“Clean modern hotel, friendly owners, good location in old port”
Reviewed 10 August 2010

We arrived on an early morning flight and found the hotel owners very helpful letting us check into our room as soon as it became available. Unfortunately the room we had been assigned was very small and we asked to change which we were able to do after the first night. We found our room to be very clean and modern. The hotel's location in the old port is excellent but due to its' central location it can become noisy at night time. The double windows do alot to drown out the noise. The hotel owners do not speak any English but will make every effort to communicate. One issue is that there are no English channels on the television but with so much to see around La Rochelle this is not too much of a problem. The hotel also does not have an elevator but overall we would recommend it and enjoyed our stay.

Would definitely NOT advise anyone to stay here. Room well below standard for price - old, very small, inadequate storage for clothes etc. Wallpaper peeling off wall, TV broken. VERY noisy room. Bathroom tiny - shower a mere dribble and lots of black mould in shower cubicle. Had to be out of room by 11.00 am every day. Owner unhelpful when faced with criticism. Did not accept the room was below standard. Definitely NOT worth it's 2 star rating. So uncomfortable had to cut our losses and decamp to IBIS 50 yds away. What a contrast!

Reviewed 26 June 2007

Have just returned from a 2 night stay in this hotel. It was a central location which was great but the room was increadibly dated and tiny. It was very clean though. Avoid this hotel if you have babies, they could not provide a cot and when I asked them to heat up my baby food I was told that I must not be in the hotel at 11.00am as it was when they cleaned!! how rude!! - when I also asked if I could leave some baggage as we had a late flight that was also a hastle and the eventually let us keep it there for a few hours
