I was a little concerned that an inexpensive hotel across from the train station would be a bit run-down, but that was not the case. This little hotel is well-maintained and quite comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant/bar downstairs is reasonably priced and the food was excellent. The neighborhood around the hotel was good, too. We... More

Great value and a great location for travel. There is also a nice cafe on premises with reasonably priced food and excellent service. The room was clean and the bathroom most adequate. All things considered, I would stay here again.

This place is great. Right next to the station. Next to the car hire places. Clean, cheap, well run. Good beers at the bar. Tasty breakfast. Free fast wifi. Extremely nice and helpful service. Held our bags when we checked out. Gave us great dinner recommendations. Highly recommended.

Stayd here for 3 nights while visiting the Normandy Beaches and other D-Day sites. Hotel rooms are small, but that is standard for most European budget hotels. Breakfast at the hotel was good and gave us a good start to the day. The staff was extremely friendly and the location is amazing. Directly across from the train station and very... More

We only stayed for one night before hiring a car and moving to Bayeux as our base for the landing beaches. We had come from Aix-en-Provence by train and felt that Caen was far enough for one day. We chose this hotel because it is directly across from the railway station, tram stop and beside the car hire companies. The... More

We are here only for one night and are very happy with the place. It is right across the street from the railway station. The food and friendly service are perfect when you are tired from traveling. We would recommend it to fellow traveler's.

Wonderful place to stay :) Right across from the train station, so it was conveniently located (it was also close to car rental places, restaurants, and the castle) . As soon as we entered the building a gentleman helped us out with our itinerary (renting a car, where to go visit, how long it would take to drive etc.). He... More

This charming hotel is the perfect spot for arriving, departing and visiting Caen and the area. Across from train, tram, bus station (and nearby several rental car companies), you can get anywhere in Caen and Normandy from here. The hotel and restaurant were very clean and well-maintained. But the best part of the stay was the staff. They were very... More

Right opposite the train station, outstanding service and very friendly staff. We really appreciated all their help as soon as we checked in. Very reasonable rates, and very clean hotel room. The food was good. They even cooked us dinner when they were about to close the restaurant. They went above and beyond reasonable expectations.Special thanks to Julian, Regis and... More

This hotel is located in the convenient if slightly down at heel station area. Although the area looks unprepossessing there is a tram stop directly opposite which will take you to the city centre ( or about 10-15 mins walk)and the subway under the station leads you to the Rives L'Orne shopping centre where there are chain restaurants and a...
