“4 star experience 5 star prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We shared a couples break together and managed to book what we thought was a great deal through Lastminute. Arrival to the hotel from Gare Du Nord was fine by taxi but we were somewhat bemused by the underground tunnels. The hotel staff were very welcoming at the desk and our room was pleasant and comfortable. The evening bar service was courteous and food arrived quickly after order but the area lacked ambience. Breakfast the following morning was varied but as we came towards the end of service a lot of the buffet platters were empty and there was no offer to fetch us anything we might want. Drinks in the bar were extremely expensive with 2 gin and tonics and two soft drinks costing 60euros! No nibbles offered at the bar which I would expect with a 5* and those sorts of prices. We took drinks to our room on sat evening and the dirty glasses were left by the cleaner outside our room, still there when we left on the Monday. Turndown of beds meant nothing on first evening, a single chocolate for one of us on the 2nd evening and on the third evening one each. For the prices charged it is the attention to the little details that makes it more of an experience and a 5* feel. On this occasion we did not experience and would not look to book a Sofitel hotel again.

This hotel is not in the center of Paris. It is a short Metro ride outside, and in the heart of La Defense, and only about 100 meters away from the Metro. Its location probably accounted for the excellent rate we got for 4 nights. In August it was an Oasis of Calm. The staff were always ready to assist - everything, no matter how odd the request, was never a problem for them. They clearly believe that helping their guests is important. Our room was spotless enough to impress my wife. It was also large enough to house a roll-away bed. The hotel is probably used to catering to business guests given its location but they clearly value vacationing guests too. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Choose this hotel as we had stayed in a Sofitel in Paris before and the 3 for 2 nights seemed good value.
Excellent service and we had a lovely time.Shame the valet car parking was so expensive - anyway Froome won the TDF so never mind.
Hope to be back in 2014!

Even though outside central Paris this hotel turned to be very close to everything using the metro with a station right by the hotel. Rooms are large by Paris standards and are nice and comfortable. we thought that the bed was too soft which may be our personal preference. Breakfast is decent - not more. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Overall - great deal and pleasant experience but compare to other Sofitel's we've been to - not a 5 stars one.

Visited Paris end of May and stayed at this wonderful hotel. Even though the location of the hotel was not in the shopping district, it was quite close to metro station - a 1-2 minute walk. The metro station was only 4-5 stops away from Champ Elysees. There was also a large shopping mall 1 km away......

The rooms were big and nice. Confortable bed and pillows. Large toilet. Breakfast was nice with excellent crispy croissants. The hotel staff were nice as well.....Really enjoyed our stay here in Paris.
