CitizenM Paris Has Opened With Distinctly Un-Parisian Prices
Il est arrivé! CitizenM Paris opened at Charles de Gaulle airport last week, and the reviews are in – or at least, three of them are up on TripAdvisor.
There are no room types, of course, but cushy furniture and fittings, multicultural plugs and sockets, and a Samsung tablet to control everything in the room all get a thumbs up. Triple glazing means you get to enjoy watching the planes without hearing them, and Vitra furniture (and floating zeppelins in the lobby) means you get to sit around in style. It’s walking distance from Terminal 3, or 20 minutes from T2.
Prices this week look pretty decent – ranging from €67.15 ($90) to €109.65 ($150), with the rest of the month looking steady at the €75 mark and the entire month of August at €67. Note that these are “citizens only” rates – sign up to their mailing list and you automatically get 15% off and free cancellation until 6pm day of arrival. Très handy.
With these kind of prices, and with CDG just 30 minutes away from central Paris on the train, we can see this becoming a budget hotel option for actually visiting the notoriously expensive City of Light – not just getting in and out of it. Let’s hope they stay low – cough New York cough.
