Recently stayed here as part of organized tour of Rouen and other places in Normandy and arrived as part of group of about 30 people. Was allocated Room 308 , and had to queue with others to wait for small lift to 3rd floor. Room was quiet, and first impression was that it was clean and comfortable, with clean bathroom with many extras. It was supplied with soap dispenser near sink, and similar near the shower/ bath. It was a mixer shower with very powerful shower head .Bathroom also had hairdryer, tissues, bath and hand towels. Towels were not thick and fluffy, but very adequate.
Room had kettle and small supply of coffee and tea bags, though some people might prefer to take along own supply of stronger tea .There is a well stocked supermarket about two minutes walk away.
Bed was very comfortable, and there were good reading lights just above the bed.
Downside was that walls were decorated with muddy brown paper that made room seem dark and dismal during the evening. Not a good colour choice.
Breakfast was self service with wide choice available- cereals, fresh fruit salad, bread, croissants, jams, honey, cheeses, ham . There were scrambled eggs and sausages though did not enjoy these.
One evening looked at bar prices- small glass of wine was 6 euros, so went round corner to local bar and bought one for 3 euros, but expect this is normal for hotel bar prices.
If you don't want to keep using the lift, there is a winding staircase to use.
Overall, I had a good experience of this hotel.
