Paris is a tourist capital and the month of May is very popular with tourists. Book your accommodation as soon as possible to benefit from the best rates and avoid complete accommodation. Please specify during your reservation that you come as part of the Daoist Studies Conference.

We recommend the hotels listed below, which are located in a friendly and touristic area (Montmartre, department stores, Opera), near the Saint Lazare railway station which allows you to go directly to the site of the Conference Nanterre University in 20 minutes (see Transportation).

    Very friendly and lively youth hostel in a modern building. Lockers are available under the beds, but you must provide your own padlock. Group reservations (10 people) are possible at the e-mail address: JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING.

    Attention transport: this hostel is also in the center of Paris, but not in the Saint Lazare district. From Roissy - Charles de Gaulle Airport, take RER B - Sud to Gare du Nord station. Coming from Orly airport, take RER B - Nord to Gare du Nord station. The route is also different to reach the conference site: take the RER B - Sud line from Gare du Nord to Châtelet-les-Halles, change to the RER A - Ouest line to Nanterre-Université (about 45 minutes during peak hours).

If there are no rooms left in these hotels, don’t hesitate to contact with the organizers to JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING, they will suggest other possibilities.
