My partner and her friend booked to stay for two nights this coming week. Due to her friends father having a heart attack, she could not travel to meet my partner. We checked the cancellation booking made on booking.com and it did say non refundable. That's understandable when making bookings, but I called the hotel to ask whether, due to... More

Very pleasant hotel within walking distance of Les Marais, Paris Metro and other sights. Quiet and clean, with good quality linens and a very helpful front desk staff. Breakfast was very fresh but there is also a good patisserie right around the corner.

Tucked away in an alley, hidden within the vibrant Marais neighborhood, Hotel Castex does not disappoint. With charming rooms, complete with a small bottle of wine, a room safe and hairdryer - what more could you ask for? The service was friendly and available at all times. The central outside patio is tiny but adorable - perfect for a morning... More

Great location for access to Bastille Metro and Marais sites. Staff was very helpful. Room and bathroom very clean, however, the room was very small. Barely room for our large suitcases, but that was the only downside. For Paris, it is worth the price.

We had triple room on 5th floor. We didn't feel like we were in Paris. It was that quiet. All the staff we encountered were very nice. On our way to train station I realized I had one earring on. I knew where I had it. I called hotel and asked receptionist to look for it. He found it. I... More

this hotel was an utter disappointment from beginning to end. We arrived exhausted and jet lagged having taken an 11 hour flight from California to be entirely ignored by the front desk as we waited with our bags. It was awkward. We stood, smiling as he sat at his desk two feet from us and pretending we were not there.... More

Its 5 mins walk fr Bastille metro station and 1 train station away to Gare De Lyon train station (as i was travelling to... More

We enjoyed our stay at Castex Hotel. The hotel is in a great location very near the Bastille subway stop. We loved all the cafes and fruit stands that were near by. The staff was accommodating, locking our luggage up upon arrival as we got to Paris very early in the morning. Our room was small but nicely decorated. We... More

First trip to the Castex was in 1999 with my family and we had such a good time I have been recommending it to friends ever since. Returned recently with a friend to attend the French Open. Still a wonderful location, clean but smallish room and nice bathroom with great water pressure. The front desk was always helpful and I... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
