Impressive site

The cold showers of sprayed water outside the Hotel de Ville were a welcome addition to our hot wals across the city. The beach volleyball courts were good too!

Yes it Paris Town Hall, it is a decent building with nice architecture inside out. The area around is used for different events - beach volley is the one I encounter most.

The place is near to a rainbow community area. Lotsa of bars and restaurants for you to choose . It will be good if you can take some time to travel this place for some mid range brands shopping . It is a crowded and full of energy area

This is one of the most beautiful Hotel de Ville buildings that we have seen around France. The architecture is grand and the interior is splendid.

This is quite some town hall. The building is superb, so typically Parisienne. There were several beach volley ball courts laid out in front of it during our visit which made for an interesting contrast.

The Hotel de Ville will show up in most guide books or online as city hall for Paris. However it is much more than that. There is usually some exhibit going on inside and the large square next to it hosts events year round. So admire the architecture, ride the carousel, watch kids play in the huge bubbles the bubble...

Hotel de Ville de Paris is one of the oldest buidlings in town, it is really beautiful + this is a very good place for meeting up ! It is really central with the Quais de Seine just a few blocks away, and some pretty good restaurants / bar on Rue François Miron. A must see!

My husband and I along with other seniors were on tour in Paris before embarking on the River Seine. We had an opportunity to take some amazing pictures of the Hotel de Ville. It is quite massive and breathtaking. Very picturesque from all different areas. We took day pictures as well as night shots which were all amazing. A must... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
