OK location I very much enjoyed the breakfast to start the day off correctly...You need to use bus rout #14 if you are on foot to get to the center of town. From the train station to the Tourist office is a 15 min walk. to get all the info you need for the area.

I have stayed here a number of times as an overnight stop on my way to the ferry in Cherbourg. It is a good value no frills Hotel. The rooms were clean and the Wifi works well in the bedroom. It also has secure parking. The breakfast is good. Has vending machines for coffee, tea, chocolate and water.

This hotel is perfect if you're passing through and want an easily-accessible base for exploring Caen and the excellent war memorial (2 mins drive away). The room was clean and bigger than I've had at many Ibis hotels, looked out onto a quiet row of trees, good free wifi, hot shower and comfy bed. It's obviously not centrally-located but it's...

We stopped here straight after getting off the late ferry to Caen. Booking in was easy enough using the automated system and secure parking was a bonus. The hotel itself is out of Caen on a quiet and bleak industrialised area. It felt safe enough but definitely isn't a place to explore in the day. The corridors etc all smelt... More

This BB hotel is ok, there is no lift so be aware, it is very well placed for all the museums to do with the normandy landings, even though there was a full house the breakfast bar was maintained and all was available til closing time.

We used it both when we landed off the 21.30 ferry arrival and on our way home. Very easy to find, just look left as you come off the ring road.

Stayed in a twin room with a friend - not even a foot between the beds and not a lot of storage. Very basic, tv, beds and bathroom. No chairs or anything Was incredibly warm despite being November. Good value BUT don't expect any home comforts, though the shower was good and powerful

“be aware there is no lift”

“Don't forget that a late arrival means that you must check in again on the machine in the doorway! You also need to take the credit/debit card (and code) with you which you used to secure the booking. Also higher floors in this hotel in the centre of the building could suffer from air conditioning noise. The drone is noticeable when coming down the stairwell.”
