This is the second year in a row that I have stayed here, just for the one night passing through France with my family. The hotel is very conveniently situated next to the autoroute. It has a secure car park, friendly staff, a pool, bar, restaurant, kettle and fridge in the room. However, and this is a very big however,... More

Stayed here on business as the company was only five minutes away. Good standard Novotel with everything you could need for a business trip, restaurant, bar, and the added bonus of an outdoor pool for the summer months. Downside is it's a long way from anything, with Versailles being the closest thing at around 30 minutes away by car. Having... More

We chose to stay somewhat far from Paris. But still close enough to come back and forth. One you are there, you become very dependent on the hotel, for there is nothing close by to buy a bread! Maybe was the time of the year and everyone left... We were 4 in a room, a sardine can size ! And... More

This hotel pretty much defines average for Novotel in France except that the location isn't near to anything (so it's great for a distraction-free conference and not so great for the average traveller.) The rooms are comfortable and have a small fridge, TV (several languages) and reasonable lighting and furniture. My room had a sofa that probably opened to a... More

This is a typical example of a mid-range chain-hotel. Clean, and with all the services you might need. Modern and well decorated if lacking in character. The rooms are a little on the small side, but well appointed. I only stayed here because my business colleagues had chosen to do so. I would not seek out a hotel like this,... More

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. Pullout sofa... More

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
