“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

Excellent small hotel in central location with restaurants and parking . Easily booked by email with quick response. Room small but fine for a one night stay and very clean. Welcoming staff and excellent value.

turned up in Cherbourg after a 4 hour train journey from paris with the bf, with the intention of getting the ferry to ireland. knew nothing of the area and so grabbed a map and started searching for a hotel. this was the first we found, only 40 euro a night (if i remember rightly). staff were friendly. room was small and bathroom not that great, but it done what it was built to do.
tv didn't work, but we fixed that. just sucked that there was only 1 english channel, but we enjoyed our french cartoons. :)
would stay here again.

We were looking for a convenient place to stay in the Cherbourg area to visit the Titanic Exhibition, the Hotel Napoleon is within walking distance of the port and town centre.
We have stayed in many hotels in France but I must say the Hotel Napoleon is a great choice.
The hotel is clean and tidy and the owners are friendly and helpful and although I speak French they speak good English
The rooms have a bath / shower complimentary soap etc and plenty of hot water and TV.
There is plenty of tourist information and near by safe parking, there is also plenty of places within walking distance to get an evening meal.
We found it so charming we stayed 3 times in August /September and will return in 2013.

Room Tip: All the 3 rooms we stayed in are perfect !

This hotel is a charming former maternity hospital centrally located opposite the town hall. The owners took over the hotel in January 2012 and take great pride in the running of the hotel as they renovate. The rooms are small,somewhat dated but clean and functional. There are newspapers,plenty of tourist information and fresh fruit with the optional breakfast.We stayed here as our usual hotel was full and we returned because we found it ideal for our needs. It provides a good base from which to explore Cherbourg and there is a bus stop and parking opposite.

I recently went back to the Napoleon in Cherbourg having first stayed there early this year, shortly after the charming new owners had taken over. It was even better value for money as much work had been done in the interim. It makes such a difference to stay somewhere genuinely friendly and helpful. The breakfast of fruit as well as the usual fare of bread and croissants was for once really good value.

Veru clean, somewhat small rooms but for the price and the location it is excellent value. These are the good and decent quality small hotels that France does well, type of venue worth returning to, much better than the Ibis or Novhotel or the new clean boxes that are continually advertised.

I stayed at the Hotel Napoleon for one night in February 2012. The Napoleon is convenient if arriving or departing by ferry, good parking close by, many restaurants excellent restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is quiet and the rooms are clean. I would stay again, if arriving in France by ferry.
