Royal Hotel Caen Centre
Ranked #3 of 40 Hotels in Caen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 March 2010

We had a one night stay, en route to the ferry which is about 1/2 hour away. The hotel is in Caen city centre, just off the pedestrianised shopping centre - but accessible by car with on street parking and a car park opposite. The hotel overlooks a garden, which gives it a pleasant outlook for a city centre hotel. The rooms are modern and well appointed - but the wet room shower is just that, I managed to flood both the bathroom and the bedroom when I used it.

We choose this hotel based on the good reviews from this website and were happy we did. The lady (I forgot her name) spoke very good english and was very friendly and helpful. We booked a triple room for myself, the old lady and the boy and were happy with the accommodations we received. I almost booked our stay at the Novotel Caen Cote de Nacre, but changed my mind after reviewing trip advisor. The Novotel is a nice hotel but it's a little bit out of town, while the Kyriad Caen is right downtown next to all the restaurants and shopping. We really enjoyed walking around Caen at night after a day of touring the WW2 beaches. It's about a 20-30 minute drive from the hotel to most of the WW2 sites and the parking lot is right across the street from our hotel. The only complaint I have is that I did not allocate more time to spend in Caen :( , maybe next time.

We stayed here for just one night. The hotel, although a little difficult to find was very comfortable. Our room was a decent size, with a nice bathroom and balcony. The staff were very friendly. Try the Petite Marmite Resturant (turn left out of the hotel) which was lovely although a bit pricey! There is an underground car park opposite the hotel and you can get a discounted ticket at reception (8 Euro). Breakfast was okay too.

The staff at the Kyriad were friendly and helpful, especially Briac and Bridgette.
The service for the rooms was very good. The clenliness was A1.

The disabled room was good, two of the party were pleased with the facilities and access to the room. The room was large and airy and overlooked the park opposite. The amenities were ok we had breakfast daily and there was a good selection of food and drink to cater for all of us.

There is a restaurant next door which was shut for the holidays, however there were enough places for an evening meal within easy reach, although some were difficult for wheelchair access.

The location was brilliant for the city, albeit we were primarily visiting the Normandy Beaches supporting a 90 year old veteran. With 4 generation present the location catered for all.

Best was the location

Least - lack of a bar area - bar is in the reception area with a few seats and does cater for 14 family members to meet

Having spent a full week in the hotel, I have nothing but praise for the accomodation and staff. There were 14 of us altogether, including my Grandparents of 90. From the moment we booked the rooms to our very last day, the staff could not of been more helpful.
We had an interconnecting room with the kids and both rooms were cleaned immaculately everyday and both overlooked the park. The bathrooms were modern and of good size (also spotlessly clean) The air con was a real bonus as it was a very warm week !! We had the breakfast everyday - usual buffet style with plenty of it.
The hotel is right in the centre of Caen (brilliant for shopoholics) and if you are visiting the landing beaches etc. like us (Grandad is a Normandy Veteran) expect at least 20 min drive to the nearest one, likewise for Pegasus Bridge.
All in all a very pleasant stay.

This hotel was located in the center of Caen within walking distance of the cathedral. The rooms were large and very clean. Free internet access was included. The breakfast buffet was 8 euros and it was good. The staff was extremely helpful, recommending various restaurants within walking distance. Parking is 6.50 euros, and it is located across the street in an underground lot. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Caen.
