This suite was, by far, the best place I’ve ever stayed in my life. No doubt about it. The suite was bigger than my whole flat AND it had the best view of the Eiffel Tower from the room. I put hours of research into this one and if you want a room in a hotel with an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France then look no further. You’ll struggle to find anything better than this. Here is my Pullman Eiffel Suite / Penthouse Eiffel Suite review.
Updated in 2021: Note that the room is now called the Penthouse Eiffel suite, rather than just the Eiffel Suite.
One of the best private views of the Eiffel Tower doesn’t come cheap. It’s the most I’ve ever paid for one night in a hotel. I’d normally expect a week or so in a hotel for the cost of it! This is the only suite of this type in the whole hotel so if you do want it then you might have to be quick for popular dates. Let’s have a look at the Pullman Eiffel Suite and what you get for your money.
The Penthouse Eiffel Suite
The suite gives you 110m2 of space, a whole 50% bigger than my flat in Scotland! The amount of space is crazy. Especially when you consider that the average room size in a UK hotel is around 32m2…
As soon as you enter the room you see your bar area on the right. The bar is well stocked with a mini fridge containing prosecco, wine, beer, water and soft drinks. Only the water and soft drinks are complimentary but the other drinks are no more expensive than you’d normally pay in a hotel. There’s also tea and coffee (Nespresso machine) available plus a selection of glasses and mugs depending on what you’re drinking.
The next area is a seating area with a corner sofa, table and a 46” flat-screen TV with Bose speaker set up for either music or the TV. The whole suite has floor to ceiling glass windows and doors so the light and view is always there for you. After the sitting area, there’s a big marble dining table with four comfy chairs where you can enjoy the room service options (detailed below). You also have the option of eating outside at the table on the balcony if the weathers nice enough for that. There’s also a bathroom just before you get to the bedroom.
Next up is the bedroom, which can be closed off from the main suite with sliding doors. The bed is a king-size bed with some of the comfiest pillows I’ve ever slept on. The bedroom is a nice size with everything you’d usually expect in the room with the addition of a chaise longue as well as another 46” flat-screen TV. The bedroom also has double doors straight out to the balcony.
On the other side of the bedroom is the massive bathroom area. In the corner, it has a double bath with a hefty selection of C. O. Bigelow toiletries. The shower area has an amazing rainfall shower with the use of a hand shower available too. In the main room, it also has two sinks with two big mirrors and a second toilet.
If you’re staying for an extended amount of time (congrats on the lottery win!) then the Pullman Eiffel Suite offers plenty of storage space including a walk-in wardrobe room. There is also a Bose dock with an iPad to play music throughout the suite.
My Favourite Bit – The Best View of the Eiffel Tower
This Pullman Eiffel Suite review wouldn’t be complete without pictures of the view. As I mentioned before, I researched loads to find the best Eiffel Tower view from a hotel room and this was by far my top find. I even asked the concierge service I get through my American Express Platinum card and they couldn’t find anywhere better either. Therefore, the USP of this suite is definitely the view of the Eiffel Tower from the room.
There is also a continuous balcony right from one side of your suite to the other with a table and some chairs too.
Top Tip: From 6pm, the Eiffel Tower sparkles for five minutes on the hour every hour until 1am. Perfect for those pictures.
The hotel is on the left bank of Paris, right next to the Eiffel Tower (obviously). It has a massive 430 rooms, with nine different types plus three different suite types. There’s also the FRAME brasserie and a bar. Check in starts at 2pm and we were able to request an early check-in so we arrived at around noon. The check-out is up to 11am but, again, we requested a check-out of noon and they were more than accommodating.
How to get there
The hotel is roughly 18 miles from Charles de Gaulle airport and 10 miles from Paris Orly airport. The Gare Champ de Mars Tour Eiffel station is a short five-minute walk away and you can get there from the Charles de Gaulle airport using a combination of the RER B and RER C services in just under an hour. The cost of this is around 11€ (£9 / $12) one way. An alternative is taking Le Bus Direct on line 2. This takes roughly 60-70 minutes and it will cost you 18€ (£15 / $20) one way but you won’t have to change at all. You could also drive as paid parking is available at the hotel.
As we had the suite, the great view of the Eiffel Tower from the room, and the massive marble table, it would’ve been silly to go down to the brasserie so we opted for room service. The starters ranged from 11€ (£9 / $12) for soup up to 19€ (£16 / $21) for a chopped avocado salad with smoked salmon toast and a grain bowl in between.
The main courses started at 14€ (£12 / $16) for linguine to 37€ (£32 / $41) for a 300g seared strip steak. We both went for the steak because why not! It was excellent. The hotel staff brought it up, kept it on a hot plate while he set the table out for us which was nice. The other main course options were a spiced chicken dish and the fish of the day.
