« Service at its Best »

Focused on delivering value to hotel guests. Excellent service standards; offered to arrange for a room after check out to shower before my late night flight. This was offered without questions. Amazing team that is well coordinated and ensured that check-in was prepared prior to arrival and all requests properly accommodated for. Upgrade provided due to my loyalty status. Check-in was done is 10mins from luggage unload; identity verification and deposit payment. Room provided was large for Parisian standards; rectangular in size and long with the bed on one end while the TV on the other with the study. Couch and sofa in the middle of the room (could recommend getting a coffee table with the seats). Nice balcony to enjoy the evening setting sun. Beds were comfortable and large. Rain shower had great pressure and constant supply of heated water even at level 5 of a 6 storey building. Separate toilet area for concurrent use. Bar is styled in an American 60’s feel. Large area with great pockets of seating for friends to catch up or business/work related discussion. Cocktails were decently prepared. Location while not immediately beside tourist areas, it is nicely tucked within the 9th. 25min slow stroll to Gallerie Lafayette and situated close to the metro with good line connectivity. Overall a great enjoyable stay.

« Very friendly staff »

Friendly and helpful staff - who made some good recommendations for local restaurants. The hotel itself is in a good central location. Nice rooms, though being an older property they are on the small side - but that's common with a city centre hotel of this type.

« Our stay in Paris »

Great Hotel, Great location, Great staff and service, great room(we had a junior suite), great food and drinks. This is about our 10th stay in Paris in 20 years and was the best hotel we have stayed in. In fact we would class it among the best hotel we have stayed in in any world city . If you are looking for an opulent foyer do not stay here. But if you want a great hotel experience then stay here.

« Beautiful hotel! »

What a fabulous place to stay for a weekend in Paris. The location was perfect, just 15mn away from Gare du Nord which is great when using the Eurostar. The staff was very courteous and friendly. We stayed in a Junior Suite on the last floor and it was just perfect. It was beautifully decorated, everything was of high quality and luxurious. The bed was one of the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The mini bar was included as well as the afternoon tea, which was a real bonus. Look no further when visiting Paris as you will not be disappointed by this place.

« A restful base »

A boutique feel hotel, set in a quiet road close to Bonne Nouvelle Metro. A good base for business (as I usually use it) and also leisure. You always get a friendly welcome from reception. Irons are not in the rooms , but were delivered promptly ( the only time I need to interact with housekeeping). The rooms are comfortable,and well enough equipped.....the Clarins products are a touch of luxury. In the room, my only gripe is that you have to close the wardrobe door to walk past the wardrobe ( sounds petty but after a few days it gets a bit annoying as it is between the bathroom and the bed). The bar is very impressive when you walk in....shame the service is a bit surly. Overall, a good hotel choice in Paris, although like many Accor hotels, it can be pricey compared to others in the area.

« Excellent - Committed staff - Nice building - great location »

It was an outstanding experience. This is probably one of my best place to stay when I'm in Paris. The staff is very smiling and committed. Bedroom, breakfast, the old elevator: all is nice and clean, as it has to be!

« Charming Boutique Hotel in the area of Paris Grand Boulevards »

This has been second time I stayed at this charming boutique style hotel in the area of Grand Boulevards in Paris and I couldn't wish for a better place to stay in Paris. The whole hotel is a good example of French Art Nouveau, the rooms although being a bit small are very functional and beautifully decorated with all amenities needed for a relaxing stay after the full day exploration of the best city in the World. The breakfast is also a kind of French style and quite sufficient, though a bit lacking of hot dishes. However, the most valuable asset of this hotel is its staff always friendly and willing to help. All in all, it is one of the best hotels in Paris in its range.

« Hidden jewel in Paris »

Are you looking for the home in Paris? This is L'Echiquier. Soft, cosy, silent, comfortable, newly refurbished with polished staff and all-you-need facilities in the room. Feels like old french house where you are invited and very welcome. Tasty breakfast in the green closed terrasse. Full-size Clarins in the bath. Silent curtain on the door. Excellent tea and coffee in the room. Nothing special, but everything is tailored to you and your memorable stay in Paris.

« A Very Charming Hotel in a Good Location »

It was a pleasant stay for 4 nights at a very charming hotel in a good location in the Grands Boulevards area. The room, though being quite small (it is my understanding that it is common for Paris), was nicely and newly decorated and very efficient, although the space in the bathroom was not enough, in my opinion, since there was even no space for placing your own toiletries apart from a toothbrush. However, the most valuable asset of this wonderful hotel is the great staff always attentive and willing to help. All in all, I was extremely satisfied with my 4 day stay there.

