Poor stay

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Families - 28/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall did not feel the hotel was well managed and did not serve the guests well. Check in was slow and disorganised with the check in staff joking and taking pictures of each other rather than helping me. I had prebooked check in but this was not possible. Had asked for sofa bed to be made but this was not done before check in. The cupboards were falling off and old and the bedding not well made. Air conditioning didnt cool the room on a hot day. Breakfast was the worst experience with badly managed food and cereals constantly running out and not replaced. Very poor Novotel.

Good stay for business

Upon arrival, they had messed up the booking of our 2 suites. Unfortunately only 1 suite was available. This however was compensated with 2 other rooms, and free parking. The location of the hotel is very nice, with direct access to the metro. It is ideal to explore the city.

Very well located

philippeks Family - 05/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Great stay for a unique event, new year eve 2020. Fantastic view on Paris for the firework. Nevertheless, it was a bit too warm in the room and the thermostat didn't work even when having it at the lower temperature. Otherwise all was fine.

Pascal C Business - 23/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Good location, but crowded at the time I stayed, with many groups arriving by bus. Room clean, well equipped, though no bathrobe and slippers despite the advert on the website when I booked (without any change despite the fact I asked at the front desk to get them..). There was cleaning work at the room floor, a fact that was not mentioned at the time of reservation, which resulted in inconvenient noise. Breakfast abondant, with nice staff. To summarize, a good location for staying with a travel group, staff at the front desk not enough attentive. I would not recommend it for romantic stay, or even for individuals in business travel.

This hotel used to be better

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

348bob2018 Couples - 21/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

The restaurant was very mediocre. The first day the Wi Fi was not working and the second day it was very slow. Some of the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful ,others were extremely hostile and uncooperative. Because our flight was at 6 in the morning we wanted to check out the night before but the lady at the front desk refused and we had to check out very early in the morning.

Good location

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

ClaudiaLilianaC3 Family - 31/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Comfortable room, good location, comfortable bed. There is no coordination or efficiency of the staff at the reception, and with this i had additional costs. In wanting to make a reclamation staff tell me that this person was a practicant. In my opinion the hotel should not delegate certain responsibilities to a practitioner or if they do not know should ask to another , before making clients lose money.

Vasile P Family - 25/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

The location of the hotel is great. Nearest parking is Indigo Season. The room in not to big and looks a little bit obsolete but it is ok. The staff is really nice. The hotel is near to a metro station .

Looks Great but in need of a lot of TLC

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

JeLuca13 Family - 20/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Great bar, good food, the rooms are very tired and shabby. Family rooms are way too small. The rooms are very stuffy, dusty and warm with no air to circulate unless you switch the fans on which blow hot air. We asked for fans, but they never materialized. On a positive, good location for La Defense and Neuilly.

Worst Novotel Stay so Far

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Soumallya S Business - 11/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

Air Con does not work and I wake up perspiring every morning. I check in late night and I wait 1 hour and AC does not work and then I am told weird logic how AC should work. Even after making to 5 degrees it does not work. Then I change room after repeated requests and then same problem. I think they control centrally and the room control is just for fun! Not acceptable. No one smiles at reception and 300 EUR deposit per night even without asking me is a shock. Even if large 5 stars it is NOT common and not acceptable.

Panorama of Paris

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

JON O Business - 21/11/2018 TripAdvisor review

I stayed here on business as convenient for La Defense. Bedroom was of good size very comfortable, quiet and well appointed with a great panoramic view of Paris. Service was a little impersonal and the restaurant service not up to usual Accor standards. Would stay here again if in the area, but not my favourite hotel in Paris.

Dear Guest Thank you very much for taking the time to share détails about your recent stay at Novotel Paris la Défense We are pleased to read you enjoyed the great view of Paris from our room . We hope we will be able to welcome you again very soon Sincerely
