This was our first Hotel F1 stay, and it was a surprisingly good room! We booked directly through their website, and the price was about 2/3 of what was advertised in the lobby. The showers and toilets were clean, as was the room. We stayed at 5 different Hotel F1 locations on our trip, and this was the best!

I suppose you get what you pay for. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the Caen Memorial Museum, which is a must see.... The room was clean, functional with a temperamental entry system with a 6 digit passcode. Sink in the room with a TV but Showers and WC, a short walk down the corridor. Small towels provide... More

I stayed at the hotel for a week using it as a base to visit D-Day sites and some other parts in Normandy. The hotel has an excellent location next to the ring road around Caen and has a small supermarket (U) and two restaurants close-by. Plenty of facilities for everyone and being familiar with the F1 brand I knew... More

I am always satisfied with F1 hotels. No frills. You know what to expect. The North Caen one is on a good location, bus service to town, supermarket next door, etc. Yet the girl in the afternoon/evening shift was rude the two nights we were there so it's not that she had a bad hair day on day one. Awful... More

Formula 1 hotels are very low budget and this one is no exception. The room was bare bones, the wifi was iffy and the breakfast was very minimal. The location is near the war memorial so that is convenient for sure. Bathrooms and showers are shared as is normal in Formula 1. I smacked my head hard on the bunkbed... More

This is an excellent motel/hotel to stay in. The rooms are cheap and are excellently cleaned. It is one of the most convienent places i have stayed in. There is a microwave by the front desk which can be used by everyone to have something to eat if you buy something from the supermarket, which is only a 30 second... More
