A very modern Novotel ideal for the car port.Although no car park the parking they use is safe and secure a couple of minutes walk away. Beds are excellent and very well sound proof rooms add up to a good nights sleep. Breakfast is very good and staff first class. All in all a very good Novotel

Easy to sleep 4 with a queen bed and funky sleeper couches that are singles so the kids get their own bed. Clean , quiet, central. It's a new hotel so everything was in good shape.

First thing is it's a Novotel and you know what your going to get! Clean good sized room with wifi, shower/bath, tea/coffee making facilities and room service if you want it. Restaurant is great for breakfast (all you can eat) and the dinner in the evening is good value. Directly opposite the hotel (5 minute walk) is a shopping centre... More

On my second visit to this hotel, it remains impersonal and minimalist but it is the best choice in Le Havre - at a price. All food offerings except breakfast were skimpy and ridiculously expensive. Breakfast, on the other hand was excellent and - this was a surprising first - the breakfast staff were friendly, charming and returned a smile.... More

Had a room on the sixth floor looking towards the station (just a very short walk away) NO noise from station and was very quiet throughout the stay. Lovely room, on a corner so had a little more space than others. Very clean and was a pleasure to stay in. There was a notice saying that some refurbishment was going... More

Stayed for two days and booked three rooms on a business trip. The suites rooms are spacious and functional with a view on the docks of the city. An excellent base for the short trip business in the city and it is 100 metres away from the rail station.

Stayed here on business as per normal and you get what you pay for! Good/clean/effective room with wifi/tea&coffee. Resturant serves a menu of the day, or the room service is competitive. You can also walk across th bridge to the new shopping mall, that has restaurants open till late. Novotel, a good brand.
