Resolutely modern: Toulouse-Lautrec in the Grand-Palais

Do you think you know Toulouse-Lautrec? The exhibition in the Grand-Palais from 9 October to 27 January 2020 may prove the opposite. This autumn, the museum is bringing together some 200 works by the artist, inviting visitors to take a fresh look at them. Decryption.
La Goulue, le Moulin-Rouge, brothels… The Parisian night and its pleasures are at the heart of Toulouse-Lautrec’s work. Should he be reduced to a painter of the “Montmartre culture”, a witness to his drunkenness and debauchery? No! replied the curators of the exhibition “Resolutely modern”.
It is time to open the prism and finally see Toulouse-Lautrec as an artist of realism, a direct heir to Ingres, Manet and Degas. His own realism is expressive, sudden, funny, direct. He intends to depict the reality of his time in all its aspects, including the least suitable ones. Without judgment, without criticism, and always with great humanity. Certainly the style remains incisive, caustic and even satirical. But there is also poetry and aesthetics that are not the result of chance, but rather of a research, an ambition assumed by the painter from Languedoc.
Singular and complex, as Toulouse-Lautrec could be called. Toulouse-Lautrec, avant-garde painter? Toulouse-Lautrec, precursor of futurism? Whatever the reading we make of it, his work remains unique, and his paintings fascinating by their colours, their movement, their realism sometimes believed.
From October 9th, let yourself be seduced by the inimitable verve of this great master of painting, brilliant and talented but misunderstood in his time.

Techno Parade 2019

Save the date: the Techno Parade is back on September the 28thin Paris! What’s the line-up? A flock of tanks equipped with sound systems to spread decibels through the streets of the capital: house, electro, trance, dubstep, drum’n bass, hardcore…


The Techno Parade celebrates its 21stanniversary! This is now a well-established appointment in Paris. But are you familiar with the concept? Hotel Palym offers you a short three-point summary of the “whys and hows”.

1/ Celebrating electronic culture and music:as primary aim of this event and reason it was created. Since then, this genre has been adopted rather well by youth and the public, but there are still obstacles remaining to the development of this music style. The Techno Parade therefore intends to continue to engage the media, the public and institutions.

2/ Celebrate: DJs in abundance, non-stop sound… Techno Parade does everything in its power to get you moving! Above all, it remains a unique moment of celebration, freedom, dance and conviviality that brings together nearly 400,000 people!

3/ Discover: organisers, labels, artists, collectives, project leaders… thanks to the different floats of the active parade. Each in their own way, they contribute to this great celebration, offering an international showcase of some of the best. It is also an opportunity to highlight emerging talents.


If you are not afraid of the crowd dancing on the rhythm of electro sounds, Hotel Palym advise you to come to Paris on September 28thfor the Techno Parade.

On the racks, in the shelves, labels appear indicating -30%, -50% and up to -70% reduction. Clothes, shoes, furniture, perfumes… nothing escapes the big sale! Come in, ladies and gentlemen, everything must disappear before the new collection arrives!

Hôtel Palym - Fête de la musique

The 2019 Fête de la musique

Musical and friendly: the most popular of the summer’s events is back on June 21, 2019! As every year, the Fête de la musique breaks out in the towns and villages of France. And the magic happens. In Paris as elsewhere, on June 21, go out and stroll through the streets and squares transformed for the occasion into a gigantic open stage.
The Fête de la musique, everyone knows it! The group of young people who throw the decibels in the local café, the choir of the conservatory who gut its repertoire in front of the church, the unknown guitarist who sings his ballad on a piece of sidewalk or the star who sets the stage on fire in the main square for a one-night concert. What do they have in common? The taste for music of course, but also the desire to share it, for free, just for the pleasure of being together and having fun.
The Fête de la musique, everyone knows, but how about the Fête de la musique in Paris? On June 21, 2019, from the Palym Hotel, discover the musical treasures of the longest day of the year! Vibrate to the rhythm of Japanese drums on Place de la Bastille, sing a song in an improvised choir to the sound of accordions on Place des Vosges, do it all with electro music on Rue Saint-Antoine, swing on a barge moored on the Seine, led by a group of funk, jazz and groovy musicians or dive under the pyramid of the Louvre for a classical concert by the Paris Orchestra.
As you will have understood, choice and variety are on the program, and the program continues to grow day by day!

