Love this Gare. It's so easy to move around in it and you don't get lost. Lots of shops for all budgets but not overwhelming. Two supermarkets and a pharmacy as well. Worth making the gare alone a destination.

This station is not as known as Gare du nord, but it's quite impressive as well! It's full of stores and it has several floors. I used it to go to my hotel in asnieres, and it's very well located

The St. Lazare station is less crowded than most other Parisian stations, yet it needs more seating. The crowd kept standing for ages looking at the board indicating the train arrivals and departures just to know the platform numbers and there was a little number of allocated seats for passengers.

This station is situated in a very pleasant area with plenty of bars and restaurants plus the famous Printemps department store. The building is well kept and the concourse spacious. The SNCF staff are excellent especially if you need a ticket and cannot speak French too well. Overall a very pleasant experience.

This station is actually quite nice! It's huge and the architecture is really Parisian! Inside there's a nice shopping centre which includes a Burger King (yummy). In front of the station, they are two art displays which are actually quite nice! Also they're currently redoing the pavement and the road so in the next few month it should be even... More

St.Lazare is a large terminus station which has 27 platforms and it offers an intense service of suburban and mail line trains operating in a northerly direction... More

For a railway station this building is really nice and quite easy to find your way around which is important. However the toilets are not easy to find and are a long way away from the rail lines. Almost missed the train running back from the lose to get to the station
