Great Hotel - Irish Couplefrom A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel has a great web site but sadly not the same in reality!from lissan
On a positive and final note I would like to state that the staff and recepitonists were extremely friendly and helpful.
Enjoyable stay at Central Hotelfrom LaRa12
The breakfast was included with the price of our room and consisted of croissants, baguettes, jelly, butter, coffee, tea and juice. We found this to be pretty substantial to get us started on our travels for the day.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful to us. We used the wonderful metro system and found it very convenient to get around the city.
This was our first trip to Paris and we loved the city and found the Parisians to be quite helpful and friendly. We will definitely consider staying at Hotel Central in the future.
Really goodfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Our room (double superior) was clean, the toilet and bathroom were new, the staff was friendly, and at €80 (for 2 persons) breakfast was indeed included, which usually is not the case. A typical french breakfast consists of one croissant, one piece of baguette, rather good tea or -to my taste- horrible coffee, some butter and marmelade. That's what they serve in the Central as well. Our bed was better than average (I am 6ft 4in). There is a very large Inno supermarket nearby where you can get yourself everything you desire. Being dutch, we got ourselves some baguettes, soft drinks, etc and ate it in our room. I had with me my wonderful little water cooker (tea, coffee, cup-a-soup) and did not get any remarks about this.
My conclusion: small room but very good as for price/quality, especially if you want to economise on your hotel budget, but not on the other things paris has to offer. One last advice, especially for our american friends: I think that the french are NOT ruder or more arrogant than other people, but sense they are more and more becoming a minority "in a continent that is being dominated by american customs and values". Make the effort and get yourself acquainted with a few stock phrases. Lots of parisians DO speak a few words of english, but like to hear you make this effort first.
PS: What I also liked about the location: you are one metro stop away from Denfert-Rochereau, from which you can take the RER (fast metro) to the airport (CDG): 30-40 minutes.
Very good budget hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Realyl nice hotel in Parisfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent value at central hotel parisfrom bledbetter
Great budget hotelfrom benuzair
We booked a superior double room, with breakfast included (croissant, baguette, oj, choice of tea/coffee/hot chocolate). The room was small but nevertheless comfortable and quiet. The bathroom looked like it was recently renovated; the fixings looked brand new and the water pressure was excellent. Staff was very friendly, even though we didn't spoke much of french. Check out time was at noon and the staff allowed us to store our luggage behind the front desk until it time for us to leave for the airport.
Decent hotel for the pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Top Local Tips for Paris
Get your Metro tickets sent before your trip! You can get your Paris Visite passes through the post (it costs a few Euro more) which means you avoid the queues at Gare de Nord. Worth the extra money, especially if your French is a little rusty!
exit at Montparnasse If you're arriving by metro and have luggage (even pull-along) exit subway at Montparnasse instead of trnsfering to line 6 underground. Way too many steps and logistics to make the transfer. Much easier to get above ground and find the hotel on the flat. Hotel is equidistant between the two stations - 2 short blocks from either station, Montparnasse or Edgar Quinet. We used Montparnasse station except when we could stay on line 6 (diret to Eiffel Tower, etc). In other words, don't use Edgar Quinet and transfer lines at Montparnasse station, just use Montparnasse as your entry/exit point if you're using one of the six or so lines that serve it. I bought Paris for Dummies and loved it - great, easy to use metro map. Also bought Paris street map in advance at mapquest website. Wonderful.
Skip the metro... take the bus! Taking the bus is an excellent way to see Paris: the metro is fast, but being underground you can find that you have missed much of the very pretty architecture of the city. Hop on the bus and see the city!
