On a return visit
first visit back in November 2005, going back again this March. Super place to stay, staff were ever so friendly. felt like home from home.
Great location for Paris & Disney
Having just returned from a 4 day stay at the Tulip Inn, I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it. Getting to and from Disneyland couldnt be easier - 2 stops on the RER trainline and the train station is literally 2 minutes walk from the hotel. 20-25 minutes in the opposite direction and you are in the heart of Paris.
We paid 300 euros for a triple room for 4 nights, well below the advertised nightly rates. Breakfast was great value and included in our deal with active hotels. Purchased on its own, it was 10 euros per person so we definitely got a bargain!
The hotel and surrounding area was very clean and I have absolutely no complaints about the service.
Top tip would be to purchase a Paris Visite travel ticket if you're planning on doing the tourist sites. All train, metro and bus travel is included. An absolute energy saver when your weary legs are letting you down:-)
Excellant choice for exploring Paris
We stayed here for a long weekend in Paris for our First Wedding Anniversary. The hotel was very good and we really recommend it. The rooms are quite large and were clean. The breakfast was excellant value. we paid 5 euro each. The evening meals were nice as well. The only thing to be aware of is that the restaurant closes at the weekend. There is not a great deal of choice of eating places outside the hotel, so best to eat before you go back there. Very close to the station and easy to find. Staff very very helpful. Overall this is a good place to stay.
Clean, Convenient, just like a Travelodge
We booked our stay via lastminute - £118 for a quad room for two nights. Myself, my partner and our two 13 year olds. My partner and I have restricted mobility and we were unable to find a flat access point to reception (we found the entrance later that evening round the back of the hotel). The reception was unmanned when we arrived and we had to go and look for a member of staff. We were advised that the hotel has private secure parking in the underground parking which cost €7 a night. We were not sure how secure the parking was as the keycard system to access the secure area was inoperative and staff monitored the entrance to the secure area with CCTV.
The key-card we were given did not work in the room door and so we had to go back to reception and get the over-ride key for the door. Being used to British and US hotels we were decidedly disappointed at the complete absence of tea/coffee facilities in the room - this was further compounded by the notice in the elevator informing us that it is strictly forbidden to bring food and drink into the hotel.
That is the bad stuff out of the way. The room was very clean, the bathroom facilities were spotless. The curtains completely blacked out the room - this may not seem important until you realise that there were around 8 floodlights no more than 10 metres from the window. The air conditioning was a little noisy but worked a treat. Travel time to Disneyland Resort via the back road was around 10 minutes from the hotel and not the 5 minutes stated by the hotel, using the Autoroute increased this time to 20 minutes, it still makes the hotel an ideal, lower cost alternative to staying in the Resort. Paris city centre is only 25 minutes away using the RER train service - and that includes the 5 minute walk from the hotel to the Bussy-St-George RER station; watch out for the RER ticket prices though, for our family it was cheaper to drive the car in and out and pay for parking. Eating facilities was "extraordinarily" :o) restricted during the weekend we stayed due to a lack of catering staff. This meant that we could only get breakfast at the hotel (do not worry though as there were a few other alternatives open) - breakfast was included in the price of the stay and was very comprehensive, true continental breakfast - baton de pain, jambon et fromage as well as the ubiqitous croissants and even extended to cereal, fresh fruit and yoghurt & honey. We never left the dining room hungry.
In short, if you want clean, convenient, travelodge-like accommodation in Paris area, you cannot go wrong with the Tulip Inn. Tea/coffee facilities and an English language TV channel suitable for children would have made sure of a 5 out of 5 rating.
PS If you use satellite navigation to drive back to the UK via Calais/Eurotunnel then set it to "shortest route" rather than "quickest route", some of the villages and towns are gorgeous and well worth taking a camera for.
Thought the hotel was great!!!!!!
Myself, my wife and our 2 children (girl 11, boy 3), have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Tulip Inn, Bussy St.Georges. The hotel was excellent. Very friendly staff, very clean rooms which were cleaned daily, clean towels (lots of them) daily.
