Disappointed at Printemps, time was much better spent at Galeries Lafayette. Upon going inside the grand ceiling attracted our eyes. It was full of tourists, but since we are as well, who cares? The staff there were visibly friendlier and more welcoming as well. If we had more time we'd look at every floor. Next time we would spend a whole afternoon there for sure!

Tip: Look out for a map in your hotel for a coupon, which you will get a free gift on a 50 Euro purchase. We picked a shopping bag.

Spectacular building but staff could have been more helpful - in particular the guard at the door of the Home store who would not let me in a few minutes before closing time to find my daughter who was still inside and waiting for me.

Amazing decor, beautiful building and luxury brands all in one place. This place is over crowded with tourists! Just another shopping mall if you ask me, nothing special apart from the great decor. I'd rather shop from the streets, going shop to shop than squeeze myself in here and queue just to get into the shop. However the Macarons shop in the basement is TO DIE FOR. Love their macaroons and packaging! :)

Stunning architecture - very busy though as there was a SALE on. A more pleasant experience than shopping at Harrods or Selfridges.

The place is lovely and the shopping was even better! It can get overwhelmingly crowded, especially in the women's building, but for some brands (like Longchamp), there are actually counters on the higher floors which are less crazy. There's a gourmet market too, with food that's to-die-for. Pierre Herme stands in here as well!
