Stayed here for 2 nights with my mum and sister as a birthday present. The hotel was amazing, a great location, with extremely friendly and helpful staff. We had a room for 3 people, so two single beds with one sofa bed, which was equally as comfortable as the bed. The room itself was large with a separate toilet and...

We wanted to stay on the right (north) bank of the Seine this time and were pleased to find this hotel in the Opéra area that had just been renovated by Sofitel. The rooms are very decent sized for Paris and in early October, 2016 had pristine carpets, bed linens and bathroom fixtures. In many, older French hotels and inns,...

Dear Guest, Let me thank you for taking the time to share your recent stay with us on trip Advisor. I am glad you loved our bathrooms, and our shower in particular. Our decorators, Le Coadic and Scotto, spent a lot of time on the renovation project, and they wanted our rooms to be like a real parisian apartement of...

We visited the Échiquier for the first time over the summer, and were impressed by the friendly staff, the beds, the stunning lounge area and fantastic breakfast. Our second stay confirmed our initial impressions !

In a good central location, well maintained, good friendly front office staff (although they pretended not to know about Accor's family policy), good breakfast staff (sometimes a little slow with coffee but that is easily forgiven), good breakfast spread (albeit no fresh eggs, just the industrial scrambled eggs), comfortable beds, good and friendly housekeeping, nice shower and amenities. Rooms are...

Just came back from a 4 night stay, and the one word that comes to mind in "Flawless". I was greeted with a warm and genuine welcome. As soon as my French faltered, the gentleman switched to English. After the few formalities of checking in, I was shown the lounge and the way to the "cage" elevator. The room was...

We booked the Hotel L'Echiquier Opera Paris MGallery by Sofitel on the recommendation of our daughter who is a regular business visitor to Paris. This was our first visit to Paris, indeed to France and was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The location on the Rue de l Echiquier in the 10th Arrondissement, belies the elegance of this Art Deco...

The room is much smaller than advertised (18 sq meter for bath+room instead of advertised 26 sq meter). This is the Junior Suite. The double bed is actually two united 0.9m single beds. All other amenities are good and new. The room overall is high quality. I complained about the above and was offered free breakfast and that the mattress...

Just a perfect place to stay in Paris. A great location so well connected with the main points in Paris; the atmosphere in the hotel, design, staff, room, breakfast - all really wonderful. I always enjoy the stay in this lovely hotel.

Very nice hotel located 2min away from a metro station and a few stations from the Opéra Garnier. The rooms were extremely nice, the staff friendly & professionnal, the bar a memory of Paris in the 1920's. The breakfast is good but somehow a bit below the overall quality of the hotel. nevertheless I would recommend this hotel for a...

The meet and greet was warm and sincere, the room was on the second floor so the stairs were fine however a lift is also available.

Breakfast catered for all tastes and is a must even though a little above average price it...
