We only stayed for one night before hiring a car and moving to Bayeux as our base for the landing beaches. We had come from Aix-en-Provence by train and felt that Caen was far enough for one day. We chose this hotel because it is directly across from the railway station, tram stop and beside the car hire companies. The... More

We are here only for one night and are very happy with the place. It is right across the street from the railway station. The food and friendly service are perfect when you are tired from traveling. We would recommend it to fellow traveler's.

Wonderful place to stay :) Right across from the train station, so it was conveniently located (it was also close to car rental places, restaurants, and the castle) . As soon as we entered the building a gentleman helped us out with our itinerary (renting a car, where to go visit, how long it would take to drive etc.). He... More

This charming hotel is the perfect spot for arriving, departing and visiting Caen and the area. Across from train, tram, bus station (and nearby several rental car companies), you can get anywhere in Caen and Normandy from here. The hotel and restaurant were very clean and well-maintained. But the best part of the stay was the staff. They were very... More

Right opposite the train station, outstanding service and very friendly staff. We really appreciated all their help as soon as we checked in. Very reasonable rates, and very clean hotel room. The food was good. They even cooked us dinner when they were about to close the restaurant. They went above and beyond reasonable expectations.Special thanks to Julian, Regis and... More

This hotel is located in the convenient if slightly down at heel station area. Although the area looks unprepossessing there is a tram stop directly opposite which will take you to the city centre ( or about 10-15 mins walk)and the subway under the station leads you to the Rives L'Orne shopping centre where there are chain restaurants and a...

My husband and I stayed at La Consigne during a brief trip to Caen. As we are roller coaster tourists, our main goal was to get to Festyland amusement park, but we scheduled a few days in town so we could also see the castle and the D-Day museum. We don't speak any French and this was our first time... More

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
