I can only echo what previous people have said about this hotel-we met 3 different staff members , all of whom were most helpful-breakfast was very tasty and surprisingly filling. Would recommend to anyone visiting Caen for a few days

My son and I spent one night here on our return from Normandy to Paris. The hotel is very conveniently situated if you need the train station or to rent a car ( all within a minute's walk), but is about 10 minutes by tram from the city centre.( The tram stop is very close). The hotel is situated above... More

Nice basic hotel right across from the train station. Room was compact but quiet and comfortable. The staff were great, we were a little late off the last ferry and they had happily stayed open to let us in. We enjoyed breakfast, plenty to eat and tasty.

I loved this hotel. Very quaint, good location (right across from train station). Several restaurants within walking distance and the restaurant attached is great as well. Breakfast was very good and the people were excellent. I can't say enough about my stay at this hotel. I will definitely try and stay here again if I make it back to Normandy.... More

Clean rooms and super friendly staff. Bar and restaurant on the main floor. Tasty and reasonable price. Within walking distance of the main tourist area. Parking is on the street. Not always easy to find. Rooms are average. Basic. No phone or haidryer. Would stay here again

We spent one night here following a ferry crossing from Poole to Cherbourg and then the train to Caen enroute to Rouen and Giverney. The location was excellent, directly across the road from the railway station and the staff were all very helpful. The bedroom, although quite small, was very clean and quiet and breakfast was very good. It was... More

We did not spend the night here, but had an excellent breakfast. The service was outstanding and very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The coffee outstanding and the omelettes we had, were very tasty. I will go back for the croissants!

Worried a bit about location as usually stay in Bayeux but was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. With my daughter and son-in-law. So clean and everything we could need from a basic hotel. Walking one way in the evening district seemed a bit seedy but just on other side of the station was a modern shopping area and numerous... More

WELL DONE BOY'S, and thanks for the bottle of wine... More

Perfect location across the road from the train station worked great for D-Day beaches tour. Nice basic breakfast. English spoken at reception. My train from Paris was severely delayed, so I emailed the reception and they waited for me after 10 pm to check-in. Room just like you see in the pictures, clean, recently refurbished excellent condition. Definitely good value... More
