“Good for the price, very clean and close to the Gare Montparnesse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I stayed in a room on the first floor of the receptionist (104). It was very tiny but clean. The rugs were old and the wallpaper, giving it a feel of being old and dirty but the shower, bathroom and sheets were all very clean. (There was not an outlet in the bathroom near the mirror to plug in items such as a curling iron).

I did stay alone but if 2 people were sharing this room, there really would not have been much room, and no room to put the luggage. If one does not mind that and is really just staying for the bed and proximity to the Gare Montparnasse, it is a good choice for the price.

I arrived very late at night and the reception was open 24 hours. I was able to have a late dinner just down the street and felt very safe walking alone.

The pictures shown on this site are not of the room that I stayed. My room looked very outdated. Not that I really care about feeling updated, it is more about the feeling of being in a clean room.
Just a little money in the rug, removing the wallpaper and adding fresh paint would really give the guests a better feeling that the room is clean. (and update the AC!)

My AC did not work very well at all. I did not feel safe leaving the window open because it would have been easy for someone to enter the room through the terrace. Luckily, the temperature was not very hot the night I stayed.

For a hotel just near the train station and for the age, it is very nice, small but clean and in my opinion, one of the most important things that a hotel must be.

Its located in a great area very close to the train station, and metro, breakfast wasn't very inspiring, only bothered with it one morning, and it wasn't very fresh, lift very small but when your on the 5th floor its good when out walking all day, the only problem we had was that some tablets (perscription medication) went missing, from room draw, not happy and made my stay a lot more painfull, other than that it was great, would go again but would keep meds with me. bed comfy apart from plastic sheet, so when warm it made you very hot and sweaty and not in a good way LOL. hotel reception staff very helpfull

Room Tip: try and get a refurbished room they are great, we were on the 5th floor

The location near Gare Montparnasse was great for our early train and the cleanliness was certainly up to par. However, broken elevator and meager room quality left a lot to be desired. I would stay here again, but only if it was a little cheaper and for a night or two.

In defense of the hotel, they are undergoing renovations (no noise problems, though), so maybe after everything is fixed up it'll be a different story.

I don't know if the fault lies with Central Hotel or EasyClick's description, but it turned out that breakfast was NOT included as advertised. Otherwise, we had no complaints with the hotel.

In my 7th time in Paris i've finally found a place that offers a good price and hardly can be beaten for location, cleanliness and kindness of the staff. The lift was a bit small but that's my fault , i should have carried less stuff. I have nothing to complain about this place. Love Paris

Close to a couple of metro stops.
With a patisserie downstairs.
Clean, not very expensive to be in paris downtown.
The staff speaks english more less..
It took sometime for us to decide for this hotel but I believe that it is a quite good place thinking both about quality and price.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Cosy and clean room and bathroom. Good location, right by Edgar Quinten Metro st. No problems at all. We were only there for 2 nights and our trip to Paris was fueled by sight seeing, so we used the room to literally sleep and it was perfect for that. Sat & Sun morning a market set up right by the hotel with fresh fruits and veges and other stuff. Lots of restaurants near by and small news agents nearby also. Would def return and recommend to others who are looking for somewhere comfortable to crash for the night.
