          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.

          Dear all,

          ...Well, that went okay.

          Optimism was unconfined as we set off on our Euro 2016 odyssey. For us London-based supporters, a tournament in France meant that we could get there by train. And so Sunday morning, St. Pancras International was seemingly overrun with green-clad denizens of the London Irish ex-pat community …

          So after resting for a bit, off we went. We walked down towards Eiffel, over to Invalides, over to Pont Alexander III (such a beautiful bridge), over by the Grand Palais - oh - one ...

          ... James and Sarah fed them! We have very fun pictures of our trip, including these relaxing moments. The next adventures had us going in different directions. Sarah and James hadn't seen the Rodin Museum yet so they headed that way while Rick and I went to visit Sacre Cœur. Our first metro ride was successful. After we figured out how to buy tickets, we decided to exit at Gar du Nord. I've always enjoyed seeing the insides of train stations. Gar de Nord was a ...

          Today was the coldest (9 degrees this morning!) and later the dampest day so far so we thought an indoor activity was a good choice. We walked to the Galleries Lafayette which is near the Opera House - in Rick Steeves book he suggests going up to the top floor and then walking a short flight of stairs to the rooftop for some great views, so we did! Although it was a grey day, we could still get quite ...
