Excellent in all aspects: located in the old center of the city, close to everything, first class attention of Mathieu and his wife (hotel owners), very new rooms and in beautiful style and great breakfast. Mathieu gave a very special attention to us, speaking Spanish and offering all to make our stay special. Muchas gracias por todo, Mathieu y Zoé!!!!

I've noticed that despite France's economic challenges, young entrepreneurs are starting businesses and courageously trying to make a living. La Fontaine seems to be a result of such efforts. We stayed here over a surprisingly spring like weekend in February. There is no lift and we were on the 3rd floor. The room was quite small, but all very clean,...

This hotel is an extraordinary place to stay because it is at the same time likeabely basic and very stylish, with a very reliable modern taste that makes you feel at home immediately.

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. You access via buzzer which you are then given the code for. We arrived and we had a nice welcome and shown to our room. It was not large but had...

Matthieu and his wife were incredible hosts. My wife and I came to visit Caen with no agenda and he helped us with a plan to explore this charming city. The location of the hotel is great to see some of the sites in Caen, shopping, dining and close to transportation. The rooms were very clean, bright, and perfect for...

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. The hotel is excellent value and all of the rooms are immaculate with superb shower. As a base it was perfect for us and Caen is a beautiful town in its own right....

We stayed here on the last night of our trip in preparation for the return ferry from Caen. We expected a basic hotel but we're very pleasantly surprised.

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 -...
