The reception area of Étienne and son Alain Bigeard's small Marais hotel looks like a salon of 200 years past, with its Louis XVI fireplace, spinet, wafting classical music, antique card table on one corner, and garden statuette in the other.

The rooms are outfitted as befits an 18th century Marais townhouse—wood ceilings and a touch of gold about the carved filigree on curving chair backs and mirror frames.

Rooms on the front are largest, expect on the top floor where the sloping roof cuts into rooms 60 and 61 (but they do get the best Parisian rooftop views).

Rooms overlooking the garden are also smallish, but set up to feel cozy rather than confining. If you want a small balcony with table and chairs, book a room on the 2nd, 5th, or 6th floors.

For such genteel style, the price is hard to beat.
