“Wonderful Anniversary”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Had a great visit to Hotel Scribe in Paris to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Came back from a day of seeing beautiful Paris and were surprised by a bottle of Champagne and a decorated plate of treats recognizing our milestone. If you want a great hotel in a great location that is elegant and casual, Hotel Scribe is the place to stay.

What a truly amazing and wonderful hotel! The building is beautiful, the staff couldn't be more welcoming, the hotel's facilities are amazing and the location is ideal. We spent a long weekend in Paris and the hotel made our stay perfect. Check in was quick and easy, the room was huge, beautiful and spotless, the concierge was on hand to help with all our questions and to recommend some great place to visit and eat. Everything was in walking distance- the Louvre, Champs Élysées, St Germain, Sacré Coeur and the Parisienne boutiques! We had a truly wonderful stay. Thank you!

Very warm welcome on arrival. Thank you for Katherine (the receptionist) who make us feel so special upon arrival. This fabulous hotel is located in the heart of the shoppings' district. Well located near Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. The quality of room was high with a great view but a bit small. However, we were so happy with our stay at Hotel Scribe. We definitely return back next time whenever we visit Paris. :)

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for providing us with feedback with regard to your stay at the Hotel Scribe Paris.

For shopping, it's true that you have chosen the right place!
The Hotel Scribe Paris is indeed very well located.
The Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and other famous shops are very close to the Hotel Scribe!

As for the size of the room, just for you to know that every room is different and the size varies from one room to another, even on the category. We would be very happy to give you a bigger room the next time you coming to the hotel if we have the availabilities.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

With kind regards,

Our stay got off to a great start with exceptional service from the front desk staff. We arrived early and even though we had a bit of a wait, they took our luggage and made us very comfortable and welcomed. Room on 4th floor fronting Bd de Capucines was pleasantly large and quiet. Distant view of Eiffel Tower was a nice touch. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Breakfast had good selection, can be a bit crowded and hectic so arrive early if you can. Overall, very nice 5 star property in great location. Opera metro station is a short walk from hotel. Also, Gare St. Lazaire is walking distance which was nice to catch an early morning train to Normandy.

If you can not walk to your desired location Metro can get you there. This is our second stay. Its not cheap, but neither is mid town NYC. Staff are helpful. Concierge arranges dinner reservations graciously if you know where you want to go, and provide directions.
Service in the bar was weak. Servers made drinks ad well as served. This made for unhappy hour at crowded times, which was frequent.
Food from the kitchen was great, but the French menu had different offerings from the English language menu. Go figure....
We would probably stay here again.

Dear Sir,

We thank you for having chosen the Hotel Scribe for your stay in Paris, as well as taking the time to share your comments.

We are very happy to hear that our concierge team managed to help you with your dinner reservation, they also know a lot of good places in Paris and next time they can recommend you something special depending on what you are looking for.

We are disappointed to hear that the service at the bar was as I understand, slow and difficult.
and we deeply apologize for the time you had to wait before getting your drinks.
We tempt to get busy easily and of course the delay of preparation of the drinks and cocktails can seem a little bit long but it's because our staff likes to add some special care in what they do!

We are indeed lucky to enjoy a very central location, next to shopping areas and close to various museums or restaurants.

We thank you for sharing this experience with us as we constantly strive to improve our guest services, and are looking forward to welcoming you again,

Best regards,

Vincent Arnaud
