Location is good, 20 minutes walking from the train station. Many bars and restaurants around. Good wifi. Good place for exploring D-Day Beaches. Bad points no lift, my room was in 3th floor. Reception is not 24 hours, and they provide a key card. One day the Key Card stop to work, I was luck that was during the day,... More

No frills here but at €49 a night you can't complain. Helpful reception guy who gave me a map and will lend you a hair dryer. Room is small and bathroom needs some refurbishment. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Amused by unique bathroom feature of painted tiles. Area is noisy but double glazed window was highly effective. Great location... More

This hotel is very affordable, close to the transport and attractions, and has good facilities. The breakfast is good value. The rooms are clean, comfortable and average sized. The staff are helpful but of varying levels of friendliness. Restaurants, take-away shops and a Carrefour supermarket are in walking distance. I had a pleasant stay and would stay there again.

I was in Paris and decided to take a two day trip to Normandy to visit the World War 2 sights. I found this hotel online, read the reviews and booked an overnight stay. It turned out to be a terrific choice. The hotel is located just a block or two from the Castle that overlooks the whole city, and... More

I walked from the train station to the hotel--a 15-min walk normally--but my lousy sense of direction meant it took me an hour. I was pleasantly surprised to come along side a waterway with sail boats and cobblestoned streets and recognize Hotel l'Universe. Charming and my hotel looked down on this view. My room was on the 4th floor which... More

comfortable hotel in a great location right next to the marketplace car park and bars, restaurants etc. Our room was basic but had everything we needed for a short stay. Very well priced. One massive word of warning - the car park opposite is used for the market every Sunday and cars left overnight will be towed away. I parked... More

What a great little small hotel. Close to the centre, overlooking the quay with a public car park opposite, free overnight. We were upgraded as the hotel was empty, so got a smart corner room with full length French windows and Juliet balconies. Well maintained and smart small hotel with reasonable size room and pleasant breakfast room, all for the... More

Extremely nice and helpful workers. Within walking distance to the tram that one can catch at the train station. Also within walking distance to the bus that goes to the War Museum. Coffee pot in room needed replacing. Hand held shower in huge tub. Quirky place which makes traveling fun. If one wants sterile and boring then go to the... More

Stayed three nights for the D-Day celebrations in a room on the first floor. There is no lift in this hotel and it was a struggle with the suitcase and no offer of help. The room was basic, at least I had a separate toilet. My sister and husband were on the second floor with no door on the toilet.... More

This is a basic but clean, quiet and friendly hotel. Good welcome at reception, with helpful advice. Big car park opposite is free from 19.00 to 9.00, and around €1.20 per hour during the pay period. It's right opposite so quite handy. Room at the front with view of marina (103). Comfy bed, kettle, tea, coffee. Double glazed so quiet... More
