“don't go there”
Reviewed June 19, 2007

Stayed in this hotel for the weekend. It was very hard to find a taxi in the night to bring us back to the hotel as well as pick us up from hotel. Staff although not unfriendly makes no effort at all. Rooms are very small and more then simple. Rooms were clean but floor in dining area always dirty. Hotel really is on the outskirts of the city.

This Ibis is a standard hotel with the usual facilities. The rooms are very clean with standard shower over bath and soap dispenser. There is a TV and small open wardrobe/shelves. The beds are comfortable and extra blanket/pillows provided. There is a fairly large breakfast room/bar/evening restaurant with doors opening out onto a patio with tables for outside dining. A large water sculpture?fountain? stands outside this, although it was not working while I was there it provided a better outlook than the surrounding offices. People were paddling on the 2 scorching hot days I stayed and no one seemed to mind this, although it didn't look like this was its purpose! In the distance from my room you could see the high buildings of La Defence and the New Arche.
This is a tourist/business hotel although far better suited if you have business in nearby La Defense than to a tourist who wants an easy journey to Paris centre to see the sights. The RER/metro is not near, so you need to get a cab or walk a good way to even start your journey to centre of Paris- the nearest landmarks are La Defense and the New Arche at 1.70 kms. away and the Arc de Triomphe is 6 - 7 kms. away.
The continental breakfast was adequate with fresh bread, cheese, ham, jams, fruit salad, yogurt, croissants and danish pastries. We did not have evening meal and walked a good way to find an open restaurant as most places seemed to close 6ish as this is a buisiness area.
To sum up Ibis Nanterre is a perfectly acceptable hotel but you could have an identical room and facilities at the Ibis La Defence (Pont de Neuilly) and be on the banks of the Seine with the metro right outside the door and bars/restaurants within walking distance just over the bridge towards the Champs-Elysees and feel nearer the real Paris.
