“Hotel for grouping tour and family”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I was stay in Novotel Saclay for 3 night, hotel was far from public transportation esp. Train. If you no have car, only way is taxi from train station or paris. The hotel have swiming pool, fitness and another that chain hotel should had. The room was very clean and it was cleaned every day. In the room have 2 big bed and small bathroom which seperate from toilet. The hotel have very small lift that can took only 3- 4 person so if have many lugglages it will take more time. The staff is good. Breakfast is average.
The only disadvantage is far from public transportation, you must have car to go this hotel.

We opted for the dinner menu (choice of two main dishes, one fish, one meat), only to be told that the chicken was unavailable and could only be replaced by the fish. Waiter very sullen.
The room was freezing when we arrived and when we complained, the receptionist stated that all rooms had been at 24° all week. Perhaps the fact that it was a holiday and that there were no business people staying had something to do with this. We were given a very small heater to warm the room.
When we complained, we got apologies and vague promises about the future. This hotel does not seem to recognise its contractual obligations to its clients.

Fine for business trip, bar and acceptable restaurant, but quite basic (especially the rooms). Finding taxi's in the area can be difficult and hotel didn't seem keen to help. I would recommend researching local taxi companies and booking as far ahead as you can. We travelled on the RER to Saclay and then got a taxi to hotel. In hindsight, I'd use a taxi from Paris as the train takes 40 mins.

We've stayed here several times as it's ideal for a few days relaxing in the lovely garden/swimming pool/sports facilities yet it's only 15 minutes from central Paris. It was a bit pricey being high season this time but lovely facilities, adjoining an old courtyrad and small chateau. The swimming pool could be a little warmer though!

This is not Paris, but it's not far from a suburban railway station with regular trains into the city. The service was friendly and the rooms clean and adequately sized. Good all-you-can-eat breakfast with plenty of choice.
