“Oasis in the City (2)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

I recently stayed in this hotel again. Once again it was a pleasant trip.
What amazes me is that the staff still remember me despite having so many other guests coming through their doors all the time. As I said before, very friendly and efficient staff.
I do note that, in common with many hotels,reading is very difficult in the rooms - the lighting is set mostly for "mood" and trying to find a bright light is hard. There are two, but they are not ideally placed!
Apart from that complaint, it was a good experience and I would surely return if I need to go again.

We spent one night at this hotel as we were en route...We would have easily given it a 5 if we didn't face difficulties getting there and if it didn't seem so far from the center. I guess it would have been better suited if we weren't traveling by public transportation.
However, it was an excellent stay. We stayed on the renovated section and enjoyed the shower - nice updated bathroom! The room was also very spacious.
Now the hotel staff was one of a kind...real warm and friendly. Upon checking out, the young man was so kind and took his time to assist us in finding the best route out on Sunday (but it turned out that the bus does actually work on Sundays :) We also enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. The meal was very enjoyable and the waitress was very pleasant.
Would we stay here again? Welllll.....seeing that we know exactly how to get there now, we just MIGHT... The hotel's service and wonderful staff has us considering this hotel for future travels despite the location.

I stayed in this hotel for a day on 3 - 4 Oct. It is a good choice of hotel to stay for business, located within 5-10 minutes walking distance from main train station, and price is very attractive when compared with the hotel price in Paris city. The lunch served by hotel restaurant is one of the best for the price and vicinity, this is the 2nd time I had lunch in the same restaurant, and I can say the the food quality is excellent. The room is clean, comfortable and fairly modern. However, service standard of reception staff clearly has room for improvement. I called front desk from my room in the evening asking for help, and was put on hold & forgotten while reception staff chit chat away. Also, housekeeping tends to keep knocking on your room door in the morning.

The best thing about the hotel was the staff! They are super friendly and always trying to help you. Rooms had enough space, desk and sofa. I personally found the bed a bit too hard, and I prefer 100% cotton sheets:)
The location is good since it is within walking distance from the train station and I really liked the food, desserts and breakfast buffets at the restaurant.

I find that Novotels are pretty standard wherever you go, and this one is no exception. It does the basics well - clean and comfortable bedrooms, with all the usual facilities on hand.
The problem starts if you want to step out of the hotel to, for example, eat in a local restaurant. Then you are confronted with a 25 minute walk through ugly, poorly maintained office blocks, as well as building sites and craters. At the end of your walk you have the choice between an average pizzeria and a very unwelcoming chinese 'traiteur'. So, in all honesty, any negativity in this review comes from the location rather than the quality of the hotel itself. I personally will do all in my power to never stay in Massy again.
