Stayed for 2 nights in a group tour. Our biggest let down was no air conditioning this time of year. We left window open one night but the spotlight outside lit up our room that we had to close window and curtain. Other wise nice settling in the country. One and half hour drive to Paris in traffic.

We've just returned from a trip to Disneyland Paris, and on our last day we stayed at this hotel, to visit Versailles. The hotel is placed in a small town, pacefull, good to relax and walking. It's a hotel wih base and first floor, although lift is just opposite reception, so we use scales because our room was just few... More

We stay here at least twice a year. We always arrive late at night. The staff are friendly and the rooms comfortable. In previous years they have run out of a few items at breakfast but this year they were more busy and did not appear to be running out of anything. Saclay is a nice quiet hamlet on the... More

No issues. 30-40 minutes train ride to Paris and 10 minutes car ride to Versailles Palace. Staff was very helpful and nice. Room a little tiny for a family of 4 but... More

We stayed here for 1 night to break the journey from Calais to the Dordogne. Hotel was easy to find and in a very pretty village just outside Paris. Easy access to main motorways. We were a family of 4 with 2 small children aged 2 and 3. Plenty of free secure parking available and check in was seamless, staff... More

We stopped at this hotel when traveling with National Holidays. What a nice hotel it is. It is set in its own lovely grounds with a open air swimming pool. Breakfast was excellent consisting of a host of fresh bread. Continental style or English style buffet.

I am a regular visitor to this chain and generally you get exactly what you expect. This was not our experience at Saclay. The hotel has lovely grounds with extensive sport/children's activities and large pool. The evening sunshine surrounds the outside terrace and bar service was good. However our evening meal could not have been worse. The service was rude... More

This hotel was nice and quiet in a village setting. Nice room but nothing special. Nice big breakfast area with good selection. 20 minute drive to Massy Palaiseau train station. About 30 minutes to Paris, Champ de Mars - Tour Eiffel train station then you are right in the heart of it.

Stayed there one night on a short trip to the nearby techno park. Everything was fine, room was good (the regular Novotel WW standard), food was OK. The only caveat was the old fashion AC system that could not be shut down... resulting into some permanent background noise. I also used their meeting facility which was really fine. I'll surely...
