We stayed at the Mercure Paris Velizy hotel last weekend and booked our room after reading the reviews on TA.
Firstly what I think is so important, if your going to take the trouble and write a review for a hotel, rate it for what it is, not what its not. Its crazy to give this hotel a low rate or a bad review if you haven't done the briefest of homework and booked a Paris suburb hotel thinking you were going to be staying on the Champs Elysees!
I've given this Mercure an "Excellent" rating as for its four star rating it hits that mark.
The hotel is situated in the Paris suburb of Velizy which is a 15-20 minute subway ride away from central Paris. The nearest subway station to the hotel is "Pont de Sevres" on Line 9/Yellow. The hotel operate a shuttle service to and from the station which works well, and is only a short 10 minute drive away. Its an "officey" area, with a shopping centre a few minutes walk away from the hotel itself and pretty quiet. Its not a downtown area.
Our room was spacious and comfortable. The TV in the room had a number of English language channels, which was a great plus for the kids in the evening when we were back in the hotel. The pool is not massive but fine for the few times that we went for a dip and splash around.
Breakfast was superb and a combination of both cooked and "continental" selections. Cakes, various patisseries, scrambled eggs, bacon, God I'm getting hungry now, it really was very good and it definitely set us up for the long days wandering around Paris that we had.
The Reception staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and welcoming.
A good four star hotel which is situated a short subway ride away from central Paris.
