Ricardo Couples - 14/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It seems impossible to get the room you have booked in this hotel. For the second time in a row, we were "under-classed" and had to request a change of room that was only possible after the third night out of seven.

Expensive, a bit dirty, good breakfast

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Kristoffer A. Business - 08/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall expensive for a room without any view. Good breakfast, even though the selection was limited. The room was dirty, the toilet smelled urine, and the carpet had a lot of hair all over. This room had not been thoroughly cleaned in a while!

Decent place with room for improvements

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Cz Families - 03/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is well located in the centre of Paris, closed to the Grand Rex in a quiet street. When we arrived, we got a tiny introduction concerning the bar and breakfast and that's it. No welcome package in the room, you just have to figure it out by yourself. Breakfast is really random with usual products. Scrambled eggs are tasteless, limited choices for salty products. Drinks at the bar are good but pricy.

Loved it. Great location, great food, great service

Howard Couples - 30/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

As ever this hotel provided excellent comfort and service in a convenient central location. Just one negative comment - the “salad nicoise” served in the bar had no anchovy, no black olives, no green beans or boiled new potatoes. But it did contain pieces of stale bread and grapefruit segments!! The “Caesar salad” had no flavour of anchovies, but also contained stale bread (they weren’t proper croutons) and grapefruit segments. Very disappointed by this.

Wonderful experience

Laura C. W. Couples - 23/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The accommodations were perfect. Very comfortable bed, nice sized room, well-appointed bath. The breakfast was generous (but a bit pricey). Your staff are AMAZING. Very helpful with reservations, locations of taxi stands, directions to the metro, etc. But above all, the front desk staff helped me solve a money emergency when my credit card was suddenly declined. I cannot be more grateful for their support and resourcefulness. We will be back next week for 2 nights before we return to the US. I Can hardly wait to see them again and thank them in person.

Dear Mrs W., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at L'Échiquier Opéra Paris. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. We were very pleased to help you Shawn and me. We can't wait to welcome you again this week ! Warm regards, Hoda - Guest Experience Manager

Nice location surrounded by good restaurants and easy reach to public transportation too. Staff members were attentive and the room was clean. You could hear the next room and the upstairs but it was not super disturbing. Clarins amenities were nice but it could come across as strong scents if you are sensitive.

Friendly hotel, great location, great stay

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.

Dear Hubert_raeymaekers, On behalf of the whole team, I would like to personally thank you for this wonderful review following your recent stay with us. Thank you for highlighting different aspects of l'Echiquier such as the friendly team, decoration and unique Belle Epoque architecture and of course the unbeatable location. Our location is definitely one of the main attractions, being at a short distance from Gare du Nord, the beautiful Opera Garnier and of course les Grands Boulevards is a plus. Hoping to welcome you back very soon ! Warm Regards, Hoda - Guest Experience Manager

The best team in the world

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

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

Dear Bordesdalverny, A huge thanks from the whole team for this wonderful review following your stay with us. What a pleasure to read that the whole team was ready to serve you and listening. The location... Is indeed another privilege of ours - we are one block away from the Grands Boulevards / Opera and yet it offers a calm and secure ambiance to our guests, it gives them openness to many of the Parisian sites within a very short walk. What a joy having you stay with us and we appreciate your support and your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future! Warm regards, Hoda - Guest Experience Manager

Simple but good

4ronald 22/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

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

Richard W 20/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

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.
