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 -...

Located in the centre of Caen next to the pedestrian area. Public parking 200m from Hotel. Reception on first- rooms on second to fourth floor, no elevator. Rooms are clean but small, bathroom very small with no hooks to hang damp towels. Beds OK but with approx. 80cm rather narrow. Very friendly receptionist.

Stayed here in June 2016. Thank you for the great service! The room was fantastic - very comfortable, clean, modern and with style.
