Close to Centre and the bus drop from the ferry landing. The owner is also the chef and a very friendly chap as well as his German Shepard Tango. The bathroom was a little small but that is typical for Europe. I found my room to be clean and there was plenty of hot water for your shower. Eduoard at... More

Room was a basic double room, just for one night, clean and quiet. The breakfast food was good, however I found the coffee from the machine tasteless. The hotel is in an ideal position, a short walk to the centre and not far from the ferry terminal. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was basic but clean.

The Hotel de France was a good choice for our time in Caen and for taking a day tour of the Normandy D-Day beaches from Bayeux. Our room, while not particularly modern, was more than adequate for our stay and was very clean. Anthony, who worked nights while we were there, had great English and was very helpful to us.... More

My wife and had a two night stop over here at Caen. The hotel is well situated, 5 min from the station and car rentals; only a short pleasant walk into the centre. The double room was basic; clean, quiet and comfortable. Friendly staff. Good breakfast.

Caen does not have a whole lot if you are choosing to stay in north of France I recommend Bayeux. But for the cost if you want to stay in Caen and visit Bayeux I recommend this hotel. They do not speak a lot of English but they try and understand well if you are willing to explain. All our... More

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
