How about Terminal 2 CDG Paris!

This is a heavy subject, I have written several posts on transports in Paris and on the airports. Even recently on T1, however, the one i have used the most almost exclusively has been CDG Terminal 2, and I own section F lol!

I am not going to be too technical and detail as many webpages have plenty of information on it and besides if you need specifics just let me know I can walk you thru them! Let me tell you a bit on CDG Terminal 2 as I am so near even go for snacks at night lol!

The Terminal 2 consists of seven halls,numbered 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F, and 2G. In the center of the terminal is the TGV-RER station Charles de Gaulle 2 Airport and CDGVAL Terminal 2 station.  You can move freely, in public area, between the different halls of terminal 2, on foot or by free shuttle bus. Terminal 2G is located further east, away from other halls and an inner free bus transportation will take you back and forth. Terminal 2 at Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport is the largest of the three terminals at Roissy Airport.

After your disembarkation follow the Exit-Baggage indications.Passengers ending their trip to Paris-CDG must pass a Border Police identity check (entry to France). Access to the public area (Level Arrivals in the main building) is made after the passage of the Customs, leaving the baggage delivery room.

The Terminal 2 is served by The Direct Bus, Roissybus, RATP bus lines 350 & 351, Noctilien night bus lines N140 and N143. A wonderful free way of moving between terminals and long term parking is with the monorail type of train the, CDGVAL , it allows you to easily connect all the car parkings and train stations of Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport, and my best partner!.  CDGVAL also provides links between terminals and makes it possible to circulate in all public areas of Roissy CDG. It runs every 4 minutes from 4h (4am) 01h ( 1am), and every 20 minutes from 01h30 to 04H30 (1:30am to 4:30 am). Travel time between terminals 1, 2 and 3 as well as car parkings PR and PX is between 2 and 10 min depending on which terminal you go ; like from terminal 1 to terminal 3 is about 10 minutes, terminal 2 is 8 minutes. The correspondence with RER B train and CDGVAL is possible. You have to go to Terminal 3 – Roissypole or Terminal 2.  The correspondance CDGVAL / TGV trains ,the connection is done at Terminal 2.

The parkings are  P1, PR (near terminal 1 and 3) P3, P3 RESA,  PAB,  PCD , PEF, PX. The closest hotels to Roissy Charles de Gaulle terminals are: Novotel Hotel “Paris CDG Terminal”, Hilton Hotel and Ibis “Charles de Gaulle Airport” These hotels are within walking distance from Terminal 3 or the CDGVAL from Terminals 1 and 2. Sheraton Hotel: close to the TGV and RER station, this hotel is located in Terminal 2 of Roissy CDG.

These terminals, or modules, are separated by a fast lane and car parks. A boarding satellite is connected to the terminal  2A by a gateway, two others (S3 and S4) are connected to the terminals 2E and 2F. Between the terminals 2C and 2D and between the terminals 2E and 2F, there is the station Charles Airport. de-Gaulle 2 TGV and the RER B station.  Terminal 2 includes many services, shops, bars and restaurants. There is even a museum space in Terminal 2E. Terminal 2E is one of the most important buildings in the world. Terminal 2E-hall K is beside the main building.  Terminal 2E-hall L is a satellite terminal, connected by transit train.  Terminal 2E-hall M is a terminal satellite, connected by transit train.  The transit train connects the main building (hall K) with hall L & hall M.
