I stayed at this hotel with my son and my elderly neighbour after visiting the Normandy beaches where my neighbour had landed to lberate france in 1944. We had spent 3 nights in Caen at the premiere clas nord( highly recommended!) and the last night(saturday the 8th june 2013), at the apartcity in Le Havre. On the website it looks lovely, clean rooms very bright and well equipped. In reality it is a dump! filthy rooms, worn out fittings and decoration, smelt of body odour and smoke, and stains on the carpets etc. When booked, it included breakfasts, but as we returned the keys we were asked for 21 euro's for the beakfasts! A total rip off. The disaster does end there, after arriving, we decided to drive into town to get a meal and drink, and were harrassed by a french thug in a car, who pulled up in front of our car, gesturing hand signals, then got out and came to our car and was threatening, pulled open the rear pasenger door and assaulted my son. We quickly drove away and reported the incident. We were all totally shocked by this unprovoked attack and drove back to the hotel. The area outside the hotel is littered with rubbish and drug paraphanelia, drunks and drug addicts and would be gangster types in the streets. delapidated buildings with drug addicts directly opposite the hotel! There was at least 10 piles of dog mess in the street and road, and a frenchman was actually letting his dog do its buisness right outside the hotel entrance.
This place is definately one to avoid at all costs, especially for health and safety reasons. The french that stay here(mostly) obviously have no objection to this filthy place, so one can only assume that they are used to it!.
The whole of Le Havre is a filthy town, nothing on this earth would get me back here again, and to both myself and my war veteran companion, we are of the opinion that why did we bother to liberate these filthy ungrateful people.The pictures on the websites are not what you get, so anyone thinking of booking this, remember...........i have warned you!!!
