Pros: The rooms which are clean, tidy and comfortable are large by Paris standards.
The hotel operates a busy lounge bar offering a good value happy hour from about 5-7pm Mon-Fri. Overall the hotel staff are friendly and helpful.
A large shopping centre - including Sephora, DIM, GAP plus a big supermarket - is an easy five minute walk away. A further two minutes and you are at the Metro station.
Cons: The hotel is located in the business district, so very busy by day and very quiet by night even more so over the weekend. If travelling alone I would not recommend walking back to the hotel from the metro late at night ~ it's a bit off-putting.
There are very limited choices for dining out at night in/around La Defense.
The hotel charges for internet access which just should not happen these days - other hotels do it
too and it is a total rip off.
Checking out is a very slow process (reception is often understaffed) so ensure you allow enough time.
If you have business in/around La Defense - then this hotel is a good practical choice.
However when visiting Paris for pleasure I prefer to stay in different area closer to the heart of Paris where there are more things to do and see and a far greater choice of dining out options.
