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.
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.
