This comment regards the restaurant only... I did not sleep at the hotel. Looking for nice hors d' oeuvres to eat around dinner time (7 pm), our family of four went to the Hotel Scribe, which looked very nice from the outside. The appearance inside was also very nice. We were disappointed to see that the menu at the time seemed more of a lunch menu. The staff was cordial and professional, but the prices were beyond the usual exorbitance of Paris. 130 Euros might have been acceptable had the food been exceptional, but it was bland and tasteless (notably a caesar salad and a croque monsieuer), and would have been only average from a street vendor. The staff made a mistake in delivering a second croque monsieuer (we thought they had split the order as it was smaller than usual). No one returned to the table to check on the food after delivering it. We ate some of it (though not the caesar), and I got up to seek the bill. When I brought the additional charge to the attention of the manager, he reluctantly took it off the bill, while telling me to let them know beforehand next time. The expense was one thing (disappointing, but after all, Paris is Paris), but the entitled attitude regarding the service of unremarkable food was upsetting.
- 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
