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.

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
