We just had to get out of Hotel Castex and to our good fortune, Novotel Les Halles had a room come available during Paris Fashion Week. We high tailed it over there early in the morning even though our room wasn't ready, the lovely Justine at reception checked us in, took care of our luggage and sent us back out into the Paris morning.
The location is really good despite the footpath directly outside the hotel being dug up (along with almost every part of Paris ATM!) but the metro station is right outside the door along with good restaurants and shopping. In saying that, Taxis have to drop you off or collect you from the side street but it is only a couple of minutes walk from the door of the hotel.
We had one of the refurbished exec rooms and they are very nice, beds are soooo luxurious and I was very excited to see a real hairdryer in the bathroom. My one criticism of the room would be that the lighting is very dim with no central ceiling lights and I struggled at night finding items in my suitcase due to the really poor lighting.
Our room wasn't serviced at all one day of our stay, but we informed reception in the evening as we were heading out to dinner and it was taken care of by the time we returned.
The staff were fantastic, very welcoming and helpful and we really enjoyed the spaciousness this hotel offered. Will definitely return here should Paris feature in our plans in the future.
