We are just finishing a three night stay here and would recommend the Scribe to anyone who is considering such. First, this review is a public letter of thanks to the staff here who helped us. Honestly, we are never the easiest of customers due to our extreme fussiness over rooms but the guest relations staff, Louis and Geoffrey, were patient, courteous and helpful and we found a wonderful room.
The location of the hotel is faultless. It is within walking distance of the Opera, the Louvre, Vendome and the Galeries Lafayette and the metro is very close. It is also surrounded by good cafes, bistros and restaurants.
The design of the hotel is a refreshing change to the usual "Let's pretend we're in a belle epoque costume drama" theme. It plays a clever and thoughtful balance between it's Lumiere brothers connection, Art Deco chic and modern taste.
Didn't try too much food but can recommend the bread and pastry basket on the in room dining menu, which, if you don't have inclusive breakfast, at EUR 13 will keep you going til lunch.
Overall, well satisfied.
