Rooms are not massive but they very clean, well-equipped and quiet. The breakfast is a bit basic and not really worth the money so I would recommend trying one of the many cafes nearby instead.

This was my second stay at the Castex in Paris, and was booked without hesitation. The hotel's location is great, with an easy stroll to the Bastille metro station, and an easy walk to the Marais and beyond. The service is very good, with English spoken freely. Will definitely stay again when next in Paris.

First stay at the Castex, and I'd definitely go back. The rooms are small but well laid out and very comforrtable. The bathrooms are good sized and mine had a real shower - with a curtain - over the big bathtub. The hotel is in a great location in the Marais. Just a short walk from the Bastille Metro, and...

The reception team is very helpful and they speak very good english. They helped us looking for restaurants and parking. The location is perfect: two blocks far from Bastile metro station, 5 minutes walking to reach Ile St-Louis and Notre-Dame and 10 min to Quartier Latin. Good value.

This was my third time at the Castex and as always I was not disappointed. Close to the lively Bastille and the elegant Marais and there is the metro stop Bastille and also plenty of bus options . It is close enough to walk to all the major sites and also plenty of great restaurants and shopping near-by. The rooms...

My husband and I stayed for our first adventure in Paris for 5 nights at the Castex. An overall good experience. Highly recommended for a home base to sightsee and enjoy what Paris has to offer, and being away from the hustle of the Champs Elysees or more touristy areas. This felt like a real neighborhood. The room was average...

There is nothing overly fancy or lavish about the Castex. It's just a very clean, attractive, well-run hotel. After a long day of sightseeing, looking at art and walking and eating, I loved getting back there every night. I even hesitated to write this review for fear that it will get too popular, and I won't be able to get...

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
