Exceptional 25th wedding anniversary!

Would recommend Fri, Dec 5, 2014
From the moment we arrived, until our shuttle service returned us to the airport, we received customer service of the highest quality. The wait staff in the restaurant were wonderful, and food was to die for. Both concierges we dealt with went over and beyond the call of duty. One of them went so far as to translate between myself and family members living in Paris, due to the language barrier, while we were dining in the hotel restaurant. The location was idesl as it was within walking distance of shops, and quaint cafes. Prices may have been shocking, but the service and quality made it worth while.

Great Stay in Paris!!!

Would recommend Wed, Oct 10, 2012
Stayed 4 nights with my wife in deluxe queen room on club floor. Room was spacious for Paris, very tastefully decorated with all of the amenities you'd expect. Its centrally located, very close to the metro, Opera house and other major sights in Paris. Staff was also very responsive, especially the concierge who gave us some great, off the beaten path ideas since we'd had already toured most of the major Paris sights in a previous trip. All in all, the Scribe did a wonderful job

A wonderful stay

Would recommend Mon, Apr 16, 2012
We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Scribe for our romantic anniversary trip. We always to stay at 5 star hotels in the states, but this hotel was just as good. It's not as large as some of the other hotels but that meant more service. This hotel has all the ammenities. the service at every step of the trip was outstanding. we highly recommend a stay at the Hotel Scribe.

Very unfriendly Hotel Staff!!!

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 4, 2012
We checked in and found the heating system defective: blowing cold air. We were made to feel like chronic complainers. Problem was never fixed, and when they offered to change the room, we were placed in a handicapped room with NO T.V. Access. The hotel staff just refused to accommodate our complaints or requests. One of the worset experiences we have had.

The Scribe is a lovely hotel in a great spot to reach Paris' environs on foot. The staff is friendly and helpful without being aggressive and breakfasts were delicious. The overall feeling is that of a boutique hotel but with amenities of a larger hotel.

What a place

Would recommend Fri, Dec 16, 2011
I normally do not go back to the same hotel twice (unless I earn points by doing so), but I'd stay in this one again. The location was great, as it wasn't touristy and yet close enough to major shopping places and attractions. You'll get this "lived in" feeling at the end of your trip in Paris. Restaurants around this neighborhood were great too. The hotel itself is very nice, with newly renovated bathrooms (they can use a shower door though). Bed was comfortable, and furniture looked modern and nice too. We really enjoyed the Bose radio with iPhone/iPod connector, as there was not much to watch on French TV though we had a decent HDTV in the room. The concierge service was very good and helpful. All in all, they deserve five-star rating, and I highly recommend this place.

Shopping hint

Just walk towards the bright lit building, and that would be Lafayette Galleries. Very nice department store filled with upscale stuff.

Exceeded Expectations!

Would recommend Fri, Nov 4, 2011
What a beautiful Hotel! The hotel staff was wonderful. We arrived about two hours early and our room was not available yet. They sent us around the corner to have a wonderful lunch and told us to come back when we were done with lunch and our room would be ready. When we returned to the hotel from lunch, they informed us that they upgraded our room to a suite. Then they accompanied us to our suite to make sure it was acceptable. It was beautiful! I'm still not sure why they upgraded us, but they treated us like a true guest. This hotel gets high marks with me. Not to mention, its location is ideal.

Excellent location and clean rooms

Would recommend Thu, Apr 21, 2011
Hotel Scribe was recommended to us by several family members and met all of our expectations. The room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel employees were very nice and spoke English perfectly. The location is excellent - an easy walk to main attractions, several good dining areas, and there are always cabs available on the street. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others!


Excellent breakfast place a couple of blocks down the Boulevard des Italiens.
