, another contemporary hotel brand, Okko Hotels, is preparing to open in the La Défense business district on June 1. This fourth address in the Paris region – after Rueil-Malmaison and the Porte de Versailles and Gare de l’Est in Paris intra muros – will be located opposite La Défense Arena and in the immediate vicinity of the future Nanterre La Folie RER station.

Designed by Studio Catoir like all the new generation of Okko hotels, the hotel offers travelers 184 rooms and a Club, the signature offer of this lifestyle brand. Located on the second floor, it is extended by an open-air terrace. But the hotel is also distinguished by a space dedicated to meetings with three rooms, all with a terrace and able to accommodate up to 70 people.

The Okko La Défense will feature a wellness dimension, with a fitness area equipped with a sauna and a yoga and pilates room, and above all the presence of a restaurant on the first floor, a first for the group. Completely independent and open six days a week, the Noccio offers 110 seats to hotel guests, but also to employees of companies in the area and to people coming to a show or a match at the Arena. On the menu: antipasti and revisited classics of Italian gastronomy.
