The hotel owners were very friendly and welcoming and spoke fantastic English. They were very helpful with recommending places to see and eat in the town. The room facilities were great with a kettle to make tea and coffee and the bathroom and shower were excellent too. The bed was a bit hard but had a fantastic night sleep!!

Small and friendly hotel in the centre of the city. We arrived quite late and got very warm and friendly welcome info about everything you can need. I guess the receptionist is the owner of the hotel? Or a super motivated personal... The room was clean, elevator fast, WiFi working. Breakfast was typical French style. Easy and tasty. Very recommended.

We visited Le Havre to see the mid-century modern architecture such as the "volcano" and to take a day trip to see Etretat. Our stay at Hotel Carmin worked perfectly. Thierry at reception was incredibly helpful, providing us the Etretat bus schedule and saving us a trip to the bus station by letting us know that the bus stopped right... More

I booked Hotel Carmin after reading many good reviews on internet and it met my expectations. I arrived at about 11:30 and my room wasn't ready yet (not surprising). While I was killing some time in the lobby, the male staff at the reception (not sure if he's the owner) talked to me a bit and offered me a pass... More

Perfectly situated just round the corner from the impressive Town Hall (Hotel de Ville) it is within walking distance of the Station, the Sea Front, there are Shops and Restaurants all round. The reception was friendly and helpful - we didn't expect the room to be ready, it was only 10am, but we could leave our cases there and go... More

We arrived late in the evening in the middle of a monsoon-like downpour - it was ankle deep in water in the reception and the water had flooded the boiler room, so the electrics had gone and then the hot water... So I am saying four stars as much because we didn't get to experience Hotel Carmin's best as a... More

We ocassionaly had to stay for 1 night in Havre and bumped into this hotel from the first try. So it's pretty well located, not so far from the beach also. Very nice and helpful guys run this place. It's clean, everything looks pretty. Fresh 'n tasty breakfast. I would recomend this place for everyone!

The bedrooms are basic as this is a budget hotel, but it is well located (we went to two great eateries within 300 meters) for the docks, serves a decent breakfast and has some of the most helpful service (in French, English and German) I have come aross in years. Discount vouchers handed out, eateries booked at the drop of... More

This hotel is comfortable, clean & good value for money. A good size room & bathroom, with hot drink facility in the room. The manager/owner was very nice Giving us advise on a restaurant we were going to eating at. Breakfast was nice with plenty of choice. A good central location with free wifi which we would return too.
