Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I don't have much to compare this room to as far as accommodations in Paris go but this hotel was pretty nice. I've heard hotel rooms in Paris are small but this room was ok in size. In fact, I've stayed in smaller rooms in New York. It's a very modern hotel in the business district of La Defense. It's pretty far from the center of Paris but very conveniently by a Metro station that takes you right into the center. The hotel is very modern and minimalistic but clean. No big complaints.

Stayed: May 2014

The Novotel is situated at the bottom of La Defense, it is a 2 minute walk from the yellow metro line that takes you into the centre of Paris. From here it is easy to get to everywhere in Paris and further afield such as Versaille and Disney. Location wise it was perfect for us, we had great views over looking the Siene and Paris. The building isn't much to look at from the outside but inside it was clean and tidy.

Room Tip: Request a high floor and a river view for a view of the Eiffel Tower and Paris.

This hotel is close located to the business area La Defence. It is mostly a pur business hotel. you can see this immediatly when you enter the lobby. The personnel is not friendly more cold and are not available to give you information.
They doesn t see the importance of the client.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better

Well located for La Defense particularly the lower section, eg Michelet. It's served by the Esplanade La Defense metro and is quite a walk from the top end of la Defense by Grande Arche. Modern interiors, good views over the Seine and Paris with view of Eiffel Tower. Samey menu, staying all week as I did you'll want to eat out, but good quality food in the bar and restaurant. Good selection at breakfast. Reliable and fast wifi internet is free you just give an email address every 24h and it's connected simply and easily. Will be back again in the autumn.

Located on the banks of the river and next door to Esplanade de la Defense metro station.

Friendly staff and rooms are large if a little basic, but then again when in Paris you're only sleeping there so there's not much time spen in the room itself.

At full price would not be worth the money but with a company discount it fell into the reasonable category for the week in question.

I stayed overnight at Novotel as I was attending a meeting at La Defence. The hotel is in a great location, just 5 stops on the metro to Arc du Triomphe. If you walk up the Central Avenue of La Defence and turn back to see the city the view is amazing. I found it easy to find taking the train from Charles du Gaulle, as previous people have remarked, when you need to change trains it is quite a walk and there are lots of steps to carry your suitcase up and down, so if you do have a lot of luggage or small children bear this in mind. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms nice and functional. Breakfast is basic but really fine, if you want better pastries you are in the right city!! I would stay here again and recommend to those who have meetings at La Defence or who want to visit Paris for a few days.
