I have stayed here a couple of times now and both times have been quite consistent; it is a wonderfully functional boutique hotel. It is quite small, but it has quite a lot going for it, not only in terms of what it is, but location too. I was visiting clients in La Defense and in Suresne, both of which are about 15 mins walking distance (in opposite directions). Puteaux itself has a great "village" atmosphere, with quite a few small bars and restaurants in walking distance, including the one right next door. Unfortunately I have stayed here only when that one is closed, but I must make a point of checking next time!
Rooms are small, as are most in Paris, but are well equipped, modern and comfortable. The lobby area doubles as a breakfast room, with a pretty good spread of hot and cold items. There is a courtyard at the back, in which to relax and enjoy a cold beer, if you don't feel like venturing out. Best of all though, is the staff and the way the booking and check in/out procedure works. I booked using the hotel's website, which was very painless and was pleasantly greeted when I checked in the second time (after a gap of nearly a year), with a "welcome back".
If you need a big hotel with full amenities, then this is not for you. However, if you value a well run, clean and friendly boutique hotel on this side of town, then you can't do much better.
