Final tip for booking family-friendly accommodation in Paris

If you have the possibility, book your room at least one month in advance or more, to have the choice and correct prices. It is also best to book through the hotel’s official website, as prices are usually lower than on websites such as Booking. Some hotels will offer you a bottle or other services if you book directly on their website. Cool no? 😉

You now have the choice between several super nice hotels in the capital according to the district, your budget etc., you just have to organize your citytrip!
