Expect a low-budget experience at this Belle Époque time traveler proud to keep its dingy chandeliers and faded gold trimming. Budget groups come for sans-frills rooms; some units sleep four. Halls are lined with worn stamped felt that helps muffle sounds trickling up from the marble-floor lobby and bar. There are quirks, like the bathtub/showers without curtains and dated décor in need of renovation, but you're just a few blocks from hipper addresses in the heart
of the Marais.
