We arrived before check in time but this was no problem, as we were immediately booked in by the very charming and helpful receptionist. This hotel is in a lovely old building and our room reflected this with its tasteful decoration, high ceilings, and large comfortable bed. Hotel Champlain was easy to find via sat nav, and parking was available either in the next door garage (bit of a steep narrow ramp) or plenty of public parking in the square next block over. The port with its bars and restaurants is just a few minutes walk through the shopping area - this has got to be one of the best places to stay in La Rochelle.
Very nice building in a relatively quiet street. Nice location 10-15 minutes away from the harbor. Breakfast free for children. Nice garden.The staff was very helpful, except when the wifi was not working properly. One of the rooms was a bit noisy.
A 3 star hotel with class. We weren’t expecting much however it delivered. Like a backdrop to a faulty towers scene the hotel was amazing and old and dated. The service was great. The garden is spectacular and the breakfast more than adequate. The rooms are very large and comfortable with large windows. Get a lower floor overlooking the back garden! We had a drink late at night in the bar and had to wait to be served by the older gentleman manning the front desk. It felt great to be sitting in one of the 3 rooms that make up the bar and once again I couldn’t help but think it was such an underrated hotel. Would stay again and again. Thank you!
Good location in the center of the city in a very nice building, room was excellent good bed, friendly and helpfull personel , breakfast was excellent; nice garden in the back of the hotel, modern and classic parts
We could not be happier with our stay here. The room was spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and getting everything out of our stay there. The gardens are an oasis of calm after a busy day in the old port. We stayed 4 nights and would stay there again if we return to La Rochelle. Our French is only ok but all of the staff spoke enough English that we didn't feel out of our depth. The bathtub didn't drain as efficiently as it could but it wasn't a big enough problem to complain about. But when we were leaving we were told that one days breakfast for the two of us had been taken off the bill because the maid mentioned that our bathtub didn't drain quickly enough! Amazing customer service!
As others have noted, this hotel is within walking distance of the port and restaurants, making it a very convenient location. The staff are all friendly and helpful, parking is available at a garage next door for a fee, and the rooms are very spacious. This was our second stay here and we would gladly return again.
Spent 3 nights in this hotel and it met all our expectations. It was so peaceful considering it was only a few minutes walk from the main tourist areas. The hotel maintains elements of grandeur but at the same time offers all the modern facilities. Breakfast was superb with lots of choice and nice to sit outside on the terrace overlooking the tranquil garden. Rooms are a good size and beds comfortable. Staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again.
Very good location, down town. Close to the high street, bars and restaurants. Friendly and helpful stuff. Nice rooms, clean and modern, just ain't small. The only issue sometimes the wifi was very slow, almost unusable.
This hotel is in a great, quiet location, its a 5 minute walk to the port and 5 minutes to the market. We've stayed here before and this year we had a lovely room overlooking the garden. Rooms are a good size and the bathroom had a shower and bath. Staff are friendly. Unusually, there's a garden at the back of the hotel and you can take breakfast on the terrace there if the weather permits. There's also a stylish bar. We haven't had breakfast there, we usually go to a local cafe as there are lots around to choose from. Good wifi.
Just back from 4 nights at this hotel. Met all expectations from previous reviewers. Rooms are spacious and well equipped if somewhat dated in style but bathroom was very modern. Bed was large and comfortable, plenty of sotrage space. Asked for room overlooking garden, but was allocated one with a street view. No problem in the end as there was very little noise. Breakfast was excellent and served in a lovely room overlooking the garden. Would certainly stay here again and totally recommend.
