About Hotel Ecole Centrale, Paris

Quirky hotel with free WiFi on the fringes of the Marais

Notre Dame and Les Halles
Hôtel École Centrale places you in Paris’s 3rd arrondissement, 20 meters from Arts et Métiers Metro Station. Les Halles shopping plaza and the Pompidou Center art gallery are a 5-minute stroll, while a 20-minute walk takes you to Notre Dame Cathedral.

Trendy Marais
The boutiques, cafés, and restaurants of the lively Marais district are less than 1 km from Hôtel Ecole Centrale. You can visit the Musée des Arts et Métiers, less than a block from the hotel, for a peek at an incredible collection of early scientific marvels.

Historic charm
Upon entering this 17th-century building, you’ll know this is a hotel with character. A chandelier glitters above a mellow ochre lobby. In the cute, Indonesian-themed lounge you can sink into a cane sofa. Buffet breakfast features eggs and cheeses as well as fresh croissants.

Cheery rooms
You’ll find free WiFi and a flat-screen TV in your colorful guestroom. Printed drapes perk up each room, and the beamed ceilings remind you that you’re sleeping in a historic building. Minibars, iPod docks, air-conditioning, and premium bedding bring them forward to the 21st century.

Hotel Ecole Centrale, Paris
A Gem in the Marais
Hotel Ecole Central is a wonderful little gem in the Marais. It is clean, quiet, and conveniently located in a nice neighborhood. We stayed there for the New Year’s holidays and found it to be a great location and value. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable; the bathroom was modern with exceptionally clean.

OK location
Helpful staff. Small room, which you expect in Paris. The area was fairly convenient to Notre Dame and walkable but very noisy at night. Parking was expensive, as you might expect.

Hotel Ecole Centrale, Paris
Snug but Great Location
Great / helpful Front Desk service. Rooms were somewhat small but not uncommon for Paris hotels. The breakfast served by the hotel wasn't all that impressive and so we went once but didn't return for it. For the hotel's overall price and location - reasonable value.

Very nice
The hotel met our expectations for a 2 night stay to sight see and enjoy Paris. Hotel staff was very friendly and helped with setting up Taxi and 4 to go to the airport. Room was small but this is typical for all hotels like this. Very nice and we would stay again.
