This hotel is in an absolutely breathtaking location so that you have a front row seat and view of the magnificent Rouen cathedral. We had a great view and a balcony, and enjoyed wine on that while looking over the plaza and cathedral. The hotel itself is modern, clean and comfortable. The room was nice-sized and the bed was very...

We had the unusual experience of booking the one night before the owners went on a mini-vacation so we were the only guests in the hotel. Our immaculate room, with balcony, faced Rouen Cathedral. The appointments were very nice and the bed was among the most comfortable we stayed in during our 5 weeks in France. Breakfast was substantial, so...

We booked in Rouen to get over "jet lag"--and could not have been more pleased. The hotel was an easy walk from the train, and right next door to the Cathedral. Our 4th floor suite had not one, but TWO balconies--and a front row seat to the sound and light show that played across the face of the cathedral. The...

I stayed in this hotel with my wife on a two week vacation to France. It is a very nice hotel conveniently located in city center immediately adjacent to the Rouen Cathedral. Clean, comfortable, modern, very nice management. A nice 5-10 minute walk from the train station. I would stay there again when visiting Rouen.

This hotel is right by the Cathedral and about 500 metres from the old market. We stayed on a Sunday – and would warn other visitors that the reception closes on Sundays from 13.00 to 17.00. If you are expecting to be received at 14.00, you will need to wander around the city for a couple of hours! There is,...

15 rooms right on plaza for Cathedral. In the middle of all you want to see. Small elevator to access our 4th floor room. two rooms, one with 2 nice chairs and small bedroom. Balcony on 2 sides. Highly recommend it.

Booked as a surprise birthday getaway by my hubby, I found the cardinal hotel to be very modern, clean and staff very helpful. The views from our room of the cathedral were amazing, and we had a lovely balcony to sit and sip wine (room 19). Location was very convenient for shops, restaurants and historic attractions. Had a lovely stay.

The location is great, just next to the cathedral. The room was clean and renewed. However, we felt it was overpriced for what it had to offer: - the furniture is very basic (little stools next to the bed instead of bed tables), plain room without any décorations, found only one socket, no soap holder, no kettle. Towels looked clean...

On a recent trip to France, my wife and I stayed here with another couple. The hotel is located near the center of most of the major attractions in Rouen. The rooms are clean and a short walk to all the attractions and numerous restaurants. If you do arrive by train it is approximately a 20 minute walk which is...

This hotel is perfectly situated in the square with the cathedral and is walking-distance from shops, all the main historic attractions, and the train station. The check-in was efficient, and I was given information about breakfast and the code to get into the building at night because they lock the doors after a certain point. The room was modern and...
