Where To Stay

One of our must-haves on our lodging list was a balcony with a view of the Eiffel Tower. We narrowed it down to these choices:

Our top choice was the Pullman Hotel, which consists of 23 rooms, all of which have amazing views of the Eiffel Tower. Unfortunately, with it being such a small hotel it was fully booked during our visit!

Fortunately, we were able to book a wonderful 2 bedroom AirBNB with an amazing view of the tower. Situated in the 16th arrondissement, it was walking distance to the Pon de Bir-Hakeim Bridge & the Eiffel Tower. Get $40 off your first AirBNB rental when you use this link!

If you want to splurge Beyoncé style then consider a room at the Shangri-La. Larger suites have breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower.

The Hotel Plaza Athenee is another blogger favorite for it's balcony views of the Tower as well as amazing breakfast spread!

On Our Must-Do List

Some of our favorite places and photo op locations (do it for the 'gram!):

Carrousel de la Tour Eiffel

There are a few carrousels around the Eiffel Tower, including this one which is right at the base of the tower. You can also indulge in some nutella and grand marnier crêpes or an ice cream cone while you are there!

Avenue de Camoëns

This cobblestone street boasts an amazingly framed view of the Eiffel Tower.


The Louvre

Champs Elysées

Ladurée Paris Champs Elysées

Galeries Lafayette

The Top of Sacre Couer

La Maison Rose in Montmarte

A beautiful pink & green cafe that sits at the top of Montmarte and is the perfect photo op!
