Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
We always make a point of walking the RUE di Rivoli when we visit Paris!
A stop at Angelina Tea Room is de rigueur and the Galignani book store has the very best selection of English language books to peruse.
Stroll through the Tuilleries, visit the Louvre Museum, or just shop a bit!
"A pleasant, off the beaten path attraction at Les Halles"
reviewed 12 October 2018 by RocknRodV
Spent a pleasant hour inside Saint-Eustache. Easy access through Les Halles metro station. Although the church has suffered from the ravages of times, it’s very encouraging that restoration efforts are under way and with fantastic results. Nice pipe organ, very few people inside.

This tower is on the horizon and visible from much of the city. The church was torn down during Haussmann's redevelopment in the 19th Century, but the old tower lives on, now in the center of a small square.
Saint Germain l’Auxerrois is a beautiful church on Place du Louvre. It is also in the same complex as the offices of the Mayor of the 1st. Arrondissement of Paris. Each Arrondissement has a mayor - I suppose they act as council officers to the Mayor of Paris.
I was staying not far from the church and as I passed...
Had an advance ticket for the Pompidou but probably didn't need it. Just visited the modern art collection on the top floors; it was well displayed and comprehensive if lacking any particularly famous painting. Didn't do the Cubism exhibition on the first floor but only because of "museum fatigue."
I still think the outside is hideous and an "eyesore." The...
We had some wonderful macaroons at this fabulous café in Paris. The macaroons served at Monsieur Benjamin were first class and tasted rather divine to say the least. The coffees were also of a very good quality and the service was nice and friendly. Overall a vert relaxing afternoon experience at this rather lovely café.
The atmosphere was wonderful, cozy and warm. The food, spectacular - although it would have been helpful if they had let us know that the little disk they give you is so you can go up and get your order when it's ready at the window. Lot's of different kinds of pizzas. An extra wait person might help get drinks...
Very near Les Halles, so a short stroll to the Louvre and the other central attractions of Paris so one doesn't need endless Metro trips, even an easy to stroll downhill from the Gare du Nord in 20 minutes. We had a room on the 5th floor, quiet, clean, beautifully furnished and excellent bathroom. While not the cheapest hotel we've...
Myself and friends stayed here for a few nights. It is really well located beside the Louvre & the Seine. The staff were lovely. And our room was very comfortable and clean. It was small obviously cos it’s Paris but well worth a visit.
The rooms are beautifully furnished, very comfortable bed, plug access points are easily available across the rooms, all amenities are to a high standard and best of all the staff are fantastic. They will always go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I stay in Paris regularly for business and the only time I do...
If you want to find Paris skip the big chains and find a boutique hotel. Hotel Snob is a small a chic hotel in a great location. Dozens and dozens of cafes in the walking district of Paris. 5 minutes walk to Isle de la Citi and the Left bank. Great staff, nice rooms and modern bathrooms. If you want...
We have spent one night here and we are already enamored of this lovely hotel. First off, the location is excellent. Walking distance to well known points of interest (e.g. Louvre, Tuilleries, Ponte Neuf, L'Orangerie, St. Germaine) and easy access from CDG by train. Metro close by.
The hotel itself is warm and friendly and nice to look at. The...
