“Friendly and functional!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2010

This was our third time in this hotel-which is a statement in itself. The location and service are both fantastic. We've encoutered the same staff each time, all of whom are fantastic, and couldn't be more helpful, except the night porter whose english isn't great and isn't really too sure what a smile is.
The location is ideal-its in a suburban/business district outside of Paris, only 5 minutes max from the centre. The 73 bus goes from directly across the road from the hotel, but I think the metro is quicker and cheaper generally, plus the bus only runs until 9pm. The metro/RER station is a five minute walk from the hotel, left to the top of the street, left again and cross the road, just before the monoprix supermarket is an esculator going up. Keep going up (3sets) and the giant thumb is outside the station. Here is also the Grand Arc and le Quatre Temps-which was built as the largest shopping centre in europe. Needs at least a day of devotion to get to explore all of the shops but great for more reasonable prices than in Paris itself.
We went in December the last time, and there was a huge Christmas market held outside the shopping centre which was great. Loads of crafts and food and full of little gems.
From the train station there is a direct train to Disneyland (Marne le Vallee-Chassey) which is 45 minutes away-and €36 return adult, or €7 for 12-26yr olds.

The first time in the hotel our room was much better than the following stays, but was still fine. The bathrooms are very small, and the bed/pillows weren't very comfortable, but fine for a long weekend. There is a small swimming pool on the lower floor, we only went once, but it was very cold and completely abandoned.

All in all this is perfect for a place to lay your head, Not great for families, but perfect for those who are visiting to have the real Paris experience

Oh and half way up those esculators at the monoprix supermarket is a small pizzeria-very cheap and lovely!

Arrived at the hotel to a most un helpful night attendant. He advised me that I would need to pay for the hotel even though I had already paid for it and I wouldn''t get into my room at midnight in Paris if I didn't so I had no other choice. There was 4 of us so it was a bit of an extra expense. Needless to say I was very unhappy. First thing in the morning I went down to the reception very angry and wondered how I was going get round this.

Then all came good. I was greeted by a very helpful member of staff. I wish I new her name as I would recommend her to her bosses for promotion. She spoke perfect English and refunded my money instantly. We also got upgraded to a better room as our shower was broken in the first.

This hotel is perfectly situated and only 3 stops from the centre of Paris. It has everything you need and is well worth the money.

Over all had a great trip and would certainly return to this hotel. Also if the management of the Citea are reading this then please pass on my thanks to the member of staff (female) who was working throughout the days between 8th and 11th of October.

There is nothing really charming about this hotel, really. On the other side, the romms are functional, clean and the free Wifi works reasonably good. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, including a supermarket and McDonalds. You need to walk about 10 minutes to the RER and Metro stations of La Defense. The male service staff is not really friendly, just use this hotel to sleep but don´t bring your partner along.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2009

it was tricky at start to find the hotel. went a litle bit lost, asked a young couple how to get to the hotel but didnt know how. luckily had a map, they tried to help me- but with their broken english and my broken french- they felt it's going no where. so they told me:"we live nearby, come with us, we will take the car and drive you there". I was a bit worried, but said OK. and they were SO SO CHARMING to take me to the hotel, at midnight and refused to accept anything from me! they made my love the French people!!!
but back to the hotel description- you exit the RER station in exit A, in front of you should be the finger statue and the hilton. you go straight ahead when the railway station is at your back- it is a pedestrian area only till you get to the hotel. when you get to the Pole Universite Leonard Da Vinchi, you turn left and walk down a wide passage which curves right. you get to a traffic light, cross the street and walk further straight and the hotel is next to you at the other pavement. 7-10 minutes walk.
about the hotel- you have free WiFi- very reliable and fast. that's the only Pro.
The pool is no bigger than a pond. didnt even try it.
had at the beginning a single room with a single bed.. changed that and moved to the top floor- the 9th. with a big balcony.
the room is not clean at all. i dont really know what the original colors of the carpet are- just used my flipflops in the room...
the kitchenette is nice, but when your neighboor cooks fishes when you want to sleep - you smell it!
the bathroom is tiny and the bed is not the most comfortbale but not too bad.
the style of the room is very seventies with lots of cheap plastic as furniture...
no english speaking TV channels, and the reception staff not always speak English.
though the are is residential, the street is noisy in the morning with the pavement cleaners and the garbage trucks- so if you sleep with your windows open you hear it all. if not- than the room is too hot and not ventilated.
should I come back here again? never. i rather pay more and get the value of my money.
i paid a nightly rate of 70 euros for a double room.
