Great hotel, great locationPosted Jun 11, 2014
Fine place, well-run, modern and great location in the heart of Caen. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast offers many options and starts early. Rooms are small but clean with very good bathroom. Will stay here again in a New York minute!

Christmas in CaenPosted Dec 30, 2013
A beautiful hotel in a great location. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. A ten minute walk to the tram. Staff and owners did everything they could to accommodate us - immediately fixed an error with our reservation allowing us to have adjoining rooms with our teenagers. Beds were a bit hard, but we would definitely stay there again.

lovely hotelPosted Aug 3, 2013
Easy to find, parking facilities, english speaking staff. Air conditioning was great. Room was lovely, except no view from the window. Although I requested a balcony we didn't get one. We couldn't find fault with anything else though and were very happy with the hotel.

Well worth a visitPosted Aug 26, 2012
Having driven from Calais to Caen, finding the hotel, parking and checking in was relatively simple and quick. A basement car park outside the hotel provides secure, safe and affordable parking (9 euro overnight special deal available through the hotel service desk). The hotel is centrally located, the rooms clean and the en-suite bathroom large.

Pleasant stayPosted Aug 2, 2012
Pros: Staff and location
Location: Centrally located with easy access to parking.
This hotel is in a great location within walking distance to a number of restaurants. Staff were exceptional in answering questions and assisting us. The only negative was the carpets. They looked worn and none too clean.

Over 60 and traveling....Posted May 8, 2012
Pros: The service - exceptional!
Location: Within walking distance to everything.
Best deal in Caen! The gentleman that runs the hotel not only speaks English, but goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Need a local restaurant, ask! Need some sights to see for free, ask! Need directons around town, tram information, bus information, just ask. Would stay there again in a heart beat. Breakfast buffet available and a small service bar is in the lobby. This is a great hotel for the older traveling couple.

Explore Normandy in Day Trips from this Caen HotelPosted Apr 12, 2012
Pros: Extra friendly staff, cozy bar in the lobby, and a convenient location.
Cons: Weak WiFi on the 4th floor, lack of bar soap and shampoo, breakfast not included.
Excellent choice in a central location for visiting the cities, towns, coastline, and historic sites in Normandy, France. Since I have been taking French lessons (still very beginner) I was able to try out some basic french conversation with the manager. He was gracious about talking to me in French (I think I understood most of what he said) and not switching to English. This made the stay more authentic. The rooms are basic but comfortable and very clean and my wife and I had a good rest for the 3 night stay. The shower is of the type that causes the bathroom floor to get a bit wet as often happens with hotels in European cities. Parking in the pay lot across the street (8/day) was not a problem and we also could walk to the shops, the castle, boulangeries/pattiseries (also a pleasure!) and great restaurants in minutes.

Good value, excellent servicePosted Sep 23, 2010
The room was small by US standards, but quite satisfactory for the traveler. The breakfast buffet (incuded in price) was much better than the standard ones in 2-3 star hotels in the US. Good value for the $$. We were particularly impressed with the service at the front desk. VERY helpful to the traveler. I must say, it ranks near or at the top! Overall, great value for the $$ !

Great French ValuePosted Apr 23, 2010
Perfect quaint French hotel! The clerk spoke good English and was very accomodating. The room had a tiny balcony, but perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and watching the street action below. There was a restaurant with sidewalk cafe below our hotel also full of action. Plenty of places to eat within walking. Great bathroom-very Americanized. Clerk helped up get cab as well as instruct us to bus line to catch bus to go to the Memorial. Would certainly recommend this hotel!
