Madison-Spa is so nice, I love it! I can't wait to come and try a couple's massage with my hubbie. I haven't been in a while but have been meaning to tell everyone how much I love this place. If your in pain a massage at madison-spa would totally help. I love their facials too. I'm so happy I found them. Going to tell all my girlfriends about them (and have told some so far) because I came to Madison-Spa for my first facial and haven't been the same since. My skin looks so smooth and clear.
I found Madison Spa by looking on line. I had a Face and Skin Beautiful day. This included facial with microderm abrasion, hot stone massage, sauna, reflexology and I was suppose to have an eye treatment but she focused on the lines near my mouth with another treatment. (She still did my eyes too) Point being, it was very personalized treatment. The staff was extremely attentive and hospitable. I was the only one there so it was very private and relaxing. (They seem to have been taking many calls for appointments as I passed the desk several times). It is a bit retro in style and music but the personalized attention and state of the art services totally overshadowed everything else. The cost is truly a bargain and the treatments are completely worth every moment of time. I especially loved the facial and after a week really see differences in the lines in my face. Honestly, I didn't even care so much about that...it was relaxing, rejuvenating and frankly refreshing to get the quality of service in Manhattan. I just moved here 5 years ago
and usually feel like spas are doing me a favor. This was a very wonderful experience that I totally recommend!
I have recently visited Madison spa with my husband and took advantage of the summer in the city package. I was amazed by the quality of work. Facial was simply unbelievable. 2 weeks after my skin still looks better then it has in years. My husband and i both enjoyed the massage, which was performed in the same room for both of us. It was our anniversary present to each other and we truly had a very romantic day in this spa. we were offered wine and chocolate after service was completed. Staff was pleasant. atmosphere was friendly. I would strongly recommend it.
superb service! great firendly atmosphere. clean and classy. very pleasant experience.
I had a great experience at Madison spa. Great facility, clean, well decorated. Cordial stuff, friendly atmosphere. Excellent facial. Superb massage. Overall very pleasant experience.
Pros: Cordial stuff, friendly atmosphere. Excellent facial. Super
Madison is a lovely spa, beautifully decorated and very clean! I have very oily skin and after a thorough facial from Irina I left feeling beautiful and revived! There was no redness afterwards, which is common in other spas following extractions. Irina took her time, explaining each step to me and my skin glows right now. Highly recommended!! Very affordable too and convenient location!
Pros: Wonderful Facial
Last week I had a OXY treatment facial with Irina! It was the best experience I have ever had. My skin has never been so incredibly smooth and soft! Everyone was complimenting me! Not only did I look great, I also felt great. I would recommend this to every woman who needs that revitalizing treatment! I've never been this satisfied! \r
Pros: Friendly staff, excellent service and great value!
Had an extremely pleasant half dat here. The ultimately best hot rock massage I ever had, and I've hat a few. Body scrub was great too. Facial was okay, but would have rathered a deep clean or gold facial...Atmosphere is quaint. Walls have the unique n stylish faux antique paint design which adds to the atmosphere. was offered wine and tea, and truffles. Not upscale, worth the money...very nice
Pros: Very personal and pleasant
Cons: not crowded
I took my mom to this spa for mothers day, and I really wasnt sure what to expect. When we first walked in we were kind of unsure of how it would be, but the women were really nice. We were brought into a room and given hot tea which was very good. We then went to changing rooms and my only complaint is that they don't have any lockers to lock up your belongings. After we changed into our robes we were brought into a sauna, which was nice. After the sauna we were brought into two seperate rooms. My mother had the facial first and I had the massage first. My massage was great and my mother loved her facial. We then were brought back to the waiting room where they had tea and wine for us. After a few minutes I went for my facial and my mother went for her massage. My face never felt so smooth it was amazing. Overall, I thought the prices were very reasonable and I would definitely go back and I recommend this place for massage and facials,
Pros: best facial
Cons: no lockers
My friends and I wanted a spa day on our last day of shopping in the city. We were able to choose 4 services, normally a $600 package at some places. We booked the package for $200. The hot stone massage was good, but the facial and reflexology combo was incredible! It was like angels dancing on my skin while having 15 miles of city walking drained out of my feet and legs.... at the same time!! So the decor wasn't like the Waldorf, but I quickly got over that as soon as I met the ladies and began my services. They are professional, skilled, and amazing- and that's what counts. I WILL be back! \r
Oh and the Body Scrub... An experience like no other!!!\r
Pros: Fantastic Staff, Amazing Services
I went to this spa while on a girls' weekend in New York. It was fabulous! The cost was very reasonable and the service was outstanding. I have to admit I was a little hesitant at first. The building and decor weren't the best but I quickly got over that. Everything was perfect, from start to finish and I loved every minute of my spa day! I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants an incredible experience without spending an incredible amount of money!
