We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way to Juno Beach. It was well situated (5 min) from the train station and close to car rentals. Very clean and well cared for rooms. The location was also good for exploring Caen.

I hate to give poor reviews and hopefully this is not too bad. I do find myself agreeing with some of the positives in other reviews on this hotel. It is in a good location for the centre of Caen. It is clean and the staff are very friendly. However it is quite basic. Our room was very small, it... More

Hotel staff were more intent on continuing their conversation upon our arrival rather than tend to 3 soaking wet guests - we arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm and downpour. Breakfast better than many other hotels we have stayed at. Room ok, but wifi signal strength very weak. Good location for train station and not too far from tram... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, as a base for exploring the D-day beaches area. Good basic hotel providing a good nights sleep. We found the staff very helpful and nice, and this hotel is great for having a secure parking area at no extra charge!

We have been located at ground floor, in front of public parking on the road, not the best place. Bathroom not that clean, dust still present in the room. Location quite acceptable even if close to the main train station

Stayed here for one night after we had travelled on the afternoon ferry from Portsmouth, prior to driving down to the south-west of France. The hotel is close to the centre and although we were on the ground floor, it was very quiet and we had a good nights sleep. We chose this hotel because of the availability of a... More

We stayed in this hotel for a week this summer 2013. The hotel is nothing special, just an average place to sleep. The staff however, is great, and must be worth a point of their own. Very helpful and informative. The rooms are nice and clean. The aircon was insufficient in our room, but worked. The free parking is a... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the middle of July. Caen is located more the 20KM from the shore, inland so it is hot. We picked this hotel based on the fact they have A/C. When we arrived they put us in a nice big room. The A/C was weak but worked. Then at night it started dripping water until we... More

My family spent one night at Hotel de France in Caen before heading to Omaha Beach. The location is great since the hotel falls right in-between the train station and downtown. The rooms were relatively large although I did not care for the shower door configuration (if you stay here, you will understand). The hotel was well maintained and right... More

We stayed two nights there and found this hotel convenient, though not superb. Being fairly close both to the train station and even downtown, it is at a good mid-point. Staff very welcoming (English not the best), lobby a little small, there is free parking behind the hotel. Rooms rather small, and bathrooms so tiny that I had to resort... More
