It's the Amazing People We'll Remember
Reviewed 6 days ago

Once we got to L'Echiquier things got a whole lot better. Always take an "Official Taxi" from the Gare du Nord train station ( a 60 Euro lesson). The Concierge's at the front desk were friendly, very helpful through our entire stay, and even sympathetic to our taxi faux pas. My wife and I would have given the L'Echiquier 5 stars, but the rooms are small compared to rooms in the USA. We knew this beforehand and it was no surprise. The room was clean, big enough for Paris, and was quiet even though we were right next to the elevator. The bathroom had a shower with plenty of hot water, a large sink, and was stocked with plenty of liquid soaps, shampoo, and conditioner. A mini-fridge was also provided. Hotel L'Echiquier is located nearby to cafe's, shops, money exchanges, and the Metro Stations on the Rue Bonne Nouvelle. We enjoyed the breakfasts very much. There was a variety of food choices to please everyone whether you're European or from the USA. I loved the cheeses which seem to never make their way to the USA. Again, the waitstaff was always smiling,helpful, and professional. We want to make special mention of Youssouf who is the Dining Room Manager. Thank You so much once again!! Youssouf is amazing! He did an act of kindness for us, strangers to him, wanting nothing in return. I'm not used to meeting such a selfless person. It was a privilege meeting you and we'll miss your smile. We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel L'Echiquier and would do it again.

Would definitely stay here again :)

Perfect location, great hotel, outstanding staff
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Everything about our stay was superb. Well-located and walkable from the Gare du Nord station, and also walkable to Notre Dame, the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, etc. Staff were outstanding, and very helpful throughout our trip. Food at breakfast was good quality, and the bar meals were just what we needed on a couple of occasions.

Beautiful stylish well run place

Excellent stay at this wonderful hotel, I would definitely come again during my next Paris trip.
Thanks to all the staff in particular at reception (nice upgrade). Though I was a little bit sad that the cleaning team did not replenish the chocolates every day, they were delicious by the way.
Really beautiful decor. Very good breakfast too. Quiet night. All in all excellent.
The only thing that the hotel needs to try and fix is why on earth all GPS systems (Waze, google, etc) send taxis to 38 rue d’Enghien instead of when you enter rue de l’échiquier?!? This can turn your arrival or departure into a nightmare. Please do get in touch with those services to get it fixed.

Top level, no doubt
Reviewed 2 months ago

I needed a place to go close to the REX in Paris. I discovered a wonderful place, hidden behind the usual Paris architecture. If you are looking for a top service level, for an extremely clean place (not easy in some countries…) and a quiet night to sleep...then this is where you must go.
Most impressive is breakfast, an ordinary breakfast at first view but of overwhelming good quality, from the orange juice over the croissant to the people serving you.
