    Historical Traveler Reviews Castex Hotel Paris

    Castex, charming and a great value

    from

    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

    OK

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Paris was defiantly what we expected, beautiful! From the nice streets and cafes to the beautiful old buildings and canals that run through the city. Our first afternoon in Paris was spent wandering around our neighbourhood which turned out only to be a 20 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower so we spent a few hours there lying in the sun and eating ice cream! Later that evening we grabbed a bottle of French wine and a block of French cheese and enjoyed them both (the $3 bottle ...

    ... of the city. We were very glad we did this. It is such a beautiful city and we were able to see all the sites of the city and enjoy some time together. After the boat trip we walked the streets and found a great place to enjoy a final romantic dinner in the city. It was a great day together and we enjoyed our time in Paris. We now leave in the morning with Bart and Tini to their summer home in south France and look forward to exploring other parts of the ...

    ... Before we knew it, 5.30pm was upon us and we had to head back to Paris, dragging along our aching feet from hours of walking on cobblestones. What really topped off a fantastic day, however, was returning to the hotel to find that Air France had finally delivered my luggage. Happy doesn't begin to describe how I felt. I have never hugged an inanimate object so fiercely as I did my suitcase when we got it back to our room. It definitely felt good going to sleep that ...
