Tel: 00 33 (0)321 96 10 10

This hotel scrapes in at two stars but it does have great stopover potential thanks to a superb central location opposite the railway station. Also in its favour is that it is just a few steps away from the Town Hall, the park and the shopping opportunities on rue Jacquard and within walking distance from Calais town.

Rooms are small but come with room for up to 3 people and all have a shower, basin and tv. The bar area is a tad small but does manages to fit in a billiards table and a television. Pets are welcome at no extra charge, parking is free and WiFi is available at 1 euro an hour.

If all you want is acces to the main town, a place to park your car and a bed for the night, then at the price, Bonsai is great value for money.

Tariff: From 37 euros
Breakfast: 5 euros
