Which is the best arrondissement to stay in Paris with kids

Paris is divided into twenty neighborhoods (arrondissements), so you will want to pay attention to the arrondissement when booking your accommodation. Arrondissements are arranged in a clockwise spiral pattern from the center of the city, with central Paris being the 1st arrondissement. However, a central location doesn’t always mean convenience.

Overview of the main Paris arrondissements

Families looking to stay close to the city’s main attractions will want to be close to the 1st arrondissement which is close to the Louvre Museum, Jardin des Tuileries, and Jardin du Palais Royal. This means plenty of access to parks for kids to play and nice walks along the Seine.

The 4th arrondissement is referred to as the Marais district, filled with shops, restaurants, and charming cafés. It’s not far from Notre Dame Cathedral (there’s a small playground adjacent to it), and it has easy access to the river and metro.

Luxembourg Gardens Paris sailboats

For families visiting Paris who want a hotel room with Eiffel Tower views (or easy access to the tower), we would recommend the 7th arrondissement. There’s a huge green space on one side of the tower, and the river on the other. This area is also home to the Musée d’Orsay, the Palais Bourbon, and the Rodin Museum.

When you see Rive Gauche (Left Bank), those are the arrondissements on the southern part of the Seine River, Rive Droite (Right Bank) are the arrondissements on the north side of the river. These are some of our favorite family-friendly hotels in Paris for you to consider.

We had an issue with our Airbnb reservation (they canceled on us 6 days in advance of the stay and we were already in Paris).

Best Family Hotels in Paris Astotel-Kids Are A Trip
Hotel Acadia rooms were clean and had views of the Paris rooftops.

Since we are a family of 5, it is difficult to find rooms that accommodate all of us, hence the creation of our article, the best places to stay in Paris for large families. Thankfully, Astotel had reasonably priced rooms and we found an affordable hotel with a three-person room and a two-person room, each for less than $200/night.

We stayed at the Hotel Acadia, and we could not have been happier. The staff was pleasant, the three-person room was spacious, the two-person room was standard size. Even better, breakfast was included. 

This chain of hotels allows you to stop at any of their properties during your stay for a snack or coffee. We definitely made use of this and visited Hotel George and Hotel Astoria for some lovely treats while out exploring.

The location was close to the Grands Boulevards Metro stop and we walked about 20 minutes to Sacre Coeur. It’s on a quiet side street just off Rue de Montmartre.
