The Chess Hotel is just round the corner from L'Opéra on Rue Helder, therefore very handy for getting the Roissybus to CDG and for the Opera metro which gets you very easily to all of Paris. The room I stayed in was spacious with a large comfortable bed and a bathroom with a fabulous shower, lots of space and ample... More

I couldn't recommend this hotel more, the staff were so friendly and helpful with regards to dinner reservations etc and everything was within walking distance!! What I liked most about this place was that they gave you complimentary use of a smartphone for the duration of your stay and considering our phones didn't work abroad, the 4G was an absolute...

I stayed at The Chess Hotel for a weekend with my husband in Paris in May 2016. This hotel was by far the best I've experienced in France, and one of the better surprises in Europe, period, and I'd definitely stay again. LOCATION: The hotel is very convenient, a quick walk to major sites, shopping, and dining. We walked all... More

My wife and I have just returned after spending 2 nights as an annivesary getaway and couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay. From the moment we arrived we were treated politely and courteously by all members of staff who attended any needs we had. Our room was on the same side as the entrance which meant we... More

Stayed here for one night while in Paris with the other half. Would defiantly stay again and wish could of stayed longer as location was good. Small and compact but perfect at the same time. Clean, beds were amazing and staff were great too from start to finish.

The Chess Hotel was a pleasant surprise, from the lovely smell in the entrance way to the spacious (for Paris) rooms. The location is great (strolling distance to the Louvre) and the rooms are a decent size for Paris (although you may struggle if you had lots of luggage) with comfortable beds and spotlessly clean bathrooms with rain head showers....

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.

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
