Positive Reviews

Excellent Location.

This hotel is well situated within easy walking distance of the port, aquarium, and the market. There are many places to eat nearby as well. You'll find a hotel, nicely situated in a lovely part of La Rochelle, on an historic street and in the middle of La Rochelle's best shopping area.

Friendly Staff.

The staff are courteous and helpful. Nothing is a bother. Many guests say they were given excellent suggestions on what to see and do, as well as the best cafes.

Hotel Exudes Elegance.

You'll be in the lap of luxury at this French hotel. The interior is tastefully decorated. Guests describe it as understated French elegance. The reception area in particular is a lovely space to relax and chat with friends.

Negative Reviews

Two Sides to the Hotel.

This hotel offers standard hotel-style rooms as well as self-catering apartments. Guests say the standard rooms are much nice. The apartments are in desperate need of some modernisation and TLC. Be sure indicate that you want a regular hotel room.

Swimming Pool Not All It Should Be.

There is indeed a swimming pool, but the pool and pool area are quite small, so it can become easily crowded. Guests say it's not as relaxing as they hoped.

Slow Internet.

The Internet connection is not only slow, but sometimes not available at all. It especially doesn't work well in the rooms.
