Typically Parisian atmosphere awaits you, nice to stroll along the Forum galleries, there is a pleasant garden with a large nice terrace, there is also Paris big market, les Halles, until 1969; also a musical library and the Forum showing films.

I went into this shopping center cause I was in holiday a few days in Paris and I was needed a phone sim card to get internet. We've got inside this Orange store to buy the simcard when this black guy called Bruno said in a very rude way: Simcard 10Euros with one month blablabla I was there to ask... More

The forum des halles is no longer this ugly glassy mall that used to be like a mole in one of the oldest quartier of paris. It s been renovated and shines bright with brand new architecture. Even the shops look different . It s also secured by numerous guards and walking distance from historical centers of paris to visit.... More

It's still under construction. The new roof is complete and looks OK. Anything would have been an improvement. A lot of new marble has been installed inside, but much of the interior is still under construction. The stores look the same. Still a sad dreary underground mall, 1970s American style. Maybe it will go out of business like so many... More

Hello, We are sorry if you had a deceptive experience. As you mentioned, the works will be finished by 2017! Most of the Forum des Halles has been renewed (the ceilings are now higher, more light in the Forum, a more qualitative customer journey etc.). We hope that you can come again once the shopping center is totally finished! Have... More

It's the greatest mall we ever saw. Hundreds of shops (the usual ones), cinemas, theatre, sports facilities on many floors, most of it underground. We didn't feel very well: like prisoners rounded by steel and glass. The big roof above the main entrance was like a heavy weight over us. No day light. Technically very impressive with all the railway... More

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.
