“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We couldn't fault our stay at Sofitel La Defense. Every single member of staff we encountered was friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotless, had great facilities and felt really luxurious. It is a little way out from the centre of Paris but 15 minutes on the Metro and you're right in the heart of the city. Our package included a bottle of champagne which was sent up to our room when we wanted it and was the icing on the cake. A wonderful stay and we highly recommend this hotel. Fantastic!

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and everything was top quality. The young man on reception listened to my requests for a quiet room on a high floor and that is exactly what we got, along with a lovely view. The area is quiet and the metro is just 300 metres away. There is everything you could wish for in the room and comfort is top priority. Only one tiny complaint - 15 Euro's for a glass of wine! I got an excellent bottle of Cote du Rhone at the little supermarket around the corner for less that 4 Euro's!

Room Tip: If you need a good nights sleep ask for a quiet room and the higher the floor the better the view.

Its very nice location and area (no cars around) service, rooms, food, leisure, business everything its Top Level. Price its lower than all quality of service. Its one of best hotel chains in Europe. Accor-Sofitel group pays much attention for guest services and keeping us smiling and happy. Breakfast was very tasty and good quality in exclusive desingned restaurant.
All Paris seems near us while you see old and new Truph Arcs on same line crosing the hotel avenue. Champs Elysee its just minutes to walk across river.

Room Tip: Best if available we got Paris center and river wiev rooms

chose this hotel as the opening hotel for our 3 weeks trip to europe - it was such a lovely experience. After spending more than 13 hour of flight and directly walking around the city until late at night, the first night in Paris was completed by a really really great sleep at the hotel. Not really care about the location, mind you that is quite a distance from the city center, but it was really a great hotel with a great service and the subway is just a stone away, so no biggie there. We got an upgrade which is of course a really nice addition to our satisfaction with the hotel. Nonetheless, i think the room is quite spacious compared to the hotel that i had at downtown few years back, and the amenities are great too.

This hotel is rated as a 5 star hotel. The question is by whom? The hotel took an hour to get the booking straightened out. The room service was often late and cold. Even though they advertise 24 hour room service, you are left with a few cold sandwiches in the evening. Hard to get a taxi to the center of Paris - at least 30 euros! Then, that takes 25 min or so to arrive. Rooms are below standard compared with other Sofitel hotels that I have stayed at. The restaurant ran out of eggs , sausages, and bacon at breakfast. This is a place to avoid at all costs! There are 3 star hotels that offer superior grade accommodation in Paris.

Whilst not in the centre of Paris, the hotel is very close to the metro and a quick journey to the Arc de Triomphe.

Hotel is really nice and the rooms very comfortable. Staff are wonderful.

Highly recommended and better than the nearby Novotel

Room Tip: Away from lift
