Hotel Scribe Paris

We had such a lovely stay at the Hotel Scribe this past weekend in the 9th arrondissment of Paris.  Hotel Scribe is located right next to L'Opera Garnier and a short walk to La Madeline, Place Vendome (to visit all the amazing jewels), Jardin des Tuileries, and the Louvre.  The best part about this location of course is that it is super convenient to all the fab shopping, especially the amazing boutiques on Rue Faubourg Saint Honore!

Hotel Scribe has been newly renovated which is a huge plus because images on websites can be so deceiving.  The staff all speak fluent English and are all super friendly and helpful.  The lobby and reception are very glamorous but inviting at the same time with comfy seating placed throughout.  The rooms are all cleanly decorated in soft greys and neutrals with a fresh white bathroom.  Bonus is that Hermes products are fully stocked in the bathrooms!  There is an amazing buffet breakfast that was pricey but worth it especially since there were highchairs available which is a total novelty in Paris.  We brought a travel cot with us so not sure if the hotel provides cots.  The concierge was really useful with recommendations especially kindly marking on the maps where shops would be open on Sunday.

The only complaint I would have about the hotel is that the blinds were not blackout lined.  Our room faced the main street Rue des Capucines so it was pretty bright the whole night and causing the Little Monster to wake much earlier than usual.  Also, there is a cute little porthole in the bathroom that overlooks the room so when you turn the lights on in the bathroom the bedroom is affected.  Normally this isn't a huge deal but with a sleeping monster it is something we had to be aware of.  But none of these are deal breakers and would happily stay at Hotel Scribe again.

In the entrance of the hotel there is a sweet little tea salon serving a huge selection of teas, drinks, patisseries, and snacks.  Everything we ordered was incredible especially the macarons!  I'm glad we only stayed for the weekend or else I would definitely be stuffing my face there and getting fat.

If you are ever in Paris and looking for a convenient location that is baby friendly then I highly recommend Hotel Scribe.
