The funny thing about having to leave a place that you feel comfortable and at home in is that you always feel like you are being dragged kicking and screaming even at the thought of having to leave.
Our alarm may have gone off early at 6am but we certainly took our time getting ready. Suddenly it was 9.10am. Realising that we were running …
Last minute panic shopping. Its what you seem to do when you realise that you have to leave the next day. We had managed to get just about each staff member to remember who we were in the two major stores in Paris. Those stores can have up and over 200,000 visitors a day during the busy periods (so I read somewhere, but can't remember where to make …
There's something about knowing that you have to get up early that makes you sleep lightly but also somewhat deeply at the same time.
In this case it was the excitement of knowing that we were getting up early, taking 2 connecting trains over the space of 15 minutes, arriving at Gare Du Nord, and then sitting on a high speed train for …
Knowing the it was a public holiday and that nothing was open we headed back to champs elysees (knowing the\at as its touristy and that it would be open) to return and exchange a pair of red pants. You may mock now but you will be wearing them too come spring.
that over and done with we walked back down the champs to place de la concorde, past …
Another beautiful cold day in Paris. Being easter saturday - i think; Its been so difficult remembering what day it is - nothing was open, so we decided that it was a good time to do the tourist thing and wander up and down the champs d'elysee, which we did by first catching the metro to the other end, to the arc de triomphe In the excitement of it …

Historical Traveler Reviews Starhotels Castille Paris
Beautiful hotel but,
Beautiful hotel but very small rooms. We stayed for 5 nights in October. The staff was friendly but not very helpful. The rooms were pretty but quite small. We were spending 2 weeks in Europe and had a lot of luggage and no where to store it in our room. We were falling over it! I would stay again, but only for a shorter amount of time, 5 nights was too long to stay in such a small room. The location was good, near shopping and sights. However, in Paris I would have liked to have a hotel with some extras--coffee maker--none, ironing board--none, extra towels--none, etc.
My husband and I took a four night trip to Paris and stayed at the Hotel Castille early this July. The hotel is on rue Cambon, a quaint, one-way street lined with Chanel and other top notch shops. Across this tiny street from the Castille, is the back entrance for the Ritz. Hotel staff is very helpful, from concierge to front desk staff and all speak some variation of English--most speak it fluently.
I stayed here for 4 days in late April and found it to be a great hotel. The location is perfect, near many sites that you'll want to hit, yet far enough off the main streets that it is peaceful. The staff was very helpful to my wife and I, answering any and all questions we had.
I have just returned from a three night say and would like to say what a pleasure it was and although I was expecting it to be good it was infact excellent! The hotel is in a good and quiet location. The room was nicely decorated, extremely clean and the Roger & Gallet toiletries were a lovely touch. It also had the best shower I have ever used in any hotel. Another nice touch was the maid who on our first nights stay knocked on the door to see if we required any more towels and then left us with two chocolates and a weather card for the next day. All the staff were smart, very pleasant and spoke good english. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone who was thinking of visiting Paris.
You are not welcome here.
Two years ago, I spent four nights at X-mas in this hotel. Surely the private and the public rooms are well worth 4 stars. But an adequate service is non existing. Unfriendly and arrogant at the front desk (when i asked for a taxi the concierge simply told me that this is not possible on 24th december...), rude and slow in the breakfast room (a waiter was argueing with his co-waitress in front of the guests). I will be in Paris this X-mas, but won't stay in this hotel again.
Paris is my favourite city and this 4*hotel has a great location near la Madeleine church/square and the Place de la Vendome. Small hotels are often blessed with a unique charm and ambience which was sadly lacking here. I was also disappointed that the hotel did not acknowledge my friend's 60th birthday celebration with any gesture whatsoever, despite prior notification. The buffet breakfast was limited and somewhat disorganised with an unfriendly and slow service. We experienced problems with faulty room keycards, broken window locks and an un-serviced room after returning from a full day sightseeing. Upon making these complaints, matters were dealt with in an insincere, if not stuffy, manner. However, the bedroom was nicely furnished and had French doors onto a balcony, overlooking the back entrance of the Ritz Hotel, but there are much better options in this price range (over £120 per night).
J'adore Hotel Castille!
I stayed at Hotel Castille a few years back and found the hotel to be just lovely. Our room was immaculate and well-decorated, the bathroom was gorgeous, with windows that opened out onto the street, the sink was set in an "antique" stand, and the whole thing was just impressive. The concierge and the other people working at the hotel were professional, well-versed in local restaurants, etc., and very nice. I can't wait to go back.
I also especially liked it's smaller size. I think you get a better feel for a city and for the essence of Europe in general when you stay in a smaller hotel. One final note - you cannot get a better location than Hotel Castille.
i stayed 4 nights in march 2004 in a classic room. the classic rooms are located in the back of the hotel and they are very very quite. i was offered an upgrade to deluxe room but the room is a little noisy because they face the steet so i passed the offer. the classic rooms are not so big but i guess they are standard paris size double room. the breakfast is very very good and so is the staff. i will return when i can.
This is a very nice hotel located on the street adjacent to the Place Vendome and just a few hundred yards from the Place de la Concorde.
Metro access is very good for sightseeing. The hotel has a lovely lobby and friendly (English speaking) staff. There was a problem with the air conditioning in the room we were assigned, but they immediately gave us a new room and upgraded us to a suite for our inconvience. There is a really nice Italian restaurant in the hotel as well. Overall, the hotel was very good. It is exactly what we expected for the price paid.
