We are pleased you wrote a feedback about our hotel. I forwarded your compliments to the staff and especially the breakfast team. Be sure that the safety of our customers is crucial. It is true that sometimes the beggars are positioned between the hotel entrance and the bank but we are ensuring they stay far enough away so they do...

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.

As many have already written on TA this hotel is about location: frontal Vieux-Port view from the outside the hotel. You are as central as possible. Rooms are a decent size, modern and split toilet-bathroom. Our room (606) had no view at all as it faced the skylight so there was no opening the window! Breakfast was charged extra and...

Within walking distance of several museums. Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast had a wide assortment of food - cold cereals, yogurt, cheese, bread, pastries, eggs, and meat. Would...

Hotel is superbly situated at the end of the main high street with our room giving a sideways view of the old port. We were on the 4th floor with a balcony which overlooked the cathedral side of the port. Water in the room would have been a nice touch as there was no bar in the hotel or mini...

This hotel is right on the old port, so a stroll along the waterfront is just steps from the front door. We were very lucky and got a huge room (605) on the top floor that had a great view of Notre Dame de la Garde. Wifi was free, breakfast was not, so we grabbed breakfast in the street. If...
