My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Scribe while traveling with a Tauck Tour. I would highly recommend this hotel. The location is excellent (near the Opera House and beautiful department stores), the breakfast buffet is outstanding and the beds, comforters and pillows delightful. When in Paris, I would stay at the Hotel Scribe Paris without hesitation.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for writing a review about your parisian stay.
In 2007, the Hotel Scribe Paris went under a full refurbishment to widen the rooms, which were beautifully furnished by Jacques Grange.
The "Mybed" beds are exclusively designed for Sofitel; they are the perfect balance between softness and firmness. And to make the whole experience even smoother, we provide our guests with scented Hermes products.

I would like to thank you on behalf of our team for your comments which made our day.
We look forward to welcoming you very soon.

Kind regards,

Nadjet Bennaceur

For sightseeing purposes this hotel is ideally situated in the Opera District. The staff were very helpful and accommodating meeting any needs we had very quickly. We were fortunate to receive an upgrade in our accommodation which was superb.
The only criticism being that we were a party of three sharing a room and all facilities provided in the room were for two people e.g. towels, cups etc. Whilst room service were very quick to resolve we did have to remind them each day!!

I have been to Paris dozens of times and have stayed at a variety of 5 and 4 star hotels and I can honestly say that this hotel was excellent. It is well situated (just steps from Gallerie Lafayette on Boulevard Hausemann) and a 5 minute walk from the Place Vendome, and the sights of the 1st Arrondisment and quite comfortable with an understated luxury. The hotel has a fantastic history and has hosted ilustrious guests such as Marcel Proust and Josephine Baker (both of whom have floors named and styled after them). It was also the place where the Lumiere Brothers showed the first motion picture ever!

The room was quite spacious and well appointed and the beds, with soft feather mattress toppers, down comforters and 1000 thread count sheets were insanely comfortable and luxurious (which is actually quite hard to find in Europe where even at most 5 star hotels beds tend to be rather hard and spasely appointed). The only real problem with my room was the size of the clothes closet. My closet was less than 2 ft wide and had virtually no room to hang anything. I was there for 3 days and had to keep most of my clothes in my suitcase because I had no place for them. So, if you have a lot of clothes or are coming for a long trip this could be an inconvenience.

The breakfast buffet is the basement, and had most everything one would want, though the service was a bit haphazard (during my stay they routinely ran out of drinking glasses, croissants and other items).

My final piece of advice is NOT to dine in the hotel restaurant, Le Lumiere. We went on our last night because it was a Sunday and many options were closed and the food was overpriced and absolutely horrendous. You'd be better of dining at a McDonalds than dining here. It was truly that bad. But, of course, you are in Paris, so why would you ever dine in a hotel restaurant anyway when you have SO many magnificent options surrounding you.

Dear client,

Thank you for sharing your experience.

The Hotel Scribe Paris is located in the heat of Paris; which is a very vibrant neighborhood. It was built at the same time as the famous Opera Garnier by Baron Haussman. It was turned to a hotel, sixty years after its completion; therefore providing an uncommon layout.

The “MyBed” beds as you have rightfully mentioned, are very comfortable. They were exclusively designed for Sofitel Hotels.

Allow me to express my sincerest apologies have you not been satisfied with our restaurant. The Lumière restaurant is rewarded with one star at the Michelin Guide and I am stricken to read this has not been a good experience to you.

We would be happy to welcome you again at the Hotel Scribe Paris and offer you a Magnifique experience.

Kind regards,

Nadjet Bennaceur

this has been one of the best Paris hotels I stayed so far. However, I think the price was also expensive (EUro 500plus) so if you do not mind the price, you will not end up being disappointed.

On another hand, I have also stayed in very close hotels that were 1/4 of the price of this one and the quality difference was not 4 times.

All in all, this is a nice hotel, but perhaps if you are willing to pay more than Euro500plus, then there could be other nice ones too. I can, the very least say that this one will not disappoint you, if you do not mind the price.

Dear guest,

Merci for writing a review about your stay at the Hotel Scribe Paris.

I am delighted to read you think of our establishment as one of the best in Paris.
The high rates are due to the extremely busy season; many fairs, exhibitions, shows and so on take place in Paris over the fall period.

Whenever you plan another trip to Paris, please feel free to contact us the earliest so we can provide you with competitive rates.

Sincerely,

Nadjet Bennaceur

stayed 1 night, after arrival at hotel / room, found some itrms wanting. 1. direction at floor level was wrong, sign pointed right when room was actually on the left side. 2. showerhead was damaged and affected the water pressure, extremely frustrating. 3. shower area not built logically, water splashes as shower is combined with bathtub. 4. tv remote was missing.
