This hotel was great...perfect location, friendly helpful staff, comfortable clean room. I will definitely return to stay there again. Next time I will try the breakfast buffet but there are plenty of places to find a french breakfast in the neighborhood too.

The location of the hotel was unbeatable -- right next to the metro station, which was connected conveniently to the airport shuttle at the St Charles Station. It was centrally located by the Old Port, near to a good number of good restaurants and next to a shopping center and a shopping street. It was also walking distance to a...

Stayed one night as a stopover while traveling from Nice to Barcelona. The location is perfect, at the top of the vieux port, dead center, so can walk left and around, or right and around and take in this lovely area of Marseilles. It's also directly opposite Metro station, so very easily reached if traveling into Marseilles by train. We...

Great comfortable beds, ideal location, access to all services with the new area of the port and walks at your door step. Only spent a couple of days there so was terrific to be able to walk out our front door and see the fisherman selling their daily catch on the wharf and be able to walk everywhere. The noise...

Great location right in the vieux port - close to metro/bus stops, key attractions, and the tourism office. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful - so willing to go out of their way to guide you to key sights to see or showing you how to navigate public transportation. Rooms are fairly minimal but spacious - we used this...

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...
