Tucked away among the narrow streets of Rouen we missed the hotel twice before finding it. Parking is provided and very useful. Inside is a modern hotel with friendly staff. We were lucky to get a top floor room and it was great to look over roof tops. Simple mod cons were provided, kettle, fridge, wifi, tv and was perfect for our one night stay. The cathedral is just two minutes from the hotel entrance and perfect to explore the narrow shopping streets. There's a boulangerie on the opposite corner that sells some very good bread if you wanted an alternative breakfast.
Busy hotel near to local attractions. Room was very spacious with all facilities required including fridge, microwave, shower and bath. underground car park had to be carefully negotiated as it was very tight for turning and parking. Would recommend to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful city.
The Hotel de Bourgtheroulde gets an A from us. Its location in the very heart of Rouen made for a great experience. The main street of the old city with its major attractions was literally at the corner. The sophisticated old building, with its totally pristine and modern interior, gave us both charm and comfort. There were lots of restaurants nearby, and even a Monoprix, where we picked up some snack/fruit supplies. There were valet parking, exercise and spa facilities, and a pool. Because we were only there for one night, and wanted to take maximum time for history, we did not use the spa. Although a little more expensive than some hotels, the experience and convenience were worth it for us. We would definitely stay there if we are in Rouen again.
Room and bed fine/comfortable. Shower-head floppy, inconvenient to use. Staff cooperatively directed me to their sister business for a late dinner at the Casino. I don't know, but fear that they defrosted my steak in a microwave, insufficiently before cooking and the following day I had the worst stomach upset of my life, outside of Africa
"Central hotel near Cathedral and main shopping str"
This hotel is adequate for a one night stopover with a reasonable price that includes breakfast (basic buffet style). It is very central so expect to see a lot of people around. Warning - not much open in Rouen on Sunday.
Parking is in a Pay & Display car park nearby which is free after 7.00 pm and on Sundays.
We were in Rouen to see the Son et Lumiere show at the Cathedral but, without any explanation, it was cancelled! The system seemed to have failed but there was no announcement in spite of a crowd of thousands who eventually drifted away.
The Forges Hotel is a modern building set on the edge of large grounds, which include a lake-side bar, band-stand and summer lounges, as well as facilities for a range of sports. On the other side of the hotel, but part of the same large complex, is a casino which we were not interested in. Our room was large and very well appointed. So too was the bathroom. We appreciated the tea/coffee making facilities and the toiletries. There is a heated indoor pool and a fitness room for guests to use. There is a secure carpark, again included in the room price. There is also free internet access at a business corner, as well as wifi. All-in-all, a beautiful, spacious room in a hotel which offers all the little extras that you normally only find in more expensive hotels. And in an attractive setting in a "ville fleurie".
