This lovely hotel offers comfortable rooms with high ceilings, 19th-century moldings, and antique headboards and armoires at a fraction of the price of a drab four-star nearby. While it may not be on top of the Champs-Élysées, it’s not far, and it’s close to stately Parc Monceau and a quick trot to the Saint Lazare train station. The friendly owners, who are inveterate flea-market browsers, have refinished and restored the antique furniture themselves. Rooms (many of which have small balconies) are small, but in tip-top shape, and bathrooms sparkle. Though there’s an elevator, you’ll have to negotiate stairs to get to it. Best rates are on the hotel website.
