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. Breakfast was simple (French) and was catered with care and service.... More

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. My (very late) arrival was no issue, got to my room as... More

This is a terrific hotel. Le Havre not the loveliest of towns at first sight, but the hotel is an unexpected delight. Welcome, room, advice about dinner, breakfast especially, all impeccable. The owners take a real pride in the job, and the result is the best hotel, regardless of class, that we've been to in a long time. Pity we'd... More

The hotel is extremely well situated in the city centre, at 15 minutes walking from the beaches, and 1 minute from the City hall and the restaurants, brasseries and bars which are located in the surrounding streets. Don't expect la grande luxe but nice, very clean and comfortable rooms and a very warm welcome. Breakfast is served from 6.30, so... More
