Once again this hotel delivers!! Great service and as with most/all Novotel brand, clean and fresh. Restaurant opens at 7 for dinner and 06-30 for breakfast and both are good value for money. Underground parking just around the corner and only 5.5 Euros per night.

Stayed for 3 nights whilst working in the area. Hotel is very nicely appointed with an unusual triangular atrium. room was very nice - comfy bed and good bath/shower. Food in the restaurant what not to my taste but well presented and priced. Some of the staff (minority) could be a little 'curt' but this may be my poor French... More

The hotel staff are very polite. Hotel is very clean and order. They also allow me to extend the check out time. Breadfast is simple. They also cater to the last minute lunch order for a lot of people. Meeting room has adequate facilities. It is a pleasant stay over there.

I recently stayed at the Novotel Hotel in Le Havre, Paris and had the most terrible experience ever. I got into the Hotel's lobby with 3 bags in the morning to check in, but because it was earlier than the check in time, I was told they could put the bags in storage.

The room was clean, and staff members were friendly and helpful (even in English). The hotel is located directly across from a shopping center, and it is only a short distance from "downtown"--where amazing bakeries, coffee shops, and chocolatiers could be found. Many wonderful restaurants are downtown as well, but the hotel itself has a wonderful restaurant inside. My 22-year-old... More

We mainly chose this hotel because of its proximity to Etretat and Honfleur. The hotel proposes a parking for those who wish. However, the check-in is not very well studied: you have to find a parking spot outside of the hotel (not so easy on this busy street), check-in in order to obtain the parking entry pass, go back to...
