Hotel Saint Nicolas
Ranked #5 of 49 Hotels in La Rochelle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We stayed in the Hotel St Nicolas for three nights at the end of last month.
The welcome at the desk was courteous, the room was spotless and, in a heatwave, the air-conditioning quiet and efficient.
The location is excellent and we overlooked a very quiet courtyard, despite being a stone's throw from the bustling Vieux Port area.
The beds were comfortable and we slept very well. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel as it seemed expensive at €11 per head, when we had a continental breakfast round the corner for €6 for two.
Otherwise, we'd recommend the hotel happily.

We book this hotel after reading very good comment as we wanted to have the best choice in La Rochelle . unfortunately we were quiet disappointed specially by the super cold welcome , so the first impression was already bad and also when we entered the room was fit with very basic amenities and very small .
we booked a room a king size bed room and we travel 3 as our daughter who is 2 and half year old always sleep with us when we travel .
we arrive at the front office and the lady at the front office Mrs A ... before to even greet us look at me and say : you are 3 , it will not be possible without giving us any alternative ... after discuss with her , she called her manager and her manager agreed to let us stay together in that room. we have traveled quiet a lot around the world and that was the first time that we had such a bad and shocking welcome , for the rest of our stay , This Mrs A never ever say hello to us during our stay even we have been very polite to her when we were going to ask some informations at the front desk . the other employes at the hotel were very kind and polite specially at the breakfast .
at 5 PM the same day we checked in , there was a fire alarm in the room , all customers rushed in the Lobby , and there was no informations from the management team , just ask everyone to go back to the rooms without apologise . as it was a malfunction of the system
quality of breakfast is great , but limited choice specially in hot dishes.
overall i believe we could find a much better value for money accommodation in La Rochelle and during our next trip we will defenetely not stay there.

This hotel is a good choice for an overnight stay in La Rochelle. It is centrally located but very quiet as it is on a small square off a busier road. It is removed the bustling tourist areas, but it is an easy walk to anywhere you might want to go. There is a good if slightly tight car park (10 euro supplement), and they gladly accept small dogs. The rooms are pleasant, clean and adequate--nothing fancy, but perfectly fine for a night, especially if you're going to be out and about. The bathrooms are smallish, but again are clean and adequate, although the toilet itself is a bit high. The decor of the hotel is utterly bland--neither pleasing nor annoying, but in any case clean and functional. The breakfast for 12 euros is average. You can get an excellent croissant at an artisan boulanger around the corner for 85 centimes. We have stayed here several times, and this time we had a slight problem with our car. The staff was extremely helpful and kind in getting us to a garage. Their graciousness was much appreciated. I highly recommend staying here and saving your money for a fine dinner at Coutanceau.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, including those on the first floor.

Walk everywhere from here and yet it is located on a quieter street. Inside is basic, clean and fine. It is not anything special but wifi was fine, lobby clean, rooms adequate, bathrooms fresh. Good hotel for La Rochelle if you are going to be out and about walking most of the day.

The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. The room was a little small but adequate (the air conditioning worked very well). The breakfast was the usual continental affair and I thought at twelve Euros a little expensive especially as you can walk five minutes down the road and get a comparable breakfast for six Euros.

Spent 3 nights here in mid June. Pleasant room with small balcony which got the morning sun.
Car park a bit of a squash. very good situation for the old port bars and restaurants.
Took bus from station to Ile de Re and back , hassle free! Did not take breakfast.
Staff pleasant.