I loved the atmosphere at this spa. Friendly staff, excellent service and great value! My first impression is that the owner takes pride in her work. She seems to be willing to go out of her way to ensure that I left satisfied with the service. My overall experience was a positive one. My facial was performed with the help of the latest equipment as was explained to me. At first I was skeptical, but all my skepticism has quickly dissipated when Irene started her work. I was in haven! I loved how thorough she was. She took time to make sure it was done well. She is a perfectionist. Definitely the most important quality for me.
Pros: Friendly staff, excellent service and great value!
I went to Madison Spa after work - the good news is that they can take you on the same day.\r
My first impression upon walking in was ""grandmother's apartment"" - it was a bit stuffy and worn and I didn't expect the best. The facial room was like a dentists office.\r
The hot stone massage was not that great as the masseuse was not really paying attention and didn't seem to know what she was doing. \r
The facial (done by owner) and the chocolate wrap (done by an amazing person) was absolutely a dream and made me forget about my surrroundings...until I had to go in the shower which had someone elses hair in it. \r
The heart of the staff and owner makes an mishaps disappear as you can tell that she is very hard working but overall, the spa effect didn't last very long despite the fact that they spent an extra hour with me. I spoke with the owner about my disappointment and she assured me that the hot stone massage was not the usual and she would switch the person who did it the next time I came back.
Pros: Chocolate Wrap, Facial,
Cons: Ambiance/Decor, Hot Stone Massage, Cleanliness
Just wanted to share my experience at Madison-spa. I came in for the first time for facial by recommendation provided to me by friend who is a regular customer.\r
This was the best facial I have ever had! Oh My God!!!! My skin have never looked better! The whole experience was a present one. Great service. Great treatment. Will be back again for sure!\r
Thanks and best regards\r
Pros: Great Service, Great Facial
I was very weary about this place b/c I have had bad beauty experiences in NYC, but the woman there, Irina, was AMAZING! She is Italian, so a lot of the products and methods she used were different than what I was used to.. but turns out Italy must be more advance that the United States b/c the facial cleared my skin up in 2 days! Great experience!
Im a regular to this spa and normally go for a hot stone massage. Its the best you get in the city. I have tried many different places, but this one is clearly the best. My experience is nothing but positive here. Have not had an average treatment yet. They are clearly customer focused and they always try to make sure that I feel comfortable and enjoy my treatment. On Monday I decided to go for a facial for the very first time. OH GOD!!!! What a treat!!!! How could I not loved it when my face was glowing! I dont remember last time when I looked that good. Even my sister noticed that I looked good. I think I will have to bring her here for her birthday in August. You most definitely feel that your money are well spent when you feel good and look good.
Pros: facial. hot stone
I went in for a hot stone massage and was slightly disappointed. The proper way of giving a hot stone massage is to first rub down and loosen up the body(which she did) then use the stones to rub down the area you are working on (i.e back, neck etc) then you PLACE the stone on to the proper points to allow the full affects of the stone to take place. By placing the stones and allowing them to sit and work their magic you can feel the toxic energy rising from your body, almost a tingling feeling. The vibe of the place was not very spa like.. just more of an old doctor office type feeling. I was offered tea at the end and the ladies were nice. Overall is was fine for me for that day( i was very tense and just needed a massage).
Pros: rub down was good
Cons: not a proper hot stone massage
My cousin introduced me to the treatment of a lifetime! I did not have high expectations walking into the Madison spa. After all, I?m not a naive spa visitor. I usually treat myself to a massage and a facial at least once a month. This visit though, I must admit, has exceeded my expectations! \r
The spa package I took included a facial, a hot stone massage, and a body wrap. From the minute I walked in I felt the most important customer despite the fact that there were other people in the spa receiving treatments. I was taken into the facial room. I was informed that the facial I was about to get was going to be performed with the help of a newest technological equipment that is currently available. I was also tolled that many celebrities receive similar treatments. I was skeptical at first, but my skepticism was blown away when I looked at my self in the morrow. My skin looked better then ever before! My next treatment was a hot stone massage. I felt so relaxed, I almost fell asleep during the treatment. I did not want it to end. My body felt like jelly. The final treatment of the package was a body wrap. By that point I was already in haven. I was offered a glass of wine with some sweets at the end of my treatment and was on my way back to reality. Never did I think that my daily routine can be forgotten by a spa treatment! Can not wait to come back!
