Paris-Brest-Paris 2019 Accommodation
« on: July 15, 2018, 12:00:49 pm »
The newly-built Ibis hotels next to the velodrome are now taking bookings for August next year.

https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/city/hotels-montigny-le-bretonneux-v2658.shtml

From £37 per night in the Ibis Budget and £57 in the regular Ibis Hotel plus late checkout is an option for those of us aiming for a Sunday night start.

Good call that man, though it's a little pricier if you want a cancellable booking, and dearer the end night too.

(I know, I know - prices from ...)

Booked, bit of a better location than the industrial estate in Trappes. Prices were cheaper than those quoted by Adrian.

Literally next door to the start.

How are they with bicycles in the room?

They were being built in 15 so don't know. But other Ibis have been fine and they must know PBP and bikes are coming.

Dunno about this particular hotel, but we never had any problem bringing a tandem into an Ibis budget room, and we tried many, many ones all over this country. Staff at Ibis budget just don't care. Staff at regular Ibis tend to be more hostile to cyclists.

The cost of the rooms is only likely to go up.  These hotels are perfect for PBP and close to places to eat and drink and opposite the start, unlike many of the other budget hotels which are in industrial areas or dead suburbs.

Is it it that time already....

I must get back in touch with my old boss who has an apartment just north of Republique in Paris which I've used the last two PBPs.  Dead handy for Eurostar and its an easy ride down to Invalides for the RER.   

It means riding PBP unsupported but with hindsight that's been no hardship.  Ive saved on the expense and have free (*) left luggage and somewhere to assemble my bike pre/post Eurostar.   

(*) well, save a bottle of Tanqueray or suchlike.

Nope.

Booking at least a year early is The Only Sensible Way.

Very Experienced Randonneurs have been known to book years in advance. Me, I've already bought options in the new Trappes Trump Tower for 2023.

Prices for PBP dates have more than doubled already. Clearly others have been booking up the hotels.

I've already booked my accommodation for the Friday and Saturday night and then the following Thursday and Friday night. If I do not take part in PBP then I can cancel my booking and it won't cost me anything.

And it'll only cost me £20 a night too  :thumbsup:

Nothing to do with saved cookies and the budget one is now no longer available on Sat night.

We booked our hotel for the start and end last night. Took a bit of doing as they are filling up, couldn't get in to the normal one we use.

If you want the authentic how-we-used-to-do-it-in-the-olden-days experience, may I suggest booking Le Pavillon Bleu?  ;D

All of this hype led me to look up the place I’ve used for the last 3 editions.  Of course it’s booked up.
