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.

  • Interesting structure, did not go in as was during a few hours stay in town. Interesting history surrounding the square of Jean of Arc
  • Merci. Let the homeless get inside and make it available for disable and families with small children in baby carriage.
  • Could not enter it due to downward stairs to access it. Not handicapped accessible.
  • Not the sole reason to visit Rouen. It is a weird church but interesting. Next to it is the spot where thru burned Jeanne d'Arc
  • Was not impressed by the church itself, except for the stained glass on the northern side of the building. Unfortunately, many homeless were around and didn't walk far to relieve themselves...
