Qualys-Hotel Nanterre La Defense
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Nanterre
Reviewed 15 October 2012

A couple of minutes (through the foot-tunnel underpass) from Nanterrre Ville Station (nowhere near La Defense). RER Train into Paris every 10 mins, takes about 12 mins into Etoile (Arc de Triomphe), 25 mins to Gare du Nord. Fare E2.50 one way. Room reasonable and clean, but no kettle etc - so take your own. Restaurant was closed all weekend, apart from breakfast, which was very average. Didnt try the bar. Reasonably quiet (on the 6th floor at the back) except for kids hanging out in the car park in the evenings. Good burger/kebab shop by the station, and wine/provisions shop on the way. Market in front of the hotel on a Saturday. Staff polite, helpful. Area very mixed, no personal safety issues, but only came back from station in the evening - didnt go exploring. Reasonable value (except WiFi access - expensive). Would use again.

We booked a trip through a holiday company and this hotel stay was part of the deal. We stayed for three nights over a weekend. The room was nice, clean and modern and the bathroom was too! The breakfasts were very basic, but edible and plenty of it. The only gripe with the hotel was the restaurant....it was closed Fri, Sat and Sun eve. We asked the receptionist why this was and apparently, because the hotel is in a business area, there is no call for the restaurant to be open at weekends. It is mainly used by business people during the week. There is not much around the hotel, just a few small shops, a butcher's shop, a sort of a supermarket and a pizza takeaway. Was told there is a Chinese restaurant nearby, but we didn't see that. The hotel is fine to use as a base and I would go back there for that purpose.

Very comfortable hotel. Only 2 RER stops away from La Defense and RER station is very close. (2 mts by walk). Good breakfast spread even though the same everyday. Staff at reception are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are well maintained. Hotel is more modern than shown in it's website. I stayed here for 15 days and did not find any problem with the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a bigger room. Some are small.

Really enjoyed our trip here, great room and breakfast. About a 20 minute metro ride into the centre but we really enjoyed the commute! About a 5 minute walk through the fantastic Parisian neighbourhood to the metro station. Clean room and friendly staff! Would come again! :)

I have myself to blame for choosing this terrible hotel. I got it on the cheap on some website. It was so run down and shabby which I could have dealt with if it had been clean. Not even close to La Defense (2 metro stops I think.) I landed at CDG airport at 6 am. Got to the hotel at 9 am. They refused to let me check in until 2. So, I guess next time I'll cough up the extra night's cost. But not at this hotel - ever again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for early check in if you want to get to bed any time before 3 pm after a red eye.

Business Trip staying for 2 nights at the recommendation of a colleague. Hotel is what it is as a 3 star goes, but rooms, whilst basic, where clean and functional.
The recommendation however was in respect of the restaurant. Nothing grand or extravagant regarding the layout, but the house menu was a surprise to review, and the food was excellent.
Congratulations to the Chef - Lylian Dargent.
Would definitely book again.

From Charles De Gaulle airport via Metro/RER it is extremely far to Nanterre with a number of changes needed to be made, once we arrived at the location we had to go through an underpass/subway which was extremely run-down and dirty and sometimes featured a number of intimidating homeless beggars, the area surrounding the Quality Inn was sparse with a few small convenience shops and a market on once a week. When we arrived the lobby and reception area was dark and dated, we were however allowed to check in early with a non-smoking room, the lift that took us to our room contained graffiti, this may be due to the large number of student school parties that attend the Quality Inn, our room was very small and extremely basic with a view of a car park. The room however was fairly clean and maintained by the rude and unapproachable maid service. Breakfast was pleasant with a small and friendly dining area offering continental food. Overall the average room and service was completely over shadowed by the fact that this hotel was completely out of the way from all general and main attractions of Paris, I would NOT stay here again, extremely inconevenient.

Room Tip: If you do not wish to travel a lot to main attractions DO NOT STAY HERE.
