Jumpy much? If not through a CC, how else would you expect to provide a deposit?

Looks just like one of the newer Ibis Budget (formerly ETAP) rooms. It appears not to be a one-off hotel. Closing their front desk at 2200 likely allows them to price compete with Accor's budget chains, but it betrays their hipster projection. All said, it would be worth a try if one had a Plan B at CDG.

Only 3 June remains.

Thanks OP, I just completed the sleep test. This was entirely legit, no scam by any means. Terrific deal. The sleep test included free room, free wine & cocktails and 50% off food. The CitizenM Paris offers convenient location, modern design, self checkin-check out, quality bedding and shower, free internet access, free on demand movies and interesting food options. Would definitely consider other locations on my future travels.

We also did the Test Sleep this past week, and it was entirely legit. And honestly its a wonderful option for CDG transit. Its extremely close walking from CDG T3 RER terminal. The beds are HUGE (takes up about 1/3 of the room). They did an excellent job insulating the rooms from sound. Wifi is free, and check-in/out can be pretty quick since its all done through a kiosk. And if you select a "runway" view you might just be overlooking the Concorde...

Downside is service was pretty bad (granted it was a test sleep), no one knew much of how anything worked (the couldn't fine luggage tags to hold bags, they "ran out" of the free cocktails, only some breakfast items were included others were 50% off but it wasn't clear what was what).

Its also a bit on the trendy side (if you've stayed at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas or SLS in LA that'll be a fair comparison).

They're opening rate is now 79euro (or 67.15euro if prepaid) which is a steal compared to the Hilton right next door for 189euro. They're supposedly opening the next location in la defense so look for another sleep test offer there if you're interested...

I have stayed at CitizenM both in London and Amsterdam many times. Excellent experience each time if you are ok with minimal human intervention and a lot of technology in the room.
