I have stayed at the Hotel Center in Brest twice in 2010-11, the latest time being a week in 2011. The hotel is a fine place to stay if you are in Brest on business, but don't expect any extra frills, this is definitely a 3-3.5 star hotel and not somewhere I would use for a holiday.
The location is good for business, but not necessarily if you want to stay in the centre of Brest, as it is a good 20 minute walk away from the main square and shopping area around Rue de Siam. Nonetheless, the hotel does have parking, which is behind the hotel - you have to drive round the block to find the entrance.
The rooms are of a good size and are cleaned to a very good standard. The bathrooms and showers are good, and I liked the cleansing mineral scrub which is provided every day. However, both times I noticed that on longer stays the staff are reluctant to provide toilet paper when the roll is clearly about to run out - this led to me hoarding a roll when one was finally provided.
The rooms all have large flatscreen TVs with a variety of French, English and American channels, as well as some standard European channels such as Italian TV. The in-room internet can be accessed via ethernet cable, which the front desk will happily provide free of charge - however, on my latest stay, both myself and a colleague were given ethernet cables which were obviously very old and kept disconnecting.
The staff are very friendly and eager to help, especially the front desk staff.
