.... that is not a problem for those willing and able to use the Metro. My wife and I recently travelled with an organised group for a weekend break in Paris (by Eurostar, three night stay and with a coach to take us around Paris/Verseilles/Montmartre), all for £289!) and we have to say that we were a little apprehensive about the location of this hotel when we looked at a map. Fear not, for the Espanade de La Defense Metro Ligne 1 station is just a five minute or so walk from the hotel. From there, it takes around 20 minutes to reach Palais Royal/Musee de Louvre station in central Paris and five minutes more to Chatelet (for Notre Dame/Latin Quarter area). Simples! En route, the Metro stops at Charles de Gaulle Etoile which is perhaps better known to visitors as the Arc de Triomph and is handy for the restaurants/cafes in Ave des Champs Elysees. The incredibly busy traffic island that the Arc sits on is accessible by subways from pavements/sidewalks but not direct from the Metro.

As for the hotel itself, it was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was more Travel Lodge/Premier Inn than a 4*, but hey you can't have it all and who stays in there for long anyway? Despite facing a busy dual-carriageway (and able to see the Seine) the double-glazing was so good that we didn't hear a thing. The buffet style breakfast was good with a wide selection and thanks to the lovely weather we able to eat al-fresco. We are unable to comment on other hotel meals as we opted to go into central Paris for dinner. (had the best steak ever at the reasonably priced Brasserie Les Deux, Bd du Paris).

The La Defense area is the Paris equivalent of London's Docklands with many very modern - and some architecturally very interesting - high rise office blocks (none being allowed in central Paris), the hotel being on the south-east fringe of this, on the Paris city side so the tower blocks don't impede seeing the city from a distance. Indeed, the Eiffel Tower can be seen at night from outside the hotel.

One tip; if you fancy a walk but not in the office block area then just go halfway across Pont de Neuilly, next to the hotel, where you will find some steps which lead down to an island in the Seine. Here you will find a tranquil (traffic noise being barely audible as the road runs around 20 feet above), wooded area to walk around or sit and contemplate as we did before leaving the area a little later for the Gare du Nord and St Pancras International. The island is a popular place for office workers to relax and eat their lunch. There is a fenced off area behind which were bee hives in a natural setting but there was no need to worry as we didn't see a single bee! Pictures are attached.

So, to summarise, the IBIS at La Defense may not be centrally located but that doesn't really matter as it is ideal as a base away from the mayhem that can be central Paris.

Room Tip: We were in Room 812 which has an obstructed view of the the Seine.

This business hotel has two things going for it. First, in the right room you get excellent views of the River. Better on the upper floors 7-11. Secondly, the modest restaurant is reasonably priced with quite good food. I recommend the Salmon Tatare.
The rooms though are very small, cramped and quite spartan. However, the bed is comfortable enough. The pillows were a little soft for me. The shower room is modest and equally spartan. Some rooms have been updated while others appear a little worn (especially rooms for smokers).
The location is probably ideal for La Defense. It is very close to the M1 Metro line which gets you to most places in the city, including Gare De Lyon without having to change and within 15-20 minutes.
In all a reasonably priced no frills business hotel in a relatively strategic location in La Defense within striking distance of Paris city centre. Take the metro not the taxi, unless you are going to Charles De Gaulle Airport or the outskirts.

Room Tip: Higher floors with views of the River. Preferably not overlooking the tram and expressway.

I stayed in this hotel, and it had all I needed. It's located a few metro stations away from the most important attractions of Paris, but it is almost in front of the metro station. The rooms are small but for one person or two are enough, the breakfast was also enough for the price. In general this hotel is good for business or for travelers that want to save money in the hotel, but still having a good option. I really enjoyed the location of the hotel in La Defense area, you can find some restaurants within 20 minutes walk or one metro station away. A good option in Paris.

So this hotel was a nice surprise. The staff was very friendly and besides it's a little out of the city centre of Paris it would only take 20 minutes by metro to get there. With that 1,70Euro metro line you could go anywhere, just find the RATP free app for android and Apple store.
We actually enjoyed it very much since we got to see the beautiful "La defense arche". It's a very calm residential and business centre with a lot of new buildings and a awesome shopping mall. Overall this is a great hotel.
