We came as a couple for 3 nights to the hotel, and the stay began badly: we arrived at 9pm and were told there was no double-bed room left, unless it was a smoking room. However, the staff, Patricia, was helpful and nice and found a non-smoking room, with 2 single beds and we changed to a double room on the next night.
I was quite impressed by how helpful this person was: she was very nice with other customers as well, and could help you for any detail regarding your stay or the surroundings of the hotel.
The rooms have been refurbished and are now in a nice pale green tone, less cheap-looking than Etap Hotel blue. They were pristine clean, no sign of damage, everything working prefectly. I particularly enjoyed the shining shower: it lights up with different colours, which will delight children and adults!
Despite the proximity of a very busy road, the rooms are pretty quiet. The sound isolation to the other rooms is not too bad for a budget hotel.
The only drawback of this hotel is its location: you need to walk 15min from the metro. The way is all straight, but finding the right way is almost impossible from the metro, as La Defense is a mess of bridges and buildings. The few boards indicating "Ibis" directions refer in fact to another hotel...
Still, a very nice hotel, for a small price (I paid about 40€ per night). I will definitely stay there again when I come to Paris.
