It is such a shame that the rooms of this hotel are so so small. Nowhere to hang your clothes so you have to live out of the suitcase and the only place to open the suitcase is on the bed as there is not enough floor space. There is more room in a cheaper hotel like formula 1 but for double the price. It is a shame as it ruins the great location and the friendly staff. Apparently many people who have visited this hotel have made the same comment.



The room was small but comfortable. I was by myself, but it would also be fine for 2 persons. Breakfast was very nice with a good selection of food. I'd stay there again. I wish there were air conditioning, but I'm a spoiled American. I was by myself and did not feel comfortable leaving the window open.



Very small room - with an even smaller bathroom. No view at all from window, large building blocked any light from entering the room. Luckily only stayed one night. On the upside was able to get a nightcap from bar before bed.



What a fab stay! We stayed here last year and returned to this hotel in La Rochelle this year. It was basic (but that is what you are paying for), fresh, clean but better than the usual Ibis. We had a set of sliding doors that led into a little courtyard with chairs and a table. That was a lovely surprise. It can be a little difficult to get to the hotel as the small roads are a network of narrow, cobbled one way's. Its especially difficult if its market day as roads get cut off. The hotel is perfectly situated and a few minutes from the town and sea front.



Great night's stay, Comfy bed and clean room. Excellent clean bathroom with good strong shower and plenty of shower gel.English TVchannels limited but more than usual, would have preferred more English TV. Staff very pleasant and helpful.



Quite basic facilities but very comfortable, clean, quiet and warm. Very comfortable bed. Did not partake of the breakfast but it was offered. Close to centre and harbour, great for shops and restaurants. Recommended.



Very well located hotel in the historic centre of La Rochelle, just a couple of minutes from the port (if you don't spend your time on the way taking pictures), one minute from the Cathedral, the covered market. Rooms are decently sized and have the basic necessities (no tea and coffee-making facilities though). Breakfast is not out of this world but very correct by French standards. Staff is friendly and helpful.



Very good price/value. good location in the centre of the old town near the harbor, clean and neat rooms. We did took advantage of the restaurant because there are a lot of fine places nearby where you can eat. Overall the location worth it's money. If we return we definitely consider it as a accomodation choise.

All OK except room was too warm to sleep well. Aircon not working. Complained and was told that it is disabled off-season... Unacceptable. Cleaning staff efficient and friendly. Parking off-site not too bad. Breakfast was very good.



Ibis La Rochelle Vieille Ville is our favourite hotel In France. It does not pretend to be anything more than modest, but its location in the centre of the old town and the proximity to secure car parking make it ideal for a short stay. The staff are always helpful - some we have known for years. Rooms are small but adequate, and breakfasts are freshly put out and enjoyable. We recommend Ibis Vieille Ville. British couple.



on arrival we received friendly welcome and very good directions to a car park nearby which cost less than 10 euros for the 24 hour stay. the hotel is in a great location in the old town (hence the name) and was only 5-10m walk through pleasant streets to the harbour area with loads of bars and restaurant choice. the hotel room itself was on the small side but for 24 hours stay it does not matter. bathroom well equipped and clean, bed very comfortable. we would recommend this hotel for a short stay in central location



Great location for an overnight in the centre of La Rochelle. The hotel is fine - clean and comforable. There is very limited service in the bar (eg no decaff coffee) and we thought that it was slightly overpriced at 89 euros room only for two people.


Arriving at the small airport at La Rochelle, we took bus number 7 to the Place de Verdun in La Rochelle town centre. It cost us 1 euro 30 each. Just four stops later and in less than 20 minutes, we had arrived.The Ibis hotel is a very short, level, walk away on Rue Fleuriau and takes less than 5 minutes. Most of the reception staff spoke English and were very helpful. There were no bedrooms on the ground floor but there was a lift to all floors and the breakfast room. Free wifi and air con. is available throughout the hotel. Our double room on the first floor was on the small side and the ensuite, with shower only, was even more compact but the rooms were easily cooled with the A/C . The double bed was clean and comfortable with poly/cotton bed linen and good quality pillows. Black-out curtains, plus nets, kept out the strong afternoon sunlight for a relaxing siesta, while it was so hot outside. There was a large family room next door to us, number 118, which seemed good value. It had a large,single bedroom with three single beds in it next to a large double bedroom and also had a larger bathroom with a bath.It cost 150 euros per night. We did not hear any noise through the walls, when it was occupied. We would recommend this hotel as it is so conveniently situated for those, who prefer to travel by public transport, as there is limited street parking. Local supermarkets are a short , level walk away. A visit to the excellent Aquarium is a must and well worth the 15 euros adult entry charge. All information is in French and English. It has a good restaurant with pleasant views. There is also a wide choice of restaurants in town, which stay open till late, creating a great lively atmosphere. For beach lovers, we would recommend a visit to Chatelaillon Plage, which is a short train journey south and an easy walk from the station. Restaurants, cafes etc are nearby. Also the Ile de Re, a small island near La Rochelle, is easily accessed by bus from the Place de Verdun. When we went there, we visited several parts of the island, using our Day Rover but we liked St Martin de Re the best. We enjoyed seeing the town's famous donkeys, wearing their culottes, giving children rides and we enjoyed our delicious lunch at Le Phare restaurant, overlooking the quaint harbour. All in all, we had a great week's holiday in a beautiful part of France.



This was a smaller room than usual even for an ibis hotel but otherwise the hotel was of the standard you would expect of this chain of hotels. Location ideal for shops,restaurants and sight seeing. Parking available close-by at a cost of 8 euros a day through the hotel reception. We cannot comment on the breakfast as we did not eat at the hotel.
