Paris may be the city of light and love, but it’s also a great place for a family holiday. With famous landmarks, museums, galleries, parks, boat trips and, of course, Disneyland Paris, there is plenty to keep children of all ages occupied. You’ll need a comfortable spot to return to at the end of long days running around Paris with your family, so we’ve rounded up the very best family-friendly hotels the city has to offer.

1. Hotel Monte Cristo

The decor of Hotel Monte Cristo is vibrant: rich purple hues, marbled patterns adorned with exotic plants and antiques. This might not immediately scream family friendly, but rooms are spacious with an array of bed formats on offer. Staff are also very accommodating and wonderful with requests for children, especially when it comes to dining menus. Make sure to order room service from the delicious breakfast menu.

2. Residence Nell
