Très déçue par la salle d'eau qui était une cabine dans laquelle on pouvait aller aux toilettes en prenant sa douche et en se brossant les dents. Vraiment très petit et moisi dans les coins. Literie correcte.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Proche de la Rochelle"
Rien a redire, si ce n'est qu'il vous faudra une voiture pour vous deplacer en toute tranquilité. Les sans voitures, choisissez un hotel en centre ville, mais la nuit sera minimum 2x plus chère.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
pour une nuit passe encore, si on fait l'impasse sur les wc ds la douche plus précisément a 10cm de la douche....on peut se laver les dents et se doucher en même temps...pratique ou pas!Quelques joints également moisi. La literie est horriblement dure et les coussins...sont en fait des bouts de coton dans un tissus...tout simplement affreux. un drap […] et une couverture epaisse d'un ou deux mm pour dormir...pratique quand il fait 5 degrés dehors!!!!!

nous avions une chambre au 2ème étage et il faut monter les valises par les escaliers,car pas d'ascenseur . donc,il est préférable de prévoir avant ce dont on risque d'avoir besoin. douche pas fermée donc avec le wc !.... au petit déjeuner les croissants étaient de la veille !... pour le même prix. autrement pas trop mal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Balladin à la Rochelle"
L'hotel se trouve dans une zone commerciale, a a peine 10 minutes en voiture de La Rochelle, de Chatelaillon... Le personnel est vraiment tres tres agreable. Le petit-déjeuner est gargantuesque. Il y en a pour tous les gouts ! Les chambres sont confortable. Je recommande vivement cet hotel !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fonctionnel et proche"
Hotel relativement bien situé, mais pendant cette période de grand froid, les chambres donnent directement dehors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"HOTEL BALADIN LA ROCHELLE"
Une seule critique : l'insonorisation n'est pas à la hauteur de ce qui est indiquée. Demandez une chambre sur l'arrière de l'hôtel, présence d'une rocade relativement bruyante jusqu'à 21 heures.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It is what it is......."

.........and I admit my heart sank a little as we checked in. We'd travelled by car to La Rochelle for a couple of days look-around of the area and just wanted a basic, reasonable-cost hotel for two nights. Hotels in La Rochelle itself tend to the pricey as it's a popular tourist destination and a natural stop-off point for places like the Isle de Re. Basic and reasonable cost was what we got. There's a large car park at the rear of the hotel. Access to rooms is by corridors which are open to the outside (i.e. no doors - I imagine in winter the wind whips through the place a treat) but the room doors are solid and, as advertised, pretty much soundproofed. We had no worries about security. The rooms are small and very basic indeed - not even a kettle. Space for using a pc at a desk is limited. The TV, a good quality Samsung flatscreen, shows only French free-to-air channels. Then again, we are in France! The bed has a foam mattress and is fairly firm and comfortable. Sound from the dual carriageway a 100m away can be done away with simply by shutting the window - again, excellent soundproofing. There's no aircon, but we had no problem during our September visit. Our room was spotlessly clean and the maid service did a great job the next morning. The small ensuite bathroom is excellent. A really good shower and again, spotlessly clean. If you were wanting to impress your wife / girlfriend / partner / whatever with a romantic weekend away you wouldn't (or shouldn't!) choose this hotel; if you're just wanting a functional place to break a journey, it's good. Breakfast is good value at €7.50 for a help yourself bread-roll and croissant buffet - good value compared with the rip-off prices in cafes along the harbourside in La Rochelle, anyway! I didn't use the (smallish) swimming pool but it looked clean - and cold. Some stuff worth knowing: I happen to think that tagging the hotel surroundings as an industrial estate gives an incorrectly critical impression. There's a mix of retail outlets, franchise car dealers, offices, yes, a builders' merchant, and other hotels. Nothing scary here. Rooms at the hotel are on three floors with no lifts. If you have a problem with stairs, try for a ground floor room. Rooms which are odd-numbered are at the front of the hotel away from the dual carriageway and so may be quieter (but the soundproofing really is as billed). Conversely, even-numbered rooms are at the back overlooking the car park. If you're travelling by motorbike and feel more comfortable being able to keep an eye on it, go for an even room number. In fact, if you're a biker and can get any one of room 12, 10, 8, 6 or 4 on the ground floor you can park your bike right under the window. We really didn't feel that there was any particular security issue, though. WiFi implementation is good and the service runs a good data speed. Logon doesn't require your email adddress although it's asked for. With Windows and Android the server recognises the device after first logon, and asks if you want to reconnect. With iPad (of course, Apple being a law unto itself as usual) you need to create a new logon each time. There are several restaurants nearby and just down the road (a few minutes walk) a really good Chinese restaurant which does an all-you-can-eat buffet each evening. Have a two-minute drive round on arrival to find the other restaurants and determine the walking distance. A bit worryingly, by the time we checked out of this place I was starting to feel quite fond of it........ :-)
"OK if you have an idea what to expect"

having made the mistake of reading reviews after making my booking, I agree that this hotel is basic, with small rooms, outside the town on an industrial estate next to a motorway. However, our room was spotlessly clean, freshly decorated and with a nice shower room. The pool was well maintained. The free wifi worked very well. Bed a good size. So if you have a car and want a cheap base with a summer swimming pool, it is OK. Very good Chinese buffet restaurant Asia within walking distance.
"OK for one night."

