Had a fine stay for two nights in the triple room with loft bedroom. The room was clean but very tight on space to what I was expecting from photos. Shower could have had much more water pressure. The big plus was the warm, friendly front staff. Fairly decent location to places to see. Fair value for what you pay....

A perfect place for a weekend away, a short walk from Bastille metro which in turn was a short metro ride from garde du Nord station. Free wi-fi and lovely and welcoming staff partnered with a quaint and comfy room were all we needed to compliment our short trip. Would highly recommend :)

We stayed at the Hotel Castex for three nights in November. It is located near the Place de Bastille in the Marais. Lots of places to eat, sightsee and shop nearby. Small but comfortable room, bottle of wine in the room upon arrival. Very helpful concierge and an adequate breakfast in the basement dining room. Very nice stay.

We have stayed here twice for the convenience and the welcoming staff. Both times in December. The hotel is located near the Bastille Metro stop. The rooms are clean,comfortable and everything works. The staff is always there to help.

Very friendly owner to welcome you. Good quality room and good range at breakfast. Great location, walking distance to everywhere in the town centre, but not so central as to be noisy at night. Fully recommended.

We stayed at the Hotel Castex for 6 nights and had a very quiet and pleasant stay. The hotel is located in a very nice area near the Place des Vosges (which has got to be the loveliest spot in Paris) and the Marais. Fabulous restaurants are nearby and so is the Seine. It is just the perfect place for...

Looked lovely on the internet but the best room is the breakfast room - great breakfast offered. My room quite small although I had a big bed with a good mattress. No wifi in room (so sporadic that non-existent). Front desk chap was great. Room - needs a review and a deep-clean or re-paint. Bathroom - filter scary, tiles amiss.

Very friendly and helpful staff who speak a number of languages. Great location close to metro. Breakfast was very nice and not a bad price given the city centre location. Luggage room available for the period between checkout and leaving Paris which was so helpful for last minute sightseeing. We had two rooms (triple and twin). It's a shame they...

Perfect for exploring Paris especially if you are in want to discover a lot of french brands. Close to Seine, Le Marais, Picasso Museum and art galleries, lovely boutiques around and niche perfumery, honey shops, cheese shops, everything you want to eat, the Bastille metro station is very very close. A bottle of wine is expecting you in the room,...

When Hotel Speria did not have a room for us, even though we had booked in June, they make a reservation for us at Hotel Castex. Very glad they did, as we enjoyed our stay. Eskender, at reception, was very kind and helpful. The bed was comfortable, the bed linens and towels good, and the location great. We would stay...

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.