Lenny Kravitz and Elton John: two stars at AccorHotels Arena!

There are many good reasons to stay at the Palym hotel: cosy and stylish rooms, a wide range of services, a central location… This situation in the heart of Paris allows it to be in contact with prestigious neighbours, including the AccorHotels Arena, one of the capital’s largest theatres! It is here that two international stars will perform in June: Lenny Kravitz and Elton John.
The first one is a rock icon. In his 30-year career, Lenny Kravitz has imposed his style and name on the international rock scene. In 2019, the New York artist returned to the road for a new world tour. Entitled Raise Vibration Tour, it follows the release of her latest album. On June 5, Lenny Kravitz will be in Paris at the AccorHotels Arena. A date that takes on the appearance of a regular appointment for fans, less than a year after his last visit to this same venue.
If there is still time to book a ticket for Lenny Kravitz’s concert, be aware that Elton John’s concert on June 20 is already sold out! The king of British pop, the artist with 300 million records sold worldwide, now a legend and a superstar after 50 years in the music business, is about to retire. His great world tour Farewell Yellow Brick Road is none other than his farewell tour. We understand the eagerness of the fans who literally rushed to the places as soon as they were put on sale. Notice to latecomers: a catch-up session is scheduled for October 10, 2020, again at AccorHotels Arena.
This incredible 2018-2020 tour includes no less than 300 dates across five continents. When you’re Sir Elton John, you do things big.
Book your rock and pop stay at the Palym Hotel!

Forehand, backhand, cushion, half-volley, ace, slice… From May 20 to June 9, the clay at Roland-Garros will once again vibrate under the expert feet of the best tennis players in the world. An experience to live at least once!
Surprise! Surprise! We weren’t expecting him, but he will be there: Roger Federer has confirmed his presence at the 2019 French Open tournament. This will spice up this mythical competition. You wouldn’t want to miss that? Then let’s go to the east of Paris! Especially since this year the stadium is opening new facilities.
Larger, more modern, more welcoming and more open to the outside world, the New French Open intends to establish itself as a Grand Slam star! All eyes will be on the brand new Philippe-Chatrier court, the famous central court.
Be careful, however, that the smell of new does not distract you from the essential: the matches! Keep in mind that this tournament is known to be the most difficult in the Grand Slam. From qualifying to the grand final, the matches are already shaping up to be exciting!
Some tips to make the most of your Roland-Garros experience. First, remember to book your tickets early. Secondly, bring a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and umbrella: the weather in Paris is changing fast and the retractable roof is only expected for 2020! Note: to tan, nothing beats the deckchairs on Place des Mousquetaires. A little something to eat? Don’t worry about a snack: bars and various stands are at your disposal. Instead, keep a place in your bag to bring back a souvenir. Yes, at Roland-Garros you can also go shopping!

The Schneider Electric Marathon of Paris

It’s THE spring sporting event in Paris! On April 14, the cobblestones of the capital will tremble under the crowd of runners who have come to compete for the traditional and unmissable Schneider Electric Marathon in Paris. An international event, combining performance and conviviality, this great race is also a must for the public!
The figures speak for themselves: 55,000 runners and nearly 145 nationalities represented. The Paris Marathon is undoubtedly one of the most important in the world. And now it is even available over four days thanks to the Salon du running which precedes it from 11 to 13 April at the Parc des Expositions at the Porte de Versailles.
Why such a craze? The ordeal itself has never been so well. This mythical and popular 42.195 km race is particularly appreciated by athletes. As proof, the number of editions is multiplying all over the world with undeniable success. And Paris has its followers! The City of Light is one of the favourite sites of marathon runners.
Its west-to-east route through the most beautiful streets of the capital is certainly not to blame. On the program, beautiful monuments in a unique setting, but also an alternation of small climbs and descents that make this marathon one of the most challenging!
On the spectator side, you too can enjoy the scenery, attend the many activities organized throughout the course, without forgetting of course to encourage the athletes! This year, note that the Paris Marathon will be green or not! The organizers commit themselves and you to an eco-responsible marathon.
