Romance and history in Saint-Germain-des-Prés
- 50 rooms and suites
- Cafe and piano bar
- Interior patio
Paris is a city of romance and culture and Saint-Germain-des-Prés has long been a hub for scholars, philosophers and writers. The Hotel d’Aubusson was once home to some of the city’s most influential figures in the art world, and walking through the grand solid oak carriage entrance feels like stepping back in time.
The 17th-century townhouse has retained many of its original features, including parquet flooring, wooden beams, Aubusson tapestries and an impressive fireplace made from Burgundy stone.
The Café Laurent has had many an intellectual sit at its tables and was one of the first places in Paris that was given the right to open all night long. The café was also a popular jazz venue and you can still catch live music here in the evenings.
The patio provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, but when you do want to go exploring, you’re within easy reach of the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, Notre Dame and the Luxembourg Gardens.
