HELP--Is Chatelet-Les Halles metro (Paris) safe to transfer?

Jump to last reply

We are taking RER B to and from Charles De Gaulle Airport.
It requires a change at Chatelet-Les Halles to get to the "Tuileries" metro station (1st Arrondissement).
The approximate time we will be changing at the Chatelet-Les Halles station will be about 6 pm (18:00) on a Saturday night and 6 pm (18:00) on a Monday night.

I need advice on how safe this transfer is and will it be difficult to do this transfer or should we just go to a different stop and take a taxi to the hotel (Renaissance Parc Vendome, 4, Rue du Mont Thabor, 75001). If so please suggest another stop.

There are many, many warnings about this metro station. Actually we were there 15 years ago and my husband was cornered by a mugger in the turnstile. My husband kept his wallet and we got away but it was really scary (and we're from NYC!). Yes, now we wear money belts. We are not showy, travel low profile, BUT it's pretty evident that we are tourists with our suitcase and probably equally evident that we are Americans.

HELP!
