Hotel des Loges
Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel des Loges Honfleur
We found this hotel to be just okay. The owner was neutral, definitely not friendly. The room was on the smallish side; just 2 thin blankets (that needed laundering). No duvets. The sheets were clean (although I think it is not a good sign when someone even has to mention that) and the bed slept fine. The bathroom was clean. All of the carpets, but especially those on the staircases, were absolutely filthy. There are many curving steps, which is charming in these lovely old buildings, but no help with the luggage. The location is great, charming street - but no parking. You have a choice of two options for parking - both on the next streets down; one which is pay per hour, and the other free but a long way away and often full. Overall, I'd give this hotel a description of spartan. As we investigated the town, we found another fabulous, charming inn, just around the corner. They had two rooms available, one for 25 euros less than the Loges (small size but beautiful and typically French), and the other for 5 euros more. The lobby there was wonderful and all the rooms had deluxe, granite bathrooms, etc. Take your time and do a lot of investigation in Honfleur. At 125 Euros a room for the Loges, it is extremely overpriced. (Breakfast - cold- is an additonal 10 euros. It consists of a small pot of coffee or tea, a glass of juice, one hard roll and one croissant, butter and jam, and a slice of cheese. I asked for fruit, and was given a plate with several paper thin slices of an apple, 3 teeny slices of a banana, and one translucent slice each of kiwi and pear. Someone at the Loges is definitely watching their pennies!!!)
Wonderful hotel and staff
We stayed two nights in mid March. The location, is close enough to everything, but just far enough away to be quiet. Nice sized room, comfy bed with a great bath. Catherine, the owner was personable and helpful with restaurant advice. She even took care of our laundry, for a very reasonable price with next day return.
The town is deceptive. Driving in, we were ready to be disappointed. It looked a bit of urban sprawl. But when we got into the heart of the older town, we were delighted.
I had looked forward to staying at the Hoteld des Loges for a long time. I'd read great reviews. Their website painted a lovely picture.
When we checked into the hotel we were given a room key and sent up the stairs. When we opened the door to the room the bed was unmade, the remains of someones breakfast were on the floor. When we returned to the front desk we were given no apology. Instead we were told that all the rooms were unmade(it was 1:30 pm). We were given a different key and sent to leave our bags in another room. That room was a mess as well.
Around three the room was made and we were able to unpack. The room was small and dark (one window). The bathroom was also small. There were two thin blankets on the bed. The room was Euro 125 per night. Breakfast would have been 10 euros per person extra.
We checked out the next morning and checked into a wonderful B and B (---------).
125 Euros is too much to spend on a small room and bad service.
Lovely Hotel. Beautiful Town
Stayed in Hotel des Loges in early November 2004. Loved the Hotel, which is located on a quiet street, not far from all the local attractions. Rooms a very well appointed and modern. Would have loved a kettle in the room,but alas you can't have everything. Breakfast is pretty basis, and maybe not worth bothering with. Looking forward to going back again as soon as possible.
Old building but modern interior
Most of Honfleur is 'old' - hence its attraction. But the rooms in this hotel are light and modern. However, do get good directions especially if arriving at a busy time (and remember that the many restaurants ensure that Sundays are always 'busy'). Parking is a problem in Honfleur but you should be able to park without difficulty in a public carpark further along the street, which is another 'plus'.
A HUGE find!
Don't you love it when you think you have found the perfect gem of a hotel and are not disappointed?! I cannot say enough nice things about the Hotel des Loges: inexpensive, centrally located, clean, modern (but still French), and the staff is great too. We rented the house in the back for ten(10) days and our total bill came to 770.00euros. Catherine Chouridis, the owner, was always around to make sure we were doing okay and could not have been friendlier. I highly recommend this hotel. We used it as a base for 10 days, had a car, and took day trips from Honfleur to most of Normandy. It was ideal in every way.
What a treat!
This is a charming hotel! We stayed for two nights and wished we could stay longer. It was the highlight of our 3 week vacation in England and France. Catherine and her staff are terrific. The rooms are stylish and super clean with spacious bathrooms with big tubs! The beds are dreamy. It is such a value-- and we would go back in a minute. What a treat!
Excellent! A delightful small hotel with staff to match. Very clean and comfortable and well placed close to town centre.
Catherine (the owner) is totally charming. Breakfast is great value.
Very comfortable clean sweet hotel
We extended our stay at this hotel because we found it so comfortable. The staff was great and very helpful. The beds were very comfortable, and the room was nice.
The only drawback was the squeeky floors, which I felt bad about as I was on the top floor.
We didn't eat the breakfast, but we found everything here excellent.
A gorgeous boutique style hotel. Small and in a quiet residential street but only 5 mins walk(if that) from town centre. The staff were helpful and attentive. Our room was well designed and comfortable. The hotel is furnished with items from the owners own decor shop (opposite the hotel!) Breakfast was delicious and made with organic produce.
Great would go agin and recommend to anyone! Value for money too!!!

In Duclair today, I toured the Saint-Wandrille abbey. No one was allowed to go inside, for fear of disturbing the nuns. Abbeys always worried me. So quiet. After we(it's not a private cruise)toured some abbey ruins, without the nuns, so I could breathe without freaking ...
Okay, poo it! Be gone with the budget! I just arrived at the cruise docking station and the taxi cost me €289.58! Oh well, the cruise is seven days, so I think I'll just relax; no more jumping around from place to place! The cruise cost €1324.65 and begins in Honfleur, France. Yes, expensive, but everything is already planned out for me. So I can actually take a break! That's what vacations are about, ...
Last night was spent in Le Havre, in once again a free camping spot. It is remarkable but they are everywhere in France. If you want to pay for a real caravan park then you will need to wait until March/April before they are open, so anywho we bunked down for the night after arriving mid afternoon. We took a walk looking for a warm pub or restaurant and since it was Monday, nothing was open. The majority of business ...
... not far from Camembert, as well as several other villages that local fromage varieties bare their name such as Pont-l’Eveque. You can smell a fromagerie a mile away, and we happily tasted a few of the local varieties.
One last stop before arriving in Paris – the flower filled streets of Giverny. It was drizzly and rainy, but we happily walked along Rue Claude Monet with its picture perfect cottages covered in vines and pretty little ...
... most of the cathedrals. So it was enjoyable.
The city is extremely old and even shipped goods to William the Conqueror! Also Samuel Champlain set off for the Americas from the that port after which he founded Quebec City. So it is a historically interesting city. The Eglise St. Catherine is very interesting as well. At the time it was built in 1466 there were no catherdral architects in the area, only boat architects if ...
