Su… Solo - 22/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very well located to the centre. Had the worse nights sleep ever the bed was not comfortable at all plus pillows and quilt I think were polyester filling as I was very very hot, albeit the window was open. No kettle or cups in the room which I can understand due to Covid - staff were very friendly and welcoming. Signs for the Exit were not visible when you came out of your room... too much going on with paintwork etc in the corridor... very bland Grey.

good location

Dave L. Couples - 17/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

For an overnight stay the hotel was a typical City Centre Ibis Hotel. Ideally situated in the lovely La Rochelle, the room was not large, typical Ibis furniture/ decoration, but very clean and exceptionally friendly, English speaking, helpful staff. Great location to explore La Rochelle. Even for overnight. Again as normal with any City Centre hotel directions for parking could have been better. Had we parked in the suggested car park the car would have been towed away for the market the next morning. As it was the central car park (400 yards from the hotel) only cost 7 euros for the overnight and not the 15 euros we were told. Would definitely use the hotel again. Thank you.

Good stay

Stayed previously so chose the hotel on location and quality of service. Receptionist efficient and polite. Quick check in. Room spotless as usual. Very quiet and super comfortable bed and pillows. Breakfast very good. Lady in charge of the breakfast service very friendly and engaging. I made a mistake by booking a single instead of a double so had to pay extra at checkout for my wifes breakfast and stay tax. Was dealt with easily and efficiently. My compliments to the housekeeper as I left a valentines present in the room, which she kept on her trolley until I remembered 2 hours later. Thank you for your honesty. All in all, another great stay at Ibis. Ps love the guitar in reception.

As on previous stays very satisfying.

Robin A. Solo - 17/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

As never before, arrived very early (just before 1400 hrs.). Not a single person (staff or guest) encountered for around 10 minutes despite trying to find a staff member. Eventually checked in expeditiously and delighted to have a room with an open outlook over the breakfast area. No problems encountered during stay but sorry to have such an early check-in to a Condor Ferry crossing that breakfast was not an option on this occasion. Very nice to see a very familiar face at the desk later on -a gentleman who has been very helpful and supportive on previous stays.

MarkSharks1861 Solo travel - 13/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

If you’re looking for luxury this is not for you. The room was a bit small and glad I was on my own in a double. However, very clean and comfortable, I was out most of the time so it suited me well. The location is great a short walk to the harbour or the shops are all on your doorstep. I would stay again if I was traveling solo.

Charles H Couples - 20/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

An excellent hotel only a block from the market (open every day; Saturdays are impressive). Easy 10 minute walk to the harbour and 15 to the train station. Friendly staff and clean room and facilities.

Central location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

r0sc04500 Couples - 13/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

Central location to the city caused some issues with trying to park the car in a narrow one way street. Otherwise rooms were clean but small with this type of hotel. Breakfast was good with a large selection.

Extraordinary167420 Couples - 08/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

Wow! Right in the centre - Peak season and not a sound - Best nights sleep, no noise inside or outside. Perfect base for exploring La Rochelle. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. Rooms not big but have everything.

Shame that the rooms are so small

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

grahamaldridge Couples - 08/05/2018 TripAdvisor review

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.

linda12452 Friends getaway - 18/10/2017 TripAdvisor review

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

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

surreypete Couples - 02/06/2017 TripAdvisor review

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.

Great Stay!

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

PotPig1 Couples - 15/10/2016 TripAdvisor review

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.

DearPotpig1, Thank you very much for sharing your comments regarding your stay at Ibis Centre Historique. We ar very pleased that you have enjoyed your stay. Hoping to see you again next year. best regards. D.FONTENY
