Gare du Nord - Vavin

Hello, we'll be arriving at Gare du Nord with Thalys and our hotel is metres from Vavin metro station on Blvd Montparnasse. Can we take the metro at Gare du Nord? Do we have to change?

Thanks!

You do not have to change. At Gare du Nord, follow the signs for the Metro and take Line 4 towards Mairie de Montrouge. Get off at Vavin.

You need to become familiar with the journey planner at www.ratp.fr

If you have any luggage, take a taxi.

Yes, line 4 is perfect, with plenty of room for baggage.

Unless you can't manage the luggage, I wouldn't recommend taking a taxi when stepping off the Eurostar: since most of the passengers are on business, they'll take taxis and the queue is usually very long, especially if you are coming from the back of the train. Anyway, the laptop-only crowd will have arrived before you, and you'll wait for nearly an hour for your cab. So, el subte is definitely the better option, with escalators both at GdN and Vavin (which is a small station anyway)
