The Best Paris Hotels for Families

Welcome to my guide to the best hotels in Paris, France for families. In addition to recommendations for family-friendly hotels in Paris and alternative Paris accommodations for families, this guide will offer you some helpful tips (ex. exactly where to stay with family in Paris).

I want your once-in-a-lifetime Paris family vacation to be truly exceptional, starting with a hotel (apart-hotel, or vacation rental) that you will fall absolutely head-over-heels in love with. (In our family, we still talk about the magical view we enjoyed from our room during one of our first trips.)

Please use the menu below to find what you need quickly, or jump straight to the hotel list. In a big rush and just need a winner? My choice for the best Paris family hotel for several years running has been:

The Novotel Paris Les Halles

This property has consistently ranked as one of the top family hotels in Paris due to its family room options and stellar location near the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens and the major transportation hub of Châtelet – Les Halles (5 metro lines, 3 train lines). Oh yes, and breakfast is free for kids*.

*Up to 2 kids under 16 per room reservations.

Family Hotels in Paris, France – Introduction

Before our very first trip, I read everything I could on family friendly hotels in Paris, France. Despite hours (days, really) of research, there were still things that I could not entirely get my head around, having never visited the city before.

For example, I simply agonized over which district to stay in (or arrondissement, as they say in France). I also spent copious amounts of time waffling between family-friendly hotels in Paris and roomier vacation rentals (that were typically more budget-friendly).

I quickly discovered that there was a real lack of Paris hotels with family rooms or suites. It seemed that many (if not most) of the hotels catered to couples. I suppose this shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise. Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world, after all!

With these trip planning challenges in mind, I decided to create this guide to the best family hotels in Paris. In addition to sharing my favorite family accommodations in Paris, I have included other essential tips that I hope will be very helpful to you in your trip planning.

Personal Note: Truth be told, there is another reason I wrote this post. It annoys me that many articles on Family Hotels Paris list the same 3-4 luxury hotels. I have no doubt that The Ritz, Le Meurice and Le Bristol are absolutely brilliant with kids – and they should be, considering they will set you back several thousand euros a night. I just have never found information like this very helpful, as much as I like to dream a little. This post intends to provide you with more practical and affordable alternatives.

Hotels for Families Paris – Getting Started

Paris City Layout

Paris is divided into numerical districts, or neighborhoods, called arrondissements. They start in the center by The Seine and curl out clockwise towards the suburbs. The lower numbers (1 to 8) are more central and closer to the major tourist sites. 

For example, The Louvre Museum and The Tuileries Gardens are in arrondissement #1, the Notre Dame Cathedral is in #4, The Latin Quarter is in #5, The Luxembourg Gardens are in #6, the Eiffel Tower is in #7, and the Arc de Triomphe is in #8.

When you get into the double-digit arrondissements, you are getting further away from the city center. This is not to say that you won’t find some fabulous and less expensive Paris family hotel options further out. You just want to keep in mind that you may have more travel time and higher transportation costs.

Tip: Paris zip codes start with the number 7. If you are looking at any Paris family hotels that start with a different number, you will be further out from the major attractions.

Where to Stay in Paris with Kids

Deciding on the best area to stay in Paris with family can feel a little overwhelming at first. When looking for the best family hotels in Paris, France, I prefer the following arrondissements (neighborhoods).

The 1st (Louvre)

The 1st arrondissement is an excellent choice for a family in Paris. It provides an ideal location from which to explore the city, with the Tuileries Garden (carousel, playground, trampoline park, and summer amusement rides), the Louvre, and the Arc-de-Triomphe all nearby.

The 1st. arrondissement offers some excellent shopping opportunities along the Rue de Rivoli and at the Forum des Halles Shopping Center (LEGO store). Luxury shoppers will also love the recently renovated La Samaritaine luxury department store.

For foodies, this part of the city is home to the best Michelin Star restaurants for kids in Paris, so it’s a real win-win location.

Tuileries Garden Paris
Jardin des Tuileries (1st arr.)

