Loved the 7th. We rented an apartment in the 7th for two months. There is hardly place more convenient and still a neighborhood. Our apartment was a block and a half from the MEYRO station. This made getting anywhere a breeze. A block away were groceries and bakeries to do all our food shopping. After two weeks we were recognized... More

We stayed in an apartment on Rue Cler and really enjoyed our time in the 7th arr. It is more expensive to stay there than some of the other arrondisements, but not much. Be on the lookout for the Lavirotte buildings that are near Rue Cler. If you google Lavirotte and 7th arrondisment, you can find a list of them... More

I decided to book my Hotel in the 7th arrondissement because I wanted to be able to walk to the Eiffel Tower. I found this neighborhood to be very safe to walk in even at night. There were many great places to eat and they all opened late.

We have stayed in this area quite a few times in winter and summer. It is great area with lots of major sites to see - Eiffel Tower, Hotel des Invalides, Musee Rodin, Champs de Mars, Ecolle Militaire and Musee de L'Armee. You will also find the UNESCO building and the amazing Rue Cler. There is a fantastic view of... More

I love the 7th. It's got great restaurants, good shops and boulangeries and of course...it's where the Eiffel Tower is!

There's shopping, history galore, parks, nightlife, and connections to everything else Paris holds. So glad we picked this area as our base!

Having been to Paris many times this was our first rental in the 7th arrondisement. It was a perfect location for our visit. If you stay close to the base of the tour eiffel you are located within walking distance of the Seine, the Bateau Moches and the Egouts of Paris plus many cafes and markets especially Rue Cler.

We just finished a 15 night stay in the 7th, and while Paris has many good neighborhoods, you will be well served if you decide to stay here. Around the base of the Eiffel Tower or the Orsay, things are crowded, but most of the other sections of town are crowded around their major attractions too. Once you move away... More

Paris has twenty arrondissements (administrative boroughs) which are known by their numbers and start with the 1st Arrondissement, at the centre of the city. Every tourist will, surely, visit that famous tower which is located in the 7th arrondissement. As a result the area is packed and I find it hard to see much of this district as beautiful, simply...

This review is a little biased as I've only ever stayed in the 7th. Having said that, it has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Paris. Rue Cler is a great market and there are plenty of restaurants to choose. Bars are good and not the most expensive in Paris.

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
