        parking and central for city. Staff very helpful

        Mattress dips in middle - TV minute (supposed to be for 3 people to watch) Shower head too high and not moveable

        Excellent position for visitors to La Rochelle.Staff very helpful Car Park on site.

      • Single

        it was small. The receptionist (or owner) was really nice. My train was delayed by 2 1/2 hours, so I ended up in La Rochelle at about 11:30. Booked.net said that check in ended at 11pm. They were extremely nice and let me check in even though I was late. They spoke English, so that helped too. The receptionist called me a taxi so I could get to the airport.

        you had to pay about 7 euros for breakfast. To me, that's extremely expensive for a basic continental breakfast.

      • Single
        9.6

        Very pleasant staff, great location, and decent room make it good value. Courtyard entrance taking it off the street is also a nice feature to the hotel. Some fresh fruit for breakfast would be nice; tinned fruit on offer a very old-fashioned option! The worn carpet on the stairs spoils the overall effect a little bit also.

        no, but see above re possible improvements

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a quiet location in the old town and is a very short stroll to the harbour, shops and restaurant area.

        staff serviceminded, good location

        There was not any door to the toilett/bathroom.

        9.6

        The owner is absolutely charming and very helpful, there is somewhere safe to keep a bicycle if you happen to hire one as we did. The rooms are clean and ours had big windows onto a private courtyard. It is nice and quiet at night. A good place to stay if you wish to have a weekend trip to La Rochelle or use it as a base to cycle to Isle de Re for the day.

        Centreally located

        Access to room limited(third floor)

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        The location was excellent and the car parking was a real bonus. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the room perfectly satisfactory.

        No shower curtains!

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Excellent location, friendly staff, attractive historical building. Ideally situated for exploring the town and local amenities. A good buffet breakfast and secure car parking are available at the hotel for an extra charge.

        No lift for those with walking difficulties. Rather small area for the serving of the buffet breakfast. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room (is this common in French hotels?) and a bottle of water is very expensive if purchased from reception. A possibly dangerous electrical fault with one of the lights in the bathroom was reported but not dealt with during our stay.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient and we very much enjoyed our stay and would stay again and recommend to others.

        It would be nice to have somewhere to hang clothes (there were drawers but no hanging space for shirts, dresses etc).

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        we enjoyed our stay..we were in room 119. I think we should have been warned that we did not have a bath hroom door.. not very romantic and my partner is very shy.

      • Single
        8.2

        When I first entered the room it was a little small, though the double bed made up for this. I was a little surprised by this. The bathroom was small compact but very modern and complemented the room well. I soon realised that the room was excellent overall. The hotel was in the middle of the city and as such it fitted perfectly in with the charm of centre de ville La Rochelle. One would not want huge modern hotels in the middle of the city that destroy the skyline (as is the case in my native Ireland). The location was perfect. It blended in with the city and was very close to the bus station. A very good hotel to base oneself in to explore la Rochelle and its environs.

        I asked for a wake up call on two occasions but did not get it. My mobile broke and I had no alarm to wake me up. I was a little disappointed with this because if I had slept in and missed my flight it would have spolied my visit. (If they could tell that I was awake because the tv was on for example then I take this back)

      • Couple
        6.2

        The hotel staff where very nice and helpful with good English. The room was clean. Best of all was the location we where only 5mins walk from the center of the town and harbor.

        The hotel room walls are paper thin you will hear everything in the rooms around you and our bed was poor. So sleep will be hard if you are a light sleeper. But if you are there only for a long weekend you will put up with it as the location is great. It is a two star French hotel.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Staff were friendly and helpful.

        Should be more emphasis on the difficulty of parking. The booking did say that it was recommended that parking be reserved with the hotel in advance, but I didn't see it until too late. The cumbersome one way system and locality of the nearest public car park could have tarnished the stay if we were less mobile.
