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.
