My partner and I decided on this particular hotel as part of an easyjet holiday package. It was our first trip to Paris and without any knowledge of the Paris area we made our decision on reviews similiar to this. To begin with, a really good tip for those who are travelling to Paris for the first time(as we were). On arrival at the CDG airport and after collecting bags, if you follow the signs indicating the metro/train station you will come across an information desk. Here you can buy a metro pass, which in our case because we were there for 4 days we purchased a 5 day pass. For the 5 day pass we payed approx. 50 euro each which was fantastic value considering a single ticket would have cost approx 8-9 euro(and we would have used the metro 10+ times during our stay). The pass also gave us access to the outer zones of the city including a trip to disneyland and surrounding areas. At the information desk you can also ask about the accommodation you have organised and the staff will quite happily print off a map and point you in the right direction. From there its a short walk to the airport metro station where you place your ticket in the machine positioned next to the gates which let you through the the main station platform.
The trip on the metro with one change of trains along the way took around an hour with us getting off at the Alesia station.
From the Alesia station it is about a 10-15min walk to the hotel and is very easy to find. Along the way there is a great selection of bakerys and patisseries and right next to the hotel itself is a small supermarket with all the basics.
On entering the hotel we were met at reception by a very friendly member of staff who quickly confirmed our booking and gave us all the relevant information we needed. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the street below. We had absolutely no problem with being on the road frontage as the neighborhood was very quiet and we had no noise issues throughout our stay. The room was a spacious self contained apartment style setup with a well equipped kitchenette. It also had separate bathroom and toilet. It had a double sofabed in the lounge area which was easy to interchange between sofa and bed and was also very comfortable in both situations.
During our 3 night stay we did not get back to the hotel before midnight any of the nights. At no stage did we ever feel unsafe walking from the train station to the hotel in the early hours of the morning and were surprised at how quiet the area was at night.
Overall we had a great stay at the citadines didot alesia with it offering all the basics we required and its relative close proximity to the metro.