The 3rd & 4th (Le Marais)

The lively Marais area has some of the best boutique shopping in Paris. It is home to the Pompidou Arts & Culture Centre which also encompasses a pleasant (car-free) area to visit with kids. The area also has a spacious square, some lovely cafés, fountains, and often, street entertainers.

Centre Pompidou Paris

Within Le Marais, you will also find the beautiful Place des Vosges, the first planned square in Paris – dating back to 1605. It is a fun and relaxing space, especially if you are visiting Paris with a toddler. Plan for a Paris picnic while admiring the surrounding 17th-century architecture! Notre Dame (currently under reconstruction) and the Seine are about a 15-minute walk from the central Marais area.

Place de Vosges Paris
Place des Vosges (3rd / 4th arr.)

The 6th Arr. (St.-Germain-de-Pres)

The 6th arrondissement on the Left Bank is in a prime location between the Latin Quarter and the Eiffel Tower. Not only is it home to historic cafés (Les Deux Magots, Cafe de Flore), some of Paris’s top restaurants, and Paris’s oldest department store (Le Bon Marche), it is also only a short walk to Notre Dame and The Seine.

For families with younger children, the 6th is where you will find one of the best parks in Paris – Le Jardin du Luxembourg. The park has the most wonderful children’s playground, a carousel, and the quintessential Parisian marionette theater. We enjoyed it so much on our first trip that we visited twice.

Luxembourg Gardens Paris

Other Single Digit Arrondissments

Almost any central location along the Seine gives you easy access to the heart of Paris, with a variety of transportation options nearby (boat, bus, Metro, taxi stands, etc.) Sidewalks are also roomier in these areas, making getting around with a stroller easier than in some of the more tightly packed neighborhoods, where the sidewalks frequently diminish or disappear altogether.

Getting Around Paris

Regardless of which family hotel in Paris, France, you are considering, it is advantageous to have a major Metro station nearby. The Metro provides a very convenient way to get around this labyrinth of city. Be sure to note how far the closest station is when booking your accommodation.

Ride-sharing services and taxis can also be a great alternative, but there can be an issue for larger families. Uber-X and regular taxis will take up to 4 passengers. Uber Van will take up to 6 passengers.

Note: While walking around with kids in Paris is enjoyable, the sheer scale of the attractions can be a little deceiving. For example, even though the Tuileries Garden is right beside the Louvre, it is still about a 1.2 km (0.75-mile) walk from the museum to the fun kids’ trampolines in the park.

Paris Family Accommodations – The Need to Know

Whether you are looking for the best hotel for families in Paris or you’re opting for a quaint family vacation rental, there are a few important things to pay attention to.


When making a decision around a family friendly hotel in Paris, it helps to get your expectations in check. Paris hotel rooms and apartments are typically quite small in comparison to what you might be used to in other cities (especially the U.S. and Canada). In most cases, Paris family room hotels note the room size in the description which can be helpful when choosing between properties.


As it is typical for a Paris hotel family room to be quite small, there is often not a lot of extra space for giant suitcases. And not only are rooms typically small, but so are most building elevators and taxi/Uber trunks. If at all possible, try to manage with only a carry-on-size suitcase for each person. (I know this is hard. I could very easily fill a carry-on with shoes alone.)

Bed Size

Pay careful attention to the bed sizes when looking at family room hotels in Paris. The terminology and sizing can differ from what you might be used to. 

For example, while a European double is usually close to the same as a double in North America, a large double usually refers to a queen, and an extra large double, a king. That said, an extra large double can also be two twin beds pushed together (study the small print and those photos carefully).

The width of the bed in centimeters is also usually listed. A queen should be listed at 150cm by 160cm and a king at 190cm by 200cm.

Connecting Rooms Paris Hotels

If you are looking for Paris hotels with connecting rooms, pay careful attention. Look for language like internally connecting, inter-connecting or communicating instead of adjacent, where the rooms are unlikely to have an internally connected door.

