By name, by nature. This hotel is right by the centre, two minutes from Caen Castle, five from all the centre and around 15 minutes from the train station (on foot). Very well placed. So far so good, then the little things kick in.

The bathroom is tiny. I mean really tiny. Getting dried after a shower becomes a challenge by itself.

The language barrier with one (out of three) of the proprietors/doorpeople. Two speak English, one doesn't. they are all on seperately - so at times there is no English speaking. Not a problem personally, but it could be for some (especially with some of the later issues).

Next up, security. Being a central area, it was in a very slightly iffy area. No real problem. But there are a few little things that make you uneasy. There is no safe in the rooms or in the hotel. The stopping of intruders is that anytime anyone enters the hotel a bell rings and the proprietors try and poke their heads around the corner in time to make sure you are a resident. If they missed you, so be it (and I made sure they missed me on numerous occasions). Just a little worrying when you are carrying large amounts of holiday money.

Finally, the car parking. On booking.com it states that parking is available outside the hotel for E4.00 per say. This is a bit fantasy land. Firstly, there is parking, but it is always full. By chance alone we managed to get a space on arrival (someone pulled off just as we arrived). This parking was E2.00 for one and a half hours, and you could not get any more than this without returning every hour and a half. In reality there is no long stay car parking at the hotel. You have to park at the castle car park at E8.00 per day*, a few minutes away (once you find the thing in the one way system).

This could improve as a hotel with a couple of additions: a hotel safe, directions to the long stay car park around the corner and a minibar/fridge would be top of my list. At the moment though, it is nothing special, but as cheap as you are going to get for where it is.

*The long stay car park does not take English credit cards and requires payment in coins. Can be problematical when it is E24.00 in total.
