"Great choice for less expensive stay near Disney"
We rode the RER to the Disneyland stop and took the pink #50 bus to the first stop and then walked about 100 meters to the hotel. This was so convenient. This same bus picks you up right at the door to take you back to the station or Disney. The hotel staff was super and spoke English extremely well. The room was very clean. We did sleep on a sleeper sofa which we were a bit concerned about, but it was fine. There is a refrigerator and that is just great. Water does get on the floor every time you use the shower, and that's no ideal, but it was ok. The room is not cleaned daily. There was a city tax charge The mall with a grocery store and many food options was about a 5 minute walk. We never ate breakfast there so can't comment on that. Overall great choice to save some money and still be close to Disney
I was surprised how good the Explorer Hotel was - we were a little worried by some of the reviews. Our son has many complex food allergies which the staff were all aware of and they provide separate food for him at dinner time - not rubbish allergy food but proper salmon, chicken or cod with vegetables and rice or potatoes - and large portions. A special thanks to Patrick Pichon who took our long list of food allergies and found out what we could and couldn't eat for breakfast and dinner, he also greeted us on arrival and made sure Fabien ( dinner manager who was also fabulous) and Gael (the breakfast manager) knew who we were and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. They also provided us with a fridge in our room 5 mins after arrival because we had to carry special milk and margarine.
The room was great and our 3 year old loved the bunk beds - we were ment to have a 4 bed Crew room but they left the door open to the adjoining room which had another bunk bed in it and another flat screen tv. The room was decorated like a pirate ship :) . The shower was great - even though on of the kids had pulled the metal casing off the tube - plenty of hot water and high pressure. The tv was great once you worked out how to use it - they had Cbeebies in English - although it didn't get much use it was good to distract the little one while we fed him a snack.
The whole hotel is themed for little ones with a dragon in the foyer, 3 pirates ships one in the heated pool.
Good experience. Large rooms with enough outlets to charge phones, pads, laptops etc. Free WIFI and Ethernet outlets. Quiet country setting, yet close to Eurodisney and TGV train station, (reached in about 10-12 min. with hotel shuttle, see schedule) Good food. Got a great deal on Expedia. We could buy tickets for Euro Disney there.
Will gladly come back.
We booked the most basic room that we could find at this hotel (double studio-promo rate) and we could not have been happier or more shocked by this hotel. The front desk agent was very nice and the lobby was quite luxurious, and the breakfast area was huge. Considering the price was so low we were not surprised when we were directed to a room on the lowest level, down a somewhat basement-y hallway to the end where our room was. Inside our room was the shock - it was the size of a small apartment, with a separate tub and shower, as well as a full kitchen and living room, and a closet and wardrobes for clothing. We could have stayed comfortably for a week! It even had a sliding patio door that walked out to a little yard with a hedge. Very beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and the (included) breakfast was EXTENSIVE. The only thing was our train was at 6:50 and the shuttle didn't start running to DLP and the train station until 7am so we had to take a 20 euro cab ride. No biggie. Highly recommend!
