  • I love the BHV, I buy my Nespresso coffee as my bed, my Kettle, my lights and my shorts, my Arrow shirts,... because there are generally of good quality and all course the downside of high prices but what I love above all those are the my additional stores. I just bought the Nike BJV store complete kit Temple Street to go do sports in gym (shoes, socks, pants, tee shirt). All at a reasonable price compared to the Go Sport des Halles. The other Appendix a my preference called the street of glassware Niche and sells a huge selection of items for dogs and cats of the bags of kibble to poop bag through the baskets, leashes, wet wipes for the legs, shampoos... I also love the roof top bar and its exceptional view of Paris with two flats a long wait and an excessive price (taking the cheapest bottle of wine is an option to try).

  • Each visit to Paris, we try to cruise through the huge BHV store, located across from Hotel de Ville. It is very entertaining, and a treat on a rainy day. We always end up buying something: decorative...  more »

  • Love BHV 👍. They have everything. Love their kitchen linens section. Famous hardware section in basement! The Caisse workers are a little cranky but the salespeople are usually very helpful
  • Good quality products. Well known designer brands. Was tempted to go on a spending spree, but managed to control myself. Lol
  • Shopper's paradise. Your one stop shop for everything from high end fashion to light bulbs.
  • A bit less luxurious than Printemps or Galeries Lafayettes...
  • Great department store that covers the gym block and more across from Paris' main city hall. You find everything you want at BHV, from DIY to chinaware, bedding, books, luggages, designer perfumes and more in-between and on the sides! You even have free restaurants and coffee shops from a relatively cheap cafeteria to a deluxe tea House or burger joint. There is even a Starbucks! Most staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

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.
