“Passing Through”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

We stayed at this hotel for only one night as we were on our way from Spain to Brittany.We found the hotel staff very welcoming,polite and helpful.Our room was spacious and had no complaints about the furnishing,in fact it was a very pleasant room and remarkably quite given the location of the hotel which was very close to city center and the port.In fact a wonderfull location for exploring the city,especially when you have very little time as we did.We ate breakfast in the atrium resturant which we enjoyed.The parking although an extra cost was off the road at the back of the hotel, out of sight,which with a heavily loaded vehicle suited us well.Also the free WiFi we found very useful.
I would throughly recommend this hotel for a short visit.For us it was perfect.

Room Tip: Probably rooms at the back of the hotel are the quitest.

Agree with fellow reviewer sonofdrake: strongest point of this hotel is location. It's in the city center, old town, old port. Many sites, shops and restaurants nearby.
The staff is uniformly welcoming and helpful. Special commendation for the housekeeping staff. Linens, bedding, and bathroom all impeccable.
Suitable for business or pleasure. I'd recommend it for couples, families, business travelers. Design is modern, described by reviewer Lboro as "austere"; I'd call it "calm".
By French standards, elevator is large and efficient; hallways are well-lit. Think there are handicapped-accessible rooms; the hotel clearly has made efforts to accommodate guests who have limited mobility or eyesight.
WiFi is free and works well. Hotel has a bar and a nice breakfast buffet. Traveling on business, I appreciated being able to have an after-work drink and to have breakfast early (service starts 6:30 am on weekdays).
In walking distance from the train station. There's private parking for guests. I didn't use it but point it out to guests coming by car, because parking is difficult in old town La Rochelle.

First impressions: pleasant setting in a central but quiet location. Reception area: modern, open, light, attractive. Reception staff (Hervé) welcoming, helpful and efficient.
Room: reasonably spacious, but austere. Not a drawer in the place. Had to live out of suitcases. Very limited shelf-space. Furniture: extremely basic. Beds very comfortable. Bedside lights (important for us as readers) excellent. Air conditioning worked well and quietly. Bathroom (from the point of view of two oldies): bath and shower with no grab handles. No anti-slip mat. No hooks or rings for towels. No soap dish in shower. Surface area for bits and pieces (wash bags etc.): very limited.
Safe in room – capacious and very easy to use. Power outlets accept continental and British plugs (nice touch).
Breakfast: very good buffet which included scrambled eggs and bacon.
Wi-fi: free and efficient (British hotels please note).
All in all? A perfectly acceptable place to stay, as long as you can live with the limited room facilities.

Perfectly situated in the old town of La Rochelle. Within five minutes of walking you reach the towers in the harbour, the famous aquarium or Lafayette shopping center.

Very quiet to be so central. Polite and helpful people in the respeption, breakfast was better than usual on a 3 star hotel. The room was nice, the bathroom even better. Cleaning was superb, never been on a cleaner hotel. Sleeping quality was very good, better bed than most 4 star hotels.

All in all we were very satisfied with this hotel and certainly this is the choice if we go back next year.
