Beautiful, cozy design hotel with very attentive staff and great location! The room was quite decent in size, but very clean and fashionable. The room price is very value for money. Will definitely come back!

Wonderful service! Every employee was extremely attentive and kind, even the elevator maintenance man! The beds are so comfortable I could've slept for days. The amenities are amazing. Not to mention a soaking tub, big bath towels, heated towel rack and bathrobes. The hotel is in an excellent location. It is quiet, despite being so near a busy boulevard with...

Love this boutique hotel. Rooms are smallish but clean. Good water pressure in shower with ceiling shower. Lovely staff. Still my go-to hotel. Love the area for shopping and so close to Opera House and many subways. But need time to get out for slow elevator.

This is our first time staying here and we loved it! I always stay in the Opera area for ease of walking and this was right near all the major department stores and popular areas. The hotel was very modern and clean. It was small but organized perfectly. The staff was friendly and always greeted you with a smile. The...

Great location, walking distance to the bourse, opera and grands boulevard. From there the tube will also take you to the train station Gare de Lyon or the quartier latin (St. Michel) in just a few minutes. The hotel is small but nice clean with a comfortable lounge. Staff members are very friendly and helpful.

I stayed here with a friend and thought it was a lovely place. Staff were really friendly from the moment we got there. Great location! The decor is very funky and there were some lovely touches in the hotel- robes and slippers in the room, a phone with free wifi that you can use to explore the city, nice toiletries...

I particularly like black and white combination and that probably was one reason ehy I liked The Chess Hotel on Rue de Helder in Paris aside from its proximity to Galleries Lafayette and Printemps shopping areas, Metro stations and several good dining outlets. Pricewise, value for money. Service, look for Virginie--such a nice helpful lady at the reception. I highly...

I went for one night, the reception spoke English well and were friendly. The design of my room and bathroom was perfect and the breakfast included was diverse. The hallway when entering is something to get used to, as it feels more like a club when entering the first time, but it fits with the design vibe of this hotel.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Chess Hotel opened in 2014 in one of the most prestigious areas of Paris. Located close to the Opera, La Madeleine, the Grands Magasins department stores, and La Bourse, the Paris stock exchange, it is a unique establishment in many ways. Firstly, it astonishes with its compelling aesthetics. It boasts an original design by Gilles and Boissier, which makes striking use of beautiful materials such as linen, oak and Carrara marble. It features the bold and innovative artwork of Cyprien Chabert. From the curvaceous furniture and quality fabrics to the hues of the wood and the shape of the fixtures, no detail was left to chance. A harmonious and elegant decor has been created that is like no other. While chic and refined, the Chess Hotel is also distinguished by its welcoming and cosy atmosphere, which transforms each room into a true haven. The heart of the city beats just beyond our doorstep. Yet somehow the hotel seems miles away from any hustle and bustle. Travellers are invited to enjoy absolute relaxation. A game of chess by the fire or a quiet hour's reading on the inner terrace. Perhaps an evening spent in blissful privacy amidst the original decor and intimate atmosphere of your room. After long hours of work, or a busy day's sightseeing, you will appreciate the calm and gentle ambience of the Chess Hotel. The Chess Hotel is also exceptional in terms of facilities and services. It is a place distinguished by our efficient, yet warm and gracious, hospitality. It is a place that transcends routine. We are proud that our guests are so much more to us than simply clients. It is a charmingly friendly hotel which places an accommodating and helpful team at the disposal of all guests. We are pleased to provide personalised services and thoughtful recommendations for discovering the treasures of Paris, allowing you to venture off the beaten paths of the capital. ... more   less
