restaurants. Transport is nearby but we walked everywhere which was great.

The best part of this place is its location. It's pretty much a 20-30 minute walk from everywhere you might want to go. The room was small - small enough that with two open suitcases on the floor, we had to hop on one foot or jump over the bed to get to the bathroom. While we were there, the elevator was out of order for a bit, so we had to hike up the stairs to the 6th floor a couple of times. The concierge was extremely helpful with tour and restaurant suggestions. The biggest bonus for us was that we were actually able to check in at 11am instead of 3pm when we arrived from the airport. Coming from someone who was extremely jet lagged, that was amazing.

After a lot of web searching for a hotel in Paris my wife and I decided on the Waldorf Madeleine and certainly do not regret our decision. It is a great location, very central to everything, clean, friendly and a pleasure to stay at.
The breakfast room is only small but adds to the experience. We'll be back.

Room Tip: A hint, get a corner room, they have a lot more space than any other room in the hotel and a lot mor...

I've been to this hotel many, many times and service has always been excellent. Staff is very friendly and they'll go out of your way to make your stay as pleasant as can be. Breakfast is very nice as well, and with the renovated rooms, it is WOW, just WOW! I was there last August and was once again very impressed with the LED lights and new modern look! I shall be back! A huge plus is that they are located at a walking distance to all those beautiful places you must see.

Room Tip: It's worth looking at the luxury suites!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel made extra special by our free upgrade due to our anniversary. The hotel was central & within walking distance of most of the best attractions of Paris. My only criticism was the staff's lack of knowledge of dietary requirements. Maybe I'm expecting a lot but I didn't think requiring to eat gluten free isn't a big ask these days?

Dear Katie H,

Thank you very much to take on your time to write down your comments regarding the hotel and it location.

We hope to welcome you one more time when you will come back in Paris.

Also, I thought that there were a misunderstanding regarding your without gluten restaurant request because, of course we have some of them around the hotel.

Apologize for this mistake,

Kind regards and good end of the year,

The Management

Staff is super friendly. Location is very good - close to Madeleine metro station and to rue de Rivoli. Rooms at the corner (ended in 1) are bigger - gigantic for Paris standards. We weren't disturbed by the busy avenue downstairs thanks to the good anti noise windows.
