Unprofessional staff, pickpockets everywhere, and very low security. Thank god this place is only ever used in transit, as otherwise I would completely avoid it.

I was there early in the morning and it was very cold. The station isn't like some I've been in where you wait in a nice warm building and then walk outside to the train when it's time to board, it's essentially a huge covered outdoor station, like a hay barn. The layout is not user friendly, so if you're... More

I travel through Gare du Nord 3 or 4 times a year. It is not the safest train station in France but it is much better than before. It is a also bit cleaner. There many shops, bars, restaurants including a Starbucks!

Not a great experience. Nowhere to sit. Couldn't find a single chair. Filthy dirty. Freezing cold. Tried to lean against the wonky house and attracted so many beggars that I nearly forgot about the man snorting coke off a handrail or the drunks arguing over a cigarette. Inside the building is freezing. Only the floor to sit to take the... More

First major stop if you travel from airport although finding ticket office was quite challenging. There is funny building just in front of entrance.

This is basically one organizational disaster and not up to standard for business travellers. The restrooms are not indicated. There are only a few chairs so 99% percent of the people need to stand and wait. And when your train is delayed yet again, you can enjoy working on your laptop standing up with wifi that doesn't work in the... More

Encouraged by Eurostar to "Skip the taxi queue" I booked a Cabforce taxi yesterday to "whisk us away" when we arrive at Gare du Nord this morning. On the train this morning I get a text telling me that my booking has been declined (even though I have a booking reference) because they are too busy. That is a useless... More

The station is very well sign posted and easy to navigate. The only down side is the 80 cent charge on the toilets.
