We prefer staying in the 1st for touring and shopping...ease of walking almost everywhere. The staff is just the best; bed was very comfy; wonderful linens. Bathroom was immaculate. ( loved...

As most of the reviews indicate, this is a very nice hotel centrally located to sights and the two major department stores in Paris. I walked to the Louvre almost every day. The room was very nice ( I stayed in a standard room). Lovely bathroom and very clean. I tried room service which was very efficient. Overall, I thought...

We have stayed here 5+ times and the first 2 visits were probably the best. Our recent visits have resulted in a room change each time. Our beds have been uncomfortable or in one case the room was just dark and dingy with lots of wear and tear. At an airport Hilton we'd have just settled in but the Scribe...

The Scribe is a rather luxury place, ideally located next to the Opera Garnier and close to the shopping disctrict (Galeries Lafayette etc.). Friendly staff, the excellent beds Sofitel is famous for, and a really nice spa with a hamam...all goodies. The small tea room add a nice touch, too. But: you may want to skip breakfast, and go somewhere...

I was very impressed with this hotel. Not fancy but very comfortable. Classic look versus modern. Great location a block from the famed Opera and close to shops and restaurants.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A long tradition of excellence in the art of living awaits you in this grand 19th-century building. An emblem of Parisian life, Hotel Scribe Paris was originally the home of the very aristocratic Jockey Club. It became a hotel of legend, a stage of modernity on which the cinema was born, a favourite place of artists and celebrities. The Scribe keeps that legacy alive today. In its elegant rooms and suites, its public and reception areas, new generations of personalities are even now adding chapters to the hotel's history. ... more   less
