“Too far from City..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2011

From Charles De Gaulle airport via Metro/RER it is extremely far to Nanterre with a number of changes needed to be made, once we arrived at the location we had to go through an underpass/subway which was extremely run-down and dirty and sometimes featured a number of intimidating homeless beggars, the area surrounding the Quality Inn was sparse with a few small convenience shops and a market on once a week. When we arrived the lobby and reception area was dark and dated, we were however allowed to check in early with a non-smoking room, the lift that took us to our room contained graffiti, this may be due to the large number of student school parties that attend the Quality Inn, our room was very small and extremely basic with a view of a car park. The room however was fairly clean and maintained by the rude and unapproachable maid service. Breakfast was pleasant with a small and friendly dining area offering continental food. Overall the average room and service was completely over shadowed by the fact that this hotel was completely out of the way from all general and main attractions of Paris, I would NOT stay here again, extremely inconevenient.

Room Tip: If you do not wish to travel a lot to main attractions DO NOT STAY HERE.

Advertised as La Defense but far away from it in terms of location. Arrived late, no room service, night porter was helpful and apologetic. Vending machine, but no local restaurants. Room standard was ok, no mini bar. Good breakfast. Overall disappointing for accomodation. . Will not use again for business, nor recommend

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon. We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights and 3 days.
The hotel is little far away from the city, but very near to the metro rail station of Nanterre.
The quality of the hotel and rooms is very good.The breakfast was lavish and fresh.
The staff was very helpful. We enjoyed staying in the hotel. I would recommend this if one wants to stay at peace and enjoy the holiday at leisure.

the hotel is worth its money but the only hurdle we faced was that of the distance.
it takes aoiut 20-30 mins by train to visit Eifel tower, louvre museum and other tourist places in Paris.
Else the staff is very freindly and the service is prompt.

My partner and I stayed at the Quality Inn Nanterre last weekend and had a very enjoyable experience. The hotel is located outside of Paris but has very good transport links into the city. The RER (metro) is just a short walk (2 mins) from the hotel and trains are regular. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Paris (Arc de Triomphe). The hotel is very clean and quiet and the beds very comfortable - a very good nights sleep. The staff were lovely and were always willing to help and advise. The breakfast was also very good. All in all a fab hotel - would definitely stay again! =)

Really glad we picked this hotel it is slightly outside paris but the ner railway station is only two minutes from the hotel and from there you are only 15 mins to the first main attraction in Paris the arc de triomphe !! The staff were very hepful gave us everything we needed to know on how to get about Paris!! We also went to eurodisney which is about 1 hour from the nantree de ville station we had to change at one of the paris station's but it is on the same line so it was only a matter of switching side's !! The rooms were very clean and basic but all that you need!! The breakfast's were excellent to!! We had wanted a hotel in the center of paris but after experiencing just how busy paris is basically whatever time you are in the center we were so lad we choose to be slightly outside !! Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would highly recomment the Quality Inn!!

All the reviews are pretty accurate and I accept you get what you pay for but none of the reviews mention the admittedly 2 minute walk to the RER station that means you need to run the gauntlet of the beggers and drunks.
We had my daughter and her friend with us and always attracted a great deal of unwelcome attention - on one occasion a drunk stumbled from the kerb and fell into the middle of the road right in front of us, we didn't stop to see if he was alright!
The RER/metro journeys were not much better - the only time I felt safe was when 3 large transit cops were in the carriage and that was the only time we saw any security in 4 days.
Go for somewhere nearer the city itself.
