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: Four Seasons Hotel George V
- Best Cheap Hotel in Paris for Families: Staycity Serviced Apartments
- Best Paris Hotel with Pool: Le Bristol
- Best Family Hotel near Eiffel Tower: Novotel Paris Tour Eiffel
- Best family-friendly hotel in a quiet location: 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).

11. Gardette Park Hotel – moderate
Hotel phone: +33 (1) 4700 5793
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.

Popular Family Hotels in Paris
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.
