I recently stayed at this property for the second time, first time was a few years back. The things I liked held true again: it's a good location with access to numerous metro lines, clean, and has friendly and helpful staff. This time I had a room in the back versus the street, definitely much quieter. Best of all, front... More

Nice hotel. Very friendly staff. Room fine but small. Issue with noise from stair and lift. Good location. Deco is a bit old style would be nicher with out the heavy browns and wrought iron headboard. Clean.

Small, but nice rooms. Great location near Bastille where you find buses and Metro station. Also lots of restaurants and I can really recommend Brasserie Bofinger, who is just around the block. The staff was very friendly, helping out with taxi, how to travel to places we wanted to visit.

We stayed in Castex hotel lately for 4 nights. Great location , Bastille metro station nearby, lots of nice restaurants and shops in the area. Our room was located on the ground floor on the courtyard next to small private garden. The room was clean with a big bathroom. No carpet so I reccomend you to take slippers with you.... More

The location of this hotel is superb, being only a couple of blocks from the Bastille Metro station. There are many restaurants in the area. The hotel itself was very clean and well cared for. Our room was off a courtyard in the back, very quiet and private. Bathroom was quite large for European standards. All the staff were extremely... More

Hiccup with the booked room, not the hotel's fault, and the staff were very quick to offer a solution. Very helpful and friendly. Handy location, easy to get around and close to the Metro. Would stay again.

The perfect location for visiting Le Marais. Located a few steps away from the Place de Bastille. Wonderful breakfast spread to start the day. Rooms are smaller (to be expected) but very clean with a modern bathroom. Provided a free bottle of wine which was excellent. Friendly staff. I definitely recommend and would stay again.

I have been staying at Castex occasionally for maybe ten years, roughly since the renovation that moved it from two to three stars. Was there again earlier this week. I really like the location. Decent restaurants at reasonable prices around. Good stores, in a lively neighborhood they's easily accessible. Simple hotel, rooms are small but at least these in the... More

This hotel isn't anything fancy at all, but it is charming. The receptionists are hospitable, and the location is great. The breakfast served in the basement is basic but a good option if you're on the run. The beds are a little hard, but I would certainly return.

Close to the clubs and bars of the Bastille. They let you put your bikes in the courtyard. Breakfast is an expensive 11 euros each. But you get a free bottle of red wine in the room. The bedroom was small, but that's Paris. Free internet and computer in reception area is useful. This hotel does exactly what it says... More
