This establishment seemed perfect in terms of location near the theme park.
Moxy Paris Val d'Europe - Location
The Moxy Paris Val d’Europe is located in Montévrain. From Gare Saint-Lazare railway station, it takes around 1 hour to get to Val d’Europe station (RER A), which drops you off 500 meters from the hotel.
Nearby, you’ll find an array of restaurants, mainly on Rue d’Ariane, close to the RER station. The hotel is also close to 3 grocery stores (Auchan, Monoprix and Aldi). For those in the mood for a bit of window shopping, it’s a 10-minute walk to the Val d’Europe shopping center, which also houses the Sea Life Paris Val d’Europe Aquarium.
Moxy Paris Val d'Europe - The hotel
The Moxy Paris Val d’Europe offers a modern, dynamic atmosphere that’s sure to please adults and children alike.
Having opened in fall 2022, the hotel’s architecture is definitely contemporary. The pixelated facade in shades of silver and grey is elegant, standing out in its environment, but without being out of place.
Inside, the hotel’s relaxed atmosphere makes it a friendly and welcoming place to stay. The layout is reminiscent of the magic of its famous neighbor, whether it’s the jungle-like atmosphere in certain areas, the colorful and sometimes magical murals, or the huge play room, which many of us adults envied.

Moxy Paris Val d'Europe - Restaurants
The hotel offers 2 dining areas.
The Moxy Bar is located in the lobby/reception area. This is the area where the hearty morning buffet is served. You can order snacks at any time. In the evening, the place transforms into a cocktail bar, where many gather to chat and meet new people.
Opening on March 7, 2023, Bistro 51 defines itself as a bistronomic brewery. Chef Grégory Foussier-Chavigny revisits the classics of French gastronomy, using local, seasonal produce. The menu is affordable, ranging from €19 to €30, depending on the formula and before adding in drinks. It’s a good thing that a family clientele was taken into account in the design of the place, with a menu and an area dedicated to children, maximizing the chance for parents to dine in (relative) peace and quiet.
Moxy Paris Val d'Europe - Services
A well-equipped gym is available at all times. Here you’ll find the traditional treadmills, elliptical trainers and free weights. True to the Moxy banner, you can also let off some steam on a pink Moxy “punching bag”.
Business guests have access to a meeting room for up to 12 people. If you need to work in small teams, several sitting areas are scattered around the large lobby.
Connected people benefit from a high-speed Wi-Fi connection at all times, and will easily find an electrical/USB outlet to recharge their equipment.
Moxy Paris Val d'Europe - Overall impression of my experience
As soon as we arrived, the friendly, attentive staff greeted us with the premises’ signature cocktail. We took the opportunity to enjoy the impressive, bright, open lobby where you can relax, chat or play board games.
Despite the hustle and bustle of the clientele during our stay, we appreciated the opportunity to relax in alcoves or join a group for a game of billiards.
The interior design is really well done, while certain areas of the lobby made us feel like we were in the world of Alice in Wonderland. I also fell in love with the mural by the elevators, where the wall lights take the form of red umbrellas.
As for the bedroom, although the layout was minimalist, it was very functional. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom sufficient for our needs. Despite its proximity to major roads, the windows are well soundproofed. In this respect, it was really nice to be able to open the windows, which is often not possible in hotel rooms.
Finally, despite waking up late in the morning, the buffet was still very generous towards the end of the service. We were able to satiate ourselves with bread, pastries, fresh fruit and yoghurts, all accompanied by the obligatory café au lait.
One thing’s for sure, we’ll be coming back to this hotel, but this time to visit Disneyland Paris with the boys.
