What area is the Eiffel Tower in Paris?

The Eiffel Tower is located in the 7th Arrondissement of Paris, a neighborhood that oozes wealth, privilege and charm.

This district has been fashionable since the days of Louis XIV, when the highest French nobility took up residence here, and continues to be known as one of the top richest neighborhoods in Paris.

So it comes as no surprise that some of the most luxurious hotels in France are located here, each boasting prime views of the Iron Lady – from the side, from the front, from balconies and atop roof terraces, you’ll have unobstructed, amazing views of all of Paris. 





Staying in the 7th Arrondissement

While staying here isn’t cheap, the experience is priceless.

In addition to the iconic Eiffel Tower, the 7th is home to a whole host of other famous Paris landmarks: the Champs de Mars, Musee d’Orsay, Musee Rodin, Hotel des Invalides and more. There are wide avenues, beautiful sidewalk cafes for people watching, world renowned restaurants to grab dinner and open air food markets to explore on sunny afternoons.

Whether you’re a first time visitor or a die hard lover of Paris, there’s no where more glamorous to base yourself than on the Left Bank.

Many of the hotels here are located in historic mansions, with beautiful architecture details, white glove service and spacious suites. There’s great transportation too, with lots of metro, bus and RER lines criss crossing through!

Without further ado, here are all the Paris hotels with prime views of the tower. 



Best Hotels in Paris with a View of the Eiffel Tower

It’s funny that we view the Eiffel Tower today as a symbol of Paris. When it was originally built for the 1889 World Fair, it was heavily criticized by designers. It was also meant to be temporary!

Lucky for us, the wrought iron beauty is a permanent fixture. Here’s a complete list of beautiful Parisian hotels with views of the Eiffel Tower.



1. Balzac Eiffel Tower

Hotel Balzac is for the history and culture lovers. Originally built in the 19th century for the director of the Paris Opera, the luxury hotel lies just off the Champs-Elysées and near the Arc de Triomphe. A selection of its beautifully designed rooms have romantic skyline views of the Eiffel Tower! Honoré de Balzac himself spent his final days here.

Visiting Paris – Travel Checklist

We took a red eye to Paris from JFK. You can find cheap Paris flights from low cost carriers almost all year round – check for flight deals here.

Paris has some of the best museums in the world. I spent an entire summer living in the city, visiting different churches, museums and historic homes and still couldn’t get enough. If you plan to sight see, look into a Paris Pass – it’s a great value! The pass can be purchased for multiple days and allows you to skip the line at 60+ attractions. See the full list of included sights and attractions here.

Lastly, be sure to visit Paris with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, your phone gets stolen, or a flight delay leaves you with nothing but the clothes on your back, travel insurance will help when you need it most. During our recent trip, riots in Paris shut down the city center and forced a closure of all the main sights (the Louvre, Versailles, etc). Get a quote for your trip here.
