If you go with your family, I strong suggested rent an apartment that is designed for a family. As my experience, I rent a 100 meters apartment complete with little garden in front of it. And it is quite cheaper than renting a room in a hotel. Another advantage of apartment renting is that we can be free to have vacation all day long as well as we can eat in relax and private, since there is also a private kitchen in it.
