The location was superb, near the metro and train station,with nearby restaurants, on a charming street with a playground across the street. The hotel was clean, breakfast was good, staff were helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

It is a basic hotel, but for me its location to Gare Montparnasse. It was an easy walk with hiking pack to catch the TGV. The staff were friendly and were happy to speak English. It was located near plenty of restaurants and a shopping mall.

As a solo traveller on a trip for work, this hotel met my needs perfectly well. The room was fairly basic, and the decor and furnishings could do with an update - but it was clean and well-maintained with a comfortable enough bed. The free wi-fi was also reliable and of a decent speed, so my needs for this trip... More

Near a lovely local Saturday market and shops and also a supermarket for grabbing the essential cheese bread and wine french picnic to have in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. The hotel was clean and staff very friendly - our room was spacious with a lovely bathroom and nice full length windows that open so you can hear the... More

After a grueling couple of flights from Portland, Oregon into Paris I was too exhausted to get on a train dragging 3 pieces of luggage to travel to Laval, France. So my fiance and I went into Paris near the Montparnasse train station and found this lovely hotel. The people speak english fluently and were very accommodating. They had satellite... More

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

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.
