Horrendous service - I am still waiting for my security payment to be returned to me! God knows why I had to pay twice for my hotel stay. The staff are being most unhelpful by not responding to emails.
A last minute trip meant I booked into one of the few hotels that could take me for 5 straight nights near northern Paris, 40 minutes from CDG airport and 40 minutes by train from central Paris, situated in the midst of an industrial area, you won't be coming here for the view! It is a hotel that caters more to coach parties than the business traveller so be prepared for late night doors banging, voices outside your door and so on. The walls feel paper thin, so thin you can practically hear everything said in the room next door, above and below. Your bedroom is a functional room, bed, small table with a kettle, basic TV channels (none in English that I could find - why should they be? - and I had hoped to find F24 I English ). Free wi-fi was a bit hit and miss, more often hit. Breakfast is very basic - cheese, ham, bread and some cereals and I didn't eat every morning, one morning was so full of coach parties that it as hard to get much of anything - the breakfast put me off the evening meals so I didn't eat there at night. Parking is secure - it's gated after a certain time with keypad entry. 3 of the 4 staff I met had very basic English language skills, the manager was better; all the staff are helpful and polite, at times however I struggled to get across what I was trying to convey.
A good normal Campanile hotel. Clean and functional. Rooms ok and average size as always. Good value and receptionist, Sebastian, quite helpful due to Booking.com mix up! Only down side is if you don't want to eat there it's a fair way to the main eating area. Secure car park. Looks like the coach companies use this place. But this wasn't a problem
Location is in the middle of an industrial area so, once your here you are stuck until the morning. Food OK but, beer is very expensive (€6.50). Room smells of cigarette smoke but, otherwise clean with a good shower and modern bathroom. Staff helpful & friendly. All in all, for £42 per night you get what you pay for.
On our journey South to our house in Charente-Maritime we had a stopover at this Campanile after a day at a nearby preserved railway. First impressions were not very good as it was in an area that was decidedly dodgy (in fact later that evening walking our dog we saw one or two ladies of the night on the corner looking for business)!!!!! The room was the usual Campanile clean and basic room, and we were happy with that. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was not very good at all. We started with the buffet that was very basic, not up to the usual Campanile standards. We both had the cod in a butter sauce which arrived looking like a frozen dinner with bits of cod (not one piece) put together to make a square shape. The sauce was congealed and it wasn't very nice at all. We had ordered chips instead of rice though and these were very good. Breakfast the next morning was another disappointment, the croissants were like rocks, they had obviously been warmed up from another day in the microwave (or similar). No fruit to see and only a baguette and jams to choose from other than that. It was a Monday morning, but even so the bakeries are open!!!
This is the perfect place to stay for a holiday in France. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the food is amazing, and the staff is unbelievably friendly and helpful. Its location is perfect being a short walk to the bus/train station for visits to Paris, Versailles, or one of the neighboring towns. Much less expensive than staying in a "touristy" spot!
I stayed there last year, in 2011, and it was a creepy, weird, never in my life experience... I arrived around 11:00pm as my plane landed in Paris around 9:00pm. They were aware that I will arrive late as I did call them and announce this a day in advance. I entered into the hotel lobby and nobody was there. I used a little ring stuff and after a half an hour a 30 something bored sleepy lady came and asked me (in a very bad English) what did I want. I told her that I had a reservation and she led me to the room. IT was a horrible room in which I entered directly from the street. The room was dirty, so were the towels and the TV was not working. Also I stayed there for 4 nights and I did not get a room key. They told me that the machine that writes the key code on the card is broken and if I wanted to enter the room, just to call the reception...from my own phone... So all in all it was bad, do not go there, it will only annoy you the prices and the arrogance and the unclean room.
We were meant to stay in another Campanile but 2 sat navs couldn't find it! After driving 50k past our intended destination we came across this Campanile. It was our first stay in a Campanile and it was excellent. Whether new or newly refurbished I am not sure, but for an overnight stay this is excellent. The room- though small had everything. Air con - good lighting - a bathroom mirror that doesn't steam up a great shower - on the dowside they seem to have adopted the towel mentality of a lot of small hotels - that is not to give you hand towels! However, I asked for an extra towel to wash my hair and they were only too happy to help. The restaurants are all the same in the Campaniles, we have now found, but good value for money and the food is quite acceptable.
Très bon accueil, personnel agréable. En cas de fortes chaleur, des ventilateurs seraient les bienvenus puisqu'il n'y a pas de climatisation. Un bémol cependant, quand l'hôtel est entièrement réservé pour un évènement familial important, des petits déjeuners devraient être servis jusque 11h au lieu de 10h.
Accueil qui ressemble plutôt à des formalités de paiement, sans plus. J'ai eu la "chance " d'avoir une chambre "Nouveau concept" à 121 € petit déjeuner compris.... les coursives sont "dézinguées), la chambre vétuste, sans clim, coussins tâchés, literie très limite, chambre et salle de bain totalement à rénover, serviettes hors d'âge.... petit déjeuner très très limite, départ à l'accueil comme à l'arrivée, impersonnel et où le seul fait important est le règlement de la chambre, tout ceci dans un environnement lugubre dans une zone d'activité. Passez votre chemin si vous pouvez !!! (Grand habitué des Hôtels avec 160 à 200 nuits par an depuis 32 ans sur la route....)
