My husband and I stayed at the Castex Hotel as part of our 3 week European vacation. It was our first time in Paris, so we took extra care in choosing exactly where we would stay. This hotel is located in the desirable 4e, right by the Bastille. After we were in Paris, we realized that the Metro will take you almost anywhere you need to go. We worried about not selecting a hotel right next to the major tourist sites in the 1e. We were so glad we didn't! Not only did we get a much better hotel rate, but we stayed among the Parisians!

We stayed 3 nights and loved it. It was roughly 100 euros a night, which is a serious bargain in Paris, and we found that Venere.com had the best rates. We can't say enough about the staff. They were wonderful and extremely friendly. They all spoke English very well and were eager to help us with whatever we needed.

The hotel is also air conditioned which is somewhat rare from what we learned there in Paris. We were there during the "heatwave" in late July, and it was our saving grace coming back to that chilly room each night. And the beds, so comfy you didn't want to get out of them in the morning! However, that delicious breakfast and excellent coffee were waiting for us downstairs, as well as Paris!

The location couldn't be better; 2 blocks from the metro and around the corner from anything you could need- grocery, bakeries, cafes, clothing, laundromat, post office. The area was very "untouristy" and it felt like we were walking amongst the locals. We kept telling ourselves that we scored the whole time we were there. We'll definitely stay there again when we go back. It's a hidden little gem among a mass of choices.

Nice location, friendly staff, good access to the Metro but tended not to use too often anyway as the walk into the City was lovely anyway. Thought the hotel in general was good value, though rooms are small (but who cares when your only there for a few days), only problem I encountered was some traffic noise in room but nothing too unpleasant.

This hotel is located in a great part of the city right next to the Bastille. It is also a short walk to the trendy area around the Hotel de Ville. Convient, safe, great cafes around the place, relaxing and charming area.

The front desk attendents were very nice, accomidating and helpful. They also spoke very good english. The housekeeping staff did a good job with the rooms, although they like to wake you up if you sleep in so they can get into your rooms to clean. Oh yes, and free wireless internet, which is great!!

The room was clean, airy, a bit small though. It's not a Ritz-Carlton, but it is a great steal for the price, service, and location! Overall, a charming stay!
