HOW TO go from the GARE de LYON,
(or from Marne-la-Vallée / Chessy — Disneyland),
to the Hôtel BELLEVUE et CHARIOT d’OR
39, rue de Turbigo
Telephone +33 (0)1 48 87 45 60
Look for the entrance to the "RER A" line ("A" in a red circle). From the Gare de Lyon, use a regular métro ticket (from Disneyland, a purpose-bought ticket is required, reflecting the actual trip), and proceed through the turnstiles to follow signs to the platform Direction St-Germain-en-Laye, Poissy, or Cergy - it is the same platform.
From Gare de Lyon, ride to the first stop, to Châtelet - Les Halles. (From Marne-la-Vallée, the trip is about 45 minutes, and you can follow your progress on strip maps above the car doors).
You have detrained at the Châtelet - Les Halles station.
- Exit towards the front of your train.
- Take the escalator or the stairs up (one flight).
- At the top of the stairs or escalator you will see dark blue Sortie (exit) signs, with different sorties indicated. The one you want is labeled Porte Rambuteau. Follow the signs across the mezzanine concourse to get to it.
- Pass through the ticket barriers you find barring your way (using the same little ticket you used at the airport), and go up another flight of stairs / escalators.
- At the top, you will find a bank of elevators / lifts. Use these to get to street level (press “0”). You could continue climbing by stair / escalator if you preferred (3 more levels up), but the lifts are easier with luggage.
- The elevator / lift will let you off outside. Turn left, to immediately come to the pedestrian rue Rambuteau.
At this stage, a neighborhood map may be helpful. If so, you may print one here.
- Turn left on rue Rambuteau. In front of you, 100 m away, is a rather large church. Walk towards it. Before you reach it...
- ...slink along the wall that is now to your right, rounding the corner, and leaving the church to your left.
- Straight in front of you, at the base of a short flight of stairs (which you can avoid by making a wider circle, if you have luggage), three streets lead away. Take the rightmost, the rue de Turbigo. Your hotel is up ahead, 4 blocks away on the left, at number 39.
