Let's start with location. This place can not get any closer to the train station which may or may not be good depending on your view. It is literally across the street from the train station making it easy to get to the rouen metro and connect to all train stations. we were using it as a layover from a late train arrival coming from CDG airport. there are plenty of shops/restaurants/banks nearby.
This is a very very basic hotel. The room consists of a queen size bed, one desk, a tiny closet and a tiny LCD screen tv 13-14" if that size. We did not use the TV so can not comment on it. The bathroom is very tiny as well, an extremely tiny shower , sink, and separate toilet. Look, this is as basic as it gets otherwise you're talking about hostels. If you're used to hostels this is luxury if you are used to hotels this is as basic as it gets. There are 5-6 floors on the hotel, we had a higher floor 5th floor so noise issue was not a big deal but i did need to wear ear plugs as the walls were thin and being close to the train station. look, you get what you pay for- to find a room on shoulder season for 62 euros/night with this close proximity is a bargain. there are other hotels nearby hotel anderson as well as a best western - they charge higher rates - we initially were booked with hotel anderson but they did not accept guests after 9pm which did not work given our late train arrival.
on a bright note, the internet is free wifi - very fast connection - surprising given this type of hotel. i probably would say it was as fast as my home connection in the states. if you're looking for a no frills, just a step above a hostel type of hotel with an en-suite bathroom, this is the place for you. if you need something more than this, look elsewhere or you may be greatly disappointed an appalled. we stayed one night and it suited my purposes, if i was planning to stay longer or needed it longer, than i would have chosen elsewhere. they have a breakfast upstairs for about 7.5 euros./person we did not use it.
