The trains, operating from 05h to 24h and with a frequency of between 10 and 15 minutes, depart from the station located near terminal 3 of the airport.

A good option to stay in Paris is a hotel located near a subway station and a bit far from the center, to avoid higher prices. We chose the Etoile Pereire, located 300 meters from Pereire metro and RER stop and 10 minutes walk from the Arc de Triomphe. In addition to its magnificent location, the hotel serves an excellent breakfast and has one of the best quality / price ratios in the city.
