Résidence Lion d’Or Louvre 

As its name suggests, this aparthotel is near the Louvre, which means it’s also in a very central location as this world-famous museum is in the heart of the city. It’s only a block and a half from the historic Tuileries Gardens, home to several playgrounds, a maze and a vintage carousel, where the kids take a break for traditional sightseeing. You can reach many other top Paris attractions on foot or via the great métro links near the hotel. Originally built in the 17th century, yet recently renovated, it offers a lot of charm as well as modern conveniences. Sleeping up to four, its apartments are well adapted for families, plus their kitchenettes will be useful for preparing snacks or packed lunches to nibble on while touring the city.

Hotel Paris France 

One of the best family hotels in central Paris and among the most affordable options on the list, this no-fuss hotel is a bargain for being in the Les Halles-Montorgueil area. Many top Paris sites, including the Louvre, Notre-Dame, and Centre Pompidou, are easily reachable on foot and it’s also very close to Paris’s largest métro interchange station whose subway lines can whisk you rapidly to virtually anywhere in the city. The area around the hotel is mostly pedestrianised, making it safer for the kids and there are many casual cafés and eateries in this vibrant neighbourhood. What’s more, there’s one of the city’s coolest playgrounds a hop-skip-and-jump away in the Nelson Mandela Garden. Clean, simple, and in tones of white and beige, the hotel has triple rooms (queen and a twin bed) which can have a fourth bed added for a small extra fee.

Without needing the métro, several lesser-known gems in the area appeal to kids. It’s next to Bercy Village, restored historic wine warehouses now home to casual restaurants, shops, an immersive exhibit venue, and a cinema. Beyond this is Bercy Park, great for kids to race around on the large lawns and in the play areas. A short walk away is the cool Coulée Verte René-Dumont, a former elevated train line atop which is a pretty promenade that goes all the way out to the vast Vincennes Woods, the Paris Zoo, and the Aquarium in the Palais de la Porte Dorée.
