Really great central location. Vibrant St. Germain-des-Pres a few blocks south, Latin Quarter a few blocks to the east. Notre Dame, Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, all easy walking distance. Ze Kitchen Galerie two blocks away was fabulous Asian-French fusion. Highly recommend as it tied with Guy Savoy for less dough. (Side note: Taillevent was a disappointment.)
Back to the hotel itself: nice enough in overall feel but closer to what I'd consider a 3 star, not 4. Standard room was decent but pretty basic and bland in decor. Not noisy at all, although we overlooked Rue Dauphine.
Breakfast was included for us but same thing everyday for a week got old.
Front desk staff mixed bag: one girl gave me wrong metro train directions, one young man was sweet and tried hard but not super knowledgeable, one guy (early 30's?) offered valuable info re Versailles being closed on Mondays when he overheard me talking to the other guy about going there the next day, which allowed us to go on Sunday instead and saved us the aggravation of going all the way out there only to be disappointed/frustrated.
No water one day when I wanted to shower at noon. I left the taps on and got water 10 mins. later. When inquired later, was told it was out for 45 minutes while being worked on. I realize it was an off time of day to shower, but if I'd been in a hurry, that would have been incredibly frustrating. Also, the water temp was preset to 38 degrees and was not hot enough and had weak pressure, while water from the hand-held head was nice and hot and strong pressure. A bit of a pain to have to use both in order to have a proper shower. Lastly, drain plug didn't work and the maid just pulled it out and left it on the sink after the first day when she saw that the tub wasn't draining.
Weirdly enough, though the sheets didn't feel rough to the touch, they made loud paper-rustling sounds when moving around during night. No problem for the asleep one; slightly irritating for the one TRYING to fall asleep.
Nice touch was that each day we got something different gratis: 1/2 bottle champagne, flowers, macaroons, fruit basket, jar of poached pears. And the usual chocolate covered almonds each night.
Hope this info is helpful, as I tried to provide different information than the standard reviews......

This hotel is in a great location in Paris and the hotel staff are very very nice. The room we got was facing street and was not the most calm room (but we booked last minute and it was Friday night - so I recommend telling to give them a room that is not facing street when booking if you are booking in advance). Still the room was comfortable and we had a very good stay.

For some reason there is no restaurant where you can have dinner but there is a in-room dining service available, which offers really good food. I will probably come back to this hotel again.

We spent a week in Paris at the Hotel d'Aubbuson. The location was great--only a few blocks from the Seine in St. Germain district. The hotel staff were warm and inviting. We were treated like family.

Before we left the states everyone warned us that the French would be unfriendly. We found just the opposite. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. simply treat people as you would like to be treated.
If you are looking for a nice hotel in a good location this it it.

My aunt and I stayed at Hotel d'Aubusson in March and our stay could not have been improved upon. Everything about the hotel is charming and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to smile and make sure we were comfortable and well cared for. The complimentary breakfast in the beautiful dining room was a great start to each morning.

Once outside the hotel, the location is perfect. You are a couple short blocks from Pont Neuf and all that lie near the Louvre, yet the hotel is nestled within a matrix of cafe's and boutiques. Boulevard St. Germain is two blocks in the opposite direction and Notre Dam and the lovely ile st Louis is a short ten minute walk.

I will definitely return!

I will always remember this hotel and most definitely will stay in this hotel. We booked hotel through Travel Agency here in US, however apparently our room was very small to fit a 8 years old kid which was very stressful to find out after 8 hrs flight. Hotel staff( don't remember his name) was extremely helpful and were able to upgrade our room to the junior suite. Excellent room and excellent service. Next time we are in Paris- we will stay in the same hotel.

I recently suprised my wife with a trip to Paris in March to celebrate our twenty fifth wedding anniversary and had chosen the Hotel D'Aubusson. Having booked the hotel in August of last year Jean and his conceriege staff stayed in contact answering all the questions about restaurants etc, including recommending the outstanding Taillevent.

The Hotel, its staff, location, rooms, breakfast, are, as other have pointed out, excellent. If you are interested in staying on the left bank, within easy walking distance of everything from the Deux-Magots to Notre Dame you should seriously consider this hotel. Pick an olderstyle room with the exposed beams and dont worry about a little music on a Friday or Saturday night

Thank you Jean and Audrey - you helped make our visit very special

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our France trip. Our welcome was smooth and genuine. The room was well equipped,although it looked like the bathroom needed some remodelling. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet.j Breakfast was good and the location was superb. We also enjoyed the perks that came with our package-tickets to the Louvre, a boat ride on the Seine, tickets to a Vivaldi concert at SAint Chapelle. The most ourstanding quality of this excellent hotel was the quality of the staff. They remembered our names,always greeted us, made some wonderful recommendations for restaurants, and were, in general, very responsive to our needs.They also responded immediately to our critique of the hotel. We will definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel others.
