We booked this hotel on ebookers after arriving at CDG and finding all nearby hotels full. We paid in advance, yet when we arrived they had no room available for us. After calling around at our insistence, they found us another hotel at twice the price. Arguing with the receptionist did no good. Finally, another guest who was helping us with the translation offered to share her room with us. The receptionist was so relieved she agreed to this arrangement and even located a mattress for the one of us that had to sleep on the floor.
As if that wasn't bad enough, the next morning the taxi we had asked the hotel to book showed up 30 minutes late and we were told to share with another couple who had also asked the hotel to organize a taxi the night before. Unfortunately for this couple, their taxi - which was to have come before ours - had never showed up and they probably missed their flight. I don't know how much of this is the hotel's fault but the inconvenient location in Goussainville probably contributed.
Further, there is no convenient transportation from CDG to Goussainville (note: naming the hotel Median Roissy CDG Airport does not make this hotel in Roissy), at least not at the time of night we arrived. No one at the airport could advise us how to get there by public transportation (in the end, we rode an employee shuttle bus to get there, after the bus driver took pity on us - which made it especially maddening when after all that trouble there wasn't even a room available!). A taxi is 25-30 euros each way, so if the goal is an inexpensive night, the cost of transport doubles the price.
The room itself was a bit scruffy but that is to be expected for the price. However, not being able to rely on a prebooked room being available is inexcusable. I would advise other travelers to avoid this hotel if there is any other option available.
