Situaled in a quiet street a short walk from Bastille Metro, this hotel is easy for those reliant on public transport. And who would choose to drive in Paris anyway? The rooms are smallish (but aren't they all in Parisian hotels), but well furnished and equipped. A good place for two or three nights. Friendly and helpful staff.

I have stayed at the Castex many times and it is a nice, clean hotel that is located in a very central location. And it is quit. I would give it 4 stars

small room (standart in this district, as the housing possibilities are very narrow).
simple furniture, not very new but well maintained hotel. pleasent quiet, nevertheless very centrally located. attentive staff. room to courtyard light and air spoiled as there are not high buildings around. good mattress. good value on this expensive city!
only disadvantage: the breakfast is a disaster! 10 Euros can be spend much better, as for "plastic" cheese (in france!!!) and artificial (powder) scrambled eggs.
apart from that very good.

Two minutes walk from Bastille the hotel is central enough to be handy for most attractions and far enough away from the centre to be reasonably priced. Hotel Castex is a straightforward, Parisian 3 star hotel, so the room is small but very comfortable, the bathroom was excellent (new, clean, powerful shower, deep bath just what you need after a long day sightseeing) and the staff helpful without getting too involved. We liked it a lot and will go back next time we are in Paris

Very friendly hotel, very close to the Metro and within walking distance to the Latin quarter where we ate every evening - lots of choice of restaurants of numerous nationalities. The room was fine and had a new bathroom with good shower AND bath (much needed after a day traipsing round the sights). Several cafes nearby for breakfast. Good value for Paris.

A delightful hotel, with a PERFECT location. The BEST little place I've ever stayed in in the Marais District! A MOST enjoyable stay. Staff was very personable. The Reception area was friendly and well appointed (magazines, brochures/information), and warm to sit and prepare to visit the city!

It's on the list for next time.

Room Tip: Am not qualified to make such choices, having had just ONE visit to this hotel!! Maybe after the NE...

Surprisingly quiet street and an excellent location to explore Paris. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The complementary wine was a nice touch... and very tasty. There was sufficient storage but on the whole the room was a bit small but not unusual by Paris standards.The bed was very comfortable but the room was definitely not soundproof as described. The room could benefit from a better hairdryer and a minibar/fridge as this was also not present. Breakfast was more than adequate and on the whole we enjoyed our 4 days here. We would consider using them again.
