Title says it all. This is probably one of the worse hotels I have ever stayed in. First off, it is in a very questionable part of Paris. There were lots of very shady people hanging around the area from early in the morning until well after midnight every night. The location bit aside the room was not very clean.... More

The only thing that could be said in this hotels favour was it was cheap. Located in a questionable area, this hotel can only be described as very basic. Lights did not work, tiles in the bathroom were cracked, toilet roll holders broken, plugs hanging out of the wall, curtains not fully attached to the curtain rail. A shower curtain... More

It's certainly NOT a three-star hotel. The toilet didn't flush, the bed was uncomfortable and the bedside table broken. It was dingy and run-down, noisy and people hanging around the streets outside made me feel uncomfortable.

Before I start, the hotel I am reviewing is the one on 66 rue de Chateau d'eau. DO NOT confuse it with a similarly-named hotel located at 1 Bis Rue du Maine (decent reviews for this seem to exist), or you will be sorely disappointed. This hotel is in an alarming district of Paris--essentially it is surrounded by hair salons... More

It is located in african part of Paris. Rather noisy but we didn't worry about it. Absolutely terrible: dust and durt everywhere, all devices in bathroom have been broken, old furniture and interior, small elevator, unfriendly hotel's owner. One advantage is location: near metro "Chateau d’Eau" and close to centre. It is the worst hotel of all my travels.

We booked through easijet and mistakenly booked in here for 4 nights without checking reviews- bad mistake. The room was tacky and bathroom appalling. The bathroom windows had old dirty adhesive plastic peeling from the panes as the only screening from the street/apartments across the alley so you couldn't use it a night with the light on. Basic maintence was... More

The hotel we booked online had a problem so they sent us here instead. It was a grotty hotel in a very noisy area. It had 3 stars painted on the wall of the hotel but it was definitely not a 3 or 2 star hotel. There were loud & agressive people hanging around the streets all around. The stairs... More

First off, please do not confuse Hotel Central Paris with the Central Hotel Paris - these are very different hotels. Before I trash it, I will say this hotel has some good points: 1) staff is very nice 2) room itself is not actually all that bad 3) the hotel is very close to the metro - like 20 ft... More
