“Almost-perfect hotel in perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Stayed here with friends who had previously stayed here and raved about it. We had to agree! The room was immaculate with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom lacked soap and shower cap, but did provide liquid soap. The breakfast cost 11 euros but was worth it with a very good variety of offerings, including bacon and egg! If only there were tea-making facilities in the room!
We paid 125 euros for the room which was good value considering the central location.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a touring holiday. This hotel is in a excellent location, near to the port, bars and restaurants. Having said that because of its location in a court yard it is quiet and a restful place to stay. The service at the hotel is of a high standard, all staff were friendly and helpful, all speak english. The bar area/lounge is comfortable. The room we had was very nice with a double and single bed and a well equipped bathroom. The breakfast was plentiful with a good choice of items. There is a car park which you have to pay for, this however seems to be the norm in france. All in all like other reviewers we think this is a 'gem' and we would certainly stay again in the future.

This hotel is in an excellent central location. Within easy walking distance of everything you would hope to see in a 2 night stopover. the rooms were very clean, modern and smart and the bed very comfortable. The reception staff were more than helpful - we couldn't fault it.

We stayed at Hotel Saint Nicolas on the 4th and 5th September 2012 in room 312 as part of a flying holiday taking in Le Touquet, La Rochelle and Jersey.

The hotel was suggested to us from fellow pilots and it truly is a gem in the heart of La Rochelle. It is in a perfect location, just a short walk from the harbour and town (literally a couple of minutes) yet tucked away in its own little courtyard.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and the courtyard is a real suntrap where you can enjoy afternoon drinks and nibbles. The rest of the hotel is immaculate and modern. Breakfast was served near reception and offered lots of choice however we asked the price and was told 1 euro but actually it was 11 euro each so make sure you will get value for money as we did not.

The rooms are spotless and wifi is available throughout the hotel which was excellent for me as I required a connection for flight plans etc.

I would not hesitate in staying here again, the hotel management just need to keep up what they are doing and keep the hotel as immaculate and in my opinion it is probably the best in town!

Room Tip: Check you will get value for money for breakfast before opting in

This hotel is located in an excellent location. Just minutes to the center and the main streets, all in walking distance to the old port, to the arched streets, Hotel De Ville.... what have you, The Hotel itself is in excellent condition, the room was spacious with a little balcony facing vines and flowers. It was priced fairly considering the surroundings and the quality that we got. We just loved staying there. It also has parking, though limited, but very convenient if you are with a car in a city that parking is extremely limited.

Stayed at the St Nicholas after the recommendation from a friend. Lovely hotel in a great location and with secure parking which is great. Staff are really helpful and all speak great English. A couple of minutes walk from the port and lots of restaurants and bars.

Great location very near port and restraunts but down a side street so at night it's very quiet. The rooms are very clean as are the bathrooms. The hotel decor is modern and pleasant and the staff are helpfull. The only down side was that the rooms were a bit on the small side, but in all i would recommend this hotel and would use it again. For a shorty it's ideal.
