Stayed here for the 2nd time, last time being in 2011, and the hotel had changed names in the meantime. Staff are super friendly and helpful. We needed some extra help finding a doctor, which was difficult during a national holiday but the guy at reception made enough phone calls to get us seen within no time at all and... More

We stayed here for one week in October while visiting our daughter who is at the University. Caen is a great location for exploring the region. We chose the Royal based on reviews here and its proximity to our daughter's home. We were not disappointed! As Americans who travel domestically but not so much internationally, we like our larger spaces,... More

Really nice Hotel, centrally located, clean and friendly. What let the place down was the fact that on arrival we were asked if we would like breakfast, we were mistaken that this was included, said 'yes' and were not aware until paying when we were leaving that it was 11 euros per person. We were there with our 11year old... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights during a week in northern France. Parking is provided in an underground public car park directly opposite the hotel and although the description says €9 per day, if you don't move your car you are only charged the nine euro for your entire stay which is great value. The receptionist, Briac was... More

We stayed a night at the Royal Hotel Caen Centre while visiting some of the Normandy D-Day sites. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, with large rooms and very nicely appointed bathrooms. Service was amazing - the woman attending the front desk was cheerful and friendly, spoke to us in French, and made some great dinner recommendations. And the... More

Had stayed here before when this was known as the Kyriad. For a 2 star felt this was exceptional. Spacious room with view of the park in front with tea and coffee making stuff. Near to town centre yet quiet. Staff helpful and friendly. No frills but all you need.

Stayed here 1 night. Rooms were quite small, but perfectly clean. Check-in is after 17h00 which I found really late, but they do receive your luggage. It's true that this was mentioned on their page, but I didn't pay attention to it when booking. We could hear the bathroom noise of the neighbors. Staff is efficient. It's right in the... More

We have only one towel. We reported this on way out to eat. Not fixed. When we got back at about 11 we noticed that the... More

This hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Caen, a wonderful town with so much history. Our host, Briac, could not have been more helpful, interesting, and accomodating. He suggested restaurants and sights but also showed us amazing historical photos which filled in the gaps of our knowledge of Caen history. The room was very comfortable and clean and... More
