After reading so many negative reviews about this hotel, I was somewhat hesitant but arrangements had already been made for a 4-night stay. The complimentary shuttle bus from CDG was quite a walk from Terminal 2A and after several confusing signs, we arrived at the designated train station stop only to find out that the shuttle buses are on the 5th floor.
The hotel itself doesn't look at all like the professional photos on their website. Yes, the hotel is dated, carpets are stained, hallways are musty and rooms are small with old furniture. However, there are quite a few pluses. Our room was very clean, with spotless white sheeting on the bed, a clean bathroom with the usual amenities, AC worked fine, our room 257 had no view but was super quiet. You could see the aircraft flying above but you couldn't hear them. Breakfast was not included in the rate but the village of Roissy is located within a 10 minute walk from the hotel and you can find several small grocery stores. Our room also had a convenient small fridge and coffeemaker with supplies, free in-room wi-fi and a TV that worked, however there is no clock anywhere in the room, not even on the TV.
Since we were there for 4 days, we thought getting to downtown Paris would be a chore but the hotel provided a comfortable daily shuttle bus leaving at 10:30am sharp to their sister hotel, The Millennium Opera and returned at 8:00pm. It takes about 40 minutes. They charge you 5Eu. each way but we only bought a one-way ticket and the return was free because the Millennium Opera doesn't charge you for going back. And that's a great saving compared to the alternative of taking the complimentary shuttle bus back to CDG and then taking the RER into the city which costs 9.50Eu each way. The hotel also offers another complimentary shuttle bus to Aeroville Shopping Center (approx 15 minutes away). It is an indoor mall with a huge selection of brands and products. There are several departures each day. Ask the front desk.
The only hotel staff we wanted to deal with was Miguel who went out of his way to be helpful. He is fluent in English, French and Spanish and is knowledgeable and courteous.
Overall, it was not a bad experience. But I would only consider staying there for one or two nights.
