The hotel is situated just a few meters from the cathedral, the old city center and its antique shops. The Comfort Hotel is and ideal stop over for both vacation and business travels. The exceptional location has an added advantage of quietness. Breakfast available at 12EUR per person, subject to change. Required extra bedding is free for one child 12 or under when sharing with two parents/grandparents - subject to availability of suitable rooms.
The personnel attention
maybe the fact that there is no elevator or continental breakfast included:
Split site,exceptionally cramped room, no lift
The hotel promises a sight either to river or to Rouen cathedral. We saw a spire of the chatedral from our window but actualy it was rather unpleasant sight to a courtyard with garages.
I know Latvian, English, German, Italian, Norwegian and Russian and a little bit French. A man at the reception during our check in clear English said that he did not speak English and requested us to speak with him in French or in any other language he knew. It was clear French snobbery with which we came accross in many cities of Bretagne and Normandy. French is very nice language but after the holidays in France I do not want to learn it at all. It seems to me that a hotel is for clients but not vice versa.
no parking facilities, close to a young persons area, street noisy until late
Great view of the cathedral from bedroom!
