Historical Traveler Reviews Central Hotel Paris
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.
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
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.

... see Monet's water lillies; then onto the Lourve for a small coffee break and to spend a couple hours wandering around the Lourve, after we headed to St Michel for lunch brfore getting a taxi back to the hotel to get ready for the Cabaret.
We went to Nouvelle Eve in Montmatre, and the show and dinner was awesome. Definitely something I had never experience before.
After we all headed to the bar next to the Moulin Rogue to sing and dance away our last night of the tour.
... about the city on a couple of occasions. A church, a merchant's neighbourhood, the government buildings, and a lovely lakeside lookout gave us the chance to see and photograph parts of this very beautiful city.
And then it was on to the airport. Again, by pure chance, the 'gang' had booked the same flight to Paris as we had. We checked in (and Cathy and I paid our extra $45 for each piece of luggage - as much as our seats cost) and then waited around ...
... the basilica is higher elevation, and the metro has to be below ground level, mom thought I said 9 stairs to climb in the metro to get to ground .. no 109 steps!!
did lots more walking, browsing the stores along the way.. This part of our month long trip has been more leisurely and spontaneous.. Visiting somewhere is not only about seeing the typical
tourist spots but also trying to get to know the people and the culture and areas within ...
We woke up at 6.00am playing UNO till 6.30am. I came second after Sam. We played two long games in half an hour. At 6.30am we finished and went on our iPods before breakfast. For breakfast we had coco pops and some fruit and every morning we have gone to the boulangerie . My favourite thing is the pain au chocolat. We then walked down the road and tried out some bikes but it didn't go very well. ...
... food preparer, we headed off in search of mint tea and Moroccan décor.
At the Mosque we were offered shisha. I’d never tried it, but the others had on their trips to Morocco. It was pretty strong and sweet, and much better than I’d anticipated it to be, but apparently quite bad for you. The others could make cool smoke shapes, but I couldn’t! After our lovely interlude at the charming Mosque, we walked to the 12th-century prison, ...
