A large city centered hotel this Best Western is a good option if you are making Caen your stop before Normandy or beyond. With an early departure (pre-9:00) there was free street parking (we arrived later in the day). There is an okay restaurant/bar beneath the hotel and several dining options within a short walk. Room was comfortable and spacious.

We stayed at this hotel while on our 10 day trip to England and France! This hotel was in a great location and in such a pretty little town. We really enjoyed this hotel and what it offered. The room was slightly bigger we felt than some european hotels. This hotel offered a wonderful breakfast and had wifi which was... More

This hotel presents an excellent cost-benefit ratio. A bit outside the traditional city center, but very quite. Rooms are much larger than one expects in France, the bathroom is spacuous and inviting.

Good location. Clean and well maintained hotel. Nothing to dislike. Secure parking available at ab extra cost. Breakfast was very good. Would recommend. Difficult to understand why anyone would complain about it.

I arrived at this hotel expecting a "Patio" and a "Family" room. I got neither.... No patio and a room I could hardly walk around! To top it off no bar fridge. Not impressed. I loved Caen but unfortunately I will not be staying here if I return.

Stayed two nights in an executive room. Very comfortable room with free wife, expresso coffee, fridge etc. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The bistro served wonderful meals at reasonable prices. In fact I had the entrecôte steak on two evenings. My only faults were that the a/c was directed at the bed and not conducive to sleep and the breakfast... More

We stayed here for 3 nights of our 3-week tour of France with our children and their families during our celebration of our 50th Wedding Anniversary. The entire family loved Caen and this hotel. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We all love France, home of my great grandfather!

This hotel is in the large city of Caen. I was attracted by the photos, but upon arrival could only see a big European city locale, traffic all round, and noisy environs. The interior, however, was newer and well maintained. As is frequently still noted in Europe, the hotel staff were distant and gave the minimum of help, expressionlessly. When... More
