Stayed for 1 night when on a business trip in the area. Reception was efficient and helpful. The room was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Fridge, safe, tea & coffee making facilities and large flat screen TV. Overlooked a road but no audible traffic noise. Bed was comfortable and slept well. Breakfast consisted of a good selection of hot &... More

Stayed here for one night after problems with our original hotel. The young lady on reception was exceptionally sympathetic and could see how stressed we were. She was so helpful and gave us a great room and threw in breakfast which was very good. She also gave us great tips of where to eat and drink. Cheap car park near... More

We paid 63 euros for a room. It was really good value for a modern hotel with a free gym. The service was excellent, the room was large and spotless with a big comfortable double bed and a bed settee for my (not so lucky) friend. Not sure why they didn't provide a room with two single beds though. I... More

Price was quite competitive. Location may depend. Room was very clean and view from the room was fairly good. Breakfast was good but average for other Novotel hotels. My child enjoyed the stay. There was a free car park just behind the hotel.

Big hotel just outside city centre, train station opposite; tram and bus links to everywhere in Le Havre. Room nice and clean, with double bed and sofa bed. Underground car park in the next door building, marked by sign just outside main door - visible when approaching. One pays for the car park ticket at the reception (5 euro/24 hours).... More

This is a good, average hotel - probably as good as it gets in Le Havre. However, the staff is glum, for which, no doubt, we can blame the management. They are not welcoming, but I do not blame them, as I suspect they are poorly paid and overworked. Perhaps a sign of penny-pinching is that my room card-key had... More

Centrally located, car park can be a little difficult, with all public transports around, very nice triangular architecture which makes it difficult for the bedrooms in the corners, very aware that Le Havre is an industrial city with a huge oil and gas refinery that can stink depending on wind conditions although apparently they have some kind of filters in...
