“Average Boutique Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

We spent 3 nights there and the rooms are small. The employees were very helpful but the interior of the hotel and rooms was outdated. The main plus was the 2 min. walk to the Courbevoi station and 15 min walk to La Defense station.

I spent 2 nights in this 3* hotel, in room 407 (back side) which was small but clean, good for a quiet sleep and a good shower...
Of course you can hear the elevator (not a disturbing sound) and of course you hear the floor squeeking a little, but that is normal for a small hotel of this age, it didn't really bother me. The frequency of the foreign sounds is very low.

The breakfast was OK, the variety of the food was limited and the bread not so fresh, but the croissants were OK and so was the thee/coffee. You are staying at a 3* hotel, remember !?
The breakfast room is charming, but soon overcrowded, when all guests come down for breakfast at the same time...

The personnel is quite friendly and they do their best, nothing to complaint for !
The access to Paris from here is a positive thing: either by train or by car to the nearest metro station ( La Défense ), with lots of paying parking facilities.
Visiting the La Défense area is a thrill !! Few people know about this "State of the Art" part of Paris, with an impressive Esplanade !

For me, this hotel constitutes a good alternative for spending a weekend in Paris, at a reasonable cost , in a fairly quiet atmosphere.

We did not deliberately book this hotel but instead thought we were booking the more central hotel in Paris of the same name. A good lesson learnt about booking hotels in a hurry!!

We chose to stay here anyway, and it was ok, definitely could have been worse. It's 2 mins walk from a train station that is only 12 minutes to Gare D'Est so it was more convenient than we anticipated. You can also catch the metro to and from La Defense.

The room was tired, clean but the fridge had a horrific smell. Bathroom was small but not abnormally so for Europe and was a very awkward layout. The entire decor was a bit much, very dark, lots of stripes, floral and fabric on the wall...

Breakfast was ok with the usual continental fare. Wifi was good and the service from the staff was generally good and answered any questions we had.

We wouldn't stay here again due to the location but generally it was ok.

Hotel manager very helpful and welcoming , 3 stars no way

Entered room turned on light switch it did not work, door closed and then left groping around

finally found bathroom light and there was relief
mentioned to hotel staff but nothing happened during my one day sojourn

The expresso machine in the breakfast room was a nice plus

Room Tip: Do not stay in room 101 next to large very noisy airconditionner

Good choice for a good price, though not in Paris Center. It's a 10 minute walk from metro/RER station La Defense. Nice and safe neighbourhood. The beds are very confortable and the bathroom has been renovated. Some bathrooms have a bath, others only have a shower. The room decor is a bit retro, but the room was very clean. The breakfast is expensive, so we decided to go to the bakery across the street. The hotel has free wifi, a flat TV and the staff is nice. There are many grocery stores and restaurants nearby. There is also a big shopping center at La Defense. I would go back for the price, but I would prefer a hotel in Paris if I can find one for the same price. The hotel was not noisy. There is a hotel with the same name in Paris 9e. This one is in Courbevoie.

George sand is a quaint little french hotel that is tucked away in a residential neighborhood of Paris.Its about 10 minutes walk from La Defense station where there is a plethora of trains to pretty much any where you want to go in Paris. We got a great internet deal of 3 nights for 60 euros a night!
The room itself is a little on the smaller side so if you have a lot of luggage might be a little hard to walk around the room. The room is sufficient to sleep in after a long day of sight seeing paris.The front desk is helpful.The breakfast is a good spread but 12 euros per person is a little expensive.I wish the front desk had mentioned that it was not free when they mentioned the morning breakfast.We also had free wifi which is always a good thing. Overall loved it and we will definitely be back if and when we go back to Paris

We travelled to Paris to celebrate my 4oth birthday. We were on a budget - so had to shop around for a decent hotel. Given our budget - there would always be a compromise. The hotel itself was lovely - a traditional French building with period features. The rooms were furnished with antique beds and period wallpaper. The down side being that the rooms were very small - but then it didn't matter for the amount of time spent there.
The location was a fair way from the centre of Paris. However, is was a 10 minute walk to the metro station of the Grand Arch at La Defense. (You could be lazy and catch the RER over-land train - 2 mins from the hotel - and then change to the metro). It was roughly 6 stops to the L'Arc de Triomphe and a few more down to the Louvre - all on the yellow line - so very easy to navigate.
Breakfast at the hotel was substantial. Although there was a good patisserie across the road as well as a few cafes if you wanted to get breakfast a bit cheaper.
The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and also allowed us to stow our luggage after we had checked out (11am) The only downside perhaps is that there are no tea/coffee facilities in the room (and a bit steep at 4.5 Euros downstairs).
The bathroom was very small - but well equipped (and surprisingly modern compared to the rest of the deco)
All in all - I would definately recommend the Hotel George Sand.
