Rooms were clean, the reception staff was very friendly and gave us some very good tips on where to dine and what to see in Caen. The garage is a bit tricky to park but they park the car for you if needed. Good location. Would stay there again.

This is an excellent location if you want to walk around Caen, they have some parking spots available on site if you have a rental. The staff was very helpful when I asked for restaurant recommendations, even providing a map. The breakfast in the morning had a large variety of options for food and beverages. The room was very comfortable... More

I stayed at this hotel in 2008 for 4 nights for work, then for 1 night this past September with my family. The buffet breakfast is excellent, the front desk staff are wonderful, and I even managed to enjoy a drink at the bar that same night in September. It's an easy walk from the hotel to the large Sunday... More

Everything was OK but I can't notice something special. Good place to stay in Caen. The location of the hotel is excellent, the staff is English-speaking (it was very important for our family), rooms are quite comfortable. If you stay there you'll be in 2 minutes from the Cathedral and the Castle

The hotel room was nicely decorated with plenty of room for a large bed and a small bed accommodations. Great location and within walking distance to restaurants and historical sites. The internet worked great (my husband has to work on vacation). The morning meal offered by the hotel for additional cost was worth it for us. My daughter and I... More

Great room in the heart of Caen. Excellent, friendly, helpful staff. Easy walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, the Chateau, churches, the boat basin, abbeys and more. Active nightlife, but not too loud in the room. Very clean room, excellent bath, and communal spaces. Could not have been more pleased. Very reasonable prices, as well.

A great location (with parking if you are brave enough to follow the signs) and with great staff. We were received very well and had great conversations at the bar with very welcome Single Malts in generous measures to satisfy this Scot! Highly recommended.

An excellent hotel. Very centrally place with good walking access to all amenities. Reception was excellent. Very friendly, efficient and helpful. The rooms were good - everything that you needed. Despite being in the centre of town it was very quiet. Breakfast was excellent. Car parking is available - once you find it !

Staff here are so helpful just ask. location is handy for driving around Normandy not difficult to to ring road and reasonably priced car park (republique) just around the corner. Tip parking at Republique between 20.00 and 10.00 ish is about half the price of the hotels car park.
