Recommendation: yes good 10 / 10 by AdrianB2014

I'm a little bit subjective here, but i believe is one of the best Architecture sets. Definitely top three for me. It looks great as a display piece and it has the perfect size and proportions. I recommend it heavily.

Recommendation: meh average 4.6 / 5 from 585 reviews

My children enjoy building and collecting the Lego architecture sets. This is a nice addition to the collection. We paid around thirty two dollars which makes this one of the more affordable sets and a good value for the money. It is about twelve inches tall which makes it one of the taller sets. It took us about 90 minutes to put this together. There are a few very tricky steps and a lot of repetitive work as well. Overall, it looks good. The booklet that came with it was fun to read through. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the Lego Architecture series. The age says 12+ which is probably right for a child to do this alone. I put this together with my eight year old, and I had as much fun as he did.

I bought this for my 38 year old son for Christmas. He and his girlfriend took a trip to Paris last Summer. He was very pleased with it and we were both happy at the size of it. I bought him the Empire State Building a year ago, so thought it would be small like that one. It's very impressive when done.

Recommendation: yes good 9 / 10 by hispabrick

It is a very fun set to build perhaps the best of the Architecture series because the techniques used, since it is simply not adding parts in layers. It is also a set that incorporates the new 1×2 modified plate with stud with groove and inside stud holder, a new piece that will start to appear in 2014, definitely every follower of the Architecture series should have it.

We really like the sleek look of this building set. It makes a great collector's item and looks really nice when put out on display.

Recommendation: meh average 40 / 50 by Redhead1982

From the overall score the greatness of the model is not that obvious. From specific aspects, such as parts, price and build the model doesn't appear to be sticking out of the average. However, the design is well done, and it's a recognisable model of one of the most famous Paris' buildings.

Naturally, the finished model is not highly accurate... because it's about a thousandth smaller in scale and made of LEGO bricks. Replicating real things in microscale presents many challenges and tough choices have to made. [...] It's all a very tough balancing act, and for those designing an official set, probably the toughest challenge is that it also needs to follow TLG's (secret) rules around legal connections, stability and ease of construction. Not to mention hitting a price point. So hats off to the Designer, because the finished product is instantly recognisable.

I've been to the Eiffel Tower many years ago and had a wonderful time in Paris. However, I still feel no connection to this set. I'm sure it will look good on a shelf next to all the other Architecture sets that the hardcore collectors will have, if you're into that sort of thing. Personally, I prefer sets you can play and interact with.

Despite these niggles, I have no hesitation in recommending this set and I'm sure it will sell well, particularly in Paris where it will have no problems competing with the tacky souvenirs of the tower available there.
