What a delightful hotel. Rooms are so spacious particularly for Paris. Position is outstanding on the canal. We were lucky to be on the 6th floor with a wrap around balcony enabling us to view the canal both ways. The waterway is just a thrive...More

This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.

I would call the hotel and ask. If they do not provide this service, it is a short distance from Gare du Nord to the hotel, so it should not be expensive. Instead of walking out the front of the Gare, looking for a taxi, follow the signs inside to the taxi stand, which is on the side. This is where they line up to receive travelers and there is someone employed for the purpose to direct you to the next cab. This may not be a guarantee of protection from overcharging, but the valet on duty should be a caution to those who queue up to get riders. I have gotten taxis here and never felt overcharged or that anyone tried to take advantage of me. I have noticed in the last 2 years that cabs now usually have some kind of GPS on the dashboard that has a map telling the driver where to go and how to get there, so that may allay fears. Also, remember that what might seem to be an easy trip as the crow flies may take longer because of one-way streets.

Hi, There is a train from CdG to Gare du Nord that is direct. It is about 20 e, I think, round trip. Once you get to Gare du Nord, you could take the metro to the stop near the hotel, but I would not, if I were you, because there is no elevator that I know of at that metro station. Instead, go to the taxi stand at Gare du Nord and take a taxi. It's about 10 e and worth it. When you return, do the same thing. The hotel will call a taxi for you, free of charge, and you wait in the hotel lobby until the taxi arrives. The driver calls the hotel receptionist, who then tells you your car has arrived. With respect to the train from CdG to Gare du Nord, you will have a ticket that allows you to get onto the train. Keep the ticket handy because you need it to get out of that area of the station at GdN. It's no big deal, just the way things are done. BTW, if you are on a train in France, as opposed to a subway, you must "validate" the ticket before boarding. There are machines in the stations where you place the ticket into an opening and it is validated. I am making these comments on the assumption that your luggage is on wheels. If it is not, take an ueber or a taxi, you'll be much happier. If you do have luggage you just pull along, you can save a lot of money by taking the train from CdG to GdN, and then take the taxi to the hotel. I have noticed on my December visit to Paris that the taxis are equipped with GPS of some kind and so you can watch that as well as the traffic around you. It's a little comforting because otherwise, without the map, it is easy to feel the driver is going out of his way to prolong the trip, whereas the explanation is that there are many one way streets and construction and driving is not something that is done as the crow flies. I hope these comments help.

It's only a few kilometers to the Gare du Nord. You can walk to either the Stalingrad or Laumiere metro stations and take a direct metro line (Number 5). It would be about a 10 minute walk and a 10 minute metro ride, I believe. But with kids it might be easier to take a taxi. The hotel will be glad to line one up for you if you request it. Even though the Gare du Nord is not far, give yourself plenty of time - you never know with Paris traffic.
