“Hotel Scribe was great for visiting Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We were very happy with our choice of the Scribe which was one of the several hotels offered through Costco. The service was excellent, fast and friendly. The room may have been small by U.S. standards but was very comfortable, well-appointed and with nice amenities, and quiet. We had a Luxury Room. Connection to wi-fi was easy. The mattress was good and didn't aggrevate a bad back. The location was good with restauarants nearby. The Louvre was a pleasant 15 minute walk, and a similar walk to the tour bus location on Rue des Pyramides. The main stop for the Hop on/Hop off bus was a few blocks away. The breakfast buffet service was personal and outstanding. The hotel is an older, which charm and character. We would recommend and stay again.

Room Tip: Our room on first floor facing the interior courtyard was nice and quiet.

Well received on arrival. Porters and baggage men very helpful.
Had requested rooms on same floor which confirmed by phone. Corrective action needed to be taken but carried out elegantly and without fuss.
Good barman. Dinner satisfactory. Service and attitude professional and helpful.

I am definitely not a Sofitel fan due to the inconsistency and lack of imagination that this brand is showing. But.. this is something else. Called simply Hotel Scribe as the street address and obviously omitting the Sofitel from the main title( most probably for the reasons above) this is a true good boutique hotel in the heart of the city.
Perfect location, good room size ( in Paris) , attentive service. Value for money!

Its a good hotel for a weekend. You can get to so many of the sights in Paris,on foot and for me that is the best way to do it. The hotel is fine although I did find the bed didn't suit my back. It is typical I think of old style French beds with fluffy down filled mattress cover, duvet and pillows. After one sleepless night I found they had a pillow ordering service .... but the pillow I wanted wasn't available! I ended up using two folded towels and that was fine for me. Otherwise, yes the service at breakfast was a bit slow but the food was lovely.

Dear Guest,

It is always a great pleasure to read some feedback from our clients, as it gives us the opportunity to improve our level of service everyday. Indeed, the location is perfect as you said, you can go everywhere by foot really easily and it is a real pleasure to walk around in the area any time. The Opera is a fabulous building and the famous rue de la Paix shows luxurious and prestigious store fronts. However, we are sorry to read that you did not appreciate our Sofitel "MyBed". "MyBed" is our brand concept which consists in two mattresses one upon the other for a better comfort., a sensation of both firmness and softness. Pillows and duvet are made of feather, or synthetic in case of allergies.
You were not able to choose your pillow when you came and we are terribly sorry for this inconvenience. You can be sure that we will do our best to avoid this kind of material problems in the future.
We hope that you will give us the opportunity next time to show you the real Sofitel comfort at night !
Best regards,
Audrey Laroque

Le Scribe is extremely well situated and close to lots of interesting sights. The room was larger than your standard European room. Old world charm with high ceilings. However, the mattress was lumpy ( the bedding was nice). The service was lousy. Breakfast was included and the "podium" girl was more concerned that I had proof of payment than ensuring that I had food. After 10 minutes of sitting at my table, I wasn't given coffee, a fork or a glass. Zero. Nothing. The food was a buffet. Nothing great but for 35 euros (nearly $45) you expect something. I expect more for 650 euros a night. My company booked me for 2 nights. Again, convenient location and some architectural charm but horrific service.

Dear Madam,
It is always a pleasure to read from our guests, however I am disappointed to read that you did not experience a real Five Star Service at breakfast. Be sure that this is not the kind of service we intend to deliver and we will make sure that this kind of treatment will not happen again. Comments such as yours really heps us to improve our standards of service, so thank you for sharing your opinion. We hope to see you again next time you come to Paris. Try breakfast again, and you can be sure you will find it to be the best one in Paris !
