Hotel is in center of town in one old building. We have room in other entrance with window to street - sometimes noisy. Breakfast is enough. Parking is terrible - small space and less parking place. Room was clean and good size

After my husband wrote his review on this website, the manager of this hotel contacted him to yell and make threats! In addition, since the reservation was used for business travel the manager sent a letter to complain about him to his company for his review! The original complaint was made because the hotel acted in bad faith by changing... More

I stayed here in April while touring the D Day Landing Beaches and Museums. The hotel was of very good standard throughout. My room, although quite small was more than adequate for one. The bathroom was well appointed with an excellent shower. The choice at breakfast was very good compared to other French hotels. I did not dine in the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel as we were doing a bike trip across Normandy. Did not choose the hotel ourselves but it was recommended by our tour guide. It looked good in the pictures, but when we arrived there, the halls smelled of stale floral "cover up." The rooms felt dirty. Bathroom with shower only, and very... More

Great location for the Ducal castle and downtown restaurants. Rooms typical European small. Beds OK. Window needed to be opened for cooling in early May. 2 or 3 flights of stair climbing required to get to the new rooms. Staff more than helpful with luggage and everything. Parking tight and limited. Bar has a great selection. Extra half star for... More

Great welcome when we arrived, the lady spoke English , which was a great help. Give us choice of 2 prices for 2 different rooms. Offered us parking in the garage for 15.00 euro, or park outside for free. Parking is limited. The rooms are spotless, with lots of space, we were on the top floor. Did not use the... More

We have just returned from a memorable New Year's Eve (Fete de Saint Sylvestre) at this hotel. The meal was amazing 7 courses with champagne to start. The room was very comfortable and clean and the shower room was lovely. We used the spa on New Years morning, a perfect antidote to the heavy heads! It is a shame that... More

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.
