I will be arriving in Paris Gard du Nord from Amsterdam and am trying to figure out how to get to our hotel in arr. 1? Can anyone offer any assistance?

Thanks!

Can you be more specific? Do you have a hotel name, a metro stop or an address?

Taxi is my first answer without knowing the specifics of your hotel I.e. The address or closest metro stop. You can get metro directions at www.ratp.fr/en.

It depends where in the 1st arrondissement your hotel is: if in the eastern 1st, you have RER B or RER D to Châtelet-les-Halles, métro 4 to Etienne Marcel, Les Halles or Châtelet. If in the western 1st, it depends on the exact location. Or you could walk if you have minimal luggage. There are a lot of métro and bus stops in the 1st and several lines.

Look on the hotel's website. Almost always, there are directions to the hotel from various transportation hubs within the city.

Sorry for not being more specific. I am not staying at a hotel, but am booked in an apt. I understand the nearest metro is Louvre/Rivoli.

Thanks.

Then why did you say in your OP that you were staying in a hotel?

I agree, just take a taxi.

Thanks for your help. I'm sure I can find a map of the Metro and figure it out myself.

Take the metro to Les Halles or the RER to Châtelet-Les Halles and walk from there -- it is just a few blocks. Faster and cheaper than a taxi. Exit through the Forum des Halles and use the Porte du Louvre.

I am doing a fair amount of travelling within Europe and am staying at a combination of hotels/apts. Not sure what the difference is if I inadvertently said I was staying at a hotel rather than an apt. Does that make a difference?
