The hotel is well located, not far from the Notre Dame. Rooms are clean, bathroom is clean and the service is good. However, the rooms are very small and nothing special. But for the online reservation price (107 EUR/2per/night) it is a good deal in Paris. So if you are staying for a few days and you are looking for... More

we only had a night there but wished for more, it was very well run and great breakfast, rooms were lovely and good sized bathroom, the staff are very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed immensely, it is only around the corner from the Bastille and not far from the River Seine.

Rooms were clean, the area around Bastille is great and very safe. The breakfast was basic, but good value for the price. WARNING: do not let the receptionist fool you into booking a taxi to the airport. He will charge you 90€, and suspiciously asks for a "40€ deposit by card". I don't understand why the hotel would take a... More

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

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!
