“Scary neighborhood”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

Nice and clean hotel. Nothing to complain about. Nice but small and icecold pool. But don't make the same mistake like us. We booked this hotel because my husband didnt want to drive the rental in Paris. And it had a pool for the kids. Walking to the subway was horrible. We felt we were going to be robbed every time. A not so nice 20 min walk to the station which was the last on the line...

The hotel itself was nice, but when we checked in the staff failed to tell us that they had a group booking and the hotel was full of dogs due to a show close by. When we raised our concerns the staff failed to help and more or less said tough there here for two nights. We was kept up until 1am due to the persistent dogs barking.. The rooms was nice and spacious,good food but expensive along with the drinks(6,50e for a pint of beer).

Also dont leave your bag unattended as two people on our coach trip had there bag stolen in the breakfast room, when we told the reception they refused to ring the police and we had to do this.. I wouldn't stay again though as it quite away from the center and nothing to do in the surrounding areas..

Pleasant hotel in even nicer surroundings. Good sized rooms, good parking but unfortunately let down on the erratic service in the bar & restaurant/breakfast area. They simply couldn't cope when there was some sort of a rush. Rather expensive prices considering it's not central Paris & never quite sure when they would close the bar area, so if you were too late back from your sight-seeing you might be out of luck for a night cap - so stock up in advance!
No hot water first thing in the morning on two out of our 3 day stay and you do need a car or at least good weather as the metro station is a 15 minute walk away. Fortunately we had excellent weather, enjoy walking and liked the metro & had purchased some duty free on the way in so were not too disappointed. Metro is so cheap, you could travel either 1 stop or 20 odd for the same price! London tube please note!

Room Tip: Metro v cheap cost c£1.50 per journey

The hotel is ok by overall. Pool is a lot smaller than the picture shows. I was looking for a cheap stay for a visit in Paris by car and it was actually down to those F1 hotels with free parking also at the far edges of paris and this one. I hesitated until a week or two before the trip and It was worth it as they dropped prices significantly.
I'd rate everything on average class with a small + for location around a lake which is nice.

Getting into Paris center takes almost a full hour including walk from hotel + metro and this is the biggest problem if youre looking to visit the center but you dont want to waste this ammount of time for travelling to it. Still you need to buy the metro ticket for a few days anyway so it acutally doesnt matter from the money side as I cant imagine visiting paris without that metro pass.

Normal prices are a bit high if you want to visit Paris and stay here but the promotions are very good.

The location at a lake is quite nice. The hotel itself is not new, but in very good condition. It is further very clean and the people are very friendly. Just a few points to make your stay more enjoyable:
The pool and air condition in the rooms are in operation only during a few months in the summer. If a pool is important for you better check with them before you book.
Same for the A/C, regardless if there are hot days in the spring time.
Don't book the breakfast for your entire stay in advance. Try it maybe once and decide then yourself. The restaurant doesn't offer a decent price/ quality relation from my perspective. You might be much better of if you go to one of the restaurants in the close by shopping center. If you keep this in mind you can enjoy an nice time in this hotel.
