This is not a 4 star hotel by any stretch of the imagination.
Photographs on its website must have been taken using wide angle lenses to make small rooms look bigger.
The only hotel in the world I ever stayed in that left bed sheets and towels unchanged in 4 days and did not provide replacement toilet tissue.
To enter the underground car park reception provided a clicker to open the outer gate and inner door. The slope is steep with shifts in gradient. Consequently I grounded my car despite driving slowly and carefully. Entry to reception from the car park is through a lit lobby leading to a dark lift lobby which is only lit on locating and pressing the light switch. 2 self closing doors between the car park and the lift made access to the lift with suitcases difficult.
The apartment for 3 persons had a small but well equipped kitchen, a sofa bed and 2 single beds shoved together to create a double. Perhaps the idiosyncratic decoration and lighting was once fashionable. Now it just looks tired and grubby with marks all over the walls and stained carpet. The sofa bed was uncomfortable and pillows on all beds were lumpy and worn out. It is impossible to lie on one of the single beds to watch tv but, if you are not fluent in French, you probably would not bother. Channel 9 is reckoned to be the BBC but someone retuned the tv to a French music video channel. The dining table is impossible to use by any more than 2 persons. Lights are oddly positioned and broken power sockets hang out of the walls. Heating in the bedroom, set at the minimum on the thermostat, was stifling. If a window was opened traffic noise was intrusive. The shower produced a dribble which because the screen is so short still managed to spray the bathroom floor.
It isn't well located. There are restaurants within 100 metres but they are relatively expensive. It is at least 500 metres, maybe more, to the Metro/RER station below la Grande Arche at la Defense. That station is within the central Metro district so reaching central Paris is easy and cheap from there but time consuming. A small Monoprix in the station concourse provides inexpensive food, drinks and snacks. The huge shopping centre at la Defense also offered cheap dining and a great variety of shops.
I didn't choose to stay at the Adagio Kleber but I was bounced from an overbooked hotel in an Accor chain. The receptionist at that hotel reckoned the Adagio was superior. It makes me question how bad the overbooked hotel may be. The Adagio Kleber was a great disappointment.
