Highly recommended hotel in Paris. Great location and very good value. The bar at reception, while limited, is nice to sit and have a drink in. Décor is very fitting with the city and the service received very good.

We had the pleasure to stay at the Chess Hotel for a long weekend. I searched the usual sites looking for a hotel that fitted our requirements and was a reasonable cost. The communication from the hotel prior to arrival ensured that we had thought of everything. And also prompted me on a few things I hadn't covered. From the... More

The hotel is a small but beautiful and boutique hotel, it is the best location for shopping, the most popular mall Lafayette and Printemps are so nearby. The staffs are helpful and very gentle. The deluxe room is big enough, clear and comfort!!

I've been to Paris many time, staying in mostly 4 and 5 star hotels. This great small hidden Botique close to the Opera was outstanding. Beautiful modern rooms, typically sized for Paris, a breakfast that was amazing, and a beyond friendly staff to make your stay easy and special. We had cocktails each evening in the lobby lounge that were... More

Excellent location, very helpful and friendly staff. I got a bottle of champagne and profiteroles for my birthday which was lovely. The highlight was the comfy bed and aircon and big bathroom. Downside was shower cap and shoe shine were missing from their boxes and not replenished the next day, and neither were the complimentary water bottles. Also the iron... More

We had an upper level hotel room for four days and had the absolute best time in Paris. The service provided by all the staff and in particular the reception staff (especially HH) was beyond expectation. We will definitely stay at The Chess Hotel when we return to Paris, whenever that may be in the future.

Pros: 1) Great staff - the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. 2) Great location - located on a quiet side street just a few minutes walk from two Metro stops (Opera and Chaussée d'Antin - La Fayette), the Palais Garnier opera house, Printemps and Galeries Lafayette. 3) Great breakfast - many options, very fresh and tasty (pastries, fresh and...

We really liked this hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room service breakfast was delicious and not overly expensive. Theroom was modern and spotless. Price was reasonably for the quality and location. Oh, and they had newer wood (well, fairly convincing faux wood anyway) floors.

My husband and I went on a "sans kid" trip in June 2015 and stayed at the Chess Hotel near the Opera. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We stayed in the suite on the top floor, which was a true gem. It had the hotel's only view of the top of the Opera House and featured both... More

We enjoyed our stay at Chess. Rooms were not large, by clean and comfy. Welcome croissants were lovely. Included breakfast was perfect. Location was terrific. Excellent staff. Only problem is slow elevator. Leave extra time to get in ad out.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
