Reviewed August 23, 2013

Great location, very cosy. XVIII century building, adapted. Staff was very gentil. You can book the parking. Very charming room, nice space, very clean. Breakfast was very good, with local cheeses. The elevator is very tiny and the furniture is antique. Very nice taste, but if you look for modern confort, maybe this is not the place. Very nice view with double windows.

The Hotel Dandy has a good position for visiting Rouen's main tourist attractions and is walking distance from the station. The hotel is very clean and the rooms simply furnished but perfectly adequate for a short stay in what is a good value hotel. The staff are polite and helpful and have reasonably good English for international visitors. The neighbourhood is slightly noisy. A good supermarket is very close by, as well as a range of cafes and shops. Would recommend.

We were lucky to get a room at all in Rouen, as they had just finished their Armada festival, and everywhere was still booked out, but a sudden vacancy appeared on this site and at a discounted price, no doubt due to the extraordinary rain which was turning people away.
It's our third stay in Rouen in 3 different hotels so we hoped for a quiet location.
We knew this hotel was in a lively street but we couldn't believe how quiet it is.
The reception is staffed until 10pm but a code lets you in later. The rooms are well furnished with comfy bed, antique dresser and side tables a built-in wardrobe and a good sized bathroom with bidet and shower over bath. A fridge and coffee machine and hairdryer and large flat screen tv makes for a good stay.
Our room had two windows, but I reckon it would get hot in the summer months.
We didnt try breakfast. Wifi is fast and free, and there are lots of power points.
I likened Hotel Dandy to a very good 2 star or reasonable 3 star place and I would stay here again if the price was right.

This hotel is well located, in a pedestrian street, and just 3 minutes from one of the main place in the old town. The river Seine is nearby, too. The building is from the 19th century, but has had a lot of work done on it. Rooms are small but comfy, all nicely decorated. The 4th floor is under the roof, and the ceiling is lower, but the view is nicer.
The staff was very nice, helpful and dedicated. They suggested great restaurants. There was a temporary problem with the (free) wifi, but it was quickly fixed.

We chose this hotel for price and location. Arrived by cab but were getting a car. Parking in nearby underground garage for reasonable price (11 Euros for 24 hours). We knew about parking arrangements before arriving. Hotel is clean, well furnished. Our bed was very comfy. Bathroom slightly dated but everything functioned just fine. Our room faced the front - a pedestrian friendly street with half timbered buildings, very convenient to Vieux Marche, restaurants, and sights. I initially thought the rooms might be noisy but we never heard a sound at night so either nearby guests were very quiet or the soundproofing was better than I thought. The rooms don't have individual heat control. A very small soap bar was provided at the sink, bath gel for the shower. Water was hot enough, water pressure fair. There was a hair dryer. There is an annex with additional rooms. We didn't see them. Breakfast was 13 Euros and was OK, canned fruit cup, cold hard boiled eggs, pastry, croissants, breads, yogurt. It's served in a lovely dining room behind reception. The elevator is very tiny - one suitcase at a time fits, but at least you don't have to carry them up the stairs. Vincent, the manager, there most evenings, was very pleasant. He was very helpful with restaurant suggestions, directions, etc. The day reception man was not so pleasant, never a smile or greeting, not too helpful. I was disappointed to see that there was a 1 Euro 50 charge for using the in room coffee machine. When I asked for milk to go with the coffee from this machine, I was told "no". Would I stay here again - absolutely. The quirky little problems were worth the great location and good night's sleep.

My wife and daughter stayed at this hotel on a short sight-seeing trip to Rouen and environs in May. They found it very good value for their needs. Hotel has been renovated in excellent taste. They particularly admired the gilt and mirror Louis XV-style furniture. Bed very comfortable. Great view from their room on the top floor, though the sloping roof/ceiling might not suit very tall people. Breakfasts first rate. Staff most welcoming and friendly. Location perfect for exploring town and restaurants. . Wi fi in eooms weak, but lobby worked well in lobby.

We took a punt on this hotel, as it looked quirky, but it turned out to be a bad bet. On the plus side, it is very central and has parking (don't try and park on the street in central Rouen - nightmare!). That's it though. Our room (in the annexe, always a bad sign) had not been refurbished, so had a rock-hard bed and a pink shell-shaped bathroom suite older than I am. The bed had a rubber sheet (so nice that they expect their guests to be incontinent) so a sweaty, uncomfortable night was had by all. To top it off, the walls are paper thin, so we were woken in the middle of the night by late-arriving guests in the next room. You could literally hear the zip on their suitcase through the wall, it was that bad. The receptionist was grumpy and unwelcoming, which didn't help matters. While fairly cheap, it wasn't cheap enough to justify staying there. I would never stay there again.
