“Clean and Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

My husband and I stayed here in late June as a home base location for our Normandy adventures. There was nothing special about the hotel, but it was clean and had friendly staff. The location was great and right next to the chateau ducal and many of the city's best restaurants. Everything is very walk able and the tram is easily navigated. It is a good centralized location.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room that faces the street instead of the back alley. It gets a little loud.

My spouse and me stayed there from May 21st to May 23rd 2013 and had a room on the 3rd floor.

The price was fair for that room which was good enough.

The hotel's location is in the center of the city of Caen, and is very convenient.

The ratio of price vs quality was very fair as we paid 95 Euro per night for a room for two with bathroom en suit.

Room Tip: There was no swimming pool or fitness center in this hotel but I could not change the status for a n...

First the positives : the location is great, close to the castle & the centre of the city; the staff are friendly & helpful; the rooms are clean; the shower was OK, as was the bed. The negatives : the hotel is devoid of character - the rooms are basic to the extreme with bare walls & little furniture. As another reviewer has commented, the walls are very thin, & the noises you can hear from your neighbours can be a bit disconcerting. Little touches are missing; for example, no tissues, & not even a toilet brush. We left after three nights thinking that the hotel has a bit going for it, but it needs to lose its meanness.

Agree with other reviews. Respectable lodging in tower block area, good location.
Inexpensive plastic glasses in room, no waste basket in bedroom, no shower door or armature for mounting nozzle, dark halls, elevators stop at half floors, staff polite but distant, breakfast merely adequate, general mood of indifference/alienation. Avoid adjacent restaurant. Attention: work in progress. Carpets and floors now being installed, strong chemical odor in rooms.

The hotel is currently in the throes of renovation, which really didn't affect us, as we were in a room that had been "done". Our room was not large and very minimalistic in amenities and decor, however it was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful, especially getting our baggage to our third floor room - the only lift is tiny and it is a tight squeeze. Breakfast is also very ordinary, OK if you are happy with the most basic provisions. For some bizarre reason the breakfast table settings are laid out on a tray - feels a bit like eating in a cafeteria. Overall the hotel is devoid of any atmosphere or style, perhaps that will come when the renovations are complete. The big plus with this hotel is the location.

We stayed here with friends and booked last minute via booking.com. The hotel is deceptively large with many rooms. It is well located in the city centre, with street parking nearby that was free at weekends. The hotel itself is very clean, with comfortable bedding and good amenities.

We were a group of 3 Rotary clubs - Bruay-la-Buissiere,Dendermonde and Romford, approx. 50 of us staying for 3 nights. Dinner was served in the restaurant nextdoor to the hotel which was no big deal and the room was a perfect size for us all.The food was delicious and the service excellent.Receptionists spoke English and were helpful.Only problem we had was when we wanted to leave, as we had to wait for the car park to open at 9am - but apparently it should have been open.
Room small but adequate as was the bathroom with shower but all nicely fitted and clean.
