Looking for paris hotel with connecting rooms

Will be two families, and need two sets of connecting rooms in the heart of paris. $200 euro per room per night max($400 euro per family per night). An indoor pool would be a plus. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I think it will be very difficult to find a hotel in Paris with a pool for 200 euros or less per night. Pools are a feature of some of luxury hotels (e.g. Ritz) but are uncommon. The Renaissance Paris Vendome, for example (Marriott chain) has a pool but rates start at 330 euros per night.

I don't know how long you're planning to stay in Paris, but if it's for more than a day or so, you might have a look at the Citadines Hotel chain. These are "Apart'hotels" and studio, 1 and 2 bedroom units are available. (A 1 bedroom unit would accommodate a small family, with the sofa in the living area converting into a bed.) They have small kitchens, which would enable you to save a little money on breakfasts and snacks. They are sometimes less than "full service" (e.g. they might not have daily maid service, unless you pay an extra fee) but the availability of kitchens, laundry facilities, etc can be a plus for families. They range in quality from a basic 3* to a 4* and some are very central. Go to www.citadines.com. The rates drop if you stay 7 or more nights. Instead, you might look for a hotel that is near the large Aquaboulevard Complex, and take the kids there for a treat one day.

The other option you should consider, especially if you're staying for close to a week or more, is an apartment.

There are some modern large hotels with pools that are in that range, but they won't be in the center of Paris, but in the suburbs or edges.

Four rooms will be fairly expensive. A large apartment (or two small ones) will be cheaper and give you more space. Plus you'd have a kitchen (not that you want to do any major cooking - but for breakfasts, late night snacks, drinks/ice etc)

The Hôtel Mansart (in the 1st, just off the Place Vendôme) has some connecting rooms. I know because our superior twin room had a door to the adjacent room. You should be able to get something in your price range, but reserve far in advance--the hotel is popular with Europeans.

I agree about choosing an apartment over a hotel. I've never done it as we didn't have the need for it, but I've seen others whose apartments were really beautiful and spacious. You can share with the other family so the cost will not be that much.

In Paris hotels that have pools are the large ones which are very expensive. One small hotel is L'Hotel that has a pool, but the rates are exorbitant.

Hotels in Paris don't have much real estate to work with, so pools are not common.

Here are some hotels with family rooms:

<>Hotel de Fleurie
http://www.fleurie-hotel-paris.com/english/rates.html

<>BestWestern Hotel Royal St Michel
- adjoining rooms, 2 per floor
<>Best Western Paris Louvre Opera
- adjoining rooms available

Hi g2,

Not exactly what you want, but:

The Hotel Bonaparte has pairs of rooms off a short corridor with adjacent doors - eg, 18 & 19.

The rooms do not connect, but the adults in a double room (18) can easily hear the children in a twin room (19).

The corridor door can be closed, so that you could leave your room doors open.

You might want to contact them.

Rates are about 125E/rm with bkfst.

www.hotelbonaparte.fr

For more info, enter "Hotel Bonaparte" in the "search this forum" box.

No pool, and if you are staying a week, consider the 3 bedroom or 2 of the 2 bedroom apartments at http://www.parisvacationapartments.com/. We love their apartments at the Palais Royal (an actual Palace across the street from the Louvre)and found their service to be outstanding. You will be walking distance from anything you want, and a metro stop just steps away.

The type of door/room arrangement Ira described is also available at Hotel Relais Bosquet in the 7th Arr (around corner from Ecole Militaire Metro stop) and close to Eiffel Tower. I'd forget the indoor pool tho if I were you, you will PAY PAY PAY for something like that, if you can find it that is.

If it is going to add that much, no indoor pool I cant stay for the week so unfortunatley the apartments are not an option. Any other suggestions for connecting rooms in the 200 euro per room per night range would be helpful.

Apartments don't all require a full week. I still think an apartment is your best bet . . . .

We stayed at Hotel de France Invalides this past April. We had 2 rooms that did connect via a tiny hallway, and the "parent room" also had seperate access to the hotel corridor. The location was very nice, we thought, and we had a lovely view of Les Invalides. No pool, though, but we only paid 150 euro/night total.

Although pools in hotels are rare, Paris does have pools that you can access if you need to work out or something. I'm not sure if you have to register or if they're just open to walk-ins or how it works, but there are quite a few.

Some apartments will rent for 3 days. And the Citadines rent by the night. Seems like that's a good option for you. When traveling with kids, having a kitchen is convenient -- for breakfast, snacks, etc. And it's especially nice if there's a washer/dryer.

Your price specification is a little unclear. Do you mean dollars or euros?

Mimar, the OP posted in 2006. I'm guessing he's back from Paris by now.

Aaargh. We're getting a lot of old threads revived these days. Maybe Tripadvisor's policy of closing threads after a fixed period is a good idea. Certainly if the editors delete a post added on to an old thread, it would be nice if the thread didn't show up as active.

it's just the editing thing that makes them active, I don't agree at all with a policy of deleting entire threads after some time period. I like to search older threads, there is a lot of good info in them. There isn't much point to deleting them that I can think of, disk space is certainly cheap enough nowadays. The majority of travel info doesn't expire IMO.

Fair enough. However it is usually better to start a new/fresh thread instead of topping one from six years ago. Things change, properties open/close, some folks will answer the OP and not even see your post.
