Gare du Austerlitz for Ovwernight Train to Barcelona

We are arriving late afternoon on the Eurostar and will get a taxi to Austerlitz as we will have a large suitcase each which I expect will cost around €20 for us both and we don't want to use the metro, is this cost about right? What will be the best time to make the journey to avoid peak time Paris traffic. Is there a lounge at Austerliz for passengers on the overnight train. I know when we went overnight from Paris to Venice there was a loung with free drinks and snacks at Gare du Norde.

Any help welcome, thanks.

You can run a cost estimate at www.taxisg7.com

(Just so you know, there's a direct connection via line 5 between Gare du Nord, where the Eurostar arrives, to Gare d'Austerlitz. It would take you roughly 20 minutes, and because your start/end points are major train stations, your chances of finding a lift or escalator are quite good)

gares-en-mouvement.com/en/frpaz/votre-gare/ is the main site for the station; there's a lounge opposite track 16, but no listing as to facilities.
