Hotels in Paris

Please help to choose hotel in Paris. I will be staying in Paris from Sep 14-17 (4 nights) and was looking hotels in expedia from $200-$350 with free cancellation option but hard to select hotel because I am not sure which area's hotel will be good for me with 2 kids. Any help on this? What about Citadines République Paris hotel?

If you know which arrondissement you want to stay in, you can tell by the postal code where hotels are located. For example 75005 is in "the 5th" aka Latin Quarter.

The numbers work like a snail and spiral outwards from the 1st in the center. So most people new to Paris would want to stay somewhere central like the 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th.

(i checked a map and the hotel you mention would be too far out for me to choose)

Yes, that would be a good location. Very convenient to public transportation, but not the most expensive area so you get more for your money. Citadines is an aparthotel, I'm sure you saw that, and so you might want that with kids.

Just look at a map and see where Notre Dame is, that is the dead center of the city. Any place you would stay within a reasonable distance of that would be fine, and then pick a place near a metro stop, which you can easily see on Google maps when you google the hotel.

How old are your children and is this just for the three of you?

I booked a triple room april last year for 5 nights with breakfast at hotel albe saint Michel for 1300+ euro. Very near Notre Dame and around 15 minute walk to Louvre. Restaurants, grocery store, subway station nearby

Although you will pay more, I agree with Christina to start close to places of interest and work your way out as your budget permits. It is so nice to be able to make a quick trip to the hotel to drop off stuff or just take a time out when the hotel is nearby.

With children, you may want to look at apartments. A kitchen and a bit more room to spread out makes a lot of difference. Even if an apartment is a little more expensive than your hotel budget, the money saved by not having to go out for three meals a day will make up for the added expense. Try VRBO or Homeaway - just make sure there is a registration number - all short-term rentals in Paris require a registration with the city.
