“Clean hotel with lots of professional front office staff helping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

Found this hotel on expedia. This was during witsun so my other favourite hotel was booked out. The weekend rate was 100 Euros which was ok.
The hotel is equipped with parking at 15 euros a day. The parking is fairly easy to find but you have to follow the signs closely. It weas a bit difficult to get from the car to the hotel with a lift and then stairs then through some pededistrian passage, where some weird people hung around. The reception is quite well thought out in terms of corporate image, with lights, design, furniture all fitting together in a very modern design. The staff at the front are "copious" young and professional.
Rooms are clean with a nice functional design. Tea and coffee are available in the room.
My travelling companion really liked breakfast which included fry-ups (which he liked) and also cereals, breads, fruit etc. I personally missed more savoury stuff like salami (they had ham and turkey), pate and more cheese variety but overall it was ok and others seemed to really like it.
At night in La Defence restaurants close at 11 pm which was a surprise. The hotel has some fridges with sandwiches and beverages in such a situation.
There is supposed to be a bus from the metro to the hotel but we didnt see any signs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2011

If this is your first trip to Paris to see the sites, I would not recommend staying here.

Pluses:
The garden cafe next door is highly recommended.
The fitness facility is nice
The rooms are spacious (for Paris) and clean
Quiet

Minuses:
It's a good 10 - 15 minute walk to the metro, to the end of one of the metro lines.

Stayed here for 4 nights and initially apprehensive about stories of stolen items.however u can keep your valuables in the safe provided,I guess it helps that I left my big purchases till the last day so I did not experience any theft.

The reception staff were efficient but a tad too business like and lacking in personal touch. There is a shuttle to n from the la defense metro which is very convenient to visit the different sights of Paris.the shuttle was punctual and the driver was perhaps the most helpful and sincere staff of the hotel.
The best thing abt this hotel is the Carrefour supermarket just located at the mall behind the hotel :)
