“a good location, but only average hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

A budget chain hotel with fairly small rooms. Breakfast OK, and staff helpful, but the hotel smelt a bit. The parking opposite in the underground car park was good and cheap. Several lights in our room did not work.

Fantastic stay! Nice service and the hotel is well located. The room was clean and not noisy- and we're sensitive to noise. The room we had was 104 and it was just fine for two people. Breakfast was typical albeit a little pricey considering it was just basic- but overall fine. Receptionists were friendly and spoke English very well. Just a note- don't bother trying to check in early (check in is 3pm) as it just wasn't happening for us. 
In terms of location- just fine. Caen is small so we were walking distance to everything. From the train station its about 8 minute by bus (bus 1 to St Pierre) or 8 minutes by tram (st Pierre stop). We never walked it and with two large suitcases I wouldn't bother. If we were to come back to Caen we would have no problem staying here again.

The position of the hotel is very good. Our room was a bit small but clean and we slept very well Bathroom was really cool. Wifi worked fine and parking available at 8€/day fare is really handy.

I would stay here again.

The rooms were well decorated and had even a fridge. The beds were extra comfortable. I slept so soundly! The view from the room was on the market place. The bathroom was ultra modern with all the necessary utilities.
The personnel were very nice and eager to help you whenever we had a question. They didn't have a personal garage, but right in front of us was an indoor garage, which cost us less than 2 Euros for the night. We were about ten minutes away from the Chateau de William le Conquérant, quite an impressive castle and shops were just 2 minutes away. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Caen!

I stayed here for 1 night with my husband and 4 year old. The room itself was clean and tidy but nothing special. The staff were really lovely though and made it a pleasant stay. Location is good, right in the centre, easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Stayed here for 4 nights and really couldn't fault the Kyriad Caen Centre. The chap on the door on our arrival was most friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and decently appointed, nice big bathroom, and though I wouldn’t say it had much soul or call it particularly modern, it was functional, clean and comfortable, which is basically all you need (or all I need, anyway!) Parking is €8 a day, for which you can come and go as you please, at the underground car park in the square opposite. You just hand the ticket to the person on the front desk and they’ll swap it for a hotel issued one. I did notice that the car park was closed late at night though, as in ‘shutters down’, so if you’re planning on arriving back late, or indeed leaving late for a ferry or flight or whatever, bear that in mind.

Location wise it’s very central, within short walking distance to the castle and cathedral, and the to the bars and cafes on the quayside, as well as being right round the corner from the main shopping thoroughfares. Despite some complaints on here about the youths in the park, I saw nothing like that during my 4 night stay here.

Free WiFi and a nice little café right next door too. If you’re driving there without a sat-nav, it’s dead easy – follow signs for Centre Ville and then signs for Parking Circuit and P Republique, as it’s right opposite this well sign-posted car park.

Overall, would happily stay here again.

Stayed here for three nights in July with my wife, Daughter and some friends. We checked-in on Bastille day, which meant a little bit of extra noise from the street (hotel is very near town after all), but overall I couldn't fault the entire experience. Staff are excellent, with very good English. Parking, Breakfast - all very good and good value. If you're in the area for a visit around Normandy, or CAEN itself, I highly recommend the Kyriad Caen Centre.

Room Tip: We stayed on level 3 - rooms are all very nice.
