Beautiful hotel and ideally located. Very comfortable rooms with a modern finish. Checkin whilst efficient was much later than advertised but the upgraded room was kind.
The square by the hotel. Great food options, if a little expensive.

Cannot recommend it more highly - loved it.
The hotel is really at the centre of everything, but down a quiet side street. Our room was very comfortable with nice quiet A/C. The breakfast buffet had everything you could possibly want and more. The tables were cleared, cleaned and re laid quickly. All of the staff were very helpful.

Nice stay - thank you
Very nice centrally located hotel in the old town. We enjoyed our stay - some minor points for improvement and/or to help other guests.....the on-site car parking is VERY expensive at 13 euros per night (we had an expensive room too, so the overall stay was much more than we would have liked). We had a nice room with a balcony, but if you want a quiet stay, please note this is right next to a noisy elementary school with children screaming in the playground from 8am and often throughout the day (if you want to return to the hotel for a rest during the day, it is incredibly noisy in these rooms with balcony at the back of the hotel). So best to ask for a quiet room at the front if you want a quiet stay. We were two people and just ONE small bottle of water left for us for the entire two night stay. We were able to ask for more, but were told ONE bottle is the norm (which we thought was a little stingy for the high price of the room we had). Also one final point, the pillows were very flat and not comfortable for us, so we wanted to use the extra pillows provided in the wardrobe, however, these were not supplied with any covers, so we declined to use them for hygiene reasons. But overall a very nice stay with very nice staff. We loved the location just a couple of minutes walk from the port and many restaurants to choose from.

Mixed feelings!
La Rochelle is a great place and the Hotel Saint Nicolas is excellently located near the old port. The spaces in the underground parking lot were rather small, as was our room! It overlooked a small square with lots of restaurants, which were noisy into the small hours! We therefore had to keep the window closed - but, because it was early October, the air conditioning had been switched to the winter setting (heating only). One other little niggle - the toilet was set so close to a wall on one side (the gap was barely 100mm) that it was -er- uncomfortable to use!

Very well located, one minute away from the old port action and vibrant life; yet, recessed and calm. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Onsite parking paid for 13 euros/night. Breakfast was very good. My room did not have a bath but a spacious bathroom and shower. The mattress and bedding could have been better. Definitely a place I recemmend.
