A posh Paris hotel with a story
Hotel Scribe isn’t a generic luxury hotel. Like its neighbor, the illustrious Opéra Garnier, it was built in 1861. Since then, it’s served as the cradle of cinema and housed some of the most famous artistic names of all time. The hotel’s ties to the dramatic arts are still strong. Maybe your room will be on the fourth floor, a tribute to former resident Serge Diaghilev, founder of Ballets Russes. Or perhaps you’ll spot Eugène Scribe’s bust on the Opera’s façade, gazing benevolently on his namesake hotel. There’s a story around every corner.The hotel has just over 200 rooms, suites and duplex apartments to choose from. All are outfitted in luxurious fabrics and designed to create a cozy, home-like atmosphere. There’s a reason generations of “who’s who” have chosen the Scribe.
