Really well located just off Place du Verdun, down a little side street, really easy to find. Amazingly cheap bus from the airport only €1.30, Welcoming and friendly staff. We had room number 10 on the ground floor. The bed was comfy and the shower powerful. We opted out of the €9 breakfast preferring to go to the cafes round the market place for coffee and buying pastries. There is a car park which looked very secure and is right next door to the hotel. We arrived by bus so didn't need to use but parking is difficult in La Rochelle so this is an added bonus if you are driving. We loved La Rochelle and Il de Re.. Public transport was brilliant and Place du Verdun is a main hub with regular buses taking just 50 minutes to reach St Martin on Il de Re at only €5 return. We will return and would stay at this hotel again.
