Located between the train station and the old port, this hotel is a short walk to any of the main sites you would want to visit in La Rochelle. Room is the typical Ibis efficiency, not fancy, but clean, comfortable (especially the new beds) and yes efficient. Free wifi works perfectly and is easy to connect to. Our room was... More

Stayed one night while passing through town. Staff are bilingual and friendly although know nothing about the local area or able to recommend any eateries which is a tad disappointing. Room was ok. Mostly quiet which was what we needed. King size bed was good and a small wall mounted flat screen TV with 2 English channels. Anyone that's stayed... More

I called to check if there is really a parking nearby as it is announced on the site. This is a deal breaker for us, no parking no visit. Even if its public and has to be paid separately, no problem. We just need to be sure. The young man at the reception desk was rude and kept repeating that... More

The location by the old port is great, but our room was really hot through the night, even with the heating turned off. We just couldn't get it cool, and this was in December!! There is parking provision in the nearby underground car park, but this and the hotel itself are a bit tricky to find. There's also no pull-in... More

We were travelling around France with our dog and were lucky enough to stay in La Rochelle for 2 nights. The location of this hotel is second to none being situated beside the port and minutes from the old town. Our room was a great size especially having our dog with us. We find Ibis hotels are incredibly accommodating when... More

Stayed here with my mum and my little dog for two nights in August. Couldn't park outside to collect our ticket for Vieux Port car park so just drove straight to car park which was fine but apparently if we'd wanted to move the car during our stay this would have been a problem! Anyway apart from that this hotel... More

We were staying at the Mercure in Lorient and asked them to book a hotel in La Rochelle preferably one in their group which is how we came to arrive here. This is no reflection on the Mercure whom we found to be first class. We had the misfortune to arrive in the midst of the August holiday and people... More
