    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

  • 4.0.Fair

    La Fontaine Caen Centre  (Mathieu and Zoe) sent us an email after our stay and offered a refund if we would not write any reviews about our experience with them and the La Fontaine Hotel.  If this is common practice, then it would help explain how they have received so many good reviews. Unfortunately, our experience was not so great. We had to cancel our first night stay with them because a rail strike prevented us from arriving on schedule. We notified the hotel the day before our reservation by text, email, and phone that we had to cancel our room for one night due to the strike.  We offered to pay any service fee but asked for a refund even if only partial.  Mathieu told us he rented our room when we cancelled our reservation but could not issue a refund because it was not booked though him and it was past the cancellation period. So he actually received double payment for our room.  The hotel itself is rated at 2 stars, which in some ways seems generous. It is very basic with small, dormitory type rooms and no AC (they do have small fans upon request). No lift - we had more that 70 steps to our room.  We did not accept their “bribe” (which indicates he could have refunded our money) and paid in full for 2 nights but only stayed one night.  Very disappointing experience at La Fontaine Caen Centre.

    I liked everything!!! The hotel is beautiful, peaceful, clean... the view to the garden is great... it is really good place to get a rest. The person who received us, is really great, he make us feel like home, he gave us a really good advice to go around and had the time and patience to explained to us everything. I really recommend this place, it was perfect!

    Bill, from canada

    This is a budget hotel at 4 star prices, web site advertised free parking but we found out only after 7 PM, owner thought it was amusing when I enquired about the advertised free parking. If you want to see sights of Caen in the daytime you have to keep returning to put money in the parking meter. Average breakfast, good coffee, no eggs, croissants were under cooked. Room was stifling hot and the the street noise was annoyin.

    V central and welcoming hotel

    Lovely stylish hotel at a good price. Quibbles? Breakfast a bit expensive for a family (€30 for a family of 4); bathroom could do with some hooks for clothes and a shelf for products in the shower. A further shelf in the bathroom that was not over the toilet would be great! Still, v nice, welcoming place, very very central. We enjoyed and would return.
