Of the thousands of options in Paris for hotels, we picked a good one! Great location, just 10 mins from Gare du Nord and in excellent strolling distance from the Louvre etc. Great room (try and get a corner one), much larger than the traditional Parisian hotel room, funky decor, mixed with great service and a real boutique feel. Would...

Smack dab in the middle of Paris is a new, great modern 2014, 66 room boutique hotel. 30 minute in any direction and you can walk to just about anywhere. Ten minute walk to and from the RoissyBus airport direct shuttle service, awesome. Took the train in the past but because of the hotel location, this was a much better...

This will be my favourite hotel when I'm in Paris. Very nice boutique hotel. Very convenient and very near to Gallerie Lafayette. My family and me enjoyed every moment staying in this hotel. The room is very modern and nicely decorated. We took the connecting room which is good since we have 4 adults and 1 baby.

Wonderful service! Every employee was extremely attentive and kind, even the elevator maintenance man! The beds are so comfortable I could've slept for days. The amenities are amazing. Not to mention a soaking tub, big bath towels, heated towel rack and bathrobes. The hotel is in an excellent location. It is quiet, despite being so near a busy boulevard with...

Dear Lauren We would like to sincerely thank you for having taken time to share your experience. The Chess Hotel benefits an extraordinary location next to the Opera Garnier and big department stores, but in the small and quite Helder street. We are very pleased that you loved your stay with us and we hope you will again visit us...

Love this boutique hotel. Rooms are smallish but clean. Good water pressure in shower with ceiling shower. Lovely staff. Still my go-to hotel. Love the area for shopping and so close to Opera House and many subways. But need time to get out for slow elevator.

Great location, walking distance to the bourse, opera and grands boulevard. From there the tube will also take you to the train station Gare de Lyon or the quartier latin (St. Michel) in just a few minutes. The hotel is small but nice clean with a comfortable lounge. Staff members are very friendly and helpful.

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)
The Chess Hotel opened in 2014 in one of the most prestigious areas of Paris. Located close to the Opera, La Madeleine, the Grands Magasins department stores, and La Bourse, the Paris stock exchange, it is a unique establishment in many ways. Firstly, it astonishes with its compelling aesthetics. It boasts an original design by Gilles and Boissier, which makes striking use of beautiful materials such as linen, oak and Carrara marble. It features the bold and innovative artwork of Cyprien Chabert. From the curvaceous furniture and quality fabrics to the hues of the wood and the shape of the fixtures, no detail was left to chance. A harmonious and elegant decor has been created that is like no other. While chic and refined, the Chess Hotel is also distinguished by its welcoming and cosy atmosphere, which transforms each room into a true haven. The heart of the city beats just beyond our doorstep. Yet somehow the hotel seems miles away from any hustle and bustle. Travellers are invited to enjoy absolute relaxation. A game of chess by the fire or a quiet hour's reading on the inner terrace. Perhaps an evening spent in blissful privacy amidst the original decor and intimate atmosphere of your room. After long hours of work, or a busy day's sightseeing, you will appreciate the calm and gentle ambience of the Chess Hotel. The Chess Hotel is also exceptional in terms of facilities and services. It is a place distinguished by our efficient, yet warm and gracious, hospitality. It is a place that transcends routine. We are proud that our guests are so much more to us than simply clients. It is a charmingly friendly hotel which places an accommodating and helpful team at the disposal of all guests. We are pleased to provide personalised services and thoughtful recommendations for discovering the treasures of Paris, allowing you to venture off the beaten paths of the capital. ... more   less
