I'm looking for advice on a good location to find a hotel from which we can easily get to the city and touristy spots, and importantly, easily checkout and get to the train station (Gare de Lyon) to catch a TGV to Montpellier at 9am. This is our first time in Paris and our French does not go beyond niceties.
Arrival/Departure: 5th May - 7th May
We have a 2yr old toddler with us and from reading forums I understand that Metro stations involve lots of steps? No lifts anywhere?? We plan on using public transit whilst in Paris - what are our options? Is there such a thing as a day pass for use on all transits? Ideally if we can just get to one location we don't mind walking around from one tourist spot to another.
