A big space with many shops! You can find a list of shops and restaurants And the access to it is very easy and simple, you can come by metro to station Halles

There is so much better places to visit in Paris. This is a miserable intimidating place which I visited late on a Friday afternoon. Shops are nothing special full of fast fashion, and gifts that could probably be brought in most cities across Europe. The stench in certain aisles was awful, and the nearby Metro station seemed to be full... More

Maze of shops selling fruits, vegetables, meat and fish and cheese. A good Parisian experience. Would recommend this place to all visitors.

It's a shopping mall and a commuter place in one. Some well known brands have their shops here (middle end ones). Good place to visit if you need some basic clothes.

With all the beautiful architecture created by the French, this mall is quite a contrast. You go underground, several floors - it is quite open with plenty of space, but feels half empty (Monday noon), a few people/gangs hanging out, and just the normal selection of brand stores, cinema etc. But also a pool. Absolutely no place to sit and... More

This enourmous shopping mall is looking better now than they have renovated most of it and added an extension. A lot of great stores. The only bad thing is that it's a real maze inside. A lot of floors! A good shopping place in Paris.

Some pretty scathing reviews on TripAdvisor. Personally I enjoyed our shopping trip and found the architecture interesting. At the time we visited there was a great deal of building work ongoing so things are still developing in this area. Overall a decent shopping experience and I think some of the reviews are a little harsh. Worth a visit in my... More

Huge, mega ugly, cheesy. Unless you want to experience the recreation of a 1960s shopping mall, underground, with guarded entrances, terrible signage and the WCs. We finally found one hidden deep within - .50 E. admission, one working urinal at waist height, broken air dryer requiring attendant to rush in with a roll of paper towels. A desecration especially when... More

We were told this shopping mall area was the biggest and best in Paris. It's not even completed construction yet. Shops were closed. Small and not much selection. Confusing layout. Toilets that you pay for and are stinky and dirty. When it rains the ceiling leaked everywhere. Go to the champs elleyses for shopping not here.

We shopped there two times. It has some unique stores we don't see here in the states. Plus, it has a Cafe McDonald's where you can get fresh cappucino and pastries just like at a real Paris cafe. Weird but fun.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood 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.
