We had wanted to stay in similarly branded hotels for this European trip and we chose Accor.
First on the list was Scribe, managed by Sofitel.
Location - Upon leaving the hotel, turning left takes you to the Grand Magasins - Galeries Lafayette, & Printemps. Turning right leads you down to Rue Cambon & Rue St Honore.
Bathroom - The toilet and shower were in 2 separate rooms so, useful if you're a couple!
Bed - It was a nice comfy, large bed (actually 2 single beds pushed together but it didn't feel like it) with very nice down pillows.
Others - You also get 2 bottles of Evian daily. But water from the tap is potable anyway. Free wifi, although a bit slow.
Cons: (just teeny comments)
Bathroom - The shower was very hard to manage as it wouldn't stay at the angle I wanted (the hinge seemed to be broken) plus the glass door witht he rubber stopper wasn't enough to stop water from flowing over and getting part of the bathroom floor wet.
Room size - a bit small, but I guess expected since we were in Paris
TV - For some reason it takes AGES to change channels.
No parking at the hotel but there is a garage right behind it and it's pretty easy to get to. Expensive though at Eur 31/day.
Overall, would stay here again!
- 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
