La Rochelle

A new design hotel in La Rochelle!

Located on the west coast of France, La Rochelle is famous for its Old Harbour and its aquarium, Europe's largest for tropical fish. As the European capital for sailing boat construction, La Rochelle is home to the Grand Pavois, one of the world's biggest International Boat Nautical Shows. A major conference centre, La Rochelle is today at the heart of one of the fastest-growing tourist areas in France, and is accessible by high speed train and by regular flights to seven airports in the UK and Ireland.

The best hotel in La Rochelle is incontestably the masqhotel, a brand new *** design hotel that opened its doors in June 2006. Located close to La Rochelle's Old Harbour, the masqhotel offers 76 rooms and suites in a design and high tech environment.

An alternative is to stay at the Comfort Hotel St-Nicolas located in the heart of downtown La Rochelle, in the ancient fishing quarter which is today alive with unique shops and traditional markets.

Breakfast in the tropical garden and fireside drink will provide peace and serenity during your stay in La Rochelle.

The Comfort Hotel St-Nicolas offers 79 fully-equipped air-conditioned rooms, wi-fi internet access, a business center, a bar and a private garage.

Each of the 76 rooms and suites of the masqhotel are decorated with a large modern art painting signed by two famous Indonesian painters: Mantra and Geredeg. Originally from Bali but living on the island of Lombok, Mantra and Geredeg are two brothers who do a fantastic job. Check out their web site.
