Each Sofitel hotel is a unique blend of French art de vivre and the best local culture. Set between the legendary Opéra Garnier, large department stores and the Louvre, the Scribe hotel has been beating the vibrant 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.
From April 2018 to December 2019, the Scribe hotel will undergo renovation work and invites Parisians and travelers alike to share their vision of the Parisian spirit.
