Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent hotel. The rooms are nice-sized by Paris standards, clean and comfortable, service is excellent and breakfast is good (but not as good as it once was). The location in the heart of St. Germain can't be beat and the jazz lounge is very popular with guests and locals as well. Our criticism focuses on room value. We booked a deluxe room on a summer package at 395 euros a night for four nights. Upon check-in, we were taken to a two level room--bathroom and living area on the first level and king-sized bed in the loft. Due to the extremely low ceiling in the loft, I knew that at 6'1'' I was at serious risk of bumping my head, especially getting out of bed. So we rejected the room. No problem. We were transferred immediately to another room, less spacious but nice enough. Suffering from jet lag, we simply assumed that this was a "deluxe" room too. Our stay was enjoyable.
Paris was our first destination on a fifteen day trip. It was also our final destination. During the trip, we decided to return to the d'Aubusson for our final night. We booked a "superior" room on the summer package at 280 euros. Curiously, our superior room was larger than our deluxe room two weeks earlier. In fairness, our first room had a nicer bathroom but not 115 euros/night nicer--not by a long shot. Even considering the possibility that prices were a little higher in early July than late July, this huge price differential for practically the same room is troubling. So, before booking a room reservation at the d'Aubusson--which we still recommend--call or email the hotel to determine the difference in size and amenities for superior versus deluxe room. If our most recent experience is typical, you should be perfectly happy in the lowest-priced superior room.
