2, Rue Victor Millot, Beaune, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte, France
"This property has it all: location, charm, excellent service & incredible hospitality. The six of us arrived at the train station with our luggage, in a downpour. Called the hotel and the owner, Edgar, was at the station to pick us up in minutes. As soon as we were in the car, he gave us a personal tour of Beaune, the surrounding villages and wineries, and how he came be the proprietor of Le Central Hotel that would continue until our departure two days later. The warmth and friendliness that Edgar and his staff exhibited was second to none. We met and drank wine with many of his local friends and colleagues who were constantly coming to the hotel to visit. Just an incredibly friendly and welcoming environment. We wanted to tour some wineries, and Edgar set up an amazing visit at the family run Dujardin winery in Monthelie and actually accompanied us. The hotel itself has been extensively renovated and boast a very modern interior but maintaining the charm and original exterior of this very old building. The rooms are spacious, clean and well laid out. Our room looked out over a beautiful inner courtyard and the hotel staff kept the place spotless. Edgar's restaurant, Gaspard, is next door and the food was amazing. If you want an authentic stay at locally owned establishment with a friendly and welcoming host, this is the spot!"
"I stayed here with my whole family - my dad, dad's girlfriend, grandfather, my sisters, and myself - and we're all American. As you can imagine, we can be a loud, difficult-to-please bunch, and people in a quiet, small French town such as Beaune might not be used to accommodating groups like us. However, Edgar, the owner of Le Central, was absolutely amazing and had it down pat. He was extremely helpful, kind, and personal - everything a hotel owner should be. This hotel deserves five stars for the hospitality alone, but it's also a beautiful property in a great location. The room's are clean and pretty, and it's only a few steps away from the center of town and the Hospital of Beaune, arguably the town's main historical attraction. I highly recommend this place for any type of traveler."
"We absolutely loved staying here - was such a nice surprise after a long days drive. After walking in without a reservation, but having seen them online, we felt welcomed immediately. The staff was very accommodating to our family, 2 adults and 2 toddlers and found a room that met our needs perfectly. They had a 'chill room' upstairs with books, games and a retro Pacman. They also offered fresh bottles of sparkling and still water to take up to the room with you. Unfortunately we arrived on a night the restaurant was not open, but we would have loved to eat there. Highly recommend. "
