This was our first visit to La Rochelle and really liked it. The hotel staff were very friendly and spoke great English. The hotel had parking which was really useful as it is a busy place. You do need to pre-book this and I would recommend it. Our room was quite small but we were only there for 1 night... More

*Hotel Review - Hotel Francois 1er - by Top Contributor AngryAngMo* We were on a road trip through the south of France last year, starting in Paris, and then going down via car through the chateau area, stopping in La Rochelle for 1 night, then Bordeaux and finishing in Saint Jean de Luz. We choose the hotel because of its... More

We requested a ground floor room which we were given, unfortunately the room was cold as it only had one radiator to heat the high ceilinged room with single glazing. We asked at reception and were given an extra heater and blankets though. The room was adequate although a little grotty and the bathroom had a very odd combination of... More

This hotel is right near the bus station so if you are getting the 20 minute bus ride from the airport it is ideal and also sufficiently down a side road not to get much noise. The room we had was big enough and a fair sized en suite too. The rooms are adequately cleaned each day and new towels... More

Excellent location in old town with immediate access to shopping, restaurants, place de marche and beautiful castellated harbour. If you have a car - book the hotel car park , well worth the small charge. Rooms basic but clean and good size bathrooms. Staff are very cheerfull and friendly. Breakfast good value too! If your stay includes a Saturday -... More

This hotel was located in the very centre of La Rochelle and has off street parking which is very necessary. The town was very noisy and busy obviously in july but the hotel was quiet and comfortable. The room was a bit small and cramped and the bathroom a little basic with planning needed to use it comfortably. The staff... More

This hotel is in a great location for exploring La Rochelle and does have a limited amount of private parking which should be booked in advance. Rooms can be a little small but still acceptable particularly when you are out the whole time. Breakfast is only average. Can be trciky to find and a satnav is preferable. Roads around the... More

We stayed at this hotel last week and we were pleasantly suprised at the greeting we received from the staff. They were extremely helpful and made our stay special. The rooms were small but that suited us as we were out all the time. The only downside is there is no air conditioning but they supplied us with a fan... More

If,as did we, you arrive on a Saturday or, I assume, any other market day the hotel is inaccessible by car. We arrived in town around 11 am, hoping to leave the car, have lunch and check in at the appropriate hour. Perhaps also due to the effects of the Hotel de Ville fire a few days earlier, many streets... More

Staff are very friendly and the private parking is good but must be booked as there are less spaces than rooms. As night closes the area is very noisy from the streets around and finding the hotel is a night mare. Rooms are very small and the shower is so small its hard to turn around in. You get what... More
