Consider an apartment-hotel or a rented apartment, too, as they often have more than one bed in separate rooms. You could get a single-bedroom apartment-hotel with one bed in the main bedroom and a convertible bed in the living room, etc.

The Hotel Claude Bernard in the latin quarter, st. germain area has a quad room. It has a double bed and two singles. We were searching for a quad room and there weren't too many. Have fun and report back with a trip report. We go in June with two teens. (We moved over to the Hilton and are staying with points).

we were in Paris with 2 teens and 2 preteens and stayed in an apartment. The two teens had their own room, and we all needed that. They appreciated having their own area, and we all needed somewhere to spread out in. Although, we were there for a week. After a LOT of searching, the apartment we found came in cheaper than a hotel, when you consider the price of breakfast and the couple of meals we had in. Also, the teens liked feeling like they were Parisians.

second the above. consider apartment.

We stayed in an apartment this summer, teens had room to spread out. Bought food in the markets and cooked, or dined out if we wanted.

More space, less money. More travel, less touristy.

search here on paris apt you will find lots of information

We used http://www.vrbo.com

apt with pool, teens might like

Have fun on your trip.

If you do a search here, there have been a couple of discussions of hotels with quad rooms.

If you want two rooms try Le Hotel du College de France in the Latin Quarter. Very nice and affordable.

My wife, her sister, and I took our teenage granddaughter to Paris for a long weekend. We had two rooms in the 6th at Hotel Pas de Calais which is right off the blvd St. Germaine and near many restaurants and great people watching at two famous restaurants. Metro is close. Great area for just walking around. We have stayed at this hotel on 3 visits to Paris and have always like it. It has a web site- check it out.

We'll be in Paris later this month also withtwo teenagers! We have one room for 4 persons at the Hotel Des Grandes Ecoles www.hotel-grandes-ecoles.com for 155 Euro per night. It is near the Pantheon. I had two independent recommendations from newspaper articles.

Unsolicited tip for those teenagers...Segways, Segways, Segways. It was a huge hit on our trip, and it is always the first thing she talks about. Have a great time!

Hi bebrief,

We took our two teen girls to Paris and Provence last June. We stayed at the Hotel de Fleurie, in the sixth between two metros, St. Germaine and Odeon. We had the family room, which is two adjoining rooms (with the all- important two baths.) The rooms are small, but the staff is really sweet and helpful, and the location can't be beat. I just topped my own trip report (We made it! Adventures in Paris and Provence with teens) because the search doesn't seem to pull up any of the reports from this summer. You may find it helpful, but I warn you, it's not brief Have a great trip!

Another vote for Hotel de Fleurie. Lovely hotel in an excellent location for exploring Paris.

We are getting an apartment for our next trip to Paris, but last time we had the suite at Hotel Langlois near the opera. It had a separate bedroom and 2 single fold-out beds in the main room, along with a dining table. Just a couple of years ago we paid under $200/nt, but now is higher at 180e.
