      Historical Traveler Reviews Castex Hotel Paris

      Castex, charming and a great value


      We stayed there last June for 5 days. They upgraded our room to the 2 level suite for nothing ! It was so charming and comfortable.The front desk help is outstanding on arranging sights, train info, airport, etc etc. Its a great location near the bastille, you can walk to the seine.

      And buy the breakfast, it is very good. We are going back to the Castex, very reasonable cost.

      Nice people


      Nice people and comfortable

      We were on the third floor, and would have liked a lift. But niice, all the same

      After the first 4 days, I would have given this hotel great marks.

      That's before adversity hit on our 5th and 6th day. This is when I learned the extent to which they were concerned about their customers' enjoyment in Paris.

      To explain... On our last full day, the hotel abruptly told us (mid-morning) to pack and prepare to move rooms. Evidently, they had an electrician scheduled for the day. We had a ton of stuff and this really fouled up our morning and our evening. This was our "formal night" and we had to live out of suitcase and unfurl our previously pressed clothes.

      After that terrible inconvenience, on our getaway day, we scheduled a critical wake-up call. They then forgot to call!

      Having spent a lot of money at this hotel, we asked for some compensation. After being scoffed at and denied repeatedly, a manager finally called another manager and offered to take 20 euros off of our bill. Personally, I thought this was somewhat insulting.

      Otherwise, the people were great and the hotel was a fair value.

      However, after poking around, it seems like there are much better deals in the 4th.

      Book it!

      Outstanding hotel


      Everything about this hotel pleased my wife and I. Recently renovated - the rooms are good sized for Paris, the bathroom is large, and the housekeeping is impeccable. Maid kept putting our accessories in neat little rows. AC was a help during heat wave. Very quiet room, good firm bed, nicely appointed, cabel TV. Staff helpful and friendly. breakfast extensive for 8 euros. Newspapers in the lobby - those kinds of details. Close to Bastille metro.

      Loved It!


      Stayed at the Castex in summer 2002 and found the facilities to be excellent.

      Clean rooms,excellent location and the price was right!Can't think of anything else necessary for a good holiday hotel.

      Staff was friendly and quite helpful too- icing on the cake.

      Newly renovated, Great Value, Room a bit small.


      We stayed 4 nights at this 3-star, centrally-located hotel in April, 2003. The place was closed for renovations and re-opened just a week or two before we arrived. Even though the rooms are a bit small by American standards, it was the nicest place we stayed in in France and the owners paid careful attention to details to make our stay most pleasant. The neighborhood is good with many places to eat and a nearby metro station (Bastille) for sightseeing.With the recent renovations (meaning clean, modern rooms), excellent staff, and great location the hotel is a great choice. We recommend it.Hotel Website (in English): ...

      Don't like Parisians, but like the Castex


      So I went to Paris thinking all the stereotypes must be wrong - might bump into a grumpy Parisian or an unhelpful waiter - but most people will be nice. I was wrong. Most Parisians are grumpy even when you attempt to speak the language and boy did we try. The owners of the Castex were the exception, my wife and I found them to be friendly and helpful. They seemed to be trying to make up for the rest of the population. The rooms at the Castex are clean, but offer no frills. For the price who cares - because the great location in the Marais and only a few steps away from a metro makes this an ideal place to stay. Great rates too! Go to Paris, see the sights, smile at the grumpy people, and if you are on a budget stay at the Castex.

      Great staff, clean, comfortable, no frills


      We visited the Hotel in April-May 2001. The managers of Castix, Hector, and Herve did what ever they could to help us and make our time in Paris very nice.

      Directions, suggestions of lovely 'off the beaten track' sights, and hanging out at 2 in the morning watching some TV and chatting, the staff at this hotel were wonderful!

      Someone else said they had trouble with a cab that the Hotel ordered for them. We had no such problem, and I think that the cab company might be at fault.

      The location is great, close to the metro, and the Maris, and lovely small Paris streets, it seems like we saw some of the 'real' Paris, not just the tourist sites.

      Our room was small by 'merican standards, but who hangs in their room in Paris? We faced the street, Rue Castex, but it was quiet enough, and the lovely French full-length opening windows were nice.

      We set out early from Reims today so we could make a stop at the Factory Outlet on the way to Paris. It was exceptionally beautiful, but not much discounted !! Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors, Armani, Dolce & Gabanna etc. The we braved the Paris traffic..... All I can say (and I did, several times) is NEVER AGAIN! Last time Dave and I were in Paris the traffic was unbelievable, this time it was worse ...

      ... you wound around the edge of the tower and got to see spectacular views from up there. We got on another little cart which took us to the higher platform which really was high. It was quite small up there but you could do the 360 degree thing and we did get some amazing photos. We got down and it was just after four so we headed back in behind the Eiffel tower to a platform they have further back where you can take really good photos and I wanted to take some ...

      ... They are missing the highly decorated or tapestry covered walls that you see elsewhere. After visiting the inside, I spent the majority of my time in the gardens and the other buildings on the grounds. My favorite was visiting the farm of Marie Antoinette's estate. I can imagine that in the life of a royal, it would be nice to have an informal area to retreat to. Since I was there on a Sunday, I was able to see the fountains turned on and classical music ...
