  • I came to the Forum with American friends who had known the former and he must hide the fact this new Forum is undoubtedly a success. I don't understand if negative opinions. Anyway new Parisian site, that takes a bit of the ordinary, has always had critics. Then over time you get used, such the "pyramid of the Louvre" in his time, or "Opera Bastille"! Abundantly wavy wing-shaped roof lets light through. It gives clarity to the large public space that reassures and allows to easily see the architecture made of overlapping blades with the louvered glass. The structure metal sand color is for me successful. Security checks are quick with the staff around. Outside, the site of construction of the "gardens Nelson Mandela" and the "adventure land", is still not finished, it is frankly deplorable while it lasts! It seems that we will see the end soon, because they are finishing of green spaces. We are then lowered into the commercial part by this grand staircase, escalators being down. L ' space at the arrival of the stairs is called "The Patio Pina Bausch". We must also recognize that inside, accommodations are almost done. The shops are spread over 3 levels. The main level is animated while others are a bit deserted. MONOPRIX is installed at the top level against the vast entrance side garden there are certainly many shops including the traditional brands of ready to wear, shoes, perfumes, etc. There is something for all tastes and all budgets. However the aisles and galleries of traffic are well signposted but it is not easy to navigate and find his shop. Must so walk, walk and walk before finding. The most convenient is to locate his shop on the plan, then we must seek. "The Champeaux" restaurant is located at the north side street with an outdoor terrace level. It offers a signed card Alain Ducasse, it is for marketing, but the framework is open style "display airport" and Nice. The menu is varied and the prices are for me enough deterrent for the clientele of the centre. If not, there is also the traditional food channels. Side street Shepherd, an original space the "ZA" is a café that calls itself "urban and literary" (sic) with shelving books, with seems it, cultural events. It is a large space with long tables and chairs... brasserie style, but with trays served on a treadmill! It's like in "modern times" Charlie Chaplin... In conclusion, there is still some improvements and especially complete external works and this site could be a success.

  • If you spend a few days in Paris, don't waste time at the Forum des Halles. certainly the architecture of the halls can be interesting, but the rest is sad. you will find shops... but nothing sensational...

  • This is the best shopping center in the heart of Paris! Here you can find, especially areas to sit down, catch of a long trip and not excessive pressure or luxurious. I found it pretty much improved after so many years.

  • I love the place. This mall in the true heart of Paris has recently been upgraded. It's open 7 days a week and you can find all you want. Also plenty of restaurants and cafés around and a huge park, not mentioning all historical places, including Nostradamus observatory.
  • Big mall. You must visit if you love shopping. Most of the famous France brand cosmetics are here. A must visit for tourist.
  • It's very delightful and beautifully built. I recommend it even if no desire for shopping.
  • Really big shopping center. I enjoyed the visit. Great availabity of stores, but quite unclear. A
  • Everything is available there but it's like maze you always comeback at the same point and there is no too much signs in English for someone who don't speak French it's very hard But it total very good forum near everything you need

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
