Our very first Disneyland 'break' I should say started here and perhaps I should say that the fact that we have since returned here speaks volumes.
It is good, not excellent but you seem to get what you pay for in disneyland.
Plus points are: NORMALLY the cheapest of the disney accepted hotels,Clean, free shuttle bus services to and from disneyland throughout the day, the breakfast is great (all you can eat buffet continental style ie lots of croissants, pain au chocolat, rolls, cheese, nutella, fresh pineapple, coffee,eggs), parking is very easy and close to the hotel and the hotel itself is very easy to find.
Bad points:Quite cramped for our family of 2 adults and 2 small children I would not now attempt it now we have the baby aswell even though they would allow us to all get in, No swimming pool, Staff unfriendly both times we have been although we experienced worse at explorers, No lighting/electricity in the room unless you have the card key plugged in to the wall - we only found this out when my husband went off with the key!
Do check prices as I said you get what you pay for so if there is not much in it between this and for example explorers then I recommend explorers for the extra size and swimming pool.
We visit Disneyland a couple of times a year as it's actually a lot more affordable to visit than a lot of people realise. A family of four can go to Disneyland and stay in one of the budget hotels like this one for a few nights mid-week for only around £500 including eurostar travel.
This is one budget hotel that was a bit too budget for our liking though as we travel with a young child and this hotel had no facilities to cater for children. There is lots of outdoor space, but all of it is decorative and there is not so much as a climbing frame!
The bedrooms are adequate and we found them nice and clean although there was a strong smell of smoke in the room we stayed in even though smoking is not allowed. The bathroom was small but adequate and my Mrs approved of the all the space for her make up and toiletries bits.
The staff here weren't very helpful and in fact there was rarely ever more than one person behind the reception desk. In the restaurant there was always a long wait for service and the prices were high really for such a low standard of food.
There is a bus that runs to all four of the budget hotels which all sit in a row next to each other about five minutes away from the Disneyland parks and the Kyriad bus stop was right out front of the hotel which we found really convenient. In fact it was the only real redeeming feature about this hotel.
The last trip we went on we stayed in the Holiday Inn which cost us a few pounds more but was well worth the extra cost. We were right next door to the Kyriad so still close the park on the bus route but had access to children's facilities and an indoor pool. If you can get a good price for one of the other three budget hotels, or afford to stay in one of the DIsney hotels if you're taking a longer holiday, then I recommend you do that.
We stayed here in December last year and it was an excellent hotel. The rates were very reasonable and were the same price for four people in a room as for one - although this could have been a special offer so do check before you book.
Location of the hotel is very good, both for getting to the Disney park and for out of town shopping centres. There is a shuttle bus which runs at frequent intervals to the Disney park and this picks up and drops off outside the main door of the hotel.
We found the hotel easily enough as we drove to the resort and there were adequate car parking facilities there. Within a few miles of the hotel there is a major retail outlet with a shopping centre and supermarket, very handy if you wanted to eat out or have a change from Disneyland.
The hotel was clean, smart with good decor, and the staff were all very helpful. There is a bar area where you can buy drinks and when this is not open there are vending machines in the lobby.
There is also a small boutique situated within the main reception area, where you can buy Disney souvenirs. Prices were the same as at the resort and they had some items that were not for sale at the park. Ideal for gifts to take home.
We ate breakfast every day in the hotel restaurant and there was a good choice of foods, including continental breakfast and cooked breakfast. Although the cooked breakfast was not to the same standard as you would get in Britain, but this did not bother us as we prefer healthier options. However, we did hear several Brits complain about the bacon not being as good as they hoped! (Why go to France if you want to eat English food??)
The restaurant did tend to get rather busy at breakfast time, but this was around Christmas and the hotel was busy with large groups of visitors. We were given tokens to hand in at the restaurant as we entered and it was self service so all we had to do was find a table and then load up our trays.
We did eat in the restaurant one evening but did not feel the choice or quality of food was up to much, so ate out after that. Although, in fairness, we have to say it was rather late when we arrived and the food had probably been out on the hotplates for a while, making it not very appetising. However, the choice did seem limited and the prices seemed rather high for what was on offer.
The hotel rooms were comfortable, with en suite bathroom. There were bunk beds in the rooms and we had two rooms with an interconnecting door, making it ideal for keeping an eye on the children. We needed broadband internet access and this was available, making the hotel ideal for anyone wanting to stay there for business.
We have stayed at other Kyriad hotels, all of which are part of a larger group, and run on a franchise system. The Disneyland Resort hotel was one of the best we stayed at, but then you would expect a decent standard at a resort like this.
We booked through Expedia so probably got a special deal, but you can book direct with the hotel. Look out for special offers as you can make big savings, sometimes breakfast is extra but we were on a special deal where it was included in the price.
As it was Christmas when we were there the hotel was decorated very tastefully and everywhere was very clean and comfortable. I would certainly stay there again and as there is a direct train from Disney resort into Paris, it is an ideal place to stay if you want to combine a trip to Disneyland with a trip to the capital.