We had to drive to the tourist office in La Rochelle in order get directions to this hotel as I'd forgotten to pack the GPS Navigator. It's located about 10 minutes from La Rochelle in Aytre driving in the direction of Poitiers. In an industrial estate, though quite a spacious one, it wasn't too difficult to find after being given directions from the tourist office, though it would have been otherwise. Ample car park and the receptionist staff were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are in concrete blocks with open walkways, a bit like social housing flats (HLMs) and were small though functional. The bathroom was like a plastic pod and had restricted room for movement, though OK for one night. Breakfast room (by reception) was good and there were tables outside. The buffet was adequate and the staffing team and management were superb with excellent hospitality skills. We bought our tickets from them for the Aquarium at La Rochelle which is where we headed after breakfast and checking out. Overall this hotel was great value and it was what we wanted for our 36 hours in La Rochelle. I was a lot cheaper than staying in town, which in our opinion was over-rated and over-priced.
"Value for money"
05/27/12 Gary-and-Viv STOKE MANDEVILLE
Not used to motel type hotels so having a bedroom door opening to the outside world was disconcerting but the friendliness of the staff was reassuring. The room was spacious, (we were upgraded to a family room), clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentifull and varied, (not English of course). excellent value for money.
"Basic One Night Stop - Not a Tourist Location"
09/20/11 Sue S Cornwall
Our Sat Nav was on strike and we found this place horrendously difficult to find. We actually were near it once but turned around as we did not expect it to be situated at the far end of an industrial estate hugging the motorway. That said, the staff were very polite and helpful, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The bathroom was actually a very small wet room with the wash basin outside in the bedroom, but it was ok if you put the bathmat outside of the wet room door - it was actually quite a clever use of space and the shower worked well. The room was clean and the breakfast was good too. We only stayed one night, which was fine. The hotel was obviously set up for business travellers rather than tourists. The swimming pool looked nice but we didn't have time to try it out as we spent so long trying to find it. We stayed in nicer places on this trip for around the same cost.
"Basic, out of town accommodation"
08/30/11 Jessica K Auckland Region, New Zealand
Good, clean and basic accommodation close to La Rochelle and beaches. Good value for money, as when looking for accommodation in La Rochelle itself, it seemed quite pricey. There is a swimming pool here which we didn't use, but would be good for keeping kids entertained. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was basic and buffet style, although perhaps slightly overpriced for what it was. The croissants and baguettes were not the freshest. On-site parking facilities were great. This hotel did us just fine for our 3 days in La Rochelle, however it is only good if you have a car. We had to drive everywhere, even to dinner every night as there are no restaurants close by to walk to. Be aware this hotel is in an industrial area - you would not stay here for the location! The bathroom was very annoying as there was no curtain or door on the shower, so EVERYTHING got wet when you had a shower - the toilet, the floor and the vanity. It was honestly the most ridiculous design we had ever seen!

La photo est vendeuse sous un beau soleil levant mais ne vous y fiez pas...L'accueil sympathique ne rattrape pas une prestation indigente en terme de qualité/prix ! Chambre glauque à souhait : jaune pisseux au mur, pas de déco, éclairage insuffisant, dessus de lit et rideaux bien vieux et d'un marron beurk, sol ayant vécu, couchage à la limite de l'acceptable (sommier qui couine) Mais le pire c'est la partie sanitaire : une douche et le sol de votre chambre est trempé car il n'y a pas de rideau, alors imaginez si on en prend 2 de suite...Les couloirs, de nuit et par temps pluvieux et venteux, sont sordides, sales et émaillés de flaques d'eau...Après une nuit dans un Campanile et une autre dans un B&B, rude fin de vacances...
"Pratique et bon accueil"
08/14/14 floetcie Redon, France
Hôtel à proximité de la Rochelle, pratique pour y passer une ou deux nuits. Petit dej aupres de la Piscine agréable. Personnel très sympathique. Salle de douche rénovée, dommage que la douche ne soit pas isolée par une cloison ou un rideau car inondation assurée.
"Bien loin d'égaler son prix"
07/14/14 HAYDANE D Podensac, France
Nous y avons séjourné ce week end à loccasion des FRANCOFOLIES. Pour 70€ et de belles photos annoncées, une piscine chauffée, une salle de bain privative nous avons une micro chambre, poussièreuse, des moississures dans la salle de bain, des oreillers aussi plats qu'une couverture et une piscine non chauffée. 1 torticoli et 1 lumbago plus tard et delestés de 140€ (2 nuits) + 32€ de petit déjeuner pour les deux jours nous nous sommes promis de ne jamais y revenir. Un cauchemar ! La seule chose appréciable était le calme pour dormir.

J ai pris cet hôtel dans le cadre du travail pour raison financière. Moisissures dans la salle de bain, literie minimale, ménage approximatif et insonorisation nulle car la fenêtre cassée. Bref limite pour un hôtel.
