The Pentahotel is a great airport hotel. My primary reasons for choosing this hotel were its price and free shuttle service to the airport. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff. They maintained a polite and professional image and sincerely catered to my needs. I stayed on the 3rd floor and found my room to be a little small, but aesthetically pleasing. The bed was comfortable and the shower had great pressure. On the morning of my departure, I took advantage of their breakfast buffet. It was good, but comes at an additional cost. Finally, the free shuttle bus service was awesome. It comes through the hotel on a frequent basis.
First of all let me say this: don't think you're going to get even a 4 star hotel....far from it. What you will get is a (a-hem) 'quaint' hotel room about 20 min from downtown Paris
Cons. -THERE IS ONLY ONE PLUG OUTLET in the entire room!!!
-FORGET ABOUT HANDICAP accessability...there is absolutely NONE -FORGET ABOUT smoking/non-smoking rooms...we smelled smoke from every other room all night long.
-the bathroom is incredibly small..I had to shower with one foot in the shower and the other by the sink
-There is NO A.C.
-Thin walls, very very thin walls..
The PROS: -
cheap, dirt cheap by Paris standards
-Very Very close to train will save you a TON of cash! About 2 blocks from the hotel..takes you straight into 'Paris Nord' the main hub which connects you to any point you go to in Paris including the airport, Eiffel Tower, The Louvre,etc. -coffee machine at front desk $1 euro -nice bakery, coffee shops and markets near tran station; very convient:),
-Located in Paris suburbs, very nice sites on the ride into town via train:) takes about 20 min.
-The front desk was very helpful, very helpful in directions and perfect English!
-WIFI was incredibly fast for downloading the days pics on facebook lol... Ok, so would I go back? possibly if I wasalone to save money; with a companion, no.
Everything was great. The front reception name maimona did an excellent job in accommodating us when we arrived so late in the morning of 3am instead of 3 in the afternoon due to missing the bus and train, so she extended our checked out time butt since we didnt need it all we need was a few hour of sleep and a place to take a shower but her hospitality was very much appreciated.
I needed to stay near CDG for two nights. I was very happy with this hotel. It's convenient. The staff is great. The room is nice for an airport hotel. I need a very quiet environment and the room was perfect for that. Good wifi. Convenient food options. The wine in the bar was not that great, but that was the only downside.
We were exhausted, wet and cold when we arrived and the hotel staff efficiently welcomed us and got us checked in and into our room. Great dinner nearby and comfortable rest that night. Loved the shuttle to and from CDG.
