Sofitel Le Scribe Paris Opera was built in 1861 as part of the original development by Haussmann that created the opulent Opera neighborhood as we know it today. It is an example of classic Parisian architecture, and has been part of the city’s history since its inception.

Sofitel prides itself in bringing some French flair to every one of their international hotels. Here, in the very heart of Paris, the result is unapologetically and undeniably Parisian. The rooms and suites are a modern re-imagination of Haussmann’s 19th-century architecture, using a simple neutral color scheme to highlight the opulent, plushy furnishings and impeccable French style.

There is a splendid restaurant, Le Lumiere, which is named in honor of the Lumiere brothers, who invented cinema and held their first private screening in the building that is now Sofitel Le Scribe Paris Opera. L’Obscur bar is luxuriously swanky and old-fashioned, giving you the impressing of stepping back through time. The hotel also has excellent spa and wellness facilities at Keiraõ Spa.

Opera isn’t a particularly gay area, but it is one of Paris’ most iconic and gorgeous neighborhoods. There are a few gay nightlife options nearby, such as Doctor Love and LIM parties at Club Haussmann and Bizarre Love Triangle at Maxim’s, both about 10 minutes away. Two gay saunas, Sauna IDM and Euro Men’s Club, are also walking distance. The gay bars and clubs of the Marais can easily be accessed in under 20 minutes with the Metro.
