Pullman Hotel, Roissy Airport

The Pullman Hotel at Roissy airport is located right next to Roissypole station, between Terminals 1 and 2. It’s literally about two minutes on foot from the station to the lobby.

Since my last visit, the hotel has resumed full operations. Back in the spring there were still Covid restictions in place. This means that the pool and the gym are now back in service and open to hotel guests.

The lobby and bar area have windows all around, which gives the space a nice, bright appearance. Strangely though, whenever I visit this hotel, it feels a bit like a ghost town.

Opposite the bar there’s a small, open business centre.

During my stay, I’m upgraded to a king suite, which is spacious and nicely designed. The suites take up the space in the rounded tip of the building. In any case, there is a sitting room area with a good size working desk.

The bedroom is large and very comfortable. It’s a slightly odd shape though, owing to the rounded facade of the hotel.

There’s also an Illy espresso machine and complimentary soft drinks and beer in the fridge.

The bathroom is spacious and has a separate shower and bath.

The cosmetics are by Bigelow’s.

In addition, every room has its unique QR code that guests can use to order room service. If your rate includes breakfast, this also means that you can order breakfast to be served in your room at no extra charge. It is also possible to order breakfast for the same day, and there are multiple options for breakfast available, which allow for a lot of customization.

CitizenM Paris-Roissy Airport

Here is the Link to the CitizenM website.

In Paris I am staying at the CitizenM near Terminal 3 at Roissy Airport. The CitizenM is a Dutch based hotel chain, with facilities in Amsterdam, London, New York, Glasgow and Paris. The main objective of the hotel, according to the website, is to provide affordable style and luxury to modern travellers.

If you visit their website, do not be put off. Admittedly, there is something seemingly pretentious and somewhat obnoxious about the brand, but their hotels are really quite nice and comfortable.

The public area of the hotel is spacious and generously laid out, with many comfortable and equally chic seating options. There is no restaurant as such, just a bar and a 24-hour self-service canteen style buffet with a limited but usually quite tasty selection of hot and cold dishes.

In contrast, the rooms are quite small and compact, dinky in fact. In all honesty, the rooms look as though they were designed with every intention of making sure guests spend as little time as possible in them. There is a large double bed that takes up the width of the room, pushed up against the window. There is not all that much storage space, except for a drawer underneath the bed and a rail with two or three hangers. Every room comes with:

  1. a safe,
  2. a fridge,
  3. toilet and shower with amenities,
  4. free wifi,
  5. free movies,
  6. mood lighting and
  7. a tablet device to control the mood lighting, blinds and all the other appliances in the room.

Check-in and check-out is completely self-service and very easy. And there is always somebody from the hotel available in case you have any questions or if you would like to change the room you are in. Oh yes, and the views of the airport from the fifth floor are just brilliant!
