Hotel in Honfleur, France

Does anyone have any suggestions for a nice hotel to stay in Honfleur France? We are lookign to spend in between $150-200. My husband and I will be there in August and will have a rental car. We would like to stay as close as we can to the old town/ city centre but after having read Rick Steves's review on driving/ parking in Honfleur we are a little apprehensive! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Le Cheval Blanc. It's a minute or so walk from the old port.

Castel Albertine is half the price, only ten minute walk away, but the entire ambiance of Honfleur changes in that half mile or so.

On the bargain end, there's an etap hotel toward the south end of the new port, about a ten minute walk.

Parking in Honfleur has never been an issue for me except on market day, which I've unremembered when is.

The best grub is not around the port, but uphill to the square and down the steet to the northwest of the square (toward Rodin museum which I've never entered) -- essentially the square on which the Corsair restaurant sits (which is also good) and the small street that runs beside it (hang a left after one block for a whole slew of places). Pick what you want from the menues, they're all good.

As you may have guessed, I don't care for Honfeur at all, but just keep going back every couple of years hoping they'll get it right eventually. :)

Honfleur is a darling and relaxing town. My husband and I along with 2 other couples stayed in Honfleur for 2 nights in September 2009. We all stayed at a charming B&B called "La Cour Sainte Catherine", This B&B is recommended by Rick Steves, and we all highly recommend it as well. It is only a few minutes (5-10) walk to the old town, and the B&B has parking onsite (I think it was free since we had the Rick Steves book). We didn't move our car until we left Honfleur, since everything is within walking distance. Breakfast is included (we were served delicious crepes, french bread/butter/jam, juice and coffee/hot chocolate. The grounds of the B&B are delightful as well as the owners (lovely courtyard). The price for a double is 75 euros, and 95 euros for a larger double. We stayed in the standard double, and we were very happy with our accommodations. Check it out on TripAdvisor. You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Have a great time!

There's street parking available 'up the hill' to
the west of Honfleur (sorry, forgotten the name of
the street). Just a five minute walk back to the
harbour. We were there for a week and never had
a problem finding a parking spot.

We stayed at Les Maisons de Lea, listed in Rick's France book. We liked it a lot. Parking was easy as the hotel provides a fair amount of parking spaces.

I've stayed at Le Cheval Blanc on 2 separate trips, and it's nice in a creaky sort of way. Best thing about it is that is is right on the quay and you can watch the fishing boats come in. Also has a view of the bridge to Le Havre. Parking hasn't been a problem -- you can unload in front of the hotel, then there is a public parking lot close by -- just be sure not to leave anything in your car. The old port and square with St. Catherine's church and restaurants are just a short walk away.
