very basic but cheap and easy walk to la Rochelle and with bars cafes and restaurants within a few steps of hotel as close to university rooms clean and functional but a bit grim
Simple, central to La Rochelle
The lady at the hotel found out that a mistake was done with our booking and that no room for 5 people were available for us. She rapidly found a solution and we got a room for the night. No assurance that our booking is still ok when we arrive at the hotel.
the room was clean. there was spare bedding. very easy to check in. liked having the code in place of a key inconvenient that the reception is unavailalbe between 11-17h as would have liked to leave a bag there during the morning.
The close proximity to the centre of town, the marina and the Aquarium was wonderful, all within walking distance. Room was very clean and good value. Good for an overnight stopover. It was very impersonal, locked out until reception opened at 5pm and then, on check in, was issued with a code number which opened the front door. More like a boarding house as opossed to a hotel. Sensory lights in corridors a little creepy.
Hotel was within walking distance of centre and the fact that it had free parking was a plus for us. Very basic but clean. Receptionist kept answering phone and just asked for name and money up front for stay. No interaction at all.
esay to get to, clean and tidy good value breakfast none
the location was too expensive for the rooms offered which were very basic.
The restaurant I didn't know abaut parking in this hotel
Excellent location on the quayside. Polite & helpful staff. Sometimes noisy night club behind hotel.
Yes, we liked this hotel. It's loceted very good.
The location was super. Very close to the harbour and street entertainments at night. We enjoyed the poolside tables for reading etc. There was only one chair in the room - should be two. Breakfast poor value - no muesli, terrible machine coffee, the hot food was awful, marmalade always hidden away. In town, we bought a very good 3 course meal in the evening for less that we paid for the breakfast. Also, when we booked it was advertised as 13 euros, but we were charged 14 on departure.
The location No
Spacious room and en suite. Nice comfortable bed. We were on the fifth floor behind the main hotel building, so it was quiet but we could still see the sea over the rooftops which was lovely. Swimming pool was nice and deep with amazingly comfortable seat shaped lilos. Perfectly located beside the harbour, very close to restaurants, the town and bus and train stations.
Location was brilliant-very central but peaceful at the same time. Overlooking the port, close to the train station, aquarium, local amenities. Car rental on your doorstep. Staff very helpful.
The hotel was very good and the restaurant... would have liked some help with luggage on departure ny mother is 88 and I tweaked my bag lugging the suitcases around to the car.!
Central location 1 hotel was all locked up when we arrived at 2115,with a phone number to ring on the door.2.breakfast poorly supervised had to ask as milk etc kept running out.
Great location, next to central market but quiet street. Nice older place with updated (but small as usual in France) rooms. Noon checkout time and very good breakfast till 11 a.m.on a Sunday! Nothing, really was great although no elevator or air con could be an issue for some people.
Old style French townhouse/hotel. A lot of charm but not everyones cup of tea. Couldnt get satellite tv.
Clean and tidy Room was a bit small for three people
Hotel close to Old Town Both rooms on third floor, no lift Double room very small. Bed hard and 'squeeky'. En suite was separeted from bedroom by a curtain. Shower head had to be held as only in one position. Single room extremely small. No air conditioning. Bedsheet stained
Would highly recommend this hotel . Staff were welcoming, knowledable and v helpful about the region. Got the romantic family room which had lovely balcony . Children loved squeezing their own orange juice in morning. Location perfect .safe and cheap carpark just around the corner. no
Excellent location. None.
The staff where pleasent and helpful. For the money u pay the hotel should be clean and it was not, when u walked up the stairs there was a smell from the old carpets.
Very good traditional French hotel. Fantastic breakfast,homemade jams ,great patisserie ,good location centre of town but quiet.5 mins walk to seafront .No parking at hotel but secure public parking only a minute away. Would highly recommend(no air con but good old French shutterinhg does the job)
La Rochelle is a great place for a family holiday,and the hotel is well placed to explore the old town and port with beaches nearby. Great restaurants and atmosphere. One problem. Although the hotel staff were friendly the basin in our room was blocked and in spite of asking to fix it a number of times the problem was not resolved. This meant that the basin was unhygienic and often couldn't be used.
Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Clean and good location. It was a shame about the noise from the building works opposite. Also, the shower door seal leaked which could lead to long-term floor damage.
location was excellent within easy walk of town but quiet room was quite small and finishes were basic
Very comfortable. Pleasant helpful staff. Very convenient location for walking into Old Port and town. Away from the traffic so quiet
The room was modern and clean, the location was excellent. Where do we start, after staying in a Mecure before I know them to be a great hotel chain to use. However this was not my experience with this one. The rooms aircon was broken, not enough toilet paper and tea facilities were poor. Male resturant staff were rude, unhelpful and very snotty. We decided to eat in the hotel and the food was not value for money and quality was disappointing.
geographical situation within the city was excellent
The staff were helpful and friendly. Having secure parking facilities a great benefit. A standard room with double bed was fine for me as a single occupant. However, for two people I imagine the room size might feel on the small side.
The hotel has recently had a makeover and everything is very clean and new with nice colours and fabrics in the room. It is in a great location 5 min from town centre but quiet in the evenings. Parking is good. Staff very friendly. Nowhere to sit outside unfortunately.
The fact that the hotel is very central to all amenities - enjoyed the breakfasts, although expensive (would book room only next time). Loved being by the harbour and the staff were very friendly. Will return again. Free parking excellent !! Breakfast too expensive.
Pleasant, comfortable. Good breakfast.
Good service, situation, close to everything, view No
The location worked beautifully. Staff was friendly. It is very loud at front but needed to keep windows open for ventilation, and the shower water temperature fluctuated dramatically.
None Over-priced and very noisey at night.
Very good location
Excellent and friendly service including late check in and allowing bags to be kept after check out. Clean and recently upgraded , bed very comfortable. Very central, delightful old hotel. None
Location is fantastic There is a very noisy bar next to the hotel - not the hotel's fault, but noise until 3 / 4am
Location, step out the door and you are in the heart of La Rochelle. Parking is well away from hotel, basic rooms and as it is very limited size inside there are no lifts to get to the rooms. If you are in any way restricted climbing stairs then this hotel is definately off your list.
Kindly staff, nice location for sightseeing nothing
the welcome arrival is great by giving us such good info about the place and accommodating nothing!!!!!
Location for ease of access to all areas of the town
Mycket fräscha rum. Bra läge nära hamnen men ändå med lugnt läge. Designen känns modern och elegant. Frukosten är inte prisvärd men det finns gott om alternativ inom gångavstånd så det är inget stort problem.
Mycket trevligt bemötande av service vänlig personal. Väldigt trevliga och rena rum med hög standard. Lite info om parkeringsmöjligheterna och ingen alls om höjden in garaget, vilket var ett problem då vi hade takbox. Dock löste personalen detta väldigt bra då vi fick stå precis utanför entrén.
Very well placed, central hotel with plenty to see and do on the doorstep. Helpful staff, clean rooms (basic but comfortable), booked a triple room and got 2 interconnected doubles for same price which was good. Would book again for city break. Some rooms and shared areas looked dark and pokey.
Very helpful staff and excellent service. Good in-room facilities. Air conditioning a real bonus. Only limitation was a lack of a safe in reception large enough to take a laptop.
the location was excellent..the room was quite .....a good hotel in a beautiful city,but not for a week room was basic...no wardrobe..compact if not small rooms
Hotel in an excellant position - Ideal for the various boat trips, shops and a lovely harbour location together with all the street entertainment. Unfortunately there was an undesirable fishy smell in the lobby and lift areas which obviously eminates from the fish resteraunt next door.
Location is the best we have ever tried.In the middle of everything.
Jätte stor rum med alla faciliter. Riktigt lägenhet med 2 jätte stora rum. Perfekt när man reser med familjen. Väldig trevlig personal. 5 min från flygplatsen med bil. Lite ljud med en fläkt.
Lungt hotell, trevlig personal. Inget duschdraperi. Inga internationelle TV kanaler. Ingen minibar.
Central och lyxigt hotell till ett bra pris. Supertrevlig personal. Inget att klaga på
the location, in the middle of the centre
A spacious appartment in a central location Poor quality breakfast
A beautiful building with lovely antique furniture, very close to old port and lots of restaurants, lovely ambience would stay here again
A basic hotel in a good location.
Clean, comfortable hotel. Efficient helpful staff. Good parking
No on-site parking.
Most important is the fantastic situation in the old town. Can't be better. Well for that price, I resquest a personal toilet in my room
Location of hotel couldn't have been better, just around the corner from the old port and lots of restaurants and shops but just far away enough that there wasn't much noice and had a great sleep! Room was pretty basic but the bed was comfortable and the bed linen was clean. Rooms were basic and tv had only French channels.
Very convenient location in the heart of old La Rochelle, right by the old port. Very clean, very friendly, very quiet. One of the best old town hotels I've stayed at in France.
