For everyone asking how to get to your hotel from CDG - do you realize that for nearly every request, someone has to do this research to give you specific advice..? Wouldn't you like to know how to do this for yourself? Here are some tips - hope you find them useful.

1. know the hotel address and find it on a map ( )

2. have a map of the Paris metro ready ( )

3. know the options:

- Taxi direct from CDG to hotel (fares: 40-60€, depending on traffic, etc)
Important! Taxi drivers might refuse to carry more than 3 passengers!

G7 companies and Taxi bleus companies are supposed to accept visa and mastercard payments. Amex is barely accepted.

- Private car : for those who can afford 3G data roaming, Uber provides flat fees from airports to downtown Paris. Fare is 30/35EUR from/to CDG for a low cost car to  60EUR for regular Berline service.

 - Shuttles (fares: 18-22€ each person, one way, book in advance)

One of the best advantages is the fact that you don't pay extra for luggage and baby seats

- Roissybus, 8€ or so: DROP-OFF - rue Scribe, next to Opera Garnier area

- Air France coach: 12-13€ per person, one way 2 routes from CDG>>

       Line 2= DROP-OFFS Porte Maillot, Arc de Triomphe

       Line 4= DROP-OFFS Gare de Lyon, Gare Montparnasse

- RER train (Roissyrail) to several stations in Paris - 9€ or so, per person, one way:

       Gare du Nord, Chatelet les Halles, St Michel, Luxembourg, Port Royal, Denfert-Rochereau

From the above stations for Roissybus, Shuttles, Air France coach and RER, there are Metro connections and taxi stands

Look at the Metro map - you need to trace the metro lines nearest your hotel to the above stations


For automated advice, go to  and use the Itinerary planner:

- click on Station and enter "gare du nord, paris" or one of the other main stations listed above

- in the 2nd box enter your hotel address, ex. "123 rue bourdeaux, paris"

You will be presented with choices such as departure time, mode of transport,etc.

Then it will open a window with directions, travel time, and a map


The transport passes (Paris Visite and Carte Orange) *IF ZONE 5* also cover Roissybus or RER+Metro to hotel

If you take Roissybus or Air France coach, you can buy ticket from the driver

If you take a taxi, there will be a small extra charge (ex. 1€) for each additional luggage (First luggage is free)
