Walking from train station to hotel

Jump to last reply

I wanted to get some feedback on something I've been thinking about. So I will be arriving at Gare de l'Est in Paris. We are staying at the Hotel Est (Monop' Gare de l'Est) which looks like it's about 3 or so blocks away. It looks close enough that we can walk with no problems but I've been looking at the street view on google and just wondering if I'll catch stares if I'm walking down these streets hauling luggages? It will be myself, my wife and my mother and we each will have 1 large luggage and our carry on's? I'm comfortable doing it and really don't care if anyone stares or tries to scope me out a possible target for theft but I don't want to put my mother/wife in that situation. Should I take a taxi/bus there? I just don't think it's far enough to justify the need for that but I'm willing to shell out if I will stick out like a sore thumb. Address of hotel: Est Hotel 49 Boulevard De Magenta - Paris, France
