Nice looking picture of hotel on its website attracted us, but have to say it doesn't live up to first expectations. Location of hotel is good and within walking distance of the old port and all there is to see there. However, rooms are pretty basic and rather small, although bed was comfortable and room clean. Air con in the room worked fine, which was good considering the temperatures were fairly warm, although it was quite noisy. Bathroom was small but adequate, although the shower was very small and had mould around the edges of the shower tray (yuk), and there was nothing to attach the shower head to, so you had to hold it in your hand to shower/wash hair. Parking for the car was in a public car park about 5 minutes drive from the hotel, which was OK (given the central location of the hotel it could forgiven for not having on site parking). Staff friendly enough, in particular the guy on at night who made us coffees and teas at 11pm and let us take table and chairs out into the paved area at the side of the hotel, when we couldn't find anywhere else nearby that was open/would serve us. All in all, it was adequate enough for the 2 nights we spent there, and La Rochelle itself made up for it....great atmosphere and lively in the old port area in the evenings.
