Do not expect too much for your money, because this is a budget business location for short stays. For this it is acceptable. Conveniently located nearby La Defence with lots of small restaurants around the corner. Beds are good but fill almost all the space of the room. The bathroom is like the one in a caravan, big people having difficulties using the shower cabin. Wifi has lots of blind spots in the room. Had bad luck looking at the dust bins in front of the basement window. Room is in need of renovation with dirty walls and rusty shower cabin. Basic breakfast. Free coffee and tea all day and night.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled on business

Stayed 4 nights here with 2 other friends, our rooms were very pleasant, and we overlooked a quiet courtyard, 2 of our rooms were large, with double beds, the third was a quirky single with a staircase to the bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor. The beds were very comfortable and although the decor was a little tired the rooms were clean. The staff were very friendly and offered plenty of good advice, There is a coffee machine on the go at all times so, although there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room you can get them from the reception. The rooms also had a small mini bar. The breakfast was good, bread, croissants, cheeses and hams, coffee and tea, cakes and biscuits, cereals and yogurt with plenty of jam and honey.
The hotel is situated a ten minute walk from L'esplande de la defense, in the business district so the whole area was very quiet at night, and in the dark it is easy to get a bit lost. There are, however, plenty of maps.

Stayed here for three nights August 2013 with a great deal from AA Getaways (sadly ceased). Lovely small hotel with lots of nice touches including safe in the room and a disco shower!
We got lost first night coming back from city centre and at around midnight there are few people around to ask directions. Remember to take exit 2 from metro and follow signs to Puteaux centre. Also if arriving from Gare Nord don't use the suggested convoluted route (RER B, then A then Metro). Simply use Metro 4 and change at Chatalet (spelling?) for Metro 1. Takes about an hour as the stop for the hotel is a good 40 minutes from Chatalet (Notre Dame).
Liked the free coffee, other hotels take note! Cannot fault this well equipped hotel, even has a small garden for breakfast or relaxing in.

Room Tip: All rooms are small, nothing to choose between but as lift is slow and cramped suggest 1st floor

Me and a friend stayed here for 3 nights in July 2013, we were really impressed with all the friendly receptionists, the delicious breakfasts, the clean and comfortable room and loved the colour changing shower lights!! I will be recommending this hotel to anyone that is visiting Paris and wants a reasonably priced and friendly place to stay.

Recently stayed on KGB Deals offer run by AA Getaways, this was my second visit and cannot fault the hotel/staff/facilities. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - most helpful and polite. Approx 10mins walk from the metro. Fab continental choice for breakfast. Would stay again and reccomend this hotel

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of an AA Getaways package.
Check in was not until 5pm, but the hotel had a 'luggage room' and so we arrived around 10 to leave our bags and get in some sight seeing. On our arrival the staff were very poilte and welcoming, showing us to our rooms.
The room was quite small, but suitable. A good size ensuite bathroom and adequately sized wardrobe. The room also had a TV, mini-bar, safe and much appreciated air conditioning. I found the bed comfortable, despite some other reviews saying otherwise, but everyone is different. (The beds were two singles pushed together as a double, which was fine for my friend and I).
Breakfast ran from 7-10am and we went around 9:30 each morning and found this to be quite an empty time, but still with plenty of choice of food. The breakfast was continential, so consisted of croissants, bread rolls, cheeses, dried meats (ham, salami), bread and also cereal. There was a variety of jams and spreads, as well as dried fruits and small pastries. Orange juice and a hot drink machine was also available (and the hot drink machine was available, free of charge, throughout the whole day.)
The staff were very helpful with any requests or questions - they happily changed a 50Euro note into smaller notes and helped my friend open a bottle of wine.
A lovely hotel with lovely staff and I would definitely stay again.

Charming hotel at just a few minutes walk of the metro (Esplanade de la Défense). Very good quality for the price you pay, with a tasty breakfast. Nice smell in the rooms thanks to their own perfume-lamps. The hotel is situated in a quit area, but has good connections with the center of Paris (direct line to the Louvre).
I know which hotel I book for future visits to the city of lights!
Thank you Michael at the reception for the very nice service!
