“Very well appointed hotel that is convenient for La Defense”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I have now stayed in this hotel several times, and every experience has been good. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is a good range of TV stations (not the usual CNN, CNN or CNN if you are an English speaker). The staff are very friendly and efficient. The restaurant food is very good, as are room service meals. The hotel is right in the middle of La Defense, which is great if you want to be close to the various companies located there. But the area is soul-less in the evenings, with a very limited range of restaurants in the near vicinity. The RER station is about ten minutes walk, and there is a good shopping center about the same distance. As others have stated, the vehicle approach to the hotel is bizarre and very difficult to locate. Even the locals struggle at times.

4-night stay to celebrate wife's birthday - a tad of trepidation about being in the business area and away from the town, but needn't have worried - the staff were tremendous, warm, welcoming, hospitable and helpful. Mastered the Metro and town was a breeze. We have NEVER slept in a more comfortable bed and 'Housekeeping' were amazing - they kept making the bed with clean sheets (yes, we 'did' the environmental thing ...). The weather was freezing, but the room was welcoming and, exhausted, the bed was Heaven. Forget Agincourt, forget Crecy, the staff have more than made up for that unpleasantness ... and did I mention the bed? A surefire return destination.

Room Tip: West side, 1st Floor, overlooking the Esplanade - for the view alone, you won't regret it.

Booked a weekend in Paris for my partners 40th. Check in was smooth and professional. We were upgraded to a luxury room. Rooms were clean, spacious and up to standard and beds were like heaven! They sent up a complimentary bottle of champagne for my partner which was a lovely touch. We had a problem with our heating and a very poor experience with room service from the restaurant however we were impressed with the way the staff and guest relations manager (Albert Mèar) dealt with the situation. Metro couldn't be closer and it was quick and easy to get to and around central Paris. We would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure and were looking forward to our next stay.

This place is so well managed. Every single staff is trying to make your experience memorable, warm and pleasant.

I am so used to lifeless business hotels that I was not expecting more than super functional hotel. I found this but also a staff that makes you feel good when you come after a day of work.

Well done to all the staff at the restaurant and the reception. You made my stay so pleasant!

We were at Sofitel during the Christmas holidays, and overall really enjoyed our hotel experience. The ladies in reception were really helpful, as was the the staff at the restaurant. The rooms are modest in size, a little dark in my opinion but all furnishing, bathroom etc. of a good standard. The bed is of a high quality - super soft! I couldn't say a bad word about the front desk, who were always ready to help and welcoming.

the hotel is isolated but very modern and top ranked. small but comfi. top beds with very good service. BE AWARE - TAXI IS A PROBLEM. 20 min or more since called. Coffee place and lobby r available for meetings. take the train to the city, dont drive or use a taxi. very hard to find if u drive in or have a new taxi driver.

Room Tip: call taxi well in advance

Don't be put off by the location of this delightful hotel. It's only five minutes from the city on the metro. When returning from the city it's not easy to find the hotel. There are four exits at la defence station. You want exit 2..use the others and you will never find the hotel. Many, many thanks to the doorman at the sofitel who went out of his way to find me when I was hopelessly lost trying to find the hotel. The staff are the best I have ever come across. Very friendly and warm atmosphere, excellent rooms. Restaurant is a little pricey, but you don't get 3star prices at a 5 star hotel !!!
