Property condition

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very convenient location being close to Place sur Verdun and buses as we left car at airport.

Stayed 2 nights in Sep. 2019

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Good location for visiting the town on foot and for getting buses both into town and to Ile de Ré, airport, etc - the main bus transport hub, Place de Verdun, is 2 mins walk away. Room was clean, hotel was quiet (my room was at the back overlooking a courtyard, but the street at the front is quiet too, not much traffic as it's a side street, not a main road), staff were efficient. I was travelling solo and had a standard double room - fine for one person but would have been a bit of a squeeze for two. Bathroom was very small. No minibar or coffee/tea making facility but they do 24 hour room service on a reasonably priced basic food and drink menu.

Very average

Hotel is in the city centre. Rooms are very small and there is no kettle to make cup of tea.

Stayed 1 night in Nov. 2018

5/5 Excellent

Great little hotel, excellent location

Great place to stay on a budget, really good value for money and extremely well located. Staff very friendly and efficient, definitely will use again next time in La Rochelle.

Pros: Location, price, ambiance, staff, cleanliness

Cons: A little bit of maintenance needed to shower enclosure (mastic seal needed replacing) but not a big deal.

Location: You’ve only given me 150 characters but I could write a book about this. In summary however, up market shops, bars, restaurants of every type, budget
