Expert review of Hôtel d'Aubusson

A classy period residence with a risqué past in the heart of St-Germain.

Once through the tall carriageway entrance, there's an instant feeling of calm in the beautiful flagstoned reception of this 17th-century hôtel particulier, which still has an aristocratic aura. Its ground-floor bar, Café Laurent is intricately linked to St-Germain's intellectual history: first as a rendezvous where Enlightenment philosophers discovered coffee, and after the war as site of the infamous Taboo Club, a Sartre hangout.

Location: 

On a busy St-Germain street, well-placed for both St-Germain's café and shopping attractions. At the end of the street, Pont Neuf bridge brings you to Ile de la Cité and the Right Bank.

Bedrooms: 

The 49 bedrooms are high-ceilinged and romantic, but also practical with minibars and mahogany desks. Some of the good-sized deluxe rooms have four-poster beds, and most bathrooms have natural daylight. Attic duplexes have a more modern feel and can sleep a family.

Public areas: 

On the ground floor, the beautiful salon is all about period splendour with a vast stone fireplace, ancient beams and Aubusson tapestries. There's a small paved courtyard.

Eating and drinking: 

Café Laurent (open to non-residents, too) has a good if pricey selection of wines, Champagnes and cocktails and programmes live jazz on Thursday to Saturday evenings. There's no restaurant but light meals can be provided by room service.

Service: 

Efficient if slightly corporate feeling front desk.
