Ok hotel close to the train station
The hotel is located centrally and very close to the train station. The overall value however is average especially when you compare the price to fact that the rooms are not very big, the furniture is a bit dated and the bathroom a bit minimalist.

8/10 Very good

Located close to railway station and bus stops although a fair walk into town centre and not the nicest of areas at night....It is a no frills, basic hotel which provides a comfortable if small room and very basic bathroom.Very friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast buffet. You have to pay up front on arrival which is unusual.Part of a chain of hotels bearing this name.....there were lots of French people staying which gave it a very family feel. It did what we needed to do(provide somewhere to sleep and waah) but with a very basic feel.

Nice room close to Old Port
Nice little room for a family, although the staircase going to second level inside the room was super steep and scary for kids. We put some chairs at the top and some pillows at the bottom just in case.

Good place to stay in La Rochelle
We stayed here in La Rochelle over Bastille Day (14July) and France's victory at the World Cup Final (15 July 2018) and I don't think we could have chosen a better place. It s nicely situated between the railway station and the harbour / Big Wheel area and the staff were welcoming and helpful, despite all the joyous distractions outside!

Simple and clean with a great location
This is a comfortable, budget place located right next to the bustling harbor but far enough away to keep things peaceful. It's a somewhat worn, simple property but the service is very helpful and the price is great for what you are getting. Despite the slightly worn facilities, everything was kept spotless. So, a pleasant, simple place at at the right price. Perfect for family travel. One big piece of advice: If you want to get paid, and much cheaper parking in the hotel rather the surrounding garages, you need to come earlier in the day as the lot only holds about a dozen cars. Breakfast is meh, and I recommend skipping the fee and instead eating at one of the nice cafes and bakeries along the harbor.
