About Hotel Ecole Centrale

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
A very good choice in the Marais
A very friendly comfortable and clean hotel near to but not within the bustle of the Marais. Highly recommended

Hotel Ecole Centrale
Weekend stay in Paris
Location of the hotel is great (easy to get to from Gare du Nord) with a couple of different metro lines nearby. Walking distance to the main parts of Le Marais, Republique, and Canal St Martin. The staff was amazing and very friendly. The hotel is comfortable and the rooms are spacious (for Paris). Didn't try the breakfast but there are a few boulangeries and restaurants nearby so plenty of options.
Ryan, gb2 night trip
Hotel Ecole Centrale
Horrible customer service, rooms poorly maintained
When you're traveling, a hotel is all about a place to get some rest so that you can enjoy your time during the day. I stayed at Hotel Ecole Central for 6 nights. The second night I began hearing a loud, intermittent buzzing sound. It was loud enough to be startling and to wake me up but there was no way to tell when another buzz would happen. I called the night clerk and he came up but it didn't occur during the time he was there and he left without any assistance. The next night it was worse and I was able to video record the noise and play it for the clerk. He finally believed me and told me they will change my room the following night. Two nights now I've missed sleep because of the noise. The next morning the day clerk told me she will look into it but makes no promises. I come back in the evening and she told me there was a problem with the air conditioner (shock!) and the technician has come, taken it apart, but not fixed it. So, no more noise but now no air conditioner and a hot, stuffy room to sleep in. They again refused to put me in a different room. Three nights now of poor sleep. They finally fixed it on my last night there. The day clerk, Valarie, was especially rude and unhelpful. They did not offer to discount my room, but offered me a free 12Euro breakfast as compensation for my 3 nights of poor sleep.

Perfect charming hotel❗️Very clean and comfortable
Staff was amazing and accommodating. Very clean room including the bathroom. Bed and pillows clean and comfortable. Lots of closet space and shelving in room and bathroom. Perfect stay for what you need after walking and touring all day. It’s so nice to walk into comfort and get the rest that’s needed. Loved the cute elevator that was quick and cozy. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our early arrival😃 Thank you❗️Will definitely go back to Hotel Ecole😊
