When known as the Hôtel d'Alsace, Oscar Wilde spent his last days there in room 16, famously remarking "I am dying beyond my means". Other former residents include Marlon Brando, actress and singer Mistinguett, and writer Jorge Luis Borges, who said it seemed to have been "sculpted by a cabinet maker". The hosting of Borges in this hotel was not by chance: when he was nine, he translated Wilde's "The Happy Prince" to the Castilian and since then he had become a big fan of his work; Borges wanted to die where the writer of his childhood also died.
