Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel d'Aubusson Paris
We recently returned from a stay at the Hotel d'Aubusson -- what a terrible disappointment! After reading so many positive reviews here, we decided to stay at d'Aubusson instead of our usual hotel in the Latin Quarter. While we absolutely loved the location . . .we were mind-blown by the cranky staff, terrible room (the "suite" which was not!) and the constant "oh-by-the-way" charges for everything. We travel to Paris fairly frequently and find the Parisians to be, generally speaking, friendly and helpful. At the d'Aubusson, no one ever cracked a smile and questions for help were met with cold stares and defensive attitudes. We were consistently charged for the "whole breakfast" when we only ordered coffee and tea and the mini-bar "police" came banging on the door the moment the do not disturb light was turned off. Also, despite using a local number, we were charged (without being informed of such) $20-$30 each time we signed on for internet access and . . .our favorite of the many "sock it to you" charges was that while we were proudly told that our suite had a DVD play, you had to PAY 10 euros to get the cables to use the DVD player.
When one is paying over $500/night at a supposed 4 star hotel one does not expect to be constantly surprised by petty hidden costs and ice cold attitudes.
The neighborhood is grand but there are several nearby hotels with much better rates and, hopefully, much better attitudes. Next time in Paris, forget the d'Aubusson!
We spent 6 nights at this beautiful hotel in "Old Paris". The staff was the best! Easy in the top 10! "I want to go back there!
My husband and I just spent four days of our honeymoon at this amazing hotel. The staff is helpful and friendly, the hotel is beautiful, the rooms spacious, and the location - a minute from Pont Neuf - is perfect. We arrived to roses (in honor of the occasion) and the hotel gave us a gift to commemorate the date of our wedding. We love this hotel and can't wait to come back!
February in Paris
As a lifelong dream, My wife and I along with another couple experienced Paris for a 6 night stay at the D'Aubusson. Arriving on the 20th of February, we had a wonderful 4 night stay while enjoying this very central location to the left bank sights and pleasures. Off to Normany for 2 nights and a visit to the D-day beaches, we were very pleased that the desk staff had found rooms for us at the D'Aubusson upon our return. A quick walk to Pont Nuef and Notre Dame is testimony to a convenient hotel. An excellent front desk with Sebastian and Augustine provideing many of the highlights of Paris in our inquirys.
The rooms are very clean and bathrooms wonderful. The decor is very refreshing and historic.The breakfast is a culinary delight of French cuisine; ample and delicious.
The down side is the very smokey bar area in the evenings as the smoke wafts through the hotel.
A wonderful place with first class amenities that makes us want to stay there again.
Luxurious small hotel with extraordinary staff
Because airfare in February is so reasonable, and it was the occasion of my 50th birthday, we (my two teenage daughters, my sister and brother-in-law and I) splurged on the Hotel d'Aubusson. Fine, quiet room with lush linens, perfect bath, beautiful lobby with fireplace and beamed ceiling, and very pleasant breakfast room. It is in a perfect location, just a block south of the Pont Neuf, easy walking distance to Notre Dame, Ste. Chapelle, the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, the RER train and the Metro. The neighborhood is charming, with delightful shops along winding cobbled streets, and famous cafes and restaurants, such as the Cafe Flore and Deux Magots. We had wonderful dinners at Allard and Balzar (waiters with Gallic humor), and wish we had time for Cafe Procope. However, there are many lovely hotels in Paris, and what sets the d'Aubsson apart is the friendliness and charm of the staff. Because it is a small hotel, you feel the staff knows you immediately. We were particularly fond of M. Silver, who we named the "Maitre du Chocolat" after he made the best hot chocolate for my daughters in the hotel bar.
My daughters (13 and 14 years old) said it was the best vacation they have ever had.
Visited the D'Aubusson in Sept 03 and LOVED every second. Beautiful, spacious rooms, VERY friendly staff, perfect location! When we return to Paris, we will stay here only! Loved it!!!
This is a great choice!
Fantastic hotel! Perfect location! Great Staff! This is a winner in our book! We stayed for 4 nights and wished we were there longer! Room was bigger than expected for Paris and we were in a standard double. It was simply decorated - not overly done. May try deluxe room next time. Very service oriented staff - went out of their way to help. The location is ideal -- we were just a few minutes away from everything. We will be back!!
Loved this hotel and its incredible location
We stayed here 3 years ago, and I'd have to agree with everything I've seen written about this hotel. The location is perfect, so close to wherever we wanted to go. Our room was huge, even by US standards, so was the bathroom. We were facing the road but triple glazed windows ensured we had no noise at night, none! The only negative I can say about the hotel is the high price for a mediocre breakfast.
My home away from home in Paris!
I'll never stay anywhere else again.
Why? Lovely, accomodating, helpful staff. Fun bar. Great champagne by the glass. Spacious rooms. Comfy beds. Well equipped bathrooms. Not obnoxious prices. Killer location. (1/2 block to Seine, 1 block to St.
Great location, fine service.
Stayed here 6 nights in June 2003. Great location 1/2 block to Seine. Close to Notre Dame & Louvre. Staff all speak English. The service was very good. The rooms are nice, large and the hotel has a nice courtyard & lounge. I'd stay there again, certainly a four star hotel.

... are the candles and statues, then of course the main Alter is set in the back and is something you just have to see to appreciate. The first thing Alix and I commented to each other about is what it would be like to attend a service at this cathedral, must be amazing. We continued on and lit our first prayer candle, that was really special. We admired all the stained glass, this will continue to be a common sight in these cathedral's of some magnitude that is hard to understand how ...
... been on my bucket list so we settled down to have a coffee and watch the craziness of the Arc De Triomphe. We were so hot, we ordered a coffee with ice but it was exactly that. A tepid coffee with a couple of ice cubes that lasted all of 30 seconds. The street side entertainment was great. Driving around the Arc consists of just going anywhere you want while tooting the horn as much as possible. Then add in some insane tourist who try to get their ...

I wasn't as bummed about not being on French TV as I was about bumbling! In College, I wrote a 10+ page paper on the Algerian War, in French. I had done a class presentation on Edith Piaf and how she was a lieu de memoire, in French. Now, I froze and couldn't believe that I let this opportunity slide by. I don't even know what ...

I walked from here to the bottom of Montmartre, but didn’t explore that area, as much as I would have liked to, but time was the factor. I had to leave a lot of things for next time.
I then wandered back to Place de la Concorde, where the Champs-Elysees ends, and jumped on the big Ferris wheel, Roue de Paris, to get a glimpse of Paris ...

The food was really nice, mum and I had the French onion soup with salmon to share, the Salmon had heaps of veggies and tasted delicious, so enjoyed the veggies.
