This is a small hotel - and our room at least was weirdly shaped. It suffers from having only one small elevator, and the "bar" is just about non-existent. The hallways are dark and you have to learn the trick about turning on the hallway lights as you go. Now, having said all of that, the service was great -... More

Very good location downtown Caen; easy walk to nearby resturants, attractions (Chateau-built by William the Congeror and the two very large Abbeys) and the Caen military museum. Parking could be a chore, as the hotel has limited number of spots - check with them as to availability. Rooms are neat, pretty good size, however no a/c (wasn't necessary as bit... More

We always select a hotel with a minimum of 4 Stars while traveling in order to have air conditioning available. Although this hotel was ranked by Trip Advisor as a 4 Star (and I note that it still does), a letter of excellence from Trip Advisor that was prominently displayed at the check-in desk indicated it was only a 3...

We got for a good price compared to other top rated hotels in Caen and decided to take a chance. Very good hotel, big room, good bathroom, pretty good breakfast even if a bit expensive - 15 euros- quite normal these days in France. Coffee/tea maker, fridge and safe in the room. It was a very convenient location in the... More

We received a warm and friendly welcome to the hotel by Julie, who was kind enough to direct us to restaurants and sights in the city. The room was lovely, no faults. Comfortable beds, with all the amenities that you require. No iron in the room, but it was delivered in minutes when I requested it. The room and bathroom... More

The hotel is quite average and overrated. It is good enough to be classified as a three-star hotel, but definitely not four, as is proudly stated on their invoices. Luckily, we stayed for only one night touring around Normandy. The common areas are drab. The room #405 was clean, but smallish and not very comfortable. Some pieces of furniture were... More

I used the Moderne as a base for tours to the landing beaches. The front desk clerk made our tour reservations for us. Also she made a restaurant reservation for us. She could not have been more helpful. Our room was OK. Not great but nothing to complain about. We really enjoyed the breakfast room. The selection was good, the... More

I'd previously been booked into a hotel about 100m away but it was so bad I left and checked into the Best Western. The staff were really helpful and all seemed to speak English. The rooms was good, as was the shower room. Breakfast was OK, maybe a little over priced at 15 euros. If I were to stay in... More

We stayed in the Hotel Moderne for one night in October. Hotel very central. Staff very helpful and friendly, pleasant room and bed very comfortable. Lift very slow so you wouldn't want to be in a rush for your room if the hotel was full. Good Breakfast room with views over the city but a poor choice of food and... More
