Delightful boutique hotel. We stayed here with our teenage/ young adult family to celebrate a birthday in Paris. Brand new, stylishly decorated rooms and lobby/eating area. Good location near Opera metro. Really helpful friendly staff. Excellent breakfast.

It's not easy to find a modern hotel next to the Opera and the Galeries Lafayette (I've worked in the area for 3 years). Le Chess is probably one of the best in its category and has everything for an enjoyable stay. -Italian shower and spacious bathroom -comfortable bed -working Wifi -wooden floor, no carpet, much cleaner! -large plasma screen...
