“Really bad hotel if you want to sleep at night”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

It was not possible to sleep at night due to the noise coming from the street outside which went on until 4 am when the dustbin lorries came. The window has to be left open as their is no air conditioning.

Reviewed 23 September 2011

POSITIVE: Bed was comfortable, ensuite and the bedroom were clean. Central location excellent, but the narrow, cobbled street was consequently loud and busy at night.

NEGATIVE: I'm used to French two star hotels and their idiosyncrasies, but this was taking the Mickey! We stayed in Room 6, for e95 a night, but the room's only clothes storage was a metal hook on the wall and a coat stand! No wardrobe, no chest of drawers. We literally lived out of a suitcase for four nights. Way too expensive, and the noise from the street, even out of season, meant the window had to stay shut all night. No aircon led to very restless nights. Definitely not good value - we didn't try the breakfast as (a) I didn't want to give the owner any more money and (b) you can get a petit dejeuner on the waterfront for around e5.

Room Tip: Avoid room 6 and ask for room NOT overlooking street

This hotel is in a great location but only accessible on foot with no parking facilities, so you have to park some distance away as all parking in the town is for max 2 hours. Very noisy at night and no air conditioning, so you are forced to either bake or open the window and try to sleep in substantial noise that went on all night to about 4am. Don't come to this hotel if you have children or want to go to bed to sleep before 4am.

Advice for a quieter, more restfulnight: sleep on a bench in the station under the announcers loudspeaker and save the E145 to go shopping or have a good dinner

Reviewed 17 August 2009

I am writing this review from the Ibis Hotel, aound the corner from the Henri IV Hotel, after having changed hotels after the first night of a three night stay in La Rochelle. The Henri IV has no air conditioning in its rooms, forcing one to leave the windows open, due to it's very central location there is alot of noise from the town which only made it possible to get to sleep at about 5 in the morning. I checked out after 1 night but was still charged for 3, but have decided it is still worth moving to another hotel. This was the level of my discomfort at the Henri IV.
