As a city that is the most visited in the world it should come as no surprise that Paris boasts some fantastic accommodation, much of which is perfectly suited towards families.
Paris is a relatively easy city to navigate on foot with kids, but to take full advantage of this I recommend staying in an area close to a key landmark, such as the Eiffel Tower, a museum or the Champs-Elysees, and using that as your base to explore this wonderful city. It is also a good idea to stay close to a subway stop.
