    « Might be ok for one night if you are happy with location »

    Location: We booked this hotel not knowing the location and because it was cheaper than other big names. You get what you paid for. Not impressed with the area. About 7-8km from the center too far to walk and the train was very crowded around 10:30am so walked on the way back. Staff: friendly and helpful Wi-fi: ok - weak every now and then Room: good size room with too much stuff, strange marks on the carpet (black and red...) and on the walls, toilet away from the bathroom, so you have to walk around the kitchenette to wash your hands afterwards (not ideal). No fridge or minibar but you have a range hood and a microwave. Could not turn off the heater in the bathroom so was a bit hot during the night. Overall strange smell around the corridors. Carpark: Free if you can get one on front of the hotel otherwise basement of the hotel for €15 a day. Breakfast: We did not choose the breakfast. No comment. Few bakeries in the area not many dinner options. If you are familiar and happy with the area it might be ok. Not for me thanx

    « Average hotel but friendly staff »

    Ok so firstly, I stay in this hotel purely for the location close to my office when I travel to Paris for work so in that respect it wins points on location. Rooms are compact and clean and have a good bathroom and even come with a small fridge (not minibar) if you want to store your own food. I have stayed here a number of times and have always had the same experience;there are always large groups that stay here and sadly if they all go down for breakfast early (which they do, trust me) they simply wipe out all of the available tables (there isn't a formal dining room, just an area off reception) and ALL of the food. I'm talking 40/45 people at a time. When you're trying to have a quick bite before work this can be a tad stressful but the staff are pleasant and try to accommodate whenever possible. The team on reception speak good English (if you don't parle Français) and can help with taxi bookings. Not my favourite but that's more to do with the large groups vs the actual hotel.

    « efficient room with work place »

    The breakfast was fine, lot of choices, even sausages and scrambled eggs ;-) it is a clean hotel and the room is small but has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The price quality is ok. It is a pity there is no metro station on walking distance. But public transport (bus) is very good.

    « Business Trip »

    Very sympatic and good situated Hotel. Normaly i would prefer this, because Price and Quality are in a very good relation. But to my Business Location was it a longer distance wenn normal. But the Hotel i could ever recommend.

    « Great Hotel »

    Super clean hotel with very comfortable beds and pillows. Location is not the best for tourist attractions but public transportation is very close by. Breakfast bar with amazing options. Staff was very kind.

    « Exactly what I needed »

    The service was excellent and the reception staff were very attentive. The bedroom was excellent. The only issue I had was finding the hotel. I had looked it up online before I left my start point. As I was travelling by train, the directions at the time were not clear. I therefore spent a long time looking. However, I understand that the hotel had not been open long at this time, so maybe this has been rectified now. If not maybe give instructions that are simple eg take the train to.....take the exit at ...end of the platform, turn right out of the station and keep going straight ahead.?

    « Good location »

    Stayed here for two nights for the euros. Secure parking at €15 per day. Clean and tidy rooms with an option for self catering. 15 mins to the centre of Paris on train. 5 min walk to station. Carrefour close by so convenient for supplies. Booked two rooms and they charged us for two cars we only had one so are waiting for a refund. Just check your bill when leaving.

    « Abysmal »

    Well, I'm really disappointed as our flight to Paris was cancelled one day before due to the fuel strike in France. Apart from not being refunded I wasn't even offered to transfer the two nights which I paid for to another date. Thanks for nothing BEST WESTERN!

    « Loved it »

    « New hotel but close to nothing »

    Although this hotel is new and the rooms quite spacious. It is not an easy commute to central Paris. As it is in a quiet residential neighbor hood. There are no great restaurants around. Pay the little extra and stay closer to the city. After the first day there was never any coffee refills. There were no tissues in the room. The toilet was always running and the construction next door woke me up at 730 am. Most hotel offer complementary breakfast not this place. You also have to pay $10 euro to use the fridge. New one for me.

    « Comfortable and Pleasant Hotel »

    I stayed in this hotel over the weekend during the bank holidays and was overall comfortable and glad with the stay. Although the fridge was locked but there was a microwave which you can heat up some snacks during the middle of the night should you still feel hungry. The layout of the room was very nice and stylish that includes a coffee machine for those whom likes expresso-type of coffee. Although there is no Metro or train nearby and it takes about 20 mins walk to the nearest station but I still feel safe. Nearby restaurant seems limited but there are not too bad as well.

    « Could be more cozy »

    Hotel is very well located, close to the train station. it is clean, rooms are decent, buf for me it does not give impression it is cozy or feel like home. Dark colors in the lobby and plain style of the room.

    « Unbelievable »

    Maybe it's unfair this kind of critic for an hotel that after all is enough comfortable, clean well arranged and so but...it's unthinkable to have such a bad customer service at as early as ...11.00h p.m., so not in the meddle of the night. I started to request a simple blanket because the room doesn't have any spare blanket or edredon. The air conditioning is not connected for heating in beginning of May...in Paris!! And the bed has a very thin edredon. The receptionist, called Christophe postpones the delivery of this simple spare blanket more then one hour so I could only sleep much latter then I was expecting and I have the right to. Also the English level from this person is not at required level because after all this waiting, he delivered me....some meal that was not requested. I had to explain that was....a blanket so more 15 min waiting. Really unbelievable in a civilized country and at a hotel chain with some brand name in the market.

