Transport for family of 5 from Eurostar station to hotel?

hi, we will be in Paris just after Christmas (on the 26th), i'm trying to figure out how to get from Eurostar train station (Paris Gard du Nord i think) to our hotel (Hyatt Etoile). I don't think a taxi would fit the 5 of us with 3 large suitcases - right? Will we need 2 taxis? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are taxivans available that will fit everyone, they are fairly common when arriving through the airport and I assume, they are also available at the GdN.

Follow the signs for the official taxi queue, do not accept offers from anyone approaching you about a ride or offering a set price ahead of time.

The vans can be found at the Gare du Nord, but they are less common than at the airport. You can wait until a van shows, or call taxi G7 upon arrival and order one.

And pay attention to JaimeLobo's advice. I just came back from London and the gypsy cab guys were pretty insistant.

Kumar, what does the linked post have to do with this topic -- do you work for that company?

Many of your posts seem to be promoting them, even when they have nothing to do with the thread's topic

Don't worry. Get in the taxi cue at the train station. Ask for a van and you will probably only have to wait for a few minutes before one comes around. The train stations have a person at the taxi cue who directs most of the action there.
