My husband and I spent two September nights at the Cardinal located just across the square to the Cathedral in the old city. We were very happy with both the location in old Rouen and with the hotel, which turned out to be quite easy to find...certainly a bonus. A small lobby with a lift took us to our second... More

Pristine, large room, helpful people. ignore the two star rating ( no restaurant, no 24hour concierge etc). First class. Good restaurants nearby, interesting town and free sons et lumiere each summer evening.

This charming hotel is centrally placed almost on the doorstep of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. We have stayed there on many occasions and is a convenient stopping off point between the channel ports and the south of France (in our case the Loire valley). There is a convenient car park nearby which will cost about 10 Euros for an... More

It enjoys a wonderful location in Place de la Cathedrale with the cathedral in full view out the window maybe a 100 metres away. The Rue de la Grosse Horloge begins in this Place and this takes you down to the Place de Vieux Marche where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. You can park in the Place... More

Stayed one night in a corner room next to the breakfast room. The spotless room exceeded expectations! Huge by French standards, modern, bright, cable tv, large bath and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delightful and filling. (The owner's friendly cat visited when beckoned, but was not a pest. Loved it!) Nearby parking was under ground at a nominal fee. The... More

We stayed for 2 nights here. We actually thought it was a 3 star hotel and were surprised upon our arrival to learn it was a 2 star. The proprieter upgraded us to a larger room( the lift goes as far as the 4th floor and there were some steps to the 5th but it was easy.) We were helped... More

We couldn't get enough of the view! We also loved hearing the bells every hour! (they do stop at 10:00 pm) Hotel was very clean and our room, I think it was room 10, was roomy. The bathrooms have been updated and were very nice. It was a bit frustrating when we arrived at 1:30 pm and the hotel was... More

Parking is located close by, approx 10 euros for overnight in an underground carpark. We were able to locate the hotel easily as it is situated just in front of the Cathedral in the main square. The sign as you go in states 2 stars so I wasn't expecting very much. The rate was 160 euros a night excluding breakfast,... More

This is a lovely, wonderful, newly renovated hotel that is spotlessly clean and has beautiful bedlinens. The bed was also new and very comfortable. Unfortunately, it is in Rouen, a city that is worth skipping if you are sightseeing in France. And don't try to go on a Friday afternoon in rush hour. If you can locate the street, (even... More

The Hotel le Cardinal is a little gem. I was on the 4th floor, with a view of the cathedral that made me laugh out loud, it was so beautiful. M. and Mme. Waroquet, the innkeepers, were gracious and helpful. The funny little elevator was much appreciated (funny in that it is tiny, and one enters by one door and... More
