My family has stayed at the Castex many times in the last few years. We love the location; a few minutes walk takes you to the Marais; a longer walk takes you to all the best of Paris' sites. The people at the front desk are helpful and friendly. We could only stay 3 days, but there will definitely be... More

The best part about the hotel is the extremely helpful staff. We were welcomed warmly and the chevk in was very smooth. We only spent one night and hafd to leave early morning. The staff offered us the use of breakfast room as early as 6 am. Although the fresh food was not there, we were very happy to get... More

We have stayed here many times, going back to 1991, long before this was a three-star hotel. The staff are like old friends, and, while the new additions are great (elevators, A/C, TVs) and while the benefits of its location are obvious, the character of the hotel and its management are what make it great.

Just got back after staying at the Castex Hotel in Paris and they were wonderful. We stayed 8 days and received excellent service. Everyone was pleasant and nice and the concierge(s) were most helpful. Couldn't beat the location, walk out your door and everything is within reach and close to Metro. I plan on staying there again when I'm in... More

We chose the hotel as it was the only one we could find that accepted bikes. We stayed there at the start and end of our epic cycle journey along the Loire. The first guy on reception was friendly and welcoming telling us to put the two bikes in the tiny little internal courtyard. The room was small but spotlessly... More

Hotel Castex was the most wonderful experience for my daughter and me. The hotel is clean, comfortable, personable, quiet, and perfectly situated! Breakfast is the best! Great restaurants in the area, most accessible to metro and the perfect spot from which to explore the real Paris! The staff is warm, engaging and very helpful! Would go back in a second!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Castex Hotel. The staff was very friendly and professional. Clean comfortable room, small, but fine. The location is excellent, three blocks from the Place des Vosges, one of the most beautiful squares in the world. This Le Marais neighborhood is a must for any visitor to Paris, and the easy access to the... More

This hotel is well situated in the Marais - great access to the metro and walking distance to many popular sites in Paris. It is a couple of blocks from the Bastille (which is very loud and busy), but the hotel is on a very quiet street so noise is not an issue. The staff is very helpful and speak... More

This is a great small hotel! Central location near the Bastille metro station, very clean, quiet (sound-proofed doors, windows etc.), with very friendly staff. Nice ambiance and very charming. Room was not big, but this is true of most Paris hotels - even some much more expensive ones. I would definitely recommend and go back myself.

This is a good three star hotel in a fabulous location. Easy walking to Notre Dame, Louvre, latin district, Pantheon. Great subway access. Have stayed here three times and would recommend. Parisian rooms are typically small but this hotel is a reasonable price for Paris!
