  • The mansion in which the Museum is housed is a splendid place. The collections are unique, with rare pieces. Everything is well presented. We're having a very good time, right next to the Museum of fine arts (get a big, handsome staircase)

Where to stay in Rouen

If your main reason for visiting Rouen is its famous cathedral, which inspired Monet to paint dozens of canvasses, consider booking your room at a hotel in or around the city center. Despite being within walking distance of the cathedral and the river, hotels in this area provide comfort and privacy at modest prices. If you're looking to splurge and location isn't your priority, think about staying at a luxurious hotel-spa situated farther outside the city, where you can have access to heated outdoor pools.
