If what you want is not to miss the Eiffel tower… don’t worry, you won’t!
Whether you stay next to it or anywhere else, the “Iron Lady” is ubiquitous and viewable from everywhere.
The area around the Tour Eiffel is a tree-lined, quiet upper middle class neighborhood, and can be a very good
base to explore a not too touristy part of the city.
American expatriates can be found around the rue Cler, and many hotels take advantage of the proximity to Paris’ most famous monument.
