Mercure Paris La Defense Parc
- What's Included
My fault as I should have looked at the address and map but I saw the name La Defense Grande Arche and my office is close by and so I booked. However, it is a mile away in Nanterre. The hotel is undergoing renovation and my room was one that had been refurbished. It was clean and bright and the bed was comfortable. I could only spot 2 sockets available to recharge laptop etc. The shower was one of those big headed ones where the water just drops. I love them. However, the soap was a squeezy bottle. I think individual portions show a bit more class. The hotel is located above the RER station and you can hear the trains coming and going (although I did sleep well). Aim high for peace and quiet. The dining room was shut due to the refurbishment but breakfast was available. Breakfast could do with a bit more supervision. I went for a refill of grapefruit but the carafe was empty. I thought I'd shift to orange but there was none of that either. I was comfortable enough but while this is a good location for Nanterre it is 15 minutes walk back to La Defense.
The location is great, just in front of the RER station "Nanterre prefecture", two station from the biggest Paris attractions. I would recommend to book 6th-7th floors in a privilege room, equipped with Nespresso machine and many other extras for the perfect leisure or business stay.
I stayed here for 5 nights ,choosing the hotel due to its close proximity to L'Ecole du Ballet de L'Opera de Paris ( 250 metres/ 2minute walk). and the RER station Nanterre Prefecture. The hotel is divided into 2 buildings and the RER station is between them. On exiting the RER the main reception is to the left. We had a pleasant welcome from Simon who patiently accepted my attempts to speak French and was very accommodating in assigning us a twin room in the second ( quieter) building. The entrance and elevators were security protected by the room key swipe cards. The rooms were spacious but quite dimly lit. Kettles were provided with paper cups and a couple of coffee sachets.Only flavoured teas were provided in the rooms but ordinary tea was available at breakfast. The wifi was consistent. There were few electric sockets , one of which was blocked and another disintegrated. There was an in room refrigerator with a single complimentary small bottle of Evian on the first day. The twin beds were narrow but comfortable. The shower was hot and was situated over the bath.The towels were rather thin.Despite previous reviews mentioning noise and vibration from the RER this wasn't apparent in our room, and the surrounding area was quiet at night. The breakfast was very poor. We were part of a group allocated to eat in a separate room from the main restaurant. The service was very poor and waitresses unfriendly. Often there were no bowls or spoons. One morning, with still over an hour of scheduled breakfast time left there were no bread products, croissants or pain au chocolat. It took over half an hour for these to be replenished. It was not made clear at the time of reserving the hotel on a special rate that we would be provided with such an inferior breakfast service, including on the first morning of our stay in which I had not paid a reduced rate. The hotel has a restaurant open Monday through Thursday serving traditional French fare. There are a number of restaurants in the area serving pizza and pasta. The fitness centre was minimalist containing only 4 pieces of equipment - a technogym stationary bicycle, reclined bicycle, abdominal crunch machine and a cross trainer and 2 floor mats; water and towels were provided. Overall a disappointing stay, more of a budget hotel rather than a business hotel.
I stayed at the Mercure La Defense Grande Arche for a week at the end of October to beginning of November in 2017. The hotel staff, particularly Nathan, were wonderfully helpful! The main areas of the hotel were nice and comfortable. There was a bit of train noise in my first room and as I am a light sleeper I was given a new room in their second building where I slept very well. The hotel is very near a train station and in a wonderful area for walking and exploring La Defense.
was booked to see the rolling stones in paris,and through a wrong date booking made by sandown travel agents in sandton city(don't use them) the hotel staff were kind enough to ensure I had the 2 nights that was supposed to be booked and made sure I would not have to go looking for a hotel on a very busy week in paris. I cannot thank the front desk staff enough for ensuring I had really nice accomadation for my stay,the hotel is ideally situated and is clean and well worth the stay
