Fresh from the awful Mercure La Defense Parc, anything would have been better than that...and this was. The rooms were brighter...thank god. The bathroom was much better and the shower was good.
I got bitten (9 times in total - not that I'm counting!) by mosquitos (I think!) which is not the fault of the hotel but does call in to question the air con. It worked insofar as air came out...but it was not cool air so I wonder if my mozzie mates enjoyed the warm environment.
Reception staff generally helpful apart from one extremely unhelpful and rude man (who I asked for help with topping up a PAYG phone having lost my iphone in a taxi (his colleague tried harder - thank you!)) .....if you read this...you know who you are!
Wouldn't hurry back but it was a better experience generally than Mercure La Defense Parc.
