Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport
Travel Blogs from Roissy
Once we landed in Paris, we went through customs, gathered all of our bags, and headed to the Delta counter to see if we could change our flight to Athens to a day earlier. It would cost us $300 to make the change, so we just decided to stay in Paris for the night at the Hilton CDG. A train took us from terminal 2 to terminal 1 and then we simply …
After a long day of traveling, we made it to our hotel at Charles de Gaulle airport. It's amazing how great a shower feels after so many hours on a plane! We went downstairs to the hotel restaurant & had some dinner with great European beers (Leffe & Heineken were both on tap). Now it's time for some much needed shuteye, so that we're fresh for …
... around 3:30 we were able to check-in with our airline and once we were without our luggage, we went to Starbucks to hang out for a while. It was a chai tea sort of day (anyone who knows me well, knows that I find Starbucks chai tea very soothing).
The set up at Terminal 1 is different from other airports that I've been to. The terminal itself is circular and the airline desks are on the main level in ...
... but now I think I have finally figured it out. I can use internet on my phone all the time and can make calls to the US until the credit on my card runs out. So, I will never be charged extra. My phone will just stop working when it runs out of credit. Hopefully, this will make my life so much easier!! The one thing that I can be proud of is that the reason I am able to understand so much more this time is because my french has improved.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Roissy
The very impressive lobby is a nice welcome to this Hilton property. The hotel is very tastefuly designed and decorated, the rooms are nice and very comfortable. The hotel location is great - their shuttle takes you there in less than 5 minutes from terminals. Most of the rooms have views of the CDG runways which is nice if you are a plane enthusiast as I am. The hotel is completely sound-proof so you do not get to be disturbed by the airport noise. However I was disappointed with housekeeping. There were small particles of paper towels left on the floor and on the sofa when I got the room. There was no tea or coffee in the room although a posted note suggested I should find some in the mini bar. When looking for coffee in the minibar I touched an item an a sensor obviously must have gone off, since that item was charged to my account. This incident prevented me from using express check-out since I had to stop at the front desk and request the charge to be removed from my account. At check-in I also requested a 6AM wake-up call, which never happened! Luckily I had my mobile alarm set just in case. If I hadn't set it I would have missed my morning plane! What kind of a hotel does not give arranged wake-up calls?
Had to spend 2 nights at Charles de Gaulle Airport; found a good deal for a week-end: room with breakfast for 99 euros/night. Bonus: the first night, at the restaurant it was 2 dinners for the price of one. Buffet dinner with wonderful food, like oysters on the shell, etc...Great value.
Terrific employees. Luxury. Best hotel and best food at the airport
Excellent hotel. We checked in at about 9pm after a missed flight and finding the Ibis unacceptable. We probably paid more without a reservation than I have since seen advertised. It is a lovely hotel, mainly for business use I think, with large foyer, atrium etc. We paid for an executive room which gave access to the executive lounge, this allowed free drinks and snacks, which is a real bonus (this included alcoholic drinks).
Airport hotels can be hard to love, since they are often chosen more for the sake of location and convenience. This often leads to things being allowed to become a little threadbare as properties make a living off a steady supply of one-time visitors.
We arrived into Paris around 9 pm and did not want to make the trip into the city so we stayed at the CDG Hilton. For an airport hotel it was one of the nicest and most luxurious that I have stayed in. Our room was huge and had a king size bed. The offerings on the breaksfast buffet were extensive and delicious. The staff was more than helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
Great for quick overnight
Just completed a one-night stay at this property. Great room product (free standing shower and a deep soaking tub). Food was a little pricey (but that is the norm for hotel food all over Europe) as was the mini-bar (4Euros for a soft drink). Very convenient to Terminals 1&2 and the RER stop is right behind the hotel. Great "planespotting" opportunities and very quiet rooms. I would certainly stay there again (especially at the special 53Euro rate I received on the Hilton website!).
Stayed in the Hilton Charles de Gaule on my last night in Paris on Easter Sunday since had an 8:35 AM flight on Air France to JFK the next day. Hotel was perfect after being in the smaller European style hotels in the city itself and let me and my wife get a good night sleep and good bath/shower after a week in Paris. The room I had was large with a full bath with both a shower and bath. The King size bed was very comfortable. The hotel had a very large breakfast which I did not partake since it cost 24 euros so just made some coffee in the room and grabbed some pastries at the Airport before my flight. The Shuttle leaves every 15 minutes and the hotel is within walking distance of CDG1 stop on the RER train from the city. Since was just staying a day did not check out the fitness facility or pool though the meeting area looked very nice of what I saw before getting asked to leave by the Hotel staff. The price for my room was 119 euros prepaid. This is a good hotel for Business or if like me you are taking the 8:35 AM air france flight to JFK and do not want to hastle waking up an hour earlier that would be required if one slept in city centre. There also is an IBIS hotel nearby if one is on more of a budget which also looked decent for a one night stay before a early flight.
Beautiful rooms, but food was questionable
This hotel is really quite beautiful and the rooms were very large and exceptionable and the staff very friendly. But ... I was deathly ill on the flight home probably because of something I had eaten from room service at midnite, on the eve of our departure. If it wasn't for this unfortunate incident, I would give this hotel 5 stars. I recommend that you order dinner in the restaurant or at an earlier hour in your room.
Very nice hotel/good value
Beautifull hotel in great location just 5 minutes away from terminals.
Easy access to Paris via train. Very good value for price paid. Good value rates 3 weeks out. Large rooms. Complimentary access to indoorpool + sauna....loved it!
Hotel is within a 5 minute shuttle to CDG. Basic business class hotel very expensive. Taxi to Paris center is about 50 Euro one way. Would not suggest staying here if want to visit city center. Great for meeting a early morning flight.
