            Very good location”

            Breakfast, location, friendly staff

            The Chess Hotel is a very nice hotel, I is around 2 mins walk from Lafayette and 1 mins from metro. Walk to opera station only 2 to 3 mins. The staffs are friendly, introduced a very good French restaurant to me. The hotel is very stylish and everything is very good. Is I go to Paris in the future, I will choose Chess again.

            Good location. Agida charged us too much more than the rate of the hotel per day. Front desk staff are ok in the morning usually. We were there to relax and not rush but they kept on bothering us to clean the room before lunch. Their cleaning lady is not attentive. Coffee and water in the room Is not refilled. We were upgraded as what the front desk said but we deserved the upgrade anyways coz we paid more than the room's upgraded price. We stayed there for 5 nights. No breakfast included

            I got free upgrade to deluxe room that made my stay more grateful! The location is good and many restaurants are nearby. The room is chic and comfortable, there's a mobile phone with network to use when go out, although I didn't use it, it's very kind. However, the toilet and the towel are not clean enough, and the hdmi plug didn't work.

            Very terrible manners (I am so disappointed)”

            I am conscious that this hotel has three kinds of rooms depending on its price. I was alone, but since I wanted a comfortable stay, I reserved a deluxe room with a costly price. However, after checking in, I realized the room was a cheap superior room. (And I assure, I had reserved a deluxe room through Agoda) I did ask the front desk why the room isn’t what I saw from the website and showed my voucher, but the hotel service kept insisting it was the deluxe room I had reserved. After a long argument, the service finally changed my room to the room I know was my originally reserved room. However, I must say that the hotel employee did not apologize nor admit their mistake. I was very frustrated and upset by the hotel’s attitude. I’ve traveled a lot and have been through countless hotels, but this was the first time I had received such attitude. From a hotel where people from all over the world visits, in the middle of Paris, and even with a four-star rate, I cannot accept such a manner

            everything is so perfectly adequate except one thing there's no kettle in rooms. In that case, I had to come to ask for it at front desk every nights during the period of my stay. It's really inconvenient to guests. Fortunately all the staffs are hospitable and helpful.
