This was one of the last rooms available since we were visiting at a very busy season. We were in room 16 on the 4th floor. The room was very small but very clean. The bathroom was divided into 2 separate areas. The toilet was in one area, and the sink/shower was across the room. The shower was so tiny that when I turned around I hit the temperature dial and scalded myself. It does have a “lift”, but it is also tiny. The continental breakfast was nice but extra. The hotel staff did not speak much English, but were especially nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, they were doing road work and the roads to the hotel were blocked off. We had to park in a pay lot and roll our luggage to the hotel. Once settled, the hotel was very close to many nice restaurants.

Tucked away a bit with no onsite parking (although we managed to get our motorbikes parked by the rear entrance), public parking 250 metres away.
Clean comfortable room but breakfast was very very basic even by French standards and not value for money.

Hello,
We thank you for taking the time to leave us your opinion following your stay.
I think that if you came back from the back entrance is that we had reserved a parking space especially for you. It is actually difficult to have a large private car park when we are a city hotel, however there is a lot of public parking all around the hotel.
We thank you for your pleasant comment on the room.
The breakfast we propose is a "continental" breakfast composed exclusively of sweet products.
We thank you for having stayed with us and hope to see you again very soon during a future stay on Caen.
Very cordially.
Chloe.

The only thing I liked was the location, since it is near the castle and the restaurants area. However, it is located on a wide avenue with lots of traffic (cars, a tram that runs till 11 pm and starts at 5 am) and drunk people noise until 3 in the morning.
In general it was a horrible experience. We do not know if it is because we had an issue with the hotel with the reservation and that's why they gave us the worst room (number 3) or if they are all equally bad.
When you walk into the room, you are hit by a disgusting smell, maybe coming from the dirty-looking carpet. The bathroom is ancient, with mould on the wall of the shower and paint peeling off. As mentioned earlier, this room located on the first floor, just above reception, overlooks a noisy avenue and what with the noise and the smell (it does not have air conditioning), you need to have the window open what makes it impossible to get a decent rest. I really do not understand the positive comments with which it is rated.
As to the problem I had with the reservation, basically, the day before going we made a non-refundable reservation on a hotel portal and indicated that we needed parking for our car (the hotel description said they had parking but it was necessary to confirm). To cut a long story short, they only have 3 parking spaces in an open courtyard and these 3 spaces (not surprisingly) were already booked, we asked them to cancel so that we could find another hotel with parking but the Manager (Marie) refused. She was adamant that the reservation was non-refundable - this is true, but some good will would have been appreciated. Forget it! They are only interested in your money. And they do not seem to invest it in improving the rooms. A very disappointing experience. Avoid it if you can.

Nous sommes un hôtel de centre ville il est donc normal que celui-ci soit bruyant, pour un peu plus de calme il aurait été plus judicieux de s'orienter vers un hôtel en périphérie. Nous avons acheté l'hôtel il y a deux ans et rénovons les chambres petit à petit, il n'y a malheuresement que les chambres du 1 er étage et celles du deuxième qui ne sont pour l'instant pas rénovées. Nous sommes désolé que vous n'aillez pas eu une de celle rénovée. Toutes nos chambres sont nettoyées tous les jours par nos femmes de chambre qui se donnent du mal pour faire en sorte que tout soit parfait pour nos clients. Nous disposons effectivement d'un parking qui est réservable à l'avance " sous réserve de place ", vous avez opté pour une offre non remboursable, comme celle ci l'indique elle n'est pas remboursable, vous auriez du opter pour une autre offre si vous n'étiez pas sur de pouvoir bénéficier du parking et pour pouvoir ensuite l'annuler. Vous trouverez rarement un hôtel de centre ville disposant d'un parking privé, ceux indiqués sur les sites font référence en général au stationnement public.
Nous apprécions vos commentaires et prenons en notre ceux négatifs pour améliorer notre hôtel chaque jour.

This hotel deserves more than two stars. Newly refurbished rooms, clean, friendly staff and good breakfast. We had a family room for 4 persons. Very nice. Free internet. Very close to the Caen castle and a nice restaurant street. Good prices.

Located just down the hill from the Chateau here in Caen and less one half a block away from the tram stop “St.-Pierre,” where the A and the B take one to and from the gare, or main train station, the two star rating is perhaps deceptive. True, the rooms are small, but each (on the fourth floor where I was staying) had its own bathroom (without an array of amenities, of course), rather than a shared facility down the hall. There was a flat screen TV (limited channel selection), land-line telephone, and free, reliable internet service. My room was smoke-free and faced the back so it had less ambient noise. There is no mini-bar and no room service and breakfast is extra, but is it within walking distance of any number of restaurants in almost every conceivable price range. During the time of my stay, this establishment was fully booked which I take to be a sign of just how popular and nice this place really is.
