Which terminal of CDG do you arrive at?

What is the address of your hotel?

Details will help me give you directions.

By the way the metro does not serve CDG, but there is a train into central Paris - more details when you reply.

At the airport, follow the signs for RER trains to Paris. Buy a ticket into central Paris (€8.40) and get on the train towards Paris. Get off at Chatalet Les Halles and change to metro Line 14 going towards St Lazare. Go one station to Pyramides, which is the closest station to your hotel.

Go to maps.google.com and put in your hotel's address to see how to walk from the metro to the hotel.

Just to add to Nick's post, I assume you mean terminal 2B. To get to the RER (train to Paris) follow signs for "Paris par train": it's about a 10 minute walk through terminals 2B and 2D which are next to each other. It's quicker to walk than take the bus. Have a look at this which may help.

Have a great trip.

I've just had a thought. As an alternative to taking the train you could catch the RoissyBus which will take you direct from CDG to Opera. From there it's about a 500m -600m walk. Have a look at a decent map (on line if needs be).www.viamichelin.com is an excellent interactive map.

It never ceases to amaze me! most hotels in Paris, except for no star dives and some 1 star hotels, have an "acces" (access) tab explaining how to go from the airports to their hotel yet so many posters have no clue?!. I am not a computer specialist and am over 50 yet never have problem finding where hotel is in many places including Japan and China etc.

Mind you I grew up in the days before internet, when one had to look into guidebooks then send a snail mail to a hotel, wait 3 weeks for a reply, write back etc. OR just drop into town and start walking the streets to find a hotel...

I MUST add that my previous post shouldn't be taken as a criticism of the OP. It is a general remark as this question (how do I go from CDG to my hotel.) got to be the most FAQ. By the time one post one could have checked the hotel site. Now "how to go from (some not well know store or..) to..." is the type of questions we are glad to answer.

Actually, this particular hotel does not have very good instructions on how to get there, at least not on the general Best Western site I found.
