The Champlain hotel is well located as a base to stay, in the heart of old La Rochelle, within easy walking distance from the harbour front; where there are many restaurants to choose from, within 10-15 mins. On Sunday's most restaurants in the side streets and near the old market square are closed, walking distance a good 5-10 mins. All... More

This hotel is really lovely. It's decor it's beautiful & originial I believe. The garden is stunning with flowers & seating. The breakfast room is welcoming & good attention to detail. The staff on reception were very pleasant & helpful. The bedroom was for 2 of us. Was clean & fair amount of space. The shower & loo are separate... More

It's possible to stay at a very good rate, through Brittany Ferries, at this smart and comfortable hotel just off the Place Verdun. Our second visit did not disappoint and we again appreciated having such an excellent base, well situated for reaching the many delights of la Rochelle - including the park (just turn right, cross road then left along...

The Champlain hotel lived to our expectations. Situated in the heart of La Rochelle old district, around 10minutes walk from the harbour, it was a quiet haven after a busy day exploring the area. This hotel is in two parts as it was originally an old merchant house, Maison de Negociant, to which a modern part has been added. The... More

Lovely atmosphere of the Belle Epoque, beautiful entry with French Empire furnishings, consols with large vases of flowers, a curving elegant staircase, and parterre garden. The staff were all extremely friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was excellent. Within short distance to the waterfront and eating places but at a good distance from any noise - very quiet at night. Free... More

Stayed 2 nights - 1 before and once after flight to Brussels. Our welcome by the receptionist on 6th August was the best genuine welcome I have ever had in all my experience of travelling the world! Nothing flashy, no welcome cocktail but a really friendly, professional and welcoming greeting. Lovely hotel, delightful garden and very friendly professional staff. Enjoyed... More

The staff is friendly, but the building is old-fashioned and much to noisy. Every door makes some noise, so you will be waked up when the clean-service begins !!! The parking you can reservate = horrible. When driving a moderate car without parkingsensors = unbelievable. When your weight is + 80 kg it will be impossible to leave your car.

We booked this hotel for one night and wanted easy access to the harbour and restaurant area of La Rochelle while being able to sleep soundly when back in the Hotel. This place has it all! The decor perfectly suits the age of the Hotel, the room was spacious and very comfortable plus most importantly very quiet. It is only... More

For the price you pay, it's VERY good value. I'm not saying it's the best hotel in the world, even tho the top score, but you are also paying a tenth of the price of a 5 star hotel. The rooms are clean and the AC works silently. I will stay here the next time I visit La Rochelle, that's... More

We stayed for three nights during the off-season to visit our son, who went to college here for a year. Staff was very friendly, but be prepared to use your French (or Google Translate) when arriving at night. Parking was offered on the second floor of a repair shop next door. Our room was a little dated, but had an... More
