I got 2 nights here on a Dutch holiday auction site for only €80 so my view is based on the fact I paid very little. I think it's normally around €150 which I personally don't think is too bad a price, compared to other places.
The hotel is very clean and modern, it is in a very quiet location with good transport connections and everything you need for a short stay nearby. There is a supermarket outside the hotel to the left, a cash machine and a couple of restaurants. We drove here by car with the use of sat-nav and had no problems navigating the notorious Paris roads, so I don't think even nervous drivers would have a problem getting here by car. However there are a limited number of private parking spaces under the hotel for €10 a night, which you must reserve in advance. Before parking your car here you need to check-in, stopping outside the hotel is not ideal but is possible for a short time. The breakfast in the hotel has very limited choice but it's a meal included in the price. There is also a shortage of tables at breakfast time. The rooms are small and basic but they have good cooking facilities (which we never used) microwave, fridge etc. The bed was a sofa bed which was surprisingly comfortable. All the TV channels are in french, no cnn or bbc world.
To get to the center of Paris.....
The bus stop is outside the hotel on the main road. You take bus 178 to the main station La Defense, this costs €3.80 for 2 adults oneway. Buses come ever 15-20 minutes. Depending on how late you return back to La Defense you need to take bus 178 or 278 back to the hotel. The signs for the buses are very clear and easy to use.
From La Defense you can get to anywhere in Paris. While you are here don't forget to check out the tourist attractions, La Grande Arch and Le pouce” (the thumb).
We bought a Paris Visite (travel pass) at the ticket office in La Defense for 2 days for 2 adults €15.20 each. The Paris Visite enables you to use the whole of the transport system in the center of paris zones 1-3. This includes the Metro, buses and Trains but does not include the bus back from La Defense to the hotel because this is outside these zones. The Paris Visite is perfect for getting around Paris and saves alot of time.
