Novotel Le Havre Centre Gare

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good location right opposite the train station, but a little too far from the main town centre on foot, however the tram/bus takes you to the main action in two stops. Room on 4th floor was very comfortable, nice size for two people with balcony, but the view is nothing exceptional. Fridge/kettle in room, but paper cups for a four star hotel is not ideal in my opinion. Sauna and jacuzzi on ground floor level are a great addition. I didn't try the breakfast, but ordered coffee as room service, which didn't taste very nice. Overall a good experience, comfortable rooms and friendly staff.

There is AC in the room, but the halls were so warm that the room AC had trouble keeping up. We used the pull out bed and there was no room on the floor to open any suitcases. All ice machines in the facility were broken and there was no freezer in the room. The staff was friendly and the location next to the docks wasn't bad. Overall the hotel was just average.

Nice Novotel standard. Spacious room with everything you need. Short stay. Very comfortable. Parking and wifi available. Breakfast. Close to city centre. Personnel speaks English. Advise book In advance as you can save up to €50

The rooms are simple. I have been in other Novotels which were better. Breakfast was nice, also Nice is the small area for kids to play. Walking to the city center is about 15 minutes. All in all a high price for what you get.

We slept here one night on our trip around Normandy. This hotel is "just ok", maybe a bit too modern architecture (?) meaning the athmosphere in the bar and corridors was a bit cold. The room was quite large and very clean as the toilet too. In the evening we had one beer downstairs in the bar. Well, maybe I am old-fashioned because I like to pay that kind of small purchases in cash...but I must say I was quite surprised because they didn´t have any change in the bar...!

We were 4 nights in the hotel and had a very pleasant stay. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room was spacious, with a nice sleepingcouch. ( we did not sleep on the couch, just sat on it). The staff helped us bij having our bromptonbikes in the hall for a safe place. The breakfast was remarkeble: fresh fruit and fresh orange juice, you could prepare. Hot bread, nice cheeses and meat, great coffemachines and fine tea. Also eggs and bacon, also the possiblity to prepare uiur own egg. Only the last morning the breakfast room was too crowdd, but the staff did their best to help every one and tried to fulfill everybodies Wishes. A great place to stay.

Easy to find and to get around in. Helpful desk excellent. Clean chairs plenty of them and Wi-Fi and power for my phone to recharge. High ceilings large adverts about what's happening in Le Havre .piano to play!

Only stayed one night and arrived late, but it was easy to find by car and the check in was very quick. The room was a typical Novotel type room but very comfortable. Just had one beer in the bar and breakfast but all was good.

The only place we could find for the holiday and i'm glad to come back to Novotel. We honestly got lucky, because right in front of the hotel we could find transportation to visit Honfleur and Étretat. Stay here if you are in Le Havre!

There is a peeling sticker to identify our room, the door was patched (badly) at some point. The refrigerator did not work. Air conditioner did not work well. We were short a towel since we had three people in our room. We went to the front desk and asked for a third towel and the clerk said that three were three and we should look under the sink. We went to check again and found two. Went again to the front desk and the clerk again insisted that there were three. We finally just insisted on another towel and he gave us a hand towel. Hotel is a huge disappointment compared to the Novotel we stayed in in Rouen.
