- if you're flying into Charles de Gaul airport, bring 8 euros *in
coins* for the train ticket into town
- don't exchange much money at the airport, the exchange rate is
terrible. $50 gets you 28 euros.
(Supposedly ATMs and credit cards are the way to go, although most
places don't like US credit cards because they lack chips.)
- If you forget a US power adapter for your laptop, you can get a
simple one for 7 euros at
Bazar D'Electricite, 34 Boulevard Henri IV, a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel.
- the hotel wireless is ok, but voip/p2p/streaming are forbidden, and
has a 200MB/day limit.
