I was in Caen for business and spent three nights at La Consigne. Yes, the room was small, but extremely clean and quiet. No, there isn't an elevator, but the proprietors carried my giant suitcase up and down the stairs for me. And the free Wi-Fi works!
The best part is the service. When I had to catch a very early train to go to a meeting, the hosts opened the restaurant early to serve me breakfast. And when I came back too tired to sit and eat dinner, they prepared what I wanted and carried it upstairs for me, even though they don't do room service.
The location couldn't be better: across from the train and the tram, and a short walk to the center of the city. I'm a woman who travels alone, and I felt very safe in the neighborhood.
A word about the food: yum! I thought that the breakfast was huge: OJ, yogurt, a croissant with jam, part of a toasted baguette with butter, and coffee! They even offered refills on the coffee. I also had dinner there, plus a cheese plate, and the food was delicious and plentiful.
When I return to Caen in October, I will definitely stay at La Consigne again.
