“Perfect location and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We booked through the tourist office in Caen, as we arrived in Caen late afternoon. Went straight to the hotel which was 2 minutes from the office and we needed private parking for the car. Perfect location for walking about the town centre and shops. Room was clean and the man on duty on reception (the Manager?) and in attendance at breakfast was very friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: The room we had was adequate for the night.

You can't get a more convenient location in the heart of Caen. An easy walk to the chateau, St. Pierre, the office de tourisme, and restaurants and shopping. It's on the light rail path which runs from the train station if you are traveling by train, or if you are traveling by car, there is free parking behind the hotel.

The manager is very friendly and helpful; the rooms are clean and adequate.

We were four friends who stayed here in 2 rooms, Nos 10 and 14, for 3 nights (actually these are 4 person rooms - double and two single beds in each). We were visiting the D-Day beaches etc and wanted a convenient centre. Once we'd negotiated the Caen peripherique we found the hotel easily enough and parked in the somewhat cramped hotel parking behind it, (3 places plus garage) but with direct access into the hotel from the back. There is a 2 person lift which was needed as we we were aged 70-86. The largish rooms are basic but clean, beds comfortable, old fashioned furniture, decorated in pastel colours. En-suite bathrooms (these had shower, no bath) were small but adequate. Both rooms were at the front, overlooking a main street and the St. Pierre church and chateau, but reasonably quiet nevertheless. Breakfast at €8 was OK - orange juice, coffee or chocolate (but presumably tea would also have been available), a croissant, half a baguette, and a selection of butter and jams, but I personally would have liked some cold meats as well (greedy pig). Nice little lounge with maps of D-Day beaches on the wall etc. The major advantage of the hotel is its situation in the centre of Caen and its easy walking distance from the shops, banks, the chateau and all the restaurants/brasseries/cafes on the nearby Quai Vendeuvre. The manager was very helpful and recommended the La Taverne restaurant next door on our last night (free aperitifs with the hotel's card!). An excellent choice for a city centre hotel if you don't want or need all the fripperies and luxuries.

Recently stayed at Hotel du Chateau in Caen. Very pleasant experience. Rate was very reasonable, excellent location-as the name inplies very close to the Caen Chateau. In the center of town, the tram stop is across the street. Room was nothing exceptional, but clean with all basic needs.

What did separate this hotel from others was the service. The manager went way out of his way to see that we were happy. In booking the room, my email was down for a while so I called the hotel directly to book the room, I offerd my credit card to reserve the room but the manager told me it was not necessary, he said he trusted me to show up. As we had 3 people in the room, we asked for another set of towels and within the hour we had another 3 sets. The breakfast room was full so the manger set up another room for us and personally brought in a complete petite dejeuner for us to enjoy.

His staff was very helpful in helping us find our way to the Caen Memorial. He extended our check out time when they found out our train did not leave till 14:00, then brought our bags out for us.

Highly recommended.