""We had a wonderful and very relaxing time each visit we had to your spa and we can't wait to see you again..""\r
""We found this spa on the Internet and booked before we went to New York. As well as offering better value than the spas in New York, the Madison SPA authenticity and expertise of the therapists made for a very relaxing set of treatments. We have no hesitation in recommending the spa to anyone and will tell our friends about it. We have been home for a week now and we are still both sleeping better than before. It helped to make this visit to Bali truly memorable.""
""While staying in New York at the hotel, we discovered your wonderful spa through the internet. During the week that we were at the New York we spent time at the spa almost every day. The variety of treatments and the totally professional service were beyond compare. We particularly enjoyed the relationship that we developed with the lovely girls,who took such marvelous care of us each day. The setting was particularly tranquil and relaxing. We are planning a return trip to New York in the Spring of 2009 and intend to renew our enjoyment at the spa. We highly recommend all the services that provided for us.\r
We always felt totally relaxed at the end of the spa treatments. It was also nice to know that everyone spoke such good English. We were therefore able to communicate to them what particular needs we had. \r
We look forward to our return visit.""
I had the worse time of my life. It was a waste of time and money. I was highley upset that I wasted my money on this place .
After a long and tedious research on how to correct imperfections on skin of my face, I decided to try facial, by, what my girlfriend refers to is magic Irina. This woman ( Irina) was able to do what I have not been able to achieve in over 5 years! Even after a first session, I was already able to see major improvements in my skin! My face felt softer and smoother then I can ever remember. I have tried gold mask and I have tried rejuvenation facial, I have tried several different packages and have not yet stopped being amassed by the improvements in the quality of my skin after each treatment. Magic Irina ? you are a hidden treasure of Manhattan! Thank you for saving my skin! my search for the treatment of my blemishes, imperfections, and spots is finally over! \r
Pros: great value
I bought my girlfriend a birthday present. A day at the Madison spa ? it was a big Success! She loved it. She had a massage a facial and a body wrap. When she got home from the spa ? she just could not stop talking about how beautiful she felt and how much she enjoyed it. For me ? it was a big reward knowing that she had a great time. For her ? she was pampered and treated like a queen. She now wants for both of us to go back for the couples massage. I?m looking forward to it. I only hear good things about this place. I know my girl is a bit of a snob, she would not love it unless it was really good.
Pros: great massage, great facial and a great body wrap
Took my husband for an anniversary present to this spa for a couples package. What a nice treat!!! Massage was peasant and relaxing. Facial was the best I ever had!!!! I felt 10 years younger after leaving this place. I loved it so much that I scheduled followed up appointment right away!! I would strongly recommend this place! Very professional. Pleasant atmosphere! We were offered some tea and some chocolates after the treatment. What a nice touch.
Pros: great facial
I took my bf here for a couples massage in Jan and it was very disappointing. I chose it b/c the spa had good reviews, but was relatively cheap. When I called to make an appointment, it sounded like I had called someone's cell phone and caught them in the middle of something. They didn't ask about male/female preferences for masseuses or anything. Red flag #1. At the spa, we had to ring the buzzer about 10 times. Apparently there is no receptionist. Upon entering, I almost died laughing. The decor was awful. Oh well, we were there for a massage, right? \r
I booked the My Sweet Love package since it was only about $50 more than booking two 60 minute hot stone massages. I figured that was a decent bargain. HUGE MISTAKE. The massage was 30 mins tops! If you've ever had a massage -- 30 mins is a tease. They barely got to my back at all. I have to say the room was nice. Candle light and music. There was one awkward point where the music stopped for a few seconds and you could hear my male masseus' heavy breathing. YUCK. Then they took us to the sauna, but no one really told us what was going on so after 20 mins in there and then sitting in the room for a bit, we had to go looking for someone. Then we went to the ""antique"" room where we had some terrible wine and stale Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Again after like 20 mins we had to go looking for someone. At this point I just wanted the whole thing to be over with. We then had the chocolate scrub, which was nice, but the smell was kind of sickening after awhile. My person actually left mid-way through to answer the door buzzer! Then they wrapped us up to let the cream set in. I swear we were in there for like 45 mins. Finally the nightmare was over. If you go, do NOT get a package. The massage was very nice and romantic (although WAY too short), but everything else was weird and certainly did not put us in the mood. The spa is clearly understaffed and really took away from the experience.
