Hotel D'Aubusson Paris

My husband and I are planning a trip to Paris late December/early January. Anyone out there ever stay at the Hotel D'Aubusson? Comments or suggestions for other hotels in the St. Germaine area greatly appreciated.

Hi Kathryn, I haven't stayed there, a nice person on this board has and I am sure will answer, but..I always stay right around the corner on rue Jacob and we have looked into the D'Aubusson-it is beautiful..the street is great,ending at the Seine.There are some wonderful restaurants on the street and all around that neighborhood.When we wanted to stay at the D'Abusson the price was a little high, we have stayed at the Hotel D'Angleterre on 44 rue Jacob, also the Lutece on the Ille St Louis, the Danube on rue Jacob-which had a wonderful staff but was the least expensive..they are all in great locations.These days we only look hotels in that neighborhood, it is the best!I have plenty of restaurant recommendations, as this was the 5th year we have gone to Paris in the fall~hope this helps some.C

Kathryn,

I've stayed twice at D'Aubusson, in September, 1997, and October, 2000.

When I booked it for the first time, I just did it because only D'Aubusson, among the 3 stars hotels in the 6eme (although D'Aubusson is a 3 plus, or a 4 stars), had a free room. I payed less than 200 dollars then, for a standard double, for single use. I loved the hotel, the sophisticated, though discreet, ambiance, and the brand new elevator, since the building had been remodeled a short time before my stay.

Then, in Oct, 2000, I booked a Grand De Luxe room, which cost nearly twice the standard rate, and was disappointed with the size of the room.

I love the hotel, the service, the lovely piano bar, the bathrooms, since everything, although "very French", is so comfortable, from the soundproof windows to the bed, from the bathroom size and fixtures to the elevator. However, I wouldn't book a Grand De Luxe again. A Superior room is nearly the same size, and more reasonably priced.

An added bonus to Americans are the non smoking rooms, and the English speaking (perfect English) staff. They are all very helpful, and their recommendations are totally reliable.

I also like the location very much, since it's very close to Rue de Buci and the market, the Seine River (barely 0,2 miles from the hotel), the dry cleaners over the corner, the handfull of restaurants a few steps from the hotel (the Procope included), the metro stop, at about two (small) blocks from the hotel door.

I also like the geographic situation. It's not far from the 7eme, D'Orsay and Tour Eifeel, and it's close to Notre Dame, Ille de St. Louis, and even the Louvre is walking distance. Since I rather walk than using the metro in Paris, when it's not raining, I value the Aubusson location very much.

There are other hotels in the area, like Relais Christine, the Buci, the Relais St. Germain, all of them quite close to D'Aubusson, and all 3 stars plus, or 4 stars, but I prefer D'Aubusson, although I haven't stayed in the others I mentioned. The Relais Christine is maybe worth of checking.

Check the Winter promotion at D'Aubusson.

I hope it helps.

Regards,

Kathryn,

The Hotel D'Aubusson owns ( or D'Aubusson owner owns..) another, 3 stars hotel at Rue Jacob, Le Millesime, almost as much as nice..and cheaper than the older sister..

http://www.millesimehotel.com

They are offering promotional winter rates, too. Check them out.

Enjoy your Parisian stay. I'm jealous.. : ^(

I stayed at the d'Aubusson last Dec and loved it. My friend and I had a "superior twin" room which was a nice size, much larger than the average double room in left bank hotels. Large, modern bathroom as well. Room decor
"old world" charming, but new, as if it had just been redone. Rue Dauphine is a small street with direct access to Pont Neuf; on weekday mornings we heard an occasional car horn, but no "roar" of traffic. Hotel sells the museum pass in the lobby, which is an additional convenience. Breakfast available, it's pricey but very high quality, either the continental or the full buffet. Good coffee too.

I stayed at the D'Aubusson and loved it ... great location, the staff friendly and helpful! I would stay there again. I booked one of the most expensive rooms and it was very small. It was about $350 US. I check out the Christine while I was there and it did not appeal to me as much. K

Just for a contrast,I paid $250 for a "superior twin" a year ago and the room was fairly large, as mentioned above. Two twin beds, the usual other furniture, a side table with two chairs, and plenty of walking around room. Good-size bathroom too: large tub and shower, large sink, towel warmer, side table, etc.
Go figure.

I'm also interested in the Hotel D'Aubusson. I was reserved at La Villa on Rue Jacob back in September, a trip I was not able to take. Anyone have an opinion on that hotel and whether D'Aubusson is a better idea? I am concerned particularly with bed sizes, since my husband is tall and broad.
