We travelled with three young children and needed to find a hotel with a room, or connecting rooms, that could accommodate five people - not easy in Paris. I am so pleased we found Hotel Residence Foch (through TripAdvisor).
Hotel rooms in Paris usually are pretty compact, so we weren't surprised that the three single beds they had put in the children's end of the family room were creatively crammed in; the point is they managed to get three beds in there, and with space to move between them, a miracle!
Our room was comfortable, spacious compared to rooms I've had in other Parisian hotels. The bathroom was very nicely appointed, and spotlessly clean.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The first morning the children and my husband slept very late, and I went on downstairs to have a coffee. The fabulously friendly and helpful manager asked why I was alone, and then immediately offered to have four trays made up and sent to the room so the family could have breakfast when they woke.
I declined the offer, but asked how it would cost to have breakfast in bed, the manager's response?
'Why madam, nothing! You have already paid for your breakfast, it is our pleasure only that you enjoy your stay.'
That is the first time EVER that I have had that kind of service offered in a hotel.
Would I recommend Hotel Residence Foche for families? Absolutely, and anyone else that wants a friendly and welcoming hotel to go back to after a long day of sightseeing.
The hotel is small, but offers brochures, has postcards for sale in the lobby, and can give you a range of recommendations on places to see, where to eat and how to get there.
Our youngest is 5 and we all walked from the hotel to the L'Arc de Triomphe and then on down to the Seine and the Eiffel Tower. It is only 5 minutes from the metro station which connects you to everything. There was a gorgeous pizzeria two minutes along the road, a chemist (pharmacy) and 5 minutes more takes you to the most amazing Lebanese restaurant whose name I forget but the lovely manager knows where it is!
Thank you to everyone at Hotel Residence Foch, you made our stay very enjoyable!
