The hotel is located in the middle of nowhere. I arrived at Orsay train station (6km from the hotel) at 10pm and I couldn't find any taxi, even though I called 10-12 different companies for 2 hours long, including big companies. Hotel did NOT help at all with finding a taxi, except giving some numbers.. For the first time, I came across to a hotel which is not capable to arrange a taxi for a guest! It was very disappointing. Luckily, I met a nice French person who offered me a ride to the hotel and I made it to the hotel 2.5 hours after arriving the train station.
Being tires, starving and cold, I asked for some food. Kitchen was, of course, closed but the receptionist prepared me a sandwich with FROZEN tomatoes and cheese... Other than these two aspects, it was a nicely decorated clean hotel.

Have you ever forgotten something valuable in a hotel room? Happened to me last week at the Novotel in Saclay. A few hours after my departure (luckily at a meeting not far from the hotel then), the hotel sent an email... You have forgotten... Very nice of them. Had a taxi pick it up from the hotel and bring to meeting place before driving back to CDG. First class service!

I've stayed here for one night on business - Given the price I wasn't expecting much, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

Good, clean, well-equiped rooms. Good breakfast. Easy parking. Friendly service. Can't really ask for more.

Approach of the Hotel Manager was great disappointment. What I asked for in very polite and explanatory manner was to change my rate on the room to include breakfast so I can claim it to my employer as business expense which is in line with my company policies. If room charge and breakfast charge are in separate columns - I will not get re-imbursment (not very sensible but this is other topic). Taking into the account that price for breakfast is 14 EUR and my stay of 12 days - we are getting to fairly interesting number that should be paid from my pocket. This has been proven to be great difficulty to the staff of the hotel. Maybe it was due to the fact that none of them was able to be fluent in English and maybe it was just the nature. The most interesting argument why this change is not possible was - my 2 colleagues told you it is not possible so I have to tell the same. Big shame. And this was not unusual request I haven't used in other hotel before where everything was OK (even in Paris)...
