“One of the best Paris hotels I've ever stayed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

This is not only a hotel, Scribe a part of the history of Paris. Fantastic hotel in a very nice neighborhood facing The Opera. Upon arrival we were told that we have been upgraded to a larger suite. Our booking was for a junior. The staff, as you can guess, were very friendly and they gave us a great welcome. Our suite was located on the second floor which is called the Josephine Baker floor, named after Josephine, herself a legend at her time. As I said, the hotel looks like a 19th century museum with the nice bar, restaurant and a "salon de the". The name of the themed bar/restaurant is Le Lumiere which is where Lumiere Brothers showed their first film over there. Opera Metro is very close. We took advantage of the proximity of the hotel to Cafe de La Paix and had most our breakfasts over there. WIFI was free with an acceptable bandwidth. Only like all other Sofitel hotels in Europe, you have to log in every 24 hours. No sweat! In short, very nice hotel in a very nice area! Recommended.

Room Tip: We loved Suite # 272.

Staff was courteous ,beds great, room had plenty of space, location near opera, restaurants and shopping. Breakfast provided was,excellent. The only non-positive was the tub/shower entrance and exit were a challenge. Enjoyed our 5 nights.

Dear Sir,

We would like to thank you for posting a review on Trip Advisor,

We are happy to learn that you overall enjoyed your stay at the Hotel Scribe Paris.
We would also like to thank you for your comment about the bathroom, it is always good to have this kind of feedback to improve our level of service and amenities. We are terribly sorry it did disturb you. For further reservation, we do recommend you to book a room with a shower, as it still remains easier to get in and out than the bathtub.

We do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again very soon.

Best Regards,

We spent 6 nights at this hotel. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is wonderful, And the staff was so helpful with reservations, answering questions, and recommendations! The Opera Metro station is just a block away and offers quick and reliable transportation to any other tourist destination!

I had the pleasure of staying here in May . It has been a dream to have a weekend in Paris for years and I finally got to go . In my head I had a perfect image of what and where the hotel should be lucky enough my dreams came true . Before we arrived we emailed the hotel to recommend a restaurant for our second night stay and to book into there own restaurant "la lumiere" on the first night . They could not have been more helpful and we decided to book a restaurant called "goust" which the hotel completely took care of. They hotel is in a perfect location walking distance from every major tourist spot it did take us about 50 mins to walk to the tower but what an amazing experience everywhere you look there is paris's outstanding beauty and history . Our meal at the restaurant at the hotel was fantastic really unique flavours and good selection at first I thought it was expensive but everything in Paris is expensive so in comparison it really wasn't that bad . We even ordered room service breakfast and we were brought a feast . I would recommend "goust" as a restaurant too just a minute walk from the hotel its a mitchelm star experience it was expensive but I would say as an experience worth every penny .. I would definitely recommend scribe and hope I get to return again one day

great location. nice staff. great breakfast included in price made to order eggs and a large buffet. fresh water in room provided. location allowed us to walk everywhere. wife loved the bed and may buy the sheets for our home. Only little thing is that it was a bit hard to get into shower as the tub was pretty high. but we would definitely go back and stay again - hope we have the opportunity. booked through hotwire so price was good but would have been fine paying normal rates

Stayed 4 nights, in may. The location is great, near everything. If the weather is good, you can walk almost everywhere in Paris. There're bus, sub and RER stops near the hotel. The hotel is huge, so the service is not the best, but it's ok. The staff was very nice with us (a little words in french helps a lot), the breakfast was excelent. The rooms are very big and confortable. We didn't had dinner in the restaurants, used de service room, which was very good and fast. The price is expensive, but Paris is not a cheap place. When I come back to Paris (I hope soon), this hotel will be a place to stay.

well in paris you got cheap hotels where you knock your head on the ceiling and fall of your bed, you have to pay to be in a decent place, rooms are fine, large, clean but the staff is a bit aloof, not noisy even with an heavy traffic, very good position next to everything
