“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

This hotel is excellently situated - not far from the RER station and the shops. We stayed here twice in June and July and were disappointed on both occasions by the rooms. We had stayed here last year when the hotel seemed in a better state of repair. This year the first room had a bathroom with a ceiling that had flaking paint and a cracked washbasin. The second time, there was no shower curtain ( we had to request one three times before it finally appeared) the wardrobe door was stuck, and the door on the microwave was damaged. The lifts often smelt and the carpet seemed generally grubby. Some of the guests were extremely noisy which made sleep difficult. The price is reasonable for stays of ten days but otherwise overpriced

I stayed here in Septemeber 2011. I found the hotel good in comparison to some of the reviews I read, I was expecting a bad hotel. The bathroom is very small however for me that's not a problem. I had a gorgeous view of the La Defense. I would definitely recommend it. However be prepared for a bit of a walk to the nearest metro station, the nearest metro is 10/15 minute walk.

Stayed week of My 2nd as working locally for a couple of days. To be honest, felt it was expensive at €110 for the night for what could only be described as a very basic room. Whilst it felt clean the room was quite small and look tired. As i went out with a work colleague for dinner and therefore arrived at about 10.00pm (had dropped bag off earlier), my stay was quite short and to be honest i was pleased as i feel it would have been quite depressing if I was there for a few days. On arriving back at the room, i could have easily have joined in with the conversation next door as it felt like they were sitting in my room chatting.

When writing reviews, I always try to strike a balance between cost & facilities and will not generally write a poor review if the hotel is cheap (you get what you pay for to be honest) but €110 is not what i would describe as cheap for just a basic room.

Room Tip: pay a little extra and stay some where else

The location it's nice, in Defense, but inside it's very dirty and poor......
The walls are dirty, the room is very small, and everything is very old stuff.....
it's not a good deal, I mean for a few money it's better to choose other hotel !!!!

Very good location. Very safe and beautiful quarter. La Defense metro station is just a 5 minute walk. Staff is nice and helpfull.
Dont expect too much from the room, basic need for a budget stay. There is a nice view to the "Grande Arche", if you get a room on a higher floor.
This is a perfect place for a budget trip to Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor. With a view to "Grande Arche".

This is a recent acquisition by the Accor hotel group and rebranded as Adagio Access. The building feels like is built in 1980s, facilities are basic: comes with free wi-fi, towels and kitchenette, provided pots, pans, cutlery, plates and cups. No hairdryer or ironing board.

Good cleanliness with daily room service. Shower head holder was wobbly but I managed to tweak it so I could have a decent shower (without holding the head all the time). Evening receptionist struggle to understand / speak English and show little competence so wasn't too helpful when I needed a spare pillow (they were too soft). But day staff were friendly and helpful.

Location is great, loved the convenience to the mall / and metro / train station which is about 10mins walk away. Some reasonably priced restaurants nearby where most office employees nearby could dine / drink.

Overall I am not overly disappointed nor impressed but it satisfied basic need for a budget stay.
