Nice quiet room on the 5th floor, rooms not huge but typical Paris size. Bed very comfortable. Didn't eat breakfast in the hotel due to the cost 35 Euros per person. There are a number of excellent cafes and restaurants nearby for breakfast and dinner.

The hotel is in great location near a number of Metro stations and close to the Opera house

Dear Madam, dear Sir,

We thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Hotel Scribe Paris.

As you have mentioned yourselves, Parisian hotels in the city center are compelled to provide rooms a certain size, due to the beautiful ancient buildings they are implanted in, as is ours.

We insist on providing the best bedding comfort, and are pleased to know that the Sofitel Mybed was a memorable experience to you.

Although there are several cafés and restaurants close to the hotel, our buffet breakfast offers a very large choice of fresh products for a tasteful and consistant meal.

We thank you again for your helpful comments, and are looking forward to welcoming you again very soon!

Best regards

We booked a “luxury room” on the sixth floor; stayed there with my wife and a three-year-old. Room is very spacious, extremely quiet, lots of light, all necessary amenities and very safe for the child. Breakfast buffet is very abundant and can fit any taste, including such fancies a morning cup of miso soup and gohan for those coming from the Far East.
The location is just around the corner from Opera Garnier, about 10 minute walk from the Louvre / Tuileries and several minutes from the main shopping street / key department stores. Taxis, metro are all within immediate reach.
All members of staff were very helpful and nice, hotel superbly clean, everything working without fault.
I’ve stayed in other locations in Paris, but to my mind, Scribe is a perfect place for enjoying Paris with family and worth every cent paid for the room rate. Highly recommended.

I stayed overnight at Hotel Scribe in Paris for a business trip. On the positive side, the hotel is very well located close to Opera and Place Madeleine. However, the "superior" rooms (the lowest category) are very small indeed but perfectly fine. I would say that the staff in the bar were not particularly friendly and told us to drink up as the bar was closing. However, worse was to come. They completely forgot my wake up call and I missed breakfast and was very close to missing my eurostar. This hotel is not terrible, it's just that there are better hotels for E280/night.

Room Tip: Dont choose a superior room

We loved our stay at the Hotel Scribe. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and well-decorated. The service was great, and the concierge helped us choose every restaurant…every one of which we enjoyed. I recommend the hotel's breakfast buffet. We ate there every morning and it was always a delicious start to our day. I'd love to stay at this hotel again. It's fun, sophisticated, and well-located.
