Booked a room with a balcony and a garden view possibly on the ground floor. Paid extra for a balcony. Told to ask at time of booking if you require a balcony. We booked in May 2016. Hotel is lacking TLC. Won't be staying here next year!!

It was hard to find the Place, because the named of the hotel that we booked was not the same as the name on the building. A good and spacious room, but it was a bit old, most likely not renovated since the early 90´s Decent location, a bit outside of the city centre. It was an OK stay, but...

Room slept four people. Two shared a double bed, while myself and another friend had two single beds in the living room area. Beds were fine, albeit rather small, but we slept fine. 10 minute walk from the hotel to the centre of La Rochelle. Enjoyable walk in to the centre via the University Campus. Very close to the port...

Friendly staff but lacks a few things making it worthy of 4 stars. No air con is a big problem so we had to sleep with patio door open just to keep cool, also the patio door could be opened from the outside despite being locked. No in-room safe either which really should be a basic these days. Free wifi...

I was a bit disappointed. No kettle no iron in room, disappointing kitchen and late check-in was difficult. However, room was clean and comfortable and yes there was an outside pool and a small gym with a cross trainer and a multi gym in the building. Thought that breakfast represented poor value. Receptionist was helpful. No frills at this Appart'hotel...

We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed here for a week at the end of June. The accommodation is about 1.5 km from the centre, unless you take the ferry. It has a nice pool, the rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly. The apartment has a separate wc and bathroom, a kitchenette, a sitting room and bedroom....

We, 2 adults and our 2 children, had a lovely time in this accommodation. It's a nice walk to the centre and is close to the Tourist Office and the Aquarium. There are lovely views across the water that make the walk a joy. The rooms are fine, albeit a little dated, the staff are lovely and the swimming pool...

Like others I booked this hotel for its proximity to the centre and for the pool. Although it looks close to town it is a bit of a trek if you don't know the shortcuts or use the ferry but ask at reception for the best routes as they are very good. The residence is in what what was industrial...
