Like most of Paris hotels, Central Hotel's rooms are small but they are ok and light. Pros: 1- The hotel has a perfect location; area is very live, full of restaurants, supermarkets/malls. 2- It is in the middle between the major metro station "Montparnasse Bienvenue" and the stations "Edgard Quinet" and "Gaite", 5 minutes walking to each. 3- Montparnasse Train...

We stayed here one night to break up our journey as we had travelled on Eurostar and wanted a day in Paris with a hotel in Montparnasse as we had a TGV journey next day. This hotel is literally a 5 min walk away but a little oasis with local bars and cafés right on the doorstep. The hotel appears... More

I stayed in this Montparnasse spot in 2004, 2009, and 2012, each time because I was taking a train to Bordeaux and then coming back to Paris to catch a plane. If this is your itinerary, or something like it, the Central Hotel is perfect. It's a short block from the Montparnasse train station, and a bus from/to CDG leaves... More

I had a single room (Room #20) that was big enough for me with a "garden view." Don't be fooled. It's a dump out back. Keep the curtains closed if you're on that side. The bathroom was also pretty small, but doable. The towels were completely worn and to my absolute shock, the maids did not bring fresh towels when... More

Hubby, 12 yr old daughter & I stayed here for 3 nights recently. Well placed for bars, restaurants & metro. Room was of a reasonable size & our daughters bed was a large single, not a sofa bed, & it was very comfortable. Our bed was also comfortable & the bathroom a good size too. Shower was excellent. We were... More

It was a last minute deal and when booked it didn't specify no AC for single room. It's really hot in summer. And night time there's street noise as it's backyard for other apartment and day time there's construction noise across the street. The internet is unusable. I could hear noise from next door and people's door slam at night.... More

We had 2 very good days in the hotel. The room (superior room) was small, but clean and modern/renovated. The bathroom was also new, beautifull and functional. The bed was ok, but nothing special. Even couples would some times like NOT to share beddings, but no extra set of blankets, etc was available. Windows to the busy (busy with people... More

My experience with Central Hotel Paris is based on a stay in Superior Room. I think the quality of accommodation is significantly lower in Standard rooms, but my room was really cozy and clean with very clever located and surprisingly spacious wardrobe. The room was also very quiet at night. Bathroom is fresh, clean and spacious. There are a lot... More

We stayed in this hotel about 10 years ago and at the time it was really cheap by Paris standards and I guess it still is good value - we paid E173 per night. It's been refurbished in the mean time so the rooms look good but our room was tiny. Two steps out of the double bed and you... More

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighborhood Profile
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
