“Absolutely wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We stayed in the rooms in the main building (masion) during our honey moon. The interior of the main builidng and our room was wonderful, beautiful and cosy. The service was very good, since the hotel is small (only 25 rooms) it felt like the owner knew us well, and he was very polite and helpful. Very good breakfast. The hotel is situated close to the beach, and walking to the city by the beach promenade was nice. We strongly recommend this!

This small hotel is only 200m downhill to the beach which makes it wonderful value! Our room was clean, very comfortable and quiet with it overlooking the courtyard. There was a hospitality tray in our room which is unusual in France, and a TV. Staff we found exceptionally pleasant and helpful and we will certainly return. We misundersttod the parking so as we had not pre booked a place ,,we parked on the road which was free of charge ( is a quiet road )

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2008

We needed a cheap and simple place to stay 3 days in the area, as we wanted to visit Honfleur, Monet's Garden and Etratat. The hotel itself is an old building indeed, and the room was small, as was the bathroom, but we had a parking place for our car and just needed the hotel to sleep. For that purpose, this place was good enough for us. (Cheap, beds were ok, every day clean towels)

The area is nice, close to the center of Le Havre, and the hotel is close to the sea. For breakfast we needed to go to hotel Des Voiles, wich is about a 100 meters from Des Pares. We didn't mind walking a little in the morning, as the weather was nice. At Hotel Des Voiles, we received a fine breakfast with view to the sea. One day we had to wait 5 minutes because the breakfast room was full, no big deal to us. Both Hotels have free (unencrypted) wireless internet access.

Overall, the hotel met our expectations wich were not too high. The staff is friendly and helpfull. If we needed a place to stay in the area again we could imagine booking the same hotel.

HOTEL DES PHARES (2 stars), 29 rue du Gal de Gaulle, Ste Adresse - Le Havre, France

We stayed at the Hotel des Phares (27 rooms) in Le Havre Saint Adresse for 3 nights in room 2 (April 2007). This is a two star hotel which we would expect to provide a relatively good service in France. When we arrived we noticed that the building was old and seemed to have “character”.

We had chosen this hotel on the advice of the tourist office as we had asked for a quiet hotel. When booking we asked for a quiet room but in fact our room faced on to a fairly busy street (rue du Gal de Gaulle) with quite a lot of traffic. That being said we were within walking distance of the pebbly beach and its very nice promenade. We were also in a very nice area called Saint Adresse (a close suburb of Le Havre) with many old buildings which were not bombed during the World War II.

Our room was small with a tiny bathroom. We were told it had been renovated. But it still seemed bland. There was a double bed but there were no bedside tables or shelves. Moreover the light over the bed could only be turned on from one side of the bed so in fact the second person had no direct access from the bed to a light switch. The wardrobes were very shallow and were not very good for storing our things. There was also a desk and one chair in the room. The main
lamp in the room was designed to take three light bulbs. One was missing, one was working and the third one was on the blink.

The bathroom was tiny with a very small wash-hand basin, a shower (a very high step from the floor with a narrow corner access) and a toilet that refused to flush. The toilet seat was not attached to the toilet and kept falling off. We reported the problem with the toilet and the electric light bulb and when we came back the second night, we were able to flush the toilet once. After that we had to fill the plastic bin with water from the shower in order to flush the loo manually. There was no ventilation in the bathroom. However, the white towels were clean.

The breakfast was minimalist for this day and age in France with no plates provided (as was the tradition 20/30 years ago) with no choice
whatsoever except for tea or coffee. There was a glass of orange juice, coffee or tea and baguette and croissants (the margarine variety), nice butter but the jam was of poor quality. We asked for milk with our tea and coffee and we were provided grudgingly with a small amount. We were not offered extra helpings of tea or coffee. At breakfast time, some people had to wait for at least 20 minutes in the reception area as there were not enough tables available in the dining room.

The stairs leading to our room was small and winding and depending on your perspective “full of character” or “a fire hazard” as how everyone in the main building could get out in case of a fire is difficult to understand. There are in fact three separate buildings with separate entrances so we do not know the quality of the other rooms.

The owner of the hotel proudly said that his hotel was the only one in Le Havre to have a car park (which could take about four or five cars). We managed to get parking on the street.

We were not offered any reduction despite the fact that the toilet did not flush during most of our stay. We paid 59 euros for the room per night and 6 euros per person for breakfast. We wonder what the rooms which have not been renovated must be like.

All in all very disappointing. Very bad value for money. We will have
to try out other hotels to see which one is good value for money.
