My fiancee and I stayed here for a night a couple of days ago - we were welcomed by the owner, who offered to give us some maps of the area, recommended some restaurants and carried our bags upstairs for us! We were on the third (topmost) floor, which was quite a trek up the stairs as there's no lift,...

Really nice, centrally located hotel run by Zoe, Mathieu and Romeo. The hotel is in the centre of Caen, but in a quiet street - a great location for a city break.

Comfortable and quiet, it's in the middle of the city, just 3-4 blocks from the castle and a nice walking mall / area with good restaurants. Great place to base for Normandy because of access to the Normandy Museum which is a good place to start your exploration, and because of the non-stop train service (2 hours) to Paris Gare...

Thank you very much ebucka. The hotel completely renoved is situated in the city center, in a quiet street with parking, at walking distance to shops and restaurants. Also we are at the center of Normandy in order to go to landing beaches, Mont Saint-Michel, Honfleur / Etretat, between Britanny and Paris. Zoé and Mathieu

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,...

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.
