The hotel is very well located, a block from the Opera where you have several metro lines and the area is very nice to walk. It is also close to the Gare du Nord if you arrive by train or by RER B from the airport. The rooms were very well appointed and of good size and the breakfast was very nice. Prior to my arrival I contacted the hotel with several requests and I want to congratulate their manager Pierre-Louis for all his professionalism, always responding and attending very quickly to my requests.
Intesting little hotel in a good location. Clean and spacious rooms. The Entrance to the hotel is on the first floor accessed by a single lift, which all could do with some refurbishment as it looks very tired and shabby. Otherwise a nice experience with helpful friendly staff .
We stayed for 3 nights in April with our 4 month-old daughter. The hotel was really well-placed close to The Metro for easy access from CDG. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Davide, and then the Manager, who went out of their way to get a room ready early for us owing to having a baby. The room itself was great, a lot bigger than we expected and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. All of the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Will certainly be coming back.
We stayed here for a full week. The location is excellent. 10 Minutes walk to Galleries Fayette. There is an excellent vegan restaurant right next door. We had breakfast there many mornings also the Hotel breakfast is not too bad. The staff were so helpful and speak excellent english. You have to take an elevator from the street level to go to the main lobby to check in. The rooms were not too bad for size and housekeeping was incredible. However there is so much dust in the room, i guess from the age of the hotel that if you peek under the bed you will see many dust bunnies. All in all, it was a pleasant stay at the Chess Hotel.
My daughter & I visited Paris over the Easter holiday & chose the Chess hotel as it gave an impression of character & comfortable accommodation. The location of the Chess Hotel is perfect. Train stations are easily reached & an excellent variety of restaurants, bars & cafes. Plenty of department stores also close by. Our room was soundproofed when the window was closed as the noise from nearby streets can be loud ! The staff were hospitable & very helpful. Not sure if face towels are standard in French hotels but we had to ask every day for those & I got the impression that they were not obliged to provide them. However, plenty of towels & other supplies in the bathroom. Not keen on the wash basin design & water took a long time to drain away. Great shower though & nice hot water. Our room was comfortable with adequate storage. The floor was not always cleaned well with dust visible sometimes. Pleasant breakfast in the dining room every morning. Always spare seating available. Food & drinks/beverages were most enjoyable but we needed to ask for plates & cups every day. However, the staff attended to this at once. Internet connection needs improving.…
The room I stayed in was on the 5th floor, facing the street. It was a spacious room (for a Paris hotel) with a small balcony, very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The cleanliness was excellent and the amenities sufficient (bath robe, slippers, beaty kit, shampoo, foam bath and body cream). The only problem I encountared was with the breakfast which was served by 7am but actually it was being set up then, so the hot food was actually cold at the time, and sometimes not enough yet. In general, the breakfast could do some improvement in regards of options. The location of the hotel, very close to the Opera is really convenient.
Stayed at L’hotel Chess fora long city break weekend. Comfortable rooms, good facilities, clean, great breakfast selection, super friendly and helpful staff. The location is perfect - so central and within easy reach for all areas on foot or metro. Will definitely stay again and would recommend.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel was very clean and comfortable with a friendly welcome and extremely helpful staff. Accommodation was good and well equipped. The hotel is in an excellent location in the city with easy access to the main attractions. All in all, it was good value for money. Will definitely consider returning.
Excelent attention from all the staff. Specially our friends from the front desk and the kitchen. Really appreciatte. Feels like home. Also the room service and the cleaning was extemelly care. Location can be more useful. Every think perfext.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to friends looking to stay in this area of Paris. Even though the rooms are somewhat small, the decor and cleanliness make up for the room size. The beds were comfortable, the rooms and bathrooms were clean and well looked after. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the breakfast was good too in terms of quality and quantity.