    « Good value, modern style and well maintained »

    I stayed in the hotel for two nights. It is a little away from the city center, but there is a train station 15 minutes walking. There is a supermarket right below the hotel. The room had a modern style, it was clean and with comfortable bed and enough space. The only downside is that the refrigerator was locked, and I had to pay to use it to store things that I buy.

    « Great weekend »

    Great hotel although the staff need to keep up to date with local happenings. Asked for a restaurant recommendation only to find it had closed. Location is great for Paris better off staying more central to eat though. Local train station only 10 minutes into Paris and the metro is easy to get around on.

    « Interesting design »

    Location excellent for business, whether in Paris or i.e. in the direction of Poissy area at less than 30 minutes, as well as for visiting La Defense and Bois de Colombes or trips further into Paris. Possibility to just enter via de parking garage, so no hassle with double parking in front of the hotel. Rooms splendid and lobby/lounge design very interesting, but very convenient for business and leisure.

    « Very nice stay »

    Very nice stay at this hotel, rooms are modern and nicely furnished, the staff is nice and the breakfast really complete. The only bad point would be the state of the walls and carpet, that were stained.

    « Excellent choise, located 5 minutes from train to Paris »

    The staff is very friendly. The parking below the hotel costs 15 euro per day, so you can leave your car safe. The rooms are tast full decoratedand also spacious. The wifi worked good. This was the second time we stayed here and it was certainly not the last time. Within a short walk from about 5 minutes you arrive at the train station of Bois Colombes. Train ticket to the center of Paris ( St Lazaire) 2,75 per person. It takes about 10 minutes. This time we went here to celebrate the new year. All the public transport, including to Bois Colombes) is free from 12.00 o clock on 31 december till 12.00 o clock 1st of Januar. We can recommend this hotel highly.

    « Nice Hotel for Price »

    No complaints, the hotel was clean and the amenities were acceptable. The breakfast was great as well. The only problem was that there is no food open late in the area =/ but other than that there were no complaints.

    « Nice clean hotel! »

    The Best Western Plus Suitcase Hotel in Bois Colombes, La Defense, France was very clean and well maintained. Our family spent 5 nights while sight seeing in Paris. Very close to the commuter train which connected to the Metro. Many nice restaurants nearby. Small grocery store on the same block was very convenient. Somewhat challenging to request additional supplies such as face clothes and house coats which were an option. The buffet breakfast was quite nice overall though a small seating area. There are renovations that will apparently enlarge this area soon. Quite a distance from CDG airport, costly taxi ride. Overall recommend this location with 4 stars.

    « Business »

    I've stayed in the hotel for two night. Rooms are clean and nice, very comfortable bed, clean bathroom and what I really liked is the TV which has USB inputs so I could watch my films on it :) Breakfast really nice - good choice of bread, rolls, croissants, ham, cheese, fruits, yogurts and cereal. the only thing which was really disappointing is that the water bottle and coffee in your room is not refilled during your stay... so when I got back late night after work I had to drink tap water...

    « Good hotel in a close suburb to central Paris »

    When we arrived in our room, there entire carpet in front of the bathroom was wet. After a quick discussion with the friendly front desk team, we got an upgrade to a suite. The suite was very nice. Breakfast was not included, but there's a supermarket right next to hotel, where you can buy sandwiches and croissants. What you need to know, is that you can't reach the hotel with the Metro, as the hotel is in a close suburb (You need to take a RER train (1 Stop), which is not complicated)

    « I will not stay there again »

    Most of the staff were kind and over accommodating, I had to be shown four rooms before I found a barely acceptable room. ROOM 1. Carpet was FILTHY, furniture knicked, walls scuffed and in dire need of paint, and the towels were on the floor!! Never mind the pad locks on all the drawers ... ROOM 2. Carpet not as filthy as room 1, but still grungy. Walls needed paint. ROOM 3. Still grungy. Room 4. Minimally acceptable and I mean minimally. In all the rooms I've stayed in over the years, this place is the worst. It barely passes as a two star let alone a 4. I tried to cancel my reservation and get my money back, but They wouldn't budge. I took pictures, but I'll have to add them later from my desktop. Do yourself a favor and stay closer to Paris. You are not saving money as taxis and trains offset the LITTLE you might save.

    « Excellent hotel »

    Clean and very nice room. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast not the best, but OK for a standard hotel. Train station is just around the corner, so perfect to move into the hart of Paris from there. Lots of little restaurants nearby, but I prefer the restaurants near gare lazare which is only 8 minutes away by train.

    « Great location. Lovely hotel »

    This hotel was really comfortable and clean. It was located 2 minutes walk from the train station. The train takes 9 minutes to get in to the centre of Paris. Friendly and helpful staff. Good value for money. We go to Paris regularly and we will definitley stay there again. By the way the bed was exceptionally comfortable !

