“Clean, functional - does what it says on the tin !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Friendly staff, great location for town & restaurants (10 min walk), functional apart-hotel that does exactly as it advertises. Clean, modern rooms, well equipped. Feels a bit clinical & industrial in its clean modern design. Good patisserie / coffee shop a few doors down. Would stay again...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Fantastic access to the impressive old port of La Rochelle. Just walk up the road and you are greeted by the amazing view of the fortified harbour. Ample free parking and free wifi. Couldnt get internet telephone calls to work, but now realise this is solved if you ask the hotel to enable certain ports on the router (and firewall?). (eg for Viber TCP 5242 abd 4244 and UDP 5243 and 9785).

Breakfast was very good quality and value for money. Proper fruit juice and v nice coffee. Even had jam from my local area! (Wilkin & Sons of Tiptree, Essex.) But confess to consuming more Nutella with the tasty croissants.

Rooms were very clean and new. On google earth the area is a building site, so imagine its very new.
The hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant, and I was very glad of their grasp of English as I can't parlez beyond Bonnet de Douche!

Location was perfect, with a carrefour supermarket just round the corner. Was also grateful of the local fast food establishments within walking distance on one occassion.

Great trip...can't wait to go again next year.

Yes its near the harbour and old town and its modern but the design of the rooms is awful. Lots of space wasted. Small shower in huge bathroom TV behind folding table. No bar or lounge facilities

Problem its a small number apartments trying to be a hotel -it doesn't work

We booked this hotel for a few days on the way to Spain, unfortunately my son broke his leg 4 days before departure and we will not be able to travel. The hotel was very unsympathetic and we will have to pay for two nights stay. I would advise booking this hotel if there is any risk your plans change. £270 Euros down the drain!

The 'bed' was in fact a small sofa-bed, the 'free' entry to the hamam in fact cost 11€, the 'pool' was the smallest we had ever seen, the electricity shorted when we turned on the kettle and we were hurried away half an hour before the official check out time because the receptionist wanted to clock off early. You might see a good deal at this hotel but don't bother!
