We have stayed at the D'Aubusson twice before and have always been happy with the hotel. This time was different!
On the weekends they have a jazz combo in the bar.....it attracts a large and lively crowd. The music is very loud and can be heard in a majority of the rooms. We checked in about 7:00 in the evening after taking a train from Switzerland. They "upgraded" our superior room to a deluxe and we went up to our very large, lovely room. The only problem was it was on the first floor right over the night club. The music was very loud, and the room was actually vibrating. We called down to say thanks for the upgrade, but no thanks. They switched us to the same room on the second floor and we did not hear any music so we thought we were fine in that room. Well, the band must have been taking a break because when we returned from dinner around 10 pm, we could hear the music again. It was late and we were tired so we decided to deal with the noise and speak to the manager in the morning. The music did not stop until about 12:30....neither of us slept well, and the next morning we went down to speak to Jean the manager. He was very nice and sympathetic and said this is a common problem on the weekends. He suggested that next time we come on a weekend we should request a quiet room away from the club. I don't think there will be a next time.
Long story short, he tried to find us another room, but the only two available were not acceptable, as one was tiny and the other was in the same area as the club.
Luckily, the Relais Christine around the corner had one room available for the other two nights, and we grabbed it. Jean was sympathetic and said he understood why we needed to check out and move for the last two nights.
On the positive side, Jean could not have been nicer and more helpful. But, I think the hotel needs to decide if wants to be a night club (I imagine they make a lot of money from this) or a hotel.
So I would just caution you not to book this hotel on a weekend or make sure you can get a quiet room. Or do what we did.....stay at the comparable hotel around the corner, the Relais Christine which could not have been better.
