Is Paris on your travel wish list? If you've always wanted to walk the streets of the City of Light, we're glad to add a new stop to your itinerary. The best part? It can make airport layovers more bearable, too.

Unless you’re traveling first class all the way, no one enjoys a long haul flight—much less, an extended stay at an airport hotel. And no matter how tempting a few extra hours in Paris may seem, having to spend them close to the airport instead of in the city center can put any exhausted traveler in a sour mood.

There are a number of airport hotels situated just a few minutes away from Charles de Gaulle airport, but none are as vibrant and environment conscious as the Nomad. Built for the busy traveler and just 10 minutes away from CDG, its vibrant pops of color and open, communal spaces provide an oasis and reprieve for jetlagged folks in a hurry to catch their next flight.

The biggest feature of this airport hotel is its dedication to green spaces. Its façade consists of a true green wall punctuated by a few windows—certainly not as breathtaking as the Eiffel Tower, but a refreshing and welcome sight for weary tourists.

Situated in an expansive hotel complex, Nomad is surrounded by gardens and other modern green hotels—while markedly different structure-wise, all the buildings are brought together by a cohesive thread of nature. Swathed in bright pops of pink, turquoise and purple, Nomad’s box-like structure vibe is youthful and fresh from the outside in.

The ground floor consists of an open space that’s designed to look more like a collaborative co-working space than a hotel lobby.

A high ceiling allows natural light to flood in, illuminating a foosball table, some tree-lined seating, and occasional poufs. Tall glass windows provide a view into the outdoor deck and the neighboring hotel. The ground level also hosts the dining area, which is centered on a concrete island housing the drinks and cocktail area.

It’s in Nomad’s bedrooms that the green spirit of the brand really comes alive. Each room is equipped with a signature nautilus-designed shower, which offers three types of jet settings and has a tracking system of how much water you’ve consumed throughout your stay.

The tablet-controlled shower can also help you set the mood—the circular light over top can be color-customized according to your preference.

Minimal and sparse, you’ll find no TVs and sound systems within the hotel room. That’s because the room’s tablet allows you to operate your own wall projector, which you can plug your own mobile device into or which you can use to tune into local TV stations. 

Everything is centralized and controlled via tablet, bringing your typical airport stay straight into the future.

Nordic in inspiration, the light wood finishes allow for more brightness to come into the room. Both the shower floor and the bathroom sink are also fashioned out of recycled quarry stone. Even linens are founded on an eco-friendly concept, with zero chemical treatments and quilts fashioned out of recycled plastic bottle processes.

For a short stay in Paris, this three-star hotel doesn’t just provide the right environment for travelers to catch some much-needed shuteye before jetting off again. It also gives those who are carbon footprint-conscious the opportunity to do some good for the environment while exploring the world.

Nomad Hotel Paris Roissy CDG Aeroport is located at Le Mesnil-Amelot, France. You can book a stay at P4, 000 a night. Visit their website for more information.
