This hotel is in central Caen and is in the same building as the Mercure - the hotels are linked by a ground-floor corridor. They also share an underground car park, 12 euros for 24 hours. Currently the Ibis reception is closed, and there are signs directing you to check in at the Mercure reception, which we did without any problems. We paid for the car parking and the taxe de sejour upfront, so it meant we could use the express check-out when we left. Back in the Ibis, our room was very compact but fine for a short stay. Room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable.
Breakfast was in the Mercure and a full buffet was on offer, with hand sanitiser at the door, face masks worn when not actually sitting at a table, and 1 metre social distancing, although the social distancing didn't really happen. I was pleasantly surprised to see a full buffet given the current restrictions, good to see a bit of normality.
The hotel is very well-located, near shops, cafes, restaurants and the castle & museums.More
