We were warmly welcomed here. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable, as was the bathroom. We had a delightful view of the huge ferris wheel at the end of the street. The location was perfect for walking to the sights we wanted to visit in Marseille, especially around the Vieux Port. Also, there are many restaurants and cafes nearby.

The best part about the hotel is its location. Situated right on the port, you can't be any closer to a nice view point. The staff are friendly, but they don't make you feel like you are welcomed. The room is clean and spacious. There's a kettle in the room so you can make coffee or tea. The free coffee... More

Located right at the Vieux Port east side, walk to MuCem or even up to Notre Dame de la Garde if you are energetic. Room had kettle/tea/coffee and good sound-proofing. Staff gave good recommendation for a restaurant. Can boil your own eggs at breakfast. Metro stop right there, easy to get to St Charles train and bus station.

Wonderful sightseeing hotel location. The accommodations were wonderful, large comfortable room with a lift for our luggage. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Our original room had a faulty air-conditioning unit and our room was changed without question. I would recommend this hotel to all visitors to Marseilles.

Friendly staff. We did not like the smell in the room that was given to us (air conditioning?) and without questions we were given another room of the same level. Rooms are nice though there is not style or atmosphere in the room. Excellent location made the difference. Recommended for turists.
