Hotel Roundup – Hotels near Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris

Jump to last reply

Say you have an early flight out of Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris, and want to be at or near the airport the night before.

Or perhaps you have been visiting the French countryside and you want to avoid going into Paris to spend your last night, then having to ge to the airport the next morning for your flight home.

Here is a list of airport-area lodging options. In some cases I have stayed at these hotels over the years; in others, I have no personal experience but believe them to be valid options for your last night in France.

I've divided them into three categories:

1. Hotels at the airport
2. Hotels nearby
3. Hotels more distant but offering something unusual/special
N.B. – Prices referenced below range from the simplest single to the most expensive double (excluding suites), and should be considered as guidelines only. Also note: This is not a complete list of hotels, only some that have come to my attention. I hope other Fodorites will add to this list with their favorites.


A. The ultimate, in-terminal, expensive airport hotel.

Rooms $200-$500
I have not stayed here. Very convenient for flights from Terminal 2A-B-C-D-E-F-G, although you will have to take CDG's automated rail system (CDGVAL) to Terminal 1 (departure point for many international flights) or Terminal 3 (budget airlines).

B. Three hotels conveniently on the airport grounds (at Roissypôle, which lies between Terminals 1 and 2 and is accessed via the automated rail line CDGVAL):

Rooms 100-200€
I have stayed here. This is convenient to all terminals but the price has been creeping up in recent years. Expect to pay between 100 and 200 euros for a double, with breakfast extra. The Novotel is a comfortable, business-style hotel with no surprises. It has a restaurant. To arrive here, you'll have to walk from Terminal 3 (about 10 minutes) or take the automated CDG rail system, CDGVAL, to the Roissypôle stop (also where you find the RER rail station for central Paris) from Terminals 1 and 2.
N.B. – There are at least two other Novotels, the Novotel Convention and Wellness Centre and the Suite Novotel Paris Roissy CDG, in the vicinity. These are accessed by shuttle buses, not via the CDGVAL.

Rooms 111-260€
I have not stayed here. Friends who have said it is comfortable and predictable. To arrive here, you have the choice of a Hilton shuttle bus from Terminal 2 (ask the hotel for info) or you can use the automated CDG rail system, CDGVAL, to the Roissypôle stop (also where you find the RER rail station for central Paris) from Terminals 1 and 2. You also can walk to the Hilton from Terminal 3.

Rooms 50-130€
I have stayed here. It is as convenient as the two above hotels, but rooms are far smaller (and cheaper, around 50-130 euros) and more spartan, the lobby is often chaotic with people trying to check in and out, and the last time I was there, the "restaurant" featured frozen foods that you microwave. You can, of course, walk to the nearby Novotel and eat in their restaurant. To arrive here, you'll have to walk from Terminal 3 (about 10 minutes) or take the automated CDG rail system, CDGVAL, to the Roissypôle stop (also where you find the RER rail station for central Paris) from Terminals 1 and 2.


A. Hotels in Roissy-en-France, about 10 minutes west of CDG in a small village (boasting some French village charm, and featuring a few cafes and restaurants for those who don't want to dine in a hotel restaurant).
These are accessed via shuttle bus from one or more pickup points at CDG. When booking, ask about how to hook up with shuttle service (which is free). Guests who have stayed at these hotels over the years have reported varied experiences in finding the shuttle buses, and accessing the airport in the morning from the hotel via shuttle. Many report a smooth experience; others had problems.

For a rundown on various shuttle buses that access hotels in Roissy-en-France, see the following (info may be out of date, so check with your specific hotel):

Hotel All Seasons Paris Roissy CDG

B. Hotels in Le Mesnil-Amelot, about 15 minutes east of CDG in a small village. I have driven through the village; there is little here but the hotels (no cafes-restaurants, no charm):

Radisson Blu
Rooms 90-250€
Le Mesnil Amelot's luxury hotel is the Radisson Blu.

Comfort Hotel
Rooms about 75€
Only a few steps from the center of the village.

Campanile Hotel
Rooms 50-150€
Just on the outskirts of the village, the Campanile is also reached by a shuttle bus.


A. A simple hotel with a country feel and (paid) shuttle service, in Le Thillay (15 minutes southwest of CDG)
Rooms about 50-90 €
I have not stayed here. People who have liked it, and the price is good – about 50-90€, breakfast an extra 6.5 euros pp. There is enclosed parking (8 €/day), but guests say there is free parking on the street, so it's ideal for people with a car to turn in the next morning at CDG. There is a restaurant (closed Saturday lunch and closed Sunday). Hotel website references a paid shuttle service to CDG (takes 15 minutes, costs 10 euros daytime/evening, 20 euros after 11 p.m.). My advice is to verify upon reservation that the shuttle will be available, then verify again a couple of times, including at check-in. My sense is that you would be best off having some ability with the French language.

B. A country B&B with arranged (paid) transport to CDG, located near the village of Mauregard, northeast of CDG
TripAdvisor reviews:
Rooms 65-80€, breakfast included.
I have not stayed here. This is a 5-room B&B that guests call rustic, charming and clean, with a pretty garden. According to the website, table d'hôte dinners (25 euros) are available with two-day notice. Washing of laundry is also available. A paid transfer service (reported to cost 15 euros) is offered to CDG. This would be very convenient for anyone with a car. If you need to rely on the transfer service, my advice is to verify upon reservation that the transfer will be available, then verify again a couple of times, including at check-in. My sense is that you would be best off having some ability with the French language.

C. A comfortable, atmospheric former hunting lodge 30 minutes north of CDG, just south of Chantilly.
Rooms around 128-192€, breakfast included
I have stayed here several times. It is a very comfortable, country hotel in a former hunting lodge from the 19th century. Rooms are fairly spacious and well appointed. The restaurant is quite good. It takes me about 30-45 minutes to drive from here to CDG, but traffic problems could increase this time a lot. My sense is that a taxi would be quite expensive, so it is best for people with a car.

D. A simple, 2* hotel 30 minutes north of CDG
Rooms 62-70€, breakfast 9€ extra
I have stayed here. The hotel is adjacent to the suburban train station at Coye-la-Forêt, making it accessible by RER from/to Paris. No CDG shuttle – it would be a good choice for someone with a car. Taxis to CDG might be expensive (40-50 euros). It might also be possible to access CDG via the RER rail line; when booking, ask the hotel about this. Guests note there is a simple bar-brasserie near the hotel but no true restaurant; for that you have to go 2 km. into Orry-la-Ville. Rooms described as small but good value for money. No elevator.

E. Luxurious château about 30-40 minutes from the airport
Rooms 188-1,000€, breakfast extra. (Lowest-price rooms must be reserved and paid for in advance, no cancellations. Highest-priced rooms are prestige – truly luxurious)
I have stayed here twice. This is a charming château-hotel in the country, with a range of room sizes and prices. There is a good restaurant of high standing. Features a wellness center with indoor pool, sauna and massage. If you have breakfast here, order the scrambled eggs –guaranteed the best you have ever tasted.

F. A sweet country hotel 1 hour northeast of CDG (car necessary)
Rooms about 65€, breakfast extra.
I have stayed here. This is a top choice for someone arriving by car from the north or east of Paris, and who wishes a French country experience for his/her last night in France. Your flight should leave around noon or later in order to be comfortable getting to the airport on time. Rooms are scattered among several stone buildings in a former flour mill. Rooms are one or two flights up – no elevator! Many rooms feature beamed ceilings and antique furnishings.The grounds are beautiful, with flowers everywhere. Features a good restaurant, although choice on the menus is limited – stick to à la carte.
