    Superb

    The hotel is located very close to the shopping area and the main tourist sites, although a bit far from the railway station (20-25-minute walk). Breakfast is nice, and free wifi and a public computer in the lobby are helpful. The room had a separate bedroom with a door and a small hallway.

    Fabulous

    I like the Hotel staff, they were very helpful and made my stay much more relaxed. It is difficult when you travel to a foreign country. The ladies were extremely nice and answered all of my questions.

    It was difficult to find the hotel and I was not sure where to park. I should have called the hotel prior to arrival. The directions on the Internet were wrong. It said hotel would be on the right but the hotel is on the left.

    Very good

    The hotel is well situated for dining out at restaurants and access to major roads round Caen is good. Most staff were friendly and helpful.

    There were large coach parties present during most of our stay and the hotel was clearly unable to handle these groups at breakfast while also catering for couples or small groups like ours (6). Two staff at breakfast could not clear tables and reset them quickly enough and on all four mornings the breakfast room ran out of bread. This problem was solved by staff leaving the breakfast room to buy bread at a nearby bakery. The hotel offers car parking at € 8.40 per night, but there are only eight bays, all involving double parking, at least one of which was taken up by a car belonging to staff. The hotel staff insisted on taking my car keys overnight, so that they could move my car as necessary. I found this unsatisfactory. Our friends, who had booked a parking bay, were unable to use it, as their vehicle (a Suzuki Grand Vitara) was too tall for the garage; but there had been no prior notification of this problem. They were obliged to seek overnight parking elsewhere, which was more expensive. In some parts of the garage it was impossible to raise the rear door of my estate car without hitting the roof. On one night the supposedly continuously manned reception desk was left unmanned and the door locked at 2300. I was obliged to wait outside 15 minutes for the receptionist to reappear and received no apology on her return. The same member of staff was also rude to one of my friends, although in fairness it was clear that the senior staff were taking steps to deal with this problem through further training. The safe in our room was not fastened to any surface and was light enough to carry away!

    Very good

    Staff were very pleasant and helpful at all times and spoke good English. Although the room was a little small, it was more than adequate for sleep and, most of all, was quiet.

    I was concerned by the comments on this website about finding the hotel by car. My SatNav took me to the door. The underground carpark is small and suitable really only for small cars. There is a public car park about 2 minutes walk away.

    Great location and one of the better hotels in the area after a search on internet.

    Breakfast was nothing special.

    The location, and the reception staff went beyond their duties to help us during the strike action.

    the constant helpfulness and charm of all the staff - they were always there to help. in fact we arrived one day early so had 4 nights and they were able to accommodate us - paid extra and had a deluxe room which was great.

    Great breakfast buffet. All French speaking staff were extremely helpful with all my needs - booking taxis, bus info, tourist information. Nice old building right in the Caen city center.

    Fabulous

    Hotel staff were excellent and very helpful. Room was clean and spacious enough for a 2 night stay. The breakfast was extremely good so no idea why people have complained previously. I notice that other reviewers have complained about the elevator. It may not be the speediest but suggest there are more important things in life to worry about, especially if you are con holiday! Centrally located and handy for all of Caen's attractions. We found parking (in the hotel car park) was ok but it is limited and a little bit tight.

    If you are arriving by car then the directions on the web site are not the best and it is a bit of a pain to get to. Follow the brown-bordered signs in the city for the 'Moderne'.

    Excellent hotel. Very helpful staff at reception. Overall a good experience.

    My only criticism is the difficulty of access by car as the "bus only" road in front of the hotel made access problematic. We eventually found the entrance by parking the car and walking. The helpful staff then explained that we could use the bus lane for limited access parking on the pavement whilst we unloaded our bags.

    nice clean large room down town Caen; very friendly staff and proper breakfast.

    too bad they do not have a restaurant but it is downtown Caen...

    I felt like we had been completely ripped off - at 220 euros for a room for one night only in this hotel was not value for money and ended our holiday on a bad note. I was expected a really nice room for this amount and a nicer hotel- we paid 100 euros on our way down to our holiday destination in a far nicer room and far nicer hotel.the photos on the website are not true to life.

    Located right in the middle of the downtown historic area

    The rudeness of some of the guests from Germany to the staff. The staff handled it very professionally, though.
