Looking for a convenient and inexpensive hotel at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport? Try the Hotel Ibis CDG Aéroport-Gares, located at terminal 3 right next to the RER station into Paris. Free airport shuttles go between the terminals, or you can catch the hotel’s own shuttle. Rooms (there are 556 of them) are compact, but clean and have all the modern conveniences like telephone with voice mail, WiFi internet access and satellite TV. Prices €79-€110 per night. Warning: While the Paris Metro runs until 1am, the RER B between the airport and Paris stops at midnight (then you’re stuck waiting for the hourly night bus or taking a taxi for about €50).
