How to organize your short stay in Paris?

April 15th, 2020

The golden rule here, whether your short stay in Paris is for business or pleasure, alone, as a couple or with your family, for a night, a weekend or several weeks: don’t take it at the last minute!

Paris is a city that can quickly become expensive. And the best offers (travel, accommodation, etc.) are often proposed well in advance. Transport, accommodation, visits, period, professional stay, comfort… The Cadet Residence explains how best to organise your stay in the French capital

Plan your trip to Paris

In order to optimize your time during your short stay in Paris, there are some things that it is better to check, see booking in advance.

To wander freely around Paris, the Paris Visite card is perfect.
You can also buy metro tickets, so prefer to buy books which are cheaper than single tickets, but keep in mind that they run out quickly. For those who don’t plan to walk much, the card is more advantageous.

Museums and monuments

There are many museums and monuments in Paris. However, most of them have at least one closing day per week. So be very careful, and if you have places you want to glaze, check in advance the opening days so you don’t miss out! It would be a shame not to be able to visit your favourite museum during your short stay in Paris .
You can take the opportunity to buy your tickets in advance, so that you don’t lose time in the queue once you get there!

When to visit Paris?

Many will tell you that the City of Lights can be visited all year round, and they will be right!
However, spring, summer and the festive season are often favoured. Some outdoor activities are indeed more pleasant under the sun!
However, if the off-peak periods (November, February, March) offer you sometimes sadder weather, the rates are more advantageous, and there are fewer people, to better enjoy the places you visit! And then, under the rain, Paris is so romantic…

Organize a short professional stay in Paris

If your stay in Paris is part of a business trip, the most practical option would be to stay in a hotel close to your meeting place, seminar, training course, trade fair… Choose an establishment offering reasonable rates, spacious rooms, as well as modern and comfortable facilities. The friendly welcome is a plus!
A little advice to get better prices: book in advance? You can try to make a reservation at the very last minute, but then you run the risk of not finding a room worthy of the name, or of paying the full price.

The necessary equipment for a good stay :

In order to be able to rest well, and relax between two days of work, you will need at least :

  • Free WiFi connection
  • Spacious, comfortable and well soundproofed room
  • Fully equipped bathroom
  • Flat screen television

Plan your short stay in Paris in a few clicks

During your stay, you won’t want to miss the city’s monuments and places of interest. Such as the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, the Pantheon, the Marais district, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysée, or the department stores (Printemps and Galeries Lafayette) on Boulevard Haussmann.

Don’t miss the city’s most famous museums such as the Louvre, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, the Georges Pompidou Centre, the Picasso Museum, etc.
To be able to visit everything without spending half of your time in transport, choose accommodation with a central location close to transport.
You can also choose a dynamic area with many restaurants, brasseries, bars, markets, shops…
