Both rooms at front but no noise made it through the windows! Very helpful Staff who directed us to somewhere to print a boarding pass, the nearest car park ( Parking... More

this has to be in the best location. We had a quiet room at the back of the hotel. Very friendly staff, clean room. Small but effective shower. Typical French breakfast and close to lots of great restaurants. Port area was fun and near Aquarium. Take a yellow boat to the beach at La Minims for only 3 or 4... More

We stayed here for four nights as a treat for our 25th wedding anniversary and we loved every minute of it. No fancy frills or bathroom full of useless products, just a really comfortable room with a great view of the harbour, and the most friendly and helpful staff you could wish for. Simple but filling breakfast served with a... More

We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was so close to the harbor and restaurants. Our room was quite spacious compared to many European hotels, and it had a lively decor. We found parking nearby, and it was easy to walk around the town and harbor area. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This small hotel was located just right in the harbour and the lively street aside. The standard was according to promise so no surprises. We upgraded to harbour view which was a great choice. The friendly staff Helped us and guided us to 3 great restaurants aming hundreds and we were so Happy about that. Genuin service and very helpful.

We stayed a week in the Hotel de l'Ocean at La Rochelle and the comfort and location were second to none. Based a stone through from the harbour, the staff and facilities were magnificent. Bed and breakfast with sizeable rooms and a wonderful resort. Breakfast in the morning was of a high standard and the staff could not have made... More

If I could give this 31/2 marks I would as it falls somewhere between average and very good...Very central hotel. Rooms at the front have attractive views over the port and the towers but may be noisy because of restaurant/street activity below. Rooms tired but beds clean and shower good, wifi quite good one floor up from reception. Very helpful... More

Location was very good near the port, even though there was a lot of noise we didnt hear a thing during the night thank to the soundproofed windows ! Rooms are clean and staff very nice and helpful. If you need a good hotel for a reasonable price choose Hotel de l'Ocean.

A very good location in the heart of the town next to the old port. No private parking, but very cheap public parking within 120 yards, 4.5Euro for 24 hours. A very warm welcome in a fresh atmosphere. The room overlooking the marina was ideal. The water was hot on demand, in other words we did not have to wait... More
