The very first day when I walked from my hotel and hoped to reach the iconic 324 meters tall Tour Eiffel on foot. The moment I reached Seine River on a cloudy morning I saw the classic Paris Eiffel Tower right in front of eyes imagining how high is the Eiffel Tower! Looking it beyond those leafless I didn’t fall in love with Eiffel Tower instantly, well sometimes falling in love isn’t that easy. As soon as I stepped every inch closer to the Eiffel Tower, I started to like it more and more.
One can get the best view of Eiffel Tower from anywhere in the Paris city considering the fact how high is the Eiffel tower. No matter where one stands in the French capital, they will probably get the best view of Eiffel tower. The majestic Eiffel tower can produce gorgeous photographs from all the angles bearing in mind how high is the Eiffel Tower. Let it be from across the Seine river like the one I clicked on a cloudy day, or from the rooftop of the hotels with Eiffel tower view. As soon as you step right below it, that is another moment of realization how high is the Eiffel Tower. Then it hits us hard that’s probably one of the reasons it is one of the most photographed landmarks in the world.
I stayed in Hotel Palais de Chaillot which was excellent for its great location giving me the best view of Eiffel Tower from its fifth floor. I highly recommend Palais de Chaillot for anyone to get a vibe of the true Parisian neighborhood and some amazing restaurants nearby. The train connectivity at the nearby Trocadero station was another plus for me. This one of the those best cheap hotels with Eiffel Tower view. I could see Eiffel Tower at night shinning right outside those gorgeous French windows. Also, Right outside the station was Cafe du Trocadero giving me another best view of Eiffel Tower. It was one of those typical restaurants with a view of Eiffel Tower and local Parisian aura so if you’re looking for well-tried restaurant look no further and head to Cafe du Trocadero and enjoy a glass of wine or a cuppa coffee (like me) there. By the way below picture, I clicked from the same restaurants with a view of Eiffel Tower like this on a cloudy morning.
Indeed I clicked tons of Eiffel Tower pictures, although the Eiffel Tower picture with clouds covering it will have to be my favorite. As it gave me entire one of the most memorable and best view of Eiffel Tower that too all in a single frame with all of the beauty of Paris captured. Got only one day in Paris?

#Where to stay
If you’re looking for hotels with Eiffel tower view then I highly recommend Palais de Chaillot. They have an easy check in and check out function, super helpful staff, located amazingly close to Trocadero – known for the best view of Eiffel Tower. Beyond all these, a cozy hotel, typical Parisian neighborhood and best train connectivity, Palais de Chaillot will be a perfect choice for you (or a couple). If you’re going with family, you might want to check out with them for a bigger family room. I was given a room at 5th floor which gave me amazing Eiffel tower view from room window itself. So if booking a hotel with Eiffel Tower view from the room is your preference, then I will recommend staying on the top floors.
#Where to Eat
If you’re like me who like to soak in the local vibe of the place you’re visiting, you are going to love Cafe du Trocadero. I used to start my day with a hot cappuccino from one the best restaurants with such an amazing view of Eiffel Tower.
Doesn’t this is the best view of Eiffel Tower which looks like directly out of a painting where a tower is covered in clouds from across a sublime river? Want more from the magnificent capital, head to Paris In Pictures for Parisian photography dose!!
