Easy walk from Opera stop. Soothing music piped throughout with a modern, sleek look. Hotel staff is friendly with nice smiles and great English (though they put up with my shaky French). Water, fruit, and pastries available in the lobby. Computer available. Rooms are very nice, HD tv with channels of various languages. Free wifi access for numerous devices. Shower was amazing with a rain drop shower head available and wonderful amenities. Hotel is VERY secure--you have to be buzzed in the front door and then a card to access the elevators to the rooms. Breakfast was exceptional--FRESH juices and high end food options though a tad pricy at 22 Euro (so try and get it included in your room rate). Also very nice option--they give you access to a local, high-end gym in the neighborhood if you want to workout.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Chess Hotel opened in 2014 in one of the most prestigious areas of Paris. Located close to the Opera, La Madeleine, the Grands Magasins department stores, and La Bourse, the Paris stock exchange, it is a unique establishment in many ways. Firstly, it astonishes with its compelling aesthetics. It boasts an original design by Gilles and Boissier, which makes striking use of beautiful materials such as linen, oak and Carrara marble. It features the bold and innovative artwork of Cyprien Chabert. From the curvaceous furniture and quality fabrics to the hues of the wood and the shape of the fixtures, no detail was left to chance. A harmonious and elegant decor has been created that is like no other. While chic and refined, the Chess Hotel is also distinguished by its welcoming and cosy atmosphere, which transforms each room into a true haven. The heart of the city beats just beyond our doorstep. Yet somehow the hotel seems miles away from any hustle and bustle. Travellers are invited to enjoy absolute relaxation. A game of chess by the fire or a quiet hour's reading on the inner terrace. Perhaps an evening spent in blissful privacy amidst the original decor and intimate atmosphere of your room. After long hours of work, or a busy day's sightseeing, you will appreciate the calm and gentle ambience of the Chess Hotel. The Chess Hotel is also exceptional in terms of facilities and services. It is a place distinguished by our efficient, yet warm and gracious, hospitality. It is a place that transcends routine. We are proud that our guests are so much more to us than simply clients. It is a charmingly friendly hotel which places an accommodating and helpful team at the disposal of all guests. We are pleased to provide personalised services and thoughtful recommendations for discovering the treasures of Paris, allowing you to venture off the beaten paths of the capital. ... more less
