Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It is hard to miss the big city hall. It is grand and seems much older than it's 150 years, but in magnificent shape. We have been to events here as well as good art and history expos.

    Sadly, this was under renovation when we visited, but the building is beautiful nonetheless. This is one of Paris' hallmarks that must be seen in person

    I didn’t go inside the palace but I walked around the outside. It is a very beautiful building and looks quite old. It is definitely worth walking around and seeing the architecture.

    Really wonderful and interesting building. The mural in center dome showing French commerce with " the natives" runs 360 and is "informative," fun, and very non-pc. Great temporary exhibits. Restaurant top floor very good

    Across from the Louvre is the city hall building for the 1st district, a noble classic imposing building that sometimes has special expos.

    The Hotel de Toulouse is the representative seat of the national Bank of France, originally a city palace built by Francois Mansart. The Bank can be visited about roughly on one Saturday each months done by guides from Paris Historique or during the Journees Patrimoine (typically the 3rd weekend in September). The highlight of the tour is the Golden Gallery, but the council chamber can be visited as well. The golden gallery is just breathtaking full with statues, gilded in gold and paintings,

    This historic building is open to the public on two days a year. It has a rich history and well-restored rooms where milestones in France’s history played out. Napoleon Bonaparte’s brother then his mother stayed in this house. Charles de Gaulle’s office was also here.
    It is now the site for France Defence Offices.
