Past reviews are very accurate. We spent 3 nights in 2 rooms at the D'Aubusson in late December and everyone was very happy with the accomodations. We had rooms in both the new and old part of the hotel. Even the smaller rooms at this hotel are larger than the norm in Paris. Everything was very clean, nice Hermes toiletries were replenished as needed, large (though firm) beds, lots of closet space, plenty of towels and two robes, flat screen TV/DVD players (not sure if these are in all rooms?) and very well soundproofed. Great location for St. Germain, the Seine, Louvre, D'Orsay, Notre Dame, Cluny, etc., and just a few blocks (4 or 5) from the St Michel Metro. In all cases the staff was friendly and helpful, whether at the desk, breakfast, bar, or cleaning. Even though we were in smoking rooms (and don't smoke) there was absolutely no smoky residue or odor.
Winter promotion rates where $1 = 1 Euro, including breakfast, 1 day museum pass, champagne, and other amenities make things a bit more affordable. Breakfast was good but not lavish, (eggs, sausage, toast, pastries, juices, yogurt, cheese, coffee, tea, etc) certainly enough to get your day started, and acceptable when included in the room rate.
Minor issues that made me wish for a 4.5 rating category: Some stains on the light colored carpet in one room (but the room did feel very clean despite this), and a few mildew stains on the shower grout in an otherwise completely spotless bathroom. The rooms were very hot - we turned off the heating entirely and had the windows open a lot of the time. In some ways it's nice to come back to a warm cozy room after spending the day in 40 degree temps, but if you like to sleep cold, it means having windows open and resulting street noise. The street noise is completely silenced by the double windows otherwise.
Overall a great experience - we would go back.
