“Everything you hope it will be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

I had the pleasure of staying here in May . It has been a dream to have a weekend in Paris for years and I finally got to go . In my head I had a perfect image of what and where the hotel should be lucky enough my dreams came true . Before we arrived we emailed the hotel to recommend a restaurant for our second night stay and to book into there own restaurant "la lumiere" on the first night . They could not have been more helpful and we decided to book a restaurant called "goust" which the hotel completely took care of. They hotel is in a perfect location walking distance from every major tourist spot it did take us about 50 mins to walk to the tower but what an amazing experience everywhere you look there is paris's outstanding beauty and history . Our meal at the restaurant at the hotel was fantastic really unique flavours and good selection at first I thought it was expensive but everything in Paris is expensive so in comparison it really wasn't that bad . We even ordered room service breakfast and we were brought a feast . I would recommend "goust" as a restaurant too just a minute walk from the hotel its a mitchelm star experience it was expensive but I would say as an experience worth every penny .. I would definitely recommend scribe and hope I get to return again one day

great location. nice staff. great breakfast included in price made to order eggs and a large buffet. fresh water in room provided. location allowed us to walk everywhere. wife loved the bed and may buy the sheets for our home. Only little thing is that it was a bit hard to get into shower as the tub was pretty high. but we would definitely go back and stay again - hope we have the opportunity. booked through hotwire so price was good but would have been fine paying normal rates

Stayed 4 nights, in may. The location is great, near everything. If the weather is good, you can walk almost everywhere in Paris. There're bus, sub and RER stops near the hotel. The hotel is huge, so the service is not the best, but it's ok. The staff was very nice with us (a little words in french helps a lot), the breakfast was excelent. The rooms are very big and confortable. We didn't had dinner in the restaurants, used de service room, which was very good and fast. The price is expensive, but Paris is not a cheap place. When I come back to Paris (I hope soon), this hotel will be a place to stay.

well in paris you got cheap hotels where you knock your head on the ceiling and fall of your bed, you have to pay to be in a decent place, rooms are fine, large, clean but the staff is a bit aloof, not noisy even with an heavy traffic, very good position next to everything

Room Tip: high floors

The Scribe gives you that real feel of luxury from the minute you park. Everything is very beautiful and though only having booked a superior room, this was actually rather large. The location is spot on, close to everything you would want to see when visiting Paris. The downside is obviously that luxury does not come for free.

Great location in Opera district but within walking distance of most attractions. Food and ambience of hotel was good with nice comfortable lounges in foyer. A easy walk to the open top bus stop which is a great way to get an overview of this charming city.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front of the hotel are quieter but have limited views.

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.
