Each Sofitel Hotel is a blend of French lifestyle and local sophistication. Between the Opéra Garnier, department stores and the Louvre, the Scribe has been pulsing to the rhythm of Paris for 150 years.
Built in 1861 as part of the new Opéra district, the Scribe was first chosen as the headquarters of the prestigious Jockey Club. In 1895, the Lumière brothers chose to host the first global cinema screening here.
Many artists and celebrities from around the world have lived here. For example, Josephine Baker made this her Parisian residence until 1968. A key player in Parisian life, the Scribe is now writing a new page in its history.
Until December 2019, Scribe is inviting Parisians and travelers to share their vision of the Parisian spirit. Go to www.hotel-scribe.com to learn about the project and participate.
