Has anyone stayed at the HOTEL SEVIGNE in the Marais district, Paris?

I will be staying in Paris for 10 days in February at the Hotel Sevigne. This hotel was recommended but not with any details on the decor, size of rooms ect. I would appreciate any information from anyone who has stayed at this hotel.
Thanks in advance.

I have stayed several times at the Hotel de Sevigne, but it is not in the Marais... rather, it is in the 16e arr. on the Rue de Belloy just off Ave.Kleber between the Etoile and Trocadero. If that's the hotel you're staying at, you find it to be a very charming, family run hotel with about 30 rooms. Rooms ending with the numbers "52" are corner rooms, and 352 and 452 have small balconies.

There are two Hotel Sevignes in Paris -- one in the
16th and the other (the poor counsin) in the Marais
area (4th arr.). I did not respond to this post because
I had no first-hand experience with this hotel,but
wanted to correct this point. So, while I'm at it,
I assume you know the Hotel Sevigne in the Marais
is quite a budget accommodation, so I wouldn't
expect too much (it's only rated two-stars and is cheap
for that, I think). However, I am familiar with its
location near the St-Paul metro stop, and it is
a very good, convenient location in Paris. The
good thing is, if you really hate it you can
probably leave and move to another hotel which
you can check out on site in Paris, as I would think
you could get a short-notice hotel room in Feb. One
reasonable alternative in the Marais area you
could check out, which I have heard and read very
good things about, is the Caron de Beaumarchais
hotel. It's probably more expensive than the Sevigne,
though, which I think is really cheap.

Thanks for your replies...yes, I'm afraid it's the cheap cousin. A relative has stayed there several times and said that it's clean, reasonably priced (between $75.-$85 a night depending on the dollar exchange) and it's close to where he's living which is important to us as he's going to beshow us around the city. Like you said, if it's horrible we can move on! Thanks again for the information. This will be our first trip to Paris and I'm really excited.