The desserts were around 12€ (£10 / $13) on average with chocolate fondant, cheese and fruit salad options. Some of the dishes across the three courses were available 24 hours a day too with healthy options marked on the menu, with its healthy menu section. There is also a TV Dinner option where you get a sharing platter with smoked salmon, roasted chicken, ham, cheese, salad and tortillas for 29€ (£25 / $32).
Would I stay here again? Yes
I would absolutely stay here again. The price of the suite might put almost everyone off but for a one-off I loved it. The suite is fantastic and how many times will you be able to say you stayed in a room with an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower? If only I had the money to stay at places like this for all of my trips!
Stayed in December 2019.

Have visited Paris a few times and I’m always awed by this monument however many times I see it. What a great view from the room and I must admit apart from that view I’m a fan of Pullman properties. Would definitely consider on my next trip to Paris. It’s got all you need from a great hotel.
I used to live and work in Paris and I totally wish to have a view like this in the city. However, I just saw another apartment block near the Moulin Rouge and heard those green machines in the road every morning cleaning the streets. God I used to hate 4am every morning. Now I am back in London but visit Paris regular but never really stay in hotels in the centre of the city however if I did, I would love to stay here. Looks clean, nice, quaint and above all, if I could wake up to the world’s largest climbing frame…sorry, Eiffel Tower (English joke), then that would be totally awesome. 🙂 The food in the menu looks reasonable priced for a Paris hotel as well. Have made a note of this hotel for the next visit in a few weeks time.
Haha I think I’d grow to hate those green machines! I’ve been to Paris quite a lot of times but I’ve yet to check out Moulin Rouge. I’ll need to go!
We have never stayed in a Pullman Hotel before. But I must admit that view of the Eiffel Tower in Paris would cause me to look at this hotel for sure. Good to know that there is only one suite with this view. And that it needs to be planned well in advance. We like to have lots of space to spread out and work. So this suite would definitely fit the bill. If I didn’t get distracted by the view! Good to splurge on something special some times.
Oh my! I can’t believe that it cost what you would normally pay in a week, BUT with a once-in-a-lifetime view like that it’s totally ok to splurge. I would definitely consider staying there – it seems like you had a great stay!
The Eiffel Suite looks a great place to stay with all luxury of having the view of famous Eiffel tower from your room. Good to know that it is spacious and big enough even than your flat size in Scotland. Good to know that they offer complimentary water and soft drinks. I would really consider this stay for my next trip to Paris.
Wow, you were really spoiled in Paris! I can only imagine how cool it must be to stay in the Pullman Hotel and get a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower from your room. I wish I could afford this luxury, but I’m afraid ain’t gonna happen any time soon, lol! Definitely a great hotel to consider on a trip to Paris.
Love the guide, I love how the view of the eiffel tower looks many people die to get a perfect shot of them sipping up their coffees with the eiffel tower in the picture. I haven’t stayed in any Pullman’s list yet but would love to consider it for my future trips.
Oh my goodness! What a gorgeous hotel. You’re right, and you can’t beat that amazing view. I can’t even imagine how relaxing it would be to have a morning coffee or evening glass of wine while admiring that view. I’m heading to Paris in March and will definitely be checking this hotel out. Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention and providing such a great review. 🙂
WOW. What a view! I’ll have to check out that hotel the next time I’m in Paris.Totally fabulous that the suite also had a balcony. There was even a view of the tower from the tub! How cool is that!
Incredible – I was in Paris in December as well! I guess I made the same researches , also for rooms with Eiffel Tower Views. So I could guess how much the room with such great views and location must have costed! I think its worth it to splurge especially when you have a special occasion to celebrate like the proposal to your other half! Congratulations on that, and what a romantic way at that!
Thank you very much Adele! 🙂
What the wow!!!!! Sitting in the comfort of your own room, wearing jammies, sipping hot cocoa and watching the lighting of Eiffel Tower would be just the best things to do!
Thanks for all your research. The room size is humongous indeed. I’d definitely stay here on my next trip to Paris. The money spent is totally worth it.
Thanks David for the nice and vivid description of the total Eiffel Suite, I love the interior and window view of the room. It’s nice how you described how to reach there. Things like these really help the travellers. The price of the food seems to be expensive, but can you tell me is there any vegan food in the restaurant of Pullman?
Thanks Shreya, there were a few vegan options on the room service menu. I’d like to think there would be more options in the brasserie in the hotel though
wowza that is a view! I’m sure it’s pricey but that hotel would make a trip to Paris absolutely unforgettable. How fun the eifel tower twinkles at the turn of the hour…I’ll have my camera ready!
It looks fantastic! I can see the temptation for one night, not sure my budget would stretch beyond that though! Paris isn’t the cheapest city to start with haha.
