The Lowdown

Right in the heart of Paris stands Sofitel Le Scribe, a hotel just a short walk from the famous Opéra Garnier and the busy Boulevard Haussmann. It’s got everything that makes Paris special: art, history, and a chic, yet relaxed vibe.

Tristan Auer, renowned for his designs in interior decor, reshaped the traditional hospitality norms for Le Scribe by drawing inspiration from the hotel’s rich history. Now, Le Scribe embarks on a new journey, aiming to revive its deep-rooted connection to Parisian life and history. It provides travelers with a distinctive experience, creating guestrooms that evoke the ambiance of an apartment, rather than a typical hotel room.

 Stylish eats

Imagine a busy hub right in the heart of the hotel — that’s Rivages. Martin Simolka’s culinary creations are a feast for the senses. The menu is healthy, balanced, and fancy, with a twist of natural goodness. It includes pink Baigorri trout with samphire gremolata and charred avocado and sweetbread with Malabar pepper and golden turnip. And when the sun sets, Rivages kicks it up a notch, turning into the hottest spot in town. It’s where Paris comes alive, pulsating with energy. At Scribe & Cie, indulge in a delightful array of tea, coffee, and gourmet delights, the ideal spot to savor genuine Parisian pastries firsthand.
