If you are in Poitiers, , this is a fine hotel for a day or two. On the first floor, the rooms are tiny, although other reviews indicate that third floor rooms (they cost more)- have balconies overlooking the main square. We found the hotel easy to deal with via the internet. We would suggest not taking their breakfast package,... More

Located in Place du Marechal Leclerc, adjacent to the Hotel de Ville, with the attractions of the old town close by, this is a great place to be. You might expect a rather grander establishment, but most of the ground and first floors are now a burger restaurant, so the entry is just a desk and the tiny lift to... More

I stayed for 3 nights in a Premium Double Room, which was one of the rooms on the top floor with a balcony. Thanks to previous reviews I was aware the hotel is not manned during parts of the day and I telephoned to warn them I would be arriving while the hotel would be locked. They provided me with...

The hotel itself is located in a beautiful square and we were lucky to have a prime view of the town hall and square through our lovely large window. However, due to travelling with a female friend and sharing a bed we felt as though we were constantly being judged and made us feel slightly uncomfortable. The rooms were nice,... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and overall thought it was great. It's in a fantastic location, and great value for money! We booked a comfort room through booking.com, which is described as "spacious, with a large bed", and having read the other reviews, we requested a balcony room overlooking the square. However, it turns out that there are... More

As always I use hipmunk.com for its extreme ease in booking flights and hotels (my best advice to fellow travelers!). Hotel Central is comfortable and worth it to stay overlooking the town square. Wife and I stayed 5 nights on the top floor with a balcony and an amazing view. Be sure to ask for a view – do not... More

A very small, very clean anonymous hotel. Perfect central location ,great view and secure parking at E5.40 for 24 hours. It is however so unremarkable that I had to invent this sentence to reach the 200 character minimum limit for a review.

Loved the location of this hotel! We had a room on the 3rd floor, with Balcony overlooking the large pedestrians-only Square. Nice clean modern room. Great bed. Very good continental breakfast. Room was small, but comfortable and had everything we needed. Only problem was the "iffy Wifi" which kept shutting down, and which is why my report is so short.... More

I would have never imagined travelling to Poitiers if it hadn't been a stop over from Paris to Libourne. Well, what the check, another place, another eye opener I guess. The hotel was not really far from the Railway Station but do be aware that it's located at the top of a hill.. Yes, the main town of Poitiers is... More

Imagine a hotel stay where breakfast is delivered to your room and you can enjoy it on the balcony overlooking the town square. That was our experience at Hotel Central. Ask for a room with a balcony. Breakfast is about 7 Euros/person, but it is delivered to your room. The only disadvantage to having a balcony is that if you... More
