Created in the 2001 and arrived today at the XXIII edition, the Saint Germain des Pres Jazz Festival has become much more than just a musical appointment. Music, extraordinary performances and jazz artists who will perform in truly evocative locations. The Saint-Sulpice church. The Odeon Theater. The Grand Amphithéatre de la Maison des Océans. and, again, Monnaie de Paris Cour d’Honneur, Marie du 6E, the Theater de l’Alliance Francaise.

These are just some of the places, theater of concerts, events, meetings, exhibitions and performances by young artists. Because, as mentioned, the Saint Germain des Pres Jazz Festival is much more than just a musical review. A real multicultural and artistic meeting, of which jazz is the backbone.

The event is, today, of absolute international appeal. Like, after all, the international artists on the bill. It is no coincidence that, just on the occasion of the Festival, Norah Jones held her first concert in France. Over the years, Manu Dibango, Michel Portal, Lucky Peterson, Kenny Barron, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and many others have also taken part.

Visiting Paris in this period, and the splendid district of Saint Germain des Pres, can reserve pleasant surprises. The exhibition takes place almost entirely along the 6éme and 5éme Arrondissement over the course of twelve days.

Thanks to the metro, you can easily move to any corner of the city at any time. For this reason, given the rather high prices of the area, we recommend finding a structure

In the XVII arrondissement, in the area Parc Monceau e Palais de Congress there are excellent rather cheap facilities. The area is rather quiet and is well served by the metro. Le Trente is really an excellent solution; at about 70 € a night you will find friendliness, cleanliness and quite comfortable rooms. The Hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Brochant metro station. From this link, the best offers for the hotel.

In the same area, district Batignole if you are a B & B solution lover there is the excellent Magnolia. It is really an excellent Bed and Breakfast. Prices are higher, however, on the other hand, breakfast is included.

From this link you can see the best properties in this area.

Another excellent solution, with excellent offers, is the central-eastern area on the river bank, that is the XI arrondissement. Area, moreover, quite central and really well served by public transport. Hôtel Exquis by Elengancia is our favorite. One of the best in the area for quality-price with rooms starting from 80 €. Book well in advance to guarantee your “place in the sun”.
