Parisian luxury hotel in Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Between the Louvre Museum of Fine Arts and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris sits the five-star Hôtel D’Aubusson in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. The 49 rooms, duplex rooms and junior suites in this Parisian city hotel are charming, have a modern French design and are somewhat flamboyant.

What travellers like about this little gem (or should I say “bijou”?) is that it truly is a peaceful oasis right in the middle of Paris. If the weather is nice, you can also enjoy a coffee in the courtyard and plan your next sightseeing stops. To make your visit even more relaxed, the hotel’s concierge service can help you make travel arrangements, book an in-room hairdressing or massage appointment or organise a babysitter for your little ones. What could be more romantic than an evening for two in the city of love?
