We recommend that you book your hotel early, as September is a rather busy period for Paris.
The workshop venue is located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, near metro lines 14 and RER C. See the Transportation section for more details on transportation to the conference venue.
Hotels in Paris: what to expect
Paris has over 1500 hotels, with an average of 50 rooms per hotel (most have far fewer rooms). There is no specific conference hotel for QuantAlgo workshop. Below we give some general information about hotels, as well as a short list of hotels close to the IRIF.
Hotel rooms in Paris are generally small. The official star rating regulates amenities and room size. Double rooms in 4 and 5 star hotels are required to be at least 16 square metres and rooms in 2 and 3 star hotels are at least 9 and 13 square metres. 3 star hotels must have televisions, 4 star hotels must have air conditioning and internet access, 5 star hotels must have room service. Some 2-star hotels can meet most of the 3- or 4-star requirements (such as internet access and television) and can be just as welcoming and pleasant. Hotel pricing depend on the location, and hotels in the central arrondissements (1-8) will typically be more expensive that hotels a bit further off the tourist radar. If you require a particular amenity, ask the hotel before making a reservation. Book early if you have a specific hotel in mind.
Even if you have paid in full before arriving, you may be required to pay the “taxe de séjour” (occupancy tax) upon arrival, varying between 1 and 5 Euros per day and per person, depending on the star rating of your hotel.
You can find numerous rentals on AirBnB and other sites. Bed and breakfast options can be found on “Gites de France”.
