We arrived on a Sunday; a very unassuming hotel from the outside in the middle of a residential area, quite a distance from the tourist attractions ( castle, etc.) The decor inside the hotel was a pleasant surprise, modern with some very nice touches. The staff were very helpful. The bedroom was a moderate size, clean and tidy with a... More

It's a stylish hotel in a not-so-stylish location (next to a Midas muffler shop). But for a visit to Normandy, it makes a good base. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the room comfortable and well-equipped. Our room had a king bed, and an Interesting bathroom with a shower fixture on the wall and drain in the floor, making the... More

On our driving trip through the North of France, we decided to spend a couple of nights in Caen and use it as our base for exploring Mont St. Michel and the D-Day beaches near by. We booked the Hotel Ivan Vautier on line and were pleased with the hotel, its Michelin-starred restaurant, and the location. In terms of the... More

We stayed in Caen for two nights as a base point to do the Normandy beaches and Mont St Michel. The hotel is located in a non-descript neighborhood in Caen, and not in the central part of the city. That was not a problem for us as we were there to not really see Caen, but the other nearby attractions.... More

The hotel is furnished with high class furnitures and first class amenities however rooms extremely small and if you are on the second floor you must be very careful not heat your head on the walls. The hotel needs a good advise from Human engineer

I visited the Ivan Vautier hotel as part of a D-Day trip and used the hotel as a starting points for visits to the Pegasus bridge, Quisterham, the beaches etc. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Caen which comes in handy because you will not get stuck in the downtown traffic. The hotel has it's own parking area.... More

Chose this luxury hotel for its location and to experience the cooking in this michelin starred hotel. We wasn't disappointed with either. Great friendly staff with good english. Soft drinks and beers expensive but we found this throughout Normandy. Would happily return.

Loved it here. This was our base hotel post visit of Mont Saint Michel and for our tour of the Normandy beaches. Parking is included behind the hotel and you have to drive slowly by the hotel to find the entrance. There is a Pizza Bus (food truck) across the street which was delicious and very reasonable which sold wine... More

Towels, toiletries, robes, slippers, complimentary tea and coffee and water, extra touches that make the experience of staying here most enjoyable. Air conditioning in the room too.

All very modern, but all rather dark and a little gloomy. Not a lot of atmosphere. Good car parking and pleasant staff. A little too far out of town for easy sightseeing. Breakfast ok but I wish French hotels would use fresh milk, not longlife
