Late in the evening we arrived in Le Havre and went looking for a cheap hotel. In hind sight we were very glad that the Ibis budget hotel was full. We came across this hotel and were afraid that it would not be a cheap night’s stay but to our surprise we heard that it would cost 97 euro’s for a family room. My first reaction was: oh no our 2 teenagers have to sleep together on an awful small sofa bed but they assured us that there were 2 single beds for them and breakfast was free for them.
With parking fee’s (about 4.50) we were spending 10 euro’s more than the cost of the Ibis budget but this hotel was most probably about 10 times better, if not more!
The room was large and luxurious, some-thing that we do not come across when we stay in a family room. The beds of our teenagers was a sofa bed BUT they were 2 singles and though of course close together our son and daughter did not have the feeling that they were sleeping next to each other, the beds were comfortable and a good size.
Also the toilet is separate from the bathroom and there were 4 large bathtowels already in the room, so often we have to ask for 2 more towels when the room is being used for the 4 of us. So top marks for this room which is used for families.
Breakfast was good though the system they have to boil your own eggs does not work so well, we put in 2 eggs for about 5 minutes and they were nearly still raw. Parking is about 5 minutes walk away. I read that some-one mentioned ‘parking issues’ in the evening having to walk with the family from the parking garage to the hotel, I can understand that, but we checked in at the hotel while my husband parked the car.
