Very happy with our stay here at Scribe. Don't know if it's just French but the service is at you would expect - a bit snobby and no greater detail to special occasions.
Rooms are spacious and the cleaning service is perfect.
The location is also a major plus because it's so close to Lafayette, the Opera and other great sights in the city and yet it's quiet at night.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your comments. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us at the Hotel Scribe. Indeed, the location is really good, in the heart of Paris ! The opera area was reconverted during the 19th century by Baron Haussmann who decided to create large avenues and typical parisian façades. It is a real pleasure to walk around in this area.

Looking forward to welcoming you again soon at the Hotel Scribe Paris, we thank you again for your comments.

Best Regards,

Audrey Laroque

I've tried to make the title of this review adequate. I'm glad to see the reviews of the Scribe still consistent with our experiences. We stayed at the Scribe in 2002. To this day, I have never stayed in a hotel that compares, and believe me, I've stayed in many 5* hotels. What makes the Scribe special? Attention. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a prince or princess and staying at a hotel in Paris? Ever wonder what it would be like to have service where everything you wanted was provided, nearly before you even asked for it. The concierge team was exceptional. Not only were we treated with perfect service at the Scribe, but at every restaurant and club we visited while in Paris. This concierge team must maintain an excellent reputation with every restaurant we visited (Jules Verne, Hotel Ritz, Moulin Rouge). We were met at our cab, escorted to our tables, treated with amazing hospitality. When we go back to Paris, I wouldn't think of another hotel. And I recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Paris. Particularly if you're looking to create a romantic trip for someone special. BTW, we were married two years later.

I was staying recently and came back for a new break in paris. Best location for sure but also a fantastic concierge team, please note they are only women and 100% of their recommendation and help are fabulous. The comfort of the sleep is exceptionnal with a great bed and a total soundproofing from outside but also inside.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street. You can enjoy the animation of Paris streets without any noise.

Dear Guest,

We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay at the Hotel Scribe ! We shared your compliments with our Concierge team who thank you very much for having mentioned them. Indeed, they are only women : the Chef Concierge Emmanuelle, who is Head Seretary of the "Clés d'Or", makes it a point of principle !

Concerning the comfort of the bed, it is due to the Sofitel standard "MyBed" : it consists in a double mattress which makes the bed both soft and firm.

Again, thank you for your comments, as our guests feedback is very important to us.

Best Regards,

Stayed at the Scribe in February and had an excellent stay. Hotel was situated just a block or so from the Roissybus stop from/to Charles to Gaulle which meant no great walking or extra travel after a tiring journey. The Hop-on Hop-off bus was also located here.

Check-in staff were very friendly and welcoming and gave detailed information on the facilities the hotel had to offer. Corridors and rooms were tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Housekeeping were generally good but on one occasion completely forgot about the tea/coffee and didn't even change the dirty cups. However, this was rectified extremely quickly so I won't make a big deal of it.

We enjoyed the Sauna / Jacuzzi on one occasion and it was excellent and very therapeutic after a long day walking around Paris . The only thing is you need to call down before you go to make sure it is vacant as it is not public.

Bar area had a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere and the staff were very attentive. It is rather expensive though, even by Paris standards.

Taken individually, nearly all the major attractions are walking distance from the hotel, but if you only have a few days it is much easier to take public transport or the hop-on hop-off tour bus.

All in all we had a great trip to Paris and would thoroughly recommend Hotel Scribe

What I like with this hotel is that if you take the bus from Roissy CDG, it take 45min and stop next to the hotel at Opera.
Perfect central position, staff are very good, food is good, rooms are very well appointed, everything you need is there.
You have plenty of good restaurants around and not too pricy, as well as some cafe/bar for the morning if you don't want to spend a fortune for your breakfast.

Room Tip: ask for courtyard room for a good sleep.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your comments on Trip Advisor.
Indeed, our central position is definitely one of our strenghts, and you have well noticed that ! It allows people to have a nice walk around, go to Galeries Lafayette for shopping or enjoy a good restaurant. Again, thank you for your compliments, it is always a real pleasure for us to read such laudatory comments.

We had booked a birthday celebration in Paris, but this was cancelled with two days notice by the blunders of the booking agent. I phoned Hotel Scribe who solved the situation on the spot.
We stay in many 5* hotels around the world, but Scribe is outstanding. The staff could not do enough for us, and no detail was overlooked.
Many thanks and congratulations to you, Hotel Scribe !