    « Nice clean hotel, with ok location »

    Nice and clean hotel for a couple of nights, but quite noisy (not good noise insulation within the building) and room was quite basic (eventhough quite large room). Small breakfast area which was quite crowded and in the middle of the lobby so not very cosy.

    « Stayed at Hotel to visit Paris »

    « Surprisingly large rooms for Paris »

    Had a single night stay here recently which is close enough to the city centre for business purposes but outside of the rush of the city. I usually stay in the heart of La Defense, but decided to try somewhere different and wasn't disappointed. There's a square which is popular for restaurants a 15 minute walk away but nothing in the immediate area other than a couple of takeaway restaurants for pizza and Asian food. A five minute walk to a Japanese restaurant which served great food at a good price and lovely atmosphere. Dining area for breakfast can be a little hectic but manageable. Coffee machines in each room with 4 espresso coffee pods supplied. Spacious rooms, extremely comfortable beds and a modern, clean bathroom.

    « Don't understand the previous recommendations »

    I stayed here based on the high previous ratings but I never actually read the reviews in great detail. I read them after the first day because I was very unimpressed by staff and breakfast service. I'm confused because the problems are flagged up by reviewers but then 4 or 5 ratings are still given. I expect a lot more from a 4 star hotel. I guess the rating is not official. A major positive is the rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The beds are excellent. That's the end of the positives. Staff at breakfast are rude and fairly incompetent. The breakfast area is very small but yet 2 members of staff cannot keep the food, cutlery and plates stocked. Tables are not cleared quickly. Noticed many guests sat waiting for 10/15 minutes before they could begin breakfast because there were no plates or bowls. Side plates are offered, not proper plates. The plates are genuinely no bigger than a saucer. Seems senseless to me because then guests need about 4 plates and then the clean plates keep running out! You have to boil your own eggs. I asked if the hot water was there to boil the eggs or reheat them, i.e. are the eggs cooked? The member of staff made me feel like an idiot for asking such a silly question. I heard the same question asked by multiple guests. They got the same treatment. The problem with this is you place your egg into the water to boil and then another guest, either accidently or not, lifts your egg. When you go back 5 minutes later to lift what you think is your egg, it is actually not cooked. Of course what happens next is you crack a raw egg onto your saucer. I found it very amusing the amount of cracked raw eggs I saw on empty tables that hadn't been cleared yet. The location is grand but not great. This is not a fault by the hotel as they do not claim to be central but I would not recommend the location. There are hotels within city zone 1 that are as good a standard at a similar price. The reviewer who said you can access the hotel via the RER is 100% wrong. You must get a transilien train from saint Lazare. It is only 2 stops and takes 10 minutes. Then you have a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro. The cost of a return ticket is €5.50. This adds up if you need to visit the city every day which you will do because there is nothing to do in Bois Colombes. If you are staying for a few days and you are visiting Disneyland and you have 2 airport transfers then buy the zones 1-5 city pass for the amount of days you need. The guy at the airport told us we would not need one. We believed him. We stayed for 4 nights. A 5 day unlimited travel cost €60. The cost of a single from Orly was €7.50. A return ticket to Disneyland was €15. 4 return tickets to the city was €22. A book of 10 inner city metro tickets was €15. A single to Charles to gaulle was €12.50. As you see we spent over €70 on tickets and we had to juggle lots of different tickets. Take my advice and get the city pass and have one ticket does all. Even if you are at a slight loss I would still advise the city pass. The hotel offers tea and coffee on the first night only. I have never stayed at a hotel that does not replace the tea, coffee and milk each day. Especially a 4 star hotel. This is very disappointing, considering all it would cost the hotel. I asked for more tea and milk and was refused. Was told it would be replaced at next house keeping visit. It was not. Again this seems so silly to me. I could have booked 1 night at a time and checked out and back in every day. Would have cost me the same and would have got my tea and coffee replaced. Cannot recommend this hotel. There are much better in Paris for similar price.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    Hotel standards were superb. The rooms were clean and my children absolutely loved their stay. The kitchenette area also was a bonus as we could make our drinks and had supermarket next to the hotel for snacks etc. the rooms were cleaned to a good standard. We didnt have breakfast there so cant comment on how it was. There was minimal noise levels and rooms were bigger than ordinary Paris hotels which is a plus especially when travelling with a family.we loved the fact it was outside central paris and area is laid back and near train station,2supermakets,pizza shops etc

    « Great hotel, excellent value. »

    Great staff, modern clean hotel, delicious breakfast, close to commuter train, two stop to access all of Paris! The room was clean and very modern, green hotel which saves the environment, heated towels, rain shower option and fog free mirror in spacious bathroom, large room with comfortable beds and amenities, free Wi-Fi but access a little tricky at end of the room/hall. Staff was very nice, pleasant and professional with warm greetings and prom[t service. Delicious hot and cold breakfast was a true value and great start to the day. Modern elevators with a lounge in the lobby and great Carrefour food mart next door gives great food/drink options at low price. nice and friendly restaurants serving home made pizza, Lebanese and crepes nearby.
