This hotel is fine if you are doing business in the La Defense area, and is certainly a credit to the Mercure chain in terms of customer service and efficiency. The buffet breakfast, which was incuded in our weekend rate, was truly excellent and the shuttle bus service to the nearest metro/RER station ran throughout the day until late. However, as previous reviewers have commentated, it is not in the most salubrious part of Paris, and you would not want to walk around the area on your own after dark, and I would not advise any woman to do so. We were travelling by car and used the hotel car park, which turned out to be a fortified cage within a communal multi-storey cark park attached to the adjoining shopping mall. This is an experience to be avoided if at all possible! Although security within the hotel itself was fine (the room had a safe large enough to accommodate a laptop and my handbag), clearly security is a major issue in this area. The car park was very difficult to negotiate and would have been impossible with much luggage due to an elaborate access system , a tiny lift and many stairs. Had I arrived alone there at night, I would have found the experience extremely scary and would not want to repeat it anyway.
This isn't the Paris I know and love, so if you have the choice opt for somewhere more central even if it does not a bit more.
