telephone, TV, and windows to the street. The prices are low because the hotel
doesn't have an elevator. This small fact (it may not seem so trivial when
you're lugging your bags up six flights of stairs) keeps the rates down and
keeps the cheapos coming. Its seven floors provide only 28 rooms. The seventh
floor rewards the climbers with romantic sloped ceilings and amazing views out
to the Hotel de Ville and central Paris. Book well in advance, as the rooms go
fast. Prices 35 Eur for a single, 40 for a double and 75 Euros for a

Very romantic 19th century hotel nestled in covered shopping arcade. The picturesque setting is located at the end of a passage, particularly quiet, a few steps from the grands boulevards. The legend tells that Chopin once lodged here! The façade of 1820 is worth a look: ancient woodwork and large glazed bay. A lobby with Chopin souvenirs and a piano. You have the feeling traveling in another century! The rooms are very charming, comfortable, with TV and direct phone, although a bit small. Certain rooms have a particular charm: mansards and a pretty view. Single from
63 € to 65 €. Double with shower or bath 67 € or 76 €, depending on the size. Reserve, if possible, the rooms on the 4th floor (409 to 413): they have the most charm and have the most light.
