3 Boutique Paris Hotels With a View of the Eiffel Tower
Ah, Paris the City of Lights! Who doesn’t dream of a romantic getaway to this magical city? And, what couple wouldn’t love to stay at an intimate hotel with a view of the Eiffel Tower?
Here are three affordable properties with a gorgeous view of the Eiffel Tower:
Hotel Balzac – With a stay at Hotel Balzac, you’ll be centrally located in romantic Paris, steps from the famous cabaret Lido de Paris and minutes from Arc de Triomphe. You are also close to the Louvre Museum and Notre Dame Cathedral.
This turn-of-the-century belle epoque town house is an excellent choice for romantics, as this is among the most charming in its class. The neoclassical decor inside is steeped in tradition, but the look is upbeat and never stuffy.
The hotel’s most noted feature is the Pierre Gagnaire restaurant (three Michelin stars). Month long waits are common, but guests of the hotel, which is separate from the restaurant, can get takeout meals.
A sixth-floor executive room has a grand view of the Eiffel Tower, as do some rooms from the third floor up.
The Balzac star shines most brightly in its suites. The Royal Suite is a stunner with a large balcony and literary collection worthy of the hotel’s namesake. It also has a great view of the Eiffel Tower.
This discreet property boasts some of the better guest rooms in the city. This well-kept secret is certainly a gem to be discovered in Paris.
4 Stars, 70 Rooms, Rates Starting at $431 double
Hotel Keppler – In the Trocadero and positioned almost exactly midway between the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower in the 16th arrondissement, this tantalizing town-house hotel offers more style than most in its class.
This hotel’s chic, well-cultivated eclectic design is breathtaking, however it does lack a restaurant. Still, the bar has a club vibe and room service operates nonstop. Exemplary service is a hallmark, and the staff is multilingual. In this neighborhood, gem-clad poodles are paraded regularly up and down the block. (This is Paris’ version of Manhattan’s Upper East Side.)
Recreational options provide a pleasant surprise for most arrivals, with a sauna and Turkish bath at guests’ disposal, both of them, along with the modest gym, open around the clock.
Here, the accommodations are the highlights, each individually decorated with superlative taste and fine French fashions.
The classic rooms may be too small for Americans. For just a bit more, it is best to book an
executive room with a roomy sitting area, large queen bed and good storage space.
The five large suites are among the nicest in the city, with private balconies and terraces overlooking the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Room service never stops, and the turndown service comes with chocolate.
The suites are especially impressive, but the overall residential appeal and notable service are reason enough to justify a splurge, even if you have to go elsewhere to eat.
4 Stars, 39 Rooms, Rates Starting at $323 double
Raphael Hotel Paris – Two blocks south of the Arc de Triomphe in the 16th arrondissement, this charming city hotel competes at the top of the Parisian second tier of deluxe hotels. The atmosphere is country club, but the service is personable.
A traditional dining room, an outdoor terrace and a bar round out the dining options. Guests have use of a small fitness room with exercise machines, sauna and hammam.
Going past a winding staircase and up in a glass-paneled elevator, guests reach a full-circle roof terrace with eye popping views of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, which the hotel sits directly between.
There are standard (Classic) rooms with their share of Louis XV and XVI reproductions. Deluxe (Boudoir) rooms have many of the same furnishings but set in a more opulent setting.
The junior suite-like Alcove and Salon rooms and the six classes of suites are progressively grander versions of the Boudoir room. The State Suite faces the Eiffel Tower and boasts the luxury of three bedrooms, four baths (including one with steam room and whirlpool), and a fireplace.
This hotel ranks with other prestigious traditional hotels in the area such as the Lancaster, and has a largely repeat clientele.
5 Stars, 83 Rooms, Rates Starting at $514 double
