    There was a nice enclosed courtyard.

    We arrived at 1 hoping to drop off luggage and begin sightseeing. The door was locked. We used the intercom as instructed. We were greeted by a gruff response telling us to call on the phone. We had no service. We repeated the intercom two more times with the same result. We were frustated. The manager told my daughter to calm down. Finally, we borrowed a phone, were buzzed in, told to take our key, and put our luggage upstairs in the unmade room. We didn't see a single staff person at the desk until we checked out the following day. About the previous day, the manager told us that he couldn't open the door for "just anybody". He didn't walk down the stairs to find out. No hospitality here. The room was barely adequate with a tiny bathroom badly in need of updating.

    Having been given small room to begin with within five minutes they gave us a bigger room which was spacious and lovely. The hotel is in such a good location for everything. So near lovely bars and restaurants. Good shopping area. Will return if in Caen again from UK. Thank you.

    We did not eat breakfast there -so cannot give review. Staff did respond to e-mail(in a timely manner ) regarding late arrival -with full instructions to allow access to building . Overall -its ok if all you want is a bed -not recommended for families or people looking for anything beyond the basics

    Room was a lot smaller than I thought it would be .Water pressure in shower was very low . No air conditioning (which is what I knew ),but no air circulation in room -even with windows open -. Noisy street when bars close - Parking was a problem (which was stated on website -so no surprise ) We did not eat breakfast there -so cannot give review. Overall -its ok if all you want is a bed -not recommended for families or people looking for anything beyond the basics
