Hyatt Paris Madeleine Review and Photos


Our Hyatt Paris Madeleine Review is of a King Premium Room with an Eiffel Tower view. Also see our Top Paris Luxury Hotels with Eiffel Tower Views. We ended up having a much better stay at the Hyatt Paris Madeleine than at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome, where we'd spent the previous night.

Hyatt Paris Madeleine Location, Getting There, and Check-In

The hotel is located at 24 Blvd. Malesherbes in the 8th Arrondissement, so we walked about 12 minutes to get there from the Park Hyatt. The hotel is a 30-60 minute drive from CDG Airport, depending on traffic, and is a 15 minute walk to the Musee de l'Orangerie, and a 25 minute walk from the Musee d'Orsay or to the Louvre Museum.

When we arrived, we were offered help with our luggage (unlike at the Park Hyatt), although we declined, since we travel lightly, and we were also offered a welcome drink of either champagne or fresh squeezed orange juice; I chose the orange juice, which was excellent.

Hyatt Paris Madeleine King Premium Room

King Premium rooms, which are 301-387 square feet, are ideal for a small family who doesn't want to book a suite, since they include both a king bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was about the size of a queen bed and comfortably accommodated our teenager.

We were fortunate enough to be on the 6th floor, with a distant view of the Eiffel Tower:

Welcome amenities were lovely: fresh seasonal fruit included apricots, there were some of the hotel's namesake madeleines, a bottle of red wine for my husband and me, and Alain Milliat passion fruit juice for our son (which I ended up drinking and loving, as it was too tart for our son).

The Nespresso machine was a Vertuo model:

The bathroom only had one sink, which is typical for historical Paris hotels, with a glass enclosed shower and separate soaking tub.

Bath products were Clarins, which I actually prefer to the heavily perfumed Blaise Mautin products at the Park Hyatt. The only problem was that one of the pump dispensers wasn't working properly, so that was a bit of a pain to have to unscrew the dispenser and try to get product out of the large bottles that are affixed to the shower wall.

Complimentary Happy Hour

A lovely touch was the complimentary happy hour at 6pm, where we enjoyed a glass of white wine, popcorn nibbles, and a fresh baked savory warm madeleine, all in the hotel's light-filled atrium lounge.

Hyatt Paris Madeleine Breakfast

We enjoyed our Hyatt Prive complimentary breakfast at Cafe M, which serves breakfast daily from 6:30-11am. The buffet wasn't quite as large as at the Park Hyatt Paris, but was nicely complemented by an a la carte menu (also complimentary) with made to order eggs, avocado toast with smoked salmon, crepes, fresh fruit, and more.

We particularly enjoyed the fresh squeezed juices, crepes, Ferme des Peupliers yogurt, berries, pain aux raisins, and cappuccino.

The Verdict

Our King Premium room was light filled, comfortable, and enjoyed a distant view of the Eiffel Tower. The natural light and the higher floor made for a much more enjoyable stay than in our cramped dark, noisy room at the Park Hyatt Paris, and the much lovelier welcome, with the welcome drink, more abundant welcome amenities, and friendlier staff, not to mention the complimentary happy hour, also improved our spirits. Our breakfast experience food-wise was very nearly as good as at the Park Hyatt, and taking into account the more attentive service (nothing forgotten!) overall better.
