The hotel belongs to the Novotel chain, which normally stands for superior business class hotels. This hotel seems to be an upgraded Ibis; not very new, plastics bathrooms; not very nicely carpeted floors; in the minibar there was an Evian water bottle that had been already opened; this problem seemed to be known already. I was not charged for the bottle, but the bottle was not replaced, either. Rooms are not very calm and quiet as the hotel is surrounded by highways on each side.
The restaurant also is not quite the French haute cuisine and it is too strongly air-conditioned.
Rooms are sufficiently big, however. There is also free WiFi in the rooms and it works fine. The service was friendly and the staff competent and helpful.
All in all the hotel is functional for a business stay - but regarding the price it is a bit disappointing.
