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

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
