“Good value, friendly staff”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

Usual smallish room and bath but our room was clean and bed linens seemed newer. We were there in spring so can't comment on mosquito problem. Small annoyance for us was being just far enough from the train station that we didn't feel like walking. The local tram runs from the station almost to the front door. We never completely understood the ropes but it did the job. ...For what it's worth, we loved Normandy and wished we had more time.

Good value price/quality

Rooms and bathrooms are basic, but clean and quite spacious. Main "pros" of the hotel are excellent and very helpful staff and location - just halfway from old bassin Saint-Pierre to Castle (two minutes on foot both).

Hotel is bike-friendly, bicycles spent the night in a garage. There are some restaurants nearby but i recommend to eat in Rue du Vaugueux (east from Castle) - there are plenty of good and various restaurants.

Twitchy the Wonder Bunny, a pink and blue globe trotting bunny spent three nights at the Hotel Astrid. The rooms are very dated and could use a make over. The rooms were quiet with not a lot of street noise. There was a problem with mosquitoes. If the windows were left open, you were bitten. If the windows were closed, the rooms were hot and stuffy. Wifi is available and free. The staff was very friendly and helpful.For 7 euro, you can have a continental breakfast delivered to your room. It was very good. The rooms are up a flight of stairs with no elevator so this is not a handicap accessible hotel.

Friendly helpful staff and a great location. The rooms are very dated and due for a facelift. Tight fit for a family of 2 adults and 2 children but it did the job.

We are a family of 5, 3 small children. The room was not big enough for us. On the positive it is very cheap and central. Negatively, it was very dusty so a nightmare for asthma, it took twenty minutes running the tap for hot water and I'm sure I was being bitten by something.

We stayed here on our last night in Normandy on the 6th June.We trawled through most of Caen looking for a room for the night but most were booked up. We came across this hotel which doesnt look anything special from the outside but once you get inside, you immediately feel at home and cosy. the female owner speaks good english and is very friendly. the hotel is clean and simple like most small european hotels but the decor is nice an updated and very pretty and homely. the only gripe i have with the hotel was the bathroom was small even for this type of hotel, but honestly? that is clutching at straws. when i go back to Normandy next year please God, i will stay here again on my last night. thank you for an enjoyable stay in beautiful Normandy

Room Tip: the toilet has a weird flush mechanism, ill let you find it! :-)
