Hotel de la Cathedrale
Ranked #19 of 52 Hotels in Rouen
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Very central location. Places hotel in medieval tangle of streets, can be difficult to find so investigate 1-way streets before arriving by car. Entrance and lobby are cool. Giant doors are very cool, has a pretty central courtyard. Our large room for 4 had 2 windows that opened to a pedestrian-only street. Nice bathroom, double sinks, beds are basic and adequate. Location so convenient to cathedrals makes it easy to overlook slight shabbiness.

This hotel is so difficult to find and the info . is not helpful. Staff are not at all welcoming. The room was very basic !!!!. Breakfast would be great if you like fruit !!!!!! But you need to prepare it yourself. I now know what to do with quilted bedcovers I no longer use ---- use them to cover the tables. This is not a 3 star hotel . Se were in a room facing the alley between the cathedral and the hotel and it was so very noisy from 6am onwards . I will never book this hotel again.

My teen daughter and I stayed in this charming hotel for one night in June. The location was perfect as the hotel was situated in a pedestrian ally on the side of the beautiful cathedral. It was difficult to find, although not as difficult as finding parking. I made several loops around looking for parking and ended up walking about 1/2 mile to the hotel. However, we traveled light and it was well worth it. The room was clean and had individual decor and overlooked the peaceful courtyard. Breakfast was ample and kept me full through to lunch. We felt like a part of history staying in one of the half-timbered buildings we fell in love with.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the courtyard

Great difficulty finding the hotel on Sunday evening, reception rang at 8pm to see if we were coming, told her we were going in circles trying to find the place but no directions or help offered. Eventually arrived 8.30, no-one on reception and no bell, so husband banged desk for attention, whereupon receptionist appeared and scolded him for banging desk, said there was no food/restaurant in the hotel except breakfast and that the hotel shuts at 8pm on Sunday evenings so handed our room keys and promptly locked front door and disappeared! With friends so had two rooms,both very dated and tired but large only one room had tea/coffee making facilities.
On checking out next morning I pointed out that map on web-site was very misleading and suggested hotel much easier to find than reality,also mentioned that I'd never stayed in a city centre hotel before where no-one available after 8pm to answer queries or help in any way. I was asked why I hadn't raised these points earlier and replied there was no-one there to raise them with, whereupon receptionist went hysterical and told me to "get out" (plus a load of French that was too fast for me to understand)
Not sure they,ve heard the phrase "the customer is always right!

Booked through this website, and a little unsure due to the reviews. However....its a real gem of typical French accommodation, not pretentious, not the chain like Accor (bit like the McDonalds experience). It is however clean, welcoming, extremely good value, and would have no hesitation recommending it.

You can even get WIFI in the room free of charge....hence writing this!

So the room is small...but right in the centre of town next to the Cathedral and the historic timbered streets....and the bed is comfortable.

Our host also spoke good english which helps

Downside?....getting here and navigating the streets...get your sat nav updated to the latest version, all the one way system has recently changed. You will need public parking, but its cheap and close

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing into the courtyard

Even with a GPS and map of the area, we drove around for quite awhile before locating the hotel. The hotel room was very large, bathroom was average size with the toilet in a separate room of its own. Location is great-very easy walk to cathedrals and old town. Breakfast was also very nice with a good variety of items offered.

Great little hotel right in the middle of Rouen's main tourist attractions. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Excellent breakfast and good value, Be aware that if driving, you need to unload about 50 metres away from the hotel and park in public parking about 150-200 metres away - no big deal. Overall a good experience.
