Citadines La Defense Paris
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I stayed with my family in a 1-bedroom apartment after going through Citadines website which turned out to be quite misleading than reality. Don't be fooled by the rooms shown on the website as the actual rooms are different. For example, I opted for a 1-bedroom apartment on the basis of the website which showed the apartment having a big balcony. In reality, I was allotted an apartment with one small window in each room. The rooms were very small and claustrophobic. The silver lining was that when I pointed this out the next day to the lady at the reception, she promptly shifted me into a 1-bedroom apartment with a balcony. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The location is good, just a two minute walk from Esplanade La Defense metro station. But the corridors have a foul smell and so do the apartments. I won't recommend it for the price they charge per night.

Due to business I was looking for a hotel close to La Defense. The location is ideal also if you want to go inside Paris, being close to the metro.
The rooms are extremely small, dirty and not worth the price.
May others find it good enough, but I will never take it again and would not recommend.

The location of Citadines is really good, it took me some time to find that (when you go by taxi, you must climb the stairs and walk quite far). Once you are accommodated you can use metro easily and everything is quite close. Regarding the hotel itself, the stuff was very friendly and helpful. When you need wifi you should ask the receptionist for a code which is for free but lasts only 1 day. I took apartment for 4 persons (they were no free smaller rooms) and to be honest that apartment would be ok for 2 persons, 4 would be there like a sardines in a can. The app was clean and normally equipped. The only think I missed was a trash (I couldn’t find that really). But in general I was happy there and spent very nice time in Paris.

We recently visited Paris over long break in Netherlands and stayed at Citadines. The location of the apartment hotel is excellent and very close to the Metro line 1. It is also part of cluster of hotels in same location making food etc. very convenient. The apartment rooms are decent size and clean and hygienic. Free wifi in the room works well and is very useful. If you are looking to go for shopping, closeby is the big shopping plaza which has all the stores that you can think of.

I have stayed here in this hotel in 2011 and 2012. The hotel is situated in the business district. It is very near to the metro station.It has a carefour stores , The mall, the super market etc on the walkable distance..
Since my office was on the next doors, it was very comfortable and also the big advantage is the metro station, you can travel to all the places from here.

We stayed here from 29th March to 2nd April and had a positive visit. We had an early flight so left our bags. We were offered an upgrade - two suite apartment and free breakfast included. Great start. We headed straight to the Eiffel Tower. The metro is 5 minutes walk away and - you can see Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel tower from metro bridge! About 5 stops then another train and we were there. About 20 minutes away. We got a taxi from airport but should have got train - really easy. Our rooms were really clean and warm. Evian in fridge; equipped little kitchen area; towels; bathrobe etc everything we could need. Breakfast was buffet style- and big selection. Eggs, ham, toast, rolls, pastries, cakes, yoghurts, fruit salad, fruit, cereal etc etc. Ours was free but normally costs 14 euros. You could eat a huge breakfast and get your moneys worth. Lot of people were obviously taking stuff out of the dining room for their lunch! Being in the business district is as you would expect. There were some restaurants and cafes around but not the kind of hotel where you pop out and have lots of cafes and bars on your door step. We tended to stay out late and head back to the hotel - not venture out again. We would recommend it as a good base to explore Paris.

Room Tip: We asked for a high room and got the top floor - great views!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Apart'hotel Citadines La Défense Paris is set in the heart of "Parisian Manhattan", Europe's largest purpose-built business district, on the banks of the Seine. Modern buildings, clad in glass and steel, stand as monuments to architectural challenges. The Esplanade, less than five minutes' walk away, offers you the chance to take an enjoyable stroll along its promenade and garden. With modern and elegant interiors, your Apart Hotel will provide you with all the comforts you could need during your stay. Whether travelling for business or leisure, you will find our reception team on hand 24/7 to make your stay in Paris as enjoyable as possible. Accessible via Metro Line 1, RER Line A and the T2 tramway, our serviced apartments hotel is well served by public transport. Take time to explore the out-of-the-ordinary La Défense district. After crossing the Esplanade, wander through the Parvis, the spectacular plaza that stretches out from the base of the Grande Arche, a marble and glass masterpiece that will thrill all those who love architecture. A Metro journey of just ten minutes takes you to the Place de l'Etoile, dominated by the splendour of the Arc de Triomphe, the triumphal arch that symbolises the Napoleonic era. From here, it is just steps to the world's most beautiful avenue, the famous Champs-Elysées. Seeking a little peace and quiet? Why not make for Ile de la Jatte, the Impressionists' island in the Seine, or the Bois de Boulogne public park? Shopaholics should head for Les Quatre Temps shopping mall, where you'll find 110,000 m² of stores. For movie lovers, a multiplex cinema is just a stone's throw from the serviced apartments hotel. Offering a choice of studios for one or two people, serviced apartments with separate living room and bedrooms for three or four people, or accommodation with a view of the Seine or across all of Paris, all our serviced apartments are fully equipped with kitchens with dishwashers, satellite TV, complementary Internet, air conditioning, and more.
