    • DISCOVER THE HOUSE OF AMBASSADORS
      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 Empire of France 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 adventure, political intrigue, travel and epicureanism, Albert Bodard has always considered La Rochelle "his home".

      THE BODARD BAR

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

      Hosts and locals alike 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 unmissable international dishes. Seasonal cocktails inspired by trips to the four corners of the world make the bar a place for all ages to meet.

    Very pleasant staff, comfortable accommodation in a great location. A warning however for anyone arriving in their own car. On the right hand side entrance to the car park there is a low concrete curb that is impossible to see when manoeuvring and it’s easy to damage your car (as I did). I suggested to the staff that a warning balustrade or similar be installed but they seemed totally disinterested even though it was obvious many other cars had hit it previously. On a positive note the hotel has EV charging available.

    Gorgeous hotel at the heart of la Rochelle's old town. Impeccable service. The grand fireplace at the heart of their stylish lobby is my personal favourite.

    We booked 2 rooms paying over $1500 and could never get one parking spot. Our brother was able to get a parking spot right after they told us there were no spots and said there were 6 open down there. They lied to us every time telling us there’s no parking and we spent probably more than other people at this hotel. This is not a five star experience when the parking attendants clearly lied to us and it’s extremely disrespectful. If your a foreigner or from America avoid this place. They give a bad reputation to French people
