As expected with the novotel chain, this hotel was both modern and clean. The location was great if you needed to be near the train station in le havre. This hotel was literally across the street (i.e. you can see the hotel from the exit) and only need to cross one road of traffic to get to the hotel.
Rooms were nice, modern, and spacious with beautiful bathrooms, well appointed rooms. There was plenty of space, a small TV, computer desk, closet, etc. Free wifi was included in the room rate. Breakfast was not included but we did not try. The hotel also had a nice restaurant only open on weekdays, nothing on weekends. There was a xbox station for kids and also an imac for those who did not bring a computer able to access the internet at 20 min. intervals, you can relogin if no one is around.
We did not try the hotel food, but it appeared reasonable and not expensive. Near the hotel across a small pedestrian walkway and bridge was a new shopping complex which had bunch of shoppes and restaurants.
There a number of bus lines from train station to take you to the interesting
parts of le havre particularly if you are here for a short stay. If you are looking for a nice, clean, modern and convenient hotel to the train station. this is the place to stay.
we used this as a base to explore honfluer and etretat. i would suggest renting a car if you were to do this as we used buses and the infrequent schedule made these trips into full day escapades as the buses would only run a few times a day between the locations. there should be local car hire places nearby.
