hubert_raeymaekers Business - 14/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is located in walking distance from Gare du Nord, in a small street, looking squeezed between the Opera and other houses. But when you enter you are welcomed very friendly in a cozy and astonishing world of Belle Époque architecture. We particularly liked the bar/restaurant/breakfast environment and the elevator design.

good service

bordesdalverny Business - 02/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Very friendly team, super professional always eager to help and listen Ideal location in a very Parisian district a bit like meatpackers. Very central París a mile away from the Seine river, 1 mile away from Saint Martin Canal. At the very heart of what París is supposed to be. Alternative, inventive, messy what philosophy is about. All men are equal

Well located and clean- staff very helpful and friendly

Good hotel at a central location. Friendly staff. Breakfast was good, but not a cosy place for diner. In the area enough fine restaurants where you can eat for a decent price. Paris Nord station (Thalys) is just a 15 minute walk.

Dear 4Ronald, Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review of our hotel. We are pleased you appreciated our location. We are ideally situated for a great lunch or dinner in one of the numerous cafés and restaurants surrounding the hotel. Thank you for highlighting the personalised customer care. We do try our upmost to ensure the comfort of each guest. We are truly glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to welcome you again to our Parisian home. Warm regards, Hoda - Guest Experience Manager

Good overall experience. Very friendly dining staff. Rooms very clean However I found our suite on the small side and the neighborhood a bit on the shady side. I would advise your guests to use the Bonne Nouvelle station and avoid the St Denis station

We really enjoyed our stay. The building was full of character (the good kind), beautifully finished and comfortably modernised in tune with the original architecture. Staff were attentive yet discreet. Breakfast was a treat and we slept amazingly well. I’d love to go back again.

Very nice hotel, second time we are staying in MGallery and still very satisfied: rooms are comfortable, breakfast is excellent, location is perfect, closed to many Parisian spots, staff was very friendly. We will come back

I will not miss to share your nice words with all the team, they will be so grateful as we work hard to provide a memorable moment.

We serve fresh products and we work with local produceurs. Looking forward to welcome you again very soon. Warm regards, Hoda - Guest Experience Manager

A mixed experience, some things excellent, some disappointing. Understaffing is causing problems.

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Mark H. Families - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

There was a problem with booking as my internet connection wasn't great. I sent an email and was soon called back by Shawn who was pleasant, efficient and confirmed the booking of two rooms as intended. He also gave us complimentary breakfasts to make up for the trouble which we very gladly received. When we arrived at the hotel after a long journey through storms causing traffic, we also met a friend who had lost his wallet while travelling. We were all very happy to be in such a beautiful hotel. Unfortunately, we were unable to enjoy the cocktails we wanted to order from the "cocktail bar" because the only person who could mix cocktails was giving a workshop on mixology to other guests who had booked a package. No other staff member was available to mix our drinks. After the bar person rudely walked off from our table, Shawn again intervened to try and solve the problem, explaining the situation with the other guests and that the pandemic was also the cause of low staff levels. Of course we understand these are not normal times, but in scheduling a cocktail class at 19:00 on a Saturday evening, that results in no other cocktails to be mixed at a cocktail bar is pretty crazy. We chose other drinks, but the experience with the rude staff member was unpleasant. The rooms were small, but pleasant, especially the bathrooms. The hotel location is very good and the rate we paid for two rooms was very good value for money. The parking garage isn't up to standard, when we departed the lights weren't working and someone has been using the lifts as a toilet. The card machine to pay barely worked. I understand the parking is operated by a different company, but it also gives a bad impression on the hotel. The breakfast was similarly a mixed experience. Of course we were grateful that it had been provided complimentary. This was a very nice gesture. Unfortunately this was somewhat undermined. As a family of five we ended up on 3 small tables pushed together which were uncomfortably close to other tables and did not seem to be respecting the social distancing rules. Many guests had to squeeze past our table to get to the food. The food selection was fine, although nothing special. Drinks were extremely slow to come, largely because there were too many guests and not enough staff. Some guests started to get impatient and generally it was quite a stressful experience being stuck in the middle of a small space, waiting a long time for coffee and having staff running around and being grumbled at. Again, we fully understand that this is a time of pandemic and staff absences are a common situation at the moment. It is also understandable that the hotel is using promotions to attract guests at a difficult time. However, the combination of these two situations is not inevitable and somewhat spoiled our stay, which would otherwise have been wonderful. I again want to single out Shawn for his efforts, because otherwise we would have left quite angry.

Great experience!

It was a lovely weekend. The hotel staff were very friendly, accommodating, and welcoming. The hotel was beautiful and provided us with everything that we needed. We also took a cocktail class in the evening which was very fun! The bar has a very nice ambiance.

I love this hotel as it is very well located to be able to go everywhere by foot but also because this hotel is very charming and the bed is very good quality. Employees at reception are very nice and you feel welcome. Employees at restaurant should be a bit more smiling but service was correct

Dear Miss P., The all team of the hotel L’Echiquier Opéra Paris thanks you for your stay in our hotel. We all are really excited about your feedback. This feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our reception staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Regarding the restaurant, be sure we’ll inform them to be more smiley even if we are wearing masks  . We hope that you will come back to Paris and visit us really soon. Looking forward for your next stay ! Kind Regards, Anaïs Guest Relation
