Rooms for 4

I am traveling to Paris with my wife and2 young sons in March. Last year we stayed at the Novotel Les Halles in a family room. While the hotel was spotless and the room spacious, it had no chrachter and the neighborhood at night was not very pleasant. Any suggestions? Anyone know of any of the chain hotels that allow 4 people in a room? Many thanks.

Le Meridien Montparnessee will allow 4 in a room. Several of the Best Westerns also have family rooms, and we have used them several times--they seem to be less generic than here in the US. The only allowing 2 or at most 3 in a room thing in Europe was a recurring problem with us when the boys were younger. THankfully, they are now old enough to stay in a room by themselves if needed ( and they actually prefer that now). It just means we sometimes have to stay in a less expensive hotel.

Hi nycatty35,

The Hotel Michelet Odeon in the 6th arrondisement had a quad room. I think the price is 147E. They also have a 2-bedroom suite. I have a reservation there for the end of April, beginning of May. It's right by the Odeon theatre, within walking distance of many sights. I haven't stayed there before but am familiar with the area and it's very convenient. There's lots of restaurants and the Luxembourg gardens are close by. It's far enough from the main boulevards to be quiet yet close to many activities. Tel#:; Fax#: They sent me an immediate response to my fax.

We stayed in the Novotel Paris Vaurigard with our 2 children; it doesn't have a lot of character, but the neighborhood feels quite safe (there's a huge police station across the street), the Metro was most convenient. We felt comfortable enough to leave them one evening (with Pizza Hut pizza) while we walked to a nice dinner at Le Petel Restaurant. I think this was all in the 15th ar. Don't know how old your sons are (my kids were then 10 and 12). By the way, we had a wonderful experience with a private tour guide we learned about from this site; the kids tolerated much more touring with him than they would have being lead around by us!

I stayed at the Hotel St Paul with two children in their quad room. The room had one big bed, plus a twin with a trundle. It was definately okay for the amount of time you spend in the room--the bathroom was also very spacious. The hotel itself was charming, and on a quiet street, but in a great area overall. we felt very safe, and could walk easily to most everything. The things we could not walk to were easily accesible by metro--the stop was a few minute walk away. The front desk staff was very fluent in English. I dont remember the price, but I seem to think it was arounnd 200 euro per night (Nov 2002)
