Spent two nights at the L'Echiquier Opera recently during a weekend trip to Paris. Before arriving, I contacted the hotel through email to arrange for airport transfers as well as to help me with a restaurant reservation. I got fast and friendly replies that the airport pick-up was arranged (€70) for the two of us and that they had made...

We stayed here for two nights Friday to Sunday. We picked this Hotel as it wasn't too far away from everything. It was located two minutes walk from the Metro Bonne Nouvelle. It had plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. The hotel staff were among the best I have ever encountered. Very friendly, very helpful and very attentive. Nothing was...

Our first time back to Paris in three years and we found this hotel on Accorhotels website where we usually book the Mercure near Gare St. Lazard or up between Place de Clichy and Montmartre. This hotel was so so so much better than either. Everything and everyone in the hotel was outstanding from the lovely smelling reception,through the charming...

This was a lovely hotel with well-appointed rooms. The staff were friendly and the bar area is wonderful. There are large bottles of Clarins body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion in the bathroom, and it smells so nice. The bed was really comfortable and the hotel is well located to visit all the big sights, it’s only a 5...

Dear Guest, Many thanks for the time you spent for leaving your kind review. I am thrilled to read that you loved your stay with us, and I am glad you appreciated the Clarins products with which we equipped all of our rooms.

We have stayed in Paris on numerous occasions and this is the best hotel yet. Next time we go back, we know where we will be staying. Very attractive art deco style building, superb extensive breakfast in beautiful surroundings, well appointed rooms, professional friendly staff and all at a very reasonable price. Really nice rainfall shower and very well laid...

I rarely rate hotels five stars unless they are genuinely fantastic. This hotel is a hidden gem. From the service, the lovely rooms, the facilities, the restaurant, the check-in, the decor and location - it was outstanding. The two bartenders we had for my Mother's birthday were incredibly accommodating and friendly - we couldn't have hoped for better service or...

Stayed here for 2 nights with my mum and sister as a birthday present. The hotel was amazing, a great location, with extremely friendly and helpful staff. We had a room for 3 people, so two single beds with one sofa bed, which was equally as comfortable as the bed. The room itself was large with a separate toilet and...

We visited the Échiquier for the first time over the summer, and were impressed by the friendly staff, the beds, the stunning lounge area and fantastic breakfast. Our second stay confirmed our initial impressions !

In a good central location, well maintained, good friendly front office staff (although they pretended not to know about Accor's family policy), good breakfast staff (sometimes a little slow with coffee but that is easily forgiven), good breakfast spread (albeit no fresh eggs, just the industrial scrambled eggs), comfortable beds, good and friendly housekeeping, nice shower and amenities. Rooms are...

Just came back from a 4 night stay, and the one word that comes to mind in "Flawless". I was greeted with a warm and genuine welcome. As soon as my French faltered, the gentleman switched to English. After the few formalities of checking in, I was shown the lounge and the way to the "cage" elevator. The room was...
