“The best part is leaving....ha!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

Price was great but not worth the savings. The room was the kind where you are afraid to touch anything or walk without shoes...and had a residual smoker's smell even though designated non-fumeur. I wish I had read Trip Advisor's low "50% recommended" rating before booking. It is fair. BE WARNED: if you arrive after 8 pm there is no reception and you must call elsewhere to get a code to open a safe with room keys....and there is no telephone provided for you!! So, if you are travelling from abroad without a phone, you will have a BIG problem!! Luckily a kind stranger offered me his. Also, the internet is unreliable. I am at McDo's next door to write this. I love a bargain hotel, but this was definitely not worth saving 12-15€ over other hotels. Maybe suitable for a twenty-something accustomed to hostels. This was nothing like the Appart'city in Strasbourg I once stayed in, which was really clean.

Room Tip: A room elsewhere is advisable :-)

Located on the ring road provides easy access to the city center and other towns of Normandy. Free parking.

Poor apartment - not a superior one. Very small bedroom (like cell) and kitchen, equipped with the basics. Dirty sheets and towels - I had to complain to the front office to change them. Very dirty carpet. Not comfortable mattresses.

We booked this property nice and early along with another room for friends. We wanted to be with my Uncle who is a D-day veteran. We go there to meet up with him every year, every year being special as you never know when it will be the last. 6 weeks after we booked, the hotel emailed saying they had cancelled our booking which was for 4 nights. Our friends still have their room booked. Despite several telephone conversations and emails, no real explanation has been given. Although we did then see the hotel advertised for 6 times the value of what we had paid through booking early. We think this was purely a money grabbing exercise by this company with no care for their customers. We now cannot find anywhere suitable around Caen to stay, if anyone can help we would be very grateful.

Easy to find near university campus with adequate (just) free parking.

Reception good and rooms clean with reasonable kitchen and bathroom. (Shower very good). Downside was bed which was poor in comfort terms (fold-out settee). Breakfast available but not taken.

Within walking distance of major 'centre commercial'.

Very reasonable rates. Good for one or two nights. where you are out most of the day.

Room Tip: All much the same

The hotel is a 20 minutes tram ride (about every 15-20 minutes) away from the city centre. The tram is usually very crowded due to the nearby university campus. My appartment was very clean and spacious and equipped with a kitchenette. The breakfast was fine. It is a good place for a longer stay, especially if you have business to do at the university or the GANIL research centre.

Reception working only a few hours a day, when we got there there was no one, they left us keys in some sort of safe. In case of any problems there was no one to talk to, we could have ended up without a place to stay for the night. The only phone number was for booking department that wasn't even in the same city and people there couldn't give us any pointers as to how to get to the place.Tiny cramped rooms in apartment rented for 4 people. After pulling out an extremely uncomfortable sofa there was no place to move around. Sofa so worn out it was uneven which made it basically unsuitable for sleeping and even offering this option as a sleeping possibility. Bedroom so tiny you had to walk sideways around the bed to get to the bathroom...
In an apartment that's on sale for 4 people you simply cannot have bathroom available only when entering the bedroom and worn out, uneven sofa! Bathroom is another gem with heater set on a wall right in front of the toilet, in a tiny, tiny cramped corner. On top of all that they ask customers to take out their own trash! Seriously, if we knew we wouldn't have stayed there.

The apartment idea is excellent. |The room was very comfortable. The breakfast price is too high. The location was kind of "out-of-the-way."
