Good basic IBIS. Positioned near all the major attractions. Excellent staff who recommended a good place to eat. Room was very large bed was comfortable. Bathroom a wet room but needs another handle by the toilet.

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

Plus points: Rooms were larger than average Ibis hotel rooms, as where the bathrooms. Comfortable bed and AC. Breakfast was the normal Ibis standard (maybe could do with a larger choice of food). Staff were very helpful and friendly. Good base for our holiday in La Rochelle and Ile de Re. Negative points: The bar was limited, with no immediate... More

Very good location: 5 min. walk from railway station and 10 walk to the heart of the old city, 10 min. walk to busboat and boat trips departure. Room is ok: clean, Ibis-interior. Airco and flatscreen with international channels. Free wifi. Good breakfast buffet (French way, so don't expect bacon and eggs). Very friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed two nights. Arriving by car on a Sunday afternoon in July was a nightmare, however. The hotel is at 'Vieux Port', so we followed the signs to 'Vieux Port'. Simple? No. Various streets were closed with barriers, to create a Sunday pedestrian area. Fine for the pedestrians but not helpful for strangers to the town who were trying... More

We stayed a couple of days a very convenient hotel for the port area where all the buzz is in La Rochelle. Parking is in a public Car Park for which you get a daily rate at the Hotel. If you are lucky you can unload your car outside the hotel. It is a long haul to drag suitcases from... More
