“Ideal for family with toddler.”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

We were slightly concerned about this place because of some of the negative reviews but we needn't have been. Overall, it was brilliant.

Our party included my wife, my 16 month old daughter and myself.

We chose a double room with single sofa bed, and asked for a cot (lit d'enfant avec cotes.) which they provided free of charge. We arranged this by email and phone prior to our arrival, and found the staff very helpful at arranging this.

The hotel was quite hard to find because of the one way systems around La Defense. But it was only about 15 mins of drivinign around, so no dramas.

On arrival the receptionist, Simon, was incredibly friendly and helpful. He offered a twin room to us because it was apparently more spacious but we wanted the double and as we werent planning to use the single sofa bed this seemed the best option. And so it turned out to be.

We paid 30 euros for parking from 7pm Friday night until 7pm Sunday night. So we picked the car up after check out - no problem. You just drive the car out of the car park and the automatic sensors open the door so there is no need for a security pass on the way out.

The room was easily big enough for the 3 of us, and the balcony provided a great place to eat dinner and breakfast. We had read some unhappy reviews about the restaurant so we decided to save our money and buy breakfast from the boulangerie instead. I recommend doing this because its much cheaper and less hassle, and of course you cant beat freshly cooked french bread and croissants. The boulangerie is only a 5 minute walk across Parc du Millenaire. If you want jam and butter, there is a corner shop with loads of stock directly opposite the hotel.

The kitchenette had a fridge, dishwasher, a microwave (ideal for baby bottles) and two hobs. All the utensils you could need (inclining a bottle opener, frying pan, colander and saucepan) and a few washing tablets for the dishwasher. There was no washing detergent or scrubbing brush for the sink though. The bedroom itself had nice modern furniture with a flat screen TV and there is also free wifi.Cant complain!

Its a 10 minute walk to the Metro at La Defense, Grande Arche, and from there it is 5 stops (10 mins) to the arc du triomphe, and about another 10 mins to Notre Damme. So a very good location.

Only small downsides (which are hardly worth mentioning) were the surfaces on the balcony could have been a bit cleaner (quite dusty) and the fold down double bed had a slight incline on it so that the pillow end was slightly lower than the feet end.

We placed the cot in the kitchenette which seemed to provide no problems for our daughter to sleep, and also left enough room for us to get through to the toilet.

I would definitely go back to Residhome and I would recommend this place to anyone without hesitation. Hope this is useful.

Assuming expectations in general for hotel can be suitably lowered when one comes to Paris, this apartment hotel actually is not a bad choice. It has a good location, about 10 minutes walk to La Defense Metro and CNIT, and it is in a good and safe neighborhood. A supermarket is just one building away, and other facilities are nearby. The hotel parking facility is also helpful as one can bring the car in and out with a daily fixed price. However on the minus side, the hotel is not maintain very well. Some windows in the room don't close properly, and the self-help laundry facilities break down often. Most times, at least one of the two elevators didn't work, making it difficult to go up and down from lobby to hotel rooms. For long staying guests, the room cleaning schedule is also puzzling, and sometimes they don't come to clean the room for a straight 4 or 5 days.

I had such a wonderful time staying here. It was me and my partner and we loved it. It was so close to the train station and just across the road from a local shop and even starbucks! Such a nice area and the staff here are so helpful. I would certainly go back here to stay. I miss it already. Me and my partner are in our early 20s and would highly recommend it to any young couples simply because of the easy location and how romantic it feels! I really enjoyed my Parisian experience thanks to Residhome Parc du Millenaire, BUT, one word of advice.. do not catch a taxi here, get on the train (RER A) to Chatelet les Halles and then onto the red line, its much cheaper and 5 mins away from the hotel. We ended up spending 60 euros! Hope this has been helpful!

