We flew into Paris from Cairo and needed to spend two nights at the airport. We had an 8:25 am departure, so it was imperative that we be on the airport grounds. The Ibis CDG fit the bill perfectly.
We arrived at around 12:00 and were able to check in immediately and go to our rooms. The rooms are institutional and without charm, but are perfectly organized and spotlessly clean. The bed is comfortable with a very nice duvet. The bathroom is small and the shower a bit tight, but it has a great shower head and very hot water.
As far as I could tell, there is no air conditioning in the rooms, a factor that should be kept in mind for a summer arrival. We were not able to control the heat/ventilation, so slept with the window slightly ajar, and the sounds of the airplanes taking off and landing did get annoying. If we were staying longer I would have spoken to someone about how to control the temperature better.
We bought sandwiches one evening in the little self-serve area downstairs. Other than that we didn't use any of the dining facilities on site.
This was the easiest place to get to! We arrived in terminal 2, hopped on the CDGVAL shuttle, hopped off at the second stop and the hotel was right there. It is also right on top of the the RER line, so getting into the city was a breeze. We bought the Paris Visite tickets that allowed us unlimited rides on all public transportation. It was only 1E50 more than the regular RER tickets and was a great deal for our visiting throughout the city.
There was a sign outside the IBIS that said that rooms could be rented on an hourly basis...I believe at 12E an hour. When faced with a five or six hour layover, this would be an ideal place to come for a nap and a shower or a quick meal, all at a reasonable price.
All in all, I would heartily recommend this hotel for the traveler who wants the convenience of an airport hotel at a very reasonable price.
