Location
The hotel is located in a predomiantly business area, which for the most part is very quiet. For the traveller on foot, the hotel is a 15 minute walk in the daytime through a park to Nanterre Prefecture RER station (this provides an excellent regular service into central Paris); at night it is a 20-25 minute walk avoiding the park. There is a bus stop nearby if you can work out where to catch it at the station! La Defense is about a 25 minute walk away. If you are going to Roland Garros an alternative is to walk to Puteaux tram stop (20-25 mins) and get the metro at Parc St Cloud. There is little else in the area and a walk towards Puteaux may be better for restaurants than towards La Defense.
Hotel/Room
The check-in was quick and easy, The room was comfortable enough but there seemed to be a lack of air-conditioning. The breakfast was the normal contintental type, and although the choice was not huge, it was an adequate start to the day. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, there is some noise from other guests, however my main complaint was that my room was situated at the rear immediately over the kitchen area. It was particularly annoying that the noise came from the hotel staff whom i thought should have had more concern for their guests,
Check-out was equally as quick and efficient.
Overall - without the noise from the kitchen, i would have been prefecetly happy with my stay and would stay again if i could pick a room at the front.

Room Tip: Avoid low level rooms at the back above the kitchen

I have for many years been a regular business travel. I like the Ibis hotels for cleanliness and price. I booked for six nights at this hotel. Its clean and modern. But I could get no sleep until one am nearly every night due to the noise from other residents. It would appear that this hotel has little if any soundproofing between the rooms. The staff were unable to move me due to being fully booked. If I had not paid for the whole 6 days, I would have left after the first night. Also, the Hotel is some way from La Defence. So unless you are a hiker, you need to get the excellent regular bus no. 258 from at the top of the road (5mins).

Room Tip: Find another hotel

We stayed here twice. Once as a couple and once in a group of 4. Both experiences were great. The hotel is just as good as any other Ibis. Also if you are coming to Paris by a car; this is just the place to stay. Very near the Eiffel and other monuments and also very affordable. Online booking sometimes has discount and is better to secure a room.

Came here with a group in August 2012. The hotel is in the Nanterre district just a little distance from La Defense. It is smack bang in the middle of the business area. Everthing therfore is shut at weekends, the hotel restaurant and the restaurants nearby- so no food can be had anywhere near. You can order a takeaway pizza or go a short walk (10mins) to an Indian and Moroccon restaurant.
Check in at hotel was fast and efficient, rooms clean and comfortable but quite small. There is soap/shower gel/shampoo dispensers in bathroom which is clean and adequate for your needs. The small bar is next to reception adjacent to the restaurant, where they stock draft and bottled beers at Paris prices 6.40 Euros for a pint!! So beware. The nearest RER station is about 15mins walk or short bus ride from near the hotel, and you can transfer into central Paris in about 20mins if you dont get lost!!
Breakfast a general continental buffet was sufficient, bread, croissants ham cheese all the usual, with juice and hot drinks. It was a good breakfast and well received by all.
The hotel well placed for Paris without central Paris tariff and easy to find from A86 route from most of Paris.Been to numerous Paris Hotels and for price, location etc is reasonably good.,Staff were very helpfull for which I am very grateful.

Room Tip: Quiet at weekends in week choose room at back for quietness or front to view the square and fountain...
