Good value for a budget town centre hotel. Bathrooms clean but a bit tired, bed ok. No a/c. Short level walk into the historic town with plentiful choice of good restaurants. Free on-site parking is a definite bonus for this location.

This hotel is well situated. Staff were present and room clean. It suited our needs and although not a huge choice at breakfast I found it good value for money. Would recommend and would go back as it is a good base for exploring La Rochelle. The only thing that wouldake it better would be a sitting area in rooms... More

I paid 35 pounds ( 48 euros ) a night for this hotel and will review on that basis. The rooms were clean and tidy, bed was firm and comfy and the shower was hot and powerful.Free consistent wifi too. We did not get a balcony room so ask for this if you want it. For 6 euros a day... More

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
