I had rather low expectations, particularly when viewing the last few reviews.
I found this hotel to be pleasant, serviceable, clean.
Nicer than expected - about baseline Sheraton nice. Good bed, decent shower.
Even a decent gym, with a few cardio options and a multi-station pulley machine for anaerobic. Excellent high-speed WiFi, which is often lacking in mid-range hotels in France.
Restaurant is surprisingly good/versatile, and I had 2 meals there, and enjoyed them.
For the money, pushed this from '3' to '4' - was literally less than half the cost of several comparable hotels. 115 euro for a double bed plus a pull out sofa couch - a rate I did not think possible in Europe in a majour metro area.
While I'd still prefer the Sofitel here (which is GORGEOUS), when it runs 3x the cost of this place, I'll take this Novotel gladly.
