We stayed at this hotel because it is incredibly difficult to find accommodations in Paris (and Europe in general) when you're traveling with family. If you're a couple alone or with 1 child, not much of a problem. But try finding a stay for two parents and two children! I called a bunch of the hotels and said they can only accommodate up to 3 guests. I made the case that two children added up to 1 adult so they should be allowed but I was told NO. 3 guest max regardless of age. Is that crazy? Certainly not like the good old USA where the beds are large enough to accommodate a family of 4.
Well, we found Novotel Charenton! A gem! Great hotel, great service, and best of all... it caters to families and adults with kids! A real difficult thing to find in Paris and Europe. The meals were great. They even have X-box in the lobby for the kids.
And the staff will go out of their way to accommodate your requests and make you happy! That's a lot to say for Europe where customer service is defined differently from how it is thought about in the US.
Yeah, you won't be in the Eiffel tower's backyard and will take 20 minutes to get to the major tourist attractions, but the subway right underneath the hotel provides for easy inexpensive transportation to the major attractions. A small price to pay when you come back to a welcoming, comfortable, spacious and clean hotel with high quality staff that will make your wife and kids happy!
