Because of all the construction, this mall is a maze. Each store looks the same and with the signs pointing exits in several directions, you end up walking around the same area several times! We got lost and couldn't get out! The mall really had no soul. You could go to any mall in any country and it would have... More

Due to all of the renovations, it is easy to get lost. Good luck finding an exit. It's a typical mall, with all the florescent lighting. If you've come to paris to shop do it somewhere else.

The only part of Paris I visited and did not like. Ugly, soulless and teaming with people. If you're after a good shopping experience, don't bother with this!

Ended up in there from the RER in to town from the airport. Couldn't find a pram friendly way out! If you don't have strength to carry a pram (and baby and luggage) try to avoid. Also my daughter stood Ina puddle of pee near the exit (when we eventually found a way)

We visited 18 months ago and visited again to see how the works are coming along. It looks as if it will be massive but should be a stunning modern building. We did venture inside but most of the shops were shut as it was late on a Sunday afternoon. I look forward to seeing the new complex when it... More

After shopping in the district around Galerie Lafayette Forum is a considerable step down. It does not help that the mall is being totally refurbished, so there are holes in the ceiling everywhere and parts of the mall in various stages of reconstruction. It just feels a bit trashy, but if you like your strip mall shopping then you might... More

My favourite hotel in Paris is near the Forum des Halles, and so I've spent a lot of time there over the years. On my most recent visit, in early June 2015, I was interested to see that the entire area around the Forum des Halles has been ripped up and is being redone, so that the beautiful garden is... More

If you are looking for a mall in Paris, this is it. Not as pricy as the Hausmann area. Quite a few stores, but the layout is odd. You don't see an underground shopping centre every day.

This thing is huuuuge and has millions of shops in it! Still .. Nothing special. Seems old, full of people and most shops are very expensive. If it's raining this is surely a nice place to be ;-)

If you like cavernous malls full of international brand stores, this is the place for you. I actually dislike malls with a passion and found this one to be even worse than most simply because it was rather dim and echoey being all underground. And, it was hard to tell, but I think it is under construction which may have... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
