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.
#1: Its free! FREE!
#2: Its five stories and numerous rooms occupied by dozens and dozens of eccentric and creative French artists whom are up and coming, going nowhere, or maybe just failing miserably financially. You'll see weird art you'll love. You'll also see weirder you'll hate. Some artists are technically skilled...and some artists should go back to art school....

Henri de Miller's strange sculpture "Listening" precedes an introduction to one of the most beautiful churches in Paris, Saint-Eustache. The only explanation for the name of the sculpture is an advertisement for organ concerts in a Church. Saint-Eustache stood in the center of a huge market-the belly of Paris, which was demolished in 1969 and built an ugly shopping center....
This was one of our favourite streets in all of Paris during our two month stay. It is so ingrained in us that small is expensive (specialty shops)and big is cheap, (supermarkets) - but so not true in Paris. This is what we so loved with Rue Montorgueil, there is such an array of shops, we could spends hours, exploring...
We came across this church on the way to the Louvre. Turns out it's located behind it. The tower was reminiscent of another tower that we passed on the way here (Tower of Saint Jacques).
We didn't have time to go in but the church itself looked nicer from the outside.

We passed the tower on the way to the Louvre. It was something that caught my eye since it was really tall and very eye catching. There was also a statue at the base of the tower. There was also a garden at the base.
I really would've liked to stop by but we were running late four our timed...

Lovely food - great options for allergen requirements and vegan/ vegetarian. Take away also available or tables inside and mainly outside. Service very friendly and helpful. Very reasonable price and portions good. A great lunch close to Pompidou centre.
We found this place on our first night in Paris and were able to get a table. It’s a small place but has seats for about 4 groups inside and 5 outside. We did the build your own burger which had a lot of options. They cooked it to our specific request. We shared fries and there were plenty for...
We had the best stay at this hotel. Cannot fault it. Everything was perfect, even when Paris went into lockdown due to Covid-19 they were helpful. It's the best location possible with easy access to the metro and plenty of places to walk to. We will definiately stay here again should we visit Paris again.
"Perfect location, minutes from the Louvre and within walking distance to many prime tourist attractions."

The hotel was built in the 1700's. It is well kept and charming. The service is pleasant and professional. They serve breakfast in your room, which is a nice touch. Easy walking distance to the Louvre and several other points of interest.
Fantastic location. Right in the heart of Paris. Very clean. Covid measures made us feel safe. Comfy bed quiet sleep. Great shower best of all was the air conditioning! Will definitely be staying here again.
We came by bicycle to Paris from the Netherlands and they offered to store our bicycles safely during our 3-night stay, which was very convenient (the only hotel in Paris I could find). The staff is very friendly. The rooms are good with good air conditioning. The location in the center is excellent. Only French breakfast where we would have...
