We use to stay there in La Rochelle, and once again it was a good time. We had an apartment and then we could have breakfast and small diners in the room. The place is quiet and at the same time in the center of the city, near the central market. Rooms are well equipped, modern furniture, and have been... More

Good size room, large bed, good bathroom and nice and clean. NOTE: This hotel does NOT have A/C so if you travel in warm weather.. be warned. We stayed one night and it was perfectly acceptable. Good service and clean room.

First impressions fairly good. Staff seemed helpful, bar area and lounge lovely, pool area as described by others tiny. Room just about ok, scruffy inside and dated. However we had a major problem with our room (plumbing issue) and whilst we moved rooms which was very annoying and inconvenient no one apologised, asked us if the new room was ok.... More

This hotel is located in a lovely central part of la Rochelle - just off Rue Chaudrier which runs down to the port - shopping heaven for those inclined - with a refined mix of cosmopolitan culture and French chic on display from beautiful retained architecture, French café frontages, to an eclectic mix of local circumstances. The streets are meticulously... More

Booked fairly last minute. La Rochelle lovely, plenty of restaurants. Impressive from outside hotel and reception rooms. Our room was classed as apartment, which I thought would give us more space. Room was of 2* quality if that. Has tiny hotplate and a sink so probably useful if you have children with you (though you could not have children as... More

Wanted a short break for my husband and I and two older kids (17 and 18). Ticked all the boxes. Very clean, great base for the area and plenty of restaurants as well as beaches and sightseeing opportunities. Boat trip good, wheel lovely. Recommended.

I booked well in advance to take my family to La Rochelle for an August break. I booked a twin, for the teenage girls and a double for my wife and I. I requested the rooms be close to each other. We were separated to the 1st and 4th floor with "no other vacancies available" so were stuck with it.... More

We stayed in the suite 34 in the "hotel 5 stars" building (the old one). I will start the negative points if you don't mind. It has nothing of a 5 stars hotel standards. No air conditioning, 1 velux in our bedroom but it has been closed with screws as the window was apparently broken. In the children room, 1... More
