“Good Basic 2 Star Hotel in a Very Good Location”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Very good location near the castle, transportation and the old city.
The hotel has been recently renovated. We had a superior double for about 90 euros. Decent size room and bathroom, good shower. The room was very clean.
Elevator stops at "half" floors so you have to walk a half flight of stairs to get to your room.
There are a few free parking spots in front of the hotel, but you have to be lucky to get one. There is parking very near, under the chateau, for about 10 euros for 24 hours.

Perfectly located near an eponymous tramstop , 5 minutes walk from chateau, university, town centre, and a lot of really good bookshops. Quiet and comfortable rooms of a decent.size. friendly staff. Breakfast copious though sadly no eggs. What's not to like?

Modern rooms. Very clean. Good location. Our room was on the 4th floor (the lift only goes to 3) we had a balcony which was great.
Good buffet breakfast with plenty of choices.
The only downside was the noise from the lift which was fairly annoying when it was late at night or early morning.

My husband and I have just enjoyed a short stay at the Hotel Des Quatrans. Our room was spotlessly clean, if a little on the small side. The bathroom was even smaller, I am petite but had a job to get in and shut the door, but again spotlessly clean. We had to have a rota to move around the room one at a time! But an excellent central location, close to shops, restaurants, bars and the fabulous weekend market. Parking can be tricky and the staff weren't particularly helpful on this front. But just use the underground car park - entrance by the castle, very close to the hotel - convenient and reasonable rates for central parking. The staff, whilst not particularly chatty, had our key ready to hand to us us when we arrived (early) and before we even spoke or said our name! Must have been the only English guests arriving that day.
A perfectly adequate city centre hotel for a short stay at a reasonable rate.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel, whilst small, are very, very quiet.

Stayed here Oct 2011 as family of 5. This is a good, basic hotel for a city centre stay for a few nights. Breakfast buffet was good. Plenty of extremely good restaurants not far away. Parking is a bit tricky - street parking on a meter, and you may need to drive around for a bit to find a space. However, you can park outside the hotel to load/unload.

I stayed there fore some days in October 2011. The hotel is situated in the center of the town, a couple of minutes away from the Sunday market an every other attraction in Caen. The rooms are spotless (I stayed at the 4th floor, with a balcony), the service is very good and so is breakfast (cheese, ham, fresh fruit, yoghurt and 100 % juice in addition to the normal French jam and honey). I would recommend this hotel to everybody planning a stay in Caen!

I will preface to say that I stayed here with our school group of 24 people. We were the only ones in the hotel, and we were not a loud group ... BUT you may want to confirm that there are no groups if you are concerned.
There are approx. 45 rooms,most of which have been renovated. We stayed on the first floor in room that has not been redone, and it was lovely. BUT my students stayed on the 3rd and 4th floor in renovated rooms ... WOW! Clean, new bathrooms etc. They were on cloud nine and I was jealous!

Breakfast was scrumptious, and staff was lovely. I would stay there again in a flash, with or without my students!

Room Tip: Ask for upper-most floor.
