We had this hotel booked for a weekend in Paris and we arrived early and asked if we could check in early. We were happy to pay extra for this but found the receptionist to be very rude and unhelpful. I then went online and booked a dayroom at a local hotel (arena). I had a 2_year old with me and was quite disappointed that the hotel didn't help us out or offer an alternative, even though we were willing to pay for the service. Once we had checked in at l'amandier, I found the room to be much smaller than expected. It was tight with a very small TV and no minibar/fridge so I couldn't chill my child's milk. In comparison, the arena hotel, just around the corner had a much bigger room and minibar. The staff were very withdrawn and avoided eye contact and I found the stay to be very inadequate. Parking spaces were limited, although the WiFi was decent. I wouldn't recommend staying here. Better off booking the arena hotel just around the corner. Much better rooms and service.
This was our fourth time at this unassuming hotel. A three night stay here for my wife to visit nearby sister. This hotel is principally for business people, and occasional seasonal tourists. It helps Receptionists if you speak French. Pluses: Very clean hotel, airy, nicely laid out, lift. Breakfast OK - machine gives good coffee with choices, croissants and bread, scrambled egg, processed ham slices, cheese slices, cereals, fruit juices. (Go early - they tend to run out of things). Convenient bus stop for La Defense, and Metro. Park opposite. Minuses: (In Room 208) only two hangers in wardrobe. No plug for bathroom sink. Requesting one ('un bouchon lavabo') is a big deal. Bath has no grab rail - beware elderly or less fit guests! Glass shower panel sits on side of bath gives wet floor. No plastic shower cap provided. My W.I.S.T.A. (Would I Stay There Again?) Rating: 8 / 10 - and it's only 400 metres from my Sister-in-Law's flat.
WE have books this place as we are passing by to go to Belgium . the reviews on this hotel was not that good but we thought it is only 2 days . it was the best place we booked was very nice and clean . it was totally different to what we seen on trip adviser . staff are very helpful. they helped us as booking was messed up and we had one room short. I did say that I had two of my girls needed room to stay and I can't book them elsewhere.The lady was very very helpful and they said no way they will allow this . the booked them in one of the room that was newly referbushed. it was nice of them to sort me out. Breakfast was nice and every thing was great . thanks to every one at the L'Amandier you have made our 2 day stay great . the Wasity Family
Stayed here for 2 nights whilst seeing 'Rolling Stones' at 'U' Arena. Excellent small clean hotel with very helpful staff. Good breakfast. Bus stops outside hotel, 2 euros to La Defense. Metro into central Paris.
Nice and quiet hotel with excellent breakfast. Polite and helpful personnel. In 15 minutes walk you may reach the RER station, but at night it is better to take the bus 159 in front of the hotel, since you have to walk through a park which is not lighted. Near to the hotel there is an exhibition space and if you have to attend a meeting there the hotel is very convenient. Our room was not very large but ok for few days.
Third time here for my wife and me. The reason we stay here is because it is close to where my sister-in-law lives. On this occasion we booked a 'Superior Double'. It was average-sized with a good King-sized bed, and efficient air-con. Small wardrobe with those infuriating clothes hangers which you have to hook into a tiny slot. Coffee, tea sachets, and a cordless kettle with a lead that was so short that we had to move the unit on which it stood in front of the room door to enable the kettle to reach the nearest electric plug point. There was no sink-plug in the bathroom sink and when I requested one from the Receptionist who spoke no English, but with help from a passing guest, I was offered a change of room, which I declined. Eventually the Receptionist accompanied me to our room, saw the empty plug-hole, cried "Aha!" and later returned with a plug. During our four-day stay we saw five Receptionists of whom only two spoke/understood English. The cleaning standard was excellent although on one day the bathroom bin was not emptied, and on another our tea/coffee sachets were not supplied. The breakfast room had a coffee machine which gave good coffee, and there were the usual croissants and bread. Each day there was scrambled egg , processed ham slices, cheese slices, cereals, fruit juices. One day there were chipolatas. I would advise going to breakfast as early as you can as some things which run out may not be replenished. My W.I.S.T.A. (Would I Stay There Again?) Rating: Yes, because it's cheap and cheerful, and only 400 metres from my Sister-in-Law's flat. If you don't have a nearby relative you could do better, but you'd need to pay more.
On the plus side the location of the hotel in a residential area should be mentioned. It is well connected to RER and Metro in La Defense and the staff are very helpful in explaining everything in English. On the negative side avoid a room facing the street, gets very noisy at night!
The "L'Amandier" is a good choice, if the following points are important to you: You want a hotel in paris, without paying a lot of money? You want a good transport connection to go to the centrum of the city? You want to spend most of the time outside and come to the hotel only to sleep? You want to have a good breakfast to start your day? You want to have a parking space without paying? Then the "L'Amandier" is the best option for you. The prices are more then good for a hotel in Paris. Yes, it's not a 5-star-hotel but you can sleep good, it's not too cold neither too warm, you have a toilet plus warm water for the shower and towels. The breakfast buffet is also good. You have eggs, baguette, cheese, ham, bacon, crossaints (with and without chocolate), juice and a coffee mashine. Directly in front of the hotel you have parking spaces. It is included for guests. Also in front of the hotel you find a bus station. Here you can start your visit of Paris. The line 159 leads you to a central-station-like called "La Defense" where you can swich to metro or other buses. Overall you take about 20-30 minutes from the hotel to the Louvre, for example.
Basic hotel which would be decent except for staff not being particularly friendly, as well as having my mobile phone charger stolen from my room. I did not feel comfortable dining alone in the restaurant as it was full of men (probably just my bad luck but nonetheless).
The room was um compact, with two narrow single beds. (Pet hate: the beds are on highly mobile casters.) The room comes with tea/coffee-making stuff. Loads of reliable hot water in the good sized-shower. They were very obliging about letting me my room late (until 13:00). Good but not exceptional buffet breakfast (is it really so difficult to provide hot meat dishes? Bacon or sausage?) Private but open parking immediately alongside the hotel. Easy access to the motorway.
