Scribe has a fantastic location, minutes from the Opera. Sofitel service standarts are also met, perfect concierge, smooth check in. I will definitely come back. It's worth your money, believe me. Paris hotels are usually horrible (tiny rooms, very unfriendly service).

I booked the hotel to enjoy Paris a couple of days before flying home, as a former employee of Sofitel, this hotel was held in the highest regard for service and style and we always wanted to stay there.
Upon arrival, the Hotel was under some renovation works so there was lots scaffolding over the building (this happens, no dramas) the door staff were not very welcoming almost begrudgingly taking our bags from the taxi.
Reception only had one person behind the desk and at least six people waiting, two of these walked away as they must been waiting so long. when finally we were checking in (approx 30mins after arriving) we were told about room etc, we would be in the old Jockey Club side of the hotel, high ceilings, spacious very light airy! Upon arrival to room it was far from what was 'sold' to us. The room was quite small and tired, I’m 6ft tall and I could touch the ceiling without effort! the room looked out on a decked area and about four other rooms so you had to have to block out curtains closed pretty all the time so no natural light, the bathroom was standard, no dramas except the shower screen did not seal properly so when you shower everything on the floor bathroom was sitting in a pool of water.
one afternoon we had drinks in the Lounge Bar, upon arrival we were seated and given menus, (there were three tables of guests in the bar and two maybe three tables in the Dining area and approx six staff) the staff member came back and took our drinks order, from there we waited almost twenty minutes for he drinks to be served!! we were pretty relaxed at this stage and didn't worry, But after thirty minutes of waiting for any staff member to acknowledge our existence, one finally came and cleared our empty glasses and we order another which was promptly served by the only staff member who knew what customer service is! Sadly after serving our drinks he left and we then sat and chatted for probably close to an hour and our empty glasses just sat there! My wife and got up left and not one staff acknowledged us!
The only saving grace to Hotel was the concierge Heleana, who tried her best to sort things out but I think the list was getting to long (I could easily keep going with this list, Housekeeping, Tea Room, etc) and at no point were approached or contacted by any manager or guest relations staff!
Even since returning home I was sent a guest relations evaluation which I promptly filled out including everything that had happened and still I have not had a response from the Hotel.
After having worked for Sofitel and knowing the training they provide as a 'Luxury Brand'
This Hotel was definitely not Luxurious. 5 Star is in the service you provide; sadly The Scribe has lost it's way!

Sofitel Scribe is very well located in Paris, near Place Vendome, there is a very good hair salon, right beside the hotel and it's near good restaurants and stores. You can walk to Louvre or Champs Elysee!
The rooms have a good size and are very confortable and the bathroom in my room was big, which is a nice surprise in Paris.

Dear guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience.

I am delighted to read you have enjoyed the location of the hotel. We are indeed in the heart of the City of Lights, which makes it perfect for shopping and/or sightseeing.
Hotel Scribe Paris, the originally "Jockey Club" Headquarter, has undergone various renovations since it has first opened. In 2007, Jacques Grange, the Interior Designer has restyled the rooms, therefore offering greater space and comfort to our guests.

It will be our pleasure to welcome you again in the very near future.

Warm wishes from Paris,

Yet another Sofitel run hotel that ticks all right the boxes for hospitality, superb accommodation, immaculate but welcoming comfortable surroundings, excellent food. and most importantly that remarkable ability of making every guest feel unique and special.

The hotel is well situated near The Paris Opera House, in the close vicinity of some of Paris's finest shopping emporiums, boulevards and streets.

The Lumiere Restaurant served high standard cuisine in comfortable surroundings, and the tea room at the front of the hotel offered the most scrummy pastries seen for many a year, as well as a fair old cup of tea.

We will be back!

Stayed at Hotel Scribe for 4nights - lovely hotel and excellent service especially by the concierge staff who happen to be all ladies. They arranged Disneyland and the Louvre and thanks to their advice, avoided all the long queues!

This hotel is very popular - foyer can be very crowded and bellboys too busy to attend to you.

Overall, a very good hotel, has excellent staff who attended to my children very well and is overall a most pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Families - ask for connecting room.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to share your experience.

Coming to Paris is often synonym of great discoveries. Whenever it is doable, our Concierge team would provide with tickets to few of the most popular local attractions. No one wants to wait in line hours while on holiday!
Our Concierge team is the only one in Paris composed exclusively of ladies. And they also are Golden Keys concierge, which is by far the best recognition in the industry. Some of them have been working at the Hotel Scribe Paris for more than 20 years, making them experts in the City of Lights.
In the hope of welcoming you again in the near future.

Best regards,

Nadjet B.