Our group arrived at the hotel 3 hours later than expected only to find our rooms weren't ready. When we finally got to our room our keycard wouldn't work. My husband went to reception whilst I waited with our luggage in the corridor. The 2nd card didn't work, neither did the 3rd. A nice man who I presume to be one of the managers let me into the room so I didn't have to sit on the floor whilst my husband was going back and forth. We phoned reception to get someone sent up to look at the door swiper but no one came. We went out to dinner and were told it would be fixed by the time we came back - it wasn't. When we returned from dinner we were let into our room by a staff member with a master key and when I asked what would we do if we needed to go out again the employee replied "ask us at reception to let you in again". Very inconvenient and unacceptable.

Staff were friendly and apologetic the whole time but did absolutely nothing to get it fixed.
The next morning we fiddled around with the privacy knob ourselves and it seemed to fix the problem. In total we spoke to at least 4 different people at reception and all they did was issue yet another card (5 in total) even though we stressed the problem must be to do with the door swiper not the cards. They seemed to think we weren't operating the card properly and also didn't seem to believe us when we said our wi-fi card was missing from our desk.

The room was nice and it was very clean but the fold up bed takes up too much space and the corner of the bed is nasty on shins if you aren't careful (this was the same for the other rooms we saw). Some of our kitchen appliances weren't working. We probably should have reported this but being exhausted from our travels and given the hassle we had with something as simple as getting our door fixed - we didn't bother. Apologies to whomever is unlucky enough to get allocated this room in future.

The restaurant was too small for the amount of people staying in the hotel - it was overcrowded and you would lose your seat if you both got up at once. There wasn't a lot of food choices and there didn't seem to be enough to cater to the amount of guests. However the female Maitre'd on the door was very welcoming and friendly.

The apartments are next to the La Defense area of Paris, but travelling into the city to see the sights was very easy. The RER/metro station is only about 10mins walk or there's a bus just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel that goes straight down the Champs Elysees to the Arch de Triomphe terminating at the Musee D'Orsay. Also easy to get to Air France coach stop from Place de L'Etoile for travel to Charles de Gaulle airport.

Also close by are a couple of shopping centres with restaurants, a monoprix supermarket, banks and Starbucks.

We had a studio which was small but very clean with a double pull down bed, sofabed and kitchenette. As others have said, the studios are a bit small for more than 2 people. It wasn't a problem for us as we were out and about so much, but with the bed down and sofa pulled out there really wasn't much space for 3 of us to move around. We also had problems with the A/C not working at first, which were eventually sorted out.

Breakfast was adequate (except the sausages!), nothing to get excited about.

All in all, a good location away from the noise of the city, but close enough to enjoy the sights, and at a really reasonable price for Paris. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again, but would opt for a two bedroom apartment next time.

We booked this as a triple, 3 adults. We were given a “studio” – don’t be fooled to think it is an apartment; it’s the French for a room with a small kitchen, I was told. Only that there was NO kitchen, i.e. no separate room! In fact the “kitchen” was incorporated in the small lobby leading to the room. Truth is it had pretty much everything: coffee machine, proper fridge, electric cooker, electric water kettle, all sorts of pots and crockery.
There was a large double bed and a camp bed which folded up. When the camp bed was down, there was literally hardly any room at all left to walk around in. We tried to move some furniture onto the balcony just to to give us some decent space. We couldn’t! We resorted to moving the suitcases onto the balcony as there was no space to store them. The photos are very deceptive - they look as if there is plenty of space, but there is not for a triple, not even for 2 tall people, I should say.
The location needs to be understood - there are no bars nearby other than a small bistro and a few restaurants in the La Defense area, which is the business district of Paris. It is therefore very convenient if you have business with the corporations in the La Defense area. Transport to Paris is easy with Metro (line 1) and fast with RER, although there are a good 10-minutes walk from the hotel to the metro/ RER station located in the CNIT building. Getting to this hotel is also not easy when arriving for the first time, signalling is good, but better to arrive during the day.
Breakfast was not poor, but limited in variety and pretty much the same everyday, which was terrible. Wireless doesn’t work properly; it took the stuff some time to provide me with a connecting cable. Bathroom was of decent size and clean. Staff were polite and fluent in English.
