"Great location at a modest price" Best Western Le Nouvel Orleans Paris Tip by grantesmith
Best Western Le Nouvel Orleans Paris, Paris: 732 reviews and 2 photos
When I started looking for a hotel in Paris, I was appalled at the prices. I happened on the Le Nouvel Orleans and got a great price (about 75 Euros a night) on the Best Western website. I then learned you could get to the hotel from CDG Airport on the train with no transfers for about 7.5 Euros a head. As advertised, the hotel was just a short, easy walk from the train station. Getting through the stations with luggage, though, is an adventure.
There is a Metro station across the street from the hotel, and the line there will take you to Notre-Dame and the Ile de la Cite in about 5 minutes. From there, the Louvre, Pompidou Centre, Jardin des Tuleries and Musee d'Orsay are within easy walking distance. One transfer and about a 10-minute ride will get you to the Eiffel Tower. A transfer at Notre-Dame and an additional 5-minute ride gets you to the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees. In addition, there are a number of very good restaurants and bars in the immediate area.
The lift (elevator) is only big enough for one person with a suitcase, and it is slow. The rooms are somewhat small. We had a queen size bed. With our luggage open, there was sort of an open path around the room. The bathroom was also small. However, I am 6-foot-6, and I did NOT feel cramped or crowded. Other than sleep and shower, how much time are you going to spend in a room?
The hotel provides a breakfast for about 10 Euros a head. We tried some of the restaurants and coffee shops in the area and decided it was a good deal. You can get rolls, fruit, yogurt, cereal and all the coffee you can drink.
The staff at the front desk was always courteous and very helpful.
It wasn't spectacular, but I would recommend it to travelers who can get by without an auditorium to sleep in.
