We stayed at the hotel as part of a cycling trip round the area. La Rochelle is a gorgeous little town...but as a result of that, hotels are expensive and I struggled to find a hotel in the centre of town within the price range I wanted to pay. Bearing that in mind, the Bordeaux did perfectly well for us. The location is excellent. The street was a bit noisy....but they can't make people be quiet for us!!
It's a very simple hotel, no real frills. Our room was a good size and was very clean. The bathroom was small...but also clean. Yes the walls were thin, but not badly so for us. Our room was next to the communal WC so there was some flushing going on...but no more disturbing noises ;)
Breakfast was decent - you could probably get a better breakfast from a cafe in the town, but it was easier for us at the hotel. What was impressive though was the storage facility for bikes. We often struggle for a hotel to find space for our two bikes - the night we stayed, there were 8 bikes booked in, and the hotel staff didn't bat an eyelid.
If we went back to La Rochelle, I'd probably try a different hotel as I suspect we could find better within the price range, but the Bordeaux was absolutely fine.
