The worse place we have ever stayed in
The highlight of our stay was leaving
I could not say anything positive about this overpriced dump
We had to climb three flights of stairs to get to the room with a large suitcase
I thought shared bathroom was a thing of the past

Stayed: June 2014

Myself and husband stayed 3 nights, the room was very basic but very clean and bathroom was spotless. Location was perfect for us near to port and restaurants, and shops, but the one draw back was due to perfect location it was so so noisy at night. We had to close the window to try and get to sleep but the room was very warm, there was a fan in room which helped, but it also made a lot of noise.

This hotel is right in the middle of town. For location, it is excellent, close to everything.

The down side is parking as the closest parking area, Parking Verdun, is around 500 metres away. Perhaps not far, however if you are carrying bags, it could be a pain. There is no lift so perhaps that will only appeal to those who are able to carry a suit case up 1-3 storeys. We only took enough for an overnight stay and left the rest in the car.

The reception is not always manned, however someone attend quickly enough upon ringing the bell.

It would give it a solid average if you are not fussy.

We stayed at the Hotel Henri IV for 3 nights while visiting La Rochelle. I was familiar with the area after living there a few years ago, so it was important to me to find a great place in a great area. Henri IV delivered that and more. It was a very basic hotel. Nothing fancy, but it gave us restful sleeps at a great value. No elevator, but that didn't bother us. The front desk was always friendly and I felt safe and secure the whole time. I will definitely stay there again. The room was also very spacious, which was a nice surprise. The only thing is it is right by a bunch of bars, which we loved. But for those looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation might not enjoy the sounds of drunk Rochelais all hours of the night!

We stayed 3 nights(Wed, Thurs, Fri) having arrived without booking. The manager was very friendly and offered us a big room at the back (no 31) on the second floor.
The room had basic amenities including good wifi and was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We slept well on the first night. However there is a bar below and it became very noisy on Thursday and a little less so on Friday until about 2.00am. It's probably ok if you are a night owl or good sleeper but it was a challenge for us.
The location however is fantastic and if you want to be in a popular town centre the noise is probably an inevitable trade off.
We thought the price was reasonable for what we got.

We loved the location of this little hotel. It was very close to the water and restaurants. We had a good size room and a large bed which was pretty comfy! Our room looked out onto the little square which was also very cute. Overall we would recommend as a cheap stay for a night or 2.

We supposed to stay two nights but we decided to cancel because it was noisy, small (7m2), we could and the breakfast very poor.
Only one thing, the location in the heart of La Rochelle, Don't book on this place, the owner is not honest as he charge us 2 nights (95€x2=190€) + breasfast.
