    I love this street (I lived there I was very young). It is almost timeless and merit that attention so she is beautiful. She has managed to keep its character despite all the progress... It is simply MAGNIFICENT and unavoidable!

    Despite being a reasonably large town has a historic centre very crop that focuses around this way. The houses are very characteristic and the Cathedral is one of the finest examples of French Gothic cathedrals. I liked everything very much.

    Little, because just a (kinda commercial) Street with many chains. Two stars: 1) the Gros Horloge and 2) the Cathedrale, where this Street between.

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.
