The best hotels in Paris for families by price
The triple room at Villa Modigliani is huge! They also have family rooms with bunk beds and boast no extra charges for two children 12 and under when staying in a room with two parents. The hotel is super reasonably priced and located in Montparnasse, a short 10-minute walk to Jardin du Luxembourg! They have a nice “cour intérieur” and a back garden, providing a nice little outdoor space for kids to run around if you need a break but can’t make it all the way to the park. [13 Rue Delambre, 75014 Paris, France] Rates from around €115/night.
The Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel
The Mercure Paris Centre Tour Eiffel’s location can’t be beat as it’s only one-block away from the world’s most iconic tourist attraction. That means that you’re also only a block away from a playground and the grassy expanses of the Champs de Mars, perfect for running around or having a picnic. For a bit more room, book the junior suite which has a connecting door, meaning that you won’t be condemned to drinking wine in the bathroom once you’ve turned off the lights for the kids.

Hotel Square Louvois Paris
A great value for the money and in a prime location is Hotel Square Louvois Paris. This hotel lends a more contemporary and romantic feel. Children are most welcome, but they do not offer rollaway beds. The rooms are fairly large for Paris and affordable. The staff is friendly and there’s a small but lovely pool located in the cellar.

It’s biggest selling feature as one of the best hotels in Paris for families? The complimentary children’s club! (And it’s conveniently located adjacent to the spa, giving you a chance to relax and unwind.) Hippolyte, the hotel’s signature gardening rabbit–named after the hotel’s founder Hippolyte Jammet–greets young guests as they arrive.
