I've been doing a lot of looking around, and have been coming up frustrated.
Will be in France in July 2014. Landing at CDG, on a Wednesday,and have a Gite in Normandy rented startign on the Saturday. So, we want to spend 3 nights around Paris to see the sights.
We will have a car, and finding a hotel in Paris is expensive. Add 30Euros per day for car parking, and it really adds up. Looking to spend $150 per night for a place to stay, including parking and taxes.
So, I was considering staying in the outskirts of Paris where the chances of getting a less expensive hotel with parking are higher. We can park the car, and take in the Metro, or RER trains.
I've poured over booking.com and hotel.com and other sites, and am coming up frustrated. Is there a well-known area to stay with decent hotels right close to a Metro line? Im thinking Pontoise - since that is the C-line, and connects directly to the Tower. But, I suspect it might take a while to get into Paris?
