“Excellent Business Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I have stayed a couple of times at Mercure. Slam bang in the business district with cosy rooms (in Europe, cosy means small :)) and an excellent buffet breakfast. Reasonable and good restaurants nearby. The room was well maintained and kept clean at all times. If i have to nitpick then it would be good to have a shower curtain so as to not mess up the floor with water while bathing. The shuttle service is a thoughtful addition and very regular. All in all, good value for money especially in a city like Paris.

Room Tip: Select a room that overlooks the street

We stayed at this hotel as part of our Trafalgar tour of Europe. The hotel was very clean and modern. The rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable.

It is not located in the heart of Paris, but is in la Defense, but with our guided tour, this did not matter to us. The area of la Defense is very safe, and we like that.

We stayed n this hotel on our last 2 nights of our awesome trip. Thank goodness that the hotel didn't disappoint us and ruin our trip. The room was perfectly alright beside being a little small as we shared the room with 3 beds. The room was well cleaned thou and the room service was good. Breakfast was good when there's a long queue, the staff will serve us with good smile.

Stayed here w/c 10th December for a 2 day business trip. The hotel is in a great location for La Defense, just 5 - 10 mins walk away. Inside the hotel the lobby and bar are average at best, modern but with a cold plastic feel. Strangely the corridor carpet on the room floors is absolutely horrendous, so bad it's worth mentioning - I can only imagine the hotel chose a selection of off cuts to keep costs down. My room was poor. Quite small and dingy and In desperate need of modernisation. The bathroom seemed clean but very old fashioned. The bed and the furniture were very 80's. Probably won't stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here unless you have to or unless you can get a really good rate.

Stay in the hotel from 28 Nov - 7 Dec. Was disappointed to find out that cash of SGD$250 dollar was remove from my wallet kept in my luggage. Understand that it is my responsibility to keep luggage lock, but feel disappointed, especially in such reputable hotel.

Bus service from Metro to Hotel after dark is unacceptable. Metro station waiting area is poorly lighted. Standing there in the dark is uneasy and dangerous. When the transport arrive, you can sense unhappiness of the driver. The short trip was rocky and hard braking was done throughout. Upon arrival at hotel, driver got down and slam the door shut, walking to hotel without even checking on us.

Dear Sir,

We would like to make an inquiry about your comments. Why did not you say anything at the hotel ? When did you notice that something was missing in your room ? Why did not you go to the Police station ? There is a safety deposit box in each bedroom. Please give us an answer as soon as possible ... Sincerely yours,
The hotel Management

stayed here with a number of colleagues for a conference at our nearby office. This hotel was chosen as it's barely 5 minutes' walk to our office. The hotel itself is gargatuan, with over 500 rooms spread over 12 floors. The building is circular, and all rooms appear to be identically sized - half face inwards, over the building's interior, and the remainder look out at the not-so-beautful suburb of Courbevoie and the La Defense concrete jungle. I booked a Privilege room, which gave me a 9th floor view of the Eiffel Tower far in the d'istance. Along with this high floor and the best view the hotel can offer, these rooms come with bathrobe and coffee machine, plus free soft drinks in the minibar. The hotel itself is a pretty standard mid-range chain hotel. The rooms are spacious by Paris standards, and clean. Breakfast is a typical buffet affair. The hotel also has a large bar, gym and hammam, although I sampled none of these. I'll probably stay here again, mainly due to the convenience of not having to take the Metro to get to the office, but the hotel itself doesn't have any obvious drawbacks.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Privilege room and make sure you choose an odd-numbered room as these all face o...
