This hotel is very convenient for first timer and people who love to shop as few big departmental mall nearby and many kind restaurants, cafes and bars all over within walking distance. The hop on off buses company also operate closed by. You will near feel bore here. Also the direct airport bus stop also opposite the opera which make it convenient for people who want to take the Roissy bus at one way Euro 12.50. Taxi cost is Euro 55 one way. Astra hotel thought is not a new hotel but is clean and well maintain and if you book the superior room it is quite spacious and comfortable. They do offer free non alcoholic drinks and snack from 1pm onwards till late. Can see that many Asian guests stay in this hotel too. The staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this hotel.
