29 Avenue de Tourville, 7th arrondissement; nearest metro:  Ecole Militaire

Whether you want to gaze at the Eiffel Tower from your hotel balcony, watch the Bastille Day fireworks without being part of the massive crowds on the ground, or have just a short walk when you visit the famous Iron Lady, Hotel La Comtesse gives you the ideal location. 

The hotel's location near the southeast corner of Champ de Mars and its "V" shape not only provides excellent sightlines from its 40 guestrooms but allows the hotel to make a phenonemal claim:  all guestrooms provide either full-on frontal or side views of the Eiffel Tower (as well as other Paris monuments such as the Invalides dome).

You'll get the best full or side views if you book a room with a balcony, and perhaps the very best is the type of room I had: "Comtesse Room with Balcony."  (Room #506, to be precise.) 

In my room, the balcony wrapped around the pointed end of the building, so I can tell you that the side views from 5th floor balconies are also excellent.

Hotel La Comtesse features simple but luxurious contemporary decor in the guestrooms, elegant public spaces, an onsite coffeeshop/cafe, and a fitness room. 

Rates are reasonable, considering what you get, although of course higher in summer than in winter.

The location gives you, of course, easy access to the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides (where the Army Museum and Napoleon's tomb are located, the appealing Rue Cler market street, Bon Marché, the Rodin and Branly Museums, the Seine River, and lots more place you'll want to explore.
