The biggest and busiest of Paris’s airports, Charles de Gaulle is 25km north-east of the city centre, and serves a quite jaw-dropping 70 million passengers each year. That’s quite a few travellers. And if you’re one of them and you need a hotel close by? We’ve picked out a selection for you to consider, from those practically on the runway (well, almost) to fancy ones a little further afield. We can’t promise you won’t be kept awake by a Boeing 747 roaring its way to somewhere sunny, but just think of the convenience... proximity is worth the risk of a restless night, right?
