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 happened upon this Gothic church when checking out Les Halles. It is not mentioned in tourists books so not many people there. The pipe organ was beautiful. I like this church much more than Notre Dame, which is full of people. A lovely church to check out. It is awe-inspiring!
We passed by and were caught by the graffiti and the colorfulness inside. We loved it, the building itself is full of paintings and home at the same time of several artists you can actually watch working.

"Magnificent historical building"
reviewed yesterday by Peter67Toronto
This tower, not often visited by tourists is quite beautiful. When I see it, I am transported back in time when alchemy was practised. This was also one of the original starting points for pilgrims heading to Santiago de Compostela on the "Camino deSantiago" or otherwise known as "The Way of St. James".
I'm not a huge art lover - but i went with a friend and i was actually blown away by the variety of art here. Of course i've heard of Picasso so it was amazing to see so much of his work up close and in one room. I could have stayed longer than 3 hrs! Top tips - buy...
Had the three course set lunch menu. Food was excellent and service was very efficient, although a little more formal than Boutary and ASPIC, which were the other two notably good restaurants that I enjoyed on my recent trip. That aside, MUMI is a very, very good restaurant and worthy of a place on anyone’s Paris itinerary.
In particular, the...
We walked in anticipating to have a good meal and walked out having ate one of the best meals of our lives. The decor was modern and the staff was very nice; they did not have a ton of wine-by-the-glass selection and only 2 taps, but they did have a variety of full bottles. The food was unbelievable. For apps...
It had a 5 guys burger joint feel but much, much better. I been craving a burger the last couple days of our European vacation and I cane across ROOMIES. The burgers are to die for, plus while you wait you can have 1-2 cold beers to make waiting a little bit easier. Also the fries are sooooo good.
The rave is real. We ran across this restaurant during our stroll through neighborhood. Found it has a huge number of reviews and decided to check it out. To our dismay, there was no spot available for dinner for the same night. We were able to however, secure a spot for lunch the next day.
We returned and ordered all...
This hotel was the best place I stayed at during my whole trip! It was so quiet since it on a pedestrian street. Even though Paris is big and crowded, the hotel was an oasis! The air conditioning and all the amenities were excellent. The shower was wonderful too. It’s in a convenient location near the centre Pompidou and the...
We stayed at this hotel for one night at the beginning of our trip and 2 nights at the end. It was a pleasure to stay here. The rooms were spacious and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and I still miss the chocolat au lait. I wish it was something I could get in America. Our every question was...
"Flight delayed so I got a lovely night by Les Halles."

Air France gave me a voucher for a hotel by the airport. Rossie is a small town and it’s boring... so I looked for a place close to the RER. 10 min. Walk from the hotel to line B that has a direct train to CDG. Anyway this place turned out to be a gem. Centrally located, really comfortable, nice...
Quaint hotel close to river, metro station and many attractions. Rooms typical for paris. Staff pleasant and helpful Stayed here twice and enjoyed it both times.
there is a wonderful bakery nearby to enjoy a cafe and croissant1
Ok, so this will be our go-to hotel for Paris from now on. Outstanding location for Les Halles, The Pompidou and rue Montorgueil. Elegant contemporary decor, good breakfast and very charming staff. Yes, it’s compact but intelligent layout and high end fittings made it feel quite luxurious.
