If you look at a map, you'd think that the Novotel Porte d'Orleans is too far out of the way to be a convenient place to set up a base for exploring around Paris. You couldn't be more wrong!
Well connected with the number 4 Metro line and also a tram line, the hotel is quite well situated for going to all the usual tourist haunts.
The neighborhood around the hotel is refreshingly non-touristy. A walk about 15 minutes to the south will take you to the Vache Noire shopping centre where you can feel like a local!
As for the hotel itself, we were impressed. We had stayed at a Novotel in New York near Times Square, and felt this hotel was up to the same standard as its Big Apple counterpart. Large, clean rooms and quiet!
The breakfast buffet at the hotel is very filling, and if you're able to score a deal on a booking site that includes the price of it, it's really worth the money. The lounge is also cosy and comfortable.
Customer service was friendly and we felt very welcomed.
If there was any issue at all, it was the frustrating (at first) setup to connect with the wifi. The included service can frequently require you to sign in with your name and email address. We soon realized though that this is not Novotel's issue, and all free wifi providers in France all have similar setups. It's something culturally you have to get used to.
We enjoyed the Novotel Paris Porte d'Orleans. It was a very nice stay!
