Checkin: very efficient and friendly Its a boutique hotel and catering to mainly business travellers and couples... Hardly noticed any family with children during both my visits. Room: cozy and inviting but found to be bit small especially the bathroom. Upgraded toiletries from Hermes. Breakfast spread was sufficient but I found intercontinental better in variety and service. Also tried the... More

Everyone we spoke to at the concierge desk was extremely helpful. Because we had never been in Paris before we had many questions and sometimes asked questions more than once about transportation. The breakfasts were bountiful and delicious. Stay here it is a great location and great staff.

Very nice hotel with big rooms and large bathrooms. Perfectly situated in the city only a mile from the Eiffel Tower. Great for American travelers visiting Paris for the first time. Hotel staff speaks English very well so there was no language barrier.

The Lumiere brothers, who invented film, started out here. The hotel made an appearance in two of the books I read while on the trip! Historic romanticism aside, this location was great, within walking distance of many major sites, like the Opera Garnier, the Madeline, Place Vendome, Tuillerie Gardens, Fragonard perfume museum, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, metro stations, train stations, designer...

If you want to stay near Galerie Lafayette / Opera House in Paris, you can't go wrong at the Scribe. The rooms are ok - heck, you'll spend more time outside anyway - I am assuming that you'll take in the summer.

We came in February and stayed for a week or so. The beds are called "My bed" (the company name, apparently) and are so comfortable!

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A long tradition of excellence in the art of living awaits you in this grand 19th-century building. An emblem of Parisian life, Hotel Scribe Paris was originally the home of the very aristocratic Jockey Club. It became a hotel of legend, a stage of modernity on which the cinema was born, a favourite place of artists and celebrities. The Scribe keeps that legacy alive today. In its elegant rooms and suites, its public and reception areas, new generations of personalities are even now adding chapters to the hotel's history. ... more   less
