Best Tip for Family Holidays in Paris 

The lesson we’ve learned through years of family travel is to ALWAYS book a centrally located hotel in Paris.

Family holidays in Paris are precious, and wasting time getting to and from cheap accommodation in Paris outer suburbs is not worth the savings or the hassle. 

In actual fact, a stay at one of the cheap family hotels in Paris may cost you MORE, if you include:

  • local transport fees on the Paris metro 
  • the need to pay for extras such as breakfast, towel hire, linen hire, luggage storage etc. 
  • taxi fares, when you can’t get back into the city because of train strikes 

The best thing about Paris accommodation for families in the city is being able to spend as much time as possible at all the central Paris attractions and activities right up until you need to depart for the airport. 


Paris Accommodation Novotel Paris Les Halles - Ned and Jack.

Family Rooms Paris style

My boys were super happy with the little soft toys they were given at check-in (although Jack wanted another one every time we passed the desk!)

Our room on the 7th floor was clean, shiny although a little dark for my liking.

But the boys delighted in the giant television screen, and the huge cupboard that was just right for a game of hide and seek. (A regular occurrence when travelling with boys)

But really, it’s the little extra things like children’s menus and kid-friendly staff that make a fantastic family hotel stay, and the Novotel Paris les Halles hotel was on top of that.
