Good find in La Rochelle
The hotel was conveniently located near to the old town, and an easy place to stay in La Rochelle. Near the train station made parking really easy. The people who work at the hotel are very friendly and helpful.

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.

Great location...Mostly everything else was lousy
Cons: The entire hotel was like a sauna, having trapped the heat in from the previous week. There was the tiniest of fans on the desk which was completely worthless. I had a door to a balcony and no other window, and although it was nice having a balcony, if you leave the door open, bugs come flying in since there is no screen. Even though the balcony itself was cool and comfortable no air made its way into the room even with the door ajar. There was a TV that I couldn't turn on. The entire floor smelled awful. The bathroom lights flickered. Pros: The WiFi worked fairly well and the location was fantastic! Also, the shower had good water pressure and temperature.

we stayed here on our way back to Spain. Excellent location for the harbour and restaurants. Staff very polite and accommodating. The room was clean although in need of refurbishment. We would certainly stay here again. The parking was not secure at night.