The room we had slept the four of us quite well with a double bed, a 3/4 bed and a single.
We found the continental breakfast very, very adequate, and the evening meals excellent value (can well recommend the pizza).
The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the train station which is 2 stops from the gates of Disney. If going for a few days buy a family weekly train ticket, it will save you a few Euros.
For a friendly, family hotel, close to Disney we can recommend the Tulip Inn, Bussy St Georges.
Perfect base for Disney and Paris
We have just returned from a 5 night trip to the Tulip Inn in Bussy St Georges. This hotel is very good, clean, friendly and ideally situated. Only criticsm that there are no tea/coffee making facilities and the restaurant seems to close at weekends. We had a triple room for my husband, my daughter and myself which was quite spacious. Rooms are cleaned every day. It is a 2 minute walk from the RER station on the A line which takes you 2 stops to Disney or 30 mins to Paris. This is our second trip to Bussey St Georges, and this town is expanding all the time. New restaurants, bars and supermarkets have opened since our last visit, which provide a welcome relief from the expense of Disney. Overall a great trip in a good value for money hotel, I would definetly recommend it!
Going to Disneyland Paris - Save yourself a fortune and stay here
I took my family on a 3 day trip to Disneyland Paris in February 2005. I booked this hotel via OctopusTravel and got an excellent rate.
The hotel is fantastic The rooms are spotless and spacious. The staff friendly and the continental breakfast excellent.
The location is perfect for Disney. Just a 5 minute train ride away on the Paris RER, and the train station is literally just round the corner from the hotel.
Also, if you want to travel into Paris it's just 25 minutes away.
The cost savings compared with booking a Disney Hotel package are immense and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anybody intending making a trip to Disneyland Paris.
It is a fine hotel
I only have been one night in the hotel, but the room was very nice and clean. The bartender was a very friendly man and he made lot of jokes. In the morning the breakfast was very nice as well.
Hopefully it will not take to long before we stay again in this beautiful hotel.
Stayed for 3 nights and got a really friendly welcome. Room was absolutely spotless and the chambermaid kept it that way for our whole stay. The airconditioning an absolute Godsend. The continental style breakfast (at an extra cost) was really good. Excellently situated for the brilliant train service to either Paris or Disneyland. Could not fault it in any way at all.

... beautiful with a wide range of activities to do - a bit like Central Park in New York but more formal. There were pony rides and tennis courts amongst other things, as well as the beautiful lawns and garden beds.
Our final stop for the day was the Musee d'Orsay. This is a converted railway station and the interior has kept all the wonderful features of the station like the ceiling and the huge clock but now has a display of paintings by famous ...
... to illustrate their never-ending love. If lovers decide to part, they must find the key to unlock the lock, which is impossible. Therefore, if a couple decides to put their lock on the bridge, it is forever. Who knows how long this will continue though. Alessandro explained that a part of the bridge collapsed due to the weight of the locks, which makes the locks a safety hazard. Other countries have had to ban locks for similar reasons.
We had another full day here in Paris and did we learn a lot! Of course we learned all that historical stuff that you would expect on our 3 hour walking tour, but we also learned some things on our own that may not have been "tour worthy", but were definitely interesting. 1) Chinese tourists love the odd looking recycle bins that are placed on the main streets here in Paris. We saw some photographing them this morning. The bins look a ...
A quieter day today. Jeff went off early to attend a perfume workshop. He is doing a two day course in one day. Hope it is better than the last one. I looked at going as well but it was going to be an extra €600, yes that's euro folk, for me to go along. That's a couple of frocks!! So I went solo to Parc Monceau for my run and happily the gates were open. A beautiful sunny day but quite chilly. Decided to clean the last three ...
... the postcards I bought in Montmartre while sipping pastis at a café around the corner. Dropped my cards back at the post office and hit a few bars starting at Troquet where the barman made me a lethal Long Island Iced Tea, apologising for the fact it was 8 euros instead of the "standard" cocktail price of 5 euros! Claire de Lune’s is situated on the corner of the intersection just up from Troquet so I stopped there for the "Fin du Monde", a "surprise" cocktail ...
