I agree with some of the reviews, however you don't have so many alternatives in La Rochelle, and I found this to be one of the better ones. First make sure you book the parking spot if you drive in. I called in and reserved an outside spot, as I have a 5 meter two ton car, and they confirmed... More

Very pleased to have chosen this hotel. Absolutely perfect position for the best restaurants, the town centre & harbour, and the beach. Room was fine and clean, service was also very good. Perhaps not as pristine as one might expect for a four star but still our choice for another visit and nicely quiet. Breakfasts were good and overall a... More

Having spent a week in La Rochelle last September, we decided to spend four nights at La Monnaie to celebrate my wife's birthday. I booked on line several weeks ago and received a confirmed booking only to be told a few days later that they couldn't accommodate us. After protesting, the matter was sorted and I have to say, they... More

Looks great from the outside. Rooms are really form over function, wardrobes consist of shelves in the main bedroom with no doors. Bathroom really cramped for 2 agile , thin people. Shower floor consisted of a perforated sheet of stainless which was obviously difficult to hygiene hence fusty smell.No toiletries in bathroom apart from a small bar of soap and... More

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
