Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Its a small hotel with nice and helping staff. The location of the hotel is in between residential area hence has quiet surrounding. The town orsay is very small, You can cover the town on foot. The hotel is located just 100 meters from RER which connects this town to Paris. The rooms are very small and the loo are even smaller. The breakfast if good, yummy croissants and a decently wide spread.
Stay here only if you have want to be away from the hussle bussle of the city or you are just crossing it and not need a place to spend a night.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

This was a memorable stay in December, just one night... but I will remember it for a long time.

Whilst a good price, this was unfortunately its only good feature.

I found the room very cold, the curtains poor, the room noisy, the bed was definitely a bed, but no great comfort there. The place looked tired.

Its location was great, a hard walk up the hill to reach a Palaiseau location.

The village of Orsay may have been good, but shut down just as we arrived for an evening meal. Nowhere to buy a beer!

I was too late to get a breakfast after a bad night sleep.

When seen on the web sounded to be the perfect deal ...
In fact does need a real and serious refreshing and as of today it is to avoid in hot summer days as without air conditioning, you are cooked like a hummer the whole night if not refreshing with the shower each 2-3 hours ...
Breakfast is very good and the service people very nice.

I spent there just one night (luckily). I found this hotel on the web and it seemed it was a good one, but I was wrong. Aloof treatment, poor room, even if quite large. For the price they demanded, I expected more.

Beautiful dining room and an excellent breakfast. Reception dark and dingy, receptionist friendly but not very "switched on" - initial "no you have no reservation", five minutes later "I found your reservation". Room dingy and uncared for - previous occupants wrappers left in bathroom. A good walk into town, town nice if hilly. We will not be going back, even for an overnight stay.

I chose this hotel in Orsay, near Paris, only for it's location: Closeby, there is a nearby bus station (near the station "Le Guichet") from where I could take a bus to the CEA Headquarters in Saclay and from where one also can travel by train to the airport of Orly.
From the outside, it doesn't look very promising, but inside everything looks nice and well maintained. The reception could have been friendlier.
My room was small and simple but the bathroom was apparently renovated not long ago. The surroundings are very quiet and also during the night everything was calm and quiet. It was possible to sleep with open window. The breakfast was suprisingly good for a 2 star hotel and the breakfast room was nicely decorated. So, one gets good value for the money (78.5 Euro, inclusive breakfast). Further, there was also free internet, which I always appreciate a lot.
Restaurants are difficult to find near the hotel. I found some near the nearby RER station ("Le Guichet").

Room Tip: On the highest floor (4), you have a nice view.

I stayed here for a week while working at the École Polytechnique nearby. The room was surprisingly spacious for a budget French hotel. The room was clean but the hotel felt rather dated. There was only a single electrical socket in the room and the desk was too small to work at. Internet was patchy with tight usage limitations (200 MB/day). Toiletries were rarely replaced. No tea- or coffee-making facilities were provided. The curtains were slightly too small to block out light from the windows.
I stayed here to avoid staying at the École's guesthouse again, and to be closer to the RER. In retrospect, it was not worth the long walk each day and the extra cost.
