“Convenient, comfortable and friendly - excellent base”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We spent the last 2 nights of a 3-week trip in this hotel. It was a great choice - Metro station almost across the road, walking distance to Marais district, rooms were modern and comfortable (we were on the third floor). The bathrooms were clean and modern, with plenty of hot water (perfect after a long day out sight-seeing), and the beds were very comfortable.
We had rooms facing the 'courtyard' and had no street or outside noise at all.

The small lift adds to the character and simply meant that we and our ample luggage made 2 trips up and down - not an issue at all.

We did not try the breakfast but decided to make the most of the local cafes for our last 2 days in Paris. The staff were very friendly and helpful, wi-fi was good, and we left our luggage at the hotel all day while we explored Paris until our airport taxi collected us in the evening.

One small note: the hotel walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbours quite clearly

Dear Madam,
it was a pleasure to celebrate the new year together with champagne and "foie gras" toast, as we used to do every year.
Hotel Ecole Centrale wishes you again a New Year of Joy, Success and Harmony.

Loved this hotel! Valerie was helpful in everything from dinner recommendations, to directions, to engaging in friendly conversation. The breakfast buffet had a great variety of fruit, protein, and french pastries. The location is in a great, central area, right next to the Metro. As a side note, the caramel candies in the bowl in the lobby are incredible delicious. I might have taken a whole bag worth ;)
Be warned of the small elevator, the inability to adjust the thermostat, and being given only one set of toiletries. Once you use them up, you have to pay to get more. I was only there for 3 days, so it wasn't an issue, but had I stayed longer, I would have had to buy more.
Overall, this hotel was wonderful and just what we were looking for!

Room Tip: Cannot adjust the thermostat. They keep it at 20 degrees celcius. Even in December, we had to open t...

Dear guest,
We are pleased that you have agreed the hotel.
To adjust the thermostat, you can ask the reception to do it for you.
Toiletries are welcome gift but you can find some more in wall dispenser and do not have to buy some.
We will enjoy to welcome you on your next stay in Paris.

This was my fifth trip to Paris and by far, this was my favorite hotel. The staff were outstanding providing guidance for restaurants, Metro trains to take, getting a cab for the airport and so much more. The room was comfortable albeit a bit small. And speaking of small, the tiniest elevator ever so beware if you are even marginally claustrophobic! The only knock I have on the hotel is that it was hot - super hot - and there was a "lock" of sorts on the thermostat so we couldn't cool the room off. Ugh. So we had to open the window which let in a lot of street noise (tip: request an interior room!) But overall, a truly wonderful experience. Breakfast was full of protein and pain au chocolate - yay!

Would I stay there again? Absolutely.

Room Tip: Ask for an interior room

Dear guest,
We are really happy to be your favorite hotel in Paris.
The rooms have the size required for three-star hotels in France.
You can change the temperature of the rooms with the thermostat on the room or ask the hotel reception to do it for you.
The hotel is located in a quiet street and has a courtyard at the back.
We will be very happy to welcome you during your next stay.

Location, Location, Location - that is the big selling point for this hotel. All the major sights such as Notre Dame or the Pompidou centre are all within walking distance. There is also a metro station very close to the hotel and you can get to Gare du Nord in very little time. On this particular trip to Paris we made a conscious decision to be based centrally. It is a bit on the expensive side and we payed 700 euros for nights on a special.

The room was comfortable. It was supposed to be a 'superior' room and as such an upgrade from their 'comfort' rooms. With this tag you would expect a little more but not so. However the bed was comfortable which after a days touring was very welcome. (As an aside we did look at the delux room - but as the toilet/bathroom forms part of the room we decided against paying the extra required)

A few downsides that the hotel could easily remedy!

Tea & Coffee making facilities - There is a very good machine in the room but they only provide caps for one day after which they charge a euro per cap. Making something simple expensive!

This money saving was carried through in the bathroom where they provided a 'welcome pack' which means in reality they only give you one set of shower gel etc regardless of how long you are staying for.

Breakfast - this was included with our room rate but otherwise it is 12 euros per person. The service was good and the food was what you would expect from a typical continental breakfast i.e cereal, breads, cold meat, cheeses and some scrambled egg - which was tastier than it looked!

Overall I would say this is a good standard 3 star hotel in an excellent location. So if location is important I would say stay here but if you are happy to use the metro then there is better value for money to be had a little further out.

Dear guest,
we would like to thank you for choosing our hotel in the Marais area in the center of Paris.
Our superior rooms are on the third to fith floor with more brightness than confort ones.
On our buffet breakfast, you will find hot food like poultry sausage and scrambled eggs in the chafing dish which is not part of a continental breakfast.
one tea, one coffee and one chocolate per guest are offered in the superior rooms, that means six drinks free for a double room and our guest have to pay only 1€ for additional drinks.
