An old-world, historic budget hotel on the border of Montmartre's now tamed red-light district, this former cabaret has much of its Art Deco wood paneling and theatrical trappings intact. Prices are at the low end of its category, so don't expect anything ritzy. The hotel has dark, rich decor, with green walls, red armchairs, an antique caged elevator, and vaudeville posters in the stained-glass-ceiling lounge. Reproduction furniture, antique prints and oils, and busy
modern fabrics fill out the larger-than-average rooms. Some windows face Sacré-Coeur. Absinthe is served in the hotel's historic bar.

We made a credit card booking for a family weekend break here only to arrive and find the hotel covered in scaffolding and our room unavailable due to building work. There was no mention of this when we made the booking, nor was there any mention on the website. The hotel booked us into alternative accommodation that was unsuitable and the staff couldn't really care less about how upset we were. It marred what should have been a treat and I have
no desire to take my family back to Paris again. The uncaring staff and dishonesty when we made our booking was very upsetting.
