What our customers say
Great hotel in a fantastic location - friendly helpful staff, nice clean well equipped room. Would recommend
"Fantastic location, well managed hotel"
We've paid the premium price for the Prestige room with harbour view on the 3rd floor and it paid off. The view of the harbour towers was just fantastic. The room was large and the extra window frames inside isolated the street noise in the late evening and from the excessive heat in the afternoon. Air conditioning was absolutely quiet and working fine. Ergonomic bed for a good sleep. Renovated bathroom. Friendly staff at the reception - we felt welcome. We haven't gone for the optional tray breakfast because of the Covid-19 limitations, but there was a great breakfast opportunity at the nearby Café Leffe. The only negative point is the parking - need to carry you luggage about 250 metres from city parking to the hotel. Otherwise can recommend it - we would come back!
"Nice hotel with nice staff "
Excellent stay and welcome as well as efficient check out with smile and service I recommend warmly Breakfast was nice and also there the smile was not just a facade but warm and sincere
Pleasant stay,hotel well situated for all amenities of La Rochelle.
I knew that I had Made a very good choice about the location for the best view close to the towers of the Old Port and amid many good restaurants, but didn’t know how difficult was to access the less expensive parking Vieux Port Ouest. Finally made it!
"Lovely hotel right on the water"
We had a great time at this hotel and La Rochelle in general. The location cannot be beat. The room was comfortable, if a little small, but given the location that is more than understandable. The staff were all fantastic. I highly recommend and will happily stay here again if we return to the area.
Was ideal for our purpose. A one night stay before our flight home the next day. Great location on the port, easy access to the town and very comfortable facilities
"Tremendous view! Right in the heart of things."
Couldn't have chosen a better location for enjoying La Rochelle.
"A special birthday break"
Parking close by. Check in was easy. Location could not be bettered. Could do with some refurbishment in some area's. Breakfast was too expensive with more choice and value just outside the front door.
The hotel is delightful and the staff were utterly charming and helpful
"Beautiful location! "
We actually booked this hotel by chance. What a fi nd! AMAZING location, with beautiful views over the harbour. The hotel is very clean & modern. They provide everything you might need, from shampoo & razors, to bathrobes & slippers. We sadly only had one night in La Rochelle but wish we could have stayed longer. La Rochelle is wonderful. Plenty to look at & lots of great bars & restaurants. We hope to come back one day!
"2 nights break "
Room was a good size. As there’s not much hanging space a few more hooks would’ve been useful. Impressed with the windows as they really blocked out a lot of noise.
Companies and organisations can also enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the La Rochelle port from the conference room on the fourth floor. It is air-conditioned and equipped with everything you need to plan your conferences, meetings, training sessions and other group events. It also has a patio where you can get a bracing breath of fresh marine air as you work or take a well-deserved break.
