Arrived at hotel from Orly airport via taxi and it cost 28 euro. We stayed at the Novotel for 3 nights and were happy with the hotel amenities. Reception staff were friendly and we particularly liked Victoria. They did have some confusion about our room bookings, but it was sorted without too much fuss. They gave a map of the area which was handy. The area is okay but is a little bit out of the main area of paris, but parts were within walking distance. There are some nice places to eat in this area. We were a bit scared of the metro as there were lots of seedy people down there and every corner smelled like urine so we used the 'hop on hop off' bus to get to the main touristy sights. The hotel is modern and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We had dinner at the hotel one night and that was okay. Staff spoke good English. Free wifi. There were a lot of drunks and groups of seedy looking people that we're hanging out the back of the hotel, so I would avoid the back entrance at night and all the time in general.
Overall good hotel with friendly staff, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