The truth is, it can be very tricky to successfully book hotels with connecting rooms in Paris. The reason for this is that while many hotels will let your request them, very few will actually guarantee them.

Obviously, this is a huge problem for families. Arriving at a hotel to discover that your supposedly connecting rooms are actually on two different floors is definitely not ideal (and something that has happened to our family on numerous occasions over the years).

Expedia offers a feature allowing you to book connecting rooms. After you book the rooms, Expedia reaches out to the hotel to confirm that connecting rooms are available and then confirms with you via email. Personally, I still think there is a small risk here that you could arrive at your chosen property and not have connecting rooms.

Much better is Hilton’s connecting hotel room finder. Hilton goes so far as to actually guarantee that you will have connecting rooms in Paris.

Tip: For the best rates (up to 17% off), I highly recommend you become a Hilton Honors member (free) before making a booking. 

Air Conditioning

Paris has had some incredible summer heat waves in recent years. If you are traveling from June to September, double-check to ensure your chosen family accommodation in Paris has an A/C unit.


I know that a pool is often quite an important hotel amenity when traveling with kids, but very few Paris family friendly hotels have them (except at the very, very high end). There is so much to do in Paris, however, that your kids might not even notice.

If a pool is an absolute must, consider making your visit a cultural experience by visiting one of the two central Paris municipal pools. Both the Piscine Joséphine Baker and Piscine Pontoise are close to the Seine, but Piscine Joséphine Baker is the one offering magical riverside sunsets.

In the months of July and August, pop up beaches (plages) also appear along the banks of the Seine.

Paris Family Hotels Map

I have detailed all of my favorite hotels for families in Paris in the upcoming sections. However, since I love a good visual, I have also plotted them on a map along with some of the major attractions including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Louvre.

My recommended Paris family hotels and family apart-hotels are shown in yellow (like the icon below). Unfortunately, the software does not allow me to filter out the rest of the properties (shown in red and blue).

The 20 Best Hotels in Paris for Families

The following Best Places to Stay in Paris with Family list is separated by hotel class, starting with 3-star properties. I hope you find the perfect fit for your Paris family vacation.

Take me to:

Three Star Family Hotels, Paris

I really love all of these 3-star hotels in Paris for families, even though most of them are outside of my favorite arrondissements. The reason is simply that the most popular arrondissements also have the most expensive real estate in Paris and are dominated by 4 and 5-star luxury hotels. That said, all of these are just a short trip to the main attractions of Paris.

1. Hotel Jôke by Astotel

The Joke Hotel – Image Credit: Booking.com

This fun little hotel in Monmartre has a comedic theme and is just a 3-minute walk to the Moulin Rouge. Adding to its accessibility, it’s a mere 200 meters away from the Blanche Metro Station, providing direct connections to renowned landmarks like the Arc de Triomphe.

The services at this family-friendly Paris hotel include a 24-hour front desk, concierge services, and free WiFi. Rooms also feature a flat-screen TV, safe, and air-conditioning. Even better, The Joke Hotel offers a breakfast service that can be delivered to your room.

There is one specific thing that families love most about Hotel Joke, however, and that is the free snacks! A stay includes a complimentary minibar full of non-alcoholic beverages and access to afternoon and evening snacks in the lobby. Guests are also welcome to enjoy complimentary evening snacks at any of the Paris Astotel properties (there are 17).

For those looking for a Paris hotel with family rooms, the Joke Hotel is a good option. Their family lodgings have connected rooms for four guests, with a queen bed in one bedroom and two twin beds in the other. The suite also has two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a tub.

Check rates for The Hotel Joke on Expedia or Booking.com.

2. Yooma Urban Lodge

Paris Hotel for family of 6

The Yooma Urban Lodge is one of those very unique Paris hotels for families of 6 that is also relatively affordable! While it is slightly little less central than some other family friendly hotel Paris options, it is just a 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower.

This property has room options that can accommodate 2 to 6 people – specifically designed with families in mind. It has a restaurant, bar, breakfast area, sauna, fitness room and a games room (with both board games and arcade games). It even has a rooftop produce garden! While it is a relative newcomer, this may easily become my best hotel for family in Paris in the budget category.

