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

Dear Steveboyz, Thank you for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor. I am thrilled that you enjoyed our location and our little touches. We offer a buffet breakfast, with a wide variety of homemade pastries, local jams, fruit juices, cheese, cooked meats, eggs, yoghurts, hence the price. We totally understand if you usually do not eat much in the morning and... More

We spent 2 nights at here & what a fabulous position in town. Turn left out the door & the town beach is 5 minutes away, turn right & the harbour and hundreds of great restaurants & bars are minutes away. We stayed 2 nights, had a great nights sleep on both nights & enjoyed the location & the service... 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

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
