Excellent Location and great stay! 4 Stars
Excellent hotel, in the middle of the city Centre. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, banks, and local attractions. Owner operator hotel, that was very attentive and thoughtful. Considerations before booking: No lift/elevator for people with limited mobility. Minimum of two flights of stairs until reception desk. Total of four flights of stairs to the top floor. We didn’t have an issue with the stairs. Tips: We used Uber to World War II museum. There are limited amount of Ubers so check the queue on Uber app. Taxis are also available but more costly. Lite continental breakfast available for purchase no hot food except for coffee, tea, and hot coco. There are many other offerings walking distance, from the hotel such as, bakeries/ pastry shops. D-Day Beaches: A better option to visit the D-Day beaches and landmarks is to stay in Caen and drive into these areas. We did not rent a car, and decided to take a Uber for $30-42 to the location and taxi back to Caen (because of limited Ubers by the beaches). The drivers were super helpful, and some are like tour guides, such a bonus and worth the trip! There are hotels closer, Bayeux, BUT the a significant decrease in quality and comfort. We stayed in Bayeux and will not make the same mistake on a future trips - which had high marks but unfortunately the Bayeux “hotel” was disappointing. Stay in La Fontaine Hotel. Bayeux itself is a beautiful town to visit for half a day. I really loved Caen & this hotel
