      Perfect location and very nice staff. I appreciated most of all that the hotel is very quiet at night, or at least my room was. It was a pleasant and comfortable stay.

      Very friendly staff. Excellent service.

      The room rate I was actually charged(99.00 EUR)differed from the reservation rate.

      Location is fantastic... Right on the harbour, with beautiful view of the 3 towers. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially in dealing with my pigeon-French! The pool is great, with plenty of chairs available. Our room was always spotlessly clean.

      The decor is a bit tired... Stipple-rendered walls and worn carpets. Tv didn't have any international channels. No tea/coffee facilities in the room.

      This is a modern hotel in a prime position close to the harbour and esy walking to the shops , museums and market etc. Cost of a taxi from the airport was a reasonable 15eu. We had light airy and spacious room with a terrace. The people who were on the desk were all friendly and very helpful.

      The restaurant was very limited in its choice of meals. The breakfast was very overpriced. It would have been good to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room since these and any snacks were not available in the hotel - a pity.

      We enjoyed our stay. I would probably rate it as 2.5 star rather than three but there is a pool there. We stayed in a room at the rear of the hotel overlooking the pool. It was very quiet which was great. Bed linen changed a few times during 7 night stay. An excellent location right on the quay and near the aquarium - worth a vist. Didn't have breakfast 14 euros too expensive but there are cafes nearby with continental breakfast for 5 euros. Didn't have dinner in restaurant as preferred to eat out in the different restaurants in the town. La Rochelle is generally expensive. Recomment restaurant ludoti. Hotel Staff very helpful and pleasant.

      There was nothing that I disliked but felt breakfast expensive.

      Made to feel welcome and good location. Close to everything. Underground secure parking well worth the money, although at a hotel 2 minutes walk away.

      Expensive for the state of decor, it is a bit old fashioned, I guess you are paying for location. Breakfast over priced. We noticed on our way out of town a cafe where breakfast for 5 euros.

      The staff were really lovely and friendly and couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay in La Rochelle.From the people on reception to the chamber maid and dining room staff all were friendly and cheerful. Our suit was very comfortable with a lovely view of the harbour. We could walk everywhere and we would stay here again if visiting the area.

      Air-conditioning was not working in the room. Found decor to be poor.I Would place this hotel in the 45/60 euro bracket per night not 102 euros for a very basic room.

      Nothing.Very bad value,The hotel needs a complete revamp.Room was very poor,shower did not work, No bedside lamps. €10 to park your car in there car park as it is impossible to park anywhere near the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel other than for location.

      Room was large and comfortable

      I think the bed and the bed linen could do with a refresh.

    • Older travelers

      The location was super. Very close to the harbour and street entertainments at night. We enjoyed the poolside tables for reading etc.

      There was only one chair in the room - should be two. Breakfast poor value - no muesli, terrible machine coffee, the hot food was awful, marmalade always hidden away. In town, we bought a very good 3 course meal in the evening for less that we paid for the breakfast. Also, when we booked it was advertised as 13 euros, but we were charged 14 on departure.
