Very clean with a small harbor view. Thank god mform the gps an the front desk could not provide directions out of town. We wandered the town found little places to eat and even got lost for a short period of time. Little shops allowed us "fun" purchases.

Beautiful and design-styled hotel Well located very near to the haven Styled and nice personnel provide a good service. Handy if you travel by train and have no car, their underground car-park is small, not handy and awful if your car is big.

We stayed in La Rochelle at this hotel it was clean and staff really helpful, it is in a good position close to the old port. We had breakfast and it was ample and well served. Like most hotels these days they charge to much to park your car.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July. Hotel has a fantastic position, 5 mins from the beach and 5 mins from the centre of town with lots of little bars and wonderful restaurants. We arrived really early and our room wasn't ready, to be fair I had expected it not to be, so we left our bags and went exploring.... More

The position of the hotel was perfect, right near a strip of great restaurants and walking distance to everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room design was very good and although the room was small it did not feel small. The artwork was interesting even if it was not all to our liking.

A modern, exquisitely renovated little hotel situated in a quiet street in central La Rochelle. It was perfectly located to get away from the hoopla and great number of tourists, yet 50 metres from a street full of restaurants and not much further from the waterfront, the beach and shopping for those so inclined. We were grateful we booked parking... More

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
