A very cheap place, but there is nobody at check-in till 3pm, you just cant get into a hotel at all - its locked, unless you try a backdoor:) Flies were allover the first floor - in dining area and toilets, so didnt eat anything there, but there is no need since the city center with amazing restaurants is just...

My boyfriend and I stayed in October 2014 for one night as part of a road trip to different cities in France. La Rochelle is a charming city to visit. We were not interested in a hotel with all of the luxuries...we only wanted a clean place to sleep. This hotel provided that. No complaints. However, we did have access... More

Firstly the Altica is cheap, €48 per night plus tax. What you save you will spend on taxis going back and forth to the town which is a good 20-25 minute walk. The hotel is situated in a modern industrial area which also has the university and is souless and empty especially at weekends. The hotel rooms are prison-like with... More

This hotel has little character and charm but it's location and price mean we would stay there again. Very cheap, great free car park, free wifi and reasonably priced breakfast. But the best part about staying here is that it is possible to walk to both the harbour - with all it's lovely seafood restaurants, and the beach. Had a... More

From the moment I arrived this hotel was not very good. I arrived on a Sunday afternoon to find that the doors were closed and you had to check in via a machine. This machine did not recognize my booking number, not my name and my only option was to book another room. Luckily I had not pre-paid the first... More

We stayed in Hôtel Altica La Rochelle for one night in May 2014. Pros: Much cheaper than in the city centre but still within a walking distance to everywhere. Clean. Strong wi-fi. Cons: Very small bathroom. Shower curtains. Uncomfortable bed. Also, we had to wait outside until someone came at 5 pm because their check-in machine wasn't working. Pricey breakfast.... More

I enjoyed the decoration of our room, and the location. The staff was very polite, and the coffe machine in the entrance hall functioned. However, you will need your memory for the code of the door. And try to get a room on the side of the hotel which is NOT facing the construction... (except if you are like me,... More

We booked this because of its great value for money (50 euro a night for a triple room for three adults) and its location and found it exactly what we wanted. Very clean and well equipped, efficient shower, comfortable beds, good base for walking to the harbour at La Rochelle, close to good quality eating places for breakfast (and presumably... More

Stayed two nights at the Altica. Exactly as described, a budget hotel but was clean and everything was good. If you want to check in before 5pm you need to phone the hotel before 11.30am on the day of your booking for the door code. You can then get in your room after 2pm and pay when reception opens at...
