Expert review of Hôtel Caron de Beaumarchais

A lovely, good-value time capsule in the Marais.

Walking into this hotel is a bit like stepping into an 18th-century stage set, so it's a great place for absorbing the Marais's historic atmosphere. The hall, with its delicate wallpaper, caned sofa and a harp next to the reception desk, is indeed theatrical in hommage to playwright Beaumarchais, author of the then-radical The Marriage of Figaro who lived up the street, and I love the meticulous attention that has been paid to every detail.

Location: 

On a lively, historic Marais thoroughfare, perfect for exploring the area's museums, bars and shops.

Bedrooms: 

The19 pretty bedrooms are small but deliciously romantic and superb value, with exposed beams, sprigged curtains, antique desks and crystal-drop chandeliers, although they have also modernised with WiFi, flat-screen TV and air conditioning. Streetside rooms are slightly larger than those overlooking the courtyard, though might be too noisy for light sleepers.
