      Historical Traveler Reviews Central Hotel Paris

      Great Location


      The Central was very well situated for transport, shopping, eating but I know its price for high season would have been reasonable but for any one who wanted a shower it is not the place to go unless you are happy to have water from one end of the bathroom to the other. They obviously do not believe in shower curtains. I dont think our room was one that had been upgraded and there was a lot of stepping over carpet being laid in the hallways etc. . I dare say when it is all renovated it will be much better. I must say it was clean and staff where pleasant. We only stayed one night because we had private accommodation for our other four nights. We only had a couple of minutes walk from the Air France Bus and the massive Montparnasse station.

      A nice place to stay


      The place is nice. The location is good. You have a metro station 1 minute by foot, you have a lot of cafes, a market on the weekend, and a few supermarkets near if you need to buy something.

      The room was clean and quiet.

      Amazing value and front desk staff


      After searching the internet for two months, I finally chose this hotel because the value and location seemed matched by excellent reviews. It was amazingly good in all areas with very helpful front desk staff, daily careful room cleaning and even some very well done bathroom make-overs. The lift is normally small for older hotels but works well and does what it needs to do. The area is close to three underground stations and filled with places to eat. The nearby Market at Edgar Quinet has art on Sunday and food, makeup, music and clothes on Wed. All were incredible with excellent variety, and quality range. Sadly, USA Today just gave this hotel an excellent review, so the prices may go way up. Expect some very plain rooms, but wonderful value. Simple excellent continental breakfast.

      Great Location, Great Staff


      The Central is, true to the name, centrally located near the massive Montparnasse train/Métro station, which makes it very accessible via the trains or the Air France airport buses.

      The rooms are an excellent balance of value and features: comfortable beds, great bathrooms, and modern outlets, appliances, etc. The staff is friendly and eager to help. An excellent hotel to stay at.

      Great Spot


      My girlfriend and I recently spent a week in Paris and stayed 7 nights in the Central Hotel.

      The bedroom was beautiful, just like what we saw pictured on the internet when we booked the hotel. The bathroom was a fine size and very clean. Cleaners came everyday to make the bed, bring fresh towels and make the room spotless. The staff were very pleasant and spoke good english.

      The location is superb also, two doors down is Brussels restaurant where you will get a beautiful meal at a very decent price if you are on a tight budget. Next to Brussels is Cafe Tournesol which is a trendy spot to go at night for a few cocktails, the drinks are very cheap.

      There is a metro stop two minutes down the road and a supermarket even closer.

      All in all I would highly recommend the Central Hotel to anyone wishing to visit Paris

      c'etait superb

      Central Hotel - True to its name


      We recently stayed at the Central Hotel in Monparnasse (4 nights) and I highly recommend it. We paid EU65/night (including taxes) for a double room.

      The hotel: rooms are well sized and clean, breakfast is ample, the staff was helpful, and the price ~ very competitive. Most of the facility has recently been remodeled. A legit 2-star ideal for singles, couples, and families.

      Enough about the hotel, the location is to die for.

      You're one block from where the Air France bus stop (to Orly or CDG) and Gare Monparnasse. ½ block from bustling streets of cafes, restaurants, and pubs. These aren't tourist places (in a good way) so you're getting a local flavor.

      Within 5 minutes, you are at the start a major shopping district (Rennes) and the Lafayette Shops (at the base of the 55-floor Monparnasse Tower) are even closer.

      Gare Monpromasse is a sizable metro and regional train station providing quick access to all the major sites and lively districts (Odeon, La Sorbonne).

      If you really want to soak in some real Paris with the tourist Paris...the location offers an ideal blend.

      gardens to the Louvre. Once at the Louvre i tried to go through the entrance that i used before but it was closed, so i went looking for another, but had to go for the main one under the pyramid. It was a long line, mainly to get through security, then there were machines and desks on ...

      ... those that have gone out of business, or been replaced by something else. As we reached Le Cepage Montmartrois, we stared nostalgically at the rue Juste Metivier, which is really a set of stairs that lead up to the ave. Junot, where we had rented an apartment for three-weeks in 2005. Dee remembers these stairs vividly, since we lugged many a bag of groceries up them, usually when we were dragging our derrieres at the end ...

      ... already, lets do it right. We went down to the lower level of the top floor to get away from the wind and watched as the city became dark. Paris lights up inn every direction. I am very happy that we went at night to see the view of day, sunset then dark. There was some excited cheering while we were at the top. I thought it
      was fireworks, but it turned out to be someone getting engaged.

      We headed down to the second level of the tower to take a look ...

      We caught the metro back to the Arc de Triomphe, and went back down the Champs Elysee. We bought cabin bag from an arcade off this 'most beautiful avenue in the world'. Well, we couldn't find a K-mart. We hadn't had lunch, and the gaggles of Asian girls taking selfies in front of absolutely everything were very annoying, so we caught the train home. At home we had some chocolate and a sleep, and we are just about to go back out to get dinner locally. If I have ...