« Great hotel, but not fantastic in some details »

Good location, easy access to Metro, plenty of good restaurants and shopping just around the corner. Wonderful beds och super breakfast. Salmon, different kinds of french cheeses, eggs made to order, fresh juice. De-luxe rooms do not live up to the cost. Toilet separated from bathroom, very frustrating. And no hand wash in the toilet-area. Room dark and dull, with one window facing the dark courtyard. Changed to superior room day 2, at a lower price. All-inclusive toilet/bathroom, fantastic view with two large windows. A bit annoying was the fact that we in both bookings was confirmed for twin-room. However, both rooms was with ordinary double-bed. Had to wait one hour twice, so they could re-arrange the rooms. Sweet staff. Would I come back, yes.

« Worse than previous stay in August 2016 »

This was our second stay in L'Echiquier Opera after the first one happened in August 2016 when I with my future wife were so impressed by the hotel then decided that next stay in Paris should be only with L'Echiquier. Now it was our honeymoon trip. Besides my LeClub Accorhotels platinum status which brought certain useful benefits in the hotel like room upgrade for one category and welcome drink in the bar I also advised via e-mail in 2 weeks ahead that it would have been also our honeymoon trip considering for a bit more than status benefits. What was the outcome when we arrived on April 30 for 3-nights stay? Just "congratulations!" during check-in and nothing more than the benefits due for us thanks to my status - deluxe room upgrade to junior suite, some cookies in the room and welcome drink. I do not say that the hotel owes anything to us, but possible upgrade to prestige suite or a small bottle of champaigne in the room would not have harmed the hotel and made us completely happy. In general the level of services in the hotel is still above average in Paris: rooms are clean and equipped with free soft drinks in the minibar, staff on the reception is ready to help - the advised us and made a reservation to wonderful seafood restaurant located in 5 minutes walk - Brassier Flo, the breakfast is quite plentiful. What distressed us in addition? One day prior to our check-out our large bath towels in the room were replaced by smaller ones. The reply for our question why was that no large batch towels were provided to the hotel that day and "we would get the right ones next morning". We have never faced similar situation in any 4-stars hotel in the past. Another "cons" was that during the weekday breakfasts staff seemed did not cope with the number of guests visiting and we had to seek hurrying staff members asking for missing glasses or cup of tea although had not notice anything similar previously in August. Our general conclusion for the stay - the hotel is still ahead and provides a relatively good service to guests but the level of service is gradually decreasing. During the check-out we were apologized by the front-office manager and the same was answered in reply to MGallery internal survey, just apologies but not complimentary LeClub points for inconveniences in response. Will we return to L'Echiquier next time in Paris? Still yes but we will not expect anything outstanding like it was after our first stay in August 2016.

« Charming (in a good way) hotel »

We stayed here for a short weekend trip to Paris. We were impressed from the start. Friendly staff (in PARIS!) and a lovely lobby/bar that made you feel as if it was the 1920s and we were on a luxury trip through the city. While our room wasn't quite ready (we checked in early), the front desk took our bags and helped us find our way to a nearby market. When we did get to the room, it was large by European standards and our bags were waiting for us. The room was clean and well thought out. Bathrooms were clean and modern. Such a pleasure to sleep well and wake up refreshed. After a quick workout in the gym (decent for a small hotel) and a stop at the elaborate pastry filled breakfast, we checked out. The staff was so friendly, looked after our bags and then helped us find our way for the afternoon before we had to leave for our train. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a thoughtful hotel without being too fussy.

« Everything was excellent »

I stayed twice in about a week, so waited till the second stay to write my review in case anything changed. Nothing I could really fault, check in was fast. Rooms were ready pretty much straight away. We were upgraded both times, which was really appreciated. Espsically the first stay, as the room on the second stay although still a deluxe room was much smaller (partly due to having a sofa). Once we put the cot in there was no real space in the room. But these were free upgrades, so can't complain, althoggh if we were staying for more than one night I might have asked about moving rooms. The breakfast was excellent, with lots of choice of baked goods and also some hot food, I really overate both times. The staff also gave good recomendations for places to eat. I would be happy to go back. The location is good for the North and east train stations. Only a short walk away.

« Nice addition to 10ème arrondissement »

10ème arrondissement is known for being a up and coming neighborhood full of bars and restaurants only some areas could still a bit seedy. The staff were absolutely friendly and helpful and our junior suite was on the 5th floor with a nice size balcony which is rare when visiting Paris without paying an arm and a leg.

« Historic Hotel in fabulous location »

Beautifully restored historic building in great location close to Metro and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our room had all mod cons, plenty of storage space and a good sized bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed the snacks from the restaurant. All staff were attentive and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend as a great place to stay in Paris.
