We stayed at the hotel 3 night. The location is the best. Just near the cathedral, 5 min walk from the river in the middle of the old city. Rooms are not big; needs redecoeation. Bath also could use a facelift. The coredors needs more light. We didnt try the beakfast so I cant comment about it. No parking for... More

We spent three nights at this very central, very French hotel right beside the Cathedral walls. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and our room which was large and very comfortable overlooked the lovely tranquil courtyard. We travelled by train and took a taxi to/from the station which was quite reasonable and also visited Giverney by train and bus. The... More

It was fantastic to stay so very close to both the cathedral at Rouen and the Eglise de Saint Maclou. Staff were very helpful and spoke English despite my dubious attempts at French. I was given a helpful map that we couldn't have done without, of the city. The rooms were clean and fine for our overnight stay. The only... More

When our taxi driver dropped us off at the opening to an alley and told us the hotel was down the way we were a bit taken aback. What we found was a friendly staff and a decent hotel. The room was small and quaint but clean and adequate. The toilet would not flush well at all (a major drawback)... More

An old tutor style building located just across from the amazing gothic styled cathedral ( as the name suggests). Rooms are quintessential old style French, complete with lovely wallpaper, European pillows and a comfortable queen bed. A note: the lift goes to the fourth floor only of five floors and is accessed across the courtyard from the reception, up six... More

We aksed for a triple room wich was nice even if the third bed was not an excellent one for a young adult. The hotel is located in a quite street and very near to the catedral and center of the city which is very convenient. Nice breakfast but wifi was not relaible in our room.

We came across this charming little French hotel when exploring Rouen's medieval streets. From the outside the Hotel de la Cathedrale is located on a cobbled narrow historic street and has lovely grand wooden doors at the entrance. We went in to ask the room rates for the night, not having looked the hotel up on Trip Advisor (!) and... More

Our recent experience with this hotel was a disaster. The street looks like a war zone with all the construction underway for the Abbey (workers start early so there is no sleep in), staff were very unhelpful, the location of the hotel is in the seedier part of Rouen with the main hotel doors locked at 9pm, the Wifi was...

We arrived late in the evening and found the hotel easily thanks to the directions given by the hotel, we parked at the local car park which was only a short walk from the hotel. Upon entering through the fantastic large wooden doors we were welcomed by a warm and homely foyer. Up to our room and we couldn't have... More