Shower & toilet facilities were very good & room was clean & presentable. The third bed was only a sofa bed which was't adequate & the bed sheet was of poor quality & had a corner strap that was broken. The room could have been larger for 3 people sharing - I.e a seperate room/area for the double bed. Also the Free car parking was full so we had to park in the Public car park by the beach & pay. The map directions for the free parking wasn't large enough; making them difficult to find.

Hotel recently redecorated in chic neutrals, comfortable, clean, very close to port and town centre. Choice of breakfast or just coffee and croissant. Double windows keep out street noise but then stuffy as no aircon. Dodgy hips avoid 3rd floor as no lift.
reasonable basic hotel in a good location.
The convenient location close to the old section of town and the promonard/port and seaside.
Good position, easy walk to all sites.Well refurbished, clean and spacious rooms. Near Aquarium with handy parking. Fantastic triple glazing...no sound from outside. Well pleased.
Very good location close to old port and shops/restaurants. The hotel has very recently been refurbished and so is very clean and fresh. Proprietors are friendly and breakfast good value.
Quite room,Clean,modern. Would have been good to have a british channel on tv.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the buffet breakfast had a good choice of food. The hotel is within 15 minutes walk from the old harbour and town so good for access
It was conveniently located near La Rochelle Center, and parking was available.
No frills, but it is a clean, modern hotel and the location is good. We would stay there again. Parking is a bit tight, but thats about it.
Nice room, comfortable beds, parking-place and good value for money. A busy road outside the hotel
Clean room and lovely bathroom. Also a very quiet location. The hotel lacked atmosphere and a small bar area would have been nice.
reasonably priced hotel for the area clean and modern but quite clinical. Two great restuarants opposite hotel Location relating to the town and beach. A good 20min walk from main center no good for anyone with walking dificulties
The hotel was excellent in every way. Would like more pricing options for breakfast. We normally breakfast on croissants and coffee. Euro 8 per head is expensive for this! We have our breakfast away from the hotel for Euro 4.50 total!
very nice rooms. extras: coffee, tea + biscuits in room. shampoo. -
Excellent breakfast and very friendly and helpful owner. The room was a little small for two people though adequate the a two night stay
The hotel was small, yet stylish. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful.
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of october and had a fantastic time. what a cute little hotel! It's in a perfect location and everything you will want to enjoy on a short city break in la rochelle is literally right around the corner...2minute walk to the vieux port, 20 sec walk to some of la rochelle's best restaurants, 10min walk to place du verdun. room was quite compact but beautifully decorated and a very comfortable bed. the staff were lovely and very welcoming. what I liked most was that everything was immaculately clean, oh and the beautiful rooftop terrace. I would definitely reccommend this wee hotel very highly and encourage anyone going to la rochelle for a short break to stay there! I have very little to complain about here. the only thing I didn't enjoy was that our toilet was in a seperate room to the wash basin/shower room and you have to bend down every time you walk into the bedroom because the entrance is very low.(i'm only 5.1" so I just made it)
Superb location, very friendly family run hotel, crisp, clean, comfortable rooms. A great starting point to enjoy La Rochelle from and we would definitely stay at Un Hotel en Ville again. Highly recommended. Due to location parking is limited but public parking in front of the hotel is available. A consideration rather than a problem as we didn't have problems finding a space each day.
Very helpful and friendly owners None
It was clean , Great location .The Hotel is very tastefully done , modern breakfast was available, the staff were very pleasant . The room was to small , no wardrobe , no soap , shower cap or shower gel (although i did ask for a shower gel and got one) , it was noisy .We felt that the room was just to small and for 2 days it was ok but i wouldn`t go for a week or two .
We had a lovely stay at Hotel en Ville- will definitely be back-its 2 minutes from the towers- and in a lovely quiet area too- the best of both worlds. It seems a lot of thought was put in to the decor etc- simple but we really liked it. Only thing I wasnt keen on was the ensuite- sliding door doesnt give a lot of privacy- but this was only a small thing and otherwise we couldn't fault the hotel
Easy to find, car park straight outside front door, good value excellent location close to bars restaurants etc but set back in a quiet square.
The location was very central, staff helpful, good room, breakfast fine coffee / teamaking facilities would improve the stay
Great location ..A little difficult to find...New Hotel very clean and comfortable..Good breakfast and really nice owners..
Trevlig personal som gick att prata engelska med. Skapligt läge vid stadens huvudbusshållplats och vid marknadsplatsen. Aningen murrigt invändigt. Ingen hiss. Om man är ute sent på kvällen nere i hamnen kan det kännas mörkt att promenera genom gränderna tillbaka till hotellet.
