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...

We spent one night here on our way from Paris, heading towards Bayeux. This proved to be a great choice; we arrived around 8 pm but exited the wrong exit from the train station and could not find the hotel (it's across the tracks and on the other side of a wide road if you exit on the wrong side...

The hotel was in a wonderful location directly across from the railroad station making it very convenient for the pick up from Peace Museum staff for the WWII tour and for taking the tram for some sightseeing of the town. We were warmly received and helped to our room. The continental breakfast provided more than enough to eat to start... More

Checked in thru the bar. Bartender took up our luggage. The room was small yet clean. The family lives on the 3rd floor. We had a quick glass of wine in the owners bar, but the smokers outside were not kind, smoking directly in the doorway and filling the bar with smoke. Took a very long walk down along the... More

I was in Caen for business and spent three nights at La Consigne. Yes, the room was small, but extremely clean and quiet. No, there isn't an elevator, but the proprietors carried my giant suitcase up and down the stairs for me. And the free Wi-Fi works! The best part is the service. When I had to catch a very... More

Stayed for 1 night in a double room. The hotel is located directly opposite Caen train and bus stations, right above the bar and restaurant, so it is very convenient if you are travelling by public transport. The tram stop is right outside as well. My room was very clean with a dark red colour scheme. Bedding was new. Bathroom... More

We were seeking a hotel for one night which would be convenient for our return to Paris after a few days in Normandy. La Consigne fit that bill. Directly across the street from the train station, the bus station and the tram, and next door to Avis where we needed to return our car, this small hotel was perfect. The... More

As previous reviewers have mentioned, the location (directly across from the train station) makes this an excellent choice if travelling by train. Also, the bus station and tram stop are right nearby. The hotel has a small bar/restaurant which serves excellent meals at reasonable prices. Though the neighbourhood looks a little dirty (as around most trains stations) this hotel is... More
