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

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

Hotel La Consigne - Caen My wife and I and my Brother stayed at La Consigne in April of 2014. This hotel is in a great location across from the train station and town rail/bus stop. We were greeted by Regis who is friendly and energetic. We are not good at speaking French and he was trying his best to... More

I stayed here as I was traveling through Caen to see the beaches of Normandy. While the room was very small, it was clean, conveniently located, had Wifi, and the staff was friendly and helpful. It is right across the street from the train station and the access for the local tram, which can easily get you to the inner... More

For train travelers, this little hotel is a convenient location across from the train station. The owner/manager were nice people and very hospitable. Excellent service. Clean and fresh rooms. Everything nicely maintained. Breakfast was simple and nourishing. The room was SMALL. The bathroom even smaller. We were traveling as a couple and it was almost laughable to navigate around the...
