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... More

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... More

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...

This is a pleasant, clean, small hotel in a wonderful location right next to the cathedral. I had a room overlooking the street and it was very quiet. I enjoyed my stay but there are a few points you need to be aware of. 1. You can only get into the hotel through a dialled code once you have booked... More

This is a gem of a hotel. Nothing fancy, but the friendly owners obviously had a vision when they remodeled two years ago and the result is one of the best deals you'll find. The location cannot be beat in Rouen unless you manage to sleep inside the cathedral, and that would not be as comfortable. If you are looking... More

Quite tired and scuffed in the room. Everything felt dated. Hope they don't make the mistake of modernising it badly - it works as it is, just needs sprucing up. Breakfast was beyond excellent. Very well presented and lots of choice. Lovely quiet setting. Very warm in bedroom and bathroom, plenty hot water.

We stayed at this hotel only 1 night at the start of our trip. We chose this hotel because of it's location next to the Cathedral; we were not disappointed. Our room was small but modern and very clean. Staff were pleasant and professional. The restaurant next door serves excellent food. We recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again.

This hotel is very conveniently located near the cathedral. Our room had great views of this. The furnishing of the rooms was modern and minimal, and everything was just right. This old building has been perfectly refurbished - my congratulations to the owners. What we were also impressed by was the breakfast. There were some very nice touches like fresh... More
