Close to Disneyland Paris are a number of Partner Hotels. These are hotels that all have a free shuttle bus to the theme parks, but are not owned by Disney itself. As a result, you often pay less for a room or have more luxury for the same amount. The Campanile is one of those Disneyland Partner Hotels in which I have slept several times myself. Below you can read what to expect!
Location Campanile Val de France – Disneyland Paris
The Campanile Val de France is located next to Disneyland Paris, across the street from Hotel Santa Fe. If you are athletically inclined you could walk the distance to the Parks. But I would personally enjoy taking the free shuttle bus. It runs very regularly and drops you off near the entrance to the theme parks. Walking takes about 45 minutes if you go by Hotel Santa Fe, by bus about 5 minutes. Choice quickly made, right?
If you’ve been to Disneyland Paris before, the name Campanile Val de France probably doesn’t ring a bell. That’s because this hotel is the old Kyriad Disneyland Paris. Same hotel, facilities etc. only now with a different name. (Kyriad belongs to the same group as Campanile)
The easiest way to get to this hotel is by car. You follow the same route as the Disney Hotels, drive past Hotel Santa Fe and then on your right you will already see the Partner Hotels of which Campanile is one.
In your navigation, put the following address:
10 Avenue de la Fosse des Pressoirs, Magny le Hongre, France
This route will take you to the parking lot where you can park for free. Ample parking spaces are available. Sometimes you can even park right next to your room.
This hotel is also very easy to reach by Thalys. You take the train up to the Disneyland Paris stop. Right next to the train station there are all kinds of bus stops. The sign will tell you exactly which bus to take for the Partner Hotels and it will take you to the reception of the Campanile Hotel.
The hotel itself…
… Is neat but quite basic. Basically what you can expect from a 3-star hotel. The main purpose of the hotel is to provide a place to sleep next to Disneyland Paris. In the lobby there is a Disney store with souvenirs from the theme parks, there is an arcade with video games and two restaurants plus a bar.
Other than that, there isn’t much to do, but of course there doesn’t have to be. Nearby you have Disneyland Paris and a large shopping center along with a shopping street with outlet stores of famous (expensive) brands.
This hotel is also a good base for visiting Paris or Versailles. They can help you at the front desk with booking a trip there or with tips on the easiest way to get there.
The rooms of Campanile Val de France
The hotel has 300 rooms, most of which are for 4 people. They have a double bed or two single beds. In the family rooms there is then an additional bunk bed up to 70kg.
In the room you have a TV, safe, kettle, air conditioning, bath, shower and hairdryer. All the basics are there.
If I had to mention a disadvantage of this hotel then is that the rooms are very small. Especially if you go with kids, you’ll quickly be “cooped up,” especially if they still have some energy left. But for the price, it is a great alternative to the Disney Hotels. You just have to make sure you return to the room dead tired.
Another downside, but maybe that’s different these days, is that the rooms are very hot. We always slept with the window open to still get some fresh air. Not a big deal but keep in mind that at least here you don’t need thick pajamas.
The Campanile Val de France is a 3-star hotel a few minutes from Disneyland Paris. This is a Partner Hotel which means there is a free shuttle bus to and from the Parks. This shuttle bus runs every 20 minutes between approximately 08.00 and 24.00. You can also walk to the Disney theme parks but I personally don’t recommend that.
Other than that, this hotel is primarily a place to sleep. The rooms are not that big and quite basic. But do offer everything you need for your (short) stay.
A good alternative to this hotel is the B&B Hotel. This is a 2-star hotel with more spacious, but slightly less beautiful, rooms.
