“Alright for a night or two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Stayed for one night, on business, one VERY HOT night! it was scorching Paris and the first thing i did was turn the air con on, which didnt seem to do anything, even though I had it on for a couple of hours while i went for dinner (personal preference, but i like my rooms cold for sleeping). A colleague had no problem with his. the size of the room was to be expected for Paris, small but well formed. I had a view of the Eiffel Tower, which in the evening is nice to view. service was VERY friendly and everything was explained to us in decent English, for which I am very appreciative. Breakfast is cold selection of croissants, meats cheeses, cereals coffee... continental (as we would describe it in the UK), pretty standard. I dont believe there was a hot option.

Room Tip: my room had a view of the tower, but was above a busy street

This is a decent hotel, not too far (25 min walk) from la defense, and reasonable in price for the location. Free Internet, an decent room: well equipped, clean, decent size,...

My daughter and I stayed here recently and really enjoyed it. The concierge apologised for the smallness of our room and offered to change it the next day, but it wasn't too small and the stunning view of the Eiffel Tower made us stay in it for all four nights! Staff were very helpful and pleasant, breakfast was more than adequate and the room/bathroom were spotlessly clean.
Tip: there is a handy bus stop under the flyover just across the street from the hotel, so no need to walk very far at all to access some public transport. The receptionist even drew us a map!
Would happily go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

Just arrived back from a 3 night stay at the Kyriad and it was a fantastic hotel. Clean, modern excellently run with very very helpful and polite staff. It is highly recommended. 10 minute walk to main Metro station, a lovely quiet area giving you a sense of France without the tourists everywhere! Rooms were spotless and fresh, tea and coffee in the room, clean towels everyday, new modern bathroom. Cannot recommend highly enough, especially for the price we paid.

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a 4-night stay from 10 June to 14 June as it was a reasonable price and seemed fairly close to Paris city center. If you are planning on using public transport, be prepared for some travel. Turns out, you have to get a 10-20 min. bus ride to the nearest Metro station and then take another 20-30 min. train ride to the sites around the city. The bus ride for the two of us was 3.60EU one-way...so a total of 7.20EU per day for 4 days, 28.8EU on bus rides alone. Not cheap! Despite the distance however, the hotel was clean and quiet and there was a reasonable selection of different restairants nearby including Chinese, Sushi, Pizza/Italian, and a Pizza Hut.

We booked a room with a double bed...which meant two singles pushed together, which would've been fine if the hotel room didnt have wood floors. The beds would slide apart on the floor at the slightest movement whether you were sitting down, getting up, or just turning over...creating a gap between the beds which made cuddling with my honey close to impossible.

They offered a continental breakfast (pastries, croissants, cereals, juice, coffee, etc.) for 10EU per person which I though was extortionate. I just couldn't justify that price for pastries and cereal!

Overall, this was an average hotel in an average location for an average price. Guess you get what you pay for. We have decided if we vacation to Paris again we will get a hotel more centrally located to the city center, even if that means paying more.

We stayed for 4 nights in the beginning of June 2011. We were offered the choice of a room overlooking the Eiffel Tower or a quieter room overlooking a courtyard even though the area surrounding the hotel is by no means noisy. The staff were extremely helpful, the rooms were not large, but nice and very clean. Breakfast for €10 consisted of a veriety of cold cuts of meat, cheese, hot bread rolls and croissants as well as other pastries, fresh fruit, yoghurt and of course the usual breakfast cerials, tea and coffee etc.
The only criticism is that the breakfast room could have been a bit larger and the fact that that the hotel is not very close to the city centre and about half an hours walk to the nearest metro station.
Apart from that, full marks

I stayed at Kyriad La Defense for a week during business travel and meetings in the area. The room was small, but I had a nice quiet room overlooking the courtyard. A co-worker opened his curtains with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower. Staff was very friendly and helpful, including room service. Breakfast was a pleasure with a selection of meats, cheeses, croissants. I enjoyed the cafe au lait! Good restaurants within walking distance and a 15-20 minute walk to the Metro to catch the train to Paris. A pleasant stay and I would stay again for the price.
