The location of the hotel is very nice, just off one of the main squares in Rouen, and just 50 meters from the main tourist street.
I was satisfied with the room, and can agree with what other guests have written, that the beds were very comfortable
I also really liked the atmosphere of the hotel, and the theme it was kept in. As I was staying before Christmas, the staff had made a big effort to make it a nice and cosy place.
This was especially true for the breakfast, where the tables and the buffet itself was decorated really nice. I also enjoyed that the breakfast contained a lot of local and interesting products.
Finally I would also say that the gym in this hotel is really well-equipped, and especially if you take into account the size of the hotel again.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, and will stay here again if I am returning to Rouen!

Rouen is fabulous tho, with lots of good shopping, interesting restaurants and history everywhere you look. It is a great city for a 1-3 stopover.