We just returned from NYC (girl's weekend)and had the most pleasurable spa experience of our lives! The Oxygen facial was delightful, my skin is still glowing. Irin, was so knowledgeable and has ""goddess hands"", the facial was the best ever! Also, I had the most awesome, The Hot Stone Massage with Fernando was incredible. Truly warm and wonderful group of therapists are lovely people who have really created a Spa like no other.
I have just came back from this spa. I had a very positive experience. Living in Geneva most of my life, I have visited many different types of spa facilities, and what I like most about Madison Spa is the service and the atmosphere. I bought a package with the facial and the hot stone massage and both were performed by clearly knowledgeable therapist. She has not only performed the service with the most delightful attitude, she has also went out of her way to go over the types of facial creams I should be using for the my type of skin. She is very knowledgeable and I would recommend her without hesitation.\r
Massage therapist also was very sensitive to my privacy. The room was clean and a very dimmed lights and pleasant background music made me forget all my troubles. Very Very positive experience. Loved the place!!!!! Loved the service!!! Strongly recommend!\r
Visiting Madison-spa was a treatment of a lifetime! What a pleasant atmosphere. Beautiful, clean, fresh, tasteful decorated room was prepared for me on time for my facial appointment, but when the treatment began? I did not care to even enjoy the my surroundings. I fell into the deep sense of enjoyment. The therapist providing a facial service to me has introduced me to the to the sense of well being! This treatment truly detoxified me and made me feel and look younger. Truly the ultimate luxurious experience!
What an ultimate day of relaxation!! had a hot stone massage and the body wrap. Great service. Great treatment. Delightful stuff. I felt pamapred and relaxed. Strongly recomend it.
I am thrilled with the staff and the serene atmosphere of the spa. The massage was heavenly. I plan on visiting this spa every month now! Five stars!!!
When I finished with my appointment, I was not happy about the service. However, the owner of the spa called me and asked how my treatment was. When I said that I was not happy, she invited me to come back for a free massage because she wants me to be happy with their services and come back again. I was very impressed with this customer service and will definitely give the spa another chance.
I have had facials at many places within and outside of Manhattan. This was by far the best one I have ever had. In additon to making me look better than I though t possible, I got the sense that the staff really cared about how I looked and felt. Five stars all the way around.
I've visited Madison Spa on 2 occasions for a birthday celebration and for a personal pampering day. I've also purchased gift certificates for a friend. Every experience with this spa has been really positive. The Ultimate Relaxation package was over the top! I slept better that night than I have in 20 years, and felt completely renewed by the next day. Also, for almost 4 hours of work, I thought the package was affordable. The staff is incredibly sweet; always asking how you're doing. They take great time explaining everything to you. They made me feel very important, and I did not feel rushed to leave as I did in other spas. The owner even remembered my name and I hadn't come in the spa for months. The facility is serene. I highly recommend Madison Spa to any spa goer seeking a peaceful, professional, and VIP experience.\r
Pros: Service, Quality
Okay i just came back from this spa and the chocolate wrap was amazinggggg! Here's the deal when you walk in the place is really old looking and dosen't really look like a spa. I think the beds are old and the carpet isn't that pleasant but once you get the chocolate body wrap everything is forgotton. They make the chocolate thing they rub on themselves then they wrap you up in you for 40 minutes. Then i took a shower and went into the sauna. For my final treatment the facial she used the microdermabrasian machine on me it was strange at first because i never saw one but it's pretty cool. Then she applied a mask and gave me an oxygen mask like the one they use in the hospital. It was really cool and different. I will defitnely go back there again. \r
I highly recommend you go to the spa and try the chocolate body wrap you will love it!!
Pros: Best chocolate body wrap
Cons: old rooms not spa like
I had a great experience at this spa. This is the best anti ?stress treatment you can get! Love this place. Everyone was very polite and very professional. Will go again and again and again.
I was visiting New York last week and a friend of mine took me to this spa. I LOVED IT. My massage was great. My beauty treatment was also very very good. My face feels cleaner and my skin looks better. I wish they had an affiliation in Rome!\r
Next time I?m in New York I will go back for sure!
Came to the Madison-Spa for a package I?ve seen advertised on city search. My first impression was that the staff was very friendly. I bought Oxygen Facial ? this treatment made me look and feel much better and I have even received compliments from y colleagues at work on the clarity of my skin. I Loved every moment of it! I have also bought and Hot stone massage as part of the package. This relaxing massage made me forget all the Christmas stress. What a great way of treating yourself when you feel you need to get away from the daily stress and routine. Reflexology was also part of the package. A different therapist was performing each service. I Loved it. Thank you for a wonderful time which made me look and feel better and now I?m ready to host my family Christmas diner.
