My wife and I wanted to stay in a safe locality in Paris and this hotel fit that bill perfectly.The location is perfect as the hotel is a mere 15 minute walk from the La Defense metro station. The hotel in itself is very clean, the rooms while spartan are very clean, and the staff I'd like to single out... 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

Not sure how we ended up in this part of Paris,but it proved to be a decent base for a couple of days break. It's about a 10 minute walk from the nearest Metro at La Defense,and from there you can catch regular trains into town no problem,and La Defense itself is well worth a half day exploration. The hotel... More

Welcomed at this charming little hotel by a very helpful, English speaking young lady, who also later advised us on local watering holes. The hotel is a little way out from the City centre, but which is easily accessible via the Metro (directions below). We arrived early evening, so decided to stay in the immediate area on our first evening.... More

Stayed for one night on business; for the money, absolutely fine in terms of room size (don't need a cavern) and bathroom (though can see that the shower might be challenging for taller/wider people). Spotlessly clean and friendly staff are a real bonus. Only fly in the ointment, as already mentioned by a few reviewers was the less than reliable... More
