Some day in the future, this could be an underground museum, the star focus of being the labyrinthine passages. It is just so confusing, with so many "Sortie" and Metro lines. The passages are somewhat narrow and old too, so they get creepy when deserted, and really unpleasant if crowded. And I'm not even factoring in the construction work ongoing.... More

The mall has some nice shops, but it is very easy to get lost in and no signage. We could not find our way out! Some interesting artwork. Stop by if you are in the area, but don't make the extra trip.

This shopping centre is undergoing a massive redevelopment and is currently one great big building site. Would of been easier to close the whole place down, completed the task in half the time and just leave access to the metro and RER station below. A lot of the signs were misguiding, leading to dead ends where sections of the shopping... More

Went there expecting a nice mall, we were wrong. The mall is not only ugly as sin, it is smelly. Stay clear of this 'mall'.

This is a huge shopping mall in a basement and it lacks fresh air. The place is simply too big - if you want to visit a certain shop you need to walk for ages, if you are lucky enough to find your way in this labyrinth. Needing a restroom I had to walk for 15 minutes and pay half... More

This is a large shopping center near the Chatelet des Halles metro station. The shopping center is underground, and not particularly attractive in appearance - it is quite concrete and industrial-looking. In addition, when we were there (in Nov 2012), the mall seemed somewhat dirty (e.g., there was lots of trash and dust and debris on several of the steps).... More

Fairly grungy place. Lots of homeless people in the area. However there are some nice modern retailers in the shopping center, good deals and two movie theaters. Outside around the cafes, there are far far too many smokers. Cigarette butts smell and smoke making the air quality very bad.

I LOVE to shop and Paris was no exception! I found the prices pretty reasonable here. I bought lots. I really like the store New Look. Great Mall and great location!

This shopping center, located in Chatelet, is not so amazing to the point of going there on purpose. But, if are hanging out in the neighbourhood, it's nice for lunch break and window shopping. There's actually a great shop there, «Maisons du Mounde». Check it, is really beautiful and they also offer the catalogue, that is quite interesting.
