There are two Mercure hotels in the quiet Place Rene Clair: this one- the Residence Mercure Le Scenario- and the main Mercure where you check in and can take breakfast etc.
The room was described as an "apartment", though it was more like a regular hotel room with a small kitchenette containing hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, crockery and cutlery. Being an apartment, I was slightly in doubt whether the room would be serviced each day, but it was.
The room was very good, fully meeting my main requirements of being clean and modern. It contained a small table, two chairs, flat-screen TV, electronic safe, and a very comfortable double-bed. The bathroom was very clean and the shower was good. The hotel also offers free Internet wifi.
The hotel is decently located, about eight minutes walk from Porte St Cloud Metro, and about twelve minutes from Issy Val de Seine Tram and RER station just across the river. Beware when using the RER though: although it's in zone 2, the same as the Metro station, you have to pay extra if using a carnet or Zone 1-2 Mobilis ticket- I don't quite get this aspect of the transport pricing system.
Although it may appear to be quite far from the central area, it's actually pretty convenient for the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and the Palais de Versailles.
The area itself is good: it felt safe, and there was a reasonable selection of bars, restaurants, bakeries and other independent food retailers, plus two small supermarkets, one being Lidl.
Would I stay again? Yes I would...
