Top 10 Family Hotels in Europe

Visit any major review site. Many reviews by travelers either mention the absence of certain family-friendly amenities or appreciate a hotel when those are present. For travelers who frequently vacation with their families, checking for these features becomes like second nature. But that may not be true for first-time vacationers about to book a stay in Europe.

Have you been thinking of going o n vacation with the family? Here are some suggestions you should look out for:

 

Family Rooms

Most hotels charge by the room so simple math says you save if you can squeeze the family into a single-family room. If your children are older, perhaps sharing with a couple of teenagers is not a recipe for a great vacation, so adjoining rooms would be better. Hotels can often create a private suite by a series of interconnecting rooms which gives the family room to spread out and enjoy some privacy.

 

Value-Adding Features

All-Inclusive Resorts in Europe can offer the value that other hotels won’t. Children love the endless supply of ice creams, snacks, and soft drinks and there is the added plus that you will be pestered to pull strange coins and notes out of your pocketbook to pay for them! Extra value features can enhance the stay at any hotel. Sports and leisure amenities, for instance, you will keep your active children busy and many resorts run age-appropriate children’s clubs with enthusiastic professional activity leaders.

 

Welcoming and Family Friendly Staff

The Best European Trips for Families begin with a great place to stay in. That doesn’t just include the hotel premises, but the staff as well. Portugal, Spain, and Italy are famed for family orientated cultures where you will find a warm and friendly welcome for your children in the hotels and local restaurants cafes and shops

Keeping these characteristics in mind, we have listed our top 10 family hotels in Europe for you:
