With more than 1,500 hotels in Paris, it can be hard to find the best spot. While budget is undoubtedly a factor, geographical proximity plays a role too — maybe you want a home away from home near the literary haunts of the bustling Latin Quarter, or you want to escape the city’s tourist draws for the more local feel of the Canal Saint-Martin. If it’s your first time in the City of Lights, you may also be craving a postcard-perfect view of the Paris’s top tourist attraction from your hotel room.

If that’s more your speed, we’ve got you covered with a list of the 20 best Paris hotels with Eiffel Tower views. The list is in order of most to least expensive, and runs the gamut from luxury hotels with private terraces and well-appointed hotel suites, to charming boutique spots and budget hotels that won’t break the bank.

The Paris outpost of this multinational hospitality brand is housed in the former residence of Prince Bonaparte in the upscale 16th arrondissement. The 100-room iconic hotel features a bar and two restaurants, one of which is the only Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant in France.

Situated on the tree-lined Avenue Montaigne, the Hôtel Plaza Athénée is the pinnacle of Parisian luxury.

There are various room options to choose from: classic single room, superior room, deluxe double room, junior suites, suites, and signature suites. For enviable Eiffel Tower views, be sure to select the Eiffel Tower Suite, L’Appartement, the Haute Couture Eiffel Suite, or the Royal Suite.

Distance from Eiffel Tower: 4-minute walk

6. Hôtel San Régis Paris

This small, high-end area sits between three of the city’s most iconic boulevards: the Champs-Élysées, Avenue Montagne, and Avenue George V. This is where you’ll find the San Régis, a luxury hotel housed in a former 19th-century hôtel particulier (private mansion).

It’s just a stone’s throw away from the Champs-Élysées and Arc de Triomphe, and both the Royal Suite and Presidential Suite offer views of the Eiffel Tower and Paris skyline.

Many of their premium rooms and suites offer views of the Eiffel Tower, including Suzanne, Henri, Yvonne, and Annette.

Average cost per night: $500
Distance from Eiffel Tower: 22-minute walk, 17-minute Métro ride, 10-minute taxi

The 5-star Hôtel Raphaël draws inspiration from the glamour of the Roaring 20s, or les années folles. You’ll find antique furniture throughout, along with exquisite wood panels and hand-painted murals. Location-wise, you’ll get the best of both worlds: proximity to the Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Élysées (less than a 10-minute walk!) AND rooms with Eiffel Tower views. Of its many accommodation options, the Country Setting Room and Boudoir Room are the ones you’ll want to splurge on for views of the Eiffel Tower (each also comes with a private terrace). But then again, even if you don’t snag one of the rooms with a view, you’ll still have access to the sublime rooftop terrace with views of the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Sacré Coeur.
