From arrival to departure I was looked after by the staff. Farouq the evening porter/receptionist was a gentleman and his work ethics was exemplary. My room was clean and the maid was super helpful.

Having a late arrival in Caen on Brittany Ferries we wanted a hotel to stay thr night. This hotel had great reviews and ticked all the right boxes. We were welcomed by a lovely man, who was helpful, polite and had a good sense of humour. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. We parked right outside the hotel which was an amazing bonus. We will definitely stay again when we take the Portsmouth to Caen crossing. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Well locked

Apart from the good position, I would have expected more cleanliness and more cordiality from the staff: we checked in with the clerk totally angry and complaining at his colleague, with no words of consideration for us, literally none. The room was ok but the floor was very dusty, as if no one had cleaned it; same for the shower where we found some leftover hairs from the previous guest.

Comfortable hotel opposite railway and coach stations

Friendly, helpful reception. Comfortable room, very convenient location. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would be nice. Had to run off a huge amount of cold water in the shower before it became hot - I suppose I was the first person in the hotel up.

Suitable option for spending the night in Caen. The hotel is within walking distance of the station. Friendly staff. Service, the rooms in the breakfast are traditional for ibis Budget. The hotel is suitable for transit travelers and those who need to stay in the city for several days.

Good on the inside

Philip W Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

Adequate Ibis Budget but spoilt by people hanging around outside hotel who should not be there. Same inside one night very noisy group inside with cigarette end on the floor. Hotel needs to be in a better art of town really

thank you for your comment We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel We are conveniently located 5 minutes from the train station and 15 minutes walk from the city center, and close to many restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. It is true that the district of the station of Caen is strongly animated in the evening. We are not responsible for the exterior nuisance of the hotel as well as the external environment. The responsibility lies with the public authorities Glad to see you soon !

Very bad standard but very nice receptionist

Hello We arrived late and seriously I did not think any hotel in the accor hotel group would be so low standard Just thought it would be basic but not feel unsafe I am sorry to have had this experience and seriously hope all the money will be refunded on my card as I left the hotel and moved to another accor hotel in same city at 11 pm in the evening

Located in an extremely loud neighbourhood, lots of people out on the street well into the wee hours of the morning. It did cause some so concern for vehicle security as well. Staff were friendly, rooms clean.

convenient and good price

the location of the hotel is pretty good. The transportation is just in front of the hotel. People working there are kind and the room is perfect for a small travel. I've never been disappointed in Ibis Hotels.

Excellent service, but disappointing experience

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Julia J Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

I was disappointed with my experience at Ibis Budget Caen Gare. I've stayed at other Ibis Budget hotels and although they are basic, I have been satisfied with the general cleanliness of the room and the amenities. This time, however, the state of the room was very below standard. There were strange black spots on the walls and floor that looked suspiciously like mould, and the mattress cover looked like it hadn't been changed in weeks - it was absolutely covered in long dark hairs. Nevertheless, my experience was slightly redeemed by the very helpful and courteous staff members. They very kindly stored my heavy suitcase for me when I arrived early and I was impressed by their friendly demeanour.

Great for a stop over

Sue S Families - TripAdvisor review

Hotel was as expected for an Ibis Budget, clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and it is situated in a very convenient area for a variety of restaurants. Although there is no dedicated parking the paying spaces outside, which are used for the station, are free after 6.30pm until the next morning.

Dproasis Families - TripAdvisor review

Really disappointed, we had travelled from Spain with a car full of presents and luggage as we were going to the UK to see our family. We turned up to the hotel, and there was no parking. They didn't speak English, eventually a customer at the hotel translated and helped us. After half an hour they eventually said they had a staff car park where we could park. But unfortunately there was a van parked right across the enterance, so we couldn't park. We went to the room, to decide what to do, the room wasn't brilliant either. We decided to leave, couldn't get a refund either as no one spoke English. Great start to our Christmas.

Excellent value for money

Clean & comfortable room and an adequate breakfast. Nothing to dislike. The best is the price. The hotel is not far from the centre of Caen and the Tourist Office. On the opposite side of the railway station are some nice restaurants for an evening meal.

Better than expected initially.

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Guy R Couples - TripAdvisor review

On arrival parking situation better than expected, plenty of roadside spaces and free overnight. First thoughts on room positive, spacious with both worktop and sink area generous well placed in corners! Bathroom facility adequate very good power shower! Not the best position roomwise in building as we were straight across from two tram stops and over a bar but as we are avid people watchers proved very interesting.Very amusing suggestion at reception on asking for spare pillow, we could place something else under flat pillow to raise it up!!! One strange thing in room why the clothes hook was placed directly at and over the bedside and at a good height for head bonking!

A pleasant stay

We stayed with my family 2 days, the breakfast was very good, the hotel staff very welcoming, this hotel is situated near the train station and a shopping center is easily accessible on the other side of the station with many restaurants.

a quick trip

Karen M Families - TripAdvisor review

Average hotel. we stayed 2 nights at the Ibis. On booking the full address did not come up, so got lost trying to find hotel. the male on reception was the best asset to the hotel - extremely helpful and friendly. the room could have been cleaner. No floor mat for the shower. only a plastic pod with toilet and shower in. no bath mat so after the shower, fellow room mate got wet feet just going to the toilet. Sheets were clean but extremely thin, Shared the lift with 2 cleaners, the B.O was horrific, the lift still smelled of them even when they had left the lift. But the male on reception was wonderful. He deserves a pay rise.
