“An unexpected delight.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

There must be 50 hotels at CDG, all 4-6 storeys and similar architecture. I chose Golden Tulip because I read some decent reviews and the price was right. I stayed five nights to do some business in Paris before going to Berlin, so I have had a thorough look at this hotel.

Although physically like the others, this is a little gem of a hotel. It's not luxurious but it's beautifully managed, meticulously clean, not shopworn and perfectly maintained. The rooms are well equipped and quiet, considering all the aviation going on around the hotel. Sparkling bathroom, fluffy white towels and crisp white sheets on a comfortable bed.

There is a friendly bar just off the lobby and a restaurant that features a cold buffet with perfectly fresh raw and cooked seafood. There is a hot buffet which I did not try. Or you can order off the a la carte menu. The staff in the restaurant are mainly young people who are superbly trained. Sensing my halting French, they were eager to serve me in English. I like omelets and the chef is a master at producing an exquisitely seasoned, light, fluffy omelette with a cone of delicious (Belgian) fries and a mesclun salad with slivers of cheese and just the right amount of dressing.

This hotel distinguishes itself from the others by its well-trained, sincere and attentive staff.

It's true the hotel is in a complex of several hotels, but just walk 10 min and you are in the typical French village of Roissy, with its Casino and Carrefour mini-markets, patisserie, pharmacy and cluster of local bistros and bars. In the park surrounding City Hall (Le Mairie), there was a display of great photographs outdoors that made a stroll in the park feel really special.

Last of all, don't diss The Black Bus. It is free, frequent and convenient. Go to the train station. From the level of the Sheraton, go to the back of the building near "Paul" fast (French) food stand and climb the stairs or take the elevator to the 5th floor, cross the drive and wait. Several buses serve this bus station. Look for the bus with Golden Tulip Hotel (among others) clearly written on the outside and on the illuminated banner on the front of the bus. The buses run 3 times an hour but sometimes traffic delays them. First stop is Terminal 1, then it goes to a hotel complex that is very compact. 4th stop is Golden Tulip and Campanile. It deposits you right in front of the hotel. You can use this free bus to go to the airport and the train station, it runs from early morning until late at night.

Booked on hotels.com on basis of reviews. One night stop for business - Sunday evening with a 10pm arrival. Used a cab after all the bad reviews of the black bus, but took the bus to the airport next morning and it was empty and prompt, and only stopped once en route. Receptionist was "in training" but was charming and helpful, with careful/accurate English. Early access granted to gym (why do business hotels have gyms that don't open until 9am?). Room OK, a bit worn but generally clean. Tried the buffet which, by that time, was a little "tired". I wasn't brave enough to try seafood when the dips and pates around it had developed a bit of a crust! What I had was fine though, and I'm still alive... Gym was small, and if you're over 6ft you'd hit your head whilst using the running machine.

Breakfast was OK (though expensive). Hotel was reasonable value at EUR72, plus EUR21 for buffet and 17 for breakfast. Wifi was free and quick.

Generally OK....in a not very memorable sort of way....

Last night after nearly 3 months in Europe. Cost was 72 euro and as it included the bus to and from CDG airport it was good value. This hotel is in an area that it just hotels.

The room and bathroom were basic but more than adequate.
The price did not include breakfast which we got at the airport whilst waiting for our flight.

At night we ate at the hotel although I am not sure if there are any eating places nearby. We had a cold selection buffet for 21 euro each. A hot selection was a little more.

Nice property near CDG, nice clean rooms. Staff at front desk friendly, F & B a little different. Just wanted to order dinner (buffet) and eat it in the bar and watch the sports (Olympics) on the TV. This was a definite no, no as you were only allowed to order from a very, very limited bar menu. Sometimes hotel staff forget a little bit does go along way. Breakfast very good, but very over priced.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

When travelling, we normally stayed at famous hotels, but this time we decided to venture and try a local establishment near CDG.
We stayed there for 3 nights. The room was not too big, but not too small either. Just a nice size with functional equipment. Suitable for 2 people (max). If you travel with younger family members, you may need to book a bigger room.

Good points:
- Free shuttle bus to/from CDG airport (tips: catch this bus from level 5 at CDG, above Sheraton Hotel. Mind you, there's no queue at the shuttle bus stop. So first comes first served. But it's not the hotel's fault; the management of CDG must sort this problem out).
- Free wifi (we just arrived from London whereby internet access/ wifi was not free. It's Euro10-Euro 20/ night. So having free internet access at Golden Tulip was really great!)
- Nice, clean & modern bathroom. Basic toiletries & slippers are provided.
- Mini bar had DIY instant coffee & hot choco (incl. to-go cups).
- It provided in-room safe deposit box. It is very spacious that we could store our 17" notebook and some other documents.
- Staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. We didn't speak French and front office staff tried to answer our queries in English patiently (I guess when you ask politely, people tend to respond to you in a more positive manner).

The only downside is there's no fridge in the room.

It's value for money and we may stay here again when we're in Paris.

This is a very good hotel near the airport - I got a voucher from KLM/Air France due to changes in m flight schedule. The hotel is modern and welcoming. The room is updated and the bathroom as well, with a nice modern flat screen TV. It was a quiet night in a comfortable bed. The dinner is a buffet style, very good. .Breakfast is a buffet style as well, I thought it was even better than the dinner with an excellent choice of food.
The negative side - heating was not working in my room, I asked for help and did not get it, so I had to sleep at 18oC, when the comfortable temperature is around 22oC. Because the proximity with the airport, people is always in a hurry and the reception can not keep up with the amount of people trying to check in/check out.
But the worse is the shuttle service from and to the airport - it is a bus called "navette", which runs completely full, no information at all - the experience of taking that bus was challenging, stressing and not good. If you don't want to experience that, take a taxi and pay 15 euro, it will take you 15 minutes instead of 30 minutes in that torturing bus (plus waiting time on the bus stop at the airport).

Room Tip: check if heating is working on your room avoid the shuttle bus (navette in French) - take a taxi in...

Clean, modern place with good rooms and foyer. Expensive for a near-airport location (we were there during a near-by trade show), and ridiculously expensive breakfast. Computer was down for our entire stay, could not pay in cash but had to leave a credit card information to be charged, which was not my intention (hence service rates a 3). Good shuttle service to the hotel, but be aware, the shuttle does not stop directly in front of the hotel entrance, instead it discharges and loads at the adjacent Campanile hotel, which caused some confusion, as there was no sign at the hotel entrance, instead there was a hard-to-spot sign at the Campanile. Easy walk to the quaint Roissy village where reasonably good drinks and food were available.
