Description

Caen is one of France's oldest university cities with lots of interesting things to see and do and it's a lovely place to visit at any time of year. The Ducal castle, or château, was built by William the Conqueror in the 11th century and you can get great views of the city from its ramparts which are the only original parts of the building that remain today. They house twoimpressive museums - the Musée des Beaux Arts which has a grand display of fine paintings and the Musée de Normandie where you can learn all about theregion's history. Other sites of interest include the Abbaye aux Hommes (also known as L'Abbaye de St Etienne), a fine example of Romanesque architecture that houses William the Conqueror's tomb and has beautiful cloistered gardens, and the Abbaye aux Dames, a Benedictine abbey for women founded by William's wife Mathilda. And for those interested in the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy, there is also the excellent Memorial museum on the city outskirts. Aside from its historical jewels Caen also has beautiful parks and gardens, excellent shopping and dining choices and two very good markets - Friday near the château and Sunday in the car park opposite the hotel. Next door to the Hotel Mercure, with which it shares a gym and a lovely bar lounge, the Ibis is in a lovely setting alongside the picturesque Port de Plaisance (yacht harbour) and is within walking distance of the city centre. Bedrooms have comfortable beds and a shower as opposed to a bath, and the brasserie next door (under separate management) offers a pleasant environment in which to dine. Additionally a buffet breakfast is available each morning and the underground parking is a welcome bonus in this busy city. Garage parking approx. 12€/night.

Reviews

Property
A very nice hotel - very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were excellent. Parking was a little expensive but very convenient. Rooms were perfectly adequate for our golf trip.

The accommodation we stayed at was in the centre of Caen and very easy to find. The hotel staff were helpful, polite and professional. Food was of the highest quality and was reasonably inexpensive. Our rooms were clean and spacious. There were a large number of other residents during our stay, but this did not dilute the attention we were afforded when required. We would certainly use Brittany Ferries to choose our accommodation again.

This hotel is well situated for all attractions. The rooms are ok but a little small but are accessible by a lift so ok for older people etc. Also, the receptionists are English speaking, which, in my case was an enormous help. Parking is available in the basement but a bit expensive at 10 euros a night. Overall a hotel well worth visiting.

Great location, comfortable rooms, welcoming staff who spoke English and lovely buffet breakfast in adjacent restaurant which also did evening meals with 15% discount for hotel guests. Very short stroll to centre of Caen and wide range of eateries. Large public car park opposite, free between 7pm and 9.30am. Great centre for touring the sites of Normandy.
