Ibis budget La Rochelle Centre
Ranked #30 of 49 Hotels in La Rochelle
Reviewed 31 March 2013

The location of the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the main quay area of La Rochelle but with parking at the hotel it is not a problem. It's in a very accessible area and the walk into town is through good streets. I would stay here again.

You had to pay with card before you could enter, so therefore when we saw the state of the room, the thread bare carpet leading to it we should have known, we could not set foot in the room it smelt so badly of stale cigarette, we found someone to speak to about it, we could not get a refund even though we did not stay a minute longer! They are upgrading it and the photo's are not of this Hotel, if anyone knows how we can get our money back please tell us.

Was in La Rochelle to run the 10km race and had left it very late to book, the hotel was well located only about 10 minutes walk from the old centre of town and 10 minutes from the SNCF station. Nothing fancy but it does what it says on the tin.

This is the 2nd Etap that we have stayed in on our trip that we have had to check in via the booking number as no-one on reception. This was mid afternoon. We went out to visit La Rochelle and to eat and when we returned we were unable to park in the car park. 4 motorbikes had been allowed to use up 2 to 3 bays instead of parking 2 in a bay (they were chained together so obviously travelling together. 2 car owners had not parked in their bays properly which left only a small space to squeeze a car in and we couldn't get ours in. Nor could anyone else as this bay stayed empty all night. The hotel staff should have contacted the owners to ask them to park properly. We arrived back at 9.15pm so no-one on reception again to enable us to pay 4e for secure parking behind the hotel so we had to leave a fully loaded car outside in the street. Thankfully nothing happened but that's not the point. I got the distinct impression that not all the cars were owned by the hotel guests.

The room we were allocated was alongside the railway so not conducive to a peaceful stay with freight and passenger trains trundling by. This Etap has not been refurbished yet, well not the room we were allocated anyway.

There were no lifts, and service by any staff was only available during certain hours of the day - I think it was between 5 - 9pm (for one to purchase a private parking slot). So if you have many pieces of luggage, good luck with the stairs.

Not too useful, as that was the golden hours we would be out (especially in summer) having a stroll, dinner, and everything else except going back to the hotel to purchase a private parking slot.

Bathroom are almost similar to that of aircraft cabin looks, of course this is slightly bigger.

At first sight, the location of this hotel is strange, surrounded by a mixture of residential and business, outside of town. When you settle in, however, you find it is a nice quiet leafy spot(occasional train noise, but not a major problem). The hotel public areas and the rooms are clean and tidy and all you need. When you find the route to the town centre, it's only an easy 10 min walk. Ask for directions. I found the automatic entry system instructions difficult to follow but it worked in the end. Avoid arriving late at night after reception is manned, because you may not get in. I would definitely recommend this hotel as good value for money.
