Location couldn't be better, right next to William the Conquoror's castle and very close to good shops, bars and restaurants. Off street parking wasn't a problem for us. Hotel friendly, basic and clean. Free wifi. All ok but the tiniest bathroom I've even seen!

Spent a few days in Caen with our 8 year old grandson for the 75th anniversary of D Day. This hotel was ideal as our room was in effect two connecting rooms. The welcome was excellent and throughout they were very helpful. The hotel is quite basic and that suited us fine as we wanted a base from which we... More

Stopped in here on our way from Paris to mont st Michael and had a very comfortable nights sleep. Whilst there is no lift, the stairs are wide enough and well lit, so there is no problems carrying your bags up, and the staff were happy to help as well. Wifi was handy and quick enough. The room was very... More

Great place to stay. Simple, but very friendly staff. Good services, wifi. Central in the cute little town, close to nice bars and restaurants. Didn't have any trouble with sounds from the street. No elevator, but aparently the staff is willing to carry your suite cases up. Breakfast is ok, not spectacular. Good value for it's price!

Very nice hotel conveniently situated in Caen . The only drawback is that it does not have an elevator. Your luggage is taken upstairs and downstairs for you so actually it is not that bad. They make you feel welcome. Parking is available in the nearby streets and municipal parking lots. We stayed there for three nights and never had... More

We took the overnight Brittany Ferry from Portsmouth to Caen Port, staying 1 night in Caen. I booked this hotel based off the ratings here on TripAdvisor and was really happy that I booked - so I am recommending it to others. We stayed just one night, since we were on our way to Paris but wanted to see the... More

We booked the suite (excellent value in a 2 star hotel). Had been recently renovated but bed sloped down as a result of the age of the hotel (floors not level). Extra pillows available but had to be asked for. Bathroom modern but awkward to use because of lack of space to put toiletries. Hand basin had no area around... More

My wife, ten-year old son and I stayed here for one night en route from Calais to Brittany. We found the hotel with ease using 'sat nav' and parked on the street just around the corner - the receptionist told us that this would be free of charge because we were in our own UK-registered car and the Caen authorities...

went with friends to visit Memorial and take a d-day tour. Location was PERFECT, hotel was very quiet. Hotel staff were very friendly and recommended a few restaurants for us. Would definitely stay there again!
