Upon arriving at Hotel Carmin, we immediately felt welcome, Jean-Pierre and Thierry gaves us tips on where to go and eat, and it was like you arrived at a friend's house for holiday :-)

The room we had looked like it was recently renovated (bathroom) and was very comfortable.
Breakfast was simple (French) and was catered with care and service.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, we highly recommend it to anyone!

We stayed here over Easter for three nights. The hotel is in the center of the town and near the beach and parking is easy.

From the minute we arrived until the time we left we were looked after in a way rarely found in a hotel. Nothing was to much trouble - out hosts did everything possible to ensure we had a great stay. Everything everywhere was spotless. The public areas and the rooms were stylish. The breakfast was nice - everything was fresh and really nice coffee.

We would certainly recommend this hotel - indeed we hope to return before to long and soak up the hospitality.

I absolutely loved my stay at Hotel Carmin. The location is very central, within easy walking distance to the beach, the mall, brasseries, boulangeries, boutiques, and outstanding Perret architectural highlights like St. Joseph's. The room was very clean and filled with modern amenities. The lobby is stylish and offers a plethora of reading material about the region. The breakfast is delicious and fresh. The hotel was also an excellent home base for our touring of the Normandy region. It was easy to hop a bus or a train for visits to Etretat, Honfleur, Fecamp, and the D-Day beaches. What made the stay most remarkable was the service. Our hosts were incredibly warm, kind, charming, and helpful. They were attentive to our every need, and made us feel instantly comfortable and at home. If I am lucky enough to return to Normandy I hope to stay at the Hotel Carmin.

Many others have praised this little hotel and I have little to add, only to echo. It is a welcoming, comfortable, charming little hotel in a very convenient location in Le Havre. It is owner-run and these folks really pay attention to detail. I especially enjoyed the genuine interest the owners showed in helping us plan our stay in Le Havre and our onward drive through Saint Adresse and on toward Dieppe. Their hospitality was outstanding.

We arrived in Le Havre at about 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon. We had flown into Paris that morning and we were at the end of a long day. The two, I assume, owners were just a delight. They got us into our rooms quickly and efficiently. We were told to park in the street in front of the hotel as we would not need to worry about a parking ticket until 9:00 the next morning. They gave us directions to the beach where we would find a number of restaurants. It was an easy walk. After dinner when we returned they were quite gracious in chatting with us in the lobby as my buddy and I enjoyed a taste of the B&B brandy that we had bought at the Benedictine Abbey earlier in the day. They even provided us with proper glasses. They also told us about a town that we should visit on our way to Omaha beach the next day. The breakfast was fine and so were the rooms. As I said, all-in-all a great start to our vacation in France.

I was staying in Le Havre for a conference and really enjoyed those 3 nights at Hotel Carmin. After some delays leaving Paris, the owners were massively helpful and made sure that, despite the fact reception is not 24 hours, I could get to my room without trouble. My (very late) arrival was no issue, got to my room as instructed and was pleasantly surprised at how big and clean it all was. The hoetl is also really quiet, despite a central location and brilliant if you need to use the tramways. Breakfast were nice and fresh, with a friendly owner to boot. Really nice stay, it was rated highly by so many others and as often the case there is a good reason for it, it's a nice place!

This is a terrific hotel. Le Havre not the loveliest of towns at first sight, but the hotel is an unexpected delight. Welcome, room, advice about dinner, breakfast especially, all impeccable. The owners take a real pride in the job, and the result is the best hotel, regardless of class, that we've been to in a long time. Pity we'd booked the return for the next day...