For families traveling with a baby or toddler, the Yooma even has a kitchen equipped with a microwave oven and bottle warmers on each floor.

Check rates for the Yooma family hotel Paris on Expedia or Booking.com.

3. Hôtel du Levant

When sharing Paris hotels family rooms, I try to avoid adjacent rooms (that do not connect internally) – but I like the option offered at this hotel. It is actually two side-by-side rooms, located behind a separate hallway door. As this is a fire door, it cannot be locked off, but it would give you some extra privacy. (Possible ideal if you are traveling to Paris with teens as they would have their own space but still be very close by).

The hotel shared this photo with me.

They also typically providing apartment-style features such as kitchen facilities, living areas, and more space than a standard hotel room.

Note: The additional services such as housekeeping, are usually scheduled at an additional cost.

The following Paris apart-hotels can be an excellent, budget friendly option for those looking for a hotel in Paris for a family of 5 or 6.

While Le Citizen Hotel is set back a little further from the main tourist sights of Paris, I’ve included it because Canal Saint-Martin is quite an interesting area. It is a waterway with nine locks that connects the Canal de l’Ourcq with the Seine. The hotel is also only a 10-minute walk from several Metro stations that can easily connect you and your family to the rest of the city.

The cheery rooms at this property are air-conditioned and include free WiFi, satellite TVs (with free on-demand videos), canal views, and complimentary tea and coffee. If needed, a safe and minibar can be added to a room.

Specifically for families, Le Citizen offers 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartments featuring a queen bed, a double bed, and a sofa bed (sleeps up to five guests).

Check rates for Le Citizen on Booking.com.

The spacious apartments include air-conditioning, kitchenettes, washing machines, flat-screen TVs, and safety deposit boxes. There’s even an indoor pool for guests to use (albeit at an additional charge).

Paris Family Vacation Rentals

While this post is primarily a Family-Friendly Hotel Paris guide, vacation rental apartments offer some excellent alternatives in such an expensive city. This is especially true if you are looking for Paris hotels for families of 5 or 6, as these are pretty pricey and hard to find. Online platforms such as VRBO, Plum Guide, and Airbnb all offer hundreds of Paris family-friendly vacation rental apartments.

Personally, I like to narrow down my search by filtering the price, arrondissement, and a 9/10 or a 4★ plus guest rating. I also select the “family-friendly” filter and then fine-tune my amenities to include WiFi and air-conditioning if it is a summer stay. 

A major Metro station within easy walking distance is a huge plus. Once I’ve narrowed my search to roughly half a dozen properties, I pore over the guest reviews looking for anything that remotely sounds like a potential disappointment.

A Word of Caution

While I have only had good experiences with vacation rentals in Paris (through both VRBO and Airbnb), you should be aware that there is always some risk that a host could cancel your reservation.

Depending on the online booking platform, the host may be able to do so with little or no penalty (especially if it is more than 30 days out) as long as they fully refund your money. Thirty days may be ample time to find a new place in Paris in the middle of winter, but good luck finding a suitable rental on short notice in the summer. You will likely have to pay quite a bit more for something you don’t like nearly as much.

To be fair, I have rented dozens of vacation rentals in my life, and I have only been cancelled on once – but it was a big one (in Tuscany, not Paris). Not only was it a huge disappointment, it was also very stressful and very expensive to find another place on short notice.

What I want you to take away from this is that if Paris is your family trip of a lifetime, and you are traveling in a high-demand period (summer, Christmas, or the 2024 Olympics), please proceed carefully with vacation rentals. If you don’t want that potential stress, book a hotel instead. (I’ve yet to be canceled on by a hotel!)

    My family and I will be in Paris for 4 days next month. Do you still recommend the Novotel? We are planning to see the Eiffel Tour, go to the Louvre and visit the Luxembourg gardens. We have 4 kids, ages, 14, 12, 9 and 7.
