I took a two-day break from my hiking to visit this historic seaside city. La Rochelle was crowded for a boat show and the tourisme sent me off to this agreeable but eccentric hotel, about a good 40-minute walk from the city centre. My room was 66 euro and oddly laid out, but it was correct, comfortable and quiet. The buffet breakfast was fine and the breakfast room adequate for the purpose. There is a useful pool and the exercise room was in good shape, a rarity for French hotels, and certainly for a two-star.
Reception was friendly and cheerful, but the personnel seemed to change a lot. While I spoke French, two staff members at least were able to assist me in workable English.
The seaside location is excellent and I was able to enjoy a meal at a neighbouring café. There are very few restaurants close by.
