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.

Roland-Garros 2019

In May, take advantage of your stay at the Palym Hotel to review your classics! 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!

Hôtel Palym - Concerts Paris

What concerts to see in Paris in March?

Paris, Paris… Like a muse, the city inspires artists. The ones from yesterday, the ones from today. Writers, filmmakers, but also singers! And the capital gives it back to them: the agenda of Parisian concerts is enough to make them dizzy. Hotel Palym offers a small selection… just to wait until spring with music!
In March, AccorHotels Arena offered itself a few big names from across the Atlantic, starting with Nicki Minaj. The queen of American rap will perform on the major Parisian stage on March 7. On the program: a total immersion in Queen’s world.
Another must-attend event at AccorHotels Arena is Drake’s concert on March 13, 15 and 16. The successful Canadian rapper settles in Paris as part of his European tour “Assassination Vacation Tour”.
The rap icon will be followed on the stage of the AccorHotels Arena by another Canadian: Shawn Mendes. The new pop darling will show his pretty face on March 19, the date of his only concert in France.
For a more French-speaking programme, head for Olympia with Angèle. The young Belgian revelation of 2018 has already seduced a large audience. The proof: his concerts on March 12 and 13 are sold out! You can take solace in listening to Boulevards des Airs on March 20: for lovers of French song with lyrics and good rhythm!
At the Zénith, two other French artists are also featured. First of all, Jain, on March 20 and 21. The young artist is currently on the road to present her “Souldier Tour”, named after her 2nd album. On March 22, Eddy de Pretto, another prodigy of French song, will perform there. Unclassifiable and unavoidable, the young man has been a sensation since the release of his first logo.

Hôtel Palym - Salon de l'agriculture

International Agricultural Show 2019 : Paris goes green

“Women, men, talents”. In 2019, the International Agricultural Show honours those who work every day to keep the agricultural world alive. A must for more than half a century, the SIA will open its doors from February 23 to March 3 in Paris at the Parc des Expositions Portes de Versailles.
Exhibitions, tastings, demonstrations, competitions, workshops… This year again the Show will fold in four to offer you a good breath of countryside in the heart of Paris. Dogs, cats, goats, sheep, cows, bulls, horses and all the animals in the farmyard will be there. The best places to approach them? The milking parlour and the educational farm, of course, a favourite place for small townspeople.
But this year, more than animals, the spotlight will be on the men and women of the agricultural sector. Come and meet them through the four universes that punctuate this show.
Livestock and its sectors: here are gathered the largest number of French animals with high genetic value, and those who breed them. A real showcase of excellence for this sector.
Products from the regions of France, overseas and around the world: French terroirs do their show! Discover them, taste them and make them infidelities by testing the specialities from the five continents.
Cultures and plant sectors, garden and vegetable garden: a trip into the world of plants with a new feature this year, the creation of an escape game on the Odyssey of Plants.
Services and professions in agriculture: for professionals or those interested in the sector, a place to exchange and glean all kinds of information.
And this year again, get ready to stick together: the Show is expecting more than 650,000 visitors. The price of success?

Hotel Palym - soldes

On your marks, ready? Discount!

After the holidays, they are the ones we expect the most: the winter sales make their big annual comeback starting January 9. The opportunity to make (still) beautiful gifts. And what better place than the fashion capital to shop freely? Until February 19, we’re all meeting in Paris!
Do you know the Golden Triangle? Bordered by the Champs-Élysées, Montaigne and George-V avenues, it includes the most prestigious boutiques in the fields of haute couture, ready-to-wear and luxury: Louis Vuitton, Dior, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Kenzo, Ralph Lauren… and many others.
In the same vein, the Palais Royal district, between the Louvre and the Opera, is the stronghold of the great creators of fashion and luxury. To be found in particular in the Montpensier and Valois galleries that border the garden, but also around rue Saint-Honoré.
And the Grands Boulevards, you might say? It’s impossible to miss. The Haussmann-Saint-Lazare-Opéra square, the real commercial heart of the capital, brings together the department stores and a number of brands that are constantly evolving.
For a pinch of eclecticism, you will prefer Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Sèvres-Babylone district and the rue de Rennes: essential! From the biggest names in haute couture to the “classic” ready-to-wear brands and the more confidential designer boutiques: nothing is missing.
Fashion, design and shops full of charm: welcome to the Marais, which is full of trendy and often avant-garde addresses!
Finally in a more bobo style, don’t hesitate to stroll around So-Pi (South of Pigalle), the new climbing spot. On the program: village atmosphere and vintage shops, some of them famous.
During the winter sales, book your shopping trip at the Palym Hotel.

