Stayed for 1night before heading to Cherbourg for ferry the next day. Location is very central, room was clean. Very nice breakfast. Great shower. I got this hotel at a very good price which made it even better. I would stay here again.

I think I would recommend this hotel more for its location than for the hotel itself. It is situated just a couple of minutes from William the Conqueror's castle (le Chateau Ducal); just as close also is the Tourist Office, which itself is just a few metres distance from the tram/bus office (with the odd name of Twisto). In fact... More

We booked this hotel as our 'headquarters' for a 3 day tour along the WW2 museums and D-Day landing beaches of World War II. It is a simple 2/3 star hotel located in the city centre of Caen, close to the Chateau Ducal. The rooms, beds and bathrooms were OK. We did not like the breakfast the first morning so... More

The location of this hotel is very central. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Rooms are simple and comfortable. Street parking is easy enough, and there is no charge for parking overnight between 6.30pm and 9.30am. During the day, parking meters are cheap, and the hotel offers a special deal for parking at the nearby Castle. There are... More

We were pleased with the Hotel des Quatrans. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet (apart from a dog barking in the room next door one evening – it stopped before it was too late into the evening. The hotel reminds guests about keeping noise levels down at night). A good breakfast was provided and the staff members were... More

Excellent place to stay in the middle of town. It's super clean, quaint and for 9 euros each offers a nice breakfast. Only down side is street parking fills up after six pm but it is free. (Before 6 pm, you need a parking ticket.) it's close other D Day memorial museum.

My traveling companion was wheelchair-bound, with the ability to walk with a cane for 5 minutes. The hotel gave us a first floor room, which was sufficient for our purposes. The hotel's elevator was a small 1 person lift, could never have accomodated a wheelchair. The staff was friendly and breakfast tasty. Hotel is perfectly located to experience Caen's historic...

This hotel is in a great spot. Very close to the castle and good bars and restaurants. Its very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night before we made our onward journey but it was comfortable and just what we needed.

Very well placed to the main attractions which all have a Norman flavour. The castle is virtually across the road and it is worth 2 or 3 hours to look around. Much of Caen is spread out so you need to use either the trams or taxis, again easily accessible from this hotel. There is a very convenient car park... More

My husband and I stayed here in late June as a home base location for our Normandy adventures. There was nothing special about the hotel, but it was clean and had friendly staff. The location was great and right next to the chateau ducal and many of the city's best restaurants. Everything is very walk able and the tram is... More
