Refined but not stuffy, the Castille Paris has an enviable address on Rue Cambon in the swanky 1st Arrondissement of the City of Light, right next door to Coco Chanel’s original design house. Under the direction of Italian designer Elisabetta Fabri, three private 18th-century residences were seamlessly combined to make one hotel. Gone are the expansive foyers and grand staircases you might expect at other Parisian hotels; instead, you get modern style and rich woodwork, with furniture you can sit on without asking permission.
Bed & Bath
There’s a distinct difference between the two wings, which house the 108 guestrooms. The Opéra Wing features contemporary Parisian design with Baroque elements, such as Renaissance-style portraits in gilded frames. The Rivoli Wing takes inspiration from Coco Chanel (who famously worked just down the block in her heyday), with a palette of black, white and beige. Superior and Deluxe Rooms overlook Rue Cambon or the courtyard and are kitted out with wooden parquet floors and marble bathrooms stocked with Starbeauty products.
With an Italianate fountain as its centerpiece, the sun-filled patio turns into a natural spot for gatherings and a glass of champagne among the well-heeled guests. Elsewhere, there’s a well-stocked fitness center and an Italian restaurant, L’Assaggio. The menu focuses on classics such as ravioli in truffle butter and sea bass with potatoes and olives. If you’re in the mood for small bites, stick to the bar and salon, where you can grab an espresso, tea or old-fashioned cocktail, like a gin fizz.
In the Area
Want to feel like a real Parisian? Catch a performance at the Opéra, just a few blocks from the hotel. Just behind the Opéra, try a Paris must-have, a macaron, at the iconic Dalloyau; it’s been open since 1682 and has some pretty cracking views. But for arguably the best view in the city you should pay a visit to Sacre Coeur in the hilly neighborhood of Montmarte. A good place to start a night out on the town is Les Trois Baudets, a trendy venue that plays host to a number of acts throughout the year.
How to Get There
The service at this hotel was impeccable. There is so much I can say about this quaint well-appointed luxury hotel but the staff makes this hotel even more special than its fabulous location, amazing duplex suite, tasty food and comfortable beds.
I arrived really early from Miami and while waiting for my friends and the room I was made to feel comfortable, given coffee, crepes and a space to relax. When it came time to leave, they ordered my taxi, loaded my bags, gave me coffee to go and walked me to my taxi.
If you are going to Paris to shop, relax and be the ultimate tourist and want to skip the traditional hotel but still want first class service Castille Paris is worth checking out!
The concierge, bell staff, restaurant staff and front desk staff were all amazing. Housekeeping did a great job and the turndown service spectacular!
Hotel Castille has truly become the perfect combination of luxury and comfort. This was my 5th stay at Castille. The location is extremely convenient as it in Paris Center. The service at Castille is absolutely personable. The team is there with genuine warmth and sincerity. My dinner reservations were constantly changing with work being so busy and the concierge completely handled it all for me with a smile. Once I inquired as to where I can purchase flowers for my room - they simply said ‘do not worry about that’ and I returned later to find a lovely bouquet in my room. If you are looking for elegance and comfort, this is it. I will definitely be back! Benjamin and his team are the finest! - kiren Anouk Singh
My husband and I got very disappointed at the first hotel we stayed in Paris so I asked for refund and left. I found Castille Paris online and immediately booked a room. Within one hour we arrived at the hotel and the room was already ready. They quickly helped us with the luggages and I felt so much better.
In the evening I noticed the tub plug had some problem and they sent someone to check immediately after I made a phone call.
Overall we had great experience here and the best of all, they have a hotel cat!!!!!
Wonderful wonderful wonderful! From the check-in to our sad departure everything was amazing! The front desk went above and beyond to ensure we had an exceptional stay (thanks Katia!), the location is bar-none, and the rooms were beautiful!
My husband and I already cannot wait to return to Paris (for our 4th trip) and will most certainly be frequenting this establishment!!!
If you like small rooms, this is the place for you. While the location is excellent (except when Macon is having dinner at the Ritz, the street to the hotel is closed),the room is uncomfortably small. I had to rearrange the furniture to open up my suitcase. There is not enough room to put my case on any type of stand during the visit. Further the room has a strong perfume smell, which is annoying. In addition, the room is just tired. It needs to be repainted.
The positives is that the staff has been friendly and the room is clean.
I had hoped for a better experience.
