Fabulous 8,8 From 156 reviews

Very good 8,0
Good Hotel With Spotty WiFi
Overall, the hotel is nice as is the area around it. The service is attentive and the rooms are clean. The only major downside is that the WiFi service was spotty. I had difficulty connecting to webinars that I needed to participate in. For this reason, I would not stay in the hotel again unless the WiFi connectivity was improved significantly.

Modern, stylish, comfortable
The room was typical European size (small) but very beautiful and comfortable. The front desk reception was so friendly and made me feel very special. I read in other reviews that you must ring a buzzer at street level and then come up the elevator to reception on the 1st floor to check in (after that, your room key will open the door and elevator) and that was very helpful to know in advance. I very much enjoyed my stay at The Chess.

Highly satisfied!
Very nice hotel in a well located place. We were near plenty of restaurants and a short walking distance from the Opera Garnier (where the phantom of the opera was inspired from). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was exceptionally spacious for a hotel in Paris. Free movie channels were provided and good internet. There were washcloths in the bathroom (unusual in France), free slippers and bath robes (in the larger rooms). The air-conditioning worked well even in mid-season. I recommend this place to all who are wanting to visit Paris without compromising comfort and paying a fortune.

A beautifully appointed boutique hotel in Paris
A beautifully appointed boutique hotel in the centre of Paris with a lovely breakfast room. The room was very small but very nicely furnished and the bed was super-comfortable.

Just ok for short stay.
I expected the room to be in better shape. Wallpaper scraped here and there. I asked for a kettle that was not there and never came. Pretty fair for that price.

Great hotel
We were impressed with the Chess Hotel, which was clean and very comfortable. In particular, the hotel provided local cell phones which we could use around town to navigate the city. The rooms were well-appointed and modern. We stayed for a total of 9 nights while visiting Paris. I would definitely recommend the Chess Hotel to others.
