I had a business meeting in La Defense and stayed here for one night. It was just behind the metro station Esplanade de La Défense (walking). There are few Indian restaurants in the same streets which are OK. The rooms were tiny but comfortable for one person.

Pleasant local hotel, and reasonably priced. 10-15 minute walk from La Defense Esplanade metro. Rooms on the small side, as you would expect, and not too much hanging space. Bathrooms very well appointed, though small. Beds comfy, room was cleaned to a good standard, and the AC worked well. Lift is very cosy (breathe in!). Basic buffet breakfast, which is... More

Great hotel to base yourself for a stay in Paris. Rooms are just as shown in the pictures (Oct 2014) and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble with decor. More than worth the extra money. Will return.

We stayed here for four nights on a Paris / eurostar break and found it was a lovely elegant hotel. The rooms were of a great standard, air conditioned and lovely bathrooms. We would happily stay again and found the area full of small bistro's and shops in the La Defense area, which is easily accessible on the metro.

The hotel itself is quite small, but the rooms are big. I liked it because it was very clean, quiet and the stuff was very friendly. The hotel is about 15 min from La Defense center. Around the hotel there are some nice restaurants and Puteaux itself is lovely place to take a walk. Good Breakfast!

Some reviews state that the metro is not very close to the hotel. It is less than 10 minutes by foot. Check Google Maps to determine if it is acceptable for you. (It was for us.) This is metro line 1, the most important metro line in Paris. The place was deserted, but we did not feel unsafe at any... More
