“Great for a short stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We needed to spend 1 night in Caen before we drove to the ferry port and this hotel was very close to the Caen ringroad. Ibis is a chain of cheaper French hotels which we haven't used before. If others are as good as this, we would use them again for short stays.
The room was very clean and had sufficient for our needs. There was not much storage space, but since most people are only staying for a few days - this shouldn't be a major problem. The bathroom unit was small but spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Ibis operate a 15 minute guarantee - if there's a problem for which they are responsible and they can't fix it in 15 minutes, you stay as their guest. This is a very interesting idea which other hotels should consider offering - it would improve standards.
It would have been nice to be able to have coffee/tea making facilities but for €49 you can't have everything.

This is a clean, cheap overnight stay after or before the Brittany Ferry crossing.

I will use this hotel again. I did make time to visit Cean with all it's history but this is the first of many trips.

I also think that trip advisor should not require that my review but at least 200 words.

Have used Ibis a number of times. Relatively easy to find, not too far from the ferry port and on the southern side of Caen. Didn't use the restaurant except for breakfast but when we arrived late evening it seemed very well patronised. Would certainly use this hotel again.

Typical Ibis hotel. Some receptionists do not speak English (I did not receive any suggestions to buy specific batteries on Sunday, as no one of staff on the shift could speak any language then French). Comfortable beds. But noisy parking place in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for the room that is not facing the parking lot
