Aparthotels for families
Conveniently fitted with functional kitchen facilities and child-friendly features, there are a number of residential hotels located around the station Val d’Europe, which is one RER stop or a five-minute drive from Disneyland. The area also boasts the Vallée Village (a large shopping centre selling discount designer clothes), the Sea Life aquarium and a range of restaurants. A free shuttle service to Disneyland, a swimming pool, and attractive prices (from €66) are among the advantages of staying at the L’Adagio Val d’Europe. Past guests highlight the hotel’s cleanliness and its attentive staff.
The Séjours & Affaires and the Residhome Val d’Europe aparthotels are both particularly appealing for families with practical features such as bottle warmers, high-chairs, travel cots, good storage and private car parks (at a supplement). From €60.
Another good deal is the Résidence Hipark Serris-Val d’Europe. This modern, tastefully decorated complex that opened in December 2012 has left guests pleasantly surprised given the value of its rates (from €70). Sauna, fitness centre, swimming pool, LCD screens, children’s play area and garden: the range and quality of the facilities wouldn’t disappoint guests at a 4-star hotel.
Towards the town of Magny-le-Hongre, also a five-minute drive from Disneyland, the Résidence Adagio Access (from €75) provides travellers with accommodation in fully equipped individual houses with their own garden, all in a calm, bucolic setting. There’s even a small supermarket and a bakery next to the site.
Hotels within easy reach of the fun
The Kyriad (from €70) located just a few minutes’ drive from the theme-park attractions, is an affiliated Disneyland hotel. It sells Disneyland tickets directly to guests offers a free shuttle service to the park. There’s also a children’s play area and a Disney shop on site.
Just one RER stop from Disneyland, the Ibis (from €76) at Val d’Europe is a reliable option that offers functional rooms, professional service, parking and a restaurant. Just next door, the Ibis Budget is cheaper still (from €50), but is not advisable for families as the facilities are very basic and the hotel doesn’t offer family rooms.
Lastly, the Chanteloup is a good alternative for families. Located 7 kilometres from the theme park in a calm, leafy setting, it proposes several rooms with bunk beds and a shuttle service (supplement) to Disneyland. The level of comfort is somewhat basic according to some, but the prices are a snip (from €63).
