I would recommend Open Office, too. In my Opinion it is most similar to Microsoft Office.

Also avaliable as portable version, which can be very usefull:
OpenOffice.org Portable | PortableApps.com

I would recommend Libre Office, Open Office versions are not being continued anymore, and I believe it also requires Java
