Hôtel d'Aubusson Review

The showpiece at this 17th-century town house in the heart of St-Germain-des-Prés is the stunning front lobby, spanned by massive beams and a gigantic stone fireplace reminiscent of French aristocratic homes of yore. Decked out in rich burgundies, greens, or blues, the bedrooms are filled with Louis XV and Regency antiques; even the smallest rooms are a generous size by Paris standards. Hermès toiletries fill the granite bathrooms. Behind the paved courtyard is a second structure with three apartments, all ideal for families. The hotel's Café Laurent hosts jazz musicians Thursday through Saturday evening, and piano on Wednesday.

    Hôtel d'Aubusson Review

    Great location. Helpful and courteous staff. Eat off premises, as their restaurant wasn't that great. However, wine tastings and mid-afternoon teas were great. Housekeeping could have vacuumed the floors in the rooms a little better, but overall would come back again. Did I mention the location?

    Hôtel d'Aubusson Review

    Telling the truth about the hotel. I used to stay there a lot and wanted to return there to spend Thanksgiving this year with my sister because my husband had recently died.Unfortunately,AFTER I cancelled the reservations I was informed that the entire amount I had been told I had to pay upfront to reserve this room (which was EUR 3,240.00 when I reserved it -- was NOT refundable!! The reason I had to cancel was because I got MRSA which is a highly contagious disease and had I entered Paris, I probaby would have been ordered to be quarantined in a hospital or at the hotel until I got better.

    I THIS THEIR BUSINESS PRACTICES ARE A DISGRACE AND I WILL FILE A LOT OF COMPLAINTS AND GENERATE A LOT OF PUBLICITY OF THEY DO NOT REFUND THIS!

    By the way, there is really nothing charming or special about this hotel. The only reason I used to stay there was because they allowed guests to bring dogs, if you stayed in the most cramped rooms in the hotel.

    TRAVELERS BEWARE: IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION, YOU WILL LOST ALL THE MONEY YOU HAD TO PAY UPFRONT TO MAKE THE RESERVATION.

    Style and Charm in the 6th

    This is a lovely small hotel in the bustling St. Germain des Pres area, only minutes from the Seine, close to the islands, Louvre, Luxembourg Gardens, cafes, bistros, boulangeries, patisseries, shops. Our room was nicely decorated and had ample space. The lobby is elegant and inviting.
    Listening to jazz in the evenings in the hotel's Cafe Laurent was an added treat.
    Staff couldn't have been nicer to us. We would definitely return here.
