We stayed at the hotel on a stop over between the South of France and Cherbourg. For a family of four, the room was tiny but nicely decorated (recent, modern style, good quality). The children had to sleep in a double bed together too (which they were ok with for a night). The owner was very attentive / friendly. The... More

Following my recent wedding my sister and family needed a lift to La Rochelle. As she had found very difficult to get from where my partner and I live in Brittany to La Rochelle we offered to drive her down. In return she offered to pay for our over night stay. We chose the Axe a Hotel based on reviews... More

Hotel is in very good condition, like new one. Rooms are clean and quiet. Good breakfast, but not included in regular price. You can notice that it's owner's passion to operate the hotel. I like to stay in this kind of hotels and that way to support this kind of entrepreneur.

We really enjoyed our visit to La Rochelle and this small bed and breakfast hotel was a surprising attraction. The owner was friendly and very helpful given us many tips on where to visit and eat. The rooms were well looked after and was cleaned with fresh towels everyday. Breakfast was continental and good value for money with a good... More

Heads up on a couple of points: the hotel does not have a lift, so we had to carry our suitcases up a somewhat narrow flight of stairs. This also means it's not a good idea for people with limited mobility. We were in room 8, which was two levels up, and our room was a little small, although judging... More

Very good hotel in excellent location and very reasonably priced, the room was very clean but a little small and very hot, the staff were very helpful. the beds are comfortable and the shower is excellent. there is a secure underground parking area about 100 yards away which cost 5 euros overnight.

Great find in a fairly expensive city. We booked the morning we arrived and were pleasantly surprised how clean and fresh the place was. It looks like its been recently refurbished. The guy who greeted us was very friendly and had great English. Location is perfect! About 100m from the tourist office and harbour !

I want to give this little hotel 5 stars - it is very friendly, very clean and wonderfully situated near the port and station but on a summer night the rooms are incredibly hot and the street outside is too noisy to be able to open the windows. Also, the noise from an adjoining room was a problem. However, it... More

The hotel was kind of "alright", especially after conquering it with the car in a crowded summer afternoon. The location is pretty good, and the man at the reception was correct, neither nice nor unpleasant, but there was something odd in the welcome. As if he was just a guest... and in fact for a good time of the day... More

This was an overnight stop via Mont St Michel. Parking is a couple of minutes walk away at an underground car park with reasonable prices . The Axe is a very modern, yet compact hostel rather than a hotel. After 8pm It isn't staffed but you are given a code to get in. Breakfast is perfectly acceptable and in line... More