Hôtel Palym - illuminations de Paris

Christmas in Paris: and the light was there!

We don’t call it the City of Light for no reason! As the end of the year approaches, Paris is working hard to honour this title. Staying in the capital in December means enjoying a unique experience: seeing the city light up with a thousand lights as soon as night falls. Hotel Palym shows you where to admire the most beautiful Christmas light decorations in Paris.
Not surprisingly, it is through the Champs-Élysées that the Palym advises you to start your discovery of the illuminations of Paris. Since November 22nd, they have put on their clothes of light. A shower of red leds hanging from the 400 trees on the avenue every evening highlights the view up to the Arc de Triomphe. The effect is still as striking as ever!
The surrounding streets are also worth a look. Feel free to deviate to the side of the elegantly decorated avenue de Montaigne, or the suburb of Saint-Honoré, which is decorated each year with festive lighting. Boulevard Haussmann is not to be outdone, with the windows of department stores transformed into small enchanting theatres.
Your steps will then certainly lead you to the Place Vendôme. This crossroads of luxury will once again this year be adorned with a forest of sparkling fir trees that will cast a thousand sparkles on the windows of jewellery stores.
Another place, another atmosphere, on the left bank, Saint-Germain-des-Prés welcomes you to its Christmas market, the smallest in Paris. A friendly stopover to be extended by a walk in the illuminated streets of the district.
Do you want some more? Then go to Bercy Village where there is a forest worthy of fairy tales, populated by bright animals hidden in the trees, as well as an enchanted singer. Magical and only 10 minutes by subway from the Palym Hotel!
Book your “bright” stay in Paris.

Hôtel Palym - Téléthon

The 2018 Telethon

You can’t miss them! On December 7 and 8, the yellow banners of the 2018 Telethon will be flown throughout the capital. During your travels, take the time to stop, enjoy the activities on offer and, above all, make a donation. Like 5 million people every year, don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this unique popular event.
The meeting is held every first weekend in December since 1987. The Telethon is a unique event. See for yourself: every year it mobilizes thousands of volunteers and millions of French people. All of them have a single objective: to raise as much money as possible to enable the AFM-Telethon association to continue its fight against rare genetic diseases, in particular to finance research and help patients.
How does it work in practice? Around 20,000 events organized throughout the country and even beyond. And you will be surprised by the incredible imagination that this great celebration arouses. From selling clothes to sporting challenges, from sieve throwing to bridal wear, everything is good to unite the public and glean a small piece.
The capital of course is not to be outdone with more than 100 demonstrations listed in the Paris region. But the must if you are in Paris is to go to Place de la Concorde. This is where the bubble housing the television set will be installed. Many personalities will be present alongside this year’s sponsor, Pascal Obispo.
To make a donation, call 36 37 or go to


Nitro Circus ignites AccorHotels Arena

The fans were looking forward to their return, it’s done! Nitro Circus freestylers are back on the road for 11 show dates, including two in Paris on November 30 and December 1, 2018. This new tour, entitled You got this Tour, will pass through AccorHotels Arena. A word of advice from the Palym Hotel: book your seats now!
They were only expected on Friday, November 30. They will also be there on Saturday, December 1st! Victims of their success, the Nitro Circus have added an extra date to their European tour, in order to satisfy the (numerous) audience of the AccorHotels Arena in Paris.
But who are these young people who attract crowds in this way? Nitro Circus brings together the best international athletes from FMX, BMX, scooter, skate and rollerblades. Some are X Games medallists and Nitro World Games champions. At their head, Travis Pastrana, FMX superstar, icon of extreme sports and brilliant conductor of this new tour.
For 2 hours, Travis and his troupe will delight you with a totally crazy show, where prowess and challenges are followed by ever more daring ones. This year, the leader promises us an even more explosive show, new and completely crazy tricks, but also devices as amazing as they are crazy! Crazy and funny, Nitro Circus constantly pushes the limits of risk. And the public is asking for more! So Travis doesn’t back down from any idea, offering even bigger ramps, even more dangerous waterfalls, even if it means a few rough landings. But it would take more to make these athletes move back, coached by an over-excited Travis to offer the best of themselves and to go even further!
Get ready to be amazed and recover from your emotions at the Palym Hotel.


Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau in Paris

As the frost falls on the capital, we know that we can count on him to warm hearts: Beaujolais nouveau returns from November 15. A small event that is celebrated each year as it should be throughout the capital. And even right next to the Palym Hotel!
On November 15, the guest of honour will be him, regardless of the address where you have decided to sit down for lunch, an aperitif or dinner. Beaujolais Nouveau will brighten up your meal with its beautiful red dress and make your evening sparkling.
Because, who says Beaujolais, says conviviality! Imagine: a plate of cold cuts or a good dish of traditional French cuisine, friends, a bottle to drink, all in the warm interior of a Parisian brasserie, where the inimitable guile of Paname’s waiters resonates. This is a 100% authentic moment to experience at least once if you come to Paris!
The terroir side, very little for you? No problem, Beaujolais is also popular in the trendy places of the capital. And it goes perfectly with the culinary innovations of New Food, healthy and trendy.
But in fact, what’s so special about this Beaujolais? It is a primeur wine, i.e. one that announces the new vintage. We like it for its youth and freshness, for its fruity aromas. And the French are not the only ones who appreciate it! On November 15th, this wine of friends will be celebrated in 110 countries. The Japanese, they say, love it.
Note: Beaujolais Nouveau is best drunk fresh and… in moderation!


Rolex Paris Masters: tennis in the capital

When you stay at the Palym Hotel, you have the chance to stay next door to one of the largest rooms in Paris. So what does AccorHotels Arena have in store for you this early fall? One of the most important tennis tournaments in the world, nothing less! From October 27 to November 4, the Rolex Paris Masters brings together the best in world tennis in the heart of the capital.
The Rolex Paris Masters, ex-Open de Paris-Bercy, is the reference indoor event of the end of the year! The largest and most important of its kind organized in a room in the world. Under the leadership of the French Tennis Federation, this tournament has brought together the world’s best players since 1986!
Will you be in Paris with your children during the All Saints’ Day holidays? Don’t miss this opportunity to take them to see some of the top 50 players on the planet. It must be said that the Rolex Paris Masters is the last ATP Masters 1000 tournament of the season. It is therefore one of the nine most important competitions on the ATP circuit after the four Grand Slam tournaments. And it’s the only one to be fought indoors.
Players wouldn’t miss it for anything in the world, because it can make a difference: qualify them for the Masters tournament or even boost their ascent to the number one spot in the world.
The French are generally well represented. But will they be able to match Guy Forget, the first Frenchman to win in 1991, Sébastien Grosjean, who won in 2001, or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who won the title in 2008?
You can already book your places during the day, in the evening, or both. For details of the program, visit

The constellation of La Villette will seduce music lovers and young audiences. It opens the door to all the cultural offers of the park, from the Philharmonic to the Cité des sciences.
At the edge of the city and even beyond, the constellation of the Porte dorée is articulated around the Palais de la Porte dorée, the banks of Lake Daumesnil and ends at the Grand Rocher du Parc zoologique de Paris.
If you are a regular at the event, you will be delighted to know that this edition explores new places, never before invested during Nuit Blanche.

Hotel Palym Techno Parade

Techno Parade celebrates its 20th anniversary!

