A pleasant residential area close to Paris and Orly Airport

The Best Western Hotel Journel Paris Sud enjoys an advantageous location, being close to both Paris and the tranquillity of nature. Our establishment is situated in a quiet, safe and pleasant residential suburb of the city and enjoys a close proximity to shops, restaurants and places of activity and entertainment. It is also very well connected by road. You can get to the N7 Route Nationale in 3 minutes, the A6 Autoroute in 6 minutes, and the Francilienne ring road in 7 minutes. The Gare de Ris-Orangis, a railway station from which the RER D express service will take you to Paris in around 40 minutes, is only 1 km from the hotel.

However, this urban context does not prevent the city from benefiting from a pleasant natural environment, notably thanks to the Seine which borders it, the parks and the golf courses around it, and the nearby Forest of Sénart. This well-balanced location, partaking equally of both urban and natural environments, is what makes Ris-Orangis the ideal destination for a stay that is conveniently close to Paris but away from its hustle and bustle.

A comfortable, elegant and easily accessible hotel

Whether you come alone, with your family, your partner, or with your colleagues for a seminar or business meeting, the Best Western Hotel Journel Paris Sud is the perfect pied-à-terre, being comfortable, elegant and easily accessible.

Orly Airport is only about twenty minutes away, and the Gare du Nord and Paris Gare de Lyon railway stations of Paris are directly accessible thanks to the RER D. This suburban train circulates regularly throughout the day and until late in the evening, providing a permanent link with Paris and its most notable and popular places of interest.

In just an hour, you can get to most of the monuments and museums that are so emblematic of the capital, including the Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Montmartre and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysées, the Orsay Museum and the Pompidou Centre.

Ideally located to the south-east of Paris, in the heart of a network of travel routes and international transport hubs (Orly Airport 20 minutes away, Autoroute A6, etc.), the city of Ris-Orangis benefits from the economic dynamism of an area that is very well served and famous for the international market of Rungis, the largest market of agricultural produce in the world.
