BHV MARAIS, or BHV, is a popular, historic Paris department store facing the Hotel de Ville. You can join the droves of customers in perusing this interesting store, which is especially busy on weekends. You will find a comprehensive offering of home furnishings and improvement departments. Some spend hours on end browsing men's and women's fashion, jewelry, books and gifts, and several other departments. This site is part of the Groupe Galeries Lafayette and has also opened several other shops in France and in Beirut, Lebanon. Access the store through the Hotel de Ville Métro station.

  • This store is much more down to earth than the higher end Paris department stores. I happened to be there during a little sale where a couple items of each brand were marked down, so that was nice. Th...  read more »
  • The BHV is perfectly nice. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, the interior doesn't compare to Galeries Lafayette or Bon Marche, but the prices and brands carried are generally on the lower end, which is a plus. It has a wide selection (clothes, art supplies, furniture, and food, etc.), that is somewhat well curated, so if you're passing by and in the mood for some reasonably priced shopping, this is the place for you!
  • You'd only give the BHV a good review if you didn't know the store in its glorious pre-Galleries Lafayette days, when the prices were about half what the moguls of retail think they can get away with. The old basement was a total treasure trove of millions of unexpected delights for anyone interested in DIY, bricolage, etc. Today. the here range is less than half of what it used tot be, and the prices are more than double. If you want to pay less for the same DIY things, take a five-minute walk across to Beaubourg where there's a credibly large branch of le Roi Merlin with greater range and more sensible prices.
  • It's a great department store. It's best features are the free and clean public bathrooms upstairs, and the selection of non typical postcards of Paris (pictures of typical breakfasts, candies or sweets). Cool, if you like that kind of thing. Otherwise it's your regular department store with makeup, perfume, lingerie etc.
  • Less stressful than Galeries Lafayettes and a great range of fashion/accessories.
  • You can find most of the stuff you need. DIY, decoration, gifts, tools. Practical really
