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

La consigne was a very good value and a pleasant hotel. Located on the door of the train station, it was very neat and tidy, and quiet for sleeping. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and patiently answered all of my questions. There is a restaurant that I ate at everyday because the hosts were so laid back and... More

Two senior couples stayed at the La consign 9/10/2014. Had come from Paris by train to pick up a car. Could not have been happier. Neat, clean, with the most helpful and friendly staff! Across from the train station, next to the car rental office. The room was small but immaculate. close to down town. Great place!

This is the most basic, bare bones hotel I have ever stayed at, but I would recommend it to anyone traveling in the area. The owner and his assistant were incredibly helpful and friendly. We spoke limited French, and they were able to help us with all of our needs. The hotel is located right across from the train station.... More

Stayed one night only. The hotel is very simple but was nice and clean. A little noisy by the train station but overall a very good value for the price. The staff was very quick to assist with questions and directions to local sights.
