“Lovely little hotel, friendly staff. Good location for exploring Caen.”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights on a week long tour of Normandy and Brittany. The main reason for stopping here was to visit the D-Day beaches and Bayeux tapestry and I'm so glad we did. Nice comfortable bed, clean room and nice bathroom. During the day, if you are using the car, you can park outside for up to 2 hours on a meter, or overnight the hotel let you park in a shares carpark round the back if there's room. The reception area is welcoming and bright and staff were friendly. The only down side is the noise coming from the bar across the street. We made the mistake of leaving the window open on the first night and the noise was unbearable. The second night we shut the windows and the shutters and didn't hear a thing... Ok as long as its not too hot! Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again :)

Whilst we were travelling to Brittany our motorcycle broke down on the motorway near Caen and our Recovery breakdown booked us into this hotel , it was very well presented and a very friendly atmosphere .The owners couldn't do enough for us ,they were very helpful and nothing was too much for them ...such lovely people in a family run hotel ,would definately stay there again .

Modern hotel situated just north of the canal, close to railway station and 12 minutes walk to the castle (or by tram in neighbouring street). Large gated parking to the rear. Some closed garages for €10 per day (reserve in advance if possible). Rather small but spotless bedroom. Surprisingly roomy bathroom with twin washbasin & separate WC. Excellent buffet breakfast (cold) with fresh orange juice and carafe coffee. Would stay again.

Sufficient hotel, pretty quaint and on the older side. The staff was nice and spoke English. If you rent a car you can put it in their garage there for 10 Euro a day. They offer breakfast for an additional fee, we didn't try it as there is a grocery store right behind the hotel and other places to eat at. The room was a bit on the small side but did the job, it was clean, offered free wi fi and the hotel itself was within walking distance to various historical spots in Caen. Beautiful city worth seeing, and I would stay here again.

Ideally situated in a quiet location, within walking distance of everything. Room comfortable (toilet very small- but not a major problem, bathroom and room both spacious). Staff friendly and helpful (despite our lack of French). Train for a day trip to Bayeux was very easy and well worth it! Plenty to see in Caen too. Normandy beaches tour organised through the Museum of Peace was informative and interesting. Thoroughly recommend this hotel as a good base for a few days to discover this region.

Yuck! I found this place thinking I had found a great deal in a quiet location. It resembled a motel 6 and worse I had a bad nights sleep-which is difficult for someone who normally sleeps like a rock! The rooms was very hot so I had to open the window then I could hear all the loud talking going on at the bar across the street and later as the night progressed, there was yelling going on-like a couple was fighting. To top it off I could see the neon sign light in my room. When I mentioned that I had a bad nights rest the woman at the front desk in the a.m. said "no complaining to me" hurry to get your taxi. I was very tempted to ask for some money back. The bed was bad, I did not want to touch the comforter. There are so many other opinions in Caen that are better, if you want a good nights sleep do your research and look for another place!!!
