We were very impressed with this hotel. We were given a room on the second floor when we first arrived but I find the stairs very difficult. I asked if it was possible to move to a room on the first floor and they went out of their way to arrange this. We were asked to pack our luggage and... More

We found staff at La consigne welcoming and helpful. For a mid range price we felt there were good facilities. Walls are not thick but noise was not a problem for us. We were very happy during our short stay, would go back and would recommend to others. Caen was a stop over for us but the staff were very... More

What started as a routine query at the desk about the time of buses to the ferry led to the discovery that there was no ferry on the morning we hoped to travel. Staff members were exceptionally patient and helpful with making alternate arrangements. They saved us from a lot of fruitless waiting and a major disruption of our next... More

We need a hotel for a couple of days in Caen for taking a couple of tours, one from Caen and the other one from Bayeux so we chose this hotel because it was across the street from the train station. It's clean, the owner is very nice and helped us get our things to and from the room (no... More

It was great being able to walk out of the train station in a strange town and see your hotel straight in front of you. The hotel is actually above a cafe of the same name, so go in the cafe and the two chaps will greet you there and show you the room upstairs. They also provided a fulsome... More

All in all our stay turned out fine, but it could have been a disaster. First, there was no mention in the information on the website that the rooms are not air-conditioned. Second, the communication with the owners was difficult and very slow. When I finally found out there was no air-conditioning, it was too late to do anything other... More

La Consigne is a smal, budgetl hotel across the street from the Caen railroad station. My room was immaculately clean and very quiet. The proprietor, Mr. Regis couldn't have been nicer. He also runs the bar and restaurant on the ground floor. There is no elevator so he carried my larger suitcase up the stairs for me. I had a... More

The hotel was really nice. As others mentioned it is super easy to get to from the train station, literally right across the street. Also there are several car rental services located only a couple doors down. The owners are very nice. They speak great English and were also nice enough to help me with the bit of French I... More

Conveniently located and directly opposite Caen train station, it was really comforting especially after a 6 hour journey from the South of France. The tram station was also near the hotel which made it really convenient going into the centre. The hotel is small but comfy and clean. Only issue is that the wifi signal was weak on the 2nd...

My daughter and I stayed at la consigne on 7th October. The hotel is well located opposite the railway station and by the bus and tram routes. It was easy to get to other parts of Caen and Ouisterham. The ensuite room was basic but clean and comfortable. The shower was very good.We paid extra for breakfast which consisted of... More
