This was the second time I have stayed here. While my room this time was your typical European room (ie. On the smaller size), my stay was very pleasant. Good location in the city center near the chateaux. On my previous visit, I ate at the hotel restaurant and it is outstanding. This time I walked to one of many... More

I enjoyed my stay at this Best Western Hotel in Caen. The staff were friendly. The restaurant was good and the location was great. It is located next to the castle (I could see it from my window) and is a short walk to Galleries Lafayette and Monoprix and many other great places. I would stay here again.

Visited Caen as a stop off on a long drive from Mid Pyranees back to Calais. According to Trip Advisor there were no rooms available but we managed to book via telephone to The Best Western Central Reservations. Arrived at about 8pm and managed to get last available parking space on hotel car park. Car park is very small. Reception... More

Drove out to Caen with our 2 teenage sons. The hotel was 30 minutes from the port at the most and situated right next to Caen Castle and the central shopping areas. I would say that the car parking facilities are very limited, we managed to get the last space having arrived around 9.45pm. There is plenty of parking available... More

The hotel staff were most helpful and I would especially like to commend Claire. She went out of her way to help make the visit a pleasant experience. The hotel was clean & comfortable. Regretfully, the restaurant was closed during the time of my visit. I was looking forward to dining in the restaurant because of the excellent reviews from... More

We stayed here as a base to visit sites in Normandy. Our room was large and clean; We had difficulty regulating the heat and air conditioning. The bathroom was modern and attractive. Biggest complaint we had was the hairdryer was a relic-I rely on a decent blow dryer-and my hair looked terrible and not dry for the entire stay. Also,... More

This hotel has average rooms with the most lumpy mattresses I have encountered. We did not eat at the restaurant because it was overpriced. No one else did either except for one couple we saw in the restaurant on ONE occasion. The hotel is stingy on towels. You have to practically beg if you want extra towels to wash your... More
