The hotel is located in the Accor Hotel Tower Block some 6 km from CDG airport. The complex is not beautiful—in fact its polished industrial profile resembles that of a factory. It is served by a shuttle, the so-called “White Bus,” which comes every twenty minutes or so unless stranded in an airport bottleneck. We arrived late owing to said bottleneck. But the concierge processed our arrival (and that of six others all off the same bus) cordially and efficiently. Within minutes we were in our room which was Spartan but exceptionally clean. The mattress looked new and proved agreeably firm. A bunk over the double bed would have made the room suitable for three (possibly four if two were small children). No surcharge for Wi-Fi and the signal was strong. We got a very good price on our room, partly because we booked three months in advance. True, the hallway conjures images of cell blocks and each detail in the room reflects a utilitarianism gone a little mad. The hotel is a machine for spending the night before the transcontinental flight. Still, it’s a functional machine, and having enjoyed a beer at the Novotel bar (one door down) we slept well. Rather than run the air conditioner we left the window ajar. That meant, beginning around 5:30, airplanes flew through the room, or so it sounded, but you can’t check into an airport hotel and not expect to hear aircraft. There’s nothing to do in the wasteland bordering an international airport so it would not have made sense to pay any more (we could certainly have paid a whole lot more) to spend the night at the Novotel or Ibis. The breakfast, at just under 6 euro, was a bargain. Before our next flight from CDG we will definitely stay here again.
