What a fab stay! We stayed here last year and returned to this hotel in La Rochelle this year. It was basic (but that is what you are paying for), fresh, clean but better than the usual Ibis. We had a set of sliding doors that led into a little courtyard with chairs and a table. That was a lovely...

I booked this hotel based on some of the comments posted on this site which commented on the quietness of the location, something that we have not always experienced in French hotels particularly in town centre locations. We had travelled by train to La Rochelle and it's about a ten minute walk from the station and also very close to...

A very modern and slightly weird interior design in such an historic setting sadly missing in such basic facilities as a restaurant. After a long hard day at work I simply want to eat then sleep and not have to wander around town looking for sustenance. On the plus though, the shower and wifi was good but the rooms and...

Dear WKT02, First of all i would like to thank you for sharing your feelings regarding your stay in our hotel. Indeed, we don't have any restaurant in the hotel being within five mn walks from many of them with a large choice. We do have a bar serving "en-cas" such as croque monsieur and few pre-coocked dishes. Our room...

Stayed here on a trip with my dad to La Rochelle. We liked the elements of style that are built into the hotel design. It's not bland like some budget chain hotels. We shared a twin room which was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty: very good value. The staff were very helpful with all our questions.

Rooms compact but very clean. Beds were comfortable and shower powerful. Staff friendly and welcoming. Great location and met all our requirements for city break as very close to the old port, restaurants etc. secure parking nearby for 7euros per day and tickets can be bought from reception.

What impressed is though was the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff- Jerome in particular who have use great advise on how best to spend our limited time and gave us some great restaurant recommendations.

This hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring La Rochelle, easy to find as we arrived by car, parking quite close. Friendly staff and the rooms are what you would expect from Ibis. Would defiantly call again on my next trip, very close to the harbour and many fine restaurants.

A very clean hotel centrally located down a quiet side street. Newly refurbished and the bed very confortable. The room was small, especially the bathroom, but fine for a short stay.

Good hotel with all amenities. Rooms and bathrooms are small but very clean. It didn't bother us because we were out exploring all day. No attached parking but a good rate for hotel guests at the public car park. Excellent location. Able to walk to the old port and all the places to visit.
