Room with an Eiffel Tower view

A couple whose living room overlooks the Eiffel Tower have been posting images of their stunning views, on Instagram for the past year, leaving us all in awe. Parisians Alexander Pak and Anna Chen posted a snap a day to share the incredible views, from their apartment, of Paris’ most iconic sites. We bet the TV doesn’t get used much in this home. Feeling a little envious? The plush, Hôtel Plaza Athénée has fantastic views of the Eiffel Tower too. Sex and the City fans might recognize it from Season 6, when Carrie moved to Paris and gasped at the view from her hotel room.
