A comfortable room in a basic 3 star hotel. A short walk to many attractions. Whilst in the Marais district it is closer to the Bastille area. Helpful staff with airport transfers, wifi, printing boarding passes etc.

* Overall * Charming hotel with a helpful staff, clean rooms, and comfortable beds. Not luxurious by any means, but functional. Bathroom fixtures (showers, fans) could use an upgrade. * The Good * Terrific staff - Genuinely tried to make my stay in Paris memorable. Willing to provide directions, look things up, give recommendations, and everything and anything in between.... More

A bit disappointed, the room is not well cleaned, there's only 1 socket for charging battery and my most concern is once i got into my room, the internet signal is cut automatically (the hotel has very bad internet connection). The price is too expensive compare to the room and what hotel offer. Location is good, a lot of restaurants,... More

These were the most comfortable beds we had in France so far. Make sure you get a room away from the street. Ours was a bit noisy at night and first thing in the morning. Breakfast was okay. You'd be better off going down the street to a bakery. The rooms have refrigerators so get your own snacks and such... More

If you are looking for a reasonable, clean, comfortable hotel in a great location then the Castex Hotel is for you! The hotel is 2 short blocks from the hop on- hop off bus stop, close to the Metro and in a safe area. The front desk is manned 24/7 and the security in the hotel is beyond great.

My husband and I stayed at the Castex for seven nights during our honeymoon in Paris. The hotel is conveniently located in the popular Marais neighborhood, and it is very close to the Bastille Metro stop. Also, the hotel is right across the street from a post office, in case you need to ship items home or get stamps for... More

I always hesitate to write a review of this hotel for fear too many people will discover it and decrease room availability. This was my 6th visit to the Castex Hotel and as always, it was absolutely wonderful. First and foremost, Eskender, our gracious host, is always most helpful and is there to make sure our stay is everything we... More

Room very very small but clean, with all things as described, including an easy to use safe box. On this recent visit the room had a kettle and coffee and tea provided (no milk), so I had taken my travel kettle for nothing! An improvement on previous visits. The fact that this hotel is only 2/3 minutes walk from the... More

While the photos of this hotel illustrate a quaint courtyard, unless you stay in one of the three or four rooms facing it; you will have a completely differ bent experience than this photo implies. Upon arrival, I was "greeted" by a disinterested surly man who grunted to tell me to take the key and store my own luggage. The... More

We just spent 4 nights there. The location is fantastic, the room comfortable, impeccably cleaned and quite spacious. The staff are so helpful. We checked out and after cancelled Eurostar left us stranded - at midnight - hotel took us back. The night manager went out of his way to help us and make us welcome.

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.
