Paris is a city that is near to my heart and when I think of an iconic arrondissement to call home, it’s always the 1st. Situated on the Right Bank of the Seine, this luxurious neighborhood beckons icons like the Madeleine Church, Tuileries Gardens, and the Louvre. Around the corner, on Rue Cambon, awaits the beautiful Castille Paris — a boutique and upscale hotel.
It was safe to say it felt like it was our own apartment in the heart of Paris. The minute we walked into the hotel, we were greeted with a friendly welcome and a surprise visit from the hotel cat. The entrance hotel was grand, yet approachable — something I love at a hotel.
Castille Paris had the loveliest of spaces to cozy up in. Each morning we woke up and took the elevator downstairs right into the restaurant for breakfast. Fresh pastries, eggs, and more were on offer as part of the booking, making it convenient to have breakfast just downstairs.
The inner courtyard was a scenic corner to retreat during the day for a spritz and an appetizer. I often went down there just to hang out by the picturesque fountain.
The rooms at Castille are easily the star of the show. Often I would have to say a dinner or perhaps a sight is a highlight from a trip, but to be completely honest, the room at the Castille was it. We checked into a two-floor suite that had a stunning view over Rue Cambon with Parisian rooftops in the distance. It truly felt like our own apartment. With a well-decorated sitting area downstairs and a half-bath, we spent early evenings and the mornings enjoying a coffee in the room. Up the stairs awaited a full suite, with a large bed and bathroom. A well-equipped bathroom with a large tub and two-sink counter made it comfortable for getting ready with two people. The spacious suite made it a joy to return to after a long day out in the city.
The Castille Paris offers a retreat in an iconic location. It’s truly the hotel for those looking for a Parisian apartment with the amenities of a five star hotel. With rooms as expansive as the views, it is the place to call home while exploring Paris, France.
