We hope that after reading this post, you have a better understanding of what a family-friendly hotel is and have got your own list of hotels to consider.

What are family hotels?

A family-friendly hotel offers accommodation that is suitable for all members of an average family, especially for kids. A family hotel can provide a safe and comfortable space for you and your children to relax in, as well as give your family the opportunity to meet and make friends with a variety of people, especially the locals so that your kids can better understand Cambodian culture. In addition, family hotels often have their own children’s activities programs, which can keep the little ones entertained while you relax. 

Family hotels come in a wide range of styles and prices. They can be apartment-style living or a duplex living situation, one with multiple bedrooms, larger floor plans, and perks like private patios. As with any standard hotel, they provide 24-hour room service and other standard conveniences.  And most of them are located in the downtown area, close to the city centre. 

What makes a good family hotel room?

Bedroom

The bed policy should be one of your first concerns. Family rooms in hotels typically consist of a double bed and one or two single beds. Some hotels provide a kid-friendly room adjacent to the parents' suite. You can also request a travel cot, which is a handy alternative to bringing your own sleeping gear.

Playrooms and Children-Only Zones

A family-friendly hotel will recognize that parents need an hour or two to themselves. As a result, they frequently have playrooms and children-only areas that are perfectly safe for all ages. Many of the playrooms are soft play areas, with staff members available to supervise your kids for 30 minutes or an hour.

So, check to see if the family hotel has a kids' club and what activities are included in the kids' program, as well as where the activities take place. It is best to inquire about specifics such as the club's charges and fees, the age minimum, and the experience of the club counselors.

This is to ensure that your children are occupied with age-appropriate activities in the club while you and your partner relax poolside.

Kid-friendly pools

The pool at a family hotel can make or break your family vacation, especially if you plan to spend more time in the hotel for rest and relaxation. While other hotels may provide the comfort of an indoor pool, some hotels go above and above by providing an entire waterpark to the delight of your children. Therefore, you should check to see if the family hotel offers a pool, especially one for children.

Services

Traveling with a large group may make it tough to pack light. This problem is simply solved by the family hotel's effective laundry service. Some hotels will pick up your laundry and do it for you, while others feature coin-operated self-service machines.

Aside from laundry services, you might want to take a look at their room service offerings. Do they provide 24-hour service? Is it restricted to certain service hours?

You should also double-check the hotel's services because it might be frustrating to arrive at a hotel that only offers the kid's club during peak season or a hotel with a pool that is closed and under construction.

Easy food options

It is great if the family room you are considering has an on-site restaurant because it is very appealing to simply go ahead and check out the menu after a long and exhausting day. The majority of restaurants at family hotels already have kid-friendly menus.

However, family hotels that offer buffets are also a good option because they allow finicky eaters to have something to eat. It's even better if the restaurant's kitchen can accommodate specific requests, especially from your child, or dietary restrictions from any member of your family.

While most hotels provide complimentary breakfast for two, family hotels provide breakfast for the entire family. While this is usually dependent on the room booked, it can also be a benefit of booking with special discount deals and promotions.

Finally, inquire about unusual dining hours if an early dinner or late lunch is required. Most family hotels also have room service so that you can eat in the comfort of your own room, but it is preferable if the hotel room has an in-room fridge, coffee machine, or microwave.

This will allow you to prepare your own food, particularly simple foods like snack pieces, in the comfort of your own room.
