On November 30, 1900, the writer/bon vivant Oscar Wilde expired at this location at the age of 46 from cerebral meningitis. Of the location (then called Hôtel d'Alsace), Wilde said:

"My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or other of us has got to go."

Jim Morrison stayed at this location when he first arrived in Paris in March of 1971 before he moved to the right bank address of 17 rue Beautreillis.
