“Basic and Tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Set your expectations low with this property and you'll be fine. Be realistic - you're staying at an airport hotel in a town that has a strip of a dozen lodging properties to accommodate delayed or early-morning travellers who (wisely) don't want the expense of a taxi from the city or the unreliability of the RER B train the morning of their departure.

Check In
Quick. Pleasant. Informative. Given map of the area and bus timetable with helpful hints on how best to go to/from CDG.

Common Areas
The lobby is basic but the age of the Mercure shows in the hallways. Dim yellowed lights. Filthy carpet. Depressing walk to your room. Elevators that bang and creak, and the dank smell of tobacco is everywhere (it's France, what do you expect?)

Room
Basic. Window that opens. Fridge. The low-rise bed was well used. Not exactly comfortable but not painful, either. Thin blanket and sheets. Clean. Kettle and instant coffee/tea tray. Work table with one chair. TV. The room reeked of disinfectant that eventually dissipated after opening the window.

Bathroom
Spotless. Excellent hot water. Sufficient towels. Of course, the ubiquitous glass half-panel French shower door is still a mystery to me - water goes everywhere.

Internet
Free if you select the correct plan from the Orange WiFi network. Do not use the cable - there is a fee for the cable connection.

Service
An iron and board (tiny) was brought to my room within 5 minutes of the request.

Breakfast
Not worth the EUR18. Buffet style but you can order cooked items. Wait staff circulates with coffee pots. Very attentive and friendly. But the food is basic - 2 types of cheese, 2 types of yogurt, croissants, toast, tinned fruit salad and 3 kinds of cereal (bulk.) Hot dishes are limited to fatty bacon, powered eggs (with absolutely no flavour) and dry pancakes. Avoid.

Transfer
You book the Mercure knowing that you're staying in Roissy-en-France. You're near the airport but not at the airport. The bus goes every 20 minutes. From the hotel to CDG is fast but the travel time from CDG to the hotel depends on where you board the shuttle. From Roissypole, you'll stop first at the Air France Operations Center and then make the loop around the entire T2 complex, stopping at the train station (top floor) before finally heading out to the hotel. It seems to take forever.

Would I stay again? No. The Ibis at CDG Roissypole has a new wing and renovated rooms with hard wood floors, tiled bathrooms, updated decor and free WiFi. The hotel is on the CDGVAL line so it's convenient to all terminals. Several resonable (even cheap) dining options with decent food and super friendly staff. And it's at least 25% cheaper than the Mercure.

We stayed here for the first (and last) time two weeks ago for one night. We normally stay at the other Accor Hotel called Novotel Wellness Center down the road but the air show in town had made the prices ridiculous there...so we decided to try this one.

So, the French Country Restaurant was a big selling point for us...our last night in France, a nice meal and wine before the hassles of airplane travel the next day sounded wonderful. What a HUGE disappointment. The menu is all a la carte, very pricey for what you get, and the ambiance and service was not at all the calibre they should have been. We named our waitress Madame Ice Queen...and we speak French. The restaurant itself felt like an Appleby's that had tried to make itself more upscale. We were the first to arrive and were seated at the very back of the restaurant, where I had a lovely view of coat racks in the banquet room next door. Charming. The food was good, not great...when we were told they have a 'star' I thought, well, I guess everything is for sale now.

The room was ok. lighting good for reading and the bath was a decent size. The hallways, elevators, lobby are all dated with beat up door frames and really dirty carpeting with spots and spills left over the years up and down the hall. It felt dingy.

The breakfast was adequate.

Bottom line - if this is the only hotel left with a room and we are in a bind, I'd stay here again. Otherwise, I'd do everything I can to stay at the Novotel Wellness Center, which though pricier at times, is light and airy and has a better restaurant and staff.

Stayed in the city for 3 nights and decided to stay near the airport on our last night due to an early flight. We were actually booked at "another" hotel (horrible experience at check-in) but ended up in this hotel, MERCURE, and we were so glad we did! The front desk staff, at least 3 of the 4 we've actually talked to were nice, warm, friendly and helpful. The breakfast had great selection, food wass good and again staff at the breakfast room were nice, friendly and helpful. Our room was big, clean and smelled good! It almost made us feel like we were close to home. Shuttle bus was always on time which made the trip to the city so easy. We will definitely stay here again.

Probably not. I happened to be lodged here as a forced stopover in Paris because of a missed connection due to a cancelled flight. Got to the hotel late at night together with many other travellers who had suffered the same fate as us, only to be met by a rather bored (to say the least) reception staff who could not even pretend to be polite (they must have figured that since we were there out of someone else's choiche there was little point making an effort to please us, as we would hardly come back).
Rooms were rather basic, but seemed to be quite clean at least.
Left very early the next morning, but had time to check out their breakfast: buffet was not particularly plentiful, but had reasonable choice of both sweet and savoury options.
Altogether an average hotel, although well connected with the terminals, but then the area is full of hotels, and most likely there are better ones too.

Just an overnight stop and pleased to say peaceful despite the runway being not that far away so obviously the glazing works! Lovely to have a kettle to make a drink and a good comfy bed. Part of a tour group and shuttled into a side room for breakfast which was rather poor and less choice than the one for individuals. Our tour company and us had paid for porterage, but some on our tour had to chase up their luggage which had been abandoned in the lobby. Staff too busy chasing the "first class" passengers to even acknowledge our existence even when greeted! Come on, good manners costs nothing!

...to the early morning arrival after 24 hours from Melbourne to Paris and a mid afternoon onward flight and the bad feeling that all that creates.
For 68 euro, we got a nice, clean room for the day, a decent breakfast, perfect attention from the front desk staff who organized a taxi to Orly, printed boarding passes and generally behaved as if we were high paying , long-term guests.
It was a tremendous help and we emerged feeling good again.
