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.

Upon arriving at Hotel Carmin, we immediately felt welcome, Jean-Pierre and Thierry gaves us tips on where to go and eat, and it was like you arrived at a friend's house for holiday :-) The room we had looked like it was recently renovated (bathroom) and was very comfortable.

We stayed here over Easter for three nights. The hotel is in the center of the town and near the beach and parking is easy. From the minute we arrived until the time we left we were looked after in a way rarely found in a hotel. Nothing was to much trouble - out hosts did everything possible to ensure... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Hotel Carmin. The location is very central, within easy walking distance to the beach, the mall, brasseries, boulangeries, boutiques, and outstanding Perret architectural highlights like St. Joseph's. The room was very clean and filled with modern amenities. The lobby is stylish and offers a plethora of reading material about the region. The breakfast is... More

Many others have praised this little hotel and I have little to add, only to echo. It is a welcoming, comfortable, charming little hotel in a very convenient location in Le Havre. It is owner-run and these folks really pay attention to detail. I especially enjoyed the genuine interest the owners showed in helping us plan our stay in Le... More

We arrived in Le Havre at about 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon. We had flown into Paris that morning and we were at the end of a long day. The two, I assume, owners were just a delight. They got us into our rooms quickly and efficiently. We were told to park in the street in front of the hotel... More

I was staying in Le Havre for a conference and really enjoyed those 3 nights at Hotel Carmin. After some delays leaving Paris, the owners were massively helpful and made sure that, despite the fact reception is not 24 hours, I could get to my room without trouble.
