I found a home away from home in Paris! Location - you can't beat it, service is unbelievable, food is superb, amenities are wonderful, hospitality is amazing! For those who love history: Sergey Dyagelev, Ernest Hemingway, and Marcel Prust stayed here; Lumiere brothers did the very first cinematography show here. The name of this hotel is Scribe!

Scribe tells it is a lux hotel. Ok?! In my opinion it is missing the final touch. The rooms are a bit old, bathroom is not so big and my shower worked when it wanted, but the room was clean. The lobby area is like a nice living room and I liked it. When I spoke about my room, I... More

I stay in this hotel at least one week a year, many times more often (this year is was two weeks). Usually it is wonderful, however, this November the stay was a nightmare. During six days, one day did not go by where there was not a problem with the hotel. Wrong room upon arrival, TV did not work, lights... More

Room is big considering Parisian standards and clean. Got a king size bed room facing inside courtyard. Check in process and bell service was quick and attentive. Excellent location, 5 mins walk to Opera House, Lafayette and Printemps. 15 mins walk to louvre area. Less than 10 euros taxi ride to Eiffel Tower and Champs. Always have taxis available just...

Historical and beautiful. The take over by Sofitel kept the place amazingly up in time. A bit pricy but that's what you are looking for here. The location and the staff were amazing. Breakfast room was a bit old but the service and the staff was great. Such in historical place full of memories. Loved it.!

We love Hotel Scribe because it is historic, but still modern (ie not falling apart!) with lovely facilities. Its location near to Opera, Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, not to mention Madelene is ideal for us.

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.

A long tradition of excellence in the art of living awaits you in this grand 19th-century building.
