A group of 5 of us stayed here for a couple nights. The room was basic with ensuite shower/toilet and sink in room. Bedding was comfortable and clean. Only downside was external noise on weekend being across from station and restaurants. Good value.

the room was very tidy and great location. staff were extremely friendly and helpful, we really appreciated it when we were stuck for somewhere to stay. definitely recommend for a low cost stay close to the station - great as we visited Mont St Michel for the day so we didn't need anything advanced in terms of a room.

Situated just opposite the railway and bus station, this hotel is ideal for travelling around and visiting the surrounding area. It is also within about 15 minutes' walk of Caen town centre and there is a brand new shopping arcade with shops, cafes, restaurants and a supermarket, behind the station. Rooms are typical of a standard Ibis Budget, basic but... More

Best budget hotel. Friendly staff, great-value breakfast, right opposite the Gare du Caen, and really really clean! The towels are changed everyday, the bathroom is better than the one I have at home, and bins are emptied.

We booked two nights and only stayed one. Accommodation is extremely Basic. Young groups of Turks hang outside with many cars stopping by, very shifty. Felt unsafe with groups of men hanging about outside. Room noisy because of cars, trams, people. No air conditioning, beds get in way of bathroom door. Not recommended for families, only hardened backpackers. Stay in... More

Yes, it wasn't expensive, the staff were very helpful and it was clean BUT the mattress was VERY hard, only one pillow per person, if you have a third bed this is above the double and you have to climb the ladder to make the bed yourself. The worst thing is that rooms at the back overlook a cafe and... More

Good clean hotel we stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the D day beaches. Great location parking can be a problem as the hotel doesn't have a car park. Only one draw back there was no plug for the sink. Easy access to the town centre as there is a tram stop opposite.

We stayed here for one evening and chose the location because of its proximity to the train station. This hotel was good value, and we were impressed with the cleanliness and modern feel of our room. Unfortunately, both my husband and myself found the bed so uncomfortable that we had difficulty sleeping. We have slept on many different beds during... More

“Rooms at back are quieter. Best to take a room with 3 beds, storage space being limited and the third bed is useful for keeping items out.”
