Mercure Caen Centre Port de Plaisance

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel staff was very helpful, food we ordered from room service was excellent, large comfortable room, quick, free airport shuttle. Everything you'd expect from a top tier hotel chain, and a little more.

Staff very helpful and friendly. Room not quite as nice as Mercure in Paris. Disappointed that room did not have safe . Very good breakfast buffet.

Hotel staff are fabulous. The rooms could use some upgrade. Showers are difficult to use and carpets are pulling away from wall.

Located well for shops and wandering the town, but not close to ferry or Normandy. Hotel was very good, breakfast is much better off premises. Town is very good place to wonder and spend the day.

We went to Caen to visit Mount St. Michel and to see the WW II landing beaches and American cemetery in mid September of 2013. The staff was helpful pointing us toward good tour options for the beaches/cemetery, and there are lots of good restaurants nearby. Several Globus Tour or similar tour buses had large numbers of patrons staying there; the fact that these reputable large tour operators choose to bring their customers there speaks well for the staff. Also, despite the fact that Caen has only 40,000 people, the hotel staff at the front desk spoke and understood English well enough to be helpful. The number 2 Caen bus runs to the museum on the north side of town from practically the front door of the hotel, and the tram runs from the train station to a stop that is 3 blocks from the hotel. Just plan ahead and you won't need to use a cab to get there!

Couldn't charge electronics while out during the day. Outlets powered off when key removed from slot
