We originally got booked at what was supposed to be a 4-star hotel right around the corner from the Scribe and it was terrible. The AC didn't work, it smelled like smoke, and the bathroom had terrible yellow buzzing lights.
I couldn't get in touch with our agent or the booking company, so I literally walked around frantically looking for any hotel that looked half-way decent. The Scribe was my saving grace. I saw the beautiful hotel around the corner and went in and asked for a room. They were very accommodating. The room had a great view and a great bathroom. We loved the spa as well as the other hotel amenities. The breakfast as well as all other dining options at the hotel were very good... a true 5-star establishment.
Lastly, the hotel is in a great spot with plenty of great restaurants and attractions close by. I will plan to stay at the scribe next time I head back to Paris as this was one of the better hotels I have ever stayed at.
