EUROLINES bus station in Paris is in the town of Bagnolet, east of Paris stuck. The good thing is that it is affordable: by metro line 3, GALLIENI last stop, and one can go directly from the subway to the bus terminal. The good thing, besides having eurolines offices open from 6am to 11pm, is that it is by a big shopping center where you can eat/buy something for the trip, cheaper than in the shops and cafeteria at the bus terminal. This mall is called BEL-EST. If arriving by subway the entrance is a few meters from the subway exit. It Auchan, Mc Donalds, bakery, pharmacy, small restaurant, and fast food with salad or hot pasta. Also a few meters, and a couple of bars, and a newspaper vendor. In the same shopping center is a hotel CAMPANILE, and behind 3 other hotels (MISTER BED, ETAP HOTEL, and IBIS), perfect for being close to the subway and going to visit Paris. Eurolines now has the right to promote bus travel within France (until June 2011 was only entitled to sell international tickets), which can be a good alternative to the train, they always get something expensive!
