Clean, comfortable, close to everything. helpful and friendly staff. Food not brilliant but tasty enough, Caen is walkable or a cheap taxi ride (or even a bus!) if you want different food. Can't believe Ian W was staying at the same hotel. We also stayed in September 2014 and were delighted. Have booked again for this year. Yes, there may... More

We booked the Hotel Crocus Caen Parc Expo through Booking.com which upon arrival was found to be completely unsatisfactory. Booking.com must not bother to check the standard of the hotels they advertise. Filthy conditions including moths and spiders in the room, stains on the bathroom door/walls and rude hotel staff lead us to refuse the hotel room which resulted in... More

Upon arrival at the hotel (13:30), everything seemed fine, check in was swift, we payed extra for two breakfasts to be served the following morning. We were then given our room key. We proceeded to the first floor, stepped out of the lift and had to weave our way through the dirty linen strewn across the corridor. The cleaners were... More

We have been really pleased with Hotel Crocus. The room was clean, there is free wifi and the service in the reception was nice. We can not complain. They even prepared a picnic for us for a daytrip although it is not in their service. There is a restaurant attached which we can not suggest. It is cheap but not... More

This hotel is rated 2* - it barely warrants 1 star. Rooms are adequate - just. But basic and in poor repair. The bathroom is a 'plastic' pod - though it works fairly well. Apart from the shower - which was fine when it worked but the pressure and temperature fluctuated a lot, and the shower head constantly wandered. I'm... More

The hotel whilst being very basic with small rooms and an even smaller en suite was in fact an ideal location for our visit. There is nothing around the hotel by the way of restaurants or bars and the town centre is a good half an hours walk away, believe me I know having walked in and out 6 times... More

Staff very welcoming and helpful. Good location - within walking distance of central Caen. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Also had an excellent evening meal at a very reasonable price. Room was very clean and quiet. Bad Wi-Fi reception.

Staff very helpful and attentive, breakfast was plentiful and fresh, staff made sure we were looked after when a USA coach full of hungry teenagers cleared the buffet breakfast in minutes, good location and free parking, room basic but clean, good value for money.

The location is very convenient for exploring the Caen area, within walking distance of the WWII Museum and exploring the landing beaches. It's cheap in both senses of the word; Tired, small bedrooms, no sound-proofing, off-hand staff, awful food (breakfast's not too bad but there is always a queue and the staff seem to be irritated by having to replenish...
