The Mercure Rouen Cathedral is ideally situated in the old quarter of Rouen. Our room, a large suite with a king size bed, had a beautiful view of the cathedral. We spent 4 nights and there was plenty to do. It was a pleasurable experience simply walking through the many winding streets (ask for a map from the hotel staff). The old quarter is extensive and wonderful – and so unlike North America – one feels that one is walking through history of hundreds of years in Rouen. There are plenty of great places to dine – and some grocery stores as well.
We added the breakfast option and it was a good move as the choices were plentiful and delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked fine.
A couple of things to note
- It was noisy on Friday and Saturday night – but this is to be expected – one is in the old quarter and there are plenty of revellers (we could have chosen a hotel further out, but it would certainly not have had the same feeling as being in the old quarter)
- there was a rather large picture of Guy de Maupassant above the bed which seemed unnecessary and not particularly romantic (his large moustache bore a resemblance to Joseph Stalin)
- the carpet in our room had stains on it
But – if returning to Rouen we would definitely select this hotel.
