Top ways to experience Les Halles and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Oh how I wish that I could have seen the market stalls before they were torn down. The photos are lovely and they functioned very well, protecting the market from the elements. But now we have a big underground suburban train station (necessary) and an ugly shopping mall that suits no one except the suburban teens who hang out here because they are bored. Recent efforts to improve the look of the mall have not helped. It is still an eyesore.

This is a great place to come shopping or to escape the incredible heat, as there is air con.

All the usual high street shopping can be found, as well as a few others.

The area is great, as it’s right near lots of cafes and eateries.

Situated on the site of the former Les Halles market, this is a large, modern shopping mall. There are lots of eateries around as well as some squares and parks, along with many shops. Metro access is direct as well. Bustling with activity, but it's a vast departure from the original Les Halles that was torn down in the early 1970s.

A nice walk through the streets of Paris. About 10 minutes walk from Lourve museum. Vibrant area around the shopping centre.
The centre itself is big, probably same size as Blue Water!

Good luck in finding the loos.

Somehow I had an idea in my head that Les Halles would something different as a shopping mall,….but it isn’t. It is just a giant shopping mall like any in the UK with similar brands etc. Nothing special, unless, of course, you like shopping malls!

Although the location of this hotel is good as it is situated opposite Metro Station and near Market and it provides free facilities of drinking water and Coffee, the check-in time of this hotel is very bad as it is already 3.00 p.m , but there is no guarantee of you getting room even by 5.00 - 5.30 p.m, despite booking an advance. Beside the staff of the hotel is rude.

Open daily, 24 hours. Getting there: metro station Les Halles (exit inside the building).
Les Halles is a multilevel shopping mall, modern, huge and exhausting. Renovated recently, it's now famous for its canopy with louvers to maximize the shade and is designed to collect rainwater, which powers a fountain that cascades from its peak down to a babbling man-made brook.
The mall is the embodiment of 21 st-century urban design and overlooked by the spindly Gothic St. Eustache Church and located near popular shopping pedestrian free rue Montorgueil. The most important thing is not to get lost in this jungle of shops, for this, remember the entrance from where you entered the mall.

Well the new design is, new. And that is about it. Because once you get inside, the mall is just the same old, same old. Not a great place to shop, although FNAC can be practical. And the mall provides a big entrance to the suburban railroad, the RER. I wish they could bring back the old glass and steel market place.

Les Halles itself was a disappointment. Under that cool building is an ordinary shopping mall with many of the same stores you'd find in any US mall. However, the area around Les Halles is definitely worth a visit. There are lots of ethnic restaurants and little shops.
