We paid 63 euros for a room. It was really good value for a modern hotel with a free gym. The service was excellent, the room was large and spotless with a big comfortable double bed and a bed settee for my (not so lucky) friend. Not sure why they didn't provide a room with two single beds though. I did put it in the 'request' box when i booked online with Expedia. Best check that when you book. Great bathroom/shower. BBC World News, CNN and a hundred French speaking channels. If you want a cheap breakfast of coffee and croissants nip across the main road, over the pedestrian bridge to the docks shopping centre (a 5 min walk). le pomme de pain do a good breakfast deal and the coffee is nice. The train station is just behind the hotel and if you're relying on the ferry, there is a shuttle bus that takes you to the station for 1.6 euro (it's not far but too far to walk with luggage). Saves a taxi fare (a taxi is 7 euros with luggage and about 5 without).

Price was quite competitive. Location may depend. Room was very clean and view from the room was fairly good. Breakfast was good but average for other Novotel hotels. My child enjoyed the stay. There was a free car park just behind the hotel.

Big hotel just outside city centre, train station opposite; tram and bus links to everywhere in Le Havre. Room nice and clean, with double bed and sofa bed. Underground car park in the next door building, marked by sign just outside main door - visible when approaching. One pays for the car park ticket at the reception (5 euro/24 hours). Breakfast up to the standard. Everything you would expect from Novotel.

This is a good, average hotel - probably as good as it gets in Le Havre. However, the staff is glum, for which, no doubt, we can blame the management. They are not welcoming, but I do not blame them, as I suspect they are poorly paid and overworked. Perhaps a sign of penny-pinching is that my room card-key had to be recoded 4 times during my stay of one week, a sure sign of over-used, worn-out equipment.

Centrally located, car park can be a little difficult, with all public transports around, very nice triangular architecture which makes it difficult for the bedrooms in the corners, very aware that Le Havre is an industrial city with a huge oil and gas refinery that can stink depending on wind conditions although apparently they have some kind of filters in the hotel AC, very helpful people at the reception, nice breakfast, we were 2 adults + 1 kid in a suite (only 1 per floor at the angle of the triangle) with bathrobes and slippers provided, near vertical shower, separate WC, free wifi connection, good value for money, average Novotel within this category though, nothing special apart from the nice architecture

Room Tip: Any room will do as building is located between 2 major streets (quai Colbert and rue Lafayette) but...
