“The friendliest small hotel with excellent service and hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I have never seen such a busy proprietor. We arrived as a family of four strangers and were welcomed like old friends. I witnessed an afternoon with 40-50 customers in all at once for drinks and they were all served with expedience. Within about 45 minutes everyone had been attended to and then all left to catch a train. A sight to see.

We had a couple of nights in Caen recently and stayed at the 2 star La Consigne. This hotel is directly opposite the rail station in a slightly tired part of town. However, the rooms were very well maintained, very clean (as was the whole hotel) and service by the staff was outstanding. Very friendly and willing to speak English, although we tried our hardest to speak our french. We had a few drinks in the bar and a meal, which was well priced and tasty. This hotel was one of the best 2 star hotels we have stayed in in France, better than some 3 stars. Surprisingly, the owners gave us a bottle of wine as a departing gift. Very unusual for a hotel to 'tip' the customers. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Good location, clean and friendly staff.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Across the street from the train station, also the trams and Green Bus. Very clean hotel in a row of low-end cafes/bars/hotels. Rej was very helpful and appreciative of our limited French. Noises from other rooms, but quite inexpensive especially for the single traveler. We took bus #2 to the excellent Musee Memorial and did the museum's 4-hour mini-van tour of the D-Day beaches.
