The room was large and so white (and blue) that it shone. Very nice shower, although we did not discover the water temperature regulating mechanism. An especially helpful and nice host and very good,central location in Caen.

Room Tip: the back seems better. It is on a second and third floors (possibly fourth too).

A one night stay en route back to Uk right in the centre of the main shopping area. Bit tricky to find and with parking about 200m away the entrance leads you up to the first floor reception with rooms above that on two more floors . With no lift this could be a problem for some but very helpful staff to carry your bag if you need it . Small but very clean new room, ok for a night. Very good location for the town sites. Hope the owners do well as very helpful.. just take into account small room and lots of stairs!

Thank you.
You can park in the street of the hotel (for free from 7pm to 09am). There is undergound parking Idigo Place de la républiique at 50m (5€ the night / 11€ for 24h with the hotel). We propose superior double room with a sofa for a more confortable stay but you select the standard and economic double room. Zoé and Mathieu.

We stayed with Zoe and Matthieu as a group of 16 on a cycling weekend.
The hotel is extremely comfortable, each room recently decorated to a high standard and with excellent en-suite facilities.

Matthieu is an exceptional host, providing the use of his own garage for storage of bikes and advice of local routes. He even went above and beyond in confirming our restaurant bookings for the evening to ensure the trip ran smoothly.

The breakfast offering is excellent, with home made youghurt and cake a must try as well as locally sourced apple juice and excellent pastries.

Overall, it was the perfect base for our group trip, but equally it would suit long weekend away with your significant other.

This small hotel is a real gem situated within easy reach of all Caen's amenities and ideal if you want to take the DDay tour, which the hosts booked for us in advance, though be warned you need to allocate at least half an hour to pick up the tour including a short bus ride (bus ticket provided by the hotel). The rooms though on the small side are extremely clean and minimalist and still comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and reasonably priced. The hosts are extremely helpful with all sorts of information and advice, we couldn't have chosen a better hotel and if we return to Caen will make a point of staying again.

My friend and I chose to go to Normandy without a car so wanted to see as much as we could via public transportation. The hotel owners were better than a tourist office in helping us. Our room was very serviceable and, yes, we did have to climb stairs to reach the hotel and room but that was part of the hotel's charm. The room was newly redecorated and very clean. The hotel is very well located for walking around Caen.

Room Tip: Choose a room that doesn't face the street
