This place feels like France, with flower boxes on the windows. It's close to everything in Caen. The rooms are small but large enough for two. Bathroom small but, again, large enough for two. Some antiques, which gave the room character. While the location is on a side street it was a bit loud with noise from passersby on a... More

If you're looking for the authentic French experience, this cute little will give it to you. The rooms are 'cozy', and if fact some are just small, but there is enough room and everything you need. Some bathrooms have very small showers but most are just fine. It is within walking distance to lots of bakeries and restaurants, and the... More

Booked this hotel through Booking.Com. We wanted something central and inexpensive. Were informed the room would be available at 4 pm but had to wait outside the building until 5 pm. Once booked in the room found it extremely comfortable, ground floor (good for us oldies as there was no lift and we had two large suitcases). Very central, clean,... More

The Hotel is in an old building right in the centre of Caen. There is overnight parking nearby but beware of Friday night when this is restricted due to the market. Reasonable value for a cenrally located hotel. The hotel has charm and the rooms are comfortable. The management is helpful.

I stayed here three nights with my daughter. Our room was compact, but simple and clean. The staff were terrific. The owner, Olivier, was especially friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful, and inexpensive. Location is outstanding, just a short walk to the city center with its many shops and restaurants. The hotel doesn't have its... More

I found this little hotel online. I wanted something close to the Church of St Nicholas that I wanted to photograph. We received a warm and friendly reception by the new owner who had just taken over from the previous owner. The rooms (there were two of us staying in separate rooms) were spotlessly clean, cheerful, thoughtfully decorated and furnished,... More

This hotel is located in a quiet side street in the old part of the city. It is a couple of minutes’ walk from Caen city centre, with all its shops, markets, ancient buildings, tourist attractions and public transport links. The room rates are inexpensive and the new manager (Olivier Gaument) is very patient, helpful and attentive. The only downside... More

Spending a few days in Caen, this hotel looked an obvious choice for sightseeing. Indeed, the proprietor was welcoming and breakfast was the acceptable French fare (bread rolls, croissants with preserves, coffee, chocolate, etc). However, the room was cold overnight with no apparent means of raising the heat from the radiator in the room. On the plus side, the hotel... More

I'm rating the hotel "average" because of the furnishings in the room but it's actually a rather great bargain. Hotel Saint-Etienne and I got off to a horrible start though. According to the website, check-in was at 16:00. When I arrived at the hotel, a note said it was at 17:00. Ok. So I found street parking nearby and wandered... More
