We stayed at this hotel as a group. On the whole, the staff were very welcoming and cheery. The included breakfast was basic but not lacking. The coffee was good. The location is the strongest point as it is next to the train station, very convenient. Unfortunately our room was not the cleanest. The sticky floor indicated an unrised floor. Highly unpleasant to walk around with anything but shoes on. My socks turned black within minutes. The bathroom was a strange cubical - shower and toilet together. It made for slightly uncomfortable washes (for taller people), and there's nothing you can do to prevent the floor by the toilet from being wet. Having more towels would have be nice, we only had 1 each. On the whole it served its purpose for 2 nights as we passed through the town.…
Room was hot with no a/c or fan, TV didn't work, neon light shining through the window, dodgy neighbourhood, only one poorly located plug, smelt of smoke, and so on..... Yes this is a budget ibis but unless you are desperate to sleep outside the train station you should avoid. There are other ibis budgets in caen and lots of other choices. About the only plus was the secure parking (good for my motorbike, but would probably only fit 2 or 3 cars max).
Friendly, helpful reception. Comfortable room, very convenient location. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would be nice. Had to run off a huge amount of cold water in the shower before it became hot - I suppose I was the first person in the hotel up.
A comfortable place for a 2 night stay whilst visiting the Normandy Battlefields but the site lacked any parking facilities which had to be found by luck on the street and paid for before 6 pm and after 9 am. Also transfer of luggage from car to hotel felt insecure due to the number of dubious characters loitering outside the hotel. A long walk from hotel to restaurants the other side of the Gare. I cannot really recommend this hotel.
Positives: - Train and tram stations next to hotel - Cheap, plentiful breakfast - Generally clean - Cheap rate - Helpful manager Negatives - The Accor website indicates the hotel has parking. In the small-print it says 'paid public parking'. The reality is street parking on a meter - I don't think that is suitable for hotel parking and I think Accor is being deliberately misleadingly. - The desk staff couldn't find my reservation. When i returned from my car with more details I was then made to queue again! Eventually manager found reservation. Family sat in car fir long period waiting. - The area is quite rough. We saw one guy pass out in the street! (someone helped him). I don't think the attitude of hotel in responses to other reviews is acceptable - the hotel should keep the entrance to the hotel clear of any people hanging around. - The towels provided were small, stained and thread-bare…
