Warm welcoming,very gentle and sweet staff... Decoration not very my kind but clean...(kinda oldfashioned) Too bad my room did not have a balcony...especially for a price not very cheap Good and complete breakfast but pricy too (18€) but the tables on the balcony,right on the harbour and the amazing view makes you forget about it;-)

We stayed on the 7th floor with a balcony overlooking the harbour. Relatively small hotel but reasonable size rooms and nice fit out. Comfortable lobby and outdoor sitting area. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Free Wi Fi that worked well

Location, service and comfort could not be better. Beautiful room (we had one with a balcony on the 5th floor). Good mini-bar and attractive touches like Mondrian cushions, bathrobes and slippers and Occitane toiletries in the bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful, for example by letting us have a bottle of wine from the bar to enjoy on the balcony...

We stayed five nights in a Club Room with stunning views all round. The staff are very good - the room very comfortable if a tad small - only room for one easy chair. Not a problem when the weather is glorious as it was. The beds good, nice bathroom with splendid large and fluffy towels - spotlessly clean and...

My husband and I had been to London, Paris, Lyon and landed at La Residence in Marseille on a hot August afternoon. We were an hour early for check in but warmly invited to have coffee while we waited for our room to be ready. Our room "wowed" us. So spacious! Such a view! And a little balcony we could...

The hotel is situated right on the main street on the waterfront. We stayed in their suite, which was large and beautifully decorated with antiques. It was missing a balcony, which was unfortunate. If you want one, be sure to book a different room. Their restaurant was excellent (dinner) and their wine list was extensive. Best of all, the staff...

Phenomenal view of the whole old port and surroundings, including the fortress, mountain top church (Basilique de Notre-Dame) through gigantic glass wall and terrace. Room is very large well-furnished but simple. Bed, bathroom, toilet are great. Perfect location for sightseeing. Friendly, helpful staff.

Located next to the TGV train station, all we had to do was cross the street. We were welcomed warmly by a very friendly receptionist, who gave us lots of information on the city. The room had a nice view. There is also a metro station in the train station, and it was just two stops to the old harbor....

Very nice check-in, with clear instructions to the city lot nearby to park our car (11€ per day, a bargain). The room was spacious by any standards, not just French, with an amazing balcony overlooking the old port. With windows shut, the street noise was inaudible. A/C was great, and so were "luxury" bath products. The breakfast was a little...
