My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Paris CDG Airport for 3 nights as part of an organised coach tour (Leger Holidays) to see the finale of the Tour de France 2014.
We arrived late in the evening (around 9pm) but were informed that the coach drivers had phoned ahead to let them know that there was a coach-load of hungry Brits turning up. You'd have thought, therefore that they'd have been a little prepared... Unfortunately not.
Evening meals and breakfasts were so dis-organised, with food running out and not being replaced. There were no trays to carry your juice, coffee, and plate to the dining room, and breakfast was served in a long thin corridor that made it difficult to fight your way against the tide of hungry customers to get to your table.
To be fair, on our last day, breakfast was much better, but our coach was allocated the first breakfast slot (06:45) so there was lots of everything available. Every morning should have been like this, though.
So - enough of the food.
The room itself was large and comfortable, with quiet air conditioning and good double-glazing (we couldn't hear the constant stream of jets taking off / landing at the airport next to the hotel with the windows closed). The beds were EXCELLENT and extremely comfortable. The bedding was immaculately presented each day, and the room kept very clean.
Other facilities included a digital lock safe, good-sized fridge, tea and coffee-making equipment, flat screen TV (there were a couple of English channels), comfy chairs etc. Our bathroom had a full-sized bath and shower attachment, and showergel and handwash, although no soap, or shampoo etc (take your own !).
The lifts were a bit confusing - you need to use your room key to activate the lift to go UP, but you can return to the lobby without your key. The were also very slow. DO NOT use the stairwell... the doors are alarmed and you get a stroppy Frenchman shouting at you for attempting to use the stairs.
Overall, the hotel was OK, but they REALLY need to sort out the eating arrangements. The main restaurant appeared to be closed the whole time we were there, with customers directed to the breakfast room for evening meals. There is a great pizza place a ten-minute walk away in the Roissy-en-France village if you don't want to pay hotel rates for food.
We weren't there for the hotel experience, and as somewhere to sleep I can't really fault it - comfortable and quiet... but eat somewhere else and be prepared to faff about with waiting for the lift.