I came in to Madison-Spa for I adore you package. As part of it I have received a hot stone massage and a facial. Massage was very relaxing and made me forget my daily routine. Facial was simply amazing! Thanks! Im a new person now and simply hooked to having facials from now on.
Contrary to every other review I had a terrible experience. Worst massage that I have ever had. I had to shower 3 times just to get all the oil off. Typically, I picture a spa as a clean, comfortable and refined atmosphere. This was not the case here. There are much better places at a comparable price in NYC.
I took a friend of mine to celebrate his birthday. I purchased the ""I adore you"" couple package. The therapists catered to us, constantly served us chocalate, wine, and tea in a private room right in between their offered services. It was more like an intermission. We were there for 3 relaxing hours. I never had an in-depth facial in any other spa, like this one. My face and his face had a glow. They took there time with everything, no rush at all. Also, the chocalate moose wrap, is another service i thought was unique as well, my body smelled delicious. Its a spa, that you must try, if you are looking for tranquility and peace this is the spot.
Pros: Best facial, the spa made u feel comfortable
Cons: The spa kinda looks like an office.
This spa is special by its friendly stuff and clean relaxing atmosphere. The best things to be spoiled by are facial, hot-stone massage and chocolate wrap. The body renovates itself after such treatment. I was floating when I left that salon. Also, very important part is that nobody is rushing you. You feel very well taking care off, they observe you and letting you enjoy the moment and then walk you to another procedure. I also took a launch option and did not regret. I loved the setting of that room and everything nicely put only for you on beautiful china. It was a very enjoyable half-day break for me from our hyper New York life.
Pros: Wow to service, quality and price!
I have a very bad skin. I have tried many different treatments, many different masks and many different facials. My journey to find a solution to my skin problem has been solved!\r
I have read about Madison-spa and decided to give it a try. I have called in and asked for the owner to schedule a facial. She was booked and the first available day was Monday evening appointment. I came in with high expectations based on the reviews I read. What I can tell now is this lady (I think her name is Irene) has magic hands! She recommended 6 treatments, but after a first one, I already see that my skin is better then ever! \r
Pros: Awesome Service! Magnificent Facials!
I cannot imagine why anyone would go to a different day spa. I Loved the facial! I Loved the massage! I Loved the service!
My boyfriend and I went to this spa for a couples spa package (I adore you) LOVED IT. We talk about it all the time now. It was quite an experience! I felt all the stress of the day-today life moving away as a therapist massaged my body. I was also impressed by the quality of the facial! I now know what a great facial should be like :)\r
Thank you Madison-Spa for the great service and a great experience! We will make sure to spread the word!\r
Pros: great service and a great experience great quality of the facial
I went in again today for a facial and a hot stone massage. I thought I would try a new facial. This time I asked for a 5 step rejuvenation facial (I normally just get a European facial) This is something amazing! I never thought my skin can look that good! I have asked for the owner again, and she was kind enough to squeeze me in (she is normally booked). She has amazing hands! She is a keeper! I have never been disappointed by her. Have not yet tried a new facial lady, but I have heard good things about her. Has anyone had facials form her?
Pros: Thumbs up facials
My boyfriend and I spent our first year anniversary celebrating at the Madison-Spa. We came in for and I adore you package. We had a massage in the same room and I was getting my facial he was enjoying his treatment. We both enjoyed pampering and felt very relaxed. Everyone was very friendly and gave us privacy. We were not rushed to leave. What great way to spend a special occasion!
Pros: Thumbs up Service! Thumbs up Atmosphere! Thumbs up Value! Thumbs up Facials!
This is best place for facials by far, but I also like the hot stone massage. Im a regular there and the owner knows me very well. She is the one with red hair. If you can get her for facial you are guaranteed to have great result. I think they have someone new now for facials I have not tried her yet. Did anyone have a good facial experience? For hot stone massage they have several massage therapists I had a very good experience with all of them. Strongly recommend this place. It is not expensive at all and service is much better then anywhere else I have been to.
Pros: not expensive, great service
I have read some of these review and decided to try it out myself, Boy was I not disappointed! What a great service! I received 1 hr massage which brought me to haven. Facial was just amazing and the chocolate wrap simply blew me away. I know what you mean when you say you are addicted to this place. I definitely can relate.
Pros: Thumbs up
This was my first visit to this spa and I now Im addicted! I have never had such a great facial. My friends even noticed that my skin looked much better. I definitely recommend this place! Very friendly and comfortable environment and no pressure to buy any products.
Pros: Great Spa, Great Service, no pressure
