If you are traveling on the budget and want to go to Paris you know you are in trouble from the start. Many hotels without private bathroom and terrible conditions. Few of them offers breakfast included in the rate but only if you pre pay your stay. We found Hotel Le Twelve which had reasonable overnight rates and booking conditions. When you are coming from Charles De Gaulle Airport best way is to go with RER B (direction Saint-Remy-les-Chevreuse) up to station Chatelet Les Halles. Here you catch Metro number 1 (direction Chateau de Vincennes) and get out of metro on station Porte De Vincennes. The hotel is about 100 meters from exit number 3 of the metro. From CDG Airport to Hotel this way takes approximately 45 minutes. Hotel is close to metro station for metro number 1. McDonalds is 3 minutes from hotel and there are couple of good grocery stores nearby. Small bakery and Greek food place is in the same street like hotel. We came around noon and checked in. Reception staff is polite and, unlike most of French that we encountered, spoke English. Our room No. 14 was on third floor. Small Comfort room with private bathroom overlooking courtyard. Room was clean but very small with not too much space to move or to leave your luggage. Bathroom was small and clean. You can see some pipes coming from the wall but nothing that made us go crazy. Downside of the hotel is that you hear everything from the hallway and from the room above you. Ask for the room on top floor so that you can avoid having someone making noise above you. Overall if you are light sleeper and cant book room on top floor run far away because you will go crazy after two sleepless nights. But if you do not have trouble with this and you are having hard time to find hotel in Paris this one might be good choice.
