    Paris hotel for two nights?

    I'll be arriving in Paris in early May. As I've never been there before I'll spend two nights there before taking the train to SJPdP. I want to spend less than 100€/night, and would like to be fairly central with easy access to the train station.

    Is it practical to plan to travel CDG - SJPDP in one day?

    Our flight arrives CDG at 6 am and we plan to take taxi to Gare Montparnasse. Assuming we allow 3 hours for Customs & travel time, does that leave us enough time to get to Bayonne & transfer to SJPDP? We’re not traveling until early May and rail schedules don’t seem to be posted yet. Thanks
