I stayed in this hotel in Trouville in early July for 3 nights. It was prior to school holidays starting and therefore the hotel and the town was still quite quiet. Not tons of tourists about.
I arrived at the train station, coming from Paris. To find the hotel, it is really important to come out of the train station and bear to your right and cross the small bridge.Turn left and stroll along the road to the right of the canal, heading towards the large yellow casino that is ahead. The street leading to the hotel runs off to the right as you near the casino. The reason why I am stating these directions is because I asked a policeman directions as I exited the station, and he erroneously directed me to Deauville which is the town to the left of the station. Apparently that town too has a Rue Victor Hugo!!!!
There was a lady from England working at the front desk during my stay, and I found her very friendly and helpful.
My room faced a street (not Victor Hugo)... and I found it quite noisy with traffic at times of the day. In fact, the hotel itself was quite noisy ( I guess due to its age)... I could hear toilets flush, showers run, floors above creak, sounds from rooms nearby. I had to wear earplugs in order to sleep... something I never have usually to do. Also, the light from the streetlight outside my window shone through the curtains, making my room quite bright at night. I also had to wear a nightshade.... also a rare occurrence. The mattress was comfortable, the pillows so-so.
What I liked about the hotel was its location... a quick walk to the street lined with cafes, close to the boardwalk and beach, 10 min. walk to station, etc.
As well, I enjoyed the breakfast... the pain au chocolat. mmmmm... was warm and delicious.
Would I stay here again? Yes, it's all part of the experience and the positives outweighed the negatives.
