Friendly staff, clean rooms, in a great spot for exploring the city - perfect for a city break. The Chess Hotel is just a ten minute walk to the Louvre and right in the heart of the designer shopping district. The staff were friendly, helpful and they all spoke English. Our standard rooms were clean and bright with a very... More

Really close to all areas, very clean and tidy, good size room and bathroom by Paris standards. Breakfast was good and you can get a drink in the reception area if you wish. There is a smoking terrace also.

I love this hotel! It is a small property but it is absolutely the best value for the price. I've stayed there three times for business travel. The Superior Rooms are small (average for Europe) but for the location and price you cannot find any better. The Deluxe rooms are much more spacious. The hotel is newly renovated with comfortable...

Excellent hotel, perfectly located, beds very comfortable. the staff was mostly very friendly and helpful but some of them weren't up to the 4 star grade. Any way, for a one night business trip it was perfect

My husband and I stayed at the Chess Hotel for 4 nights as part of our mini-moon. The hotel was around a 20 minute straight forward walk from Charles De Gaulle. The metro would have been quicker but was nice to take in the surroundings. Loved the secure feel of the hotel as you need a pass card to enter... More

Hotel is well located near Opera and hence public transportation. Interior design is modern and well done. Rooms are however too small to feel comfortable... Great rain shower and WIFI. Buffet breakfast is nice

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)
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
