The memory of this hotel that I will never forget is, locating it during a very busy rush-hour in darkness. If you are unfamiliar with this hotel and you are driving,attempt to locate it during daylight. It is located in the 'old' part of town, even when successful you have to communicate with the hotel via a speaker, in order... More

Hello, We are in the very center of the city in the historical center, it's why it'quite difficult to enter in a pedestrian area. For information it' not the hotel who is in order to allow the bollard but the police. We hope that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you a next time. Best regards Florian Reception More

The idea behind the Best Western Hotel Litteraire was intriguing. We only stayed overnight but I could have spent a week reading my way through their Flaubert library. The hotel staff were helpful and charming, our room spacious , quiet and well appointed. There was parking available for an extra 13€, which saved us the chore of looking for a... More

Really pleased with our stay. We love Rouen and the wonderful historic heart of the city. The half timbered buildings, churches, cathedral and restaurants are so worth a visit as is the Joan of Arc presentation.

Great hotel. Fantastic location in the centre of Rouen. Room was excellent. Plenty of room and a very comfy bed. Underground parking at hotel was a bonus. Very close to the restaurants and bars of this beautiful French town.

We had a pair of rooms behind a front door onto a little hallway, in the annexe under the archway, which was ideal as we had our teenage son with us and he could be private in his own room.

We had booked a so called comfort room including breakfast directly at the Best Western website for a short stopover from Brittany to Germany.

The hotel, ideally located in the historic center of Rouen, close to the place du Vieux- Marché, the literary hotel, Gustave Flaubert, pays tribute to the writer in the city where he was born and where he spent the major part of his life.
