For a whole four weeks, starting on January 10th, the winter sales return and with them the frenzy of brands and bargains. Paris, a popular shopping destination, offers you many ways to enjoy this occasion. The Hôtel Marais Bastille team shares its favourite shops with you to help you take advantage of the great deals available.
A few steps from the hotel
The Bastille and Marais districts are renowned for their vitality and their numerous shops. In the first, you will find mainly artisan and artist workshops and ethical and eco-responsible businesses, while the second is renowned for its trendy concept stores. If you want to check out a department store, it’s about twenty minutes on foot to the BHV Marais and its vast selection of fashion, accessories and decor items and brands. Finally, it would be a shame to miss out on the charm of the capital’s famous covered passages, such as the Passage Vendôme and the Passage du Grand Cerf. In these venerable and beautiful glass-roofed arcades, well sheltered from the weather, you’ll discover bookstores, artisans, antique dealers and more.
The great Parisian classics
Very well served by public transport, the Hôtel Marais Bastille offers the ideal starting point for discovering the most famous shopping locations in Paris. The department stores La Samaritaine, Printemps Haussmann and Galeries Lafayette are, of course, foremost among them. Then, there’s the Rue Saint-Honoré, known for its luxury leather goods, and the Place Vendôme, where high-end jewellers have their prestigious outlets. Want to splurge on designer clothes? Head to the Golden Triangle. Defined by the avenues Montaigne, Champs-Élysées and George V, this part of the capital is where the biggest haute couture brands have established their shops.
Shopping in Paris is a joy, especially during the sales periods. Book your stay at the Hôtel Marais Bastille and make the most of it!
