    • DISCOVER THE AMBASSADORS’ HOUSE

      La Maison des Ambassadeurs, the first five-star hotel in La Rochelle, pays tribute to the French ambassador Albert Bodard, the 'son of La Rochelle', through an assertive style, elegant decoration, a bar and refined cuisine.


      Our history

      At the height of the 19th century, the ambassadors of the French Empire exported their lifestyle to the four corners of the world, like Albert Bodard, explorer and ambassador of France, who multiplied the missions to his homes in Mexico, Iran, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Indonesia and China. Despite a life rich in adventures, political intrigues, travel and epicureanism, Albert Bodard always considered La Rochelle as 'his home'.


      Bodard Bar

      The bar at the Maison des Ambassadeurs recreates the festive atmosphere where Albert Bodard entertained around the large period fireplace. The modern decoration with 1950s accents is punctuated with objects gleaned from around the world which tell the story of Ambassador Bodard and his adventures, from the New World to the Far East.

      Guests and locals mingle in a festive and welcoming atmosphere for afternoon tea or evening drinks. A fine selection of wines and local products highlight the heritage of La Rochelle, all accompanied by essential international dishes. Seasonal cocktails inspired by travels to the four corners of the world make the bar a place where all ages meet.

      The Bodard Bar welcomes you every day from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.

    Excellent hotel in the historic center of la Rochelle. All the stars go to the amazing staff, super friendly and professional. The bar offers very good cocktails, and the restaurant (Arco) is a must! Highly recommend it!

    Location is excellent, but this is not a 5-star hotel by any stretch of the imagination, it is let down by terrible service. The location is great if you don’t have a car, otherwise don’t stay here! The number of issues we had and saw others have, was astonishing. They will claim they sent a message asking if you want parking (they didn’t). All of the 5 star hotels we’ve stayed with offer to park your car. Not this place, it’s a stressful arrival and departure, often delayed by the ineptitude of the staff and the crowded parking. The staff in this hotel must be some of the worst we’ve ever encountered; we saw them being rude and quite physical with one group - insulting them behind their backs! We personally experienced their disinterest, like they don’t want to really help and go out of their way to avoid doing so. Maybe they had a bad day, but for a 5-star, you don’t expect anything as bad as this. We didn’t try the restaurant or the bar area because how bad the rest was (maybe that makes up for the rest). Instead we enjoyed the lovely La Rochelle (and the hotel is well located) but there are a lot nicer places with better service. This hotel needs to re-think its parking. My advice, whether on-site or outside, connect with your guests and offer parking in both cases. Please retrain your staff, I’m sure you probably know how bad some of them area, maybe they are frustrated by the daily parking stress, I know I would be.

    We had a beautiful room that looked out over the pool area. Our room had a king bed in its own room, and two twins in the living area. The bathroom had a walk-in shower and a separate large soaking tub. The WC was located off the entryway. The location was great for walking around La Rochelle, which is a very charming town. The parking is a tight squeeze, but we managed okay. Apparently staff typically parks your car for you, but this was not communicated to us upon checkin.
