Paris Hotels for Families – Tips & Advice
- Paris has so much to see both indoors and outdoors that it’s a great year-round destination. But the very best months to visit are from late April to early October (excluding August).
- Paris has a shortage of good rooms for families. Book early if visiting between April and October or the Christmas/New Years period.
- Booking.com – the best website for finding family hotels in Paris.
- The best areas in Paris for families are Saint Germain (central, loads of shops and restaurants), Rue Cler in the 7th Arrondissement (quieter, slower paced, village-like feel, but still close to many attractions and the Eiffel Tower), and the Marais (less touristy, hip and trendy but still family-friendly).
- Best Luxury Hotel in Paris for Families: Le Bristol
- Best Cheap Hotel in Paris for Families: Staycity Serviced Apartments
- Want a family-friendly hotel in a quiet location? The Gardette Park Hotel – just beyond the Marais district in the 11th arrondissement but still walking distance (or a quick metro ride) to sights and attractions. A great playground and park are right across the street.
- Best Disneyland Hotel for Families: Disneyland Hotel Marne La Vallee. Nice pool and located right at the park entrance. Disneyland is 45 minutes by train from central Paris.
- To save time and money on the metro buy a booklet of 10 tickets called a carnet. They cost 14.40€ and allow 10 rides. Any one ride can last 90 minutes and include transfers.
- Kids (ages 4 to 10) save even more money when buying the carnet since they must pay adult prices for single tickets (1.80€) but get the book of 10 for half-price (7.20€). Kids 3 and under are free on the Paris metro.
- Good restaurants kids will love: Breakfast in America (breakfast all day), Breizh Cafe (the best crepes in the Marais), La Coupole (historic brasserie in Montparnasse), All Aboard Le Train Bleu (belle epoque style that’s still kid-friendly), Le Relais de l’Entrecote (steak, fries, and scrumptious desserts at 3 locations), Gourmet at Glou (kid-friendly wine bar in the Marais), and for an all-dessert menu Dessance (“cuisine du sucré”).
- The best playground on the left bank is at the Luxembourg Gardens (there’s a small fee). The best playground on the right bank is at the Tuileries Garden.
- Best Paris Hotel for Babies and Toddlers: The Four Seasons (everything parents could possibly ask for – from cribs to babysitting).
The 10 Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Paris, France
- Click the hotel name to check prices on Booking.com – my favorite website for booking hotels. Book 6 to 8 months in advance for the best rooms and rates.
1. Four Seasons Hotel George V – luxury
One of the very best hotels in Paris. Good sized swimming pool, and great service and staff. Kids’ bathrobes, greeting gift (for young guests), and complimentary baby food and toiletries. Babysitting services with 24 hours notice. Kids eat for free at the hotel’s restaurants. Family Recreation Manager helps families plan their visit. Close to George V metro station. Hotel phone: +33 (1) 4952 7000
2. Fraser Suites Le Claridge Champs-Elysées – luxury
Wonderful location right on the Champs-Elysées. Large 1 or 2 bedrooms suites easily sleep families of 4 or 6. All suites have kitchens. It’s a 2 minute walk to the George V metro station and 10 minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe. Hotel phone: +33 (1) 4413 3333
3. Le Bristol – luxury
Beautiful spacious rooms. Great indoor swimming pool. Children and families are not an afterthought here and are truly welcomed and pampered. There’s a good kids menu, a garden treasure hunt, and a supervised kids club and playroom. Hotel phone: +33 (1) 5343 4300
4. The Westin Paris Vendome – luxury
Very close to the Renaissance (also kid-friendly) but here you exchange the swimming pool for a larger room and suites are larger still. The Westin has kid-friendly service and great restaurants both in the hotel and just out the door. Tuileries metro station is very close. Hotel phone: 33 (1) 4477 1111
5. Gardette Park Hotel – moderate
This is a great mid-range hotel and one of my favorites in Paris for families on a budget. The family suites have 2 single beds and a queen and are a good size for Paris. Across the street is a park with a playground and there are several good restaurants within a 3 minute walk. A great neighborhood but with few tourists so you feel like you’re really seeing Paris. Hotel phone: +33 (1) 4700 5793
6. Hôtel Paris Louvre Opéra – moderate
7. Novotel Paris Tour Eiffel – moderate
8. Best Western Aramis St Germain – moderate
Great location in the center of St Germain. Triple rooms (2 twin and 1 sofa bed) and quadruple rooms (2 twin and 2 sofa beds). Steps from St Germain des Pres metro station. Hotel phone: +33 (1) 4354 0170
9. Staycity Serviced Apartments – budget
Large suites with kitchens and cookware close to Gare de l’Est and Gare du Nord (for Eurostar train to London). Friendly staff. Surrounding streets are not the most beautiful in Paris but there are plenty of places to eat, a food market, and good metro connections with the rest of the city. Hotel phone: +33 (1) 4489 6670
10. Timhotel Palais Royal Louvre – budget

Lonely Planet recommends Hotel de la Porte Doree but otherwise says little about good family-friendly hotels in Paris. Frommer’s and Rick Steves also have no specific recommendations for families visiting Paris. And like always Tripadvisor recommendations should be taken with a grain of salt.
