Rating by category:
The room was comfortable _once_ we worked out that the bed could be converted into a sofa (very crowded in the room otherwise). Very comfortable for a sofa bed. The availability of on-site laundry facilities was very helpful.
The information was poor, verging on misleading. It wasn't clear until we arrived that this was essentially a high-grade student residence offering some short-term stays. This was a bit of a surprise on arrival, but quite pleasant once we got used to it. Given how it was advertised, we believe it was unacceptable that there was no kettle or other tea/coffee-making facilities. This is a normal provision in such places; its unavailability needs to be disclosed. The residence advertises wifi connection in every room. When we arrived, despite having booked for a couple, we found that there was only one wifi login available per room. Given that there is a high likelihood of bookings coming from business/academic couples (i.e. a dual connection being essential, as it was for us), in my view this is misleading. It's also a completely unnecessary inconvenience - if they have the internet connection, allowing multiple connections from the one room costs nothing. We were fortunate that an accommodating staff member was able to bend the rules, but it is the policy that needs fixing. Also not noted is that if you want to stay in the beautiful converted farm building shown on the website, you need to email a special request after booking (most rooms are in a comfortable modern building). Staff varied from the enthusiastically helpful to the surly unhelpful (the latter appeared to be student-workers whose studies we were interrupting). I could only recommend this location to friends with warnings (once the information is made more accurate, I would give a quite strong recommendation).
Receptionist (first evening) did not speak English at all. Because of that they woke me up much earlier. The breakfast was OK (middle), but the waiter was quite lazy.
Nice cosy place, very clean comfortable room with well equipped kitchen; friendly and thoughtful personnel; next to University Paris XI, 10 minutes to Bure-sur-Yvette railway station, half an hour to Paris.
The rooms are clean and spacious.
It is about 15 minutes from the RER station. There are not many restaurants in Bures sur Yvette
Excellent apartment hotel with electric stove, microwave oven, refridgerator. The environment is very nice.
The hotel only clean the room and change towers/bedsheet once every week, which is not fair for people who stay in less than 4 days with higher rate.
Location for access to the University campus in Orsay
awful Wi-Fi Internet
A bit remote and taxi was a bit delayed.
Just 2kms away from Supelec university. I loved walking up hills. Facilities are very good when you want to cook for your self. Staff people are really good.
For people who don't want to walk the RER stations are at the distance of 15-20 minutes walk. Break fast is bad for the money you pay.
Not a lot but was clean . Breakfast too many people not large enough dining area . No bar . No tea and coffee facilities in room . No local shop to buy food for room . Ok for basic nights sleep.
everything was perfect! No restaurant but food delivery....chinese,japanese, Italian...Brilliant!
the power of the shower is a little bit to weak
modern, quite, and warm.
cleaning the room is made only once a week.
The location, the price, the convenience of having a kitchenette
It was very quiet and nice, nice breakfast buffet, nice people.
It is quite unconfortable to reach if you don't know the region. In particular, in the night you have to walk through a place without any light, this is not good.
The hotel is quite standard and comfortable but it was really hard to get to it. The location is just above the plateau of Saclay, in the university campus and there's only one way to go to the hotel and it is crossing the forest in complete darkness.
The room had basic kitchen facilities and food could be ordered in, which was just as well because it's a bit off the beaten track.
It wasn't clear just what the 'hotel' was. I picked it for apparent location as a quick bed for the night on a drive from the South of France to the Tunnel. But it felt like Halls of Residence as it sits just off a University campus and thank goodness for SatNav! The room was basic but OK - think Travelodge- but the bed was a fold-out settee, which was not the most comfortable. The place was noisy until late into the night. My yes recommendation comes with some reservations.
