  • We have spent a long time wandering through the old Port in an historic setting very nice and well maintained. Ideal for spending a nice day on the coast.

  • Great location! Very clean. Nice breakfast (a lot of breads). While I would recommend this hotel, there were just small but necessary things "missing" that prevent me from rating it with four stars. A grocery store right next door and restaurants & shops within walking distance. Shalom.
  • Everything is good expect the bathrooms. Leaky seats. But they fixed it in a day....
  • Stayed at fab hotel here. Did lots of walking. Restaurants yummy. Shopping great.
  • I love the sunny weather here in winter, you can take a walk or have a cup of coffee then have a lunch, be relax here and enjoy the beautiful place. So comfortable weather so beautiful here. I will be back here.
  • Very nice and lively section of old La Rochelle.Many interesting sights and very good restaurant. Very good place to enjoy some good seafood.
