Where best to stay in LaRochelle

When visiting La Rochelle is the harbour area best to stay in or does it not really matter?

Thoughts please!

Anywhere in the old downtown is fine.

So is that not the harbour area?

The harbour area is the main part of the town and I guess thats what you would call downtown as well. We call it le Vieux Port and its better to stay there out of season. In July and August it can be noisy on the port you may be better off staying in over by the Aquarium or in the St Nicolas quartier, still near to the port but less street entertainment!

Thank you very much for that information. We were going to stay in the harbour area, but have now decided to stay in a quieter area - thanks, Susan

Hotel les Brises might suit. It is in a residential part of town about a 10min. walk to the old port. The main lounge has views over the harbour (as do some of the rooms). There is a very nice park nearby and a restaurant just across the road. It also has private parking.
