Attention Non-Shoppers: Go for 1) the Beaux Arts art glass interior dome, 2) the panoramic rooftop view of Paris, 3) the cafeteria on the 6th floor. You will be happy. The Shopper/s you are with will have sticker shock, and you will be prepared with these other distractions. In case you HAVE to shop for souvenirs, the largest selection in... More

We went to this store for a particular product which we found immediately. Then we walked forward into the most amazing store we have ever seen. Looking up it was looking into a jewel box. We made our way to the roof top with a most beautiful vista of Paris across from the Opera. Don't miss this place even if... More

Loved the atmosphere of the store. Atrium interior was beautiful. Had famous hot chocolate at Angelina's in the store Do not miss it if you like chocolate! Views from the rooftop deck were spectacular.

Want to avoid the expensive lunch places when shopping at Galleries On Blvd Hausmann And have a nice little lunch break at very reasonable prices, then try their 5th self service cafeteria. For 5 Euros you can pile a plate full on delicious, low calorie crudities with a choice of dressings instead of spending 12 to 15 Euros for the... More

Rubbernecking at the sparkling crystal dome and ornate, glitteringly scalloped upper galleries from the ground floor in this grand flagship building (there are 3 smaller others in the city) had to be shared with similarly gawking hordes. As we rose to upper floors, it became less claustrophobic to appreciate the magnificence of this amazing interior, as well as the huge... More

This place has everything you may have ever dreamed of in a shop - a huge array of designers have their wares on offer and the prices range from the incredible to the reasonable depending on the label. It would be hard to visit this place and spend less than half a day - there are various restaurants and coffee... More

Very touristic, very crowded and overwhelming. We have visited Galeries Lafayette also in the past but maybe this was our last attempt to do so. Surely you can find anything you wish, but are you sure that this is the place you want to search for? Paris being the metropolis of fashion and with amazing and well-designed stores and boutiques,... More

Amazing 6 floors, just worth it for the Dome and rooftop view over Paris, from the restaurant you can see an amazing view of the Sacre Coeur Church high on a hill. There is an amazing air ballon installation there at the moment
