“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

The Castex Hotel situated in Bastille is in an excellent position to wander around Paris. It is close to shops, the train station and the Seine river.
The hotel itself is excellent. Our room was freshly and pleasantly decorated with lovely sheets and towels. It was clean and had everything we required.
The extra bonus was the extremely friendly and polite person at the reception.

A charming hotel that is a very convenient to travller as It is near train stations, cafés and restaurants and near two large grocery store. Room and bathroom was decent sized by Paris standard and clean. Breakfast is served every morning for additional money, but is convenient if short on time. Breakfast was decent.

Great staff! Very welcoming and helpful and a free red wine is at your room upon arrival.
Hotel could arrange for minivan transportation to airport at extra charge which was quite convenient. Would stay at here again when I visit Paris again! merci

The hotel is well located, not far from the Notre Dame. Rooms are clean, bathroom is clean and the service is good. However, the rooms are very small and nothing special.
But for the online reservation price (107 EUR/2per/night) it is a good deal in Paris.
So if you are staying for a few days and you are looking for something cheap and good enough, this is a good choice.

PC: But "Boutique" hotel? That is not correct. Don't know why they would say that.

we only had a night there but wished for more, it was very well run and great breakfast, rooms were lovely and good sized bathroom, the staff are very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed immensely, it is only around the corner from the Bastille and not far from the River Seine.

Room Tip: we had 2 rooms on ground floor with courtyard were very good, loved it

Rooms were clean, the area around Bastille is great and very safe. The breakfast was basic, but good value for the price. WARNING: do not let the receptionist fool you into booking a taxi to the airport. He will charge you 90€, and suspiciously asks for a "40€ deposit by card". I don't understand why the hotel would take a deposit for the taxi company. To get to CDG airport, take the metro to Gare du Nord, and then take the RER B train which goes directly to the airport. It takes about 40 mins and costs around 14€. The metro station is right next to the hotel. All in all, the perfect hotel if your looking for a great location in the centre of Paris for a competitive price.

My family has stayed at the Castex many times in the last few years. We love the location; a few minutes walk takes you to the Marais; a longer walk takes you to all the best of Paris' sites. The people at the front desk are helpful and friendly. We could only stay 3 days, but there will definitely be a next time!

The best part about the hotel is the extremely helpful staff. We were welcomed warmly and the chevk in was very smooth. We only spent one night and hafd to leave early morning. The staff offered us the use of breakfast room as early as 6 am. Although the fresh food was not there, we were very happy to get tea coffee curds toast cheese and butter.
