Sejours et Affaires

Having stayed here in October of 2016, my honest opinion is that I probably wouldn’t return. It is very close in price to the Hi-Park Serris, which in comparison is utterly stunning for the price. If the Sejours et Affaires was considerably cheaper, I’d consider it, but the little extra money that can be spent on staying at the Hi-Park is definitely worth it.

Location

The location of the hotel is pretty good; to get to and from the parks one can either get the RER A from Val d’Europe, which is one stop from the station at the parks. The hotel is around 10-15 minutes’ walk from the station. It is also possible to get the shuttle which goes from the Hotel l’Elysée, as this is on the way from the hotel to the RER station. A downside to the location is that the hotel is opposite a high school which does tend to be quite loud before and after the school day.

Room

The room itself is very basic; I stayed in a double room which had a huge queen-sized bed. There was storage shelving and a small table attached to the wall. Personally, I felt that it was a little dingy; there wasn’t much light, and it wasn’t decorated at all, just painted with a hard linoleum floor.

There is a small kitchenette in each room, consisting of a hotplate, fridge, microwave, crockery and cutlery.

Amenities

My major turn-off for the hotel is that the reception isn’t manned throughout the night. I’m not sure why but as a result, I did feel a little uncomfortable knowing that there weren’t any staff around if we needed anything in the night.

The hotel does have free Wi-Fi, which was of a good enough standard to use FaceTime, watch videos and also do the usual browsing on a few devices at once.

A buffet breakfast is available for a charge; however, I didn’t have breakfast at the hotel and hence can’t comment on it.

Hi-Park Serris

I’ve stayed at the Hi-Park Serris three times this year; once in an executive studio, and twice in standard studios. As far as I am aware, the only differences are that a standard studio has a sofa-bed, and the executive has a double bed, and standard studios are between 18-31m2 and the executive studios are between 20-31m2.

Location

Whenever I’ve been, I’ve always used the number 50 Peps bus, which ran regular free shuttle trips to and from the parks. However, that route has now been removed and so I am not at present sure how you would get to the parks other than walking. It is around a 20-minute walk; I’d do it in the day but I’m not sure how comfortable I’d feel walking back after Illuminations for example, and so until more information about the changes in shuttle are known, getting to and from is a little up in the air.

It’s about 5 minutes’ walk, if that, from Val d’Europe and the Auchan there, so it’s in a great location if you want to get some food if you want to do a cheaper trip and cook for yourself, or if you need snacks or anything like that. The shops at Val d’Europe are brilliant, it’s nice to have a little break and maybe take an afternoon off and visit the Sea Life Centre there, or get dinner in one of the restaurants if eating in the parks or Disney Village isn’t what you fancy.

Amenities

I think the Hi-Park Serris is stunning, and for the price, I cannot imagine staying elsewhere if I want to be offsite. The studios have two electric hob rings, a small fridge, dishwasher, microwave, and a fair amount of cupboard space. The bathroom has a shampoo/shower gel dispenser on the wall, so not entirely necessary to take your own if you need to save on space. Breakfast is available for a fee; however, I’ve never experienced it so can’t really comment. Free wi-fi is available, and is pretty quick – I’ve managed to watch videos, use FaceTime and the usual browsing on apps without an issue.

For those visiting in the warmer months, there is a pool outside which looks lovely. The hotel is arranged in a square with gardens and the pool in the centre. Consequently, it is quite private and I can imagine lovely in the sunshine.
