Our hosts Bernard and Virginie Calliet were very friendly, and made us very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, and they were always ready with a smile, and a friendly greeting. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and we were provided with fresh towels every day, during our fourteen day stay. Thank you to our hosts, for being so friendly, and making our stay such an enjoyable and quiet experience. We would recommend this hotel, and the beautiful gardens nearby, and would definitely stay here again, when we visit Rouen. It was so easy to take a five minute walk to the metro at Avenue de Caen, which takes about ten minutes to reach the city, and is reasonably priced. During our stay, we visited Notre Dame Cathedral, the Modern Church of Joan of Arc, Le Gros Horloge (the Great Clock), the Old Market Place, the Gustave Flaubert Bridge, and the Fine Arts Museum. There was also plenty of time to appreciate the beautiful and inspiring city of Gothic churches, cobblestoned pedestrian centre, hundreds of medieval half-timbered houses, and a variety of shops, tea rooms and restaurants. We also booked two trips from Rouen to Paris, on the Oui bus to visit the Catacombs of Paris, and the Eiffel Tower, as well as the Palais of Versailles. We also made day trips to other interesting places, including Giverny, Bayeux, Lisieux, Abbeville, Etretat,(and Fougeres, Brittany, on our return to Avranches. We would highly recommend visiting this amazing and beautiful city, and staying at the Ibis Budget Rouen Centre Rive Gauche.
