Concierge.com's insider take:
Though it offers great value for the money, there's nothing visibly budget about this Belle Époque beauty, with a great Right Bank location. It was built as a bank in 1870 then converted into a hotel in 1896. Most of the 28 rooms are outfitted with École de Nancy–style (Art Nouveau) furniture and 19th-century paintings, but contemporary fabrics and lighter color schemes prevent this look from feeling too weighty. Book one of the doubles with a grande salle de bain (large bathroom) on a top floor. Word to the wise: Skip the overpriced breakfast here and catch a seat in one of the busy cafés around the corner on the Place de la Trinité instead.
