“A jewel in the heart of Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

We stayed at the Scribe for five nights in early September to celebrate several special events. The hotel, with its elegance and warmth, exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully appointed with fresh roses throughout the public areas and also in our room, which was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The entire staff was extremely courteous and helpful, especially Aurianne, Louis, Quentin, Audrey and Suki. We were able to walk to many of the sites of Paris (the Place Vendome, Opera, Champs Elysees and the Jardin des Tuileries),and the hotel is in an area of excellent bistros, shopping and the Metro. The Scribe restaurant, Le Lumiere, featured a French cuisine and our dinner and service were superb. We were also pleasantly surprised with the extensive breakfast buffet. The hotel Scribe will definitely be our choice when we return to Paris.

As others have said, this hotel is in an excellent position. Along the road from smart restaurants eg cafe de la paix or local bistros. Handy for shops + attractions and the tourist bus which has an office and starting point round the corner. The concierge at the hotel was very helpful in advising us, which bus to take. Bed was huge + very comfortable and room was quiet - excellent for a good nights sleep!! Breakfast was super too. Wi fi worked (no extra cost) and aircon was efficient.
Only negative was cost of drinks at the bar - 7 euro's for a diet coke and 21 euro's for a cocktail - a bit steep!

The position of this hotel speaks for itself. Perhaps the rooms are a tad small but that is what you get in Haussmann buildings. What stood out for us were the friendly and helpful staff. This was true for all who we dealt with and it made a real difference to our stay. Breakfast were good and plenty of choice.

With its central location, this hotel proved to be a great base for several days in Paris. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and included a top-notch Sofitel bed, bathroom with bath and shower, and separate toilet. Window glazing makes for a quiet stay.
Besides the restaurant, meals can also be eaten in the bar area, which adjoins the dining room on the ground floor. There also is a lounge area and a tea room.
Famous Paris stores Galeries Lafayette and Printemps are nearby, and there are plenty of bistros in the area, giving ample eating options, besides the hotel.
There is a Metro station just a short walk away, so the hotel is well-located as a base from which to explore Paris.

We stayed here with a tour group for 5 days. The staff was very courteous and helpful. We were here to see Paris so didn't spend much time at the hotel. We looked forward to a great breakfast buffet to get us started for the day. Unfortunately, the buffet was the worst I have had in 6 hotels I have stayed at in Europe. Service was poor, took forever to get someone to the table to get a cup of coffee. Food was not hot, continually ran out of eggs, bacon was barely cooked, potatoes were little more than a French version to triangular tater-tots, also cold. Pastries were good but overall the breakfast was a great disappointment.

We were going to a conference in Toulouse, and decided on a few days in Paris before. So we arrived at Hotel Scribe at about 10:00 a.m. on a Wednesday morning, following the overnight flight. Although they could not get us in our room right away (they had been full the night before), they offered to hold our luggage for us until they could provide the room, a few hours later.

We then had tea in their tea room--very large variety of teas, though the pastries felt a tad stale. The next day, when we had breakfast (included), the pastries were divine!

The room was very well appointed, and was spacious. We did not hear noise from the street, even though we were close to the busy intersection. The bed comfortable. The staff very helpful, with restaurant suggestions that always were terrific. Location was great--easy to walk to many of the things we wanted to do.

We would definitely stay there again! One caution--if you go to breakfast late, you'll find that they may have run out of some things. But it was very good!
