La Boulangerie, Rouen

La Boulangerie is a boutique accommodation, located in a quiet residential area of Rouen.  It is a few minutes walk from the city centre so you are still centrally located, minus the town centre noise.

When we first arrived at the accommodation, I was quite annoyed that the place seemed closed.  Only on closer inspection that I found a note instructing us to ring house #7 if there is noone in the Boulangerie.  

Our room was spacious and quirky.  Our bath is right across our bed with separate small room for the loo.  The bed is comfortable and clean.  No telly but an ipod dock is provided.  Ideal if you love peace and quiet.  No lifts, just stairs but Aminata was very helpful.  She insisted on carrying our luggage although we can carry it ourselves.  

TIP:  Don't miss the breakast.  Try her jam especially the orange with almond.

NOT FOR:  People who have difficulty walking.  The stairs are quite steep.

PRICE:  Very good for the service that you get.  Mind you, French people are not well known for their customer service.
