Sofitel La Defense is situated a 15-minute Metro ride from the centre of Paris. The service is everything that you would hope for from a 5-star hotel. Compared with similar accommodation in the city centre, it is cheaper, and the rooms are bigger. It is quiter at nice and nice to get away from the city centre. The La Defense area is also of interest and there is a big shopping centre, bars and restaurants etc within easy walking distance. Recommended.
