Excellent location, close to the cathedral and opposite a very good restaurant, Le Bouchon Normand. This was a stop-over before taking the ferry back to Portsmouth, and suited us very well for a one night stay.

Overnight stay. Very clean and comfortable. Central and good street parking outside. Sunday market behind hotel. I was disappointed that the room was quite hot and the window only opened slightly unlike windows on the other side we could see when we looked up from the market, a fan might be useful. The TV was also set at a very... More

Booked this hotel as a stop over on a journey from Calais. Parking was free outside the hotel from 17.30 to 09.00. The staff were very helpful and the room spotlessly clean with crisp bed linen. Well located with restaurants nearby. Would certainly visit again

It was a very nice overnight. I've drunk the best coffee in my life and the place is close both to the beach and city centre. It was very clean, breakfast was very good and staff very nice. They had super small pancakes. There is no way to fall in the shower, because it's too tiny (oversized people be careful),... More

The bathroom was a bit small but the room was totally clean and good quality. The location of the hotel is good close to tram station and 10 minutes walk to the beech. Staffs are friendly and speaking English very well.

Small lovely hotel near the beach and the centre of Le Havre, convenient for reaching all the city's attractions both by car and on foot. The area is quiet and very nice to explore.

I so want to give this hotel a better review. The ladies on reception were both fantastic and the welcome and support was very refreshing, what with all the hassle caused by the strikes, and I was very grateful. Great welcome pack. Great decor in the common areas. Room comfortable. But unfortunately, the walls/floors/ceilings are just too thin, so there's... More
