From past to present

On these picture, dating from the mid-1950s, you can see that the Hotel Cardinal was an integral part of the restaurant “La brasserie Paul”. In the past, this was not located at 1 Place de la Cathédrale but at the corner of Rue Grand Pont and Rue aux Ours. This famous brewery-restaurant-hotel was owned by the company Kholer & Criblez associés. During the bombings of 1944, all this was razed to the ground and it was not until the 1950s that Mr Kholer opened the “new” Brasserie Paul opposite the cathedral. History does not say what happened to Mr Criblez, but over time the Brasserie Paul was split in two and the Cardinal Hotel was built in the early 1960s, leaving the Brasserie Paul with only its restaurant activity.


Opposite the hotel is the Notre-Dame de Rouen Cathedral, built in the 12th century.

Opening : every day except January 1st, May 1st and November 11th.
