8/10 Very good

Charming room
Overall a pleasant experience. The room is spacious and has a nice character. The location is great, just few steps from the pedestrian city centre area. Overall the room was clean but not spotless clean ( I made the mistake to put my bag over the wardrobe…. And lots of dust came down). In general I would say great value for money

The hotel is an older, interesting property in a good part of the city. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was great. The owner, Isabella, was lovely and watched over our every need. We would highly recommend this hotel.

8/10 Very good

Lovely location
Very convenient for the centre of Caen and easy to find with a map. Lovely location near the chateau and a nice church, which is just visible from the quaint court yard outside some of the ground floor rooms and enclosed within the hotel. Medieval building, so lots of character. Breakfast was an additional cost to the price of the room. Our family room was adequate and had a TV and the beds were comfy.
