    Pros: Hotel Castex is a small hidden gem in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Very affordable. It's clean, has a friendly staff, super convinient for transportation, dinning and enjoy walking arround the neighborhod. It is also close to all the main cultural attraccions in the city some within walking distance. Breakfast was also really good all the bread and pastries are baked there. Their coffe is one of the best I've had. Cons: Check in is in the afternoon at 2:00pm and there's not flexibility before that time. However they have a luggage room where you can leave yor luggage an come back at check in time.

    Great Location but Shabby

    Location is very good but the place is very rundown. Nothing seems to have changed since I stayed there almost 5 years ago. There was absolutely no space in the room, you could barely walk around the bed it was so small and cramped.

    This is an ideally located hotel on a quiet street between two major avenues. It's an easy walk to metro line one which gets you to most of the major sites in Paris and makes it easy to connect with other lines. On Sunday there is a nearby open market that is very busy but not on most tourists radar. The hotel was quiet and the staff were consistently professional and welcoming. I had a lot of questions and they were invariably helpful. I was in Paris for a research trip and this location is ideally located between both of the bibliotheque nationale de France at Richelieu and Francois Mitterrand.

    The location was perfect, close to restaurants and subway. It was safe to walk around. The hotel was clean and served it's purpose. It's not a hotel where you would just sit and enjoy the room, it was more like a place to leave your stuff and rest your head at night. Perfect for those who are on the go. The hotel staff were helpful.

    Location was perfect, really close to Bastille Metro and within walking distance of a number of sites. Staff were friendly and spoke perfect English, which is always useful! Rooms are small but clean and the bed was huge. Cleaned every day, and has everything you need for a reasonable price.

    This is the perfect boutique hotel for the seasoned traveler.However, if you require all the amenities a large chain hotel this is not for you. If you want a more authentic Paris stay the choose Hotel Castex. The building is old but the room was very dated as needed - new bathroom fixtures and loved the usb ports! I loved the exposed beams and the feel of an older building - my window opened and heating was by radiator. The bed linens were plush enough that I slept beautifully. It is tucked away on a quiet street a few blocks from the Bastille. There are several cafes and a Franprix right around the corner. As a US traveler I arrived early and the staff worked to get me in my room early. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My room was just perfect for a single person and being on the top floor gave me a nice view and was very quiet. I did not eat breakfast but it looked very substantial for a continental spread and reasonable at 13 euros. I would definitely stay here again.
