Good 7.8 From 91 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Simple and clean with a great location
This is a comfortable, budget place located right next to the bustling harbor but far enough away to keep things peaceful. It's a somewhat worn, simple property but the service is very helpful and the price is great for what you are getting. Despite the slightly worn facilities, everything was kept spotless. So, a pleasant, simple place at at the right price. Perfect for family travel. One big piece of advice: If you want to get paid, and much cheaper parking in the hotel rather the surrounding garages, you need to come earlier in the day as the lot only holds about a dozen cars. Breakfast is meh, and I recommend skipping the fee and instead eating at one of the nice cafes and bakeries along the harbor.

Nice room close to Old Port
Nice little room for a family, although the staircase going to second level inside the room was super steep and scary for kids. We put some chairs at the top and some pillows at the bottom just in case.

Good place to stay in La Rochelle
We stayed here in La Rochelle over Bastille Day (14July) and France's victory at the World Cup Final (15 July 2018) and I don't think we could have chosen a better place. It s nicely situated between the railway station and the harbour / Big Wheel area and the staff were welcoming and helpful, despite all the joyous distractions outside!

La Rochelle stop over
Great location, central to everything. Sadly Hotel car park was full so we had to use a public car park which cost us 18 euros instead of 11 euros at the hotel.
