Recent guest reviews

What a find! A very, very charming small hotel in the heart of La Rochelle. Renovated and very clean. Since parking is impossible in the city, the fact that this hotel has underground parking is a BIG plus. Cost was € 10 per day. The hotel is very close to the port and all of its attractions. Breakfast was very good, and featured some local products.

I liked everything about the hotel. The room was a bit too small and basic but that’s about all the cons. Located near the plaisance harbor and good areas to walk and enjoy the historic streets. I would recommend this hotel to all types of travelers

Great location in the old town, with underground parking garage which is a bonus. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast included in the room rate. Definitely a good hotel for a short stay in La Rochelle.

Spent 4 nights here over October half term. A very comfortable hotel. The room was well appointed and very clean. Found the bed very comfortable and slept well. Breakfast was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location being next to the old port was excellent. Parking was provided and was very good. I would not hesitate to stay here again. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Arrived on Friday. A word of warning!!! UPDATE your sat nav before you travel as most of the roads in La Rochelle are one way and were changed again a few weeks ago. Whole hotel clean and bright. Staff really friendly. Bed comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation. Safe in the room really handy. Parking good and a must as most of the hotels don't have any and parking in town is very difficult. Cars are obviously being discouraged, which is great for everyone. Just mind the silent bikes when out and about! Lots to do. We were here for the rugby but managed most of the attractions in three days.

Room was clean,bright, spacious and bed very comfortable. all amenities in room provided. Good selection for breakfast served in a beautiful coservatory. Hotel VERY close to Port, Bars and Eateries. Staff were very helpful.

Arrived late on Friday evening after the satnav struggled to find the car park due to the one way road system. Had booked a superior room. Good size room in the building across from the main hotel clean with a view down the street. Could not fault the staff or accommodation and was much better than I expected. Excellent location for exploring La Rochelle.

Once you've mastered the one way access, park the car (pre-book their secure garage) and walk for the rest of your stay. Excellent local restaurants and helpful reception with make the (necessary) bookings for you. Would happily stay there again.

We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it. The location is excellent, easy to find, great car parking (you need to pre-book) and located between the old town and the vibrant St Nicholas and Gabut areas - perfect. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable which all the usual facilities. The hotel is relaxed and not stuffy - just pleasant, welcoming and relaxing. We did not eat at the hotel as we preferred to explore the cafes and bakeries for breakfast, but it looked fine. The bars and cafes on the square opposite the hotel are lovely, but they do not intrude in terms of noise, in fact the hotel itself is really quiet. Highly recommended - I would stay here again.

We stayed here two nights for the boat show so we really didn't spend much time in the room...which is a good thing. The room while clean is small and stuffy with a mattress that is not very comfortable. That said they have not prétentions and thus deliver on what they advertise... Good: Friendly staff Clean Location Inexpensive Not great: Small rooms Stuffy Old style (totally lacking any charm... feels like an ibis or Formula 1 in the rooms. Breakfast About the breakfast ...within a 5 min walk you can have a much better one for about half the price.
