- WHERE TO STAY
Hotels near the Eiffel Tower are spread over a wide area. No hotel is literally on the doorstep of the Eiffel Tower as it is sited in a large parkland area on three sides and the River Seine on the other.
Hotels within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower that are within a budget comfortable with leisure travellers are mostly located to the south of the Eiffel Tower along the route of Line 6 of the Paris Metro.
There are some further possibilities just to the east of the Eiffel Tower around Invalides, normally more expensive than that found south of the Eiffel Tower. This area around Invalides is more central, you can even walk across the River Seine and be walking up the Champs Elysees in ten minutes or so.
All of the popular hop-on hop-off sightseeing buses as you would expect have a major stop in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Airport connections to the district are not great, although Air France run an airport bus from Invalides to Orly Airport.
The RER Line C train service runs along the south bank of the River Seine past the Eiffel Tower and connects at St Michel with Line B that goes to Charles De Gaulle Airport. The RER Line C train service also gives you frequent direct trains to Versailles.
If you stay in this area it has a 'local' non touristy feel away from the centre. You'll get glimpses of real Parisian life. A few of the hotels publicise rooms with views of the Eiffel Tower, often you have to pay a supplement for such rooms.
