Hotel Morand2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I have to say that the Hotel Morand is very quaint indeed. However, as a single traveller, I was placed in the "attic room" where the entry door was cut by a third to fit the door frame and I had to climb the four flights of stairs (no lift). I am pretty adaptable to anything so it was fine. I was more interested in being in the center of the city and finding free on-street parking for my rental car. Breakfast was adequate as were the front desk staff. It is cheap, and will be in business for a long time as long as they keep the rates low.
We have fond memories of a driving holiday in France a few years ago.We stayed in a variety of accommodation places and all inexpensive.We enjoyed French hospitality in everywhere from spartan to elegant in private homes, pubs, small hotels, from old buildings to modern and all without exception were clean. We were not expecting all mod cons for the price this hotel were charging but we were expecting clean. It was far from. The Hotel Morand is an affront to French hoteliers. It is dirty, scruffy, dark and cold. We were shown two rooms, the first room was the most depressing I have ever seen and everywhere felt grimy so much so that I wouldn’t have unpacked my case to put my clothes in the broken, dusty wardrobe or dresser. You needed to be a contortionist to use the wc. We were shown a second room, marginally better and possibly acceptable if desperate but that is until we saw the shower curtain, not fit for human use. Some people think that because a place is cheap that anything goes, in my book it doesn’t. Not bothered about scratched furniture and worn rugs but not keeping a place clean is inexcusable because hot water, detergent and elbow grease is easily had. Needless to say we didn’t stay but they still charged us for one night ,if it had been in this country we would not have paid because it isn’t up to basic standards.
This hotel is in need of some work. The room had holes in the cabinets and wall, and broken tiles. The location is good for visiting the cathedral but there is no parking although they have an agreement with the municipal parking group. We decided to move after one night although we initially reserved a room for two nights. Please be aware that the hotel does not have an elevator and the stairs are narrow and poorly lit - very difficult for anyone with mobility issues.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and our inability to speak French was never a problem. We parked on street the first night and then moved to the museum underground immediately the next morning as the area seemed a little rough for leaving our luggage in the trunk. The ensuite bath facilities in our room were complete as advertised, but very cramped. Our room was clean (in fact it had been mopped with bleach just before we arrived) but a little "tired" in its appointments. The bed was just OK, but we walked around Rouen so much that we were too exhausted to notice .
My wife and I stayed here 2 nights during a motorcycle tour in May 2017. We chose because of the old coaching house style. Check in was efficient and the gent in reception was very helpful. Yes there are no lifts and the spiral stairs were interesting carrying 2 panniers and helmets, but the concierge gave us a hand without being asked. Our room (no4) had comfy bed and plenty of space to lay out sweaty motorcycle gear. Complimentary coffee was good, and not always available in French hotels. The shower room ensuite was a bit of a home build job, but remember this is a 16th C coaching inn, so any additions to the rooms will be a compromise. The shower area does need a redecorate as the tiles were falling off the walls a bit and the shower head could do with a swap to a bigger one. Having said that we were able to have a nice wash off without whacking elbows on the walls so for us the space was adequate. Breakfast was obviously continental in naturebut that suits us, but the coffee did put hair on your chest, Mrs C had to wax hers later 😁. Parking, at a reduced rate, is in the public underground car park 50mtrs away and the bikes were safe there. Would we come back, yes and be quite content. But please guys do a bit of decorating before we get there please.
Stayed here for one night. It is very well situated in the centre of Rouen. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. It not the Ritz, but you get what you pay for. The breakfast was good and the hotel was clean, if in need of a lick of paint
Good location. Good public parking facility. Walking distance to most places. Great if you are on a budget. Threadbare carpet. Gloomy interior Dusty, musty small rooms. Some rooms are self contained but facilities are packed very tight. Loud; water running. Clean sheets, uncomfortable mattress. Breakfast is overpriced. Excellent WiFi connection. Friendly & pleasant staff
A lovely little hotel to stay at. Very old stylings but our room had all facilities included. There is a steep stair case to traverse so I would take that into consideration. It is a stones throw from the Musee Des Artes which was worth a visit and a short walk to the city centre. A very enjoyable stay
Hotel is central to old part of Rouen, and low cost. Parking in evening very difficult (public car parks have 1.9m limit) for Land Rover. Room was small, with cramped bathroom. Didn't try the breakfast. Staff were helpful.
Hotel Morand situates in an old building a short walk from the train station and the centre of town. Room is rather basic but good size. Exposed beams in the ceiling, consistent with the old open beam buildings in old part of the city. Things are old in the room but it works for us. Please note that door is locked at 7 PM and you have to check in before that time.
