1. Van der Valk hotel Nijmegen – Lent
The first hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels in Nijmegen is the van der Valk Nijmegen-Lent. We are fans of van der Valk hotels and have already slept in a van der Valk hotel in many cities. The hotels are often just outside the center, but you can park for free, the hotels have lots of facilities, nice family rooms and the breakfast buffets they offer to guests are always super tasty and super extensive.

3. Hotel Oranjestaete
The third hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels in Nijmegen does lie right in the center. You walk from the hotel into the city center in a few minutes. We ourselves have slept at Hotel Oranjestaete in the past, before our daughter was born, and we liked it very much then. Hotel Oranjestaete also has plenty of nice apartments for families of three or four.
By the way, the hotel does not call these rooms family rooms, but apartments or studios. Suitable for families of four, these apartments are very spacious at 48m2. In this apartment, parents sleep in a bedroom and kids sleep on a sofa bed in the living room. The apartment also includes a kitchen, making it possible to cook for yourself as well.

We very often see that if the staff welcomes guests very warmly, the hotel also gets much higher marks by guests because they feel welcome. Of course, many families also mention the apartments that have many facilities and the location right in the center of the hotel.
Negative points Hotel Oranjestaete: very few negative points are mentioned about this hotel. A few families report that the sofa bed is not super and that they heard occasional noise from the street side, but out of a lot of reviews only a few named this.
4. Hotel de Prince
The fourth hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels in Nijmegen is also located right in the city center. Nijmegen’s train station is also easily accessible from this hotel, making this another great hotel to book if you are visiting Nijmegen by train.

Negative points Hotel De Prince: some of the rooms on the street side do not have air conditioning and therefore the rooms can get hot in the summer months. In addition, some families with kids found the rooms a bit on the dark side. There could be a little more lighting in the room.
5. Hotel Peacock
The last hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels in Nijmegen is also right in the center. You couldn’t really be more central than this hotel.

Hotel Pauw review
The hotel does not have super many reviews yet. A total of more than 250 guests have rated the hotel and the overall score for the hotel is a 7.5. Families with kids do rate this family hotel in Nijmegen a lot higher with a 9.4, but only just over 50 families with kids rated the hotel. You obviously prefer that the score was arrived at from hundreds of reviews from families.
Positives Hotel Pauw: Of course the location is mentioned as a positive point. Many families find the hotel’s decor warm and cozy, and most families with kids also like the breakfast.
Negative points Hotel Peacock: because the hotel does not have in-room air conditioning, it can get quite hot in the rooms during the summer months. Also, if you have a room on the street side you may have noise pollution. You can, of course, indicate in requests in your booking that you want to sleep at the back of the hotel with the family.
Hotel Nijmegen with swimming pool
