We were very excited to visit here. The shop itself was fantastic, so many choices of books, every genre or subject you could want.
They also have a space to read upstairs which is very cosy. However the shop is very busy so it is...More
As an English nerd, this place was like a slice of heaven. A tremendous number of great books, complete with little reading nooks upstairs. However, the actual experience of browsing was not very pleasant because it was so crowded and noisy! Not worth lingering for...More
Understand that it will be busy, but don’t let that deter you from going. It’s popular for a reason. Although there are shops that have some English books, this one has undoubtedly the most. It also has a nice little history of its own.
Since I read the book 'Books, Baguettes and Bedbugs' a few years ago now I have wanted to visit this iconic Parisien bookshop. I was very excited as I walked in ( no queue at all ) but as I wandered around I became aware...More
This bookstore, which is not the one where Ernest Hemingway hung out and not even in the same general location, attracts tourists like bees to honey. Its famous name was adopted in 1964 partly as a tribute to the original store owned by Sylvia Beach,...More
Perhaps because it is such an iconic store, it hasn't bothered hiring friendly staff. I had cause to speak with 3 staff, 2 American, 2 English. A male could barely look at me when i asked where i could find a particular book, a young...More

This bookshop is located near the majestic Notre Dame de Paris and is full of people trying to purchase books,grab a drink or feel the history of the place. Other than that it's not such a great sight.
I love love love this bookstore. If you like books or are an avid reader I highly recommend visiting this bookstore. The bookstore is huge with different floors. Each floor has a different selection of books in every genre. There are also different rooms in...More
Yes the books are in English. They have a wide selection of second-hand book, which are of course quite cheap. New books are rather expensive ( you could the same books cheaper online). Howwever it depends on the book you're... More
Yes the books are in English. They have a wide selection of second-hand book, which are of course quite cheap. New books are rather expensive ( you could the same books cheaper online). Howwever it depends on the book you're buying. I spent a lot of money here but, with the quality of the books and the in-shop experience, I don't regret any of it!
Yes, there are children's books, but it is not a large Barnes & Noble-y kids play area book-reading section. This is a super-cool, old school bookstore that has some amazing books, old and new favorites, and something for... More
Yes, there are children's books, but it is not a large Barnes & Noble-y kids play area book-reading section. This is a super-cool, old school bookstore that has some amazing books, old and new favorites, and something for every bibliophile. Definitely take a peek! :-)
