Quite tired and scuffed in the room. Everything felt dated. Hope they don't make the mistake of modernising it badly - it works as it is, just needs sprucing up. Breakfast was beyond excellent. Very well presented and lots of choice. Lovely quiet setting. Very warm in bedroom and bathroom, plenty hot water.

We stayed at this hotel only 1 night at the start of our trip. We chose this hotel because of it's location next to the Cathedral; we were not disappointed. Our room was small but modern and very clean. Staff were pleasant and professional. The restaurant next door serves excellent food. We recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again.

This hotel is very conveniently located near the cathedral. Our room had great views of this. The furnishing of the rooms was modern and minimal, and everything was just right. This old building has been perfectly refurbished - my congratulations to the owners. What we were also impressed by was the breakfast. There were some very nice touches like fresh... More

We're had 3 rooms...The junior suite with 2 terraces, the single terrace room next door and a Catherdal room view below. Spend the extra money and get the terrace! You won't get a better view in Rouen. The public parking is right down the street. Beautiful clean room. Yes, they were bare bones. No AC so I slept with the... More

The noise outside was horrendous, the hotel employee posted a "Be back in 10 minute sign" but never came back. Food was ok but to many carbs, room was nice but small. She did give me a bag for my dirty laundry. Oh I was charged for a day I wasn't there.

But other clients complain about your behavior : they have been awake at 3 am (moving the furniture,banking the door) during more than 1 hour ..... We are staying at the hotel 24 H/ 24 h, it may be possible that we... More

The hotel was extremely comfortable, with a very comfortable queen size bed, good lighting beside the bed, a very nice shower and bathroom and a good view of the Rouen Cathedral from the window of our room. The staff was very professional. The breakfasts were also quite generous, with good choices of bread, croissants, cheese, jam, etc. We were very... More

I hate to review this wonderful hotel for fear that it will be totally booked the next time I go to Rouen. Right next to the cathedral, with two excellent restaurants just below, great rates, spotless, best bathroom in a budget hotel that I've seen in a long time, lovely couple running the place, excellent breakfast -- what more could...

The hotel was perfect. Clean, quiet and in a fantastic location right by the cathedral. We will definitely be going back to Rouen and would not think of staying any where else. There is a nice restaurant right next to the hotel.

Beautifully redecorated clean rooms with all new bathrooms; pleasant staff to guide you to the best things to see. Optional breakfast for purchase in the dining room was good and very convenient. Twice we ate in the recommended restaurant next door, very good. We had a car and could just park it a few blocks away in a public lot... More

This hotel is perfect for a short visit to Rouen, particularly if you want to see the "Rouen Lumieres Cathedral" which claims to be the best light show in France - and I must say that it was very good. Our room was on the corner with a balcony, well maintained and laid out. Recommended.
