The architecture is interesting. But it is not very clean. The shopping area that has been set up has not attracted great brands. As a "product", I don't find it as successful as the Union Station in Washington DC for example.

The Gare St. Lazare is a busy train station in Paris handling SNCF and Metro trains. It is said to serve almost half a million passengers each day! Thats' a whole load of people. Busy, bustling & hustling, it is one of the train stations used for travelling within Paris but also to neighbouring banlieues as well as other cities... More

We used Gare St. Lazare when we went to Giverny to see Monet's House and Gardens. Station is relatively easy to get to via the Metro and buying tickets to Giverny was straightforward. Station is modern and bright and there are various places to buy food and drink including a Starbucks and a Burger King. There are also clean toilets... More

The Gare St. Lazare was one of the favorite places for the impressionist painters to paint what they saw there. So it is quite interesting to visit this place and see how it looks like today.

Well, I got a little bit bored in Paris after the week of my stay there, so I decided to go on a day trip to Normandy. You guys can buy e-tickets! But I had no pc, so..The trains which terminate to this direction are exactly on Gare St Lazare. It`s very tidy and beautiful inside, makes the great difference... More

You may visit this place if you travel to cities close to Paris. Not beautiful. It has a lot of places for shopping. Beware of misinformation in the electronic monitors.

We had a connection to make, when traveling by train from Reims to Rouen - we had to get from Gare de l'Est to Gare St. Lazare, and discovered that the easiest way to do that was by the RER "E" train. The train ride itself was very short, but it was the walking on either end that took up... More
