Being a two adult, one child family, we booked a triple room for one night in August on our way back to Britain from Brittany. The staff were friendly and helpful, giving detailed information about the area and adding hard boiled eggs to the breakfast buffet specially for me as I am gluten free. The room was clean, the beds... More

Located a short drive or a bus ride from Caen city centre, this charming budget hotel exceeded expectations. Free on site parking, good wifi throughout premises, well appointed rooms and excellent, well priced, meals in the large restaurant. Happy to recommend this hotel.

We found ourselves stuck across the road from this hotel after an unfortunate car malfunction. They couldn't have been more helpful - allowing us to store our bags at the last minute and generally making sure we could relax and concentrate on looking after our little boy. We had dinner in the restaurant - excellent food at very reasonable prices.... More

Me and my 3 friends arrived in Caen and looked online for the nearest cheapest hotels. Crocus had a nice offer, 20€ person/nights. The beds were absolutely nice and clean. Bathroom nice. We stayed in the group room and for us it was everything we searched for, keep in mind we didn't ask for much cause we were passing through.... More

Very neat and convenient hotel having arrived at Ouistreham. Rooms a bit shabby but due for an overhaul, we hear. Short walk to the Museum and food outlets nearby. We have stayed here about half a dozen times now and it's always a pleasure.

We were there with a group for a cycling holiday. We knew that it was a 2 star accomodation so we did not expect much. The room was small and simple, no airco and with a small bath in the bathroom you had to take a shower in the bathtub wich was very difficult for tall people. But everuthing was... More

This was our first visit to Europe, and we chose this hotel specifically for the air-conditioning. We were travelling with three families, and we were anticipating extremely hot weather and wanted to find a hotel where we could all be comfortable. This hotel was advertised as having air-conditioning, but none of our three rooms had any for the three nights... More

We stayed there for one night. It is located close to the Mémorial de Caen, an impressive place to visit. This also means, that it is located off the city center of Caen.
