Located 10 km from Fointainebleau and 55.5 km South Est of Paris, the Novotel Fontainebleau was a fantastic hotel to stopped at when attending a family wedding this summer. The hotel is a bit secluded which make it the ideal property for all Parisians wishing to escape the big city for the weekend.
We were nicely welcomed by the Receptionist who kindly explained how to connect to the WIFI – complimentary. I don’t know about you but I cannot live without WIFI !!
We stayed in a Executive Double Room featuring all modernity expected in a 4* hotel such as a Novotel : WIFI, safe, Nespresso machine and tea facilities, mini bar, bathrobes and sleepers.
Our room was facing the pool which I absolutely loved. The A/C in the room was not too loud which was a bonus as that weekend was one of the hottest of the year !!
The pool is part of a well being concept at the Novotel Fontainebleau which features : Sauna, Solarium, Fitness centre, massage, spa tennis court, table tennis,…
I was pleasantly surprised to find much more toiletries in the bathroom than I normally do in most hotel. It was ideal for me to get ready before the wedding with lots of mirrors and lights.
I did not have the opportunity to lunch by the pool but I sampled the Room Service menu and it was really impressive, our food arrived right on time, well presented, the steak was cooked to perfection and the food hot : a big 20/20 marks !
The only downfall : My room was located on the 1st floor – sadly no lift and nobody offered to help me carry the luggage upstairs 😦
I would definitely recommend the Novotel Fontainebleau to all Parisians but as well people travelling through France in need of a comfortable and welcoming hotel to break before driving off !
A special thank you to the Novotel Fontainebleau for upgraded me to an Executive Room.
1 night stay including breakfast for 2 pax on 27.07.13 : 115.00 euro as advance purchase.
