At a Glance

The Bourgtheroulde could be described as a hybrid hotel, boasting historical elements alongside modern (sometimes crass) décor and a grand spa


L’hotel Bourgtheroulde is set in a Renaissance townhouse that has been deemed a historical monument by the city of Rouen. When it opened as a hotel in 2012 the management introduced a vibrant, almost futuristic aesthetic to the common areas.

These modern additions are in stark contrast to the ornate façade featuring reliefs of historical events. Not everyone will love the glass-floored lobby area that offers views down into the bubbling spa pool below, though spa lovers appreciate the large pool, six treatment rooms and variety of aqua fitness options.

Guest rooms include elements of the original structure with modern amenities added in, resulting in a somewhat confusing, strange aesthetic. Room sizes vary significantly because the initial layout of the home remains intact. The higher room categories might feature wooden paneling and sloped ceilings but there is unappealing brown tiling in the bathrooms. The views from rooms on higher floors – whether they look out onto the square or into the entryway – are pretty. The renovated modern rooms feature a lighter color scheme.

Who Should Stay

Lovers of Renaissance art who are open to an interesting remix of style and groups who would like to be close to all of the must-see places in Rouen.
