This place gives the BEST view of the Eiffel Tower, especially in the night. The view is breathtaking and you can see the full tower in all its glory. The ambiance is fantastic with a lot of people hanging out there, making it lively and fun. One time there someone brought along music and a few couples started dancing making... More

Le Palais de Chaillot is one of the best places to see the Eiffel Tower with its sparkling lights at night. In itself, the garden of the Palais is just as beautiful. The water jets have different synchronizations and are really nice to watch. From the stairs, you can get that famous photo of the Eiffel Tower (photo attached). There... More

As I mentioned in a review of the Eiffel Tower, it is better enjoyed about two hours before sunset with a fantastic dinner picnic in the grass next to the immense fountain at le Palais de Chaillot. Before you go, get yourself a bottle of wine (don't forget a wine key), stop at a bakery for a small baguette and... More

Great building that provides amazing views of the Eiffel Tower and the Paris area. At the top you can see the Parc du Champ, the military academy, and the Eiffel Tower as well as many other buildings. Don't know exactly what some of them were. There are vendors around the area and depending on the time of day you can... More

Most hotels accept 48 hour cancellation from time of check in, around 2 PM two days before. Not here! you have to cancel by midnight the night before (so more like 3 days, practically, around 62 hours if my math is correct) or get charged the full amount. No exceptions! Beware!

Come to view the Eiffel Tower and to share the experience with thousands other people, but do not expect the deco statues to be as glorious as they are on the cover of a recent "Eyewitness: Paris" book. Unfortunately the gold is chipped or mutilated and the statues look very sad, indeed. If this square could be as cared for... More

You can get a great view of this from the Eiffel Tower and you can get a great view of the tower when you are standing at the Palais de Chaillot!
