    Hi - maybe you would like to consider renting an apartment? You will have more space for your family - usually at a lower price too. And you can control the alcohol/food. You'd be able to find appropriate restauarants in any neighborhood. You can check www.vrbo.com or www.homeaway.com if you are interested. Enjoy Paris!

    yes if we know the lenght of time in Paris apartments are good for a week, try
    www.homelidays.com
    or see those advertise in www.fusac.fr

    Most hotels in Paris have accomm for the islamic rituals, just ask the hotel. Once I work in luxury hotels in Paris,and the guess of the religion always got what they ask.

    To be sure the best way is to contact the Paris tourist office who deals with these questions every day.

    hope it helps

    Try this web site. http://www.halaltrip.com/

    Type in Paris. I only found one place and it was a hostel but looked nice.

    Another possibility is to contact the Institute du Monde Arabe and see if they can offer advice. http://www.imarabe.org/ On the very bottom line is a "contact" link where you can e-mail them.

    The Paris Tourist Bureau as suggested above is an excellent suggestion.

    Enjoy your trip.

    I agree with Donna.

    best is to rent an apartment. We did the same
    when we went to paris and it was a better arrangement.
    In paris hotels, usually there is no iron, no fridge
    no microwave and no coffee or tea maker ( at least not
    around 2009). Also one had to pay for internet. Then
    most rooms are the size of a king sized bed.

    The apartment on the other hand, have bigger size and
    have all the amenities available. And there are
    apartments available in every location of Paris.

    You can, however, check the hotels as well. we were in
    Zurich last year and stayed at Crowne Plaza. I was surprised
    to see in the guest services book in the room that there
    was option for prayer mat and to point out the direction
    of Ka'aba and also there was option to prepare meals for
    Ramadan. There may be such hotels in Paris as well.
