Best Western Hotel Litteraire Gustave Flaubert
Ranked #7 of 52 Hotels in Rouen
Reviewed 1 April 2007

We had a very difficult time finding the hotel - note that the sign is unlit, and the glass entryway (on the right as you pass it) is nondescript. I had read about the elevator to the car park - that was interesting. You don't want a large vehicle if you intend to park here! The hotel, part of the Best Western chain, was comfortable enough, save for the pillows, which were the thinnest and most uncomfortable we've suffered in a hotel for some time. We had a triple, and it was spacious and comfortable enough. Once you find the hotel, though, the location is very convenient to stroll through city centre Rouen, which has an interesting collection of shops, churches, and museums. The St. Jeanne de Arc church is a stone's throw away; the 15th century windows have been incorporated to a VERY modern design. We didn't eat in the hotel, but there are lots of places nearby, with a broad selection of menus. We'd like to visit Rouen again, and we'd be willing to stay here again - but we'd bring our own pillows!

Just great, no complaints. If this place had a restaurant I would give it 9.5/10, this should not matter as the hotel is surrounded by eating houses but stay away on Valentines day as they are all full!

Wonderful historic town (Although it was the Brits again who did the damage by burning poor Joan) great buildings, just superb.

Friendly staff, clean everywhere.

We have stayed in hotel twice now and would easily rate it as the best place to stay in the centre of Rouen.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are amazing. There is parking just outside the hotel and an underground car park which is accessed by a car lift.
The rooms are very clean and have ensuite facilities. There is a bar in the hotel lobby with comfy sofas and chairs - ideal for an apperitif or a night cap.
The location is amazing - right by the church of Joan of Arc, which must be one of the most hauntingly reverential post war churches in Europe. The hotel is ideally placed to see the historical sights in Rouen, to 'shop til you drop' and for the fabulous variety of restaurants that this city offers.
