Family European Vacation: Paris & London

Jump to last reply

I am in the very preliminary phase of planning a European Vacation this summer (late July/early August) with my husband, son (19 years old) & Daughter (15 years old). Trip length will be 10 days to 2 weeks and looking for a more "low key" vacation, meaning I don't want to run from city to city, but prefer to concentrate our time in 2-3 cities. I'm leaning towards starting our trip in Paris & then taking the train to London.

At this point, I'd like to get some recommendations on hotels. It seems that hotel rooms are smaller in Europe than US and I'd ideally like to have a larger hotel room or hotel that has a family suite. We are not interested in renting apartments. I'm not focused on a specific area of Paris or London yet, and willing to take a train to main area of city. I need to balance the cost of the room with the location. Budget would be approximately $200/room per night; would love to go lower, but not sure if that's feasible as i don't want a budget type of hotel.

I'm still planning itinerary, any suggestions are welcome. I'm considering adding South of France, day trip to Bath or Cotswold, etc. I'm open to all suggestions as i'm in initial planning stages.

Thank you!