How about taking advantage of the off-season to plan a Paris escapade? In September, the capital has everything to please: pleasant weather and an anthology of major events special back to school. Among these, the 20th anniversary of Techno Parade 2018 is certainly the event not to be missed. On September 22nd, it will move in the streets of Paris!
Free and demanding. Here are the two key words of this giant parade dedicated to electronic music. Twenty years ago, in 1998, when the first Techno Parade was launched, they were already leading the organizers. The objective then? Democratize and support the expression of techno culture in France. You’ve done it with flying colors.
Today this event is expected each year by thousands of participants (350 000 in 2017!) from all over France. After all, it’s not often that we have the opportunity to party in broad daylight in the streets of Paris! And this year, the crowds should beat records to celebrate 20 years of commitment and music!
If you stay at the Palym Hotel, you will have no trouble getting a front row seat. You will not be able to miss the parade and its dozen floats made by organizers, labels, artists or collectives related to electronic cultures.
Then, at nightfall, it’s time for afters, scenes open to the best electro sounds of the moment. The programming promises, as usual, a beautiful mix between legendary bands, international headliners, artists in vogue on the French scene and revelations. Everything will be there: sets and scenographies of high flight, performers and deluge of decibels.
More information will be available on the event website:

September 15 and 16, 2018, what are you doing? In Paris, France and Europe, most monuments and cultural sites celebrate Heritage Days. In this 35th edition, they open their doors, offer visits, workshops, shows, meetings. It is free and sometimes a unique opportunity to discover certain places.
You have just arrived and settled into your comfortable room at the Palym Hotel. You are now ready to attack the Parisian heritage. On these Heritage Days, treat yourself: you may not have the opportunity to visit the Senate or the Elysée anytime soon! But before that, not far from the Palym hotel, what would you say to push the door of Bercy’s ministry or to discover the Cinémathèque française? On the left bank, the Sorbonne invites you for a journey through its history and architecture while the greenhouses of the Luxembourg garden give you an exceptional visit. And a little tour around the buildings of the Chinese embassy or the Mexican embassy? Have you thought about that?
You will have understood it, you will have only the embarrassment of the choice among the monuments, buildings and gardens participating in the operation. All celebrate in their own way the theme of this 2018 edition entitled “The Art of Sharing”. One hundred years after the end of the First World War, these European Heritage Days carry a strong message: to enable today’s European citizens to better understand what brings them together, to recall the values and history they share.
Book your heritage stay in Paris and find the detailed programme of these two days on the website:

Picasso exhibition 1932. Erotic Year

The Picasso-Paris National Museum, in partnership with the Tate Modern in London, is dedicating an entire exhibition to a whole year of creation. The year in question was 1932, a particularly prolific period for the Spanish painter who already enjoyed a good reputation. Essential if you are staying in Paris between October 10 and February 11,2018.

Chronological, the exhibition “Picasso 1932. An erotic year “follows the artist’s creative process step by step from January 1 to December 31,1932. Chronological, like a diary. Didn’t Picasso say:”The work you do is a way of keeping your diary”? Thus through the 110 paintings, drawings, engravings and sculptures presented, through the hundred or so archival documents, the visitor is invited to enter into the intimacy and daily life of the painter. And then the obvious: the link between personal life and artistic creation.

In 1932, Picasso was 51 years old. He is preparing his first retrospective, which will be held in June at the Georges-Petit gallery in Paris. This deadline keeps him on the edge of his feet and gives him a very strong creative impulse that will give birth to a lot of paintings. Some of them will remain among the artist’s greatest works, such as Le Rêve or the series of bathers. Most of these very sensual paintings depict Picasso’s young mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter, a muse that he will represent over and over again.

“Picasso 1932. An erotic year “presents the important production resulting from this creative whirlwind, 25 canvases made between January 2 and March 14. So many creations that question the relationship to surrealism. The exhibition also reveals another theme dear to the artist: Crucifixion.

These strolls are an opportunity to admire works on display, to attend performances and conferences. But also to discover Paris from a new angle. Don’t miss: on the banks, the Berlin collective Invisible Playground, which offers a participative work; the musical rendezvous under the Canopée des Halles; the sound and visual creation of the collective Mu and the reproduction of a film shoot at night by the collective (La) Horde.

To allow you to enjoy this Nuit blanche safely and serenely, transportation will be available all night long, and many restaurants will remain open until the early morning.
