Star Alliance Lounge Paris Review (Charles De Gaulle Terminal 1)

Posted on June 21, 2017 by in Priority Pass Lounges

The Star Alliance Lounge in Paris is located in Terminal 1 at Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG). It’s a 15-minute drive from Terminal 2, which is used by the dominating SkyTeam carriers. If you are behind security, there is a network of buses that can get you there and outside security a train can take you to the far-out terminal. Terminal 1 itself looks like it was built around WWII but has seen a number of remodels since.

The Star Alliance Lounge is open to Priority Pass guests. While it does restrict access to the network in times of high traffic, we still managed to get in while the lounge was pretty busy with a number of long-haul Star Alliance departures from the same terminal.

The lounge does not have the best space; it’s a collection of several rooms that were clearly offices before. Nevertheless, the project is a serious one and it’s almost on a level with the excellent Los Angeles Star Alliance Lounge at LAX.

This is France, so excellent food items like cheese, breads and fruit were no surprise.

However, there was also great coffee, as well as many alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

All that we tried seemed to be of excellent quality. The lounge features a new WiFi, which was rather speedy even at a time of full usage.

Given the many long-haul passengers, we waited almost one hour for a shower cabin. The shower rooms are clean and functional, though certainly not luxurious.

If you have a layover of at least 2 to 3 hours, do yourself a favor and trek out to the lounge – it is worth it. For longer layovers, this beats going into the city to instead have a productive day at the office (well, lounge).

4 / 5 stars
