We chose the Lux Hotel Picpus for our accommodations for a brief 3 day stay in Paris. We were headed to Germany to board a cruise ship and decided to arrive in Europe (Paris) a few days early to adjust to the time difference. Our goal was a hotel that was good value, clean, and mostly had good connections to public transportation and trains to the airport. This hotel fit the bill. Located in a nice residential area near Nation Station it was very easy to reach by train from the CDG airport. We took the train with only one very easy change. We then walked the few blocks to the hotel.
The hotel itself met our needs perfectly. The room was quite small, but it was clean and quiet. The front desk was helpful. We suggest having the breakfast at the hotel unless you eat a light breakfast because there are no breakfast cafes in the area. You can always find a coffee and pastry, but if you want more, eat at the hotel.
Wifi was available to us and worked just fine.
