Adagio Access Vanves Porte de Versailles
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Vanves
Reviewed July 27, 2008

"...it's not that bad," said my wife. Unfortunately, if you think of it as a hotel, it's also not so good. The mediocrity of the experience was underscored by the general unfriendliness and lack of helpfulness of several members of the staff. Upon arriving in the morning from an overnight flight, we were forced to wait to check-in until 2 pm, despite the availability of rooms.

The sparse breakfast lacked variety and availability of fresh fruit, though it would have been tolerable had the woman that staffed the breakfast room, a real ray of sunshine in the morning, not accused me of failing to sign in for breakfast 4 times. After having been here 3 weeks (and signing in over 20 times), I would have thought she would have caught on that I was, in fact, NOT stealing breakfast. At a place, however, with a clientele consisting largely of teenagers traveling with touring groups, this may in fact be a problem. These very tour groups seem to throw this attendant into a bit of a rage (OK, they had the same effect on me too), driving her to throw the dishes around so loudly they sound like they're breaking. This likely accounts for the lack of a complete set of dishes at any given meal. On a daily basis one was forced to hunt around for a spoon from one tray, a glass from another, and so on.

Then there was the "residential" plan. Don't do it. Basically, you only get cleaning once a week. This would be fine with me at a better hotel. However, if you use more than one roll of toilet paper a week, this presents a problem at this particularly stingy hotel. Though we asked for extra rolls four times, it was only delivered once (one roll). We eventually invested in a 6-roll pack for 2 euros at the supermarket down the street. One week, when the room was cleaned, they took all of our towels--but they didn't replace them! That was an interesting surprise when I got out of the shower.

Having a small kitchen was nice as it allowed us to prepare small meals for dinner. Unfortunately, you can't actually use the counter because it is made of a flimsy piece of stainless steel, and would flex and pop with an amazing ruckus anytime you would touch it. The small refrigerator would also have been nice, had the interior not been covered in mold!

I tried to give this place a 2/5, but after writing this review, I could not bring myself to do it. My recommendation--look elsewhere.

I booked on the internet about 2 days before my stay, the process was fast and efficient.
I had a single studio on the front (not too noisy) which was large with a very comfortable bed, and about 4 pillows if I needed them. Everything was clean. The wc/shower room was quite adequate with plenty of towels. I would certainly stay there again.
The metro is about 5 minutes walk away but if you need to change at Montparnasse there is quite a long walk to reach the other lines.
I had a nice meal at one of the Italian Restaurants close to the hotel.
The hotel breakfast was good value.

Found out about this residence hotel from Alliance Française, a great recommendation. It's only a few hundred meters outside the Périphérique (the boundary between Paris and Vanves). We have stayed here 3 times now, and plan to return again on our next trip. The rooms are huge compared to the many hotels where we've stayed in Paris.

It's relatively easy to travel to and from - you can easily take métro 13 to Malakoff/Plateau du Vanves and walk to the hotel in about 5 minutes. The metro is in zone 2. If you want to take a bus, there's the 58 or 89. You can be on the banks of the Seine in about 25 minutes.

If you have a choice ask to stay in one of the rooms in the back, they are much quieter than the ones facing the street - it's amazing how noisy the cars are at night on the rue Jean Bleuzen.

The hotel staff is friendly and speaks English. The rooms are clean and depending on what rate you want to play, you can have hotel service (cleaning every day) or residence service (cleaning once a week).

There is a petit déjeuner served for an additional charge, but we liked to go across the street to a charming boulangerie for a croissant and café. There are plenty of nice restaurants in Vanves, or in nearby (walkable) Malakoff.

There is a kitchenette with a refrigerator, a couple of hotplates, plates, glasses, cups, and silverware. There are no cleaning supplies, bring those with you or buy at the Intermarché market a couple of blocks away. The market is comparable to grocery stores in the states.

In short, we think this is a great find. If you're not afraid to venture away from the tourists, you'll like this hotel.
