Good for a one, maybe two night stay. It's close to the train station which is great. If you have more than your carry on and one personal item, it might be a bit of a struggle to walk to and from the train. The breakfast is way too expensivr fit what they offer. You're better off getting food elsewhere.

We had such a nice stay here. Quad rooms are sizeable, especially by European standards, and very quiet. Easy location; 15-20 walk to center, 5 to station. Good WiFi once it got past initial hiccups, powerful shower, generous breakfast, bar to relax in the evening. Small parking lot but they squeezed the cars in and no problem as long as... More

You could not open the door to the bathroom... More

Stayed two nights.Room was somehow not arranged.After we complained it was arranged but they forgot to change towels.Bathroom is very small.Location is average-not so close to the center although it is a walking distance. The staff,however,is very friendly. In the same price,I would go for a better hotel which is better located.

Thank you for taking time to leave a comment. We take note of all your remarks. We are sorry if your stay was not perfect. We are located in front of a big mercant galery with many restaurants around, the walking distance to go to the castle is 10-15 minutes. More

I chose this hostel for its proximity to the train station. I stopped for a night on the way from Bayeux to Paris and wanted something nearby the train station but still close to restaurants, a grocery market, and within walking distance of Chateau Ducal. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were kind. The helped... More

If you are travelling by train to or from Toulouse this is right around the corner. Great for an overnight. This is not a luxury hotel but a good solid 3 star. There is shopping across the street and you can walk to restaurants from here.

Nice hotel near the railway station, a shopping centre on the opposite side of the street. Not too long walk to the castle and other sights. Good value for money. Quiet room. The bathroom was small but clean. The air conditioning could have been better.

This was our last stay in France as we were catching the early morning ferry. We were welcomed very warmly and were able to get our car in the limited parking which is at the side of the hotel (to the right of the entrance). Everywhere was clean and the room was adequate. Our shower room was very small, a... More

We've had a wonderful stay at this hotel, incredible room, rate and location. Staff is wonderful and incredibly helpful. Due to the train strike our train to Mont St Michel was cancelled, they helped us find a cab so we were able to get there as this is our last day. Also assisted us with some cheese we bought demonstrating... More

Easy to find friendly hotel by the river in Caen. Secure enclosed garage for motorcycle and FREE ! Convenient for the Normandy beaches which was the purpose of our trip. Friendly helpful staff and the hotel itself was a good choice.
