Thanking everyone for their advice on choosing a hotel in the 7th. We have chosen Hotel du Cadran for both price and location. We arrive CDG at 6AM so no doubt we will arrive at the hotel long before check- in time. Can anone tell me he approximate time to pass through passport control and customs at this hour? I felt this hotel was well placed in relation to transportation via bus and also well located to Rue Cler, where we can stay alive nearby while sleepwalking on our first day, and find restaurants and souvenir shops during the next few days.
I received correspondence from my first choice hotel stating that the dates in October were very busy as there would be a Grand Prix for horses at the Arc du Triomphe. Has anyone heard of this?
