We had a suite on the back of this boutique hotel with two rooms and a living. All well decorated in a contemporary way with nice colors and design. The beds were very good (although the pillows were a bit too small for us !!). We arrived earlier than anticipated and we got access to the room immediately, the personnel... More

We typically spend holidays in 'chain' hotels, Hyatt, Four Seasons, Jumeirah etc.. because of the 'minimum level of service and guarantee that it represents'. I do realise that you sometimes miss the authenticity of a family owned business and how much value this can add when it is well run. This was typically the case of La Monnair Art &... More

Great location, beautiful old building and trendy art, very friendly staff. As several reviewers have pointed out, rooms are smallish and don't offer much by way of storage, which is OK for a short stay. Avoid rooms over the street as it gets a bit noisy.

A beautiful old building in the old harbor on the quiet street makes this hotel a candidate for a good stay? Well, maybe. Very bright and modern furnishings in the room, but not very practical. Limited storage, even for a short stay. Quite small but very comfortable bed. Small bathroom. Good breakfast but quite expensive. Excellent staff. Public parking nearby.

Great location and staff were very helpful. However we stayed in one of their smaller rooms for a few nights and the room seemed to be style over practical. There were 3 coathangers on a plastic tree for us to use and that was the extent of the storage space, so it meant living out of a suitcase for a... More

Sweet little hotel, tucked quietly away on the edge of town, but within a few yards of the main restaurant area, shops, old town and port. Room and bed on the small side, but very comfortable. It says "art" hotel - it was all very strange ! Good for brief stopover, but would have wanted more space if staying longer.... More

Spent three evenings at La Monnaie and was very impressed with the service of the staff and the attention to detail. The Hotel is located on the edge of all touristy in La Rochelle so you can enjoy the organized bedlam and then retire to a quite evening at the hotels. Mattresses were extremely comfortable even though they were only... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 daughters (11 and 13 yrs) and cannot recommend it enough. From the warm welcome we received on arrival until the moment we left the staff could not have helped more - day and night shift staff work incredibly hard and nothing is too much trouble. Their English was excellent and they... More

The hotel and the staff are fantastic. My family just returned from a week in their two bedroom suite which was perfect us and for the two children. The location is perfect for restaurants and the beach, and the staff looked after us amazingly well. We will be back.

We stayed in La Rochelle for two nights only and the hotel was perfectly placed for both the town and its many excellent restaurants (most of which were under two minutes walk away) and the local sandy beach which was less than a five minute walk from the hotel. Extremely friendly and helpful staff who looked after us even after... More
