I arrived quite late on the Sunday evening (10ish) and the door was locked - card holders only. After a couple of minutes, someone eventually spotted me and kindly let me in. Any food available? That'll be a no then.
Room was clean. Decor was clean and quite new. Lifts worked...all good and they had one of those lovely coffee machines in the room. Comfy bed. Bathroom nice, though why the toilet was in a separate room, goodness only knows. Usual toiletries provided and replenished daily.
So..breakfast. Too be honest, I won't pay those prices and I expect a basic breakfast to be included. You an opt for the "juice, coffee and croissant" option but its still not cheap at 8E. Me, I went across the road to this wonderful little patisserie where each item around 1E. Buy a coffee from the metro and you're sorted.
Speaking of the metro, this place is right on top of the station. You can roll out of bed and be on the metro in less than 10m. Mind you....if you are a light sleeper.... Those beds are soooo comfy though, you should sleep well.
Having stayed recently in La Defense itself and now in Nanterre, if you're working late, Nanterre could be a little intimidating after 11pm.
Also, the tickets for paris don't apply to Nanterre. And watch your pockets on the metro.
Anyway, would I stay here again....yes, I would as you get what you pay for in this world I find. It's very reasonable and clean. For business, yes. Romantic weekend away or with kids, nah.
