“Newest area and development”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

I like Normandy and usually stay in Caen or nearby.
This is a new hotel in a redeveloped shopping area with restaurants and cafes very close by.
I stayed for 10 days during the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy landings and the hotel was very busy with lots of visitors but everything was dealt with quickly, there were no long queues.
The parking arrangement with the shopping centre is very good and cheap.
The room was a good size with black-out curtains and a big window. The bed was very comfortable and there were English tv stations for news in addition to the local options.
The bar area had a computer nearby for those who don't travel with a computer or internet access, though one day when it needed a password the staff on duty said they didn't know it.
.
One day I had trouble with the air-conditioning, by the time I had returned the next afternoon it was fixed. The hotel is near the peripherique, getting you on the motorway and to your daily destination with no fuss. The only thing I would say is that the prices for the anniversary week were very expensive - but I think that was the same everywhere.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We booked this hotel at the last minute when our planned accommodation didn't work out, For once I am pleased we had to change our plans at the last minute. This hotel is very nice. It is basic in many ways but is spotlessly clean, spacious, has air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi. We booked online late in the afternoon and arrived a couple of hours later. Everything was as booked, a twin room as requested, and we were given a choice of low or high floor. The hotel is by the river and is only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Breakfast which is included in the room price is a continental style, again basic but with everything you need to start the day. The hotel does not have a restaurant for lunch or evening meals but there are plenty of eating places within a two minutes walk.
If you are travelling by car be aware that the underground car park (part of a large public car park) is available for hotel guests for 2 euros a night from 6pm until 10am the following day, paid to the hotel. (I was told the normal overnight charge was 25 euros). If you choose to leave your car in the car park for the whole day I understand the cost is about 12 euros extra but you pay as a normal user, not through the hotel. It appears that all on street parking in the area is chargeable with ticket machines on every street.
We found the staff at the hotel very pleasant and helpful and all appear to speak good English. As I said earlier, Wi-Fi is free. It amazes me that a budget hotel chain like Ibis can provide free Wi-Fi when upmarket and far more expensive four and five star hotels charge a fortune for it. Well done Ibis

Stayed one night and it was a good choice. The staff were friendly, the room was very large by european standards. Bed was comfy and good quality bedding. We had room 714 which had a large corridor before the main bedroom which gave it twin aspect so very light and airy.
The bathroom was roomy and clean. Breakfast was included in the price and was good quality.
There is also free tea and coffee in the foyer.
The parking is closeby but is only the same parking as the shopping centre so can get expensive if you leave the car in all day.
There are lots of restuarants nearby, close enough to walk to.

Room Tip: 714 is a corner room so very roomy.

I paid 144 EUR / night in this hotel; now, nearly everything was clean, but: room's windows were sealed, and air conditioning was not switched on (too early in the year, despite a warm April); the room was huge, but empty, nearly no furniture, no closet, nothing; the breakfast room was sad like the breakfast room of an hospital, with a tv set and a radio switched on at the same time - quite annoying - and food choice was near to nothing; location is not so easy to reach by car, and if you leave the car just outside the hotel to get out your luggage, you are informed about the risk to get a ticket for parking - well, I expect that an hotel has some agreements with the city authorities to allow to guest to park for some minutes; I booked two nights, but I left after just one, 144,- EUR / night were honestly too much, and I begin to have enough to pay too much for my hotel stays, also considering the interesting new offers by other chains (see my Hamburg and Dossenheim reviews); free internet ok, but you have to "register" yourself every time you begin a session, at least if you use an ipad, quite annoying
