The Astrid is located near the tram line and is right behind a bus stop for the #2 which takes you directly to the Caen Memorial. The room was large enough for two, and the lady who greeted us and checked us out in the morning was quite friendly. We felt quite welcome and enjoyed our stay for one night.

This is definitely a budget hotel, and you get what you pay for. The rooms can do with updating and don’t look too closely at the corners of the bathroom, blackened with mould. However, it’s hard to really complain at 54 euros per night for a double (we were only there for 1 night as a stopover, which was enough).... More

Usual smallish room and bath but our room was clean and bed linens seemed newer. We were there in spring so can't comment on mosquito problem. Small annoyance for us was being just far enough from the train station that we didn't feel like walking. The local tram runs from the station almost to the front door. We never completely... More

Good value price/quality Rooms and bathrooms are basic, but clean and quite spacious. Main "pros" of the hotel are excellent and very helpful staff and location - just halfway from old bassin Saint-Pierre to Castle (two minutes on foot both). Hotel is bike-friendly, bicycles spent the night in a garage. There are some restaurants nearby but i recommend to eat... More

Twitchy the Wonder Bunny, a pink and blue globe trotting bunny spent three nights at the Hotel Astrid. The rooms are very dated and could use a make over. The rooms were quiet with not a lot of street noise. There was a problem with mosquitoes. If the windows were left open, you were bitten. If the windows were closed,... More

Friendly helpful staff and a great location. The rooms are very dated and due for a facelift. Tight fit for a family of 2 adults and 2 children but it did the job.

We are a family of 5, 3 small children. The room was not big enough for us. On the positive it is very cheap and central. Negatively, it was very dusty so a nightmare for asthma, it took twenty minutes running the tap for hot water and I'm sure I was being bitten by something.

We came across this hotel which doesnt look anything special from the outside but once you get inside, you immediately feel at home and cosy. the female owner speaks good... More

My husband and I opted to stay in Caen after some days in Paris... We found Hotel Astrid on Trip Advisory and chose to stay there because of the positive reviews.... Everything was good.... Madam Lau who checked in us was warm, cheerful and so lovely... We had the room on the first floor which was easy for my husband... More
