Best BW in Paris with toddler

Hey guys, wife and I will be in Paris next Spring with the kids (almost 1 and almost 2 when we go) and was wondering if anyone could share experiences they've had at BW in Paris with kids. Any suggestions of places to stay would be great. Thanks!

What on earth is BW? Why do you have to use acronyms? This is not a telegram where you pay by words, it's free!

I'm kind of late to the party here but OP, unless there is a particular reason you need BW (points?) I'd suggest considering AirBNB/VRBO. I rented an apartment in Paris and having the separate bedroom to put our then-baby son to bed in was fantastic. More room generally plus having a functional kitchen too was nice... we had a good-sized living room to spread out in. It was about the same price or less than tiny shoebox-sized hotel rooms. I'd urge you to take a look.

What area of Paris did you book in? Was that a good area for you to see what you wanted to see?

We stayed in the 10th arrondissement, near the canal. It was sufficiently central for our needs as we had plenty of things around us and we were close to the Jacques Bonsergent Metro station so that we could explore the city easily.

I realize views may differ on this, but I think anywhere in 1-11 is going to be central enough to allow for easy exploration of the city. I wouldn't pass up the 12-20 either if there was a good deal on a nice condo close enough to a Metro/RER.

As we have a dedicated France forum, I'm going to move this thread over, for more specialist attention. Please continue to follow this thread in the France forum. Suivez le guide. Je suis le guide. Etc, etc.

The Best Western hotels in Paris are generally very nice. No matter where you book, be sure to explain that you have two children with you. Hotels in Paris are very strict about the number of people occupying a room.

I would be very cautious about renting an apartment in Paris. The city is very serious about removing illegal apartments from the marketplace. Basically, illegal apartments are those which do not have registration numbers displayed in their listings.

Agree with the posters above. There are some pretty good apartment deals in Paris. My family (three adults and one infant) stayed in one that was on Rue de Rivoli within walking distance from the Louvre. Surprisingly, at the dates that we selected (April 2017), Tripadvisor had better apartment rates than anything on Airbnb. A cot was provided for us and the owner was very responsive throughout the stay.
