Stay in the Gare du Nord - Gare de l’Est Paris neighbourhoods for transport reasons.
Eurostar Paris, TGV, Thalys, Marché Saint-Quentin, rue de Faubourg Saint Denis, Canal Saint-Martin
London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin and all places in between. Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est, gateways for Parisians to Europe and Europeans to Paris on the Eurostar, TGV and Thalys trains. Big city train station characteristics and culture are all-pervasive in this noisy neighbourhood. But no one beats the French when it comes to making monuments out of functional buildings. Both stations are architectural masterpieces of concrete, stone, steel and glass.
A 5 minute walk from both stations is Marche Saint Quentin, Paris’ largest covered market. The surrounding streets vividly express this global city’s cultural fusion and none more so than rue de Faubourg Saint Denis with its diverse shops, bars and cafés. And for contrast the calm and eclectic Canal Saint-Martin neighbourhood is to hand.

Canal Saint-Martin and its bridges are a wonderful amenity and counterpoint to the grand train stations.
