Most popular areas in Paris for family-friendly hotels

The mix of museums, galleries, and green space in central Paris creates a relaxed and welcoming setting for families – whether you’re traveling with teens or very young children. The 1st and 2nd arrondissements, on the northern banks of the glimmering Seine, are full of family-friendly hotels. So too is the area just south of the Seine, between the palm-studded Luxembourg Garden and Neo-Classical Monnai de Paris building. There’s also a concentration of family-friendly hotels in the quiet, residential 9th arrondissement.

Top family-friendly hotels in Paris

The Hotel Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe is designed for a luxury family getaway. The spacious rooms can come with cribs and infant beds for tiny tots. There’s also additional in-room childcare, for when you want to sneak off to the hotel’s spa. The Hotel Concorde Montparnasse is a flashy modern hotel with large ensuite guestrooms – book adjoining rooms if you’re traveling with slightly older kids. The Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel proffers from doorstop Eiffel Tower access, and its airy rooms come complete with flat-screen TVs.

Where to find the best restaurants in Paris

The Montmartre area is chock-full of family-friendly eateries, whether you want classic prix fixe menus served by elegant garçons in quiet restaurants, or quick and easy crepes, filled baguettes, and hotdogs in casual bistros. The central 1st and 2nd arrondissements are known for high-class haute cuisine restaurants, but you’ll also find plenty of more family-oriented establishments with kid-friendly menus, from steakhouses to Italian diners. The 6th arrondissement offers a similar restaurant scene, with a higher concentration of traditional cafés.

The most popular things to do in Paris

Stop by the Eiffel Tower, a dizzyingly-tall structure – built with latticework iron beams – spearing the city skyline. Picnic in the flower-carpeted green park beside the tower, before exploring its interior, where stairs and lifts let you ascend to the sky-high observation deck – cheap tickets are available to children. Nearby, discover the Paris Aquarium, where underwater walkways wind through shark and stingray tanks. Treat the kids to a captivating cultural experience at the Museum of Natural History, where a grand conservatory-style hall – supported by industrial iron beams and topped by a glass roof – contains giant dinosaur skeletons and enormous African animal replicas. The museum adjoins the Jardin des Plantes, a palm-fringed paradise blooming with fruit trees and tropical flowers – a great place for the kids to run around in.

Best ways to get around Paris

Paris’ metro system – a vast network of underground trains – is extensive and easy-to-use. Stations are sprinkled throughout all the key central areas – with the metro and a little bit of walking alone, you’ll be able to get almost anywhere you need to go in the city. Paris’ network of public buses provides similarly convenient transport at low prices. Taxicabs are also in abundance throughout the city, and can be hailed with ease on the streets – private cabs can be booked from your Paris hotel, too.
