I was really worried after reading some very poor reviews before I left for my holiday, so wanted to add my review to balance this out a bit. Fortunately, I found this accommodation to be absolutely fine. I stayed here for five nights in July to visit both Paris and EuroDisney with my daughter. I had booked a room with two double beds. It was a large room, and it was clean. The bedding provided was clean, and the room was serviced every other day. It had a kitchen area with dining table and chairs, fridge, microwave and hobs, plus basic kitchen equipment. The bathroom was a fitted plastic looking unit, and although small, it was clean and the shower was good - it was fine for our needs. Towels were provided, and wardrobe space was good. We were using this solely as somewhere to sleep in between our busy days, so didn't spend much time here. The room got quite warm at night (even though it wasn't very warm outside), and I did need to shut the window in the night as it was a bit noisy outside.
The room had a TV (didn't really use it), and there was free WIFI, but it didn't work very well most of the time in the room.
My experience of the service was fine - the reception was staffed all the time, and when I had questions, they were helpful and friendly. They were happy to keep my luggage in a locked room when I arrived early in the morning.
In terms of location, it's just 2 minutes walk from Torcy train station on the RER (zone 5), and that is half an hour by train direct to central Paris, or ten mins to EuroDisney, so I found it really convenient. One piece of advice - leave the station at Torcy through the turnstiles on the Leon Blum exit. If you exit on the other side you can't cross back over (or if you can, I never worked out how), and it's a long walk around.
Another piece of advice: on arrival, we took the train from Charles De Gaulle to Torcy, which took ages - firstly for me to work out what tickets I needed, and secondly as it was simply a long way round, going via central Paris, when Torcy isn't that far from the airport. It was expensive (around 28 euros for one adult and one child) and we had to change. On arrival at the hotel, I was told a taxi would have been less than 20 euros and it would have been much, much quicker. I think a taxi up to 35 euros would have definitely been worth paying for, for the time it would save alone (and if more than 2 people, then even better value). If you are driving, there is parking space right outside the hotel.
We didn't try breakfast at the hotel as I found a lovely boulangerie a couple of minutes walk away (down the steps to the right, just outside of the entertainment area), and bought it there to take back to the room, including take-out coffee. It opened early in the morning until around 8.30pm.
The hotel is almost adjacent to a leisure area with bars and restaurants. We only went in once, but there's plenty to choose from if you are staying local. It doesn't have much atmosphere, but I imagine you would be unlikely to be staying here other than it being a good location for getting to somewhere else, rather than as your holiday destination.
For EuroDisney it was a doddle - frequent trains, only 3 stops, and when you arrive at Marne Le Vallee, the entrance is opposite the train station. Going home at night there were trains to accommodate the late closing times, so no problems there either, and I felt safe enough.
All in all, this was cheap and convenient accommodation and I think what we got for it was excellent value. If I went back to EuroDisney I would definitely return there, although for Paris, a more central location would be more convenient (and also vastly more expensive I expect!).
