|Paris CDG Airport Hotel Shuttle Buses & Courtesy Vans|
Here's where to find the hotel shuttle buses (navettes hôtels) & courtesy vans at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, and which of the vans or buses to board.
A few hotels at or near Aéroport Paris-Charles de Gaulle are right within the airport itself, reachable on foot, by CDGVal shuttle train, or by airport shuttle bus. The others, off the airport property, are served by free hotel shuttle buses, or by hotel courtesy vans.

Be Careful! Confusing Hotel Names!
As you may have noticed, names of hotels at CDG Airport can be confusing: there are more than five Ibis hotels, for example, as well as four Novotels and four Première Classe hotels, all in different locations. If you take the wrong shuttle bus or courtesy van, you'll end up at a hotel that has the "right" name, but doesn't have your reservation. Double-check the exact name and the location of your hotel. If in doubt, show your reservation to the shuttle bus or courtesy van driver.
Where to Find the Shuttle Buses
Hotel shuttle buses and courtesy vans depart from the roof level above the Aérogare 2 train station (also called Gare SNCF, Terminal 2 Gare TGV, and Paris par train/Paris by train) between Terminals 2E (Air France/Skyteam) and 2D
Look for the Brioche Dorée bakery shop on the upper level above the Aérogare 2 train station, and climb the stairs or take the elevator/lift near it up to the roof. You'll see the shuttle buses and courtesy van stops.
Look for the Hotels by Shuttles sign:
To hotels in Roissy-en-France and the Paris Nord 2 Business Park, Keolis operates three color-coded hotel shuttle bus (navette) lines (Black, Pink & Blue) serving 18 hotels. Here are downloadable timetables.
The Black and Pink Lines serve thirteen hotels in Roissy-en-France; the Blue Line serves five hotels in Paris Nord 2 Business Park. (Hotels in other locations, such as in Le Mesnil-Amelot, are served by hotel courtesy van—see below).
These free color-coded shuttle buses run about every 20 minutes from 05:00 (5:00 am) to 00:30 (12:30 am) or 01:30 (1:30 am), departing from Roissypôle (Aérogare 1, Terminal 3, Gare Routière), stopping at Aérogare 2 (Terminal 2) before heading for the hotels.
Both the Black Line and the Pink Line serve hotels along a 1.2-km (3/4-mile) stretch of Allée du Verger in Roissy-en-France (map), but the two different lines stop at different lists of hotels. (The thirteen hotels along Allée du Verger are fairly close together, across the street from one another.)
The trip between Aérogare 1 and Aérogare 2 takes 12 to 15 minutes, and from the last of these to the middle of Allée du Verger another 12 to 15 minutes, so allow at least 30 minutes for the ride from your hotel to either airport stop (although your shuttle bus trip maybe as short as 10 minutes, depending on which hotel you use, which Aérogare you're going to or from, and how many passengers get on and off the bus at each stop.)
The Black Line stops at these hotels along the west and north sides of Allée du Verger:
—Ibis Styles Roissy
The Pink Line followes the same route as the Black Line, but in the opposite direction along Allée du Verger, stopping at these hotels on the south and east sides:
—B & B
The Blue Line serves hotels in Paris Nord 2 Business Park:
—Première Classe Paris Nord 2
If your off-airport hotel is not one of those above (such as the hotels in Le Mesnil-Amelot), it is probably served by a hotel courtesy van, which may or may not charge a fare. Check with your hotel to learn the schedule and if there is a fare.
Most—but not all—courtesy vans stop at the Aérogare 2 train station in Terminal 2, and most also stop at Roissypôle for Aérogare 1 (though the sign on the station reads not Aérogare 1 but Gare Aéroport Paris-Charles de Gaulle 1).
