I have done a review previously for this hotel. Unfortunately I thought I was reviewing a different hotel. The hotel is in a central location, on a side street.

I cannot praise Mattieu enough for the hard work and attention he gave to our Swindon party of 17 with an age range of 22 to 85.

Very pleased to have chosen this small family hotel. Mathieu is a very thoughtful and charming host, our large room was stylish, well appointed and very comfortable. The hotel has only 10 rooms so does not have technology such as a lift, but has excellent wifi technology. The location is central but quiet. I would recommend it without hesitation -... More

Located in the centre of Caen next to the pedestrian area. Public parking 200m from Hotel. Reception on first- rooms on second to fourth floor, no elevator. Rooms are clean but small, bathroom very small with no hooks to hang damp towels. Beds OK but with approx. 80cm rather narrow. Very friendly receptionist.
