“Great Location, Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is my third or fourth stay at this hotel. I have recommended it to many friends, all of whom have loved it.

I do not think there is a better location in Paris. The Seine is right outside your door, and you are almost in the exact geographical center of the city. In the heart of St. Germain, and just a short walk to Luxembourg Gardens, and steps from multitude of cafes, the D'Aubusson is right there.

Though I like this hotel very much, the hotel needs a little work.

One of the nice things about this hotel is that the room sizes are noticeably larger than many of its left bank competitors; the standard and superior rooms are comfortable, relative to Parisian standards, and not cramped. Unfortunately, the room decor, which I have never loved, is looking a little tired, and is not nearly as nice as the common areas. My understanding is that they will begin room updates soon; they need to. And while our room was not cramped, it had a small dormer window, and a very cramped (though updated) bathroom, which, frankly, was one of the least comfortable bathrooms I have experienced. The hotel's management was very receptive to our comments, and graciously offered to move us, but as the hotel was very busy, we would have had to move twice in order to switch our room, something we did not choose to do. Well, sometimes you get the best room, and sometimes you don't. Management dealt with the situation wonderfully.

Additionally, there can be a lot of street noise at night with the window open. There are a few bars and restaurants that are louder than they used to be due to smoking laws, which forces everyone who smokes to do so outside (I have experienced this at multiple hotels in Paris recently); if you like a cool room, and are sensitive to noise, this might be a concern.

The service here is fantastic. The competence of the management and staff is excellent, though a few people could be a little warmer. Jean, the concierge, is fantastic.

All in all, this is an excellent hotel in a perfect location. I would not hesitate to recommend it. Once the rooms are updated, I will be returning.

But for now, at least, it is not my first choice. There are a couple of other places that I prefer, with beautifully done, though slightly smaller rooms, in quieter locations.

My wife and I just returned from our second stay at Hotel d'Aubusson. It has consistently been a great experience. The rates, especifically for a quality Paris hotel, are very reasonable. The rooms are clean, well-appointed and comfortable. And the showers have great pressure (nothing beats a terrific shower in the morning). There isn't a restaurant in the hotel, but room service is available--besdies, you're in Paris' 6th arrondissement that has many excellent bistros and restaurants within a short walk, including L'Atlas, Fish and Le Timbre (a little further), to name a few. And you're an equally short walk to Notre Dame, Louvre, Tuileries Garden, Musée d'Orsay, and just a little further to the Eiffel Tower (you'll feel better about yourself for buring those extra calories when you're eating your second croissant). And after a long day enjoying Paris, come back to the Cafe Laurent at the hotel for a relaxing night cap.

Room Tip: The rooms facing rue Dauphine are a little noiser at night. There is a lively Irish pub across the...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel D'Aubusson for 7 nights in April 2012 on our honeymoon to Paris and enjoyed every second of our time here! We chose an accommodation package which included tickets to the Louvre, a river cruise on the seine, private transfers to the airport, daily wine tastings and afternoon tea, incredible! Our room was on the small side but it was still very quaint and lovely with Hermes products in the bathroom and parisian inspired decor. We enjoyed the jazz singers on the weekend, our walks through the beautiful cobblestone streets, the amazing restaurants just a stones throw away and the always pleasant and helpful staff. We will definately be recommending this hotel to all our friends and family and cant wait to stay here again!

Loved this hotel! The location could not be better.....Approx. 1 block to the Seine and walking distance to all that Paris has to offer and if you want to take the Metro, its an extremely short walk to the St Germain or Odeon stations.....Jean and the staff was wonderful, and the breakfast in the morning was plentiful. Great meats, cheeses, warm entree selections and fresh squeezed juice. The room and bathroom were large by Europe standards and stocked with Hermes products. The lounge had nightly entertainment which was an added bonus. Would highly recommend.

I was pleasantly surprised by ambiance and quality of service at Hotel d'Aubusson. We arrived to Paris in late afternoon after a long trip from Normandy so a heartfelt welcome was lovely. Due to the oversight of our travel agent, room type was incorrect: we needed rooms with two beds but arrangements were made for one double bed per room. Management could not be more accommodating - we were given an upgrade to junior suits at deep discount and showered with attention. Even better, upon departure, it turned out that upgrade was gratis! Cannot imagine that we would be able to get this kind of treatment anywhere in Paris during the month of August when city is full of tourists... The hotel is located in St. Germain area and is close to numerous attractions. Hotel per se is in boutique category: rooms are decorated in different themes but motif of Aubusson tapestry is referenced everywhere. Wonderful bedding, Hermes toiletries, and fine chocolate at turn-down were added benefits. The hotel boasts an intimate courtyard where you can partake your meals, a lounge with live music, and nicely appointed common areas. We will definitely return!

Found the hotel by our travel agent's suggestion. Afterwards read reviews on this site.
The hotel is all that a boutique or any hotel should be. The personalized service, the greetings with a smile from the front desk personnel, the waiters at breakfast to the chamber maid, all ready to assist you makes this hotel unique.

Our bedroom was spacious enough to hold the two of us plus our son who visited us for 3 nights. The white marble bathroom has been all renovated with state of the art tub, shower (the best) and faucets. Breakfast was included in our winter special package, served in a most invited setting, with quality ingredients and served with class. Tre Chic! The hotel is decorated in the French classic style, with fresh flower arrangements throughout. In all, the details are made to please you and make your stay more comfortable. Our bedroom faced the street, could be a bit noisy if you have the windows open, but it did not bother us; it was nice to fall asleep with the sounds of this beautiful city. We are certain to stay at Hotel d'Abusson on our next visit to Paris!

I booked this hotel on a recommend from a friend, it looks like most people here agree - great spot. The location is perfect. The hotel is small, beautiful, with great staff to help you around the city. The stone, wood beams, and massive fire place added so much to our stay. If you want a nice getaway in Paris, away from the big chain hotels, this hotel is a must!
