Lots of shops and quieter than Gare du Nord

I enjoyed using the pink line from Magenta, Gare du Nord to this station. It is much quieter and less busy. You can take the scnf train to Versailles from here too.

The station is not only architecturally very interesting to observe, it is extremely functional. Trains may not be as reliable as the Swiss trains, but they are very reliable.

If you are meeting friends or planning a trip, or journey around Paris, it is a convenient location to arrange to meet. Accessible by Metro (several lines) and trains. Plenty of restaurants and hotels nearby.

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 original structure still stands and at the back you can see the view that Monet had when painting Gare St Lazare and the steam trains. Other than that, I only visited the station to get to and from Gare du Nord (or use the Metro)!

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
